Taylor took Matamoros, it was represented to" him by public scandal, lhat there were fifty or sixty persons in it, who were wounded in the battles. The number was considered remarkably small ar.i created some surprise. After tho puh. lie stores w ere taken possession of there was found amons them a quantity of tobacco, a portion of the best was divided out among our troops, and the remainder. Gen. Tay lor ordered to be sold at auction, the pro ceeds to be apj'lied to the relief of the Mexi can wounded soldiers. This led to some examination, when to the surprise of all, the "commission" appointed to enquire in to the number, reported nearly four hundred sick and wounded. This startling fact, jus tiiied the American estimate, of the deadly etll-ct of our arms, which was so flatly con tradicted, by the number of wounded, first reported as being in the city by the Mexi cans. A visitor in Matamoros, would find the Hospitals places of melancholy interest, and sources of constant surprise. They devel oped iraits of tho Mexican character, no where else exhibited. The veil is torn away in these receptacles of suilering humanity, and it was a matter of serious speculation, whether the horrors of war, were not eclipsed, by the horrors of the social condi tion, ot the poor wretches, whose mutilated todies were strown around. Not a street ia .Mataruoros was destitute of its Hospital, and as you move about, a curtain before the door of some private house would blow aside, and reveal the cot, with the attenu ated form stretched under a sheet, surround ed by siieut nurses, that seemed to be dark ures, wrought into the solid walls against which, thev relieved. ( There were plenty of excellent houses for the Mexicans to place their wounded in, but their officials paid no attention to corn kit, even where it was as easily obtained, me miserable places m which the w ound ucieuiea cauie iieid. llence trie meson, a dirty low building, the public Inn of the place, where horsea and men find with equal accommodation a lodging for the night, was chosen among other indifferent places as a Hospital. la the city better buildings were .repriated to such uses, but in all, were the sOme indifferent attentions, or rather neleoK'." of the invalids.

All ihese various faces peered out from among loose folds of white cloth, that fall about them, giving them the look of Arabs, oi some eastern crew of a pirate snip. And vet these were all Mexicans, and might have been, without offence to the people, blood relations, members of the same family. ( n whM-e vou would and there were evi dences of the Artillery. Ringgold had writ tUr, ctrpmrth of "his arm," with terrible psrrnctiveness, within the walls of the Mex ican hospitals. Arms and legs gone, shat tered bodies, ghastly wounds, all to hidious r tl,p musket, were every wnere to De seen. It was surprising that men could live thus torn to pieces. And yet the greatest suffering apparently, was from a musket kill. Had it been crape or of heavier materia!, it would have done its work ef- fectuallv. and left its victim painless in death. As it was, it had gone through the breast, tearincr the fine machinery of the lungs to pieces, and yet left vitality enough, to have them move" on in their ruins, pois oning the whole frame with impure blood, and leaving the patient to sutler beyond the imagination to conceive. Poor soldier, his breath, rattled and tore away at his.vi tals, his sufferings were, indeed, a. dark spo on the bloody page of war. Amidst all their misery and desolation amidst these places, so humbling to pride so sacrificing to vanity, woman was there dcvted to a husband or brother; she sat in the dust, fanned away the torturing insects that lived on their blood, and revelled in their wounds,, sanctifying the most menia offices by her spirit and influence, and shed ding by her smiles, by her silent attentions by her teachings ot hope in another world the only bright rays that are seen to glim mer in a Mexican Hospital. li-opic. Captain J. C. Fremont. Biography may well be said to ba "histo ry teaching by examples." I here is no department of literature more attractive, while there is none more instructive, when it presents the character of the individual in its true colors. And there is no species of biography more useful as incentives to youthful exertion than that which delineates the characters of those who have risen to honor and fame by their own efforts. For the following sketch "of Capt. Fremont, we are mainly indebted to an article in the Washington Union. ' Captain Fremont is a native of South Carolina, and the architect of his own fame and fortune, lie was left an orphan at the early age of four years, and at seventeen he began to provide for himself, and for those connected with him. For three years he taught mathematics, perfecting his educa tion, and giving all his earnings beyond his necessary support, to his mother and two younger children. At the age of twenty he was employed on the rail road explorations to connect the Atlantic Ocean and the Ohio river at Charleston and Cincinnati. While thus employed he was appointed by Presi dent Jackson as one of the junior officers ot the 1 opographical Lngmeers. Before he entered upon his duties, he triumphantly passed through a rigid examination by a board of eminent officers. After his appointment he spent the first year in the topographical survey of the Cherokee country, under the command of Cap. Vilhams. The next year he was sent as an assistant to Mr. Nicollet to the valley of the upper Mississippi, and was en gaged two years in that remote region, aid mg in the collection ot materials, and mak- observations upon 'which the hydro- graphic and topographic map of Nicollet and Fremont was constructed. In l54iJ he was appointed commander of a separate ex pedition for the exploration of the country between the Mississippi river and the Rockv mountains. The result of this expedition, and his report upon it immediately made his name known as one ot the distinguished explorers of the age. In 1S12-44, he went uoon his expedition to Oregon and Califor nia, the report of this expedition has been nublished bv order of Congress, and has at tracted universal attention for its lively de-s.-rintlnns nnd its scientific details. In 1845 he set out upon a third expedition. i i "Perhaps." savs the article in the Union, "no man of his age, in any country, has gone through such an amount of labor and exer tion of body and mind as Capt. Fremont. , Frc-rt the age of twenty the canopy of Hea ven ha3 been his covering, the mountains and plains, the lakes andrivers, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Gulf of JMexico to the head of the Mississippi, have been his home. "His military reconnoisance in which he was engaged, became also sci entific explanations, and geography, botany, astronomy, meteorology, receive, as much attention from him as if each had been his sole pursuit. The fruits of all these re searches are recorded in journals daily writ ten in the field. Materials for maps and drawings are daily collected, a few months ofonice labor prepares' all for publication; and without waiting to see any thing pub- ished, the impatient gentleman immediate- y sets on upon new expeditions." Captain r remonrs lavorite study is math ematics botany his favorite recreation ;. all the sister sciences come in for a share of his attention, while he' is versed in Latin and Greek, French arid Spanish. His whole lfe is divided between field labors and liter ary studies. "'From his earliest youth he seems to have acted upon the maxim "vila, sstns uteris, mors est." Life without learn ing is death: Capt. Fremont's career af fords a striking example to our youth of what may bo accomplished by sober study and diligent habits; his success a strong en couragement to young men who have to ad- il r l . . L AVfirtina ' ' vance uieuiseives uv men vwn cigmuiw. Capt. Fremont is light and slender in his person, very youthful in his appearance, and wholly different from what would be JooKed or in the leader of such extended and ad venturous expeditions." It is related that when, in the fall of 1S44, he presented him self before Mr. Wilkins, then Secretary of War, the Secretary could hardly believe that he was; Lieutenant Iremont, just re turned from the expedition to Oregon and California. "To see the leader of such an expedition, in the person of such a stripling, was a surprise from which the honorable Secretary could not recover himself until after repeated interrogatories." Capt. Fre mont married the daughter of Senator Ben ton. It is gratifying to learn that a man who has carved out his own fame has been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, and should opportunity offer we doubt not he will acquire additional reputation on the held of battle. - Aaion Burr and Hiss UXoncriefFe. The Mayor of New York has taken the venerable old mansion at the lower corner of Broadway, No. 1, as his residence, and Gen. Taylor Headed. The Singular simplicity that marks Gen. Taylor's personal appearance and habits nave become a.subject of universal lame. It is curious, that a soldier, so eminent in all the qualities of discipline, should be so citizen-looking in his own appearance. A curious scene occurred at Point Isabel, at the time Com. 'Conner appeared off that place with his fleet, to give succor to the "xVrmy of Occupation." Com. Connor is a naval officer that is not only strict in his dress, but" has a Philadelphia nicety about it; lie appears m lull and splendid uniform onall public occasions, being the exact counterpart in this particular of Gen. Tay lor. . - At -the proper time, Com. Conner sent word to Gen-. Taylor, that he would come ashore to pay him a visit of ceremony. This put old "ltough and Beady" into a tremen dous excitement. ' If Com. Conner had quiet ly, come up to his tent, and given him a sailor's gripe, and set down on a camp chest, and talked over matters in an old fashioned way, Gen.Tay lor would have been prepared; but, to have the most carefully dressed offi cer in" our Navy, commanding the finest fleet, to come in full uniform, surrounded by all the glittering pompol splendid equip ments to pay a visit of ceremony, was more than Gen. Taylor had, without some effect, nerye to go through with; but, ever equal to emergencies, he determined to compliment Com. Conner, and through him the Navy, by appearing in jull uniform, a thing his officers associated with him for years, had never witnessed. In the meantime Com. Conner, was cog- itating'over the most proper way to com- nliment Gen. Tavlor.- Having heard of his peculiar disregard to military dress, he wrould make the visit in a manner compor ting to Gen. Taylor's habits, and consequent ly equiped hiself in plain white drilling, and unattended, came ashore. The moment old "Rough and Ready," heard that Com. Conner had landed, he abandoned some heavy worki he was per sonally attending to about the camp, and precipitately rushed into his tent, delved at the bottom of an old chest, and pulled out a uniform coat, that had peacefully slumbered for years in undisturbed quietude, slipped himself into it, in his haste, fastening it so that one side of the standing collar was three button holes above the other, and sat him self down as uncomfortable as can well be imagined. With quiet step and unattended, her feet. She never blanched, but drawing a pistol in turn from her vest, took deliber ate aim at him, and then lowered the wea pon, saying as she turned on her heel, "no, you poor "contemptible wretch, it would disgrace even a woman to lav vou!" The affair of course, made a great noise on the island, but what was the - issue, we are unable to state. The boat swung olf soon after the events we have detailed, leaving both parties ashore. Bujftdo Coin. Advertiser. . has quite rejuvenated it, o far as external .Con. Conner presented himself at Gen.Tay appearance is concerned. This house was occupied by the Colonial Governor of New York; Sir Henry Clinton, and afterwards was the Headquarters of General Putnam, where he resided with his family, Aaron Burr being then his aid-de-camp, and living there with him; and it was here that the celebrated and romantic intrigue took place betw-een tho unscrupulous Burr and that fairest of his victims, Miss Moncrieffe, who beiner taken prisoner as a British spy, was held in custody mansion. A writer in a New York paper gives these incidents con nected with the story: "Miss Moncrieffe, the celebrated British spy, was arrested near the fort at West Point, riding on horseback and accompanied by a servant. She was held in custody as a prisoner of war, to be exchanged, for a general officer, whenever one should be ta ken. She was permitted to enjoy the lar gest liberty, and indulged freely in her fa vorite occupations of drawing and painting. Every one admired the beautiful productions of her genius, which she desired to send to her father, but they accidentally passed through the hands of Aaron Burr, who as tonished tho U. S. officers by detecting un der the - paintings accurate plans of the A merican fortifications, intended as a guide to the British in their proposed attack on west romt! uurr was up to au sorts oi devilment and intrigue, and this fortunate discovery insured him a passport to the ac quaintance of the young amazon. The heartless Burr seduced her probably she was a willing victim, as she knewvenough of human nature to know that a wretch who would betray a female would betray his countryj and she undoubtedly expected to linda traitor in her seducer. But she was disappointed. Burr's property, in this instance at least, held him to his allegiance! wnue nis mnuence with the American Gov ernment, as well as her sex, saved her from the ignominious death ofyoung Andre. "The British and her father, to make her appear a mere child, represented her, as be ing only fourteen years of age at the time of her capture by the Americans a decep tion as she afterwards confessed. She was nearer twenty-two than fourteen." Ax Iscidext. One day last week Mr. T. M. Smith, of this city, as he walked up Bul- lit street, "saw a child about three years of age lying m a window twenty-five or thirty feet high. The pavement below was solid brick, and the child was so nearly balanced on the sill that the smallest agitation would precipitate it upon the pavement to its cer tain destruction. No alarm "could be rais ed, nor a word said; Mr. S. walked slowly along afraid almost to breathe aloud lest it might be fatal. Just as he got under the window down came the little urchin not on the pavement,, but luckily, right in his arms, and brought him by the force of its fall nearly to the pavement. ' The mother flew out half distracted; but happily all was safe.- Louisville Democrat, V lor's tent, the two soldiers shoot-hands, both in exceeding astonishment at each other's personal appearance. . m . t . . The wags in the armv say, that tne above contains the only authentic account where Gen. Taylor was ever headed, and that since thst time he has taken to linen round abouts, of the largest dimensions with more pertinacity then ever. N. O. Tropic. A Desperate Woman. Readers of newspapers have'doubtless no ticed within the year past occasional allu sions to a woman in the Western country, who complained of terrible wrongs she had suffered at the" hands of a man formerly a resident in' this city, and threatened some dreadful retribution. The last notice of her stated that she had left Lafayette, Indiana, in masculine attire and armed, and made her way to some town in tho interior of Ohio. - - Last Saturday morning while the Great Western was lying at Mackinaw, it was whispered round that one of the passengers, wno seemea a trim ooy or sixteen or eigh teen years was in fact a woman. Captain Walker invited the youth and one of the principal citizens of Mackinaw into the of fice, and there being questioned, the suspi cious passenger declared herself a woman, and gave her reasons for assuming the dress she wore. She said she was married, "as she supposed a few years ago in this city to a man whose name our informant was una ble to give, and after living with' him some years and having two or three children, her husband told her the marriage was all a sham, that he had another lawful wife and contemptuously cast off her and her children. Under these circumstances she had svvorn to have revenge or justice. She had ascer tained that Ihe man. who had thus deeply wronged ner, was living at Mackinaw, and she had come there to obtain a recognition of her rights, or vensreance in default. Upon this she exhibited two loaded pistols which she carried about her person. After some further conversation she gave up the pistols and a messenger was despatched to the husband with an intimation that a pas senger on the Western wished to see him. He soon came on board, and the two parties met face to face. The woman upbraided him with all the wrongs he, had inflicted up on her, and demanded reparation for herself and children by , a Jegal marriage, at the same time, with all the wrecklessness of a woman goaded to desperation, threatening his life, with the most vehement assevera tions if he failed to do her justice. , 1 At this point the door opened, arid the man who had cowered before her, shot out like lightning and escaped to the shore. She followed soon after, ascertained his place of business, acd sought another inter view.

Palo Alio Churchill. The following thrilling sketch is related by a friend of mine, as having occurred near Galhpohs a few days since, as he was ascen ding the Ohio River. I regret that inv in formant has forgotten the name of the hero of the affair. A Httle boy about three vears old hac been playing about the deck of the steam boat, and climbing upon the netting work that enclosed it, when in an unlucky mo ment he accidentally fell overboard! In stantly a young Tennesscan, who was strol ling near by, sprang into the river, and soon rose wun me miie suuerer in ms arms. The boat was moving on rapidly, and some minutes passed before the pilot could be in formed of the accident, to stop her speed: but tar in the distance the noble Iclldw was seen swimming' toward the boat then all at once he' seemed to sink with his precious burthen, and some thought they heard a leariui snries as ne went aown: uui soon he was seen crossing the troubled wake o .i. . . i i i. ... .i uio vessel uuu ua on ne swam lor me shore, which, by the blessing of God, he soon reached. The boat had now rounded to, and soon approached him, when the yawl was sen out, and both tne cniid and its preserver were brought on board. I he little fellow, smiling as though he had just come out ol his tub after a morning bath, ; was placed in his mother's arms, who until that moment fortunately was not awrare of the accident. The scene at this moment was very affect ing. The gentleman had fainted as ho came aboard, and was being carried to his slate room, but revived as the youug mother stood before him and attempted to express the unutterable gratitude she felt towards hint for saving the life of her child. She then desired to know the name of its deliv erer, that she might change the name of trie little one, to his. He rose upon his feet, shook at least a bucket-of-water from his hair, and looking at the child, exclaimed, It's a nigger, I'll sweari" It was not exact hi a negro baby, but one of the Anglo-Afri can breed, about the color of a new saddle. Our hero then took the child into the cabin, and dipping its little head in a bowl of bay rum, christened it, in the presence ol the as sembled passengers, "Pa fa Alto Churchill" the mother winding up this intensely inter esting scene by stating that "from dis time to ebber and ebber de chile should hah no udder name but dat."i -. k ruiu the Jaurul of i .111.,.,, Three Pegs.
