Benjamin Story, Esq. Among other of our cotemporaries we aided in giving circulation to a report, that on ihe receipt of the news of the breaking out of war, or the commencement of hostilities, os the National Intelligencer preiera 10 can it, Benjamin Story patri otically stepped forward and offered to place $500,000 at the disposal of the Governor, as the sinews of war. We of course said something pretty of M Story on the occasion; but we now take it all back. He did, as they say in th florth,"no such a thing"-indeed he refus ed.point blank, any such accommodation The Governor being in a tight place yesteraay morning 'cornered,' as they call it in vau street inconsequence o the bill providing for the payment o the balance ot the outfit of the lour re giments mustered into service agreeable to the requisition oi wen. Taylor, he went to Mr. Story at the Bank of Louis iana, of which he is President, and af ter a brief ceremony of salutation, ask fd him if he could not loan him $9000 till the appropriation bill pending before the Legislature passed? Mr. S. with a negative shake of the head promptly re plied "No!" The Governor bade him one of those courteous good mornings which none like him can bid, and pro ceeded to the door but returning sud denly he said, his innate'poltteness nev er forsaking him, "(Jan I not, Mr. Story, get it from the Bank by paying. as I mean to do of course, the current in terest?" "Well,", said the President of the Bank to the Governor of the State, "I don't know: make out your proposition and I will lay it before the board at its next meeting." The Governor after another of those graceful good-bye's which can only be acquired in nature s school, withdrew, and thus were dissipated dissolved into thin air, the patriotism and liberali ly of Benjamin Story, the President of the Bank of Louisiana. We are thus particular in reciting the circumstances, because it is our desire, in every instance, to tell the truth; and because we had before, unintentionally )ld of Mr. Story that which was not the truth or the fact. But in relation to the $9000 loan, we think it but right to state, that on appli cation being made to the President of the Canal Bank, it was immediately placed at the disposition of the Cover nor, with an intimation that "there is more where that was" as the boy said when the snow flake' fell in his eye. City of Matamoras. As this city has but recently been razed to the ground by the American forces, the following description thereof, from a correspond ent of the New York Tribune, may not prove uninteresting at the present time: Matamoros is an old Spainsh city, containing about 7,000 inhabitants, and is beautifully situated on the southern bank of the Rio Grande.within its folds, so that its front and rear are both on the river. Seen from the American side, it has every appearance of being an Amer ican town. The streets intersect each other at right angles, and appear to be lined with many varieties of shade trees which give the town an air of coolness and renders its appearance very invitn?, Many of the buildings are built of rock, and in the modern style of architecture. The Cathedral, market, and buildings occupied by the military, are among the finest. The dwellings of the poorer classes are constructed with canes, brush, mud, and the like materials, and are essentially Mexican. The town f ... ormeriy contained double its present number of inhabitants, and was a place of some importance. This rapid de cline is owing to their internal commo tions and the growing indolence of the people. I he citizens are all under the rule of the military, and are obliged to provide for them. The military is su preme, and the orders of their general (Meji) are law. The city has several fortifications, armed with guns of different calibres, and a force of 5 or 600 men is kept in them constantly. Since our arrival they have increased their force to nearly 3000 men, and have been working night and ciay upon tne defences of the place. They have thrown up peveral batteries which bear upon our camp, and we are quietly waiting for them to give us a ball. -- Should they favor us, we shall return the compliment with a series of them, for the Spanish are very particu lar in matters of ettiquette. Our camp is directly opposite the town, and 800 yards from their batteries. We are en gaged in throwing up a field-work, con structing gun-batteries, and taking such precautions as are necessary to enable is to maintain our position. This eems important, 6i'nce our intercourse 'ith them is entirely prohibited by the Mexican authorities, and their attitude is decidedly hostile. Laic From Yucatan. The Yucatan schooner rtntura.Cwl xrais, arrived yesterday from iJampca chy; we have papers by her to the 8th instant. El dmigo Del Pueblo of the 5th publishes the Governor's message at the opening of Congress. We see it stated that the Jsamblia would not admit the Mexican Commissioners, as they were determined to remain entirely separated iruiu vnai xvepooiic. J lie editors of the El Jlmizo del Pueblo suggest that the Peninsula of Yu catan will, before long, adopt important measures, that will determine the course it must follow hereafter, and how it is to be governed; which, at all events, it believes must be much better than du ring the time it was under the Mexican Government. Ijov. liarbachano s address to the k it .. . nssemoiy was generally approved: it breathes a liberal and a patriotic spirit. From private letters, dated 13th inst.. we learn that Congress was still in ses sion at Merida, and would adjourn a bout the 1st of June, previous to which they would no doubt confirm the declara tion made some time since, of the State of Yucatan to separate from the Gov ernment of Mexico. A revolution broke out in the Depart- ment of Tobasco about the 1st inst.. headed by a man named Bruno. The result was not known at Campeachy wnen tne Ventura sailed. 1 he news of the blockade of the iiiuuuiui ine ivio uranae nau oeen re ceived at Campeachv but they had not leardol thefecual commencement of hos- tilities. The Yucatacoes are said to be opposed to rendering any aid to Mexico n case of a war with the United States. Great respect is paid to American citi zens and their property. Several ves-' sels that recently arrived from the U. States, without having furnished them selves with triple invoices of their car goes, which the laws of Yucatan require, were not seized the proper authorities mmcdiaicly gave them permission to discharge their cargoes. The barque Tarquin, of this port,' sailed from Campeachy for Laguna on the 12th, to load. The latest accounts from Mexico re ceived at Havana, were up to the 1st inst. We have received information from a very reliable source, that it was known at Javana that fourteen of the departments f Mexico had notified their government, that if the scheme of establishing a mon archical government were enforced upon them, they would be compelled, in self efence, to ask for admission into the Union of, the United States of America t is said that General Alvarez, of Aca- pulaco, who declared against the Mexi- an government during the administra- tion,of Almonte as Minister of war, is at the head of the liberal party.
