PAYETTE J SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1846. RELIGIOUS NOTICE. The services of the Episcopal Church will be held regularly, until further notice, by Rcv'd E. Keep, in the Grand Jury room at the Court House, every Sabbath, atjhalf-past 10 o'clock, in the morning, and 3 o'clock in the afternoon, or at the ringing of the bell of the Baptist Church. FROM SANTA FE. The latest information from Santa Fe, represents matters as peaceablo there be I ween our troops and the Mexicans though some of the letter writers intimate that they would not be surprised at on outbreak, and an attempt on the part of the Mexicans to retake the place. There is said to be much disorder since Gen. Kearney left There is a large number of troops there, and, idle, as they are, we are not surprised to hear of disorder. Col. Doniphan, it is stated, after settling some Indian difficulties, will proceed South, to Chihuahua, provided he can get the necessary means of trans, portation of which there are doubts ex pressed. The Mormons have not left for California. News had been received at Santa Fe from Gen. Kearney; ho was about 200 miles from that place, and had abandoned his wagons, and would proceed with pack mules. It was known at Santa Fe, that Magoffin, Connolly, and oilier lead crs, who had set out for Chihuahua, had been robbed by the Indians. The other leaders were awaiting definc news from Gen. Wool, before procecding-.JFetr were entertained that the troops at SantMFe would suffer during the winter forjwarit of provisions. 1 here is abundance pi storej at lieni s 1' ort, but it is with greatvdiwcultj they can be earned forward to Santa Fe- the"'mules and wagons being in a wretched condition, and the season far advanced Conquests in California or New Mexico, says a correspondent cf the Republican are a mere matter of parade resistance being out of the question. The poor devils neither, know nor care any thing ahou Government of either the United States or Mexico. The only question with them is "Who will pay most for a sheep or a wo. man's smile?" The former article is be coming quite dear, as our provision trains come up slowly. The latter is something of a drug in the market, for two reasons , In the first placc,ourmen have no money iiovernmeni uran ucing uncurrent, am the disbursing officer! having nothing else to offer. The second reason shall be name less. They have sent to St. Louis to have 8100,000 in specie brought out, but it wil' be towards spring before it arrives, if it arrives at all. Col. Benton's remarks about the issue of this War office currency, were perfectly correct; and they are now hawked about Santa Fe at 10 per cent, discount, and no buyers at that. In the meantime, the first of November the time when the Volun . ! l it . . leers arc to ue paw, according to law is rapidly approaohing. One hundred dollar drafts which is the lowest denomination are not a convenient kind of funds for sol dicrs, even if they were at par. I hap pened to be at the office of the Quarter Master to day, and found his Sergeant try ing to buy six mules for the Mormon Bat talion, for which the Mexican asked $75 each. He finally (after consulting with a trader) agreed to take $100 each, in Gov ernment checks! Whether or not they were purchased, I am not able to say. I mention these things merely to show tho short sighted policy of this hard money adminis tration. We look forward with gloomy anticipa tions to tho future. There are not provis ions enough in the country, including al! that ore now here or expected, to lust be yond the first of February. The country cannot furnish the deficiency, even were there funds to buy it. Three thousand armed men in a stato of starvation, is a mass not easily kept in subordination! particularly when a largo portion of thrm come out as armed emigrants to Califor niaa region which none of them (save the Mormons) will ice, in the service of the United States. If they go in the spring, they will go on their own hook mark this prediction! Mas. Connor vs. Estate of Gev Van Nrs. There is a trial going on at Wash ington City, in which a Mrs. Connor, whose name has appeared in tho newspapers fre ijuently of late, figures as plaintiff. Slit sues for the recovery of an interest in the estate of Gen. Van Ness, Fate of Washing ton City, alledging that she is his widow. The counsel for the heirs the General bu ying died without a will treat tho whole matter as an attempted fraud. MORE TROOrS CALLED FOR! Requisitions have been sent out from the War Department, culling into the service of the United States nine additional regi ments of volunteers to serve during the war with Mexico, unless sooner discharged. They are asked for from tho following States: One regiment of infantry fiom Ma-s.; One of infantry from the Slate of N. Y.; Ono of infantry from Pennsylvania; One of infantry from Virginia; One of infantry from North Carolina; Ono of infantry from South Carolina; Oncof infantry from Louisiana; One of infantry from Mississippi; and One of mounted men from Texas. This call camo upon the country very unexpectedly, and has created no little ex citetnent. The givings-out of the Wash ington Union, wero such as led to the belief that no more troops would be called for and this led to the belief on the part of the people that the war would soon be termi nated. The Secretary of War, only a few days before the call above was made, wroic the following letter: War Department, ) October 15, 1816. J Sir: In reply to your Icilrr of the 12ih in stnnt, 1 have the honor to inform you that it is not contemplated to make m y further call on the Executive of your State for any voluntc-er or militia force, with a view to the existing war with Mexico. A sufficient amount of force for the prosecution of thai war has, it u believed, been already called into service. I have the honor to be, Very respectfully, """"o. ' Your ohedient servant, WT'TJ'b.MARCY, Secretaiy of War. Mr. Willard Savlsbcry, Georgetown, Susoex county, Delaware. Upon this subject the Republican re marks, "the public will, very naturally, in quire, what had occurred between the 11th of November, when this letter was pub. lished in the Union, and the ICth, when the call for nine additional regiments of vol u nice r s is announced? The tone of the official paper, instead of being of a very belligerent cast, had taken an opposite di- rection. Indeed, it ridiculed the idea of more troops being wan'.ed, and rapped some of the writers over the knuckles for suggestions that Gen. Taylor might be in need of more men to carry on the war vigorously. But, whatever the cause for this sudden departure from the coy reserve of the Administration in calling for troops before the late five million loan was ob tained, the movement furnishes cvidencp in itself, that Mr. Pci k has ceased to hope for any immediate peace with Mexico. This we llMnk,irf 'pitied point, and the sooner- therefore, tbesc men are embodied, and as maiWiirrofe, if necessary, the sooner are wo likely to bring Mexico to terms. There will be, of course, no want of alacrity in lag-JUf-tr,aitt,sr4rQ this additional rf force -wHTsWin bernttlTfe way to Tampion, or anyjothcr point to which it may bo or foVed In i'3 connexion, we cannot forbear the remark, that it was at least unfortunate for the country that the regiment of Missouri, Volunteers, assembled at Ft. Leavenworth, two or three months ago, were so summa rily disbanded. They would have been, by this time, if kept in garrison there, effi cient soldier, ready to march to any point at which their services might bo wanted, and the Government would have saved the hundred thousand dollars which was paid to them fordoing nothing. IN D FAN DEPREDATIONS. We understand that Maj. Scmxfji and Lieut. AnvsTiioNo, U. S. A., have arrived at Fort Leavenworth from Santa Fe. They confirm, we learn, the information, pre viously received, of the robbery of a train of United Slates wagons, by the Indians. near the pass of the Arkansas. There were thirty wagons and one hundred and sixty mule") in the train, and they were accompanied by forty men. The wagons were filled with clothing and hospital stoi cs, commissary s stores, sugar, coffee, &c. They took possession of every thing, ex cept tho wagons, and made ofT with the property. This outrage was committed by a party of two hundred Pawnee Indians; and little opposition was made by the mcn as they were without ammunition. They cut open and scattered about three hundred sacks of flour to the four winds of heaven. The prairie, for miles around the spot where the robbery was committed, is said to have been as while as if covered with snow. The villainous rascals, imme diately upon getting possession of the wag ons, set to work powdering themselves, and the coler of their yellow skins was soon changed to ono of snowy whiteness. The sport of snow-balling each other with hands full of fl mr they enjoyed to a great dc irop; and after making the most of ihe frolic, they bedecked themselves out in the n icks, and in tiiin garb several were seen ly the men who returned to Fort Leaven worth, on tho plains, two or throe days after the robbery. One fellow had mod eled his sackioto a turban, and the brand, Lf. S., wus immediately in front. The let- tors were quit,) uiiiute'iiiililu to thorn, but nevertheless they seem t i prize them quite M.it ... .1' I 1 I -I . .'It "'h'" i i" un uieein cionis maeie, oi thm tho '.S. vviig contrived to be wu .-.itiv.-u in ii inn, i no i niihei y was doubt tho effect of gross negligence. no TOBACCO CONVENTION. The Tobacco Planters of several coun ties in Kentucky held a Convention on the 16th inst., at which they recommend the retention of tobacco in the Kentucky mar kets,, fur sale there, at least until the 15th of May, of each year. This course is advised as a remedy against existing evils in the New Orleans Market. The object is to establish tobacco marts in Kentucky, which will be under the control of its laws. A committee appointed for that purpose, reported the following resolutions Resolved, That the tremendous frauds prnfttisd Dgainsl the tobacco interests of Kentucky in the city of New Orleans have justly Rlarmed not only the planter, hut tho purchaser of tobacco, and imperiously demand of the farmer that he seek, not only new giinrantces of his rights, but that he maintain them in his own hands. Resolved, That all experience has proven that a home market is the best market whenever it in attainable; that this grneral and universal truth is particularly applicable to those forrign markets hampered by a Legislature over which we have no control. Resolved, That tha tobacco planters of Kon lucky have been long enough the "hewers of wood and the drawers or water for the fallings of New Orleans; and that the clearest dictates of policy and interest, both Stato and individual, demand (hat they build up for themselves a mar. ket for their great staple at home. Resolved, Thnt a committee of five ha appoin ted to draft an ad drrss to the tobacco planters of Kentucky, exposing the frauds olid inconvernen ccs of the New Orleans market, and selling forth the advantages of a home market for that staple. After much discunsion on tho part of several members of the convention, touch ing the questions connected with the pro tection of tho tobacco trade, W. L. Under wood tendered the following resolutions to the convention, which were unanimously adopted: Rtsolved, That while the legitimate range of this convention is necessarily confined to the few counties here represented, nevertheless it recom mends not only to the planters in the counties represented, but to those of the State at large, to accumulate their tobacco at the most convenient and accessible point or points within the S'nte, promising and affording facilities for the sale of it, and retain it Ihfre subject to salo at least until ihe 12;h of May of each year, until some permanent remedy is made for the evil now complained of, and if not sold by that time, subject to such other disposition as (he owner may direct. Resolved, That the Legislature of Kentucky be, and it is hereby respectfully requested, at its next session, seriously to consider ihe best means of fostering and protecting the general tobacco interests of the State; and how far this great sta. pie, by the estiihlishment of public warehouses, at appropriate points within our own limits, may be msdo to contribute, without imposing im proper burthens on the planter, to the revenue of Kentucky, rather than to the revenue of a sister Slate. Resolved, further, That the tobacco growing states in the great .Mississippi valley be invited to co operole with Kentucky in the central fester- ing and protecting of thn tobacco interest, by urging on the authorities of tho General Govern ment tho consummation of such treaties and com mercial regulations as are calculated to place the great staple of tobacco upon its legitimate looting in lorcign mantels ol the world. Tho chair then appointed the following gon'le men to prepare the address to the nconla of Ken tnchy, contemplated in the fourth resolution, viz: Thomas S'rangJ, W. L. Umlfiwood, J. Virden, G:-o. I). Blakey. Hubert r. Pulliam, J. W. Go rin and S. A. Atchison. BOMBTUi7MENT OF TOBASCO. ina expedition or comir.otioic retry against Tobasco was successful. We copy the following particulars of the affair, given oy one who was in the attack: On the 17th, Corn. Perry left with tho small vessels for Tobasco, surprising in that river a number of prizes. The city was summoned to an unconditional surrender, and upon an em phatic ' 7iUica," the Commodore opened on it bom his own vessel, the Vixen, the fire being returned with musketry from the houses and bar ricades acioi3 the streets, The following day, tho foreign Consuls and some of the principal inhabitants sent olf, under a flag of truce, to Loin. Terry, praying that ho would order the firing to cease, statin? that the military command ant had neither propeny nor interest theio, and that the avenues fiom the city were guarded by the soldiers, preventing the escape of women and children, some of whom had been killed b" the bursting of the shells. The Commodore, like a brave man, at ct.cc gave up the idea of the empty honor of reduuii.e tho nlace. and promised to liave the next duy, if not .nolcsud. The next morning, however, Lieut. Parker, of the Mississippi, drifted wiihin a few yards of the shore in a small sloop, with Midshipman Wheclock and some twenty men with him, where ho was fired on by n large body of soldiers. Ha defended himself gallantly and successfully, with the loss of but ono man, nnd hauled off into the stream. Lieut. Charles W. Mori is (aci g as Coin. Perry's aid) was despatched with orders to abandon her, who, in the execu tion of lies duty, full mortally wounded. He was shot in the neck, the bull glancing down, wards, and survived till the third day. His fall, the first officer (and a brave and accomplished one he was) lost to the navy in this war, allowed little mercy to bo shown in tho fire which was immediately n sound by our squadron; and a coris'duiable part of the town had been battered down when Com. Perry concluded that they had been sufficiently punished, and left for Anion Lizardu wilh his prizes. When ihe Armadi left Vera Cruz, the srtna dron were preparing for an expedition, the des'i. nation of which has not been made public, but was presumed to be Tumpico or a point not far from Tobasco. Hamnibai. Joukmal. YVe havo received the second number of a paper bearing the above ti- tie, issued bom Hannibal, Missouri, by 11. D. La Cossiit. It is a hard locofoco paper, of res pectable size. We copy the above from the Fayette (Mo.) Times. V'e can essure tha Ediior of the Times that, so far from being a ILird, wa never have been, ate not, and never will be a democrat, hard ii oi lenai an Ming as mo picstni, orgnmza. lion ol the two parties sliali continue.

They ere excluded from Ihe market by tho high prices of freights, conso- quent, somewhat, upon ihe low stage of tho river. It will always be so until something is done to la cilitate the means of getting to market. We have a rich fertile country; yet, for all practical purposes, it might as well not be bo- I wish, therefore, to tail ihn attention of the Editors of the newspapers in Plalte City, Weston, St. Jo seph, S.ivanneh, Fayette, Glasgow, Columbia, Fulton, Paris, Bowling green, St. Charles, Pal myra and Hannibal, to the propriety of urging a Convention of the people at some suiluble point, say Fayette, to take into consideration the subject of a Rail Road fiom Hannibal to St. Joseph." 1 believe that such information would be elicited, in such a Convention, as to induce Eastern cap. italists to embai k in the undertaking. There is not a road in North America, save those between Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia nnd New V'oik, that will be moro profitable. A Conven tion, composed of men of practical good sense, will be able to set foilh the advantages of the en terprise in such a manner as absolutely to de nionsiruie its necessity over any other in the Western country. CLAY COUNTY. A Convention on this subject can cer tainly do no harm, and mavdo much good; tbi'iefoip, wc go in for it. The great dif ficulty which has attended the navigation of the Missouri river, for tho last two or three seasons, is a strong'argumetit in fa vor of the establishment of such a road. The merchants of this place, Glasgow, Rrunswick, Keytesville, and Hunlsville, for the last two years, have shipped most of their goods to Hannibal, and wagoned them from there home, because it was n cheaper and more certain mode of getting them in season, than by shipping them up the Missouri. The farmer, loo, is prevent ed from selling the products of his farm, because ho cannot get them to a market, and his Wheat, Hemp, Pork, &c, brings him scarcely enough to pay for raising, while those in other sections, who have the proper facilities for carrying their products to market, are getting good prices for them. These facts, which are plain which every one sees and feels', arc strong arguments in favor of the establishment of such a road, from such points on the rivers, as a full in vestigation of the subject shall show to be the proper ones. All classes are interested, inasmuch ns all would feel the benefits of such a road. The sooner and the more the subject is agitated, the better; a full inves ligation is all that is necessary to convince every one of tho utility and necessity of such a road. We commend it to the con sideration of our readers, and brethren cf the press. WAR MONEY SANTA ANNA'S PASS We invito the particular attention of the reader to the following letter from the Washington correspondent of the Palti moro Patriot. Mr. Polk, at the commence ment of the session of Congress, will find upon his shoulders a weight of rcsponsibil ity and guilt that would crush all the lo cofocos in Christendom: Washington, Oct. 23, 1816 Very soon after Congress assembles, pronosi ions, it is understood, will be made in that body lor the appointment ol select committees of in vesligation to enquiro into the causes, objects, and expenses ol the war with Mexico, and the real liuth of the case in regard to the alleged intrigue ol the Executive with feanta Anna. As the matter now stands in relation to the intrigue, a mountain ofcensure is piled up against Mr. 1'olK. it is time lor thesiiniect lo be explo red lo ihe bottom thnt the people may know why and for what object Capl. Slidell Mackenzie was sent lo Havana, wiiera lie had un interview with Santa Annu: why and for what object the Presi dent called upon Congress for two millions of dollars, to be used in Mexican mailers; whether any portion of the desired two millions has been drawn from (ho Treasury and paid away, and if so, how much and lo whom paid; how Santa Anna and Almonte, and the Mexican Generals accompanying lliem, came to obtuiu a free pass thiiiugh our tilockaoe into Vera Litaz: and who fiirn'slied the pa.-sporl, or gave the order for those hifh fiiiirtionH'-ies. who are now at the head of the Republic and the army of Mexico, to pass unino lested through our squadron! If Mr. Polk conies out of the investigation unscathed, let the censures that have been casit upon him in the matter be forthwith taken back and let the country do him justice. If, on the contrary, li.s conduct shows that the censures have been just, let the country fiown upon him with more indignation than ever! It is due to the country and due lo him that a full and search" ing investigation of the mailer should bo instilu ted by Congress, This can only be done by a committee of investigation, with power to send lor papers and persons, ihe passage of resolu tions, culling upon the President or the heads of departments for tho information, will avail noth ing. Replies will be delayed, or not rendered at all. It is time for the farmers and mechanics and all others to look at the cost of this war with Mexico; at its cost in hard cash, to say nothinr of the thousand lives lost by sickness, and the thousand lost in br.ttle, in consequence of it. Congress, at its late session, appropriated fifty ono millions op dollars. Thn money is ell expended, and the expenses of the war are not half paid. Clo the war now, and it looks as if it had only just begun, and the sum of one IJUNDItED AND riFTV MILLION'S OF DOLLARS WOllId not mors than cover all its expenses, according to thoso who are best in calculating these mat ters. Just think of it one hundred and fifty mil. lions of dollars, under Mr, Pulk's administra- uon, wnen, in on. or rnnila, peace and tialilornia might have been obtained, us all believe, for a h is sum limn ten miliums! One hundred and fifty miillions or silver dollaiis! Why Ihe sum uould loaione thousand and four hundred tlx hor;t wigm, end the tiainof teams drawing this ainojnt of csh, ez pended ly an "economical Democratic Adminis tration," In its war with Meiioo, woulJ b more than twenty one miles longl Here s a turn of money and an amount oi in. ver for the farmers, mechanics, and all others lo contemplate! Actually this vast sum is required of tho people, by this immaculate Administration, lo carry on a war wilh Mexico; a war that, on ac count of Ihe manner, in which it was begun, and the progress which has been made in it, must and ought to bo carried vigorously on to a triumphant and an honorable termination, let ' the cost be what it may! But it was commenced Improperly, and its whole conduct, so far as this verdant Administra. tion of ours is concerned, has been wrong. Tho army was started on the wrong roule to the inte rior of Mexico. Supplies and ponton trains were not speedily enough furnished. When the rivers had all been crossed, then the means of crossing them arrived! The orders sent to Gen. Taylor hud been too contradictory. The op pointment of generals for the volunteers was for the most part a very verdant selection of very green men. The uselessness of most or the generals left at Cainargo and Matamoras by Gen. Taylor, when he proceeded lo Monterey, ought to teach the American people the folly of confer ring tho power upon a President who it no sort of a military man, or a judge of military charac ter, lo appoint such a batch of generals as those alluded to. POTOMAC. From theN. O. Tropioof the 17lh. FROM THE ARMY ! TheU. S. Btcam-propeller Massachusetts, Copt. Wood, left Urnzos Santiago on Thursday afternoon, 12th instant, and reached the Balize Sunday evening. She ran aground in a fog about twelve miles below this city but will undoubtedly be up this morning. We learn from tt passenger that all was quiet at Monterey. iTencral lavlor was making preparations to advance. General Wool, finding tho roule to Chihuahua im practicable, had abandoned it, and he was on bis march to join Gen. Taylor. Santa Anna was at San Luis Potosi. Ampudia was also reported to be there. We have the following items respecting the troops at dillercnt points on the Kio U ran tie. Col. M'Kce's 2d regiment of Kentucky Infantry were under marching orders for Monterey, three Companies having already left Camargo. The Gesrgia regiment had probably reached Gem Taylor's camp. Gen. Marshall's regiment"1-of Kentucky mounted men were encamped four or five miles below Camargo. Some Companies of Colonel Orinby's regiment of Kentucky Infantry were at Camargo. The 1st regi ment of Ohio Volunteers were garrisoned at Matamoras. The Tennessee regiment of mounted men wero encamped a short distance below Matamoras. The 1st regi ment of Indiana Volunteers were encamped at the mouth of the river. The recruits for tho regular army are sent forward to Monterey as fast as they arrive. The troops on the river were in expecta tion of taking up their line of march for Tampico, but nothing had been received from General Taylor since ho obtained the dispatch from Government to break the armistice. Captain Ridgely lingerro for three days in a state of insensibility before he died. FROM MEXICO VIA HAVANA. The brig Hayne, Williams, arrived here yesteiday from Havana. By this arrival we have Havana papers to the 6th instant inclusive. The British mail steamer Tay had arrived, bringing news from Vera Cruz to the 1st instant, and from tho city of Mexico to the 27th. We give a few items gleanetl from our papers. The people of Vera Cruz were under the impression that our Gulf Squadron, off that port, were destitute of fuel and suffer ing greatly from scurvy, and that the war had already cost us 800,000,000. They, judging trom the lone ot their papers, think that, it hostilities are prolonged, their lie public must triumph, particularly if they can cut up our troops by skirmishe Pos itive orders, say private leitrs, have been given uy oanta Anna ior an me Troops at baltillo to tail back on ban Luis rotosi. aan Luis Potosi had declared ajjamst Gen.

Ampunia reoxsneM San Luis Potosi on the 21st ult. It was said that Santa Anna would soon have an army of 20,000 men. They were concen trating al San Luis. Rivera had left, it was surmised, to raise a loan of $20,000,000 abroad. Santa Anna would make no defence of Tampico, hoping to draw our army into the interior anu thus cut them up. Vera Cruz was being strongly fortified. nnd a ditch around tho city had been com menced. Ihe utmost enthusiasm seemed to pre vail among the citizens ot Mexico for a vigorous prosecution of the war. Congress is to meet on the 0th December. It wus stated in the papers, as news re ceived in the city of Mexico, that tho for ces ol Gen. Komcro, who bad not signed the capitulution of Montet y, had met with a party of Americans, and that 100 of the latter had been made prisoners, that four pieces of artillery were taken, and that 80 Americans were killed. This is certainly news tins way, and ot course not to be credited. Counterfeit American half dollars, made in a very superior manner, are in circula tion in New York. There are a great ma ny of them afloat, of lite beautiful Federal devices, ami lettered on the edge.

Since the last biennial ex amination made of the accounts of those officers, there have been two examination! made of the books in the Auditor's nlK. one by a committee appointed by the Gen eral Assembly, in the year 1844, to settle he accounts of Hirom H.

Your committee have not thought i: necessary or proper to exam ine into the correctness of those settle ments, but, in their examination, have ta ken it for granted, that the action of those committees was correct. It will be perceived that the committee have given the Treasury credit for the defi cit of A.
