Ljebt. WmrFW--JJie Capture and Supposed
Jllurdir Extract from a letter from one 01 our
cot respondents, doted " Vera Crua July 13ih,
I847!1 - . .
As to news, there are so many different ru
mors constnnly afloat here, that it is almost
mpossible to cat the riant end or any thing.
On our arrival on Sunday evening, 1 learned
from the Quartermaster, that on ths previous
evening on officer of the U. S. A. Lieut. Whip
ple, i who was also Adjutant,) of the iih Infan-
ry, had walked out in the evening towards the
Cemetery, a short distance from the walls ol
he town, accompanied by a servant, and in
presence of the attendant, he was lassoed by
one of the guerrilas, made prisoner, and carried
away, ths Lord knows where! A party, under
the command of Capt. Duperu, (who is yet in
camp,) were despatched on the following morn
ine: but they weie unable to discover any tra
ces of the guerrillas, or any thing whaiever
connected with the late or the unfortunate
Lieutenant. The general belief here is, thai
he has been murdered -and from what I hear
myself about, I have no doubt that he has.
In regard to Lieut. Whipple, an account of
whose capture will be found in the letter of our
Veto Cruz correspondent, the Sun of Anahuac
of the 13th inst. says: "It is rumored thai
Lieut. Whipple, Adjutant of the 9ih Infantry,
who was carried oil on Saturday evemog lost
by s guerrilla party, was met at a place nam
ed San Miguel de Medelin, and that he was
considered and treated as a prisoner of war.
This, however, does not appear to us very like
ly. When this was heard of, a detachment or
cavalry was immediately sent in that diiection,
but we Tear that, ne wilt not be lound. Much
excitement still prevails here on his account.
At every hour or the day rumors of dinerent
kinds are put in circulation in this city, and
we are sorry to see that too much Taith is put
in them- especially by the Mexicans, who are
always anxious to start and listen to any thing
that might be unpleasant to the Americans --
They boast too, of the boldness of the gnerril-
leres, and some ol them pretend that guerrilla
parties are every day seen within half a mile
of the city. And there is some truth in this
Lieut. Whipple's disappearance Is a prool ol it.
He has been carried off while he was within 3
or 400 yards of the walls of this city."
Sknor Atoch this illustrious diplomatist
has written a letter to El Republicano, in re
ply to the rather deprecatory remarks of that
journal. Senor concludes his epistle with the
following ominous, mysterious, and profoundly
interesting assurance, and flattering, encourag.
inc. and sustaining endorsement of the wisdom
and honor of Mr. Polk's cabinet:
I can not explain myself as it should be necs
sary, to illustrate an affair of so great impor
tance, which ought to have been examined with
the greotqst circumspection and sparing con
siderations, previously to having declaredd
themselves against it ia the high terms which
have been used.
My intentions have been always sound and
my wishes for peace the most sincere.
I he conduct of the government of the Uni
ted States through me is worthy of men of hon
or and highly illustrated. I hope that these
qualities may be appreciated in future times as
they deserve. I here is no meanness, nor
treachery, nor baseness, nor iniquity. There
is nothing in reserve that may be censured in
the least as a lack of honor in the men of both
countries, that ceuld have any intervention in
that question. When the moment will have
arrived, 1 hope to put tt in its true point of
view. I hose who may judge it with a prudent
sense, may give their opinion, and this 1 ex
pect with delight, will be lavorable to me.
Tha noursa of time and eventa will ha tha onlv
argument tdednvince ignorance.
Cotton Factories at the South. The 'Live
Oak of Pensacela gives some account of a cot.
ton factory at Arcadia, about seventeen miles
from Pensacola. It has about 1000 spindles,
and is worked entirely by negroes -mostly girls.
It his been in operation about a year, and as an
experiment it has more than answered the san
guine expectations of its projectors.

A Cure Secured for Forty Cents, with
DR. BRAGG'S SUGAR COATED PILLS.
Doct. Bragg'g
Indian Queen Vegetable Sugar Coated Pills
A RE the latest and most important discovery
x. of the age in the form of a popular FAMILY
1V1K1HUIIN&, lortney possess exwauruinory vir
tues hitherto unknown in the shape ot puis.
They are of two kinds first, the Anti-Bittous
second, tbe ionic rius.
THE ANTI-BILIOUS PILLS
Are the safest and most efficacious purgative ever
used in bilious fevers, ague and levers, dropsy,
dyspepsia, rheumatism, inflammatory fever, and
all diseases peculiar to the Western and Southern
States. They are
PURELY VEGETABLE,
And free from all the poisonous and corroding
effects of mineral medicines which are so indis
criminately used in chills and fever, and other dis
eases of the
SOUTH AND WEST.
Their virtues consist in their mild yet searching
effects upon the inner coat of the stomach and
bowels, and upon the secretions of the liver, skin
and kidneys, thereby cleaning
THE ALIMENTARY CANAL
Of all offending and viscid humors, exciting the
liver to prompt and healthtul action, carrying on
the bile and other
IMPURITIES OF THE BLOOD
and restoring the regular motion of the bowels,
overcoming
THE VILIUUIS UUJMJUlUiV
Of the system, producing moisture of the skin,
cleansing thn fur from the tongue, removing head
ache and paia of the back, and securing that free
dom troin tebnie commotions wnicn invites to
sleep and ends in a
RESTORATION TO HEALTH.
After the stomach and bowels have been cleanssd
of their
FOUL HUMORS,
Tbe liver drained of its STAGNANT BILE, and
tbe active force of the chill or fever subdued, then
THE TOMC PILLS
Require to be freely used. These pills act LIKE A
CHARM upon the chills or fever, &.c; all the
other disordered functions of the body, by their
soothing and strcngtlnng. action upon the
NERVOUS SYSTEM,
thus guarding it against tbe poisonous and para-
lying ettects ot that
MONSTER
Which lives in the atmosphere, carries death and
destruction to thousands and tens of thousands,
in new countries under the form of
MARSH MIASMATA,
Which is the first eause of chills and fever, and
all bilious diseases, and is the product of a
VEGETABLE FERrMENTA TION
Caused by the union of heat and moisture in all
low and marshy simationi during the summer
months, and which the close researches of the
MEDICAL FACULTY
Have heretofore been unable to unfold. It has
been our good fortune to discover a
VEGETABLE REMEDY
Against this prevalent and all-pervading poison
which we constantly inhale with the atmosphere
we breathe during the summer months.
m; u toxic PiLLs
Have been found to have complete and astonishing
power over this
MIASMATIC POISON,
And henco the great success and uncommon popu
larity which they have obtained in all the West
ern and Southern States.
