There la too much reaeon to apprehend that ia thr
present poeture of affair, in Mexico, the war 1< about to
: aaeume a mo?t aanjuiuary and vindictive eharaeter am

Its present tendency Uhould bootllitloo continue, tboy
will consist ou the ono eidc at least of a oarioo of ttarba*
rouo and revolting murders In the highways and byeways,
our men will bo cut off by tha ranebero's ??? and
tbs assassin's knlfa.
It Is ossential to tbo bonor of o<y country. this
barbarous example bo not imitated by us We owe It to
our own cbaraeter and to tbo position we bold In the
rank of Christian nations, to witness our abherrenco for
this murderous system, by abstaining from its practise.
It Is difficult to restrain our Impetuous soldiery from
avenging the blood of their oomra doMPlHod treacherously
and foully, but that restraint must be exeroUed In
such a large army as we have now In Mexico, there must
neeesssuily be a great number of men regardless of aH
restraint, save that exercised over them by the discipline
of the serviee. It is vain to attempt to disguise that
many atrocities have already been oommitted by rush
men attached to the army in Mexioo, and that, notwithstanding
the measures taken by the two commanding
Generals to control them. It is hard that the glory of
our arms should be tarnished by such barbskrities, which,
however, it is but just to add, are fewer than in any
army equal in number, ever engaged by any other nation
in foreign service.
but while the murderous system now pursued by the
Mexicans, 1* to be avoided on our pert. It U nevortheleee
indispensable that a itop ahould bo put to the butobery
of our troopa. For this purpose order* are about to be
issued to our generals, to giro notice to the Mextaaas,
that for every soldier assassinated, a number of Mexican
prisoners of war, say two or three, will be put to death
by the sentence of a court-martial. This system of retaliation
cannot be deemed unreasonable, and the mod*
of carrying it Into execution will divest it of all appearance
of haste or passion, and give it the character of
dignified retribution. It is a most melancholy alternative,
but it is unavoidable.
^The letters from the captured cities in Mexico, represent
the soldiers as practising many acts of gross licentiousness
on tbe persons of unoffending Mexleaa citlxens.
I understand that it is Intended to curb effectually this
lioentiousneas, as far as there is a possibility of doing so
by the maintenance of strict discipline Wo do not war
with the unarmed population of Mexico; and as far aa
the discipline of tbe servicegoes.it is intended to streteh
it for tbe purpose of enforcing the observance of a proper
respect for the rights of nou-combatants and females, in
all the cities coining under our rule. Complaints have
already been made of souiu officers of inferior grade, not
only countenancing in others, but b?lng themselves
guilty of offering indignities to Mexican cltixens. It is
determined to degrade such officers from their rank, if
convicted of the alienee with which they stand charged
