i/BTULS Of THE NEWS FROM MEXICO.
[From tbo Now Oris* 114 Picayuns. ion. U.J
There were several arrivals In the river from Torn
L'rui,yesterday. tbo latest bring tho steamship Virginia,
Capt. Tnoker, which loft on the 4th lust, and touohed,
at Tampiee.
Tbo moot important inteillgonao by this arrival ooneloto
of an indefinite but very current rumor, that sooret
negotiation! are on foot which promise peaos. It oomoo
to us from several eoureea, and ouch as era usually well
informed. W# have nothing very tangible to give color
to it, but note below oueh circumstances aa favor it For
ourselves, we can only vouch for the faot that such an
imnmaiilnn Tdrv utrnnir in I ifdntiml At TalUDioo
apt. Tucker report* th* t tal loi* of the brig Rupert,
on Tamplco bar, on the l*t lost. She waa bound from
Peusacda for Tamplco, with a cargo of lumber for the
government.
The a hip America left Vera Crua for thl* port on the
4th lnet. Capt. E. G Elliott, Aaalatant Quartermaster,
Capt. Croh.n Ear, 3d dragoon*. Capt.T. O. King, and
Llaul. Prluoe are pa*aaoger* on bar.
The propeller Washington, Capt. Pratt, which waa
among the arrival* yesterday, brought over Lieut. 8. G.
Hick*, of the 3d llllnoi* Volunteer*. We now prooeed to
details of the new*.
Jt appear* that deapatohea war* received at Vera Crua
the eight of the Slat ult, by a oourler from Mr. Doyle,
the Britleh Charge. They were at onoe despatched to
tbi* port by the brig of war Daring, which arrived her*
several day* eino*. Though nothing 1* known aa to
the** deapatohea, the opinion formed at Vera Crui, from
the fact that they were forwarded by a vessel of war, Instead
of awaiting a steamer, was that they were of great
consequenoe They even jumped to the conclusion that
secret negotiation* were going on between Mr. TrUt
und the Mexican commissioner*.under English auspice*.
Nay. one of our oorrespondenta 1* confidant that the Saratoga
brought ov*r despatches from Mr. Trist for the
government at Washington, asking to have bis power*
renewed.
The evening of the 3d lost, a detachment of about
twenty-fire dragoons, under Captain Croghan Ker, arrived
irom Mexico, having left there the 37th of December.
Mr. Triit did not accompany the tinln. Captain
Ker brought down deapatohea for Washington Lieut.
Waters, of the Louisiana Mounted Men, oame down
with Captain ker, from Puebla, and brought with him
package* whloh had been eant down es far as Puebla by
Captain Lawis, of the same corps, who left Mexico the
same day with Captain Ker Through this channel we
have received lull tile* of papers from the oity of Mexloo
to the 36th of iJeoember, but, unaccountably, our correspondence
did not reach Vera Crus. and is, we foar.
lost for ue Captain Clinoh. of the ISth Infantry, came
down with Captain Ker'* train.
Col Miles, with a force of from 1.000 to 1,600 troops,
left Vera Crux on th* 3d lust, for the olty of Mexioo.
Gen Scott was anxious for its arrival, which it waa supposed
would not be later tbau two weeks.
Aseoon as anotker column 1,600 strong oan ba collect
*d at Vera Cruz, it is expected to move thence for
Orisaba, under command of Col Uankhead. In Vera
Cruz thl* is expected to be a delightful excursion, from
the beauty of the country, and the fine roads and the
kindiiesi of tbe people, who have repeatedly solicited
that troops should be sent thither.
A small command had been deepatohed from the oity
of Mexico, composed principally of the 9th Infantry,
under Col Witners, for the mining diatriot of Real del
Monte, on the road towards Tampico, for the purpose
of colUctiug the revenues from the mining companies.
Another was expected to leave In a few days for Toluoa,
the capital of the State of Mexioo.
Go. Marshall was still at Jalapa on the 29th ult.,
awaiting the arrival of Col-Miles' train. Upcn its arrival,
his foroa would be 3400 men, according to the Free !
Anteit' an.
The President's message reached Mexico on the iftth
ult., having been despatched from Vera Crus to the
capital in seventy hours, for the American Star. It left
Washington on the 0th, and was consequently bnt seventeen
days in reaohlng Mexioo. It was immediately ;
published by the Star at length.
On the 20th ult. John Reynolds, of company D, 8th
infantry, was hung for murdering a Mexican woman.
Mr. Webster's Woroester speech is published in the
Amrritan Star, in order to counteract ihe perversions
made of certain passages in it, by the Mexican papers.
Gen. Smith, Govtrnor of the oity,has had a serious
misunderstanding with the ayuntomitnin. or munioipal
couneil, and consequently dissolved it. The documents
are published at leugth. but would hardly interest our
readers. A new oQnnoil was promptly Installed.
There is a story in the Mexican papers that Santa Anna
had embarked at Aoapulco for the port of San Bias.
Upon this El Monitor exclaims : ?" If this should be so, I
as we bore not, may God protect the peace of Jalisio." j
The Monitor's correspondent states, stys the American
Star of lbe23i December, that the government is much i
embarrassed lor want of resources. The state of Jalisco
had not paid the oontiDg-nt voied by tha recent council
ol Governors it had lost the tobacoo rent, also, in giving
unlimited fre dom in planting. Gen. Scott's order '
of the 16th had arrived, and a aeetiug of the Ministers I
was held in consequence There was considerable alarm
lest the Americans would go to QuereUro to occupy the
city, and families were beginning to move away. There
was mush talk ef a vronunciamiento, but none had ta
ken place. The Santa Annalsta and ruroi were iu full
union, and were doing all in their powar against the
government, and to bring about a revolution. Tlieir
utmoat efforts were directed towards destroying the
credit of the government.
Gen. rushing'* brigade, comprising the 1st and 3d
Pennsylvania Regiments, New York. South Carolina and
Massachusetts Volunteers; went to San Angel on Sunday
laat (Deo 19) We presume they will have another
piao < of destination shortly.
.MORE ARRIVALS.
[From the Amerimvn Star of December 31.]
Yesterday morniug Col Johnson arrived in the city in
command of the troope who went down with Col Harney
on the let ult. A very large number of recruits for
the diSrrent regiments came in also, under oomraand,
we believe, of Major Gray. The 9th and 13tb. and several
other regiments, receive large accession by this antra!
A large train of wagons accompanied the troops.
Brig. (Jen Lane, with his staff, reached the city on Saturday,
and we have heard that Queretaro is his destination.
In eonsequsnea of these arrivals for the last few days,
the oity presents quite an animated appearance Many
?<f the streets are blocked up with wagons and soldiers,
on their way to their quarters. In most casts entire
new barrack* have to be taken.
MEXICAN OPINIONS OP TKR AMERICANS.
The Star translates the following passage of a letter
w.itten m t - city of Mexico, and published in the Mon-1
at o ot lbe Idtn ul :
"lie \ in iic.iaa who have b.eu expeoted have arrived.
utter c 'rniiii tiug a thousand eXoreses lu every place
through vt.H-ii they hare parsed. In this city they
hare ,'c u t by force theConventde lae Vascainee, the
housi ot r. ttevtrria aud Teran, who. they say, are
ogenU of the government. A body of Texans has arrived.
wh?, flattered with the Idea of avenging their
brethren killed in 1838, are committing all kinds of evils
and exoesses This is no longsr to bs borne, and it
would be far better to have a legion of demons here than
these criminal, ferocious men. For myself, I intend to
leave immediately, with my family, to go and live in the
wcode. fjt tt is much preferable living among wild
beasts than with such fellows. Tbe tiger Scott oppressea
the proprietors because he supposes they will be
iniluential iu bringing about a pesoc 1 have neither
time nor temper to tsll you all that our Illustrious conquerors
are doing l.ere. Fray God this rabble may not
go to your plaoe If they do, don't waltfor them."'
The Slcr then comments with great severity upon the
letter, nnd upon the representations of Meziosns generally
iu regard to tbe deportment of our troops in
Mtxico.
THE MEXICAN PH180NER8.
[From tbe American Star, Deo 34 ]
We a'luund yesterday to the liberation, by order of the
American < oniiusnder-in-chtet, of the Mexican soldiers
who have been in confinement since they were taken
prisoners ol war In tbe battles before this oapital. The
number liberated, we are told, is not fa; from five hundred.
Th"y all bear with thsra a paper, signed by the
Arch bishop of Msxloo, and the rresldent of the Ayunliamento.
cert.lying that they have bound themselves
by an < aih not again to take up arms in the existing
war, un lit hey have been duly exchanged. It will be
pe? n, therefore, that the ehurch has lent its sanction to
this step, and that these soldiers go forth under Its protection
and authority. O! course no attempt will be
raado to impr*es them again into tbe Mexisan servioe.
They cannot themselves be too oareful that they do nothing
at variance with the obligations which they and
their spiritual father have contracted. We have noticed
munv of the liberated prisoners in the strests and
chops asking siuis. with their certificate* in thsirhand*.
Wbmher worthy otj -cts of charity or not, we are not
advised Bring able-bodied men, however, who have

QrtKItKTARO.
[From th* Affleilc.in S'ar. December 55 ]
The Monitor of yvstsrdsy, has a letter from Queretaro,
which states that the government is doing all in its
I power to get tlie new Corgress together. It (a believed

Tne writer appears to think, that however great
the diffliultles which beeet the republic, they are
nothing iu comparison with those which would follow a |
termination of tne war. Parties, then, he adds, will
have tin e to take breath before commencing with greater
violence that fratricidal dissension which has reduced
the country to tbe condition in which It li now

been exhibited, by the government to the anarohicel

of apprehending som t Mexican offlcon who ware raid

One half efthe command wae ordered to diamonnt and
take poaaaaaion of the houae; thla waa promptly done,
while the enemy kept up their lira. The honae waa
then thoroughly aaarch, but moat of the Mexloana had
I effected their escape; three, however, were killed, and
, three brought in aa prisoners, with a less on onr aide of
three horses and one man slightly wounded. The houae
in which tha officers were supposed to be was afterwards
, gone into, but they were not found aa was expeoted, after
all the noise occasioned by tha shooting and entering of
tha house first spoken of. The party remained in the
, town about three hours, when, not finding any thing
i further to do, they returned to tbla olty.
Lieut Waelder speaks In the blgheat terma of tha
OOndaflt ftf tha mutt linihr hU nomminil on thlfl no
i easion; they carried oat every order promptly and gallantly.
i Accompanying the abora party there were also Lieutenants
Pents. Moees and Morehead, and Sutler Mason,
i of the id Ohio ltegiment, quartered at San Jose, who
gallantly volunteered their services on the oooasion.
The American prisoners who have been taken by the
Mexicans at various times and places, were yesterday
cent here from Zaoatlan by Mr. Isunaa, the present
Mexican Governor of the State of Puebla ; they were
conducted by Col Noreja and formerly delivered to Col.
Childs. commanding this Department.
Mr. Isunaa asked, in exohange for theae prisoners.
Col Pavon; if this was not admissible, an equal number
cf Mexioan prisoners, or, if the latter could not be done,
to aooept them as voluntarily restored to the United
States.
This act of the Mexioan Governor Is oertainly a humane
and commendable one; in addition, the prisoners
state that they were kindly treated while oontlned.
The answer of Col. Child's, however, was in the proper
American spirit He wrote to Mr. Isuasa, as we understand
from good authority, that he could not aooede to
the first propostlioa, from the fact that the Kepubllo of
Mexioo is largely indebted to the United States for returned
and paroled prisoners and many set at liberty unconditionally,
of the same grade as those reoeived ; that
within the last two mouths, a much larger number of
prisoners of war than now received, had been liberated,
simply as an act of humanity, they being extremely
anxious to return to their families and friends ; that, in
faot, the extent to which Mexiean prisoners had been
restored to liberty, deprived him of the pleasure of complying
with the second part of the proposition. He further
thanked the Governor for kindness and attention
to the prisoners just voluntarily restored, and assures
that he will take pleasure in emulating Mr l.'s humanity
towards Mexicans that may tall into his hands as
prisoners of war.

It appears by tho returns for November 13th, that
within tho thirtoon day* previous, tho amount of apoolo
on hand had fallon off noarly two hundrad thouaand
dollar*, and tho deposit* hare decreased about tho same
amount. Tho lino of loans and oiroulatlon romalns
about the same. The object tho Comptroller probably ,
had In view In oalllug for roports so soon after the regular
quarterly returns for November had been made, was
to see If an Immediate expansion followed that period
Such appears not to have been the case. This is j
owing more to the condition of our financial affairs
than any thing else. The banks hare for
some time past been steadily oontraeting, in anticipation ;
of stringent times In tha money market, more than from
any danger of a oall from the Comptroller for reports.
There li no foundation for the report that the Ithaoa
Bank had euspended. 11* bill* are promptly redeemed
by the Amerioan Exchange Bank.
The State Bank of Durham, Ureene oounty, hae
transferred Iteoffloe for the redemption of Its issue from
Wall street to Albany. This looks ominous.

Chemung Canal Bank, are In olroulatlon.

sident is tolerably wall done. A very little observation j
will dis jover the fraud The vignette in the oentre is an
Indian, with hand upraised in wonder at the approach
of a trsin of cars, a ship on the right margin, and an
Indian with a bow on the left. It is letter A, No. 1386,
and purports to have been engraved by Rawdon, Wright
& Hatch. The bill appears to be from the same plate as
the lately notioed counterfeits on the Burlington County
Bank, at Medford, names and dates only being altered.
The annexed statement exhibits the number of acres
sold, and the amount of money received, at the Chilliootbe,
Ohio, land office, during the year ending the Slst
of Deoember last. The sales of the past year largely exoeed
those of any previous year since the consolidation
ofthe Steubenvllle, Marietta, ZanesvlUe, Cincinnati and
Chillioothe office', In 1840. These lands have all been in
the market over 40 years. They are all sold at ft 'Jo per
acre, with the exoeption of a small quantity of Miami
Extension Canal lands, which are valued at $3 30 pernors.

The publio landa In Ohio arc rapidly coming under cultivation,
which adda to the revenue of the State, from
taxation, and lnoreaaea the wealth and proaperty of the
State. Ohio ia deatined to be the aeoond State in
tfala Union.
The anthraolte coal trade of the United Statea, for the
year 1847, exhibits a greater lncreaae, oompared with
previous years, than any other within the hlatory of the
trade. The prinoipal lncreaae haa been from the Sohuylklll
regiona, a large per oent of which waa the reeult of
the opening, or the_ reaumption of buainesa, on the
8ohuylklll Canal. The annexed table exhibtta the
quantity of anthracite ooal aent to market from the
different mining regiona of Pennsylvania, in each year
from 1810 to 1847, eaeh inoluaive, ahowing alao the inorea?e

It will be observed that Sohuylkill county furnishes
more than ono-half of tbo aggregate quantity of anthra- !
cita ooal lent to markot in 1847; and more tban one-half ,
of the inerease. compared with 1848, waa from that coun- <
ty. Of tbo whole quantity of ooal aent to market in the j
past twenty-eight yeari, 10,318,130 were furnished from j
Schuylkill county, and the balance by all other regions c
Notwithstanding the rapid Increase In the supply of this e
artlole, the consumption keeps pace with It, and the price j
s sustained at high points. The inorease In the aupply j
last year, compared with the year previous, was equal to *
more than 36 per cent, being nearly double thet of any j
previous one, in the faoe of whlob prices rule as high as *
they were this time last year. The supply of foraign ooal "
n 1847, compared with the previous year, bae fallen off 0
under the new tariff; but compared with 183 5, there bae l<
been an increase of nearly one hundred pot oant We ?
have no doubt but that the present year?1848?the sup. ?
ply of both foreign and domestic ooal will be exceedingly
large, and the inorease, compared with 1847, larger Z
than in 1847 compared with 1848. The great anthra- '
cite coal region in the United States, is Sohuylkill soun- ,,
ty, and the increase in the collieries of that sec- a
tTon, In connection with the additional facilities which f,
the Reading Railroad and the Sohuylkill Canal will fur- f
nish this year, must give;a great increase in the reoeipts
for the year 184S. As extensive as the supply may be, v
we have no doubt the consumption will be equal to it.
The annexed statement eihthits the quantity of coal j,
imported into the United States in each year, from 1821 \
to 1847, both inclusive, in tons of twenty-eigbt bushels 0
each ?

'/'/if Error hi the Tahiti of Rectipt* a nil Erpendi- H
turti?Uentml Scott'* Recall?Political Anta H
/fonum in me nenaie.
Tlie WW in the tnbl? of INliflland extenditurpi,
of which I notified you in * telegraphic
despatch yeaterduy morning, has caused, as
might he expected, an extraordinary commotion. H
The government wakes up and fiuds itself richer
than it had supposed, by 7 million! of dollars, a
I m by no meana iMMMmbb m ibw .'a> < H
i of whig committees, and a grumbling Houae oi
Representative*. The opposition will ba in ao
I good humor ut thua being cheated nut of caus?
tor growling, und at having their calculations of
ruin and diaerodit overturned by (he timely dc
tection of this error. It was a mistake that
might have occurred at any tune to the moat
vigilant and accurate of men ; und which, taking
into consideration die circumstances of its
committal, will excite 110 surprise. The imI
men.se toil which wus ground down into the roj
port of the Secretary of the Treasury?a paper
I unexampled in (he history of the goverumeut,
; as well lor its Wouderiul condensation ot facts
! as fur its vast research, comprehensiveness, und
logical arrangement,?die immense labor of
delving lor those tacts among die mouldy records
of the department, by those engaged in assisting
die Secretary, was not performed without such n
prostration of faculties hs would naturally have
led to the error that has been discovered, even if
it had not been, from its nature, so easy of committal.
Mr. Walker himself, would, doubtless,
have discovered it, (although it is not within
die province of die Secretary of the Treasury to
supervise tliose tallies,) but his health, trom the
terrible labor to which he hud subjected himself,
was, for a week before the report was signed, in
such a condition as to inspire the physicians
who attended him every day in the department,
(which he did not leave tor days before thereI
ori witst timwhed,) with great apprehension that
hid constitution would uuceuinb.
The contradictory statements made in other
papers about General Scott's recall, are, 1 need
scarcely nay, entirely unfounded. Grsve
charges agjinst Geueral Scott are now on file at
the War Department, and to investigate these
charges a court of inquiry, with Gen. Towaou
as its President, will Maembl* at P?r*te. Gen.
Butler will, iu the meantime, take command of
the forces. The statement contained in the
telegraphic correspondence of a Baltimore paper,
that Gen. Worth would be released lr?m arrest,
and assume the ebnunand of the army, is absurd.
There uro three generals now in Mexico, besides
lien. Scott, who rank Gen. Worth?Butler, Pal- H
terson and f'lllow.
A very animated extemporaneous debate arose
in the Senate to-day, on the rcsoltttien oflered
by Mr. Mauguin, calling on th*s President for H
copies ot the instructions under which Gen.
Scott acted in issuing the general order No. 970,
and the opinions of General Scott in regard to H
the necessary military means for carrying such H
instructions into effect. Mr. Cass resisted the H
passage of the resolution, unless it should em- H
body the usual reservation, leaving the President H
discretion to withhold the information, if its H
communication should happen to be prejudicial H
to the public interests. H
Mr. Crittenden and Mr. M&ngum sustained H
the call, and Mr. Cass and Mr. Allen opposed it. H
It is needless to say that (he whig side had the H
best of the argument, if not ot the merits of the H
question. The tact is, Mr. Cass is not suited H
lor ttie position lie occupies on the floor ot the
Senate, as lender of the democratic party. Op- _ I
rl t.. u.w.ll .,.u Mr I'r I... 11- VU..I.
titer, Air. Calhoun, Mr. Clayton, and other keen
debaters and experienced parliamentarians, he
appears to great disadvantage, la un encounter
with Mr. Crittenden, lie must always expect defeat.
Even in a trial of strength with Mr. Clayton,
whose powers are not, by any means, all
great as they have been, lie cannot hope to be
victorious, lie should give up the leadership to
soine younger and more active man?Mr. Dtx
tor instance, or .Mr. Davis, of Mississippi, both
of whom always command the grave and respectful
attention ot the Senate. Mr. Cass could
much better defend a position in the held than
in the Senate. The wings play with him, and
Catechise him, and torment lnin ; but he has one
udvuniage?they can never drive him from his
imperturbable good humor. Unwieldiuess iu
debate, is tns great failing. Wnile the enemy's
centre is the point ol uttack, he goes on admirably
; bu*. he never guards his Hanks, and when he
entrenches himselt behind a position, he does
not know how to defend it. He cunnot withstand
the sharp attacks of the enemy, now on
Ilia rear, now oil his Hanks, lie tries to make a
suttie, and gets mauled terribly in the attempt;
and belore be can recover himselt, the enemy
presses upon him, until at length he becomes
completely worn out and is captured. Thus it
is with Mr. Cass and his opponents in the Senate.

The Death of Mr. Hornbeck?A Succrtior?Calculation?
The If/tig Majority in Danger.
It is customary, when a member of Congress
dies, lor a member of the same party to whicu
the deceased was attached, to make tlio announcement.
Mr. Brodhead, however, (a democrat,)
to-day, acquainted the House that inteli.~.

Hornbeck, (whig,) at his residence in Allentown.
And he spoke of him in terms of exalUtion,
huving been occasionally connected with
liini in law and in social intercourse. We hope
the time is rapidly passing away when individuals
can see no personal merit in others who
politically differ from themselv-s, and that the
narrow mindedness of demagogues may soon bo
recorded as a thing that was, and demagogues
theorist Ives cense to exist. Atneu !
A democratic successor to Mr. Horubeck is
already spoken of. The district waa not so
much against the democracy but that it can be
turned the other way.
Mr. lirown, of Mississippi, (democrat,) is expected
to arrive very shortly?he may now bo
on his way. So, if a democrat be elected front
Mr. Hornoeck's district, and Mr. Holly, (wing.)
docs not come back from the South, the democrats
will rub the whigs in the House a little
closer, and with a trio, even, of war whigs, will
be enabled to vote lurtlier supplies tor the proseution
ol the war. The democrats, last Congress,
with a majority,of between sixty and
seventy, sometimes found themselves in a minority
on administration measures (as an m tatice,
the tea and coffee tax;) and with u maority
so small that ilie wing Speaker was elected
iy the retusal of a democrat, (Mr. Holmes, of
South ( arnltna,) to vote, the wings may find
themselves in a minority bclore the close of the
session. Stranger things than this have come
to pass. Faux.
