What a Herald Commissioner Saw at the Revolutionary Camp. A TALK WITH TREVTNO. How Trevino Expected to Capture Matamoros and How He Abandoned the Attempt. His Army Threatened with Annihilation. THE ROBBER CORTINA REMOVED. TELEGRAMS TO TH? NEW YORK HERALD. The Herald correspondent at the head quarters ot' the revolutionists in Northern Mexico has forwarded ns the following special despatch: ? Headquarters Trevino's Army, j Rkynosa, Mexico, May 6, Via Brownsville, Texas, May 7, 187*2. ) A visit by your correspondent to this (revo lutionary) cainp plainly reveals to him the shite of Trevifio" s forces, and the reason why their attack on Matamoros has so iguomini ously failed. The number of the revolutionists at the out Bet of the attack has been variously reported, but, whatever may have lieen their original strength, I have by personal observation gained the information that their present num ber is far inferior to what it was stated to be at first. I counted the troops of Trevifio as they were moving out this morning, and find that he has now only eleven cannon, 700 infantry and 400 cavalry at his disposal. The balance have deserted, singly or in small bauds, and are carrying ou depredations on the peaceable inhabitants. TREVINO'8 ARMY IN A TERRIBLE STATE. The scattered army is completely demoral ized and destitute of the most immediate necessaries of life, such as food and clothing, ic. The officers are dismounted and shoeless, and the few animals left can hardly wulk. The men, being without pay and food, are stealing or begging. All the horses and cattle of this part of the country have been swept away, and the revolutionists are now without the means of swift escape and in great fear of pursuit by the forces of General Cevallos. Should the government troops at this moment, appear this force would dissolve and abandon Wagons, artillery and all the war material. TREVINO DISAPPOINTED. It is evident that General Trevino never intended to make an attack on Matamoros. His force was at the best not large enough to invest the city or even oppose in open field the reinforced garrison of Cevallos. He was deceived by the report that the National Guard would prove false to the gov ernment and open the gates of the city to him. But, instead of this expected aid, the National Guard of Matamoros vied with the regular troops in their determination to defend the fortifications. When thus undeceived General Trevifio retired and gave up the attempt of capturing the city. TREVINO TO THE HERALD CORRESPONDENT. In conversation with your correspondent. General Trevifio said that President Juarez is certain to be overthrown by this or another revolution. He predicts that, in case of the failure of the present rising, a more formida ble one would break out soon afterwards. But your correspondent has Ascertained by mingling with his officers and men that they have no confidence in their commander or the success of the revolution. Nor is there any ground for the exaggerated reports of the strength of the revolutionists in the in terior of the country. The truth is that there is no revolutionary force of any magnitude. There are only small bands existing in the various States. Their avowed object is war against the Juarez gov ernment; but their principal occupation con sists in preying on the people. DIAZ BELIEVED DEAD. It is the general opinion among the revolu tionary loaders here that General Porfirio Diaz is dead, and that the report of his being in Jalisco is untrue. There is nothing known of the government operations in the interior, nor are there any signs of any Juarist force coming hither. By present appearances the government with 2,000 troops could pacify the whole northern frontier of the republic. THE DEATH BLOW TO THE REVOLUTION. Many commissioners from the interior have arrived at Trevifio's headquarters. They ex pected to buy arms after Matamoros was taken bj the revolutionists. They now regard the failure to capture the city as the death blow to the revolution. Part of Trevifio's iroops have just started for Camargo. Trevifio says that they will re jnain there to await the attack of General TELEGRAM TO THE NEW YORK HERALO. Edinburg, Mny 7, 1872.

The Minister of War to-day laid before the As sembly a bill constituting a court martial for the trial of officers censured by the report of the Com mission on Capitulations.

General Cortina, so long in command on this lino, who has been the patron and sup porter of the Mexican cuttle Ihioves in their raids on the Texan border, has been relieved and ordered to proceed to the City of Mexico. This action of the government will do much towards stopping the depredations in Texas. General Govallos will move out soon in pur suit of the revolutionists. The telegraph constructors will commence repairing the lino to Reynofw to-morrow. The Revolutionists Marching on Ca margo?Juarez Recovering the Wlitlc Country. Matamouos, May 7, 1872.

A resolution Introduced by Mr. Gordon, member for Glasgow and Aberdeen Universities, providing that the Scriptures shall form part of the instruc tion in the schools, was carried against the govern ment by a vote of 216 to 209. A GRAND DIFFICULTY FOR TDK CABINET. The question of public education iu Scotland promises to present a Parliamentary difficulty for the Gladstone government just as prominent as does the same subject in Ireland. Ministerial efforts to temporize with secularists will be resisted to the last, and on this, at all events, the Scotch are ardent "home rulers.'' A large meeting has been held in Kdinburg respecting the Scotch Education bill, and, after a long discussion, the government measure wasa on demned as "withdrawing all securities for religious Instruction and placing Scotch education uudcr a Loudon department."

THE SEABOH FOE DB. LIVINGSTONE. [Prom the Toronto (!lol?e, Mav a.] It would ae?m there la good ground tor believing that Dr Livingstone la atife, anil likely soon to lie in Kngland. The telegraph from Bombay oonveys the intelligence that the veaBd Abytloo, that took the Livingstone search expedition to Zanzibar, has brought, news that the Doctor had met with Mr. Stanley, the correspondent of the New Youk Ukkai.p, and that both were safe In the Interior. We have been so often deceived, however, by ru mors of one kind and another that it will tie aft well not to be too excited and enthusiastic over the in telligence till something more definite and reliable comes to hand. It is very evident tJiut no letter must as yet have come front the Doctor himself, for Dr. Kirk would never have allowed the opportunity of the Aliydos going lo Bombay without forwarding such a pre cious and assuring document, along with some com munication from himself detailing the circumstances so far as known. There Is not a bint of anything like this having been done, or any message from Dr. Kirk at all. Humor may have been busy, but ru mor Is proverbially unreliable; and while, there | fore, we would i>e most anxious to persuade our | selves that the story Is perfectly authentic, we wait j further confirmation before being persuaded that there is not the slightest mistake this time, Should It turn out to be the fact, as wo unfeignedly trust it will, that Livingstone comes among us again as alive from the dead, what an amount of In formation he wtll have to give and what a lion he will be I And In that case ulso the New Youk Herald will richly merit the upplausc and grati tude of the world In having so energetically and successfully come to the rescue of one who had been given up as lost. Not a few ridicule the story of the Herald's having a commissioner in Africa at all, and affirm that all its narratives of advOuturo by Stanley have been concocted In New York. This is far from the fact. There can bo 110 question that there is such a man as Mr. Stanley, and that he has lieen on the track of Dr. Livingstone for some time. Whether ull Ills representations and narratives are genuine Is quite another question. Time will speed ily try: and if the world has beon too sceptical of the Hkuald and Its doings, no doubt It. will be ready to make the tinwiuie hmmrahi# in due time. [From the TltusvlUe (Pa.) Herald, May ft.] Dr. Livingstone, the great explorer of Africa, long ago missing ami supposed to be dead, has al last turned up again. The discovery of his whereabouts ought to have beeu the work of the learned sclen title societies of Europe or of the English govern ment. But it was left to American enterprise to perform this rare work of courage and humanity. 1 Or, rather, the credit is solely due to the New j York Herald, which, by this grand achievement, j has added the last crowning proof of its pre-emi nence us a cosmopolitan journal with the whole earth for its province. Taking into account all the circumstances of the ease, the expense, the diffi culties, the peril, tins service which the New York Herald has performed is must extraordinary In all its aspects, and no American can fail to feel a glow of pride and admiration for Its unparalleled enter-, prise. The Her alp, in this remote and costly pro ceeding has only acted 011 the well-known prlml ple which it litis for years laid down for llHelf, to give the earliest and most, reliable Intelligence on ull subjects of interest to the world, at whatever cost and hazard.

Pullman and the Executive Committee, were in consultation here yesterday with Superintendent Sickles, of that road, aud General Ticket Agent Kim ball, In reference to the present transfer arrange ments at Omaha. After a full discussion of all he 1 facts in the ease the conclusion arrived at is that , the transfer business as now transacted is work- j ing very satisfactorily to the parties most directly interested, and that it is not advisable to make uny ; change, at least at present. , , The Tribune publishes an interview of Its reporter with President Horace F. Clark, of the I nlon Pa- , ; cine Railroad Company, in rcfercn^'toh'-trjinsmr controversy between Omaha and CouncilI Bluffs, j President Clark says the Union Pacific road had its j <*AHtf?rn terminus on the went hunk of the Missouri ( River in order to facilitate the transfer of passen irers 'ami freight. Upon the completion of the I bridge the Iowa roads, whose termini were upon the east side of the river, sought to compel the de livery of all freight and passengers upon their ter ritory ? they refused to run their trains through to 1 Omaha, or permit them to be run by any transfer 1 company. The Union Pacific Company had no legal authority, and was prohibited by its contracts with Omaha and Douglas county from making transfers on the Iowa side. They therefore contracted tem porarily with a third party to transfer over the bridge. : president Clark says it Is really a tight, between 1 St. Louts and Chicago, and If the Iowa roads see proper to force the traffic from Omaha down the i west side of the river to St. Louis, the Union Pacific Company Is not responsible ror the damage which ! may ensue to Chic ago Interests.
