Letters had been received in the capital from San Luis
Poloai, announcing that (be Governor of the State bad pro
mulgaled a decree that every citizen should take up aims,

Letters have been received in the city of Mexico an
nouncing that on the 5th of April live hundred American
troops left Chihuahua with fourteen pieces of artillery and
thirty wagons for Parral, a town about fifty league* south,
on the road both to Durango or to Patras. The Mexicans
say the object of the expedition waa to break up the Slate
Government eslablished at Parral since the fall of Chihua
hua. The moment their advance was heard the seat ot
G ivemmenl was again removed to a place called Guada
lupe y Calvo. Gen. Heredia, with the remains of his lorcrs,
also commenced a retreat lurthcr south, but had only com
menced it when he learned that the Americana had again
returned to Chihuahua after having march south twenty odd
leagues. This retrograde movement is said to have been
occasioned by news received Irom Mexico unpropinous to
American arm*, and also to news that Gen. Taylor hud
withdrawn from Saltillo. We see no reason to doubt the
tact that our troop* had marched and countermarched
as is alleged—the flight of the Mexico shows the
advance, and Ibctr hailing indicate* that Col Doniphan had
changed hia plans, from motives unknown to us. In the
city ol Mexico they arc expecting our tr. opi to invade Du

The latest advices from the city ot Mexico, received
throdgU the New Orleans Picayune, and inserted at length
this rfiornmg, are not calculated to couCum the impression
produced by the contents ot the letter from that city to (he
New York Courrier dcs Flats I'uis published yesterday,
that a speedy restoration of peace was at least among the
probabilities of the future. It appears that Santa Anna,
who serins to bo (he life end soul of the war party in Mrxi.
co, rallying from his reeont overthrow at Cerro liordo, has
been exerting hunself wi’h unwonted energy, and not with
out success, hi organising another Anuy, with the avowed
purpose of defending the approaches to the city of Mexi
co—while, on the other hand, we have nothing confirmatory
ot the rumar that a deputation from Uie aniens of that
place had luvited Urn. Scott to take possession of it, as a
means of “protection" against their owu countrymen.
The New Orleans Bulletin of the Ittih insl. says, tellers
were tho day before received in that city from Tampico,
staling that rrceut advices If so the capital mentioned that
Mr. Bankhead, the British Minister, had been requested bv
the Mexican authorities to use hislrieudly oflices, in order to
bring about au arrangement with the Fluted States. But
the Bulletin does not place much reliance on the rumor, us
it has knowledge of bitters from high sources in Mexico,
w hich slate, that, though many are in (avorof peace, no one
dare avow such a sentiment, so Mrong is the popular feeling
against any accommodation with this country, even though
the capture of the capital is looked upon as a probable
event. From one of these letters die Bulletin quotes this
remark: “Though we have no intention of following the
“ example of the Russians, by burning our city, neverthe
“ lesa the entrance ol tho Americans into the capi'al will be
** as fatal to their anny a« Moscow was to the French."—
There is, of course, (remarks the Bulletin,) a good deal of
braggadocia in all thia ; but wo think it will be a very dan
gerous move, for Ucn. Scott to cut himself loose from all
Ins communications with Vera Crux, and aJvauce ou (he
city ot Mexico, until he has s much larger force than is at
present under his command, particularly since he lias de
termined to discharge and send home, from Jalaps, at leart
four of ihe volunteer regiments, wiiose period ot service
was about to expire.
Ii will be seen, by tlio extracts from the Picayune, in
another column, that a very large number of the volunteers,
wlnwc term ot vert ice had expired, had already embarked
at Vera Crn7, on their return to their homes ; ami tt is esu
mated that Gen. Seotl, supposing that he has reached Pue
bla, 170 miles from (be sea coast, w ould be left at that point
with an effective force of not more than six thousand men.
Detachments of the newly raised troops, we are aware, are
pushing forward, to supply the place of the discharged vo
lunteers ; bill there is no reason to suppose that, before the
1st of July, his army will exceed 12 or 15.000 in number.
Making all proper allowance, therefore, for the disorganiz
ed and dispirited condition of the Mexican army, conse
quent upon :la recent delcats, and for the mragrencss of its
means of de:< nee, so Urge a portion of which has fallen
into the possession of our nrmy, and reposing all reason
able confidence in the unsurpassed valor of our soldiers, as
well ss in the skill and prudence of the commaiidcr-m-clnel
and of the brilliant band of officers by whom he is sur
rounded, we cannot entirely divest ourselves, nevertheless,
of the apprehension that they may meet wiili some disas
ter—a result which, should it happen, would be the more
deplorable, because it would be, for the moment, irrepara
ble, in consequence of Gen. Scott's remoteness from the
coast, and of the length of t ine which must consequently
elapse before be could be reinforced from home. This ap
prehersion, we most devoutly hope, may not be realized.
But certainly, if any other people than Mexicans were our
foes, although it might be possible for an army of 10 or
20,000 men to penetrate 210 miles ipio the interior of the
most mteli gent and densely populated portion of their coun
try, ard to occupy their principal cities, including the capi
tal, the population of which alone amounts to eight or ten
times the number of the invading force, it would be a mi
racle shoulJ they ever be able to cut their way back to their
shipping. With such an enemy, however, as the Mexi
cans, who, although they seem to fight intrepidly at times,
are nevertheless deficient in obstinacy of purpose and the
power of endurance, without which mere courage is un
availing against American soldiers, it is not only possible,
but probable, that even such n miracle will be witnessed_
and that Gen. Scott wi I not wily make his triumphal entry
inlo the magnificent metropolis of Mexico, but be able
from ns imperial palaces, to dictate terms cf peace to the
miserable race, who, with vastly supc’tor numbers, lack the
nerve or tha physical ability to defend them.
Most heartily shill we rejoice if the march to the city of
Mexico shall be unimpeded, and if its capture shall con
duce to the speed) restoration of pence between the two
Republics—a peace made on such terms as shall leave be
hind nothotu to rankle and fester in the bosom of the van
quished party, ensuring the violation of the treaty as soon
as the military force by which it is exacted snail be with
drawn frvmt their territory, or to furnish a pretext for future
wars, whenever Mexico may find herself ahlo to avenge
her real or imaginary wrongs, at the ally of some F.utojiran
Fuvrr, with which, in the course of human events, the
I'nited States may become embroiled. For we confess
that, while we do not very clearly comprehend the meaning
of Mr. Calhoun's remark, touching the "mysterious con
nection” which, he says, exists between the destiny of the
United States and that of Mexico, it cannot but be appa
rent to every mmd, that, although, standing alone, Mexico
must alway s he a contemptible antagonist, she may become
a t. ruujalilo and dangerous enemy, as tire ally of a power,
fill Kumpean Kingdom. Oar true policy, therefore, ia to
conciliate rather than to inapt rate her—to secure her
friendship as a nirmocr of the great family of American
Republics, who have a common interest In repelling Knro
ropean "colonization" on this Continent, as well as inter
lerence, to any extent, with our pol.ticalaystems, instead of
forcing her, by a harsh and repulsive policy, lo seek the
friendship and to become virtually the province of some one
of them, who have the power, whenever Circumstances may
arise to induce it* exertion, to f.ioleel her, as she cannot
protect herself, from the aggressive spirit of their Northern
neighbor. f*e| us tcarh the Mexicans to res^iect and to
confide in us by our moderation in the hour of victory_
not to hate ami fear us by the stern rigor of our exactions.
The policy which we recommend, may not chime in with
the views of those, who, looking only at the present, think
only of what thru call "indemnity.” Rut ihe friendship of
our Southern neighbor—who, a« Mr. Rentori says, baa
"Jone us the honor,” after throwing off the yoke of Spam,
t > make out institutions her model, though uufortiinntely,
and for very obvious reasons, the great experiment has
worked less successfully them than here—may be Worth mis.
nnely more to ns hereafter, than two-tlurda of her territory,
regarded only in a pecuniary point nl view, nnd leaving
all other and far more imp irlant consideration* nut of the
estimate,even it tier consent to its relirupindiuirnl can ever
be obtained.

The New Tariff for Heileo.
We have bwn looking, for some waaka past, for a vindi
catiou of the wisdom of this splendid ftaanc *1 system, from
aotnc oita ol tha Poet Laureate* of tha Administration, who
periodically deacaut upon tha wisdom and industry ol its
severs! members, ia the editorial columns of the Washing
ton Union. No member ol tha Cabinet ia more frequent
ly or more elaborately jafeJ than the Secretary of tha
Treasury ; and, with the exception perhaps of the free trade
Tariff of 1846,—of w hich it ia difficult to say whether it
was more warmly applauded in the British Parliament or
by the Washington Union—not him of tu measure* has
been more rxtravagtndy eulogised tlun the Tariff fnte,
which, by a flagrant assumption of Legislative power, be
and the President enacted for the regulation of commerce
in such Mexican port* aa might fall into our possession du
ring the prugressof the wsr. Yet, although numerous let.
trra from American merchants in those porta denounce ihw
£irr*h*r Late in tha most unqualified terms, as an em
bodiment of tolly and injustice—and although it has been,
in a public meeting of Americans at Tampico, declared to
be ’‘unjust and illiberal, and unbecoming any American In
heart or in principle,” and especially injurious to American
node, discriminating (as our own Tariff does) in lavor of
British maiiulacturers and factoia, and against our own—
not sure, word of explanation or defence of the measure or
ol its authors has it elicited from the Kxtcuiive Organ, or,
so tar as we have seen, from any other quarter. Neverthe
less, we have seen no indication of a purpose to niodity its
obnoxious provisions, which continue to be the subject of
earnest protest and harah comment by Amenran citizens
interested in the tiaJe of Mexico. One of these |iereonv,
proleasing to be a triend of the Administration, writing in
the iaal New Orleans Bulletin, for example, sare : ” 1 hsve
just returned trom Vera Crux and Tampico, and have seen
tlie results and tlLxisof this Tariff; and, as an American
citizen, must pronounce it one of the greatest blunders ever
attempted to be palmed off upon the good sense and the jast
rights of American citizens. The foreigners arc rejoicing in
the triumph they have gamed over the commerce of the
U. States. You can see by their action*, and know by their
language, that they rejoice over the victory gained by tlua
new law, tf law it is."
It is surely had enough tint the Kxrrutive should usurp
the function* of the law-making power—especially as the
members ol ihat Kxccutite plunte iliriuscivca upon being
Strict Constructionists, and each and all swear by the Reso
lutions of *iW-,99—But it is infinitely worse when they so
exercise the powers they usurp as to prostrate American
inlcxcsts for the benefit of foreign riva1* !

IT The following paragraph from the Alexandria

" I« continues to be believed hy nianr, that there was
an understanding of some sort or other between Mr. Polk
and his friend Santa Anna, that the latter was to grant
us a peace, at some time rtr on sonic contingency, not
understood, or explained. The series of defeats he has
met with, and Ins consequent lots of power and influ
ence, hava deprived him of the menns ot fulfilling bt>
agreement. Where Mr. Polk is to find another fruiter,
with whom to make a like bargain, is a puzzling ques
tion. We hope the Adauuiiutiiiun will not condemn
Gen. Taylor for having tailed to give Santa Anna tin.

What ilary say of laixaa in the Army.

Whnt (key say of kirn in Europe.
The editor of the New York Herald, who has been sev
tral mouths in Europe, writes from Paris to his paper, un.
Jer date of April 26, in the following strain :
" The accounts by the last steamer had left that gal.
laut man victor, it is true, in the field, but still sur
rounded and enclosed by tbe Mexicans in such a way as to
leive his position critical. Every American here believed
that he would overcome his difficulties, and his despatches
satisfied that belief—but all unite in censuring the unbccil.
ity and injustice of the American government—both Pres,
ident and Congress—in conspiring to plsre him in t ist un
equal and untow ard position. We are still anxious for the
next newt about Vera Cruz—and until that comes wc will
be poring over the last accounts, to extract comfort from
their contents.
“ Among military men, Gen. Taylor is considered one of
the greatest Gcnerils of the age. It ia asserted, without
hesitation, that he has performed as much with the means
at Ins command, as ever Napoleon or Wellington did —
1 was informed this morning by a gentleman, formerly
■ distinguished diplomatist in Europe, that Marshal Soult,
on reading the recent news, and particularly Gen. Tay
lor's despatches, declared, in empnatic language—* Votla
un soldaC—as much as to aay 'a great General—a vo y
great General.' These are pnvatc opinions naturally

"The treatment ol General Taylor by hia own govern

taking from him his best troops, ia very much blamed
here by every American, fin this point there is no di
vision of opinion.
" I trust that before this ejn reach New York, every
anticipation that we now entertain of Gen. Taylor will
liavo come out right end uppermost. Ilia talents—his
wisdom—hia modesty—the s tuple dignity of his de

American capacity and power, than any event since the

(LrThc New York Sun, which goes for “tho whole or

to have been written in loudon. which pretend, gravely to
set forth the contents of d. *|>a!chc* from Mr. Bankhead the
British Munster in Mexico, Inuuhing American progress in
ibai country—th* startling effect thereby produced in “ibe
Ministerial circle," (including, ol rourse, the trrilrr ot tin*
Muivehausen story,)—and the instructions thereupon sent
to Mr. Bankhead by Lord Paluieiatoo, and which it seems
have been all revealed, with the usual tlnpigity of ibo British
Cabinet, to the correspondent of the .Yew Tor* Nun ' •_
These instructions, wu are told, “direct the Knglish Minis
ter to push his efforts at mediation, lo urge a treat v of peace
not to lie over-scrupulous as to boundary iinss if the Ame
ricans ask territory, provided they retire north as lar as the
Rio lirande—and the moment the American army with

millions due to Kngland, and i! such demand is uot settled,
to *e:xe all the territory that ha. been left by tho V. States.”
So that poor Mexico, if this story be true, is ically between
hawk and buzzard ! But it is got up with too little art to
deceive any but a born 'diot. The Sun goes foe the oeru
patton of Ihe w hole 11 Mexico, and this Knglish bug-a-boo
is invented tor Ihe occasion, as iu counterpart was in 1844,
to precipitate the “ immediate or sooner” annexation of

The steamship Yacht, Capt. Crane, arrived yesterday

brought tiles lo that dale.
We find no account* of further depredation by the In

expressed, however, that Col. Hays, with his regiment of
Rangers, mil be allowed to remain in the State for tbe de

Taylor. Large numbers of Camanche* were com-entra

The Wacoes have recently formed a new settlement on
the clear fork of tho Braiue, about IjO miles above Tor

and the Caddoes appears to he adjusted, as no hostilities

The Hun Jt.se Robinson, Gen Goorge T Wood, Gen

again remark U|nn one of the good i|uaiitiea of Mr Worccstet's
pianos—the eaae with which the |dayer ran bring nut then fine
lone. There is something very pleasant in the sound of a piano
under a lady's touch. It should throw a male amateur into deapair
when he contrasts hta own touch with here, and fiuds him,elf ft
ted. aa It were, to bring out every harsh and braaen sound in ibe
strings. The d Iterance may be owing to that womanly tact which
avoid, every thing jarring, or .mootha it over. I'enainly loo maay
players do hiiiimrr out a melody on the piano w.lit all llie tuna utar
firrtion, if not t|iiue the musical elf-xr, of a 'harmonious black*
sniltb.' Now, it is haul 10abuse Mr. Worcester's pianos anas to
make them jangle, and they yield a line tone so readily aa to per
suade one tn deal gently by them. I tecommend them to tnciety
