Sir—l had the honor ot forwarding a communication
to vou on the •'■J ii st.. by the English mail steamer, in
wh ch 1 Mated that the Enelish government were tmrg t >
cffwet an armistice between the contending pat ties in Mex
j, o. gince thcu I have been informed that Miration has
made proposal- which have been rejected as Inadmissible
hr this government. 1 have not been able to ascertain if
thev have made any counter proposition.
(>n the ' 1 itst . Geu. Miramon having arrived at Mea
dellin, 1 seut Commander Turner, with the permission of
this government to communicate with him. 1 herewith
enclose Commander Turner's report to me.
()a the !th inst., this government withdrew the exequa
tur trout .'dr. li. B. J Twytuan, American Consul, for good
and substantial reasons they say. The whole of the facts,
I presume, will be reported to the State Department hv
the legation here. At the request of the Secretary td'
Legvtion 1 have^giveuH.ieut. Meiere, of themariue corpt,
perm.-ston to accept, lor the time being, of an appoint
a. ut from him of Vice Consul, which 1 trust will meet
vour approbation.
On the t’.th inst., two vessels, apparently tuen-of-witr,
appeared at anchor oft" Antigua, a small place about U
miles to the northward of this, w ithout any colors tiring.
After lying there some time they got under way, and
proceeded to the southward and eastward. They paid
no attention to the Hags on board of the men-of-war, tior
to the castle, from which a gun was fired to call their
attention to the t u t. Thev treated all with contempt,
and proceeded to Anton Lizvrdo, where they came to
anchor. Under these circumstances, I felt it my dutr to
ascertain who they were. I therefore sent the United
State-. Shift Saratoga, Commander Turner, upon that uu
tv. As the wind was directly ahead. 1 availed inysell of
tiie oiler of two -mall steamers to take him in tow. for
further particulars of the unfortunate oceurrence that
took f lace afterwards, 1 must refer you to Commander
Tun er's report. 1 do not see how it was possible lor
Commander Turner to do otherwise than he did, and I
thtnk he and the other otfioer- deserve great credit lor
lfir-1 ; ' tiding their tlig 1 shall send
the two steiimers to New Orleans, as soou as possible,
an 1 1 tve ordered Commander Jenkins, ot the Freble,
who will accompany them with the prisoners, after deliv
ers.: the steamers to the United States Marshal, to take
the prize crew on board bis vessel aud proceed to Feo
saeola lor prove tons.
I have been uuder the necessity of employing a part
of the engines* s, tirenien, Ac , belonging to the two
steamers, to cotivev them to New Orleans, and 1 have
directed Com. Jenkins to pay them f&r the time they
itiav be employed at the same rate as U paid lor their
grade in the navy of the United Stales.
This place is at the present time closely beseiged. On
the nig it of the f.tli inst., they attempted to carry it by
storm, but were beaten oil, and, trom present appear
ances. 1 thiuk the same result will occur should they
again attempt it. From all 1 can learn, they have as
iu my troops iu the citv as the Iwsriging.
I am, verv respectfully, vour obedient servant,
JO A. R. JARVIS, Captain.

To Capi vis Jos. R. Jarvis, Commanding United State*
ship Savannah .—
Sir—I have the honor to inform you that, in obedi
ence to vour instructions, 1 proceeded yesterday to the
head quarters of General Miramon, at the town of Mea
dehn. about lo ir leagues distant. Immediately on toy
arrival I despatched a messenger lo him to announce my
presence in the town, and to say that having in charge a
communication Irotn yourself, I should In* glad to know
at what hour be would bo pleased to receive me. I wu
informed in reply that he would see ine at once, without
10'S of time. 1 repaired to his lodgings, where I was re
ceived by him,accompanied by Gen. Robles and Mr. Dios,
his Minister of Justice. I informed him that I had been
instructed by you to say to bun that having been sent to
this coast lor the exclusive purpose of affording protec
tion to the p. r«< us and property of American citizens
as the senior officer present you had felt yourself bound,
at the earliest moment of his appearance betore Vera
I’ruz, to ascertain from him distinctly what were hi- in
tentions in respect to the persons and property of Ame
rican citizens m that city, in the event of his taking it.f
He replied, without hesitation, that as iu the case of
all foreigners he should respect them, und should afford
to both American citizens ami their property all the pro
^t.ou which it was in his power lo give.
•l then said, “Having received this assurance, sir, I urn
I further in-lrtcUd by Capt. Jarvis, to say that in yourat
' utek upon the citv, and in the event of vour gaiuing pos
-esston of it, he will c^se to be hoisted on the flagstaff
of each house coverifl®hmerican citizens and property
;he r i: of the United States, it order that as far as it
fc, possible thev aud it might be preserveu iru n winger
and damage by boinbardmeut, and to insure to the occu
pants of iho.-e residences that respect on the part of
your troops with which you have yourself expressed your
ily termination to regard them.
lie replied, that he concurred in the wisdom and ne
eessi'v of such an arrangement, and should bear it iu
mind,'and hoped it would be effectual in preserving them
from harm and injury.
i remarked, iu conclusion, that I wag happy to take
back such a reply as could uol fail to be satisfactory to
iiiv commanding officer; and thus ended the otlicial part
of our intercourse.
In b - deportment towards me Hen Miramon waagrave
and reserved, but respectful aud courteous. Ou the oth
er h&uil, Gen. Robles received and treated me with tue
utmost cordiality and kindness during uiy entire inter
view. On leaving I said to him that 1 desired to remain
iu the towu until the cool of the evening for my return,
and that I had several communications front persons in
Vera Cruz to members of their families who had taken
refuge in McuJelliua, which I should like to deliver, lie
replied, “Ho where you please, stay as long as you like,
and deliver what yon have to whomsoever you like,
i With which i took leave of him.
I have the honor to be, sir.
Very respectfully.
Your obedient servaut,

On Yrra Cat z, Mexico, March S, )
To ("apt. X>s If. Juki is, Comuiaudiug l uited State*Snip
Savannah:
Sir—On the morning of the ifth inat., two large stcun
ers appeared oil the harbor of \ era Cruz., without any
■iag being hoisted, although a guu was fired from the
Castle and the Mexican flag run up at the same time to
j induce the n to do -o. They were evidently confecer
| ates, as tbev never hove to for some time, communica
ting with each other. After several hours, and alter
■ communicatmi with the Spanish vessels of war at Saeri
| ticios, w biih -cut a boat to them, theyjstood down in the
direction of Anton Lizardo. You directed me immedi
tielv to place mv ship in tow of two American steamers
j here, the Wave and lndianola, which were placec at
vour disposal, to follow them, to ascertain iheir chartc
j ;er, where they were from, of what nation, where they
I Jilted out and what was their object upon this coast. Mid
| to report to you the result of these inquiries with all pos
sible despatch.
Iu obedience to these orders, 1 left here about sunset,
' m tow of those vessels, on board of each cf which 1
| plwced a delay Ument of about thirty-five men and ma
j riues, in case they might go into shoal water, where my
1 »bip, with her large draft, could not follow and commu
nicate with them. The detachment on board of the ^Vt('e
was commanded by Lieut. Joel S. I ennard, ut'the Smvajj
nab, accompanied b' Mju-'hipn.an Whittle. ot the Preble.
I That of the itidUn.Ja was commanded by Lieut. Bryson,
of the Prelde, accompar icd by Mr. Joseph Miller, of the
Muue vessel; Lieut Haves, oi the marine guard of the
Savannah, aud Lieut Meiere, of the marine guard of this
I .hip. I proceeded down the coast, making Anton Linar
I do, fifteen miles distant, where I expected to find them
| about midnight Two large vepela wejw reported *t
anchor at Anton Lizanlo. I stood directly for them.—
1 bad directed my pilot to anchor me immediately be
tween the two vessels. At the moment when I had near
ly reached this point, aud the tow off, both the steamers
being ahead ot me, they hailed and reported that the lar
ger steamer of the two was under w*v and endeavoring
to escape through the southern passage. 1 halted, and or
dered them to pursue him aud gel on board him it possi
ble, us 1 was ordered to communicate with the senior of
ficer, who 1 supposed was on board of this vessel. At
the same moment, I fired a shot ahead ol him to bring
him to. As soou as they got close to him, w hich was but
a few moments, to tny extreme astonishment he opened
a heavy fire of great guns and musketry upon them, and
it was reported to me at the same time that the other
steamer was slipping her cable.
1 immediately gave her a broadside, as I had not the
remotest doubt of her being in complicity with aud uuder
the orders of the officer ol the other steamer, and 1 was
al'iaid he would go to his assistance,!!! which ease 1 should
have been obliged to recall my vessels or to have wit
nessed their capture and destiuction; and as he had the
audacity to lire into me without any provocation whatever,
l was determined to seize him if 1 could. He ran up the
Spanish Hag as soon as I fired. In the meantime the
larger steamer was hotly engaged with the forces on
board my two little steamers in a running light. Finding
he could not get out of the.southern passage, he immedi
ately changed his course, put his head to the north ward
and passed inside of me to gain the northern passage ami
to keep out ol the way of tny guns, followed by my ves
sels, warmly engaged with him all the time. He was ev
idently loo fast for and was gaining upon them ; as he
shot ahead of them I got a gSn to bear upon him and
shot away his smoke slack. 1 lound now that it was im
possible to tire without danger to my v c-sela,aa they wen
all together. The chase was continued, and in the midst
of the hot tire on either side I could not but admire, at
this moment, the dating gallantry of these fine iellows,
contending with such a superior force. They closed in
upou aud grappled with him, in spite of hi? efforts tosbake
them off. finding it impossible to escape, I suppose he
ran but vessel on shore; at all events, pressed closely by
them, she grounded, which 1 was net aware of ut the
lime. They were then distant about a mile from my ship,
and uiy anxiety was intense tor their safety. 1 could al
lot d them t.o possible aid. lly three largest cutters were
on board, aud before I eould have manned boats aud got
to them, the affair would have been ended. 1 was not,
however, kept long in suspense, for almost immediately I
her.rd thtec cheers, and was informed that they were
bearding her over the bows, which could be uistinctly
seen by our glasses.
I now returii to the steamer at anchor close to me.—
Whilst the engag. incut continued between the other
vessels, and at Uie moment they were passing this ship,
the First Lieutenant, who was on the poop, called tue to
.-ay that thus steamer was tiring musketry. I directed
again a division of guns to be given him, which was
ri.v.ui l tlit*ik hxilnii uml nriierod him on hoard. As he*
did not come at once, I sent Lieutenant Chapman ou
board to say if be did not instantly come on board, I
would send a guard to bring him. He came on board,
and informed me, in answer to my inquiries, that this
ship was the Marquez, of Havana; that he had been em
ployed bv (.’apt. Matin, who commanded the oilier ship,
to transport stores and muni, ions of war, and that he was
Spanish. In the meantime, 1 hud sent an otliccr to tiring
C’apt. Marin on board. As soon as he reached my cabin
l asked him how lie had dared to lire upon my vessel.
He replied unhesitatingly, and in the presence of a
witness, that when lie observed my vessels steering into
the harbor, lie had informed bis crew that he was sure
they were American vessels of war, and positively had
forbidden them to tire, but that it was a mixed crew of
\ arious nations, having been but recently taken ou board,
and not being yet property disciplined ho loui.d it im
possible to control them.
I observed that it was a gieat outrage, for which he
would have to answer, which he pretended most deeply
to regret; all of which I knew tube untrue, because du
ring the action he was distinctly heard calling upon his
men to bourd with him.
It only remains for me to speak ol the force arid arma
ment of these vessels, as tar as I have been able to us
ed tain tbeui. The larger steamer, called the Miratnou,
carries two broadside, one pivot guu and several howit
zers, w ith a ctew of about one hundred nun. I am not
positive as to the calibre of her guns. Supposing she
w ould follow me up yesterday, 1 expected to have been
able to give a minute account of her, but sbe is still
aground.
The Marquez of Havana carriesalso one pivot and two
broadside guns, with about seventy per-ons on board.—
Her pivot gun i- a heavy tweuty-lour pounder. The cap
tain of this last veast 1 threw overboard qualities of am
munition, much of which was picked uptioatiug in the har
bor by mv boats, in chests and kegs. When he was ta
ken possession of, Iils guns were all dismounted and ly
ing upon the deck beside the carriages, which, 1 have
no doubt, was done after he found he was captured, and
before I could get a boat on board of him.
He assumes to be an armed vessel, ai d his papers of
clearance do not speak of his having any guns on board,
vet his armament is such as I have reported it, and there
is no doubt but that his vessel was «quipped at Havana
as a part of the force with which Capl. Marin was to act
ou this coast.
It uow becomes in? painful duty to speak of a circum
stance which has occasioned me the deepest concern and
regret. About two hours alter the engagement a boat
came alongside, from the ImlianoU, with a person very
badly wounded, dressed in citizens clothing. I'pon iu
quirv I was iuforrned it was (iell. Shi bo ot the Mexican
army. I immediately had him taken to my cabin. It
seems bv his own account, as he related it to me, that as
I was about leaving Vera Cruz he was sent off to the In
dianoia by his government to obtain some information
as to my movements, and that in the hurry and confusion
of getting under wav aud towing out, his boat left him.
The officers commanding these vessels had been particu
larly instructed by me to allow no stranger or others than
Americans to remain on board—no one but their crews,
engineers and tiremeu. As these were all straugers, the
oliieer in command could not distinguish between them
and other sttauge persons ou board, and did not know
that lie was on board until he saw him wounded. Imme
diately on my arrival I sent him on a cot to the cast la,
w here be now is. Lieut. Bryson is uot to blame; he
knew nothing of his coming on board.
On our part 1 am glad to be able to report to you the
small loss our vessels have sustained. I hu ve had but one
man mortally wounded, who is still alive; one Seriously,
snd several slightly. This is the more remarkable as the
engagement lasted Irom a half to three-quarters of an
hour, and the tiring was incessant during that time; but
it must be remembered it was at night.
On the part of these people the loss was much more
severe. Twelve were brought on board my ship severely
wounded, three of whom have since died. I have sent
all the rest to the hospital. The wounds, in almost every
ease being by Minis title bnllels, aie very severe. I
should have remaiued at Anton Lizardo until die Mira
inon was got afloat, but the doctor requested me to come
up at once with the wounded.
I cannot close this despatch, sir, without expressing my
extreme satisfaction with the conduct of all the otlicer*
aud men of the expedition. My own otlieers and men,
who, unfortunately had but a small share in the engage
ment, by alacrity, activity and promptitude to obey and
execute orders, taught me to feel with wiiat confidence
I could depend upon them if my ship should he at
auv time called upon to defend the honor of her ttag.
1 have alreailv spoken ot tne conduct oi tne otticers
and men on board of the Iudianola and Wave. On tbeir
part it was a brilliant affair. 1 have omitted toVtatc that
the vessel of Captain Marin called Miratnon, did not hoist
her colors at any time before, during or after the engige
nient, and that it was a brilliant moonlight night, when
he eouid have most easily satisfied himself that the Sara
toga eould not possibly have been a vessel belonging to
any Mexican party or power. I have also omitted to
state that the clearance papers of the Mariptez certify to
only thirty-three persons on board; whereas I am inform
ed bv the officers now itj charge of her that after thirty
of them had been removed, there remained at least for
ty ou botrd i)f hey. As this ship was .cut Immediately
back to assi.-t boating tt.e Miratnon, J have been unable
to make an accurate report of the number of persons on
board of her.
About the time the Miramou was taken, a boat escap
ed lrom her to the shore, said to contain officers o| Gen.
Mtrauion's army.
Tne statement which I have submitted to you of all
the important details of this affair will be testified to by
every officer of tne expedition.
Very respectfully,
T. TURNER, Commander.
THIRTY-SIXTH COHGRBW—FIrnl Sea*ioi|,
\V soil isotox, March S'.lJt (Stitt.
SENATE
Mr. Lane asked and obtained leave to introduce a bill
to complete certain military roads in the Territory of
New Mexico; which was read twice and refetred to the
committee on military affairs.
On motion of Mr. Grimes, a resolut'on was adopted in
structing the committee on naval aff'.irs to inquire into
the expediency of providing, by law, tl at there shall be
no more appointments to the grade of pursers in the
navy, and all duties now performed by officers of the
line; and also to inquire into the expediency of provi
ding that all appointments to the marine corps of the
United States shall be made from graduates of the United
States naval academy.
On motion by Mr. Green, the Senate proceeded to the
consideration of the joint resolution submitted bv him
some time since, providing that both Houses of Con
gress shall take a recess from the 20th of April to the
2>tth of May.
Mr. Anthony remarked that if this proposition should
be adopted, the Senate would come togethc, again lit
May with the conutry suffering nude,- three 1 Vemdentiid
nominations; and it would bn well previously to fix tbf
day of final ad oiirnmeut, or fisc the effect i,f this re.it
luiion would iaevitabl) bp to prolong the session. He
therefore moved to amend the resolution bv adding,
"and that the presiding officers respectively adjourn the
two Houses of Congress sine die on the-day of
June next.” He would leave the blank to be filled to sn|»
the convenience of the Senate.
Mr. Clingman was opposed to the proposition to take
a recess, bnt he suggested that the blank be filled with
the first Monday in June. Here w as a proposition to ad
journ for one month to allow Senators and members of
tjie pouee to Attend political conventions; but it did seeit\
to him that the principal bueiuess of Congress was legis
lation.
Mr. Brown rinarked that Senators wort- paid by the [
year to do the public business, and they ought to stay
here until they had done it. The argument was made,
when the inode of compensation was changed, that it
would lead to a neglect of the public business ; but it was
supposed that members of Congress would not go home
and leave the business undone. He would like to he here
every day so as to get through as soon as possible.
Mr. Iverson said he knew three Senators who were
delegates to the Charleston Convention, and members of
the House were anxious to have this resolution adopted,
in order to make a change in the internal arrangements
of their hall.
Mr. Uwhi was opposed to the idea of a recess'of this
kind.
After some further discussion the resolution'was voted
down—yeas 12, nays29.
After*the consideration of executive business the Sen
ate adjourned.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The House passed the army appropriation bill.
Mr. Fenton,from tliecommittee on revolutionary claims,
reported a hill providing for the settlement of the claims
of the officers and soldiers of the revolutionary army,
and the soldiers and children of those who died in the
service.
Mr. Boyce, from the committee on foreign affairs, re
ported the French spoliation bill.
A message was received from the President of the Uni
ted States, protesting against the action of the House in
the matter of Mr. t’ovode's resolution, bringing vague
and indefinite charges against him, while the Constitution
provides for impeachment.
Mr. Sherman regarded this ns a highly important sub
ject. He maintained that the House had a light to con
duct investigations in any way it may deem proper; tiiat
as to rights, the President had no more tbau a member
of the House. He accepted the issue tendered by the
President. The doctrine of the communication was such
as lost Charles the Firt bis head.
Mr. Bocock defended the positions of the President,
who did not object to any action on the part of the House
under the impeachment clause of the constitution, but to
the vague uud indefinite charges which had been made
i.g.iinst him. He only wished to be treated as any other
citizen.
Mr. Covode said that the President, in his centennial
Pittsburg letter, had charged that money hud been used
in the Pennsylvania election, and his object was to dis
cover the guilty parties.
Mr. (Jrow said that the committee did not propose to
impeach the President, but the House had the right to
institute an inquiry in any way it thought proper, and to
provide that the facts shall he reported to the House.
Mr. Whitelev inquired whether the gentleman was wil
ling to proceed agaiust the President without specific
vnai^r-.
Mr. Florence said that was what the President ol jeeted
to. He complained that the courtesy extended to a com
mon pick-pocket was not extended to him.
Mr. Curtis said if he hail been in the House he would
have objected to the reception of the message. It was
an interference with the rights of the House.
Mr. IJocoek replied, dofeutliug the President's views.
Mr. Ilusl.in thought that this matter had been discuss
ed in a manner nu w orthy tin' dignity of the House. The
debate as to dirty party politics was not iu order. Th«
House had been insulted by this Napoleonic decree oi the
present President.
Mr. iiocock bowed to the gentleman’s lecture on dig
nity, and continued aud concluded his remarks.
Mr. Sherman moved that the message be referred to
the committee on the judiciary, with leave to report at
any time. This was agreed to.
Mr. Hickman the chairman ol the committee, faid that
when the report shall have been made, at an early day,
a full oportuuity would be afforded for discussion.
Mr. Sherman, from the committee of ways and means,
reported the consular and diplomatic bill, which was re
ferred to the committee of the whole ou the Stats of the
Union.
The House then went into committee on the deficiec',y
bill, when
Mr. Montgomery made a speech in defense of the «iews
of Judge Douglas on the slavery question.
After further proceeding*, the committee rose, and the
House adjourned.

missioners, to assemble at Washington, to arbitrate the
difficulty between the Rhode I-land Company and the

tors ol the frigate Philadelphia.

sidering and pa-sing six bills, the Senate adjourned.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Mr. Stewart pte -ented to the House the memorial of
eight thousand three hundred and forty-seven lega’

not called for, it shall be done, instead of beiug seut to

AMERICANS IN PARIS—AN IRATE ORGANIST.
Pa ris, Thursday, March 8, ISf.n.
An unusual excitement attended an American mar
riage, to-day, at the Church of St. Roch, on account of
.... y. ..,y . ...
eldest daughter uf Mr. Corbyn, ol Virginia, was married
in that church, to the Martini* of Montmort, (the
second daughter married the Viscount de Darupierre,)
and the Corbyn family being Protestants, the organist,
probably at the instigation of the clergy of the church,
refused to play. M. de Montmort then had recourse to
M. Amedeo, a celebrated Italian organist eouiposar, and
engaged him to play for the marriage, The other artis s
of the church thereupon organised an opposition, and 1
have not learned how thq affair was finally adjusted. M.
Amedeo Is himself on tjte point of getting married, and
his marriage depends on the obtaining of a place as or
ganist in ouc of the large churches of the city. The op
position organised against him, g is feared, may ruin the
prospects be had before him, ami this act of religious in
tolerance is calculated to produce much excitement.

A Woman Hutto in Minnkbota—Scent on the (/allow*.
—The St. Paul (Minn.) Pioneer, March 2Uh, contains a
long account of the execution of Mrs. Bilansky, at that
place, for the murder of her husband by poisoning, The
murderess made the following remarks on the scaffold:
“ I die without having had any mercy showu me, or
justice I dje fur the good of my soul, and not for mur
der. May you all profit by my death. Your courts of
justice are not courts of justice—hut 1 will vet get justice
in Heaven. 1 am a guilty womau, 1 know, but not of this
murder, which was oommitted by another. I forgive
everybody who did me wrong. I die a sacrifice to the
law. I hope you all may be judged batter than 1 have
been, and by a more righteous judgo. I die prepared to
meet my God,”
Her demeanor was not defiant nor stoical, nor did she
shed a tear. It is believed that she expected a pardon cr
reprieve to the last moment. Dr. Miller, the deputy sher
iff, then approached her with the rope, when she exclaim
ed, “Dr. Miller, how cau you stain your hands by putting
that rope arouud my neck—the instrument of my death*”
He assured her that duty compelled him to do ir, and she
made no resistance, and only said, “ Do, for God's sake,
put it on so it will net suffocate me.”
After it had been arranged Dr. Miller (coy the black
cap from his pocket, and proceeded to put it yn her head,
when she said, “Be e'.ra that m\ face V well covered.”-—
All this place in (ess time than it will taye to vead it,
during which s(te said several t(n\{is, ''s»od have inerey—
God have* mercy fth ray soul." Her last words were,
“Lord, .Ic§ifs Christ, teoeive my soul.”
She was requested to take a step forward on the drop,
and then everything being prepared, Dr. Miller maue a
motion to Sheriff Tullis, who pulled the fa*,al rope, and.
in an instant she fell, and in a few i vconda life was ex
tinct.
