Circumstances caused his halt on the night of the 20th, short of the in: tended position. On the morning of the 21st he continued his route, and aliter an etbcounter with a lerg e body of' (he ene my's cataliy at id ontry~, supported by drtillery fiorn the heights, he repulsed th~em with loss, and finally eneempd, covtering the passage of the Snitilfo road. It w~as here discovered, that besides the fort at the Bishop's Palace, and the occupation ol' the heights above it, t wo forts, on Comn ihanding ernicences; on the opposite bide of the San Juan,'had freen fortified and 6ecupied. The 'wd latter heights were then stormed and carried-the guns of the last fort carred being .immediately turned with a pitinging fire upon .tfie Bighop's Palace. On this lame morning [ the 2lst} the 1st Division of regular troops, under Getn. Twiggs;.nd the Volunteer Division ' a nder Gen.

A heavy shower of rain also came up to cause a suspension of hostili ties before the'close of the day. The 3d, 4th, and 1st Infantry, and the Baltiinore 1Battallion, remained ats the garrison of the captured positioit, ujider Col. Garland, as iisted by Capt. Ridgeley's battery. Two 12 pounders, one 4 pounder, and one how itzer, were :captured ih this fort, 3 officers and some 20 or 30 men taken prisoners. One of the 12 pounders was served against the second fort and defences, with captured ammunition, during the remainder of the day, by 'Capt. Ridgeley. The storming parties of te1. Worth's Division also cap tured two 9 pounders; which were also im mediately turned against their former owners. On ihe morning of the 22d, Gen. Worth continued his operations, and portions of his division stormed and carried succes sively the heights above the Bishop's 'al ace. Both were carried by a command under Capt. Vinton, 3d Artillery. In these-operations, the company of Louisi ana troops under Capt. Blanchard, per formed eficient and gallant service as a part of Capt. Vinton's command. Four pieces of artillery, with a good eupply of ammunition, were captured in the Bishop's Palace this day, some of which were im mediately turned upon the enemy's defen ces in the city. On the evening of the 22d Col. Garland and his conimnatd were relieved as the garrison of the captured forts by Gen. Quitinan. with the Miissis sippi and Tennessee Regiments. and five companies of the Kentucky Regiment. Early on the morning of the 231, Gen. Quitman, froth his position, disco4ered that the second and third forts and defen ces east 'of the city had been entirely abandoned by the enemy, wid, appre hending another assault on the night of the 22d, had retired from all his defences to the main plaza and its immediate vicinity. A command of two companies of Missis sippi arld two of Tennessee troops were thu thrown into the streets to reconnoi tre. and sdon became hotly engaged with the enemy. these were soon supported by Col. Wond's Regiment of Texas Rangers, dismounted, by Bragg's Light Infantry and the 3d Infantry, the enemy's. fire was constant & uninterrupted from the streets, house tops, barricades &c., &c., in the vicinity of the plaza. - The' pieces of Bragg's battery were also used with much effect far in the heart of the city-=this en gagentt lasted the heat part of the day, our troops-having driven the scattered par ties of the enemy, and penetratod quite to the defeiieso tbe main plaza.

A fter several offers in relation to the capitulation of the city made on either side and refused, at half past 4 p. M. Gen. Taylor arose, and saying he would give Gena. Amnpudia one hour to consider and accept or retuse, left the con ferencee with his olicers-at the expiration of the hour, the discharge of the rnortar was to be the signal for the recommence meat of hostilities. Before the expiration of the honr,- however, an officer was sent on the part of Gen. Amapudia, to inform the American General that to avoid the further effusiotn of blood, and the national honor being satisfred by the exertions of the Mexican troops, he had, after conaspl tation with his General Otlicers, diecided to capitusialie, accepting rho offer of the American (General.

The Whig party in-those sections of our country where it is most numerous, is ylaying a most desperate game. We re cently quoted an article from the Boston Courier, proclaiming in the strongest terms the worthlessness of our Federal Union. Theiarticles which we give below, from the Boston Post, show. pretty clearly that the promulgation of such a sentiment, the Boston Courier hardly misrepresents, it any considerahle degree, the prevalent Whig feelings in that city. In fact the recent movements which have lately taken place in several of the New England States, go very clearly to prove that the whig party of those States is nownearly if not quite ready and re solved to throw itself isto.the arms of the abolitionists, or at least to coalesce to them and with their principles. The course of events in New Hampshire which resulted in the recent election of John P. Hale to the UnCited States Senate-the invitation sinutaneously extended by the whigs of Maine to this same Mr. Hale.-the New Hampliire abolitionist, to canvass the State of Maine by the Whig side, prior to the election-the fell and cordial extension of the right hand of fellowship by the whigs of Boston, to the. first named ta these gentlemen taken in connection with the recent establishment of a Whig aboli tionist journal in Boston, (the Daily Whig,) to be the organ of these viels all these things seem to leave little doubt that the Whigs of New England are sub stantially ready at this moment to take their position on the abolition platform. But the northern mail of this morning firings. to us the proceedirgs of the Whig State Convention of Massachusetts, as undoubted confirmation of this view, for which we confess the previous indications we have referred to had not fully. prepar ed us. The Whig State Conveniion as sembaled in 1anueill F-all, on the 23d inst., and appears to have embraced a full rep resentation of the Whig sentiment in las sachusetts. It adopted about three col umns of resolutions, only for a single spe cimen of which we can . afford rooi.V It is as follows "Resolved, That tie Whigs of Massa chusetts regard slavery as a great moral, political, and social evil, and. they there fore pledges themselves to present as firm a front of opposition to the institution of slavery, as is consistent with our dllegi once to the constitution, and our duties as noirribers of ihe confedera'y'. Resolved;Thiat the -Whiigs ofMassa zjpise...se-lkenihm t uried kegsit tional anil prbptr means to restrain themal ready preponderatidg influence of slave hIlding interests. in the national legisla tian, to defeat all measures calclated to uphold slavery, and promote all constitu tibual measures for its overthrow, and will oppose at all times, with uncomnpromising zeal and firmness, any farther addition ol slaveholding States to this Union, out of whatever territory formed; and they will ini like manner oppo. seall further extension of the slavery of the African Lace on this continenot. If utnder the goverenent of Providence, it shmall happen that piortions of thiis conatinent, net belonging ,to the U. $tates, shall be s~ettled by the Saxon race, let those setlers carry with iliem, wherever they go, together with their own free blood, the blessings of free govern. ment and free institutions for all, and fetters for none.

Svuth Cirolina olcy.-T he ir'ual exercise of this institution were resumed on Monday last, .under the most flattering auspices.

The applications for a admission, we leartn, were mioro numbers than at atny previous period in tie history of the College, and the numbers of new stu dents received on Monday and Tuesday aniouais to fifty one. This increese is, in a great degree. on doubt, owing to the distinguished reputation of the President, and .the ability and popular manner with wvhich ho discharged his duties the first ~ year. Indeed the whole Faculty as a unit is tnot in' inferior, we bielieve, to that of any ~ similar insiitution itn the country ; and we look forward to no distant period of time e when our College under its government , will rank among the first literary and j scientifie institutions o ftheage.- Chronicle .The Rail Road timeeting at this place on5 Monday last, was large and respectable ;b and from the feeling manifested on the a occasion, aad from the opinions we have ti but little doubt the entterprize will be gone into in earnesh, by those who are able to carry it on, in spite of any efforts that may sa Ise made in opposition to it.-Anderson te Ga::ette : d a Bishop Onderdonk's Salary.-On the at day's session of the Episcopal Con-. rention of New York a resolution was adopted by a vote.of 169 to 71, directing a the trustees of the Episcopal fund to pay n to the Bishopithe sumn of $2,500 annually hi from the [st October next, for two -years, gi he Bishop giving security to return the tr same, if some competent tribunal should fa decide that hie was not entitled tohbe paid y soy salary during his suspensiozn.
