DEAR Sta:-The performance of the

matters of interest here, has been delayed

our ntfieers. who had been at the battles
of Vera Cru'. and Cerro Gordo. and who
had returned on accnuttt of ill health to
the United States. The unfortunate sub
alterns were eharged with a breach of pa
role, aid being young men. frankly confes
sed to the fact. Col Don Juan Elemiancho
Roheldaldo and the Captain (whose nume
has escaped me) were also strongly sus

selves. They were brought up with us to
the castle of Perote. and I believe duichar
