Taylor took Matamora«, it wa? 1 represented to him by public scandal. that there ; were fifty or sixty person* in it, who were wound | ed in the battles. 'The number was considered remarkably small and created some surprise.— After the public stores were taken possession of, there were found among them a quantity of t<> I bacco; a portion of the best was divided out ■ among our troops, and the remainder, Gen. Toy - lor ordered to be sold at auction, the prceeeds to i he applied to the relief of the Mexican wounded soldiers. This led to some examination, when to the surprise of all, the “commission” appoint ed to enquire into the number, found nearly four hundred sick and wounded. This startling fact, justified the American estimate of the deadly j effect of our arm*, which was «o flatly contra dicted, by the number of wounded, first reported as being in the city by the Mexicans. A visitor in Mitamoras, would find the Hos pitals places of melancholy intere-t, and sources of constant surprise. 'I’hey developed trait-o! the Mexican character, no where else exhibit* d The veil is torn away in these receptacles of suffering humanity, and it was a matter of -cri ous speculatiou, whether the horrors of war, were not eclipsed by the horrors ol the social condition, of the pour wretches, whose mutilated bodies were strewn around. Not a street in Vista morn* was destitute of its hospital, and a* y u moven about, a curtain before the door of some private house would blow a-ide, and u veal the cot, with the attenuated form stretched un j der a sheet, surrounded by silent muses, that | seemed to he dark figures, wrought into the solid walls against which they were relieved. There were plenty of excellent bouses for the Mexicans to place their wounded in. but their officials paid no attention to comfort, even where it wa- ns easily obtained, as the miserable places in which the wounded were often thrown, as j useless remains of a defeated battle field. Hence 1 the meson, a dirty low building, the public Inn of the place, where horses and men find with equal accommodation a lodging lor the night, wa , chosen among other indifferent places as a hos pital. In the city, better buildings were appro priated to such u*es, in but all, were the same indifferent attentions, or rather “neglects,” of the invalids. I lie sick, generally, lay upon the ground, some few enjoyed the luxuiy of a rawhide to repose • upon, and a block of wood to support tlieir heads, a sheet of white cotton was wrapped closely about their attenuated frames, exaggerating the horrors they partially concealed. Some parsed their time in heavy sleep, with half opened eves, that leered upon the spectator more horribly, than did those of the unburied dead, at Palo Alto. Some never slept, but ever looked with eyes of living coals of lire, that betrayed the fever that was consuming them; some swayed to and fro, as if impatient of the restraints of sickness, and i were longing for their far mountain homes, from v. hich they had been torn, to fight battles in which they had no interest; some sat doggedly, staring into the dust in which they sat, scarce sense enough to feel, or mind enough, to specu late upon their condition. Were these indeed the brave soldiers of the 8th and 9th, who had about them their ghastly titles, that showed they had been in the thickest of the fight. Were these men Mexican-? Were such varieties of colors, all equal in social con dition? Even so. The Castilian with auburn hair, the swarthy Indian with straight, the dark negro with kinked, with all their intermediate mixtures, lay side by side, ail Mexicans, all of the same sympathies, feelings, language. All moved in their winding sheets, evidently equal in mind and b6dy. To the American, who makes distinctions in colors, this strange mixture of races in one neovU, causes the greatest surprise. Their countenances were hideous from natural physiognomy, every style of expiession was rep resented; the African with low forehead and pro truding lips; the besotted Indian, his straight hair hanging over his regular features, giving it ad ditional ferocity; the Malay, looking mongrel, with tawny skin, slight moustache, and cold blooded treacherous eye-; the low, cunning, yet intelligent brutish white man. All these various faces peered out from among loo<e folds of white j cloth, that fall about them, giving them the look 1 of Arab*, or some eastern crew of a pirate ship. I And vet these were all Mexicans, and might ’ have been, without offence to that people, blood | relations,‘members of the same family, i Go where vou would and there were eviden ces of the Artillery. JtinggolJ had written the : strength of “his arm,” with terrible destruetiw ; ness, within the walls of the Mexican ho-pilal*. I Arms and legs gone, shattered bodies, ghastly j wounds, all too hideous lor the musket, were everv where to be seen. It was surpr.sing that | men could live thus tom to pieces. And yet the greatest suffering apparently, was from a mu-ket hall. Had it been grape, or of heavier Hiateii.il, it would have done its woik effectually, and left its victim painless in death. As it was, it had gone through the breast, tearing the line ma chinery of the lungs to pieces, and yet left vitali ty enough, to have them move on in their ruins, poisoning the whole frame w ith impure Mood, and leaving the patient to suffer beyond the j imagination to conceive. Poor soldier, his breath, rattled and lore away at his vitals, his sufferings were, indeed, a dark spot on the bloody page of wrar! Amidst all their misery and desolation, amid-t these places, so humbling to pride, so saciiflcmg j to vanity, woman was there, devoted to a hu— j band or a n rot her; -he sat in the dust, fanned a w/.y j ihe torturing in-ects that lived on their blood, and j revelled in their woum s, sanctifying the most j menial oflicis by her >pu it ami influtM.cc, and j shedding by her smiles, by her silent attention-, bv her teachings o! hope m another world, the only bright rays that are seen to glimmer in a Mexican Hospital.—V. 0.
