Bearer of Despatches?Another
Gone.?We hfvve lost says the N.
Orleans Tropic, many of our printers,
whose patriotism was too
warm to permit them to remain at
their 41 cases and now, the drain

uvgina iu wine iruui our euuoriai
department, as our associate T. B.
Thorpe, Esq., has gone to the Army
as bearer of Despatches from
Gen. Gaines. Well, we?that is
the remaining editors? are disposed
to go too! Mr. Thorpe will, while*
at the Camp, furnish the latest war
news for the Tropic.
The following note of distances
is not without interest at this time:
From New Orleans to Point Isabel
is 802 miles by water. From
Galveston to Point Isabel is 320
miles by water. From New Orleans
to Ver i Cruz is 1,500 miles.
From Yucatan to the city ot Mexico
is 900 miles. The population
of the city ot* Mexico is about 180,000.
It is thought that. Capt. Fremont,
who has distinguished himself in
command of the exploring expedition
into Oregon and California,
will be appointed Colonel of the
new regiment of riflemen.
Many of the papers contain glowing
descriptions of the wealth of
t he Mexican Churches. The alter
of the Cathedral in the city of'Mex- 1
ico, which occupies the site of the ]
Idol temple of Montezuma, is made
of pure Silver, ornamented with
gold, and surrounded by a balus- '
tivide surinounded with images,
which are made of compound of '
gold, silver and copper. The bal- (
ustrades is supposed to bo worth
more than a million of dollars. 1
Beside there are gold and silver J
vases, waiters, candlesticks, <$*c.
The property of the church, in '
gold and silver ornaments, is val- <
ued at not less than fifty millions *
of dollars.
Volunteers.?We learn that at 1
u meeting of the Richland Volunteer
Rifle Company, on the evening
of the 20th ult., it was voted [
to tender their services to the Go- .
vernor, and hold themselves in (
readiness to march to Texas.
We apprehend that the Rifle 1
company cannot he accepted by
the Governor, as the requisition '

is for Infantry. They can, however,
change their rifles for muskets
and he received ; or they can volunteer
as Kifle men to the President
himself, who will no doubt
accept them.

Capt. May.? 1 his officer, who
made the brilliant charge and captured
the battery, taking General
Vega prisoner, at the recent battle
near Matamoras, is, we learn,
irom Washington eitjr, and is well
known to many ol our citizens.
He is one of the finest horsemen
in the army, and always delighted- 1
to exhibit his skill in the management
of that n >hle animal. i\oth- 1
ing was too difficult for him to
attempt, lie has two or three
times been severely injured by his
daring. On one occasion in this (
city, for a bet of wine, with some
gentlemen, he rode his horse up
the steps, and into the passage of :
the City Hotel; having accomplished
this, it was suggested that
lie could not ride down again. ;
He immediately turned his horse
and rode down, jumping his horse
over the iron railing. Those who (
know the lonotion ran jmnrpfiurp
the difficulty of the fear. We also ;
remember the gallant Captain ha- 1
...ving been fined tor the breach of 1
an ordinance, 111 leaping his horse j
over a cord of wood, on t he pavement
in front of the City Hotel,
some time ago; and we would
now suggest to the Mayor the pro
priety of remitting that fine, instanter.

Col. McIntobh.?It will be ex- .
iremeiy gratitymg to the tnends 1
of Col. Mcintosh to learn that his
case has assume4 a favorable as- ,
pect. The circumstances of his
rencounter with the enemy, and
his rescue from superior numbers, 1
is almost miraculous. No wonder
that he was at. first reported
among the killed. i
We have seen a loiter to his
nearest relative in this city, which
states that Col. Mcintosh has suffered
the severest pain since last
Iivvuuuio Iiuill 111(11. A II<11 ior l\VC
days much anxiety was felt for his
situation, but on the 18th ultimo
he was quite easy and doing much
better than was expected.
TJol. Mcintosh's- wounds were
received in the battle ol the second
day, while leading Ins regiment
against the enemy's battery.
When he had almost rcached it,
his horse, a noble animal, was
shot from under him. Six Mexicans
rushed out of a small cluster
ol chapparal?(.for this light was
in tlie chapparal)?throe with
their bayonets pointed at his head.
One bruised his nose slightly?the
other went in at the mouth, knocked
out most ol the teeth on the
left side, "and passed through his
neck ; with the bayonet, thus they
pinned him to the ground. One
put the muzzle of his musket to
the Colonel's forehead and pulled
trigger, but the powder in the pan
flashed. Another put his musket
to the breast of the lallen olonel.
While in the act of firing, the Colonel
pushed it aside, and the contents
went into the ground A

some one come to his rescue at
the moment, his brains would have
been beaten out with their muskets.
The Colonel has another
slight wound in the log. The
wound in the neck has caused him
more pain than ten thousand
In the course of six weeks, it is
believed that the Colonel will be
able to travel, and a change from

The above particulars will be
read with interest by his numerous
friend in Georgia.
We desire many?many years
of health and happiness to one
who has so gallantly borne himself
in the hour of battle, first as Lieutenant,
and now as leader of a
brigade, who in the impetuosity of
the charge upon the enemy's destructive
battery, had no time io
think of their gallant Chief, but
were borne headlong upon the foe.
