Ml Foreign Ntus?By the steamer Caledonia., \vc have news from Europe up to the 4ih instant, which, however, is ol but little importance. The Great Britain left Liverpool on the 22d ultimo, and went ashore at Rathmullin. on the coast of Ireland ; the passengers were all safely l.indeil, consisting of 185. The Caledonia brought the mails of the Great Britain. i he contemplated marriage between the Duke de Montpensier and the Infanta of Spain, is producing much discussion in the European journals. The European Times says that the English Government seems disposed to do all that it can to avert this end. Every means are being taken at this time to give employment to the poor and star ving population oi Ireland There have been some famine riots in various parts of that country among the people The sales of cotton up to the sailing of the Caledonia had been quite large, and prices were a shade higher Mcxican Affairs.?A letter written from New York to the National Intelligencer, states as a fact, on which reliance may be placed, that when Santa Anna left Havana he carried with him several distinguished Mexican officers. and among them one of the best cavalry officers now living. This officer, it is said, declared while in Havana, that with five thousand men, well mounted, he would defy any hostile force to reach the city of Mexico. The correspondent of the Intnllinrrn O cer is of the opinion that a speedy peace is not to be expected, and that the war which Santa Anna intends to prosecute not yet commenced. " His object," says the writer, 11 will be to cut up our army in detail, and force upon us enormous expenditures. His arrangements on leaving Havana weie made to meet the event, iney were altogether military, and not pacific. It was for this reason he favored the choice of a President known to be prejudccd against the United States. Such a man is General Almonte, now President." From the Washington Union. GEN. KEARNEY IN SANTA FE. The whig journals have, of late, been greatly troubled about the transactions of this officer, and the Intelligencer, of this morning, blunders and twaddles through three columns, with the patriotic purpose of showing that Gen. Kearney, *.n taking military possession of New Mexico,and making arrangements so to hold it without farther shedding of blood, pending the war, and subject to the orders of his government, has violated the constitution of the United States! This is all quite in keeping with the whole course of the Mexica n orwn n wWV? (m . 1 "t " > " unfortunately happens to be published not at Mexico but at Washington Unable to deny the glory of Gen. Kearney's Vtctory, it contents with assailiny him, (and through him the administration under which heacis,)a8 forget'ul of the limitations imposed upon his military au ihority by the constitution and laws of his country. Such a pre-judgeir rnt of i his acts in the heartofa foreign province, r just wrested from the enemy by his p skill, bravery, and indomitable perseverance, is vei?y characteristic treatment of s a gallant and partiotic soldier, by the v whig organ ! g But the whole case lies in a nutshell. Oreneral Kearney, in due prosecution of t lawful war, invades a portion of the ene- 1 my's country, compels the hostile army r to abandon it, and takes military pos I session of its capital and territory in the a name of his government. By the sim- i plest and plainest laws of war, it is his s right and his duty to hold possession ol c what he has conquered as a belligerent \ subject to the orders of his government, till the war shall be terminated by a trea- r ty. For the means which he has adopt- ( ed, that are necessaiy to secure his inili- ' tary occupancy during the war, he is, t as an officer, responsible; jlo the authori- ( ... 1 .1 L 1 ly unucr which ue ucis. c In support of these propositions as to t the belligerant rights of the comanding c officer of an invading American army, 1 we do not deem it necessary to quote i either Vattelorany other authority legal or constitutional, such propositions need only to be stated. No one will dispute ' them unless it be the publicists ol the ( Diurio, at Mexico, or of the Intelligencer j at Washington. i As to the final dispositon of the terri t tory thus occupied and held by the laws ' of war?it b-longs to a very differe nt jurisdiction. It belongs exclusively to ? the constitutional authorities of our ^ country?thai is to say, the treaty-ma- 1 king and the law-making powers un J der our constitution Nothingcan be ' done in relation to them except by these t authorities. The ultimate disposition of r the territory?its annexation, govern- t inent, or surrender?;i 11 this is to be set ( tied by treaty and by federal legislation I \ Interesting accounts from the Bat- c tle Ground?Under this caption we r find in the Baltimore Sun of the 20th, some additional particulars relative to t the attack on Monterey, furnished by ; correspondents. Our limits will not al- I low us to-day to gi?;c the correspondence t entire, ut the main particulars contain- I ed in the accounts will be found bel^w* t Matamoras, Oct. 1. Gentlemen : I wrote you a few days ' since from the Camp at Monterey, since 1 when I have been despatched to this place on public business. As I return to-morrow, 1 have only time to say one Word. 1 The entire loss in our batalion (Balti- ' more) is 8 killed, and. as I am informed. J 16 wounded?oil slightly but one. 1 \ have seen none, either of the killed or wounded, and therefore cannot give 1 names. J Col. Watson was killed in the impru- ! dent charge ordered by Gen. Butler. He was at the head of the battalion, and . had ordered us to go into the charge with , three checrs. He received a ball in the breast while in the act of cheering, and fell instantly. I tried to get to him, but 1 was borne on in the rush. The charge was ineffectual. At this moment Gen , Taylor rode up in great anger and ordered us to retire. Old Rough came up ^ under the most tremendous fire. It was here his horse was shot. It is said there 1 were angry words passed between him c and Butler. 1 Capt. Stewart now took command, and said:?" Boys your colonel is killed, don't run, show those d d red skins, that although you are ordered to retire, 1 you intend to walk.11 With this, he 8 shook his fist at them, and d d them * preuy considerably. Uur entire loss will 0 not be much short of 800 to 900 killed c and wounded?the enemy the same. c Ampudia has given up the main fort as 1 per articles of capitulation, and the stars c and stripes were floating over it when I left. There is no doubt now but that Am. pudia will be reinforced in about one > month by 12,000 men. They will be under Santa Anna. We must have 10,000 more volun- 1 teers Mark that! t I will relate you a number of inci- s dentsthatoccurred during the three davs: s ^oj. mcv^iung, oi me Mississippi, the I great duelist, got upon the breast-works, r waved his hat, and was in the act of j giving three cheers, when a ball struck c him, from the effects of which he has t since died. c Samuel W.

Worth, t and turned to the city.

We expect another battle at Saltillo, u suun us me armistice expires, unu as ve have now got our hand in, we will rive them rougher usage next time.
