Ilia old maater, the Gen- erl,'w mndt more civil than that when I met him in New Orleane, for we shook hands if we had both belonged to the same meas. He is rather below than above the common height of men, leee, I should say, thin five feet right inches, and ia now quite thin. He seem ed nervous and exhausted, having been feasted, and luted, end. speechified abont, until I doubt not, he was mach more Utigued thin he wis at either Monterey or Buena Viata, Great in justice has been done to him in the engravings of htm which every where (bound.

Now although his face . and features are not orrrelv intellectual.

From the New Orteana Delta ! The Man sf Mttlta. ' i ' " One nf the worft features in the political and social condition of the Mexican, is the predomi nance in her affair of men of notoriously de. praVrd character and cnwtrdly heart.. Bar! men rise to power and Influence in every country, .hut they rise by the tnrce of their talents, and lairs rapidly by the weight of their vice. Whenever they show, their unworthineae and their, rfebteed natures, thry are abandoned by the people, driven from power and place, and bnniehed forever from favor; Notoriously cor rupt and depraved mn cannot hold power even in the enlightened Monarchies, much Ice in the free Republic of the prearnt age. But it is not so in Mexico. There honesty, patriotism snd merit, ire driven to the den and forest where Victoria lurked and llidalpo worshipped, whilst men of notoriously treacherous character, weak minda and corrupt natures are elevated to pow. er, and command the confidence and suffrage of the people. Thereare many men in Mexico nf high and pure character, but who ever hears ol their exercising any influence on the govern ment of the country Who hers now. evert in the present emergency, when it might be supposed that all the talent and virtue in the country would be enlisted to support the totter ing pillar of their Republic, of the wise, pru dent, and inflexibly honeet Bitstamente of the experienced, intelligent, firm and patriotic Pe rt raxa of the chivalric, high-enuled and gifted Almonte of the mild and virtuous Herrera and nf the brave relic of the Revolutionary Bra voa! The first three have taken no part in the present dfliculties because their places were supplied by the corrupt satellites of Paredesand Santa Anna ; the last two have been pressed into service in the !aat extremity of the nation. Ilrrrera was selected by Santa Anna as one of the Commissioners to conclude and determine upon the proposal of Mr. Trist, with a view, no doubt, nf ahnlTl'eg npon Herrera' shoulders the responsibility of any pear e that might be concluded. Bravo was a anointed in defend the last fortification which remained in the barn's nf the Mexicans before their capital waa entered by our troops ; and worthily did he sustain at Chapultepee the high name and reputation a- chieved by himself and his two gallant brother in the Mex'can war of Independence. ' There waa not a soldier of otir nrave army' who waa present when the while haired veteran surren dered his sword to our General, and wept like a child over the miafortune of hia eountryv who did not feel his heart thmb with kit.dly sympa thy and sorrow, and his eye moisten with the involuntary fesr. ' ' ' ' ' But these are not the men. of power and in finance in Mexico. The corrupt administration nf Santa Anna, haa drawn to the surface all the vile charactera in the country. , Sut-h men as Valencia, Ampudia, Tornel, Gurrztix,, Salsa, Gary, Alvarrg and others men, tool and de pendent of Santa Anna, are the ruling spirits of Mexico. These are the men who have kept live the spirit of Revolution and insubordina tion in the country. They have brought Mexi co to her present condition, nd if they are per mitted to continue in power they will reduce her still lower. The first to involve their conn try le wr, they are always the foremost to fly from the peril they have provoked. Always opposed to peace, and loud toned advocates of war, they can never be brought to manifest their principles and feelings by acts rather than words. " We were led into these reflections by reading of the etupendou efforts of Gen. Perdtgon Ga rs to organise a militia force of 40.000 men, to operate againat our army. We could scarcely believe it possible that so arrant a coward aa this fellow Garay, would be gravely listened to in any matter relating to defensive and warlike operation. In no other country but Mexico could he ever command an audience on any mi litary question., ,This Generl.(for like all Mexican politician, he iGeoerl) w the first totaka to hi heeUtl Churubuscc. .Our cor respondent 'MuUng,! happening to be riding o- vet the field j"t after the Mexican baiterte were carried, Waa aitrcted by the groans of a mai in distress, and the plaintive sound of fe male voteee. He approached the place whence the sounds proceeded, end there, In a safe and aecure angle of the wall, he found a portly Mex ican rxtended. on the ground, groaning very lustily, whilst two welj dressed female were bathing hia brow with sen ee (otogne, and en dca voting, in vatinua ways, to revive him. Our correspondent offered to assist the ladiea, and la king hold of the wounded man, lifted him up on hi feet, when, strange to say; be flood up very firmtyi and opening his eye, and stretch ing out his arms, remarked that he believed he wai not entirely1 dead.' ' Our correspondent then asked him where be waa wounded t when the gallant Mexican proceeded ae (eel all hia limb, and finding all sound, and no visible injury btwt hie person, replied by looking very lovingly I toward hia feeaale companion, and placing hie I hind on hie heart, as the only perKoa of him ammmivan. there!. no appeal tut M force, the vital prlncpfe vv . , which had been vera aarinnal A.mmA k. k eveem nf the battle field. ...

Perd gon Garay, who ia now proposing to organic a force of 40000 men, to fight the very troops or whose millet and bayonets he had exhibited so much dread at the battle of Chnrubuseo. When the Mex'can prisoner were to be disposed of. Gen. Sroif waa strongly advieed by Gen. Worth to release Garay, for the reason that, in any fit lure hatt'e with the Mexicans, be would certain ly be the first man to run, and would probahly carry off a good many others with him. The suggestion was adopted by Gen. Srott, and Ga ry was permitted to po and fight his battles on the more suitable and lees dangerous arena of a Mexican Congress. He had no sooner arrived at Querela ro, than finding himself beyond the reach of the northern barbarians, he grew val iant,vand frying 'a ptagn of all cowards,' de nonnced and abused those Mexican officer who had given some preof nf valor, and on that ac count were retained in the Capital by General Scott. Among other. Gen. Torres, a noble Spanish veteran, who offered Gen Quitman so sturdy a resistance, and caused him so heavy a Ins at Belen, and who, in consideration of hia age and gallantry, waa treatud with marked at tention by Gen. Scott, came in for a large share of Garay' abuse, as a traitor and a coward.

Dr. Sylvester, an lis) ian by birth,- and an eminent chemist, has lisenvered a mode or hardening the human body lothe consistency of stone or solid marble, which he is about to exhibit in London! If ia specimens hive excited great astonishment. One waa the head of a lady, with her hair part ed and dreaaed, retaining ita flexible propertiee and colors,' although the surface from which it grew resembled stone somewhat like a wex model also a child's head, plump and aa in life, and a tongue petrified aa if it never uttered a aonnd. . The petrifying process is said to be simple snd cheap. A boqnet of choice flower the juices first extracted by a pneumatic pro- cePs preserved their natural colors, but were as hard snd rigid if some cunning workmen had carved them from Persian marble for nut only the Icavea and petala were rendered atone- like, but the minute hair-formed stems were rendered eoraline. ITjreAenge. Thia discovery was made several yeara ago in Italy by a physician named Sepatn, He in vented a method by which he could convert the entire body into stone in the space of about two weeks. The material was susceptible of a very high polish, and many article nf stone furni ture, such as centre-tables, &.C., were made from varinua parte of the body put together in the form of mosaic work. A it ha been the case with many other pioneers of acience, o it was with Segato. It was his fate to be regarded coldly by those who ought to have taken bitn by the hand, and aeeitted him out of the abundance uf (heir treasure. Wounded to the heart by thi cold-neglect, befell into a low fever. Du ring a atate of delirium he destroyed by fire all the paper which contained hia valuable secret On hie again regaining hi intellect, be deep. ly regretted what he had done, and waa anxious to amend it by making a verbal disclosure of hia process. But it was too late. The feeblenes of approaching dissolution prevented him, and he died in the effort to reveal his secret, another matyr to the dilatory remuneration of govern- went. .:: i i t t i ' ? He waa hardly cold in hia coffin before tbreo different propositions for purchaaing the secret were received, uither one of which, would have made him independent of all the contingencies of life. The re-discovery of thi process wo frequently attempted, and it via elated in on of the medical journals of the year 1643 that a no. tbor young Italian phyaieiaa had succeeded in petrifying bodies, without, however, being able to preserve the natural color.
