ti H i! 11 were also captured, though large numbers were killed. Thus ended the glorious battle of Contreras, in which 2000 med, urtderGeneralP. F.Smith, completely routed and destroyed an army of 8000 men, under Gen. Valencia, with Santa Anna and a force of 20,000 men within five miles. Their army was so completely routed that not 150 men rejoinedSanta Anna and par ticipated in the second battle. Most people would haTe thought that a pretty good day's work. Not so. We had only saved ourselves, not conquered Mexico, and men's work was be fore us yet. At 8 A. M., we formed again, and General Twiggs having taken command, we started on the road to Mexico. We had hardly marched a mile before we were sharply fired upon from both sides of the road, and our right was de plored to keep the enemy in. V e soon found that we had caught up with the retreating par ty, horn the very brisk firing in tront, ana we drove them throuch the little town of San An- gelo, where they had been halting in force. About half a mile from this town we entered the suburbs of another called San Katherina, when a large party in the chnrch yard fired on the head of the column, and the balls came right among us. Our men kept rushing on their rear and cutting them down, until a dis charge of grape shot from a large piece in front drove them back to the column, in this short space of time five men were killed, ten taken prisoners, and a small color captured, which was earned the rest ot the clay. Meanwhile Gen. Worth had made a demon stration on San Antonio, where the enemy was fortified in a strong hacienda; but they retired on his approach to Gnurubusco, where the works were deemed impregnable. They con sisted of a fortified hacienda, which was sur rounded by a high and thick wall on all Rules Inside the wall was a stone building, the roof of which was flat and higher than the walls. Above all this was a stone church, still higher than the rest, and having a large steple. The wall was pierced with loop holes and so arran ged that there were two tiers of men firing at the same time. They thus had four different rangers of men firing at once, and four ranks were formed on each range and placed at such a height that they could not only overlook all the surrounding country, but at the same time they had a plunging fire upon us. Outside the hacienda, and completely commanding the av enues of approach, was a field work extending around two tides ol the worn and protected by a deep, wet ditch, and armed with seven large pieces. This hacienda is at the commence ment of the causeway leading to the western gate of the city, and had to be passed before getting on the road. About 300 yards in the mar of this work, another field work had been built where a cross meets the causeway, at a point where it crosses a river, thus forming bridge head, or tete de jxml. lias was also very strong and armed with three very large pieces oi cannon, l he works were surround ed on every side by large corn fields, which were filled with the enemy's skirmishers, so that it was difficult to make a reconnoissance It was therefore decided to make the attack iin mediately, as they were full of men and exten ded for nearly a mile on the road to the city completely covering the causeway The attack commenced about 1 P. M. Gen eral Twiggs' division attacked on the side to wnrrts whirh th.-y uproaclied the fort, 1. e. op posite the city. Gen. Worth's attacked the bridge head, which he took in about an hou and a half; while General Pillow and Quitman were on the'extreme left, between the cause way and i wires division, ine lUiies were on the left and in the rear of the work, entrus ted by Gen. Scott with the task of charging the work in case Gen. Pierce rave way. TheJ firing was tremenduous in fact one continued roll while the combat lasted. Ihe enemy, from their elevated position, could readily see our men, who were unable to get a clear view from their position. Three of the pieces were manned by "the Deserters," a body of about 100, who had deserted trom our army durin the war. They were enrolled in two compa nies, commanded by a deserter, and were better uniformed and disciplined than the rest of the army. These men fought most despcrately.and are said not only to have shutdown several of our officers, whom thev knew, but to have mil led down the white flag of surrender no less than three times. The battle raged most furiously for about three hours, when both sides having lost agreat many, the enemy began to give way. As soon as they commenced retreating, Kearney squadron passed through the tetc de pont, and charging through the retreating column, pursu ed them to the very gate of the city. As they cot within about 500 vards of the rate, thev we.e opened upon with grape and canister, and several omcers wounded. Amongst the num ber was Capt. Kearney, 1st dragoons, who lost his left arm above the elbow. Lt. Graham, of New York, received a severe flesh wound in his left ami, CrtL WRpvM- bonti, anrt, IrnTn, apt, llminrt. JLc.

There is no doubt, but the rumor is true that the "foreign legion," all deserters from the American army, captur ed at Lhurubusco, have been tried by court- martial and hanged. We feel but one senti ment in this matter, and that is of the justice of their doom. By all the laws of war, by all considerations of salety to an army, the desert er merits death. He goes into the ranks know ing his late it he turns recreant, and all order ana security depends upon meting out to him, wherever he is found, the severest punishment, But this "foreign legion" were more than de serters. They were men who had sworn alle eiance to the united states wno naa taken their solemn oaths to uetend her and entered into her armies to help her wage her wars. n an enemy s country, they lied Irom the flag they had sworn to defend, they became deser ?.r .i i i a il:. ters, more lniamous man cowtuus uui iuis was not all, they joined the enemy against whom they had enlisted, and in solid column turned their weapons ol death against their brothers and their country. Miserable men they were taken with those bloody weapons in their hands. What should be their fate? Read the articles of war and then look on that gallant American army, worn down by fatigue, sickness, and battle, and say u these seventy two wretches were entitled to life. They had forfeited every consideration of mercy. We care not what country they came from, they had disgraced name and country, and cast an imperishable stigma on their km. J. hey were fairly tried. There could be no palliation of their guilt, ihey had not been abused, de ceived, nor seduced into desertion, but of their own will they had dared the doom of the hal ter. lhatgallant little American army watch ed the tents of the court with hearts full of in dignation. They saw where justice hung her balance, still they reared that sympathy might defeat her, and then, where was the safety of a single soldier in Mexico? il these deserters escaped what infection might the example have upon the wavering in our camps. JJut justice asserted herselt. ri irly tried and condemned the "Foreign Legion ' were hanged! Thus has ended the career of Riley and his seventy-one followers in baseness and crimo. INo good cit izen or man of any country will mourn their death, though every one may exclaim, "God have mercy on their souls. J. i. oun. C3rrevious to the invasion of Mexico, by order of the President, the Government of that country agreed to receive a commissioner to settle questions of boundary arising from the annexation of Texas. The President refused to send a Commissioner, but sent a Minister. Af ter prosecuting the war for more than a year he senf'Senor Don Nicholas P. Trist,' (whose only merit consists in his being the husband of a niece of Thomas Jefferson) Commissioner to treat with Mexico. Why did he not send a Commission in the first instance? Ind. State Journal. over all his battles, and with his positions all marked on ihe map, were then looking for further tidincs. They had seen and appre ciated all his difficulties at Buena Vista. In russia war is a science, mid according to the leading policy ol Europe, to be always ready (or war, every male in Prussia, the highest nobleman s son not excepted, is com pelled to serve his regular teim in the army. n the teeih of all settled opinions, and as it were upsetting the whole doctriue ot stand ing armies, General Taylor, with a handfull of regulars, and a small body of volunteers who had never beon in battlo, had stood up for a whole day against a murderous fire, and had finally defeated four times his number. Field Marshalls and Generals of Prussia, anions them veterans who had studied the artjof war on the great battlefields of Europe, wore struck with admiration at the daring and skill displayed at Buena Vista; and this ad miration. Baron Humboldt said, they express ed without reserve, freely, publicly, and ev- erywhere. Amid the bitterness and malig nity of the English press, it wa9 grateful to hear from such Hps, that the leading mili tary men ot a imliatary nation did justice tolhe courage, skill, and high military talents of Gen. Taylor; while Baron Hurrboldis com ments upon his despatches aud orders, and in fact upon all that rleated to him personally in the condnct of the war, were such as no American could listen to without feeling proud.

Thus ended the Battle of Churultusco. one of the most furious and deadly for its length; of any in the war. t or reasons which he deemed conclusive, Gen. Scott did not enter the city that night, but encamped on the battle field 4 miles from the western gate of the city. The next day a flag of truce came out, and propo sitions were made which resulted in an armis tice. Meanwhile the army is encamped in the vil lages around the city, recruiting lrom their fa tieue and nursing the sick and wounded. There are but few sick, and the wounded are getting along comfortably in their hospital A Curiositt.

Baron Humboldt's Onxio.xs of General Taylor's Victories. Mr. Stephens, the gieat American traveller, who is now or was recently in Prussia, gives an interesting ac count of an interview with Baron Humboldt, the distinguished European traveller and philosopher, who is at piesent ono ofihe privy counsellors of the King of Prussia. The in terview took place in the royal palace of Potts dam, a portion of which is occupied by the Baron. Mr. Stephens gives a brief account of the conversation that ensued between iho Baron and himself, and we copy the following por tion of it. that our readers may see what the King of Prussia and the greatest of hia war riors and civillians think of ihe glorious old hero who is to be the next 'President of tho United Slates: Out of Europe, Mexico seemed to be the country which interested him most, perhaps rrom its connexion with those countries which had brought me to his acquaintance, or more probably, because it was the foundation of bis own early fame. He epoke of Mr Pres- cotfs History of the Conquest, and said that I might, when the opportunity offered, say lo that gentleman as from himself, that there was no historian of the age, in England or Germany, equal to him. And he was keenly alive to the present condition of Mexico; ho was full of our Mex ican war; his eyes were upon General Tay lor and the American army. I was well aware, that in the conduct of this war Gen eral Taylor was drawing upon himself the eyes of all Europe, and iliut whatever might be the differences of opinion as to its necessity or justice, it was producing every where, in monarchical and anti-republican countries, a strong impression of our ability and power for war, which in enlightened (?) Europe, even iht day, more than all the fruits of peaco, industry, and extended commerce, more than the exhibition of twenty millions of people abounding in all the comtorts of life, raises us to the rank of a "first ratejpow er,"and make us "respected.''' Baron Humboldt said that with one of his own maps before them, the Kins and his military council had followed General Tay lor from his encampment at Corpus Chiisii, to Palo Alto and Kesaca do la Palma, through the storming of Monterey, and the bloody scenes of Bucna Vista. They had fought Affairs with Brazil. A Rio de Janeiro letter ot the 21ih ol August, published in the N. Y. Herald, says: The late arrival of our new minister, Mr Tod, has created quite a sensation here, not only among the American residents, but the natives. He still remains on board the Ohio, not ha vin 2 yet requested an audi ence. Our Ex-Minister, Wise, has again acted, I ihinkjvery unwisely. On applying a few days since for his passports, he enclosed documents he had received 4rom ourtgovernment appro ing of his conduct, with some very undiplo malic remarks, so much so, that tl ey were re turned with his passports, unnoticed. I regre excoedinoly this state of affiirs, and trust the course pursued bv Mr. Tod will be ouch as to Bustain tho dignity ol his own country, bu at the same time to continue the friendly in tercourse that has always existed between the two governments. Such are the feel ings expressed by both Americans and Bra zilians. You may soon expect to hear ot an American house Leinj; largely connected in the slave trade, and thus far very fortu natelv. Mr. Tod, the new minister from tho Unit ed Stales, will be presented on the 28lh inst and wo have reason to ihiuk that all tho ox istinc difficulties between the two govern ments will bo satisfactorily nrmnged, as there appears to bo the best disposition on the par of the government.
