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

Hanging Deserters. 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.

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

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

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

only merit consists in his being the husband of
a niece of Thomas Jefferson) Commissioner to

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.

wounded at 1 150, besides officers. The Mexi
can loss is 500 killed in the second battle, 100
wounded, and 1100 prisoners, exclusive of of
ficers. Three more generals were taken, among
them Gen. Rincon and Anaya, the provisional
President; alo 15 pieces of cannon, and an im
mense amount of amunition and stores. San
ta Anna in his report, statea his loss in killed
wounded and missing, at 12,000. He has only
18,000 left out of 30,000, which he gives as his
force on the 20th in both actions.
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

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.
