volunteers and regular troops equal to those

from their own countrr, self-dependent and
self-sustained. Armies were, dispersed or
overthrown before our gallant countrymen;
fortresses fell at their approach or attack,
and the capture of the capital terminated the
campaign, and in fact placed the nation' at
iur mercy. One incident which marked
these splendid efforts gives them , a deep
interest and a romantic character, which we
may seek in vain in the records of national
contests. ' For many days our adventurbus
army was lost to their countrymen and to the
world. Relying upon the gallantry and sup
eriority of his troops, the general adopted
the hardy measure wise, as it proved by
its success, but rash as it would have been
denounced had it failed of abandoning4 his
communications with the coast,: and there
fore, with his country, and of committing the
fate of his! army Ito a forward movment . i nto
the heart of the enemy's territory and to a
vigorous attack upon the capital. We all
remembcf with what anxiety, this decisive
movement was regarded, and how;wc. wait

conflict 'and shrouded from our view by the

Gen. Scott was the leader, the commander,

and their execution. And well did he ful
fill the task assigned to him. Bold and acr
live iri : his, "movements, fertile in resource,
and prompt in seizing every advantage of the

generalship which have commanded the res

ease may be but temporary,-and that , he
may be able to resume his station in the

the station which he has been compelled to

Fellow- Citizen: Soldiers:
The motives; which have created you a
corps, are both praiseworthy and honorable.
Citizens of a vast and powerful Republic:
Soldiers of the same. Not the miserable
hireling soldier, .who crouches at - (he beck
and nod of despotic tyranny. Not the hire
ling soldier that to-day shouts "vive 'la' e-

ettr" but the citizen volunteer, high mind
ed, honorable and, brave, "always, ready "
at a moment's warning, to do or die.
Your martial appearance brings lo mind
reminiscences glorious to you, and which
inspires me with pride to mention. Only a
few years since, at the first blast of the bugle
you sprang into line, and rushed the res
cue." Monterey drank the last life, drdps of
our chivalric boys, and on the plains of
Buena Vista still bleach the bones our
gallant volunteers. Out-flanked ,and out
numbered by Santa Anna's countless hosts
you braved the battle and rushed dauntless
ly on: . ,
ifAnd now with shouts, the shocking armies
. . close, , .
To lances, Jancc?, shields, to shields oppose,
Host against host, their shadowy l.'gipns draw,
The.sounding dart, in iron tempests flew, t
Victor, and vanqyiJied, join in promiscuous
cries, .
Triumphant shouts and dying groans arise;
With "streaming blood, the slippery fields are
.; ..' dyed, . .' . . '..
And slaughtered heroes,swell the dreadful tide."
; Such scenes portrayed, are calculated to
inspire you with noblett deeds of daring and
of death. And when honor calls you to
the field, "this glittering "motto will be re-
racmbcred in your van " Always ready "!
