?itit Ann' letter of resignation,
xvV.Kh wo gnve on Friday last, i publish
ed ; the papers of tho 29ih ult. but we
know nothing of the action uken by Con
gress on I lie subject.- Wa also find a long
manifesto' addressed to the Wiott by him
a few Jays darlior, which we give below.
' In the city pf Mexico everything ia
manifestly in a state of ceufusion and al
most unlicensed anarchy. Gen. Bravo
fcas resigned not only his command of
gaueral-in-chief, but aUo his commission
as jrenural of division. ' Go a. Ri neon is
said to have done the same thing. ,
It is true that Gen. Almonte is Under
arrest, though the causes of his im
prisonmeut are not avowed, lie is con
fined" in Santiago Tlnltelolco.
Gen. Ampudia has boen directed to
await further ordera at Cuernuvaca.
What suspicions thing' he has done or
contemplated we are not informed. "
Tho accounts we find in the Mexican
papers of the disaffection in Zacatecas
confirm those we pubHshod a few days
aince. The official paper of the State
publishes every representation made a
gainst Santa Anna and in fmvorof the
Americans Gen. Scott's manifesto a

is also given in all the papers of tho cup-
The Legislature of Durango votod for
Senor D. Francisco Elluriajfa for Presi
dent. Upon Uio first ballot Elloringa re
ceived 7 voles, Santa Anna 4,IIerrera 1,
Pedrazs 1, and Angel Trius 1. Upon
the second ballot, Elloiiuga received 8
votes and Santa Anna G. EUoriaga was
the former Governor of the State, and it
will be recollected rati Santa Anna hard
for the Provisional Presidency in the last
election by Congress.
The State of Tamau'iipas has voted for
Gen. Almonte for the Presidency, ntid
Zacatecas forSenor Jose Maria Lafragua,
The Legislature of Oajacu (which has
been denounced by the revolutionary
paity in that Slate) voted for Gen. Her
era. The new legislature voted for
Gen. Santa Anna for President.
If this last vote bo allowed to General
Ileiroru, the result of the election so far
will stand thus Gen. Ilerruia 4 votes,
Angel Trias 3 votes, SenorOcampe 1 vote
Senor EUoriaga I vote, Gen. Almonte 1
vote, and Senor Lafragua I vote. Give
the vote of Qui oca to Gen, Santa Anna
and you have the seventh candidate for
the unenviable stutiun of President of
. W'e have seen a lettoi from one of the
American officers now a prisoner in Mex
ico. It was dated May 23., He had been
promised hie liberty again and oguin, but
expected to be reloaded on the 30th be
yond a doubt. He wiiton that General
Scott was expected to enter iho capital
within eight days, and lie did not antici
pate that any formiJdble opposition Would
be made to him.
Whilst exercising supreme power,
Santa Anna on the 22d ult., directod that
rvery prosecution against military per
sons should bo discontinued, and all ac
cused vf offences be at once set at largo.
The services of such men are thought to
be of sufficient importanco to the Govern
ment to justify this clemency. It looks
to like an attempt of Santa Anna to
strengthen himself with the soldiery.
Senor Pnchcro was named Minister of
Justice on the 27 th ult.
To F.I Hannblicatiii of the 29th ult..
there is an article upon the dofence of tho
capital and the propriety of removing the
seat of Government into the interior.
The editor uigoa upon the authorities to
defend the capital to extremites, and says
that the work ot erecting tortincnlioiis is
going on actively. lint this part of the
article is not in its usual bold strain. From
the tone of it, and from private letters
from the capital which we have seen, we
feel persuaded thai little opposition to
Gen. Scott's entrance into the city will bo
made. El Republirano urgos strenu
ously that (he seat of Government should
ut once be transferred. Then, should
the cipital full, it urges, the Government
will still exist and form n cotitre of union
and a rallying point. The editor urges
the point with such force thut we are
persuaded ho anticipated' no formidable
opposition to Gon. Scott's advance.
' In en early article upon the subject of
the defence ol the capital, LI Uepublica
do sets down the troops avuilablo for tho
purpose as follows: Tho garrison then in
the capital (the 26th of May) was not fur
from 10,000 men, while there were to ar
rive, says the editor, from the State of
Guanajuato 3,000, from the South of
Mexico 3,000 from Michoncon 2,000, and
from Kuerelaro 1,009. We infer from al
lusion made tothe article in El Kazonailor
thut the latter poper ridicules tho idea of
making any defence of the ci'y.
We 3ee nothing in the papers nhnut the
formidable works said to be going on at
Rio Frio. We are incliued to tho opin
iou that the resistance anticipated at this
Joint hss been ranch exoggoratod. The
lexicon papers which we have soen sny
nothing about it, and speak only of the
fortification in the immediate vicinity of
the capital. To the aume effect is the
letter from Mr. Kendall which we givo
to-day. " It is mentioned in the papers of
the capital that an advance party ut Uen.
Worth had reconnoitered the road as far
as Rio Frio.'
The resignation of Gons, Hravo and
Hiucoii were induced by an order of the
Government bestowing their command
upon uen, L,omDuriiint during their in
disposition. The latter general is not
celebrated .or genius. Uen. mavoslet
ter to toe Government breathes a fine
spirit. The only title he retains is that
which the people formerly thought him
deserving, "iscnemerito 4c la 1'atria.
We are at a loss to undorstsnd the va
rious movements amongthe military chief
thins of Mexico. We have the resigna
tions or Santa Anna, ttravn and Kincon,
and the arrest of Almonte all within the
apace of eight or ten days, and tho depar
ture of other generals to remote parts,
and Santa Anna during the time was ex
ercising full away, and extending every
indulgence to the soldiery. It looks as
though parties were marshaling their for
ces for a struggle for power among them
selves, rather than to defend their coun
try against a foreign foe,

From rt ri-iiz.luottier Attack
by 4lnerHI;8 One Hundred of
the Enemy Killed 14 Americans
Killed 40 Wounded. -
The steamer. Galveston has arrived
at New Orleans with 150 discharged
Volunteers, on their way home, and a
number of passengers.
By this arrival we learn that seventy
armed men were attacked by a band of
Guerillas, on their way to Vera Cruz
from Puebla. Notwithstanding tho as-
saih'ug party was large, the whole force
arrived safely at Vera Cruz with a loss of
only six men.-:
A number of Proiiuiir uiinonroa have
been issued from the city of Mexico, and
a good portion ot tho Uapital lias declar
ed against Santa Anni.
Santa Anna has again sent in his tes
ignalion which, however, was not ac
cepted. '
Capt. Walker, with his brigade of
horse, armed to the teeth, and as much
feared as Texan Hungers, was in pursuit
of the Guerilla troops, and committing
havoc among them by way of retaliation.
On tho day Cpt. Bainbridge left Mc
intosh's camp, Gen. Cad wallader arrived
with a force of 800 men and two howit
zers. The two commands were then united,
making in all about 1600 men with two
howitzers, under the command of Gen.
Cadwulluder, and pushed on towards the
National Bridge.
Gen. C. immediately occupied tho
hoights commanding tho bridge, from
which the Mexicans had fired on Captain
Here he was attacked by thn enotny in
strong force, posted on tho ridges and in
the Chapperal.
A sharp and well contented action en
sued, lasting for several hours, when tho
Mexicans were finally repulsed.
The Mexican loss in this affair was
auoui one uunareu. uen. uauwalader
lost 15 killed and 30 or 40 wounded.
After the retreat of tho Mexicans, Gon,
Cadwallader passed the bridge ond pur
sued his way to Jalnpa.
Tho heights wore then chnrgnd and the
enemy driven in confusion to the right
and left of the Road.
After Cadwallader had passed the
bridge, ho was attacked by a largo force
of Guerillas, who hung upon his rear for
some considerublo distance.
During tho fight, Lieut. Blakely of the
newly raised voluuLoers, charged tho bar
ricades, sweeping them with two howit
zers. In passing through, howover, Lieut.
B's. command received u heavy volley
from the enemy on tho ridge, sustaining
a loss of one killed and four wounded
Lieut, B. wns himsolf wounded in the log.
Several horsos were ulso killed.
Gon. Cadwallader was moving steadily
forward, the only way to confront the
Captain Gales and his company of the
Third Dragoons, boing sent by General
Cadwallader to the rear, to reinforce the
train guard, was attacked by a large force
of lancers. Thoso, however they repuls
ed, after a aharp contest, inflicting on
them considerable loss.
There is much sickness in Voia Cruz,
but very little in the castle.
The Garrison at Jalapa had been brok
up by osdor of Gen. Scott, and the sick
and prisoners sent to Perote. This lino
of communication is, thorefure, entirely
clear of troops.
Gen. Scott has had a road constructed
from Jalapa, by which.in future, all troops
and stores will be seen.
The success of tho attack an Col. Mc
intosh has given great encouragement to
the Guurillus, who oro swarming tho
country in great numbers and attacking
all parties, grout and small,
About ono thouxuiid troops were en
camped at Vera Cruz.
Gen. Shields was at Vera Cruz, prepar
ing to leave for tlio United States, when
he received orders from Gen. ScoLt to
join him at Puebla.
There are no preparation!, mnking for
defending any point between Puebla and
the Capital.
All the odds und ends of the Mexican
army numbering about 20,000 nion.are
collected in the Capital. They are poor
ly arme l, and their equipments are of
tho most miserable description,
Gen. Bravo was in command of the
troops at Mexico.
A letter has been received at Vera
Cruz on the 15th inst, stating that Gen
Scott had ordered the removal of the
Government from Vera Cruz to Tuspan.
This change was made on account of
tho sickness at Vera Cruz, and the difi-
culty of keeping open its communications
will) head quurteis.
The communications between Tuspan
and Puebla could be much more easily

Scott hud proceeded to Rio Frio and that

Hail Itana.
We arc glad to learn that the Farmers
of the county, those most deoply inter
ested, are beginning to wake up to tho
importance and benefits of rail-road
communication. Whon they say the
word and are willing to contribute, a
road, either to Newark or Columbus, can
easily bo constructed. They have ample
means and as soon as they are convinced
that they will bo doubly repaid for any
outlay they may make, wo are certain
they will take hold of the matter in car
nest and conclude to assist in making the
road. The additional price of all kinds
of grain, of hogs, of cffttle, which they
will receive, when dealers in those ar
ticles can find speedy and certain means
of transportation, not to say anything of
the increaso in the vnlno of Real Estate,
will induco thorn to part with alittlo now
that they may, in tho end, gain largely.
Furmers, luuk at those things. If the
advantages of a rail road aro properly
understood and appreciated, wo aro con
fident that you will tuko hold of the en
terprise with a proper spirit and the
citizens of the county will no longer suf

The New Orleans Bulletin of the 18th

From a passonger on board tho Mary
ICingsland, we learn that Gen. Taylor's
headquarters wore still at Walnut
Springs, throe miles from Monterey, on
the 1st inst. His whole force consists of
about 4000 troops, of which tho larger
portion are volunteors, and when all that
ore ordered to join him have arrived, will
not have more than 6000 men which in
cludes all the garrisons in his rear on the
line of the Rio Grande. It was under
stood that he would not attempt to move
upon San Luis Potosi, unless he could
have with him, for that object alone, at
lenst 6000 efficient troops.
A Monterey lottor in the New Orleans
Picayuno, dated June 1, says
Although wo cannot advance upon
San Luis, it is thought there may be some
skirmishing on the road from hare to

courage, become tired of masterly inac

ted that he was at Tula, but tho report
was not credited; but I was yesterday in
formed at headquarters that positive in
formation had been received that Urrea
was at the head of 4000 cavalry this side

is over estimated.

Commanding" of the 1st Regiment,, has
wiitten to Gov. Bebb, "respectfully de
clining" having the resolutions published
to his regiment, because his regiment was
the only one of the Ohio - Volunteers
which had been in a regular battle, and
"no particular reference" was made in the

Gambling: In Flour, -
Few persons not dealers in the article
are probably aware of the extent to- which
gambling in flour is carried on by dealers
in Mew-ioriw Ivor instance, we fre
quently see reports in the New York pa
pers, similar tothe following: "Sales of
iiOOO barrels to arrive in July, at $7,50;
sales ot 1U.UUU barrels to arrive in Au
gust, at $7,25." We do not pretend to
say that none of these transactions are
eenuine, but we 'are confident that not
one-twentieth partchangeshands. When
the time qgmes for delivery.the Uittorence
betwoen the price agreed upon and the
current rate, is paid either by the buyer
or seller, as the case may be. It is in
fact, nothing more nor less than a bet on
iht state of the market at'a iriven time.
In some cases bets of this kind are prob
ably adopted to bolster up the market
For instance, we find in the SSevr xorx
Shipping List, tho following transaction
in flour, which took place shortly after
the arrival of the last steamer: A sale of
"1000 barrels Western, (deliverable)
within 48 hours of the arrival of the next
Steamer at $8,50." On the day this
transaction took place, good Western
flour could have been bought at $8 and
the market 'was tending downward.

ticle in which a man would wish to gam

Let lis have a Iteasou for it.
The Locofocos propose, as wo under
stand, to revolutionize the State after o
while, and get into power aain." What
for? What object have the people in put
ting them in power any more What can
they gain by it? But since they are dis
poseuto make proposalsforgoverningthe
State again, let us have the programme of
their intended government. Will they
bind themselves to redeem at par the bills
of all tho banks they broke, when in pow
er before; and all the shin-plasters they
caused to circulate by driving out a bet
ter currency Will they restore to thoir
original owners all the farms that their
measures caused to be sold under execu
tion? Will they pay back to the poor
man the money that capitalists and brok
ers made by shaving their notes If so,
let us have them back again, by all
means. O. S. Journal. '
Counterfeit Notes. We have no
ticed the circulation of counterfeits $100
notes on the Dayton Branch of the State
Bank of Ohio. Messrs. Presbury & Co.,
have just shown us one of them. As no
notes of that denomination have ever
been issued by tho Bank, the public
should not touch them at all all are
counterfeit. This and other notes were
received from Galena and Dubuque.

Great Taylor Meeting. ' At a large
and enthusiastic meeting, held in Knox
ville, Tennessee, on the 14th inst., Gen.
Taylor was nominated, with entire unan
imity, for the next Presidency. Judge
Reese delivered an able speech in sup
port of the nomination, and,he was follow
ed by Geu. Alex. Anderson, "formerly
a Democratic U. S. Senator from Tennes
seej who came out boldly in favor of Gen.
Taylor, and gave his reasons for being
desirous of seeing the old hero elevated
to tho Presidency at the next election."
The Mormon Temple. This cele
brated edifice has been sold to a commit

This community have also purchased oth
er property at Nauvoo. '1 he building is
to be appropriated to educational purpos
es, connected with the church into whose
hands it has passed. The contract re
quires only the sanction of the Bishop to
complete it. The last of the Mormons in
Nauvoo, consisting of thirty or forty fam
ilies under charge of Daniel H. Wells,
huve left Nauvoo to join the California
expedition. Babbitt & Co. still remain
at Nauvoo, to close up the affairs of tho

The Now York Sun is erecting two
Mammoth Cylinder Presses constructed
by Hoo & Co., of that city, which will
print from 24,000 to 30,000 newspapers
per hour! The number of impress
ions would be increased if human hands
could feed the press faster. The inking
apparatus of this press is new, as the old
reciprocating movements give place to
rotary action. There is but little friction
in the now operation, and the wear and
teur is consequently greatly diminished.
The form of types in tho new plan is
placed upon a largo cylinder four feet or
nioro in diameter, in contact with which
smaller impression cylinders, in any do
sired number are placed. This Press,
the Sun says, "is destined to produce an
entire revolution in newspaper printing."
