returned to camp. Capt. Ferguson's

the sutler.
"They both agree in the following
particulars: That it was known at Seral

that the Mexican population was leaving
Seralvo in great haste, under the appre

a day or two; that it was the impression
among the officers of the Army that the
road would be disputed all the way frc-m
Seralvo to Monterey. They also, say
they met Gen Taylor about six leagues
beyond Micr, pushing on to Seralvo, at
three o'clock in the morning. He select

as thus:
"We feel it absolutely necessary, from

upon the Government to take immediate
and decisive steps to satisfy the clamors
of a starving people. Provisions are ri

there are very little indsrd in market,

more to be said in favor of the landlords
seems to be as unsatisfactory as any of

following is from the Erne Packet:
"On Wednesday, the 9th inst., about
1000 of the laboring peasantry entered
the village of Newtownbutler, and having
proceeded to the police barrack, called for
the constable in charge of that station, to
whom they rtated that they and their fa
milies were perishing for lack cf food
that they had hitherto wailed patiently in
hopes something would be done for their
relief by the neighboring gentry; but no
measure having been adopted to give
them employment, and thereby save them
from starvation, their only alternative was
to take by force what they could not oth
erwise obtain. The constable remonstra
ted with them on the evil consequences
that would attend a violation of the law,
and told them that Lord Erne was on that
day gone to Enniskillen to hold a meeting
for the purpose of adopting immediate
measures for their relief, upon which
thev all returned peaceably to their re-
spective places of abode.

Saxta Fe, August 25, 1816.
Gextlemex : As the movements of this
army may not be uninteresting, you shall
have a few of the facts in relation to our
operations. On the 2d instant we left
Bent's For, and, in thirteen days arrived
at the first Mexican settlements. Our
march for the first tea days was very
fatiguing to the men and destructive to
the horses. For several days we march
ed over a country which may propriety
be called a desert. Not a green blade of
grass did we see for more than fifty miles,
and a paTt of the distance none but brack
ish water. It was not until we crossed
the first mountain, (the Rattone,) and
slruek the head-waters of the Canadian,
that we could see our way clearly before
us. Here we found good waters, and
tolerable grass. We heard very little of
the intentions of the Mexicans, whether
for peace or war, until we reached the
"Moro." At this place an American met
us, who had been sent by some traders
livintr m Santa Fe to inform Gen. Kear
ney that Gov. Armijo was at the head of
twelve thousand men, and would march
in a few days to meet him. The same
dav we met a lieutenant and three men,
boarinj letters from Governor Armija to
Gen. Kearney, politely requesting the so rapidly, but to
wait some time at the "Moro." To this
polite request the General returned an
answer that in four days he would be in
Santa Fe, and that lie hoped the Govern
or and himself would meet as friends.
At night we encamped at the village of'
Vegas a village containing about five ;
hunureu inhabitants. 1 hey uul not seem
at all surprised at our arrival, but came to
meet us, the Alcalde
to the
in the
Genera!,"! am glad to see
country capable of governing it
i i t
we encamnea, they brought us such
marketing as the country afforded. From
the appearance of the people and the cor
dial reception they , gave us, many were
induced to believe there would be no
fighting. Their notions were changed
in the morning; for at night it had been
reported to the General that the Mexicans
were occupying a "mountain pass" two
miles in our front. Of course, all pre
parations were made for a battle. About
9 o'clock we'reached the mouth of the
"pass," which was so narrow as to ad
mit us only iour abreast. 1 he signal to
"trot" was sounded, and on we dashed in
the most enthusiastic manner. Alas! dis
appointment awaited us, for uot a sign of
the enemy was visable.
Our march for ten miles further was
over just such a country as our enemy
should have chosen to meet us in a
country heavily timbered with scrubby
pieces, and through two "passes" beauti
fully adapted for defence. We kept in
high spirits, in anticipation of a fight,
until within a day and a half of Santa Fe.
Here we met soma Mexicans, bringing
the news of Governor Armijo's retreat to
the south, with all the regulars and ord
nance. It was now clear that we had
nothing to do but march into Santa Fe
and take possession. The only sign we
saw of resistance (and it was a sign only)
was a barrier across the road in a cannon,
between our camp, on the "Rio Pecos,"
and Santa Fe. This slight barrier was
formed by placing some trees in the road.
The natural advantages of the ground at
this place could not be surpassed, and,
had they had five hundred well-armed and
determined men, they could have prevent

The General immediately established
himself in the Governor's house, and
hoisted onr flag, amidst the salute of Oic
artillery and the cheers cf the troops. On
the following morning Gen. Kearney as
sembled the citizens in front of his house
and addressed them to the eflect that "he
had been ordered amongst them by his
Governmet, to take Tpossession of the
capital of the Province, he now proclaim
edall that portion of country cast of the j
Kio Lrande a part of the Lulled States,
and that all persons within these limits t

to remain tinder our laws could go where
they pleased- the road was free for
them." He further told them he would
protect all good citizens in their persons,
property and religion; dwelling a
long time on the subject of their religion
assuring them that our laws allowed eve
ry man to worship God according lo the
dictates of his own conscience. lie
then turned to the acting Governor of the
Province and the three Alcaldes of the
city, and asked them if they were willing
to lake the oath of allegiance. They an
swered in the affirmative. After adminis
tering the oath, he told them to continue
in all the exercise of their duties as be
fore. In conclusion,- he advised the citi
zens to go to their homes, and continue
their usual pursuits', assuring protection to
all who followed this advice. Gen. Kear

commission'entrusted to him, has proved iitr in 9nnin!ihpd soldier

' As we may now call this country a
part of the United States; it may be well
to inquire what advantage is likely to
accrue to the United States. If any ad
vantage it is not revealed to us short sight
ed mortal now 'in "the country; for
of all the country we have passed over,
there is not one acre in a million suscep
tible of cultivation. Only the narrow
strips of land in the river bottoms can be
cultivated, and these only by irrigation.
The country can scarcely be made to pro
duce enough for the subsistence of its in
habitants, As to horses, they have to de
pend entirely upon pasturage. Vve have
not been able to get one grain of corn for
our horses. The whole province could
not turn out a huudred bushels at this
time. The Mexicans have an immense
number of sheep and goats, and these
flocks constitute their whole wealth, and
on them they chiefly depend for snbsit
enee. The people are about as far ad
vanced in civilization as the Cherokees;
perhaps the proportion who can read and
write is not so great.
We found here nine pieces of cannon,
and among them the piece taken from the
Texans, under Col. McLcod.
Gen. Kearney, with 800 men, will
march the last of this week into the south
ern part of tlie province. After his re
turn he will commence fitting out his ex
pedition Tor California. The number of
men he will take with him is not known.
The march to California will be as ardu
ous a one as was ever undertaken. on
can judge, when there is one reach of
ninety miles without grass or water. If
itcan be done, Gen. Kearney is the man,
of all others, who can do it.

The same opinion as to the sterillity of
the land expressed by our own corres
pondent, in the letter published in our
Correspondence of the St. Louis Uiiion,
Sata Fe, August 22, 184G.
We arrived here on the 18:h instant,
and took possession without resistance.
We are all doing well, we have had three
or four days' rest, and are beginning to
want something to do. On Monday
next we will commence the erection of a
fort at this place: a beautiful selection has
been made, and I have no doubt one will
bo constructed that will astonish the na
tives. I confess I do not see the import
ance of this fortification. In my opinion
the whole country, from the Crossing of
the Arkansas to this place, is not worth
what it has cost the Government to march
the troops here.No man who has not visit
ed this rej ion can form any idea of the
character of the country. Never has a
nation been so completely humbugged
about any thing as the United States have
been about this province. I am candid
ly of the opinion that Gen. Kearney
would do his country much service by
abandoning the expedition and returning
to the United States. I am fully persua
ded that, if the President and Congress
knew as much about the state of tilings
here as we do. no effort would have been
made to acquire it. I have discovered
that every man we have met or seen since
wc lcaft the Sates has exaggerated the ac
counts of this country. It appears that
there is something in the atmosphere that
creates a propensity to lie. 1 would
therefore advise you to pay no attention
to what vou may learn from those who
have visited this city or iho mountains.
Defore we reached here there were two
places where we expected to figet. There
were gaps in the mountains where five
hundred well-disciplined troops could
have successfully resisted five thoucand;
yet no effort was made to stop us. The
last place where we expected the enemy
we discovered that some preparations
had been made for defencp, but, in con
sequence of the dissatisfaction amongst
the troops of Armijo, the whole had been
abandoned. Armijo left the city about
Ihirty-six hours before our arrival, and
has been moving towards the sou ill with
alidispaich eve since. ' He sent Gen.
Kearney a letter stating that he would
return on the 21st; this was only used as
a means to prevent pursuit. Ail the pub
lic property of any value was removed
before we arrived. The citizens here are

seemed disposed to submit cheerfully to

our government at tnc several lowns
through which we passed. At St. Jose,

them to promise allegiance to the United

ministered oaths to the different alcaldes.

From all wc can learn, we should judge
that the present has been the most sickly
season throughout the whole West since
1838. The continued pcrvalenee of hot
and dry weather, acting upon the marshes
and swamps whers they exist, necessarily
exhales a nuisance, which creates disease
wherever it can reach.
In Illinois, especially, has sickness gau
erally prevailed. The diseases are scarce
ly ever fatal. Whole neighborhoods are
frequently so disabled that there arc not
enough well ones to take care of the sick.
In many localities, during the present sea
son, the crops have remained unitarvested
from the prostration of the farmers, and
their inability to procure assistance. In
fact there has been throughout the whole
country, at the E:tst as well as at the
West, an unusual amount of sickness du
ring the present season. The number of
deaths in our large cities is much larger
than heretofore. Buffalo Courier.
IdA Cincinnati paper says that drag
ging for dead bodies is sometimes unsuc
cessful, but a curious discovery has been
lately made in that place. A child of six
years was drowned in ihi canal, and a
long time was lost in dragging for the bo
dy without success, A young woman
recommended them to utt a loaf of bread
and put some quicksilver in it, averring
that it would float to the body. The
bread thus prepared floated to a distance,
remained stationary after turning round
several times, and beneath the spot occu
pied by the loaf the child was found.
We learn from the Cincinnati Times,

barracks have boen ordered to proceed

The Charleston Courier publishes the
following: "Two table spoor s ubf ashrs
in one pint of boiling water, to which, af

of table salt, a piece of alum and one of

juice of three limes, or a little vinegar or
orange juice, all sweetened with honey,
and when cold, imrgle the throat every
three hours. This remedy has been fre
