On the breaking cut of hostilities in
Florida Captain Page was in Washington,

closing the war in Florida by thc usual
process of hostile operations, determined

view, selected CaDt. IV'e. from hi
knowledge of Indian character, and con
sentient fitness for the enterprise, to pro
ceed to the Semiuole country, west of
Fort Gibson, and pre veil upon as many
of the most influential of the nation as in
his judgment might be necessary to aid in
the pacification of their hostile brethren,
lie succeeded, and with his fricudly dele
gation repaired to thc seat of war and re
ported to Gan. Armtslead. With this
delegation he operated, and in a very short j
time brought about the surrender of sev
err.l hundred of the Indians.
He left Florida in May, 1841, with
Gen. Armisiead, but returned early in the
fail of the next year, and remained in the
field of duty with his regiment until thc
termination of the war by Gen Worth m
1812. His regiment was then relieved
from dnty in Florida, and he accompanied
it to JefiVrson Barracks, Missouri; where
li? was permitted to repose for a time,
blessed with the society of his wife and
children. Rut this period of happiness
was brief, and the last he enjoyed on
earth. In May, 181 J, his regiment was
ordered to Natchitoches, Louisiana, being
rn clement of the force ibilined fur thc
frontier of Texas, pending the proposi
tion to annex that Republic, as a stale, to
the American Union.
In this movement Capt. Page accom

considered uccesssry to hold, as the ene
my had permanently abandoned the city
and its defences, except the main plaza,

the Bishop's Palace the west side of thc
city, and succeeded in driving the enemy

than the American commander would ua-i
dcr any circumstances grant. At ihe
same time a demand to surrender was in
reply made upon Gen. Arapudia. Twelve
o'clock was the hour at which the accejW
tance or non-acceptance was to be com
municated to the American General. At
11 A M. the Mexican General sent, re
questing a personal conference with Gen.
Taylor, which was granted; the principal
officers of rank on either side accompany
ing their Generals. After several offers
in relation to the capitulation of the city
made on cither side, and refused, at half
patt 4P..M. Gen. Taylor rose, and,
saying he woutd give Gen. Ampnuia or.3
hour to consider and cocept or refuse, left
the conference with his officers. At the
expiration of the hour the discharge ot the
mortar was to be the signal for tho rc
rrmmencement of hostilities. Before
the expiration of the hour, however,
an officer was pent on thc part of
Gen. Atnpudia to inform the American
General that, to avoid the further effusion
of blood, and the national honor being
sitisfied by the exertions of the Mexican
troops, he had, after consultation with his
General Officers, decided to capitulate,
accepting the ofTer of the American Gen
eral. . ' ' '
The terms of capitulation were in ef
fect as follows:
That the officer? should be allowed to
march out with their side arms.
That the cavalry and infantry should
be allowed to march out with their arms
That the artillery should be allowed to
inarch out with one battery of six pieces
and twenty rounds of ammunition.
, That all the munitions of war and sup
plies should be turned over to aboard of
American -officers appointed to receive
That the Mexican army should be al
lowed seven days lo evacuate thc city,
and that the American troops should not
occupy it until evacuated.
That the Cathedral Fort, or Citidal,
should be evacuated at 10 A. M. next day,
(25th,) the Mexicans then marching
out and thc American garrison marching
in. The Mexicans allowed to salute their
flag when hauled down.
That there should be an armistice of
eirht weeks, during which lime neither
army should pass a line running from the
Rinconada through Linares and San Fer
nando. Tli is lenient offer of the American Gen
eral was dictated with thc concurrence of
his Generals, and by motives of good pol
icy and consideration for ihe good defence
of their city by the Mexican army.

FLAME ENCIRCLED OVEN
PHIS Stove combines all that is val
S liable in existing Cooking Stoves
with certain improvements peculiar to
itself. It is constructed upon a new and
entirely distinct principle truly philo
sophical, so as lo pass the flue entirely
round the oven, ihus making it enveloped
or JIame encircled, without impairing ihe
necessary draught of the stove. This
method of thus passing twice round,
once over and once under the oven, is the
secret of its great economy ia the use of
fuel, while the enlargement of thc air
chamber affords increased space for the
rarefaction of air and compensates for
the usual disadvantages of a circular
draught, It bakes, loasis, and boils,
easier and belter than any Stove yet of
fered to the public, with ihe advantage
over most of them of saving one half the
fuel. It is superior to the '"Q ieen of
the West," -Buck's Patent," "Eclipse"
or Ibtbaways Patent," for thc follow
ing reasons: In these Stoves the upper
side of the oven is dependant for beat
and can have from no other source than
what radiates through the plate on which
the fire is made, if the ashes be lifted
clean, too much, beat will radiate and
burn the bread on the upper
side, if too much ashes be left, the bread
will not bake on the upper side. Of this
defect jsli good cooks complain. This
Stove is entirely free of this objection,
the oven always heating exactly alike
top and bottom,' and ends. -Many buy
ihe Premium or step stove and others of
similar model. These Stoves consume
much fuel, for first thc fire chamber is
too deep, ihe ptts &c, are too high a
bote ihe fire. - Second when using the
oven, all the heat which passes cfi under
the oven being one h!f, never comes in
contact wiihlhe boiling utensils. passesofT
into ihe pipe ami is lost. Also our Store
is so arranged with a bank or clevaiioti
in the fire chamber as to ensure the use
of ibe flame upon the forward part ' of
the Stove first, and it ihen passes back
afterward heating alike wit?rea-
Stoves like, the Hathaway, having .one
vest chamber, allow too, wide a range
