Sir-4 have the honbt to repo`rt that the
troops of my cotinnand occupied their Original
camp at this plate on the 27th of their,
the lust/ of the Mexican- Army. leaving,,the
morning of 01(4 day in the direction of,, San

the men deserting and dying of ttarvation in
great numbers. • 1 despatch a.cotnmaint this
day as far'as-Encarnation to harrass his rear
anti .emire whatever military supplies may be
foumi there.
' - From the statement of Mexican officers,
yartieularly °f l ae medical staff left 'to sec
cor the wounded, there seems no doubt that
heir loss in tI e recent action is moderately
I•timatettat 1500, and-may reach .2000 ; men,
tilled and wounded: besides 2000 or 300 de
serters. ,N. 41 6, officers of rank Were loq. I

and Wounded, made is complete as' practica
ble at this time. Ode regiment:(Kentncky.
cavalry) is not included, its return not being
rerulentd. , ' ' . i' ,
The enemy had fully .reckoned upon our to
tal rout, and had'inade arrangements to inter
cept our retreat, stationing: for that pitrPose
corps *of cavalry not only imtnediately in our
rear, but even below Monterey. I regret td
report! that they imucceeJed near the village
of Marin in destroying aitrain of supplies and
killing a considerable numher of the escort
and teamsters.• Col. Morgan, 2d Ohio regi - -
mem, on his march front Cerralvo to ;Monte
rey, was infested I . )i the Mexican cavalry,
with which he had' several rencontres; but
finally dispersed them( with small loss on his
own part: Cape. Graham, A. 'Q. M., volun
teer service, was mortally wounded in one of
these affairs: I have no doubt that the de
feat of the main army at Buena Vista will se
cure our line of communication From
interruption, but r still propose in a fekv - days
to change - my head-quarters to Monterey,
with a view 30. make such further arrange
ments as may be hecelisary in hat quarter. ~ •
• The digpositions made tomiss our rear,
vindicate the policy kind ne t s.-it . ykif defend
ing a pcisition in front of SaltillO, where a de
feat has thrown the eneyny'far back into the
inkerior. No result so decisive could have
been obtained by holding Monterey, and our
,kvould have been constantly
in jeopardy.

•WeN. O. Picayune-of the 24th contains
the following letter, writen to a Mexican mer
chant residing in Matiniorus, who received it
from another - Nfoxican in ,Saltillo an I gives the
only ace - bunt yet 'publishea, of the matter in
which the last battle was fought. , -•
A 3 o'clock on Oise 24.1 ult., the battle com
menced at Buena Vistaive miles from Sahli.,
In. • The fight od opfined with,artillery,"•and 'a
destructive cannonade was kept openuntil sun
set. No decided advantage was obtained hy
either, i-idc—the hiss on both being very great.
On the 23)4 at 'lO o'cloek, the battle was
again renewed and kept tip without 'intermis
sion untp half past three in the afteimoon.
13vth amities ware closely. engaged during the
whop time. Gmeral Wool a Ivanced wt th a
strong detachment again4t the Mexican army,
but was driven back with immence loss. the
MeXican cavalry charged upon him with drawn
sWords,and did greet execui ion. As Woollen
I fr
back Taub). advanced advanced tvin free(: € l . ops and
'repulsed ere direzienns wits grails anghter!
This charge (loaded the battle, whit I was not
again renewed. The number kille& and
wounded was very great on both sides. I can
only et‘tirpnte the number by the cart loads
•of %roan lei that hoe entered this city from
both bit-tic fields.'-.I
On the. 24th both arm'es hung oIT without
cOming to ti general engagement—each occu
pied in carrying of the wounded and burying
their dead. -
" After tlie 21th there was no more fixit*,—
the -Alexi* troops famishin g with hutiger'be
ca me convinced that then could not triumph
or drive Gen. Tdylor froM his position, and
retire.] ; "• r
As Yet Santa Anna has Only. retired &short
distantloi k bou I do not entertain - the belief that
he •will vAirttre another engagement.
Merco has not the, means to bear , the bur
den O . the war; it is opposing poverty,to shun
dance to strength. In my, opinion
it ‘v,oild he hest for the tw,V•Gifvernments to
enter into negotiations. With the power the
U.States poAsess, it would bees _dishonorable
in her to force us into treaties advantageous
abine to herself, a.- it Nvould Oe for us to make
conceiion from necessity.

• .
I Resolved,' That in klufs'opinion of this m ee-
Ang the convention proposed to he held at
Chicago, Illinois, to take into coniiderat on
the subject S of ' , Harbor and other impr ye:.
Mentes, fur :nations,' purifoscs, is highly c in
mendable, and 'worthy the atte f utiou of of
whole country. -- ,
That national funds cannot• be more benefi
cially employed - than in furthering a system-,
' whith included within it the milling of har
' hors to shield, protect and encourage a corn
' coerce in which every State in the Union is.
'directly or indirectly interested, and which, in
a peculiar manner, in a country-so wide-spread
in itsdompinii - rid ao various in its productions
as this is, is we' l l calculated to bring' togeth
er, through the perations of trade and ex
change, its widely separated citizens; and the
opening up of avenues of travel and intercoini
munication; for Purposes of business or social
'intercourse, thus, makes us more accurately
acquainted with each other's ‘ true chant,
and condition, increasing our 'nntual .in -
est, and strengthening' our determination and
desire to perpetuate our common government.
That , consideriug the. Powerful influence
which a Conveinion l —such as that proposed
to be held at 'Chicago, composed of represen
tatives from so large an e i xtent of country,
combining talent of the *hest order, With
'the most ample experience in the operations
of the trade and commerce of the country, as
well as familiarity with the nature and prin-,
ciplin of our government 7 -4s. calculated to
have upon the action and policy of a 'goverh-
- ment, which like ours, ought - to be but the
