FORMAL ANNEXATION OF NEW MEXICO.-
Gen. Kearney, immediately on entering Santa
Fe, published a proclamation, taking formal
possession of the whole of New Mexico. on
bath sides of the Del Norte. as a part of the
United States, under the name of the territory
of New Mexico. He announces that his inten
tion is to respect the religious institutions of
the country, to protect the property at the
Church, and to cause the worship of those be
longing to it to be respected. Ile requires
those who have left their homes and taken up
arms against the troops of the United States.
to return forthwith to them, or else they will
he considered as enemies and traitors, subject
ing their persons to punishment, and their
property to seizure and confiscation, for the
benefit of the public treasury. It is the wish
and intention of the United States to provide
for New Mexico a free government with the
least possible delay, similar to those in the
United States, and the people of New Mexi
co will then be called on to exercise the rights
of freemen in electing their own Representa
tive/ to the Territorial Legislature. but until
this can be done, thelaws hitherto in existence
will be continued until changed or modified
by competent authority, and 'those persons
holding office will continue in the same for the
present, provided they consider themselves
good citizens. and willing to take the oath of
allegiance to the United States.
This is sufficiently explicit of the intentions
of our government, and shows the progress of
the work of annexation. New Mexico is now
a territory of the United States. The next

'• San Juan de Ullou.
On the termination of the war with Old
Spain, after the miserable remains of their gar
rison had been seat off to Havana. I went with
two companions over the - Castle of San Juan
de Ulloa. It is a tremendous place. if at all
well manned. No wonder it had held out e•h
long. Had it not been for the raging of the
vellbw fever within its walls, and the want of
provisions, the Mexicans would never have
taken it without a naval force very superior to
the one they then possessed. though 1114 have
never since had any force comparable to that
The outer walls of this fortress are of im
mense_thickness--upwards of twelve feet; and I
in the positions most exposed the wall are sev
enteen or eighteen feet in depth, of solid white
stone. It ia. a very porous and rather soft
stone, so that balls do not split or crack it so
much as quietly embed themselves. These
outer walls have batteries all around ; the guns
were well planted, with here and there a peel
corner for a mortar. The inner walls are so
constructed that if the outer walls are gained,
it would still be at a slaughterous expense to
the besiegers, if the garrison were at all com
petent to avail themselves of their position.
We entered the fortress from below, at the
principal gate. which was of great strength.
and very skilfully contrived, and then went
along a stone passage, which had several gate
ways and " cunningly devised" narrow passes,
with high stone avails on each side. 'Phis was
terminated by a canal or moat, with a draw
bridge over it. We next 'arrived.at flights of
stairs, and passing up several vault-like ascent.
we gained the top of the grand batteries. Their
general characteristic is that of greSt strength,
and plenty of room to work in. They moun
ted 120 long twenty-four pounders,all of brass;
they were for the most part in excellent condi
tion. The mortars were of large czlibre,though
not in such good order as the guns. The pow
der magazines were each literally a dry stone
well, plugged at the top with blankets, and
having a round metal . lid over the mouth that
opened on the batteries.
We next descended to the inner works„and
gained ilia secondary walls by a circuitous
route. Besides the necessity to the beseigers
of having guides who well knew every turn of
the works, the excitement and smoke are al
most certain to produce a confusion, in which
the voice or presence of the guides would be
lost,and the party dashing onward might only
arrive at a dead wall, a gap looking out upon
the sea, or the mouth of a twenty-four poun.
der. The circuitous route of our descent from
the upper to the lower range of walls, was en
tirely exposed to their batteries, the guns grinn
ing at us all the way, like so many black turke.
as we traversed stone courseways and narrow
passes. Whole regiments might here be rak
ed down, after they had conquered the outer
walls. But the " chances of war" are numer
ous ; and one imperfection in the greatest pow
er (if otherwise perfect) may render it inap
plicable, and perhaps ridiculcus. On arriving
at these inner batteries, we found the guns in
a wretched condition. They were no better
than a Chinese effect, "calculated" to strike
terror ihto.tlte [Lind. But one may imagine
how very angry the subtile architect of this
forniidable castle would have been, could he
have seen his excellent arrangements for the
safe and nearly certain destruction of the as
sailants, thus rendered abortive.
•We now descended a very wide and steep
flight of stone stairs. which led us down into
the grand castle square, or little town, as one
might almost call it. We entered at the bot
tom through stone gate-ways, (the architect
hail never missed an opportunity for giving the
besieged protection in retreating, and time to
rally.) and then found ourselves in a large open
square, enclosed on all sides by very lofty
walls, the lower part of which displayed doors
;and entrances into barracks, guard-houses. and
shops of various kinds for the sale of such arti
cles as a garrison would need. The Govern
or's house is at the further end. It was a genu
ine soldier's lodgment, and very bare of all ors
Tamen:, except those of war, for it was riddled
all over with the marks of shot and shell.—
Its strong covered balc o ny, intended to serve
both as a protection from the broiling sun, and
from the fall of missiles, was in many places
torn in long gaps. All the towers and build
ings of any elevation had also been knocked
about and defaced by the shot and shells from
Vera Cruz, previous to the surrender of the
castle. But the mutilations and destruction
did not materially affect the strength of the
place. Very few of the guns had been dislodg
ed ;.even the outer batteries were not injured
so as to render them ineffective, with the ex
ception of a gap of ruins in one or two places.
There is about a mite's breadth of sea runnint
between San Juan de Ulloa and the town of

by lung successions of rocky reels, utterly de
lving the approach of any vessels of war.—
Many black and rotten wrecks, visible even at
high water, attested some of the na'ural '•• ter
rors of the place." But in these days it is gen
erally understood by all military men that no
place is impregnable, and that thorough sol
diers, well officered and led, ran and will, and
do take any place. At what cost, is not to the
question. The thing can be done.

The steamship Galveston, Capt. Wright, ar
rived yesterday from Lavaca and Galveston.—
She has brought us fides of papers from the
several cities of Texas. Our last advices from
San Antonio were to the • 10th. There is in
the Austin Democrat of the 16th a letter from
the editor, dated San Antonio, Sept. 12th,
which is the latest.

in command at the Presidio, Rio Grande. and

He says not a word about the advance of

The Victoria Advocate of the 16th has the
following paragraph ;
We learn that an express was despatched to
meet-she Kentucky and Tennessee regiments
of rol6teers on their way to San Antonio, in
structing them not to proceed to that place, but
to djfect their steps to Port Lavaca, where they
will iemain until further orders, which will de
pend' upon the result of the negotiations now
going on with Mexico. The reason of the or
der is, that by quartering near the bay the
transportation of supplies will be saved. The
Kentucky regiment, we learn, would cross the
Colorado at Lagrange on yesterday, and may
be expected here early next week.
THE HELEN hi' LEOD.—Supposed safety of

by Saturday night's mail from New Orleans.
written by a nautical gentleman, who says that
after questioning in full the Italian saved from
the wreck, he thinks it very probable that all
the crew and passengers may have been saved.

all preparing to leave the wreck it the long
boat, had launched her for that purpose, and
three men, including himself, had got in, when
the long boat capsized and filled ; he being
thus overboard. swam to a schooner which
was lying close by and succeeded in reaching
her. He further states that there were several
vessels in sight at the time, both before and
after the squall. and doubtless one or the other
of these vessels took off the crew and passen-
gers from the Helen M'Leod.

_ CAMARGO. September 8. 1846
. I hasten to inform you of the arrival from
Seralvo, of Captin Murray, with information
that , AlleCullough's Rangers had come into Gen.
Worth's camp at Seralvo, and reported that on
4th inst, about 40 miles bringing Seralvo, they
discovered a body of Mexicans forming the ad
trance guard of a • large - force. They retreated
as the Rangers came, upon them, and were pur
sued until they fell back on a large force which
was discovered to be from 800 to 1000 strung.
It -was believed that their intention was to in
duce 'Gen. Worth to . follow them so far as to
attack him befOrd any desistance could reach
him Capt Murry thinks that a battle is. being
fought at Seralvo, this day, the 21st of Sept.
Captain Murry' met Gen. Taylor with a part
of his force, some distance in advance of the
mainbody, and within 35 miles of Seralvo. on a
forced march to its relief. It is positively asserted
that the Mexicans are determined to make a
strong resistance between ,Seralvo and Mon-
Ampudia and Aristia are co.operiting, with
each other, and their forces are fast augmenting.
The Mexicans are rallying to their standaid from , 1
all quarters. The heat has retartded somewhat
the Progress of the troops which left here with
Gen. Taylor—it being out 'of the question to
march during the heal of the day. The troops
were in high spirits, and eager to come tip with
the Mexicins. Two companies of Wingers,
that were here flaying their horses shod, started
immediately after Capt. Murray's arrival.—
All is quiet here. Proclamations of Santa Ana,
AtnpuJia, and the Governor of Tamaulipas, have
been received in town, and are having their
effect entire Mexicans.
The proclamation of Ampudia makes the
penalty very severe upon all who may furnish
provisions—assist in transporting provisions or
in any !wise aid the Americans. It prohibits
them from holding any intercourse or carrying
on any trade with us. Death and confiscation
of property are the penalties for disobeying the
orders. These proclamations have also been
received in Mier and Rey °ulna. The Flag
speaks in highest terms of eulogy of the order
and quiet that prevails at Matamoras, through
the unwearied vigilance of Capt. Clark, second
ed by the active exertions of others.
Proclamations from Amputha,Arista and others
'are being distributed throughout the Department
of Tamaulipas, Those documents call upon
the Mexicans to rally around the standard of
their country, denouncing as treacherous all who
have dealings with the Americana, and threaten-
ing them with the penalty of death.

The Tragedy at Richmond—Adultery and larde
For several days our quiet community has
been agitated with reports that implicated the
reputation of one of .the most respectable la
dies in this city of Richmond. Although the
foul charge was upon every tongue, and the
shameful deed the theme of every discourse,
sympathy for the wronged. and delicate re
gard for innocent connexions. muzzeled the
press, as long'as the corisequences were of a
private nature ; but the excited ilengeanee of
an injured husband exhibited itself yesterday
morning in an act that must call for public in

stances of this horrible affair. Every restraint
is therefore, removed, and there is no reason
why we should not proceed to gratify public

that his brother, Col. Samuel S. Myers, recei

sister-in-law with adultery. and pointed to Mr.
D. Martin Hoyt as the guilty party ; the wri
ter requested an interview, and offered to pro
duce the clearest proof of the truth of the
charge. This proof was furnished• and was
such. that even Col. Myers. with all his devo
tion to his sister, could 'not resist it. Inter
cepted notes were produced. and the most con
clusive evidence was exhibited of guilty inter

The father of Mrs. Myers was almost - im

daughter's guilt, removed her from the city.—
Col. Myers also wrote to his brother informing

builtle Murder 'in Iltlawaro County.
We learn from the .Delawaze Express, ex
tra. of Saturday, that Mrs. Louisa Jones of
Meredith, wife of Philander Jones, was cruel
ly murdered in her own house, on Sunday
night, the 27th ct, September. The -only in
mates of the house at the time were Mr. and
Mrs. Jones:and the mother of Mrs. "ones,. a
very old lady, and quite deaf. -
The facts elicited before the coroner's jury .
established the following facts :—Nlr.and - Mrs.
Jones had lived very 'unhappily together for
many years : she slept up, and he down stairs;
and lately the feud between them had waxed
considerably warm. Mr. Jones' story is, that,
hearing a noise in the night. he got up. and on
going out, found his wife hadfallen down stairs,
she considerably wounded, and life nearly or
quite extinct. He called up his mother, and
his'sons who slept in another house, close by,
and lound his wife dead, then called in the
neighbors to lay her out. Arrangements were
made l'qj the funeral„to take place on Tuesday.
When the neighbors had gathered to consign
the corpse to 'the grave, sookidisSatisfaction
was manifested at the appearance of the wounds
upon the deceased, and a vote taken whether
to bury her or have the coroner called. The
latter was decided upon. and Peter Brock, Esq.
of Hamden, Coroner, was called, who sum
moned a Jury.
The inquest was held on Wednesday and
Thursday. The testimony of several physi
cians, among the number Doctors Fitch and
Jacobs of th is village, was conclusive that the
deceased came to bet - death from wounds in
flicted upon ber head by some person. There
were several wounds on different parts of her
head. and- some five or six, either one of which
H would have produced death. They had the
' appearance of having been made with con
siderable force, and by some metallic instru
ment with an obtuse edge, perhaps a wagon
hammer. The skull was broken in in several
places in the region of the ear, and part of one
of the ears cut off. These and oilier matters
adduced established the fact, beyond a ques
tion, that ueceased had been inhumanly mur
dered; and the jury rendered the following
verdict : "Louisa Jones came to her death by
violence from the hand of a second person to
them unknown." .
Mr. Jones was arrested, and the matter at
once placed before the Grant! Jury. then in
session. who found a true hill of indictment
against him for Murder. He was arraigned on
Friday, before Judge Edmonds. presiding at
the Circuit here, and plead " not guilty. He
will not be tried till the May term.
Mr. Jones is one of the best farmers in Mere
dith, is worth some five or six thousand dol
lar., and has always been considered a good
and respectable citizen, though of quick and
irritable temperament. and. as is the general
expression of those who knew him. is the last
man that would have been suspected of such a
'crime; anti though circumstances are at pre
sent against him he will, we trust, if innoeent,
be enabled to establish fits innocence. He has
employed Hon. S. Gordon to defend him.
