1,000 troops, with arms, and ammunition, and
provisions, and land them on an
coast, within two days march of London; at the i
same time sending 50,000 men to Ireland.—

in the course of which the enemy was repulsed,

his attacks through the houses, which he pierced
in a directicur towards the centre of the city, he
succeeded in posting , himself within half gun-shot

Under these , circumstances, I was requested by
various' principal officers to endeavor to come to
such terms as would diminish our losses; for to
open our way with the bayonet, surrounded as we
were by entrenched enemies would have resulted
in the dispersal of the troops, .and nothing of the
material would have been saved. These consider
ations having been weighed by me, I also took in
to view what the . city sulTered; and would suffer,
from the attacks, by the piercing of the houses, as
well as the destruction by the bombs; the scarcity
of ammunition, which was beginning to be felt;
the provisions which we were losing, as 'the ene

of things for two or three days, even if it were pos

march to Saltillo, where I wilt await the orders of

PEDRO DE AMPUDIA
God and liberty! Headquarters in Monterey,
September '25, 18.16.
The following is the proclamation of General
Saha, the acting president, to the people of Mexi
co, announcing the loss of Monterey:
Mexicans! A government established against
the will of the nation is interested in concealing
from it events which are disastrous to it; above all,
When the responsibility of their occurrence must
-fall upon the government. A government whose
Sentiments and interests are no other than those of
the nation, and which has emanated from the
haovement by which it threw off its oppressors,l
.I!ltas no need to conceal anything from it, for the
luntion itself must combat for its preservation and
for its honor.
I Mexicans! Monterey has fallen. It was not
;enough to defy death, as our valiant fellow-coun
!tiTmen did for finis days; it was necessary to do 1
more, to defy want in every shape, and the insutli-i
!ciency of means of resitance. The intention of 1
!the enemy to occupy the whole republic is mans-
lest; but the government is determined to triumph'
tor perish with the republic. Partial%isasters are
of no importance; the Spanish nation suffered much
more in the space of six years, and the result of
heroic efforts, and the co-operation of all her sons,
was that the bones of half n million of unjust in
vaders-whiten the fields of the peninsula. Shall
we become unworthy of independence, by not
showing ourselves sons worthy of our fatherst—
i That in dependence was achieved by us alone, only
after ten years of constancy; and it is not possible
that an organized nation should show less strength
than its oppressed sons, such as our first leaders
Mexicans! The time to .act has come., Will
you suffer your population to be decimated, send
ing it to perish by handsfull od the frontier, one to
day, another to-morrow, and to perish less by the
enemies bails, than by neglectl The government
,will exert all its power in the defence of rights;
but it has a right to expect that indifference or in
active contemplation shall not be - the recompense
of its plan of operations; for the nation will prefer
that not one stone should be left on another, rather
than behold its sovereignty, its rights and its tem
trampled under foot. The invincible gener
al called by it to place himself at the head of the
troops is resolved not to survive the dishonor of
Will it be less so! No. Our blood and our
property will• be the sacrifice that we offer up; and
when you are in the 11111 enjoyment of the rights
which you claimed, I do not doubt of your co-ope
ration, and with it we will snatch from fortune a
complete victory, which in the end will ensure to
us existence and honor.
JOSE MARIANO DE SALAS.
Mzxrco, September 30, 15 , 10.
The Republicano of the Ist of October says:—
"The disagreeable intelligence which arrived
yesterday from the northern frontier,, , and which
we copy, in continuation, from the Diario del Go- ,
bierno, is perhaps the prelude, of still more dises-1
trona news, which will put the patriotism of Mex
icans to the test. No effort can be too great, when
the object is to defend our lives, our honor, and
our independence. No one who feels all the force
of the word country will fail to experience the ut
most indignation against this. treacherous enemy,
who has dreamed of lording it over our territory:
a barbarous undertaking which he cannot accom
plish, as we trust, while a single son of Morelos
"It is asserted that the terms of capitulation
agreed upon by General Ampudia, stipulated for
the withdrawal of the Mexican troops with all
their supplies and equipment, for the purpose of ta
king post at SAO°, and that the general was re
duced to this necessity after four days' of the se
" We shall always lament that in this matter no
attention was paid to the advice of General Santa
Anna, who besought the government to send orders
to our army to withdraw from Monterey. a place
which could not be defended in any event on ac
count of its being commanded by 'heights. We
shall, on this occasion, repeat what we have al
ready said: the war must be carried on against the
Americans as the Spaniards in this century warred
against the French, by the system of guerillas, ca
pable of destroying the most numerous and best
organized army. The establishment of the nation
al guard aliduld he devoted to the practice of the
system. In - wit other way the republic is lost.
The artillery of the North Americans is very
much superior to ours,; and we rairst'counteract
that powerful element by calling into play all the
resources of which. history, experience, or reason
has taught us the efficacy. Shall these lessons be
lost upon Mexico? Are we deficient even in the
natural instinct of avoiding death?"
No mention is made iu those. papers of Santa

from Monterey, as late as October 4th, from which,
we extract several items of interest:

he is a villain, a tyrant, and a coward. And this
great Mexican General. I am confidently told, was
once a common draytnan in the streets of Havana. '
4 Mcriian Toast. —Many of the Mexican offi.,
cers called on Gen. Worth, among whom were Don ,
Francisco Bena, who commandant the Obis Pado,
or Bishop's Palace. Gen. - Ortiga, Col. Marino, and
others. While drinking with these gentlimen upon
this occasion, Gen. Ortiga gave the following toast,
at whose pronouns, we and our, I could not help'
hilt smile. He said. "I drink to the perpetual peace
of the two Republics, and may we hereafter over
be as brothers joined in one cause, and let us show
to foreign nations the greatness of our power, while
the valor of our arms shall teach all Europe that
we can defy them."
The MoneCiTy Cathedral--impudin's Hiding i
entering the Cathedral, I found it filled'
with amunition, escopet balls and cartridges, bomb
shells, canister and grape shot, in piles and heaps.
The church is very large and spacious, being oma
mented with fine old paintings, carvings represent
ing the Apostles, etc., and many images of the,
saints While looking at the very fine head of
some priest of olden time, one of the reverend fa
t them approached me, and asked me if I was a con-1
noiseur—at the same time telling me that the
painting was executed by one of the old maestrosi
of Spain, whose name I now forget; he then ac
companied me through the church, which he told
me had been built more thaa two hundred years,'
;and showed me their
_patron Saint, which was
magnificently embroidered on white velvet, orna
mented with gold, lie told me it was executed
be the nuns of some convent The interior of the
church is nearly as large as any that I have ever,
seen. We then walked out into the court-yard of
the Cathedral, and visted several small buildings
attached to the church, passing through a massive
, gateway, the priest pointed at the side of the wall,
which was bespattered with blood, and told me
that one of our shells had bursted there, killing 2
officers and 2 privates. At the same time be
showed me the door of a very strong building,,
which be told me Ampudia had taken refuge in:,
and said that, at Et o'clock on the night before the,
truce, Ampudia had written a note to Gen, Taylor,
surrendering the town: but on account of our
strong picket, he was riot able to send in the note
with safety, and consequently it remained over
till next morning—when, I suppose the big team
having abated, he changed the tenor of his note
from an unconditional surrender to one of capitu.l
tenon. In the small buildings I visited were the
priests' robes, the records of the church, and im-i
mense large wooden coffers, which were once well'
filled; but, as the holy man assured me, were now

More Fighting .Inticipated.—"Whether from in
formation lately received, the source or tenor of
which I have not been able to team, or from mo
tives of precaution, I know not; but the impreesion
seems to be. that at the end of the armistice the,
war will be renewed with a tenfold vigor. It is
said that Col. Belknap goes down tomorrow, to
order up the long td-pounder from Camargo—like
wise, several parks of artillery which base lately
arrived, and to hasten on large quantities of sup
plies which are daily arriving, as well' as several
regiments of volunteers. It is expected that the
Mexicans will make a desperate resistance at the
two passes on this side of Saltillo, called the Rin
condo and Pam de los Muvertee.
THE YANKEE "WOT FIT THE BULL."
We observed in our Northern exchanges of yes_
terday several favorable notices of a new work
just issued from the press of Harper & Brothers
It is entitled "Etchings of a Whaling Cruise, with
Notes of a Sojourn on the Island of Zanzibar, to
which is appended a brief History . of the Whale
Fishery," by J. Ross Browne.
One of the very best characters in the narrative
is represented to be that of Barzy McF a
Down Easter, from Maine, who is described as a
gawky youth of nineteen, °I unruffled good humor,
and an irresistible awkwardness and wit. Some
of the scenes of which he was the hero. are ex
ceedingty ludicrous. One of the best is the account
of the bull fight on the Comm° Islands—in an
arena surrounded by walls with steps of stone lead
ing down to the centre. Mack had taken his seat
at the top of the steps, where he could at once
ihave a good view and enjoy a comfortable degree
'of personal security.
He seemed highly edified with the sport, and on
casionally gave 'tent to his satisfaction by shouts
lof laughter and cries of "well done, old critter!
Look out, you darned niggers, or you'll get struck!
My gosh! ain't he savage now!' Mack wore a red
shirt, which now and then attracted the attention
of the worried animal. The natives having wro't
it to a state of madness, began to show signs of
fear, and made their escape through a small aper
ture in the wall. Mack rolled up his sleeves, and
let his courage boil over in the most warlike strain.
Squaring himself in a pugilistic attitude, he shout
ed at the top of his voice, "Come on, if you want
a lickinl I'll give you a Yankee touch, old feller!
I'll ornament your ugly picter with a pair of black
eyes! Come on, sir! Come on!"
The infuriated bull, not at all relishing the in
sults of the man with the red shirt, turned short
sound and made for the steps. "Come on!" roar
ed Mack; "Come up here you blamed ugly look
ing critter! Darn your orful visage,l'll show you
a thing or two! I'll spoil your nose for you!
11l do you bodily damage!" Snorting' and paw
ing the ground with rage, the bull bellowed and
shook his horns, but seemed rather dubious about
attacking a live Yankee. Mack capered about like
a madman, and made sundry scientific passes With
in a few. feet of the animal's head, to the great
amusement of the natives, Who.cheered and roared
with laughter. "Why don't you-lay into me?"
said Mack, kicking at him. "Don't you sorry my
lingo, You bloody Arabi" . At this there waastich
an uproar that the bull, this en to desperation,
ed„madly up. the steps, bellowing frightfully.

We were all enjoying a hearty laugh at Mack's
expense when he, came, limping. pp- to where we
stood, rubbing his bones and looking: rather used
up after his encounter. Unable to resist our cachi- .
nations, he joined - in the laugh, and asked us what
was the fun. "Why," said _some of the crew,
"ain't ybu dead yet?". "Dead!" cried Mack, 'not
yet, I ain't. I've. Only, leen taken 'a hoi'h. Dead;
indeed! why, ain't ,I the man toot fit the btill?-:--
Ain't I the man toot pushed-the bull off the bridge?"
Morrraas.r.--We find in the Louisville Journal
quite a pleasantpassage of discrilition. B.corrob
orates The fact of the Brown Cotuity boy, j ilt the. or
"tinge tree, on the 23d September. ;
"Monter)! is a beautiful place, filled with. orange
groves and gardens. It lies at the very foot of that
Sierra Madre mountains,which embrace it ongvery'
side, their tops lost in the clouds. A - beautiful
river sparkles through its midst-Lits Soil iiroduces
every fruit of the tropics. The-orange,citron,
pomegrant, fig, and banana surround you on every
side the most magnificent birds warble in the
brauces of the trees. Nature has done everything;
it is only the vile race of Mexicans which renders
the place detestable. .
I send L. a flower which I plucked from the
garden of Ampudia's palace, which is more beau
tiful than I have power to describe. I galloped
all through it yesterday, pulled the flowers, lounged
on the grus, sucked the oranges; kicked over sev
eral flower pots, shook my sword at a few ragged
native, and imagined myself a prince. We will
have easy times now for a ..few weeks, nothing to
do but eat and sleep, and we desire it I assure you.
The march up was terrible, exidsed as we were to
all the severity of a tropical sun:"
THE PRIVATE SOLDIERS
The following, from the National Intelligviccr,
touches a subject of great importance, and one that
we are glad to see so respectable a newspaper call
public attention to. The private has friends as well
as the officer, ani amongst the volunteer privates
is to be found some of the best, as pied as the
bravest blood of the land—descehdants, too, of the
race that battled British oppressomend Indian bar
barians, during the period that our country was
winning a name among the nations of the earth:
"Our readers may recollect a suggestion which
we copied, a month or two ago, from a paper in
the interior, of the expediency of publishing, on the
occasion of such brave and sanguinary conflicts as
those in May last 'upon the Rio 'Grande, the names
of the Private Soldiers, as well as those of the offi
cers who fell in fighting under the standard of their
country. This suggestion wel heartily approve.
We can see no reason why the rank and file should
be nameless, and numbered only as the horses
which are killed on the field of battle, when they,
without the same prospect of fame and advance-:
ment 'as those who do honor to,their commissions.
in the various grades of military office '
their duty as men and as soldiers, and laid down
their lives to serve their country.
..-1s a commencement of reform of this - odious
distinction, we see that the Commanders of the
volunteer corps engaged in the late three days'
fighting at Monterey, have in some instances made
reports to their superiors, giving the names, &c:,
of all the Privates as well as officers killed and
wounded under their respective commands: a
course obviously due to the farniliei as well as to
the memories of the killed, WhO went out at a mo
ment's warning, and the only difference between
whom and their officers is in very many casea.oue
of accident only—the chance of the ballot by
which they themselves had voluntarily chosen
their eiluals to be cheat Officers for the campaign
