so says Major Kaine, a judge in such
matters, who was present. His songs, particular
"Lucy Neal". and the "Taller Gals," were ee
,....cuied in the moat: creditable manner--quite eq6l

for a beautiful set of Maps of Fremont's tour
through Oregon; to Hon. C. Darragh, for the Be.
Ott of the Secretary of the Treasury, and other
:docutniuta; and to Messrs. Hilanda and Bighorn', of

Theill,niral solemnities in hontir of the Ituiten
ted officers who perished id the.. war—Watson,
IBidgely, Perron, Boyd and Graham—were per
fanned to.day,. The weather was delightful, rind
ai'ast concourse of the soldiers, citiiens, societies.
firemen, &c. assembled to bury the dead. It was
one. of. the grandest ceremonies ever performed in
Now, we hare before us the Baltimore Sun,
uthich contains a full "account of the procession,
in which there is not a word about . "Perron,
Boyd-Wad Graham ." Did the "exclusive" report
er orthe Gazette, (who sends despatches that :the
clerks do not understand!) give the editors Such
intnrmation I If so, he is not to be 'depended on.
Ile above is a, small affair, it is true, but this
thing of expanding news by crowding in matters
not trite, for the purpose of making a show and
injur : ing rival establishments, we protest against
• and shall expose. The last Congress news pub.
mhea by, the Gazette was inflated most dirsgrlaCe
fully.' If the patrons of that paper are willing

the Lower House of the British parliament, and
was lost by the small majority of ten votes. Our

of the friends of this benevolent measure, in the
United States, is the probable reason of its failure
of success, hitherto, Even if it do succeed, I hope
to see the 7 4 en Hour limitation itself supplanted by

upon their merit,- their wisdom or their utility, I
yet think them luminous evidences of increasing

armed boat on board the neutral vessels in the!
harbor, to give the notice of blockade. A short
time after the return of our boat, are had a visit
from a captain of one of the neutral vessels, who.
informed Captain Du Pont, that the authorities on
shore were anxious to communicate; that they
had a strong military force on shore—the Sinoloa'
battalion, distinguished for good discipline and
bravery, had arrived only the day before—and that
they had 500 men under arms; breathing defiance;
that they had compelled our consul to leave the
place sense days previous; (a note w•as received
from the consul through one of the neutral %essels.

mauled in the place, and that Gi>U men were under
arms. They admitted they bad known of the war
two months, and had been apprised of our visit
four days. Capt. Du Pont shrewdly et xyfeted that
the object of these merchants was tied simply per
sonal, as they were unaccompanied by our agent,
and did not bring a line from him. Subsequent
events strongly confirmed this suspicion; for they
gave their aysurance,w hen it was urged that grant
ing their requests' would give time to the enemy
to throw tip batteries and receive reinforcements,
that it was impossible for the torcei on shore to
receive any increase during the time; yet, on the
evening of the next day. three hundred armed In.

advance of a body of seven hundred, that were to
join them the next day. These Indians were arm
ed by the Mexicaus and are subsidiary to them.
"Captain Du Pont finally told them that he had
been refused the courtesy of an interview with
the American agent—that he had received a defy
ing letter from the military commander—that all
he could do under the circumstances would be to
extend his terms one hour, which was the time
they had lost on board. They shoved off n few
minutes alter 9 o'clock ; their boat had been on
shore only a few minutes, and before 10 o'clock
both gun -boats were discovered with the .Mexican
stag !lying and on tire, which was seen with regret,
although vie all anticipated hot work in lay.ng j
hold of them. We at once tired two Paixhans at
them which disperWil those that were firing them-,
It was soon evident that they were thoroughly
fired, and we considered so much of our work as]
done—work, too,' which we thought hazardous, as'
the gun boats were hauled well up, ancbthe shore
was lined with buildings and walls that gave pro
tection to their men, and within fifty yards of them;
besides, we could see that they had prepared en
trenchments to cover them, and lied also the two
guns taken from the gon , botrata i and several pieces
of field ordnance.' We felt they had yielded to our
ability to take them, which was actually striking
to seventy-five men—the mosttliat we could have
landed; and with,these they could have come to a
1 hand-and-hand conflict in two feet water. Our
ship's company seas very much reduced in num

THE DIFFICITLTIES WITH TUE VOIXN.
TEERS-TIIE LEGION CALLED OUT
On the day beforeyesterilay a meeting was held'
in the Third Municipality; in relation to the out-1
rages ron,lnitted upon citizens by the volunteers. 1
A committee was appointed to wait upon the i
Governor, and request him to take steps to suppress}
these disorders. The Governor complied, and is
sued orders to Gen. Lewis to call out the Legion,
and put them in position in the Third Municipality.
As an additional incentive to this Ceti, the Gover
nor was informed of the testimony taken by the
Committee of the house of ItepresentatiVeS, from
u Inch it appeared, by' full and competent testi
mony, that Claude Martin hail been murdered by a
volunteer, and a negro had been stubbed.
Before Gen. Lewis' orders to the Legion to as
semble, had been issued. the Sheriff arrived, and
stated that be bad gone down with the warrant to
1 arrest the murderer, and was refused leave to come
aboard of the ship. • These circumstances created
considerable excitement throughout the city. Many
alarming reports flew about. Some to the effect
that the Colonel, or the Lietitenent.Colonel, of the
Mississippi I4.giment had been Shot by his own
men, and the Captain or the ship had been hung,
and the masts cut down. Other reports repre
iented the Mississippians as having killed all their
officers and being on the march to the city. In
consequence of there 'alarming reports a great
crowd assembled around the Place d' Armes, and a
large force of the Legicin was soon under arms.
, General Lewis, with, his staff, were in attend
lonce at the Mayor's office. , The Mayor, in or
der to satisfy that public ,angiety, sent an ex
press to the Battle Ground to ascertain the &wide
tion of the rumors. Before the return uf thiSgries
senger, however, the whole excitement was calmed
by authentic intelligence. that the volunteers had
quietly departed. Thereupon, the Major General
issued orders to disband the troops. '
Brig Gen. Davis volunteered, if the Governor
would authorise him, to proceed With a military
force to Fort Philip, and atop the ships an lisecure
the mnrderer.. But the Governor did not conceive
the plan feasible, and thought proper to decline The
offer. His Excellency has, however, issued his.
Pinclamation, offering five hundred dollars reward
for the'arrest of the - murderer, and' is determined
to make evetynffart to secure him. We trust that,
for the credit of the regiment, the COloneli will
cause the man to hi' arrested and sent to this State;
to be tried according to law.--N. O. Delta, Jan. 31.
