ton, weie cn board, as were also several
officers and citizeiiB. of whon a list is given
elsewhere, and one Ininitreil ami fifty dua-
b'ed and discharged volunteers. ' We had
the (demure of an interview with Captain
Davis, and from the information which he
polr.ely communicated Id us, we mike up
thn following general suiunMry of newi.
On the 20. h ulu, when Gen. Wool und
bin command, numbering two thouaand m
hundred men, were within about one hun
dred mi'es of Jlfonclova, tltc Genet al re-
ceived from Gen, Lopez, the Governor of
Coahuila, a formal protcil against hi fur
ther invasion o! Mexican termoiy, inform
ing him of the armistice that was entered
into between Generals Taylor and Autpudia
nt Monterey, and alleging that he should
consider any further advance on his (Oen.
Wool'fJ purl as an infraction of the game.
Gen. VVool aeut vord to (Jen. Lopez, in
rrp'y, that he wm aware of the existence of
ttiti armistice alluded la; that his Govern
tucnt, whose orders he waj obeying con
lrued its letms differently from the inter
pretation which his Excellency, Gen. Lo
pez, had jjven it; that he was determined
to continue his lay. lie did ao, and on the
30th halted four milea notth of the city of
Monelova. To this place Gen. Lopez
cam' quickly out, attended by an escort
He politely welcomed Gen. Wool to Coa
huila, and offered him a peaceable aurren
tier of the city of Monelova, explaining, at
the same time, that the protest which he
had previously forwarded to him was drawn
up and despatched in )ho discharge of what
lie believed to be his duty to hifl own Gov
eminent but that so far as he and the civii
authorities of the cily were roncernad and
there was no military foice in the place
they weuld receive the General ami hit-
command a fiienda, and in return they
looked for the treatment of friends front
' them.
The General then encamped his men
where they were -a most favorable loca
tion and, with his Huff and a detachtnen
nrtipcpilHil on. took nnssfsaion of the city
unit raised Hie American nag cr trie cita
del. Excellent anil comfortable quarters
weie seleeied for himself and ctafT. On th
2d of Nov. (Capl. I).) left wnh despatches
for .Washington, taking Aonterey in his
route, having information to communicate
to Gen. Taylor also The health of Gen
Wool's command he represents hi remark
blv good, their match a most agreeable one
end through one of the finest grain, corn
. entinii, suijsr and ptslurage countries that
lie ever saw, or can well be conceived.
.Although reports were rife that the coun
liy wag infested with Mexican banditti and
tie:irliermis Indians, Capt. Davis left the
camp with only two Mexican guides, arri v-
?d fely in Monterey oa the 8d) inst
Tiiere he found things pretty much in re
pose, Gen. I'aylor awaiting despatches from
Washington. The camp wa9 still sickly
and among those who were not convalesc
ing S3 fast as desirable is Gen. Butler. II is
wound is still painful to a degree. Capt
Davis Icfi Monterey on ihe ilth, On his
return he mm Maj'ir McLana a few miles
from the city with despatches to Gen. Tsv
lor. Having been delayed at Camargo ami
o hpr points along the Rio Grande, he wa
overtaken by Major MrLane and others
who had left Monterey later than he did
mil ihi. t nabled him to receive still later in.

in-chief is to ascenain, positively, tin

poll in camp is, that Gen Tay loi'a foicr

he can doss fie pleapis. and if he finds that
ho can get to San Luis easily in this direc

It is a souice of great inconvenii uce and
ofieniime of ruoriifi' ation, lo find ,
behind the lime. The oilier day when the
company, culled into service from Poiiai',l,
was making prep .ration lor departure, and
thousands weie iikaembled to bid liiein fart
well, some individuals from the rouri'ry,
happening to le in town, and seeing an un'
u-ui'lly large iispcmblage ol people, i nqnir-
' d ihe occaiiun of it, and upon be n( to'd
th it a company wa about starting for ilm
seal of war, rephed; they had'nt heard
ihen- was a war, and wished lo know
where il was. Now ihe difficulty in this
case was evidently, that they did not lake a
newspaper, and certainly that accounts sufli
eienily for their consumaie ignorance.
I'heie are thousands of peoph in the coun
try, in circuuiblancee. at d so Ion it
as 'hey presevere in their unwiiie practices,
ihey will cutitinue to grope their way in
J arkuess.
In order ihal those who do lake a news
paper may be lully apprised of what is tak
ing place in the cnmmuniiy, and especially
of those thnga which posses tomr general
interest, I w ill give an account of 'what hap
pened t other night.'

I' ' some lime aincp any of us have been
at a ball, for which there are two reasons.
One is, that but few of us have much talent
in the heel the other is, we have not had
r chance. The first reason has been in a
meisure obviated, by ihe growth of our
population, in which our number has been
inereafcd, by ilmse nf more refined talents,
)f the aforementioned order. 'Die second
reason oi course possessed no longer any
