Eds. Della.-1l train of 200 wagons
rived yestehlay afternoon from Vera Cruz,
and proceeded this morning, in company
with Gen. Twigga' Division, towards Pu
etill and the City of Mexico. Capt.
Walker's gallant kind of mounted men
accompanied the' train. and during tIM
journey had two skirmishes with superior
force of Mexican lancers or robbers. The
last took place at Santa he, at an early
hour in the morning of Wednesday last,
which resulted in the Complete route of

-10 killed and many wounded.

dangerously. The 2d Dragoons, who
were first attacked by the Lancers, while
reposing in slumber. had six killed and
eleven wounded. Walker, in person, pur
sued the wretches, as well as the darkness
of the occasion would admit, captured six
prisoners, who were handed over to the
dragoons, and almost instantly shot dead.
Capt. Walker has 180 men, only 100 of

Advantate has been taken of the circum

produce an excitement among the students
_at the College against the l'rofessor, but it
has signally failed. As soon a s s the facts
were'fully known, the students assembled
it a body, and instead of "demanding the
dismissioai" of the professor, as the Led
ger story has it, they passed resolutions
highly complimentary to him in every, re
spect: The time has gone by, when it was
a crime for eennsylranians to assert and
uphold the supremacy of their own laws,
or to aid the oppressed by all legalimeans.

EIMAcIrrION or TILL.—BUW long tho Itunp of
conversation holds out to hum between two per
sons only, is curiously set down in the fallowing
passage from Count Gonfallione/thaccount of his
"I am an old man now ; yet by fifteen
years my soul_
- is yotfngcr than my body !
Fifteen 'years I existed, for I did not hve—
it was not life—in the self-same dungeon,
ten feet square! During six years I had
cotnpanion ; during nine I was alone !
I never could sightly distinguish the face
of him who 'shared my captivity in the
eternal twilight of our cell. The first year
we talked incessantly together! we rela
ted our past lives, our joys forever gone,
0ve6,,,1nd over again. next year we
communicated to each other our thoughts
and ideas on all subjects. The third year,.
we had no, ideas to communicate; we were
beginning to loserthe power of reflection !
The fourth, at the interval of a month or
so, we would open our lips to ask each
?AFL egst ibat tile
we formed i s portion of mankind. The
fifth we wire silent. The sixth, he was
taken away; I never knew where, toexecto
tion or to liberty; but I was glad when he
was done; even solitude was better than
the dim vision of that pale vacant face.—
After that I was alone, only one event
broke in upon nine years' vacancy. One
day, it must have been a year or two af
ter my companion left me, the dungeon
door was opened, and a voice—whence
proceeding- I knew 'not—uttered these
words; "By order of his imperial majes
ty, I intimate to you that your wife died a
year ago." Then the door was shut, and,
heard no more ; they had but flung this
great agony in upon me, and left me alone
with it again." '

' public attention to them. Perhalis in the
history of Medicine, from the dine of Hip

equal celebrity in so short a time. There
was never a medicine recommended by
such high authority as Dr. Smith's Pills.

curative powers to open all the natural
drains of the body,,vizi : the Lungs, Kid

all other pills, extremely pleasant, being
coated with sugar, and as they do not gripe,
nor produce nausea, or any other unpleas
ant consequences, they have become very
popular for Dyspepsia, Headache, Costive

Esq., of your town. His name and experience as
