The following highly important intelli
rnce vras comm i micated to us by Lieut. Floyd and Mr. illiams, of the 2d Penn
sylvania Volunteoe, who came over in the
steamship Galvehtnn this morning.
On the Bth, a smell reconnoitering party,
together with soma citizens and disbanded
soldiers, in number about 160, with 76
armed men and 30 mounted, left Puebla
for Vent Crnz. 7 1'his party was under
command of Capt. Bainbridge, of the 3d
On leaving Jalapa, and getting near Cer
ro Gordo, this party was• informed that it
would not be prudent to go through the
pare:airthere weiviabout 4000 Mexicans
in the chapparel along the pass.
Previous to this, the officers who had
gone to the rear of the train were fired at
from the chappand—at the mouth of the
pass the party was organized and marched
through Without meeting an enmity—arriv
ing at the bridge that evening. Whiten
they were bivouacking on the other side of
the bridge, being so fatigued that they were
.unableito Tarnish a _guard, they--were in
fortned that - some persons were barricading
the bridge. A guard was then stationed
between the bridge and the encampment,
to prevent the party being surprised. At
this time' signal lights on the ridges and
cliff, were _distinctly seen. Before day
light a scouting party was sent out, and al
so ft party to clear the bridge, whiCh was
done without any opposition.
The main body of the party then passed
over the bridge, every thing appeasieg j . . 0
be safe, all danger being pasi.
Lieut. Williams and Mr. Frazer were
sent bask to bring on the train nn the other
side of the bridge. Just as they were
entering the bridge, a party of twenty-five
Mexicans appeared on the bridge and fired
several vollies on them. The Wagon matt
ter it'd four others, who were passing on
the 'bridge, were fired on and the whole
five killed, and the wagon was captured,
which, however, was of no great value.
'After the fire had ceased, a party of lan
eers appeared on the bridge, and seemed to
be preparing to charge, but seeing that
Capt. Bainbridge's party were preparing to
receive them, wheeled their horses and gal
loped off. Bainbridge pursued his march
in good order, followed by 400 or 600 foot
lancers, who hung upon his rear and flanks
for four or five miles, but at a respectful
distance. Thus hemmed in, this little par
ty primed its way, until it.nrrivete where
Col. M'lntoeh had encamped with hie
large train. The Mexicans who had at
tacked Bainbridge's patty were the same
who had compelled Col. M'lntosh to huh
and await rem foreemenu. The party re
mained that night itt Mlntosit's camp, and
during the whole time the Mexicans kept
ups continual fire on the camp, approaching
with the greatest boldness very near to our
On the next day Capt. Bainbridge's par
ty resumed its march to Vera Crux, being
joined by Capt. Duperu's U. B. Dragoons;
who were sent back to get their horses.
This company, with its gallant captain,
had behaved very handsomely at the at
tack on M'lntonit camp. Ibdeed it was
generally admitted that Col. ikl'lntosh's
command was saved by the gallantry of
Duperu's party. Bainbridge's party con
tinued their march to Vera Crux, where
they arrived in safety.
In the mean time Duperu's party hav
ing a long return train to guard, and being
threatened by a large body of lancers, halt
ed at Santa Fe, where they were charged
by a greatly superior force, which they
gallantly repulsed, killing many of the-en

was said, however, that some of our wag
ons were cut off, and the drivers were ta

The main interest excited by. this arri

communicated to the Jas. L. Day by Mr.
Clifton, the pilot of Tampico, who board
ed her on the 17th, off that city.
He stated that they were in daily expec

wore reported to be 1600 strong in the vi

On the niglat,of of the 12th inst., a dem

Tampico, to rise. The American author
ities, however, having timely information of
the contemplated movement to suppress it,
if attempted, called out the troops, who lay
on their arms all night. 'There was then
no demonstration of revolt made.

Lancers attacked the outposts at Tampico,

by the disehatge from half a dozen pus

The barque Mary, of Baltimore, put in
to Tampico on the lath inst. for supplies
and repairs. She was bound for Vera

she landed at Tampico.

a nature, that Gen. Scott refused to accept
them, and was determined to push on his

"Whatever the powers of Mr..Trist may

Gen. Scott has thus far given ample proofs

of his talents as a skilful negotiator. The

GeN. TAYLOR.—It was recently stated by
some of the newspapers, on the authority
of letters from Mexico, that, for several
months, the Administration had treated
Gen. Taylor with entire neglect, not even
replying to any of hie communications to
the War Department. The editor .of the
Washington Union put forth what he in
tended his readers to understand as a deni
al of this statement. We sow assert what
we know to be true, that on the 2d of April .
last Gen. Taylor had not, for jive months;
received a communication from the Gov
ernment upon any subjeee'whetever..With
a single exception of a communication
from the Secretary of War scolding him
for his letter to Geu. Gad:teal—Louisville
Journal. ".
The Xenia (oo.)Torch Light publishes
a letter from a •returned volunteer, who be
longed to the St. Louis Legion, from which
we extract the following anecdote::
One night during the four days' rain, I
was standing sentinel; half leg.deep in the
water. It was st_ night net easily forgotten
—such sheets Of vivid; lightning, such
bursts of loud thunder, such roaring groans
of wind and rain. I never before experien

morning, I heard a spllihing along in the
water, and hailed.. It graved to be Capt.
Salisbury, officer of the day, and Lieut..
West, officer of the grand rounds.. After
passing me they found 'the next sentinel
but one engaged in earnest conversation
with himself, in whichlte appeared so in
terested that he did not hear them ap
proach. They had the curiosity to listen
to the soliloquy :
"Yes," said he, "when I voted for Jas.
K. Polk, had I known it would have led to
this, I'd have seen him to the d—l, and
Texas sunk first. Bat after the war was
brought on I was ashamed to let the whip
do the fighting, and stay at home and be
taunted by them. I was obliged to come
fur consistency's sake, but if I had you
here, James K. l'olk"—here he uttered
an a wfuliniprecation upon him—"l'd blow
you through," and he brought up his musk
et to take aim, as ilhe would shoot sure e
nough. At this moment the giand rounds
made a noise and were hailed rtcrnly with—
" Who comes there 2"
"James K. Polk," was the reply.
"Advance, 13 1 —n you, and give the coun
tersign, or pll blow your brains !"
The officers told the anecdote die next
day to the company with great gusto.

Had the mere gift of fifty or one hun

benevolent action of his life, then; perhaps,
there might have been some ground for
impugning the motive of the gift. But the
pathway of his whole life is adorned with
the richest flowers of Christian benevo
lence, which stand out in bold relief to
mark his onward course. His acts, in
this respect, are not like angels' visits, few

seemed ready or willing to undertake the

was made to Gen. Irvin. The appeal I
was not in vain. Suffice it to say, the :

GEN. TAYLOR AND THE Paissusancy.--

from Gen. Taylor, received by ;lie editor

in favor of his nomination for theTresiden

the letter :

By a letter in the Philadelphia Ledger
of yesterday, we learn that a locofoco meet
ing, urging the nomination of Gen. TAY

risburg, on Saturday night last. The Han.
Wm. Dock presided, assisted by Messri.
Peacock, Zimmerman, and others. The
lion. Simon Cameron introduced John M.
Read, and Richard • Vaux, who addressed
the assembled crowd. A central commit
tee to further the object of the meeting was
ordered to be appointed by the meeting,
and resolutions were introduced and pass
ed highly lauditory of Rough and Ready.
From this Taylor demonstration we may
judge that the Locofoces have conic to the
conclusion to repair the injury they have
done the old hero, by nominating him for
the Presidency. The movement is , no
doubt, concerted and well understood, by
the wireworkers of the party, and we may
safely anticipate sonic other demonstration.

party candidate (and according to the Har
risburg “Intelligeneer," they control all

by an assault on G. W. BARTON. Esq., a
distinguished lawyer in that city by a wit

young man who the amen is a
clerk in one of the wholesale mercantile,
houses in Philadelphia ; he is respectably

his evidence bore hard upon Mr. Barton's
client, to remedy which that gentleman in
arguing the testimony to the jury, indulged
in the most bitter denunciation of the wit

for veracity and integrity. Upon the ad

scathing review of his testimony; under

Barton with a cane while leaving the Court

FEDERALISM.—The Locofoco State Central
Committer her issued an Address to the People
of Pennsylvannemocracy in general and
Federalism in particular. Hailing from an Erse-
Wive Committee appointed by the Convention
which placed in, nomination Mr. tilevac, we took
up the Address expecting, of course, to find some
reasons assigned why that gentlemen should be
chosen over Gem leers u the individual most
fitted to fill the gubetnatorial chair. And after
wading through a mime twaddle about
"Democracy." and" Federal isim,"and •!Whiggerj,"

Stunk's name—would you believe it, reader 1—
we did find it To be sure, it was only owe, and
that way. down at the tail of the document, as
though the Committee felt somewhat ashamed of '
the diminutive 'paws" of their candidate, or the
exceeding flimsiness of his claims upon the suffra
ges of the people, and were solicitous to with
draw his Excellency', cause from a too bold and
searching scrutiny.. But then is not the assurance
given that "to his firmness We ate greatly indebted
foc the prevention of many bad measures during
the last session, wit'W; the Federalists were in the
ascendant 1" And after the profound dissertation' ,
on Democracy and Federalism by which this assu- I
mhos is preceded, can any one doubt the strength
of Mr. Skunk's claims, or that the hesitating will
now go to work with minds fully "made up" and
"perfectly clear I"
Occasional portions of this remarkable document,
it is true, might be calculated to start , seam nab
givings as to the aim of the writer in his allusions,
by way of illustration, to the , past history nf par
ties in this country. For instance, when it is af
firriffd that during the last struggle with Great
Britain, while the "Democracy" rallied so Imam
-ethnically to the support of Mr.. Madison and the
War, the "Federalists," with equal real and pro
portionate bitterness, espoused the cause of the en
emy and denounced the war,—one an easterly
help calling to mind that the chosen champion of
that same Democracy was Herat Mar, that it
was ars voice which caused the Halls of Congress
to ring.with the soul-stirring appeals that nerved
timid hearts to a bold assertion of American rights,
and then sped with such eleetric thrill throughout
the eniire lind to revive the drooping spirit of our
armies and prepare. them for those glorious a
chievements which have consecrated to immortal
ity so many of our bettle.fields—battlOfields, too,
closely blended in honorable association with the
names of Harrison, Sant, Gaines, Taylor, Wool,
and other gallant chieftains, now the pride and ,
boast of the Whig party. Nor can one help re
membeing with how much determined bitterness
Mr. Clay, Mr. Madison, and the War, wore assail
ed and denounced by Messrs. Buchanan, Wilkins,
Taney, Wall, Read, and othere—expounders of
Federalism in 1812, but high priests of Democracy
in 1847. And in remembering all this, it may not
be at all surprising that some misgivings should be
started as to the real design of the author of this
Mille People otrenrisylyania," or that
some should Imktold enough to believe that 110000
reminiscences of this kind must have been float
ing through the mind of the writer when he pen
ned this paragraph:
"There is no fact which goes further to
establish guilt than that of the aceinied
changing his namei3o, that he may not be
known. This the Federalists have done
over and over again until many of them
have persuaded themselves that they are
nut Federalists."
The Protection of American Industry against
ruinous competition from foreign pauper labor, by
a judicious Tariff of duties on foreign importations,
is also characterized by this loge Committee as a
Federal idea, illiberal and contracted, and unwor
thy the countenance of a Democratic people. It
may charitably be inferred that the letter of Gen.
JACKSON (whose naine .— is invoked throughout the
Address as "authority" so often as ordinary argu
ment faits to establish the desired point,) to Dr,

I will ask what is the real situation of

trierican'farmer a market tor his surplus
produce 1 Except for cotton, he has neith

not this clearly prove then whether there
is too much labor employed in agriculture
Common sense at once points out the re
medy. Take from agriculture in the Uni
ted State. six hundred thousand men, wo
men and children, and you . will at once give
a market for more breadstuff. than all Eu
rope now furnishes. In short. sir, we have
been too long subject to the policy of Brit
ish merchants. It is time we should be:
come a little more Americanised, and in
stead of feeding paupers and laborers of
England,feed our own. or sloe, in a short
time, by continuing our present policy, we
shall be rendered paupers' ourselves. It
is, therefore, my opinion that a careful and
judicieus tariff it much wanted to parbir

of defence within oursetvea, on which the
safety of our country depends ; and last,
though not least, give a prom distribution

man, who was ,o injured in the tete riot,
at Carlisle, died: vary suddenly in that place on
Friday morning last. His principal injury was in
the-knee, by which he was detained at Carlisle and
confined to his room. On the evening before his
delh, he Was apparently well and in good spirits,
and conversed with his family and ac
qUaittlanees. The next morning, between three
and,Nur o'clock, he awoke and alarmed his fami
complaining of a difficulty of breathing. Med

time he ceased to breathe. It is thought the im

LICENSE LAW.—The Supreme Court of
Delaware hare decided the law passed by a recent
Legislature of that State, authorizing the people
of the several districts to decide by vote whether li
cense, to sell intoxicating liquors should be grant
ed or not, ONCONITIVUTIONAT. The decision,
however, does not affect the merits
.of the law as
applicable to Temperance. The lion. Joss M,
CLAITOX was retained by the opponents of the
law, and in his argument took the position link•
although the Legialature had the right to pass a
law restraining, or even prohibit*, the tratlick in
intoxicating liquors, it , could not delegate such a
pivilep to the people; the power to legislate hiv

Ma: EDITOR :—I am gratified to perceive from
the variouscomritunications which have been pub
lished in the columtli of the "Star" and the "Sen
tinel," that the Whig voters of Adams county are
awake to the importance of the approaching nom
inations of suitable candidates for Senator and
Representative. It is right that they should take
this interest, and discuss with becoming freedom
the relative merits of the different persona named
for these offices. For one, as a friend of Wis. R.
&ours for Senator, I court the strictest scrutiny
with regard to the man of my anion; the mote
familiarly he is known the better herein be liked.
I have known him long and well in all his rela
tions, domestic and social, political and religions,
and in all he is without spot or blemish. He isa
man of whom we might well be proud as our Sen
ator at Harrisburg. In this, his own section of the
county, he is proverbial for his integrity end man
ly independence of atiracter, fbi hie intelligents
and sound lodgment, for his political firmness, and
for his linear and' anabinisive - piety: No man
'stands higher with his neighbors than-he.`, No
min is more deservedly popular than he in the
section of the county in which he resides. He
would receive a gloat flattering support at the polls.
He is well and favorably known t i ltroughout the
county, and his name would be a tower of strength
to the Whig ticket. As iegards his fitness for
Senator, there-can be no kind of doubt about it
I have the most favorable opinion of the talents
and acquirements of Mr. flarsait, his competitor
for the nomination, but I yet tudeolitstingly strum
that as the representative of the agricultural coun
ties of Adams and Franklin in the State Senate,
I should much predw an temillt=6llMent Fee'
on, such as Mr. Sadler, io a s teamed •
scholar and es able • lawyer as kfrAmyeer. I

and but once an offics-holder, (Auditor,) which
dace, I biota, Was confined upon him without his
solicitation, and bemuse, in making up the ticket
that yes, it was found necessary to give his end
of the county something. He has ever been a
warm and steadfast supporter of Whig men and
measures, and has never faultered in his devotion
to the party with which he is identified. His con
nexion is ono of the largest in the county—and
who knows a Sadler that is not a good Whig 1
When other distrkts have wavered, Huntington
and Latimore hatle stood firm. They have been
the first to rally to the support of the favorite can
didates of other townships and miens in the coun
ty; and now
,that they are, in turn, entitled to
something, and put forth Wx. R. BADLNIII as their
favorite candidate for Senator, they feel assured
that the gallant and liberal Whigs of Adams coun
ty generally will acquiesce in their choice and e
lect Sadler delegates to the County Convention.

'said Mr. Oooper, when want of confidence in the

patriotism had undermined their power, was the
time for the Whip to strike. New was the time
to retrieve the dieasters of former years—to lid
prove the victory of last year and render It peters.

to the prosperity of the country' iu the integrity
of its constitution, His opponent,. kr.-Etausra,
was the advocate of measures antagonist to hie,
and adverse, as he (Mr. Cooper) believed, to all
the leading interests of the country.
Mr. Cooper had not' time now to examine the
annual and veto messages of Goy. Shunk and
show note them how injuriouely the policy they
-disclosed must prove to the interests of mechanical
and agriculturallabor, but said he would take some
early opportunity to do it. Re had nothing to say
