The Nee/Work Courier and Enquirer
has an article on affairs in Mexico reflect
ing with great severity upon the course of
the Administration with regara to General
Scott, and particularly is the matter of
the Trist Mission. In the course of the
article the Courier says :
.:It is a fact, which the Union will not)
question, that Mr. Trist, under the instriic- I
tions of the War Department, sought to!
conclude an armistice with Mexico, which
should prevent our army from advancing
upon the Capital for a certain period.—
That interval of security might, and un
doutedly would, have been improved by
the enemy in preparing for resistance.—
Gen. Scott would have been paralyzed for
weeks,—unable to make any movement ;1
.deprived of reinforcements and supplies;
—doomed to stand still, inactive, nod with-1
a small force gradually dimished by sick
ness, until the foe should have marshalled

of its genuineness. The Mexican chief

TAYLOR. in frustrating the schemes so
shrewdly planned by himself and, r. Polk
at Havana, and undertakes to remonstrate
with his friend the President upon the im
propriety of keeping these peadions Gen
erals longer in the service. To prove their
perfidy, he goes into a minute detail of his
intercourse with "Rough and Zack" from
the time of thelatter's'sppearance on the
Rio Grande up to the affray alleluia Vis
ta, and complains bitterly of Zack's utter
disregard of the "sass" fitruished by Mr.
_Polk. Disgusted with the obstinacy and
perfidy of Gen. Taylor, so fairly brought
to view in the batde of Baena Vista, the
Mexican chieftain comes to the - conclusion
tlytt Zack cannot be familiar with the wish
es of Mr. Polk and his government, and
turns to Gen. Scott. who had just arrived
at Vera Cruz. After referring to the Bu
ena Vista matter, his excellency goes on
to say.
"I hurried from the scene of this misfor

American time to certainly receive your

but - enough to vindicate the honor of my

what I considered to be an impregnable
position, ordered out some skirmishers

my dinner. But did I get it? Your Ex

OF A FORMlU'Raene—The Lower Sandia.
ky (Ohio) Democrat says:
About two miles from this village ova
land known as the "Kerr Tract." there is
an ancient mound, circular at the base,
about 39 feet in diameter, rising ovally to a
point which is surmounted oak stump,
probably originally two feet in diameter,
which is almost totally decayed from age.
A few days since some boys dug into the .
mound; and nearly under the stump, at
the, , depth of three feet, a skeleton was
found, but portions of it in a fair degree of
preservation. Near the head was found
two stone hatchets, an arrowhead, a
stone pipe, and—far more singular—a lot
of plates, apparently isinglass, which are
covered with tines and hieroglyphics of
different and beautiful colors. The colors
mid workmanship betoken a more advanc.
ed and entirely different state of the arts
than has been heretofore discovered in re
mains of Indian tribes. Some of the plates
were destroyed, but there are fifteen pre
served. They are circular, oval in shape.
and about seven inelies,by ten in size. A
pipe -bowl, beautifully finished from stone,
was also found, the bowl of which is near
ly round, rises from a base, on the bottom
of which are the figures 1401. Measures
have been taken under the s upervision of
sonic intelligent citizens farther to explore
this singular mound. There is little doubt
that these plates contain the history of
some former race that has inhabited this
country and farther discoveries will be a
waited with impatience.

the war am calculated to produce a deep irrigation

if our Government had properly supptarted Gene

of each 'of theme officers 20,000 men, they, would

in other woeds, the war would have been termina

and thug unneciessmily and wantonly induced the
expenditure of millions of treasure, the shedding
of rivers of blood, and the sacrifice tnroh of

beat and ablest officers of the army, has not been
prosecuted with effit4einey,' because the Govern
meet has negtectedtofurnish reinforcements. The
brilliant victories of Gen. Taylor have been robbed
of half their influence by the criminal apathy and
indifference of the authorities at Washington.—
The triumph at Cerro Gordo was greatly impaired
for the same culpable reason. Gen. Taylor has
been compelled to linger for months at 2itontarrey,
and Gen. Scott for weeks at Puebla and itaneigle
husband, and all for want of reinforcements.
The conduct of the government in this matter
has been infamous. It has cruelly trifled with
the safety and the lives of trur own troops, while it
has revived the courage and hopes of the Mexi
cans, and thus protracted the war. The public
indignation on these points is nearly universal,
and confined to niapatticular party. "'The two di
