New destination of Gen Taylor's force—
%Advance on San Luis Potosi Counter-
By the arrival at
,New Orleans on the
tlth inst. of the steamship Telegraph, from
Ara,sos on the Ist inst., the Commercial
Times has received important news from
Oen. Taylor's headquarters, and several
Military posts on the line of the Rio Grande.
It appears that the plan of the campaign
has been cntiruly changed front What was
understood to be the arrangement here,
some weeks ago, viz : the simultaneous ad
itireree ut generals Scott and Taylor on the
cities of Mexico and San Luis respective.
ly. No advance is to be made by General
'Taylor, and' no greater force will ho kept
in the valleyof the Rio Grande, and thence
to Sultillo, than is necessary to keep open
the eotnmunication.
The • editor of the Matamoras Flag, of
which we have numbers to the 28111
speculates thus on the recent change of the
models operandi of our military plan:
"The grand base of all future operations,
•-is-intOndetl-to be established at the city of
Mexico, where Gen. Scott now is, with a
force sufficient to make a demonstration in

troops posted at Quaretaro, Guanajuato,
F.acatecas, and Guadalajara—this north

the parts of the country paying us tribute

session as it ever can be, unless it he an
nexed, and we may begin to speculate upon
the-results which are to follow, from the
occupation of the country by the Ameri
can arms."
The Commercial Times says :—How
far the recent intelligence from the capital,
when it arrives at Washington, may ope
rate on the cabinet towards a still further
• change,: may be -conjectured. We step
pse that the troops now embarking at the
Brazos for Vera Cruz, will he ordered to

the issue of the negotiations which may
be now pending. • -

—The Indiana regiment, Col. 'Gorman,
and the Ohio, Col. Breugh, under Brig.
Gen, Lane—the Massachusetts regiment
Col. 'Wright, and the 13th regular infantry;
Colonel Echols. together with Capt. Dens 's
- battery, under Brig. Gen. Cushing—will
proceed immediately to Vera Cruz.
Gol. Hays' rezas regiment is also or
dered to Vera Cruz. It has not yet made
its appearance on the Rio Grande. but it is
looked for daily, and will probably arrive
at the Brazos before the other troops have
Gen. Wool's command, to remain

Carolina, and 2d Mississippi regiments of
_Volunteers, and Major Chevallie's three
companies of Texas Rangers.
A correspondent of the N. 0. National,
writing from the Brazos, Aug. 29th, makes
the whole force now en that line 9.400.-
0I this force, it takes 5,568 fur garrisons,
escorts. &c., leaving but 3,832 to proceed
to Vera Cruz.
Some ten or a dozen eases of yellow fe
ver are reported at Brazos. and several per
sons have died. The fever originated of
board vessels from New Orleans.
Van. Taylor will probably leave Mon

before the first of October next, unlass the
War Department should send despatehes

for him to absent himself from the army.

::. We know that the magnitude of this
scheme will cause many persons to doubt
whistler it is serionsly entertained by the
,kaltolubitration. We do not pretend to say
that Mr. Polk has all along had his cupid
. lir axed on tuck an enterprise. although
there are many circumstances which
strongly sustain the supposition that it has
iOnkbeen secretly entertained by the Ad
mtmtiottion: Our rulers begin to despair

It has been often gliestioned whether
Gov. Skunk has any principles, so cau
tious is he in expressing any opinion upon
a mooted point that invokes the welfare
of the community. But if he is unwilling
to expose the views entertained by hint,
we have them shadowed forth by his sort
in-law, the Hon. Charles Brown, in his
speech et-the. Reading demonstration.—
The Journal says :
In the course of his remarks, Mr. Brown
took strong grounds against the charter of
any banks, no matter how imperatively de
manded by the wants of the business cool
monity. lie also expressed himself or-
*FENCE. In relation to the Tariff, he
remarked that he was OPPOSED to the
act of 1842-1846, or ANY OTHER
TARlFF—thus taking decided FREE
TRADE GROUND. He was also op
posed to corporations for whatever pur
pose erected ! More agrarian doctrines
we have never heard propounded.
We presume that Mr. Drown, being so
nearly allied to the Executive, was out
expressly to shadow forth the views of
Gov. Shook ; and from any thing known
to the contrary, ho did it faithfully. The
people of Pennsylvania, therefore, who
are in favor of enconraging .mittnifacitUres
which afford a home market, and give em
ployment to the POOR OF ALL CLAS
SES, can see the views entertained by Gov.
Shook, and the policy that will govern his
administration in case of his re-election,
and "govern themselves accordingly."—

The RAIT. Mr. MOFFAT delivered a lee
re on Friday evening of last week in. the
Tabernacle in the city of New York. The
Suhjeet of the reverend gentleman's dis.
course was the Mexican war, and he too:
the popular Locofoco ground in relation to
it. Ile announced himself in favor of an
nexing all Of Mexico, het mountains and
valleys, with all die delectable population
that roam over diem, to the United States.
His patriotism is much more comprehen
sive than discriminating. We do not know
whether he is in favor of slaying the eight
millions of people that inhabit that minim,
rv, or of eating them up, or of converting
them ' into Republicans anti exemplary
Christians. Like other rabid annexation
ists, he has not probably made up his mind
as to what should be done with the men
and women, the olive-colored beauties, the
murderous rancheros, the Indians, the
half-breeds, quarter-breeds, three-quarter
breeds, and the infinite variety of other
breeds that mark the form in that doomed
country. Some of the Locofocos are for
sweeping them from the earth with ruth
less and unsparing slaughter, while others,
far more merciful, are in favor of amalga
mation, absorptions, and modifications, the
effect of which will be greatly to puzzle
future genealogists, and to produce a mix
ture of blyod more perplexing than the
mixture of tongues at Babel.—Lonistille
ly "Democratic" doctrine is gaining friends
every day. A number of the leading
"Democrats" in the State hold to it, and so.
in fact do all but the office-holders, and
their teols and wire-workers. The attempt',
to break down the one term principle by
the re-election of Governor Shank, cannot
and ought not suceceed. Ile has already
been in °Mee more than TH I UT Y'
YEARS, and drawn from the treasury the
enormous sum of SE'I'ENTY THOU
SAND DOLLARS. This is "pap" c.
!tough in all conscience. So think the
Whigs and so think a very large portion
of "Democracy," and unless we are great
ly mistaken the nest election will prove
that so think an overwhelming majority of
the people of this Commonwealth.

Exercises of the, past week, with the growing
tared in our Literary :Institution, twidenced by
the presence. of.thelunusually-largeiCtiaientee that
have been in attendance throughout the exincimes,
cannot but be moat gratifying to the friends of
Education. Pohl" been-my privilege to-witness
the - poifermances connected with similar occasions
not only of this but othatinstitutions, and I Coal
entirely warranted in saying that I have attended
irew' at which the exercises, tut a whole, were char
'interlard by equal interest or more ability. It is
not my purpose to inflict upon your 'readers 'a
lengthy review of any one, much less of all the ex•
erases, to which it has been my pleasure to listen.
It has become so common, and so matter-o(-course
a thing, in such notices, to be all compliment to
the performer, that they axe with good reason pe
rused with distrust by the reader..or at least receiv
ed with a measurable degree of allowance.
Yet I may he excused in remarking the sincere
pleasure with which I listened to the chaste and beau
production of the gentleman wno addressed the
Alumni of the College on Wednesday evening—a
pleasure in which I inn sure all who were present
must have participated. It has become so custom
ary on these occasions to servo up learned and. e
laborate dissertations, that the main object, or what
ought to constitute the main object, of these Alum
ni conimunings, is almost lost sight of, and the
Anniversary divested of its chief interest. To this I
style of periMmunce the Address of Mr. Srsv EN.
sob furnished a marked and most agreeable con
trast. The response to the important inquiry as
to “What are the duties and responsibilities of ed
ucated men t" could not well fail to be eminently',
practical, and suggestive of interesting and impor
taut propositions, And in discussing these, the
discriminating observation, sound judgement, and
conortvative sentiment, of the speaker were en
forced in a beauty and energy of style, that com
mended the Address . to the warm approbation of
the auditor. I must not omit a reference to the
Music with which the exercises of the evening were
accompanied—furnished, I believe, by the Haydn
Association, and the Gettys Lodge Brass Band.—
Of the music by the Haydn Association I need
scarcely speak. It has so frequently contributed to
the interest of these literary festivals, that it may be
sufficient to remark that in its performances on
this occasion public expectation was altogether
realized. The opening and closing !deco; by the
Gettys Lodge Brass Band were toast beautiful,
and performed with a skill which scents estrum-di
nary in view of the Cwt that the Band has been
in existence but little more than two months 7 --
With two Associations in our midst, capable 'of
furnishing music such as that of Wednesday night,
no wonder that there was some expression of sur
prise at. this folly, of sending abroad for. and int
potting that which could have been equally well
furnished at home, . KAPPA.

By the arrival . of the steamship Mary

Ameriran and Mexican arms, within a few
miles of the city of Mexico, Werondense
the annexed summary from the Picayune.
From a map and plan of the battle-fields
before us, we note that they are called the
battles of Contreras and,Churubusco—so
called front the field works of the enemy
of those names. The victories were deci
sive, but as far as we can judge from 4 has
ty perusal of a portion of our letters, the
proposition for an armistice was made by
Ceneral Scott—probably at the suggestion
of the British embassy. The report hith
erto given that the city of Mexico was at
our mercy, appears to have bean unfounded.
Should peace not follow from the nego.
tiations now pending, another battle must
ensue, the enemy having a force of from
fifteen to twenty thousand men yet left.—
But the road appears to be coin pletely open
to us, and the city is only two and a half
miles from our encampment.
Our victories have been purchased at a
vast Joss of valuable life. Our entire loss
in killed and wounded is short of eleven
himdred; that of the enemy is not well
known. Ilis loss in killed alone is believ.
ed to be fully equal to our entire loss, and
it is estimated that at least 3,000 prisoners
were taken. The number of wounded
was not ascertained, but is supposed to be
very large. General Scott himself receiv.
cod a wound in the leg he'loW the knee, but
from the manner in which Mr.• Kendall
speaks of it, we are left to hope the injury
