.Pillow, with Cadwallader's and
Shield's brigades, and Twigg's division on
opr left.
Worth's division was much annoyed by
the enemy's guns at San Antonio as we'
were, trying to turn that position, while a
Igiok cannonade was carried on by the
troops ender Gen. Pillow against the ene
my's battery at COntreros. hi the morn
ing of the 20th August, Riley's brigade of
regulars, supported by Cadwallader's bri
gade, assaulted the strong works ; while
the rifles stood ready to flank, and at a sig
nal one rush was made, the works carried,
twenty-two guns (some eighteen-pounders
and O'Brien's guns taken at Buena Vista)
captured, and also eleven hundred -prison-

more than seven hundred men ; and all
this was done in seventeen minutes by the

leaving our prizes, Shield's brigade pur
seed the enemy to Tlalpan, followed by all
the troops under Pillow ; when General
Senn ordered Twiggs by one road, Pillow
by another, and Worth by a third, to ad
vatiee upon the enemy, then in large force
and strong posiuon (18,000 men) at Chu
iehuseo. and the fete du pont near by.
Worth drove the enemy front San Au
who fled to the fete du pont. At
these places an obstinate resistance was
matte for two hours and more, when the
enemy Red to the city, followed by the dra
goons and light troops to the very gates,
leering upwards of three hundred dead and
we thousand prisoners, besides a dozen
ens and large quantities of fixed ammuni
tion. Our loss was about one thousand
aild forte killed and wounded. Here we
captured about sixty of our deserters, fifty
of whom where hanged last week.
In these three fights we lost many of the
beetsnd noblest officers in the service.
General Scott wisely recalled the troops,
as. by entering the city, (which could most
readily have been done,) the authorities
would have been dispersed, and all chances
apace dispelled forever.
Ow the 21st Gen. Mom, chief engineer
of Mezieo, came out, and, meeting Gen.
Scala at Colucan, made propositions for a
truce. The advance of the army moved
to Misguka and Tacubaya. and on the 24th
a truce was signed, and Mr. Trist met the
rour Mexican Commissioners, when nego

During the first tour days of the truce

Having secured our prizes, Quitman's

by this country, as not congenial to•thi
spirit of" our institutions, or the feelings
that should animate us in our intercourse
with the nations of the earth but that
we regard the present war with Mexico
as doubly hateful, inasmuch as it was un
constitutionally commenced by the act of
the President, in disregard of the rights of
Congress, and as it Is waged for the dis
memberment of a sister Republic, upon
pretexts that are false, and fur a purpose
that is abhorrent to all feelings of humani
ty and justice ; and that, although we a
ward to the officers and men engaged in
that war all the praise that is due to skill,
energy, and courage, yet we regard the
glory acquired by our arms as an inade
quate compensation for the blood that has
been shed, the treasure that his been wast
ed, and the indelible stain that has been
cast upon our national character by the
prosecution of a war of conquest and am
bition. the first, as we hope it may be the
last, in the history of the Republic.
Resolved, therefore, That it is the duty
of the Whigs of die country, by , all exer
tions in their power. to extricate the coun
try from the condition into which it has
been plunged by the madness of its rulers,
and to procure a peace with Mexico as
soon as it can be done consistently with
the true honor and dignity of the American
name, and, by the termination of the war,
set an example of justice and magnanimity
that shall reflect as much honor upon the
character of the American people for the
exercise of the moral virtues as they have
acquired by the display of those of a mil
itary and heroic kind.

A Snows/mom. —The ..Mexican Whig"
State of Kentucky has furtifshed for the
Mexican war five companies more than is

to furnish only five companies, lacks just
five companies of the number required.—
Now, e have to suggest to those compa

who re desirous of engaging in the ser

there, to come down to Alabama and they
can have a chance. We want just five
comanies, and there seems to ho no pros

Sec. 25. Any person who ',hall, after

fighting a duel, shall be deprived of the
right of holding soy office of honor or

Sec. 26. That from and after the adop•

shall be elected or appointed to any office
of profit, trust, or emolument, civil or
military, legislative, executive, or judicial,
under the government of this state, shall,
before he enters upon the duties of his of
fice, in addition to the oath prescribed in
this constitution. take the following oath ;
*I do solemnly swear
_(or affirm, as the
case may be,) ,that I have not fought a duel
nor sent or accepted a challenge to fight a
duel, the probable issue of which might
have been the death of either party, nor
in any manner aided or iksistetl in such
duel, nor been knowingly the bearer of such
challenge or acceptance. since the adoption
of the constitution; and that I will not be

"THECHOLERA--The Great Scourge ofhn

earthquake—the Great Scourge of thrrik olera is
at this moment advancing towards us with silent
but indomitable rapidity, if we may believe the in

of the Ruasion Empire. It course is described as
being northwesterly, and it is said to have already
penetrated into the interior of Europe. Goo de
fend us from the agonies which desolated the world
in 1832 !"
The above, from the London Sun, of Oc
tober 2d, the opening of a pretty long lead
er couched in language of similar character.
expresses the feeling, almost amounting to
panic, with which some of our European
cotemporaries seem disposed to regard the
continued progress of the Oriental pesti
lence, which threatens a renewal of the ca
lamities of 1831-2. The Cholera is, in
fact, once more in Europe, sweeping, with
all its ancient slowness of pace, but breadth
of devastation, along its ac4ustonted path,
from east to west; and, as we have every
reason to suppose that it will pass, and, ul
timately; disregarding the barrier of the At
lantic, reach our own shores, as in 1832,
we have looked over our foreign file for
notes of its progress, such as must natural
ly interest'American readers.
The last intelligence that we have from
England shows that the cholera is already
at Riga, on the Baltic, which seems to be
the most easterly point it has reached, and
from-which it extendeinit
through Kieft' (Kiew ) to Trebizond, on the
Black Sea, and farther south, through Asi
atic Turkey, into Persia. It made its first
appearance in Trebizond on the Bth Sep
tember, and in Riga on or before the 12th.
Thirty cases were reported in Trebizond
on the llth, described as being "not very
virulent." About the same number of
cases daily, are reported at Erzoroutn
(near 'Trebizond.) w4crebne-third of the
eases were fatal. The mortality in the
Russian towns is stated at two-thirds the
number of eases. The disease had not
reached Constantinople, where, however,
it was daily expected, (a filial case had oc
curred on the xteain packet Sultan, coming
from Trehizond.) and where a quarantine
of observation had been already establish
ed. Rigid quarantine regulations had been
instituted at Genoa and Palermo ; and
they were talked ofat Malta and Marseilles.
It is impossible to divest the mind of
awe, and even terror, while brooding over
the anticipated advent of a dreaded epi
demic, in which so many will apprehend
the direct judgment of God upon an age of
light and wickedness. But the ignorant
suffer with the wise, and the wise are cal
led upon and permitted to lessen the afflic
tion which would otherwise fall upon the
masses with unequal weight. Experience
has already proved that the resources of
science in Europe and the United Statei
are competent to the successful resistance
of the East Indian plague, whose ravages
were lessened, and, in many instances,
prevented, duiing its former visitation,
fifteen years ago; and now, with a better
knowledge of it titan we then enjoyed, we
have every reason to believe that, should
it visit us again, it will present few of s its
former terrors.
Nor is there, perhaps, any occasion to
expect that its passage to the New World
will be a speedy one. Looking back to
the records of its former occurrence, (from
which we may compute its rate of travel,)
we find that it made its appearance in east
ern Russia in the fall of 1830—et Moscow,
for example, on the 28th of September.
It was not until thirteen months after
wards that it reached England, (it broke
out it . Sunderland on the 28th of October,
1831,) and it was not until the Bth of
June, 1832, that it appeared at Quebec,
upwards of twenty months after its ap
pearauce at Moscow. Anticipating for it
a similar rate of progression now, (and ex
perience shows a remarkable uniformity,
generally speaking, in its advance,) there
would seem little occasion to expect its
appearance in England before next Oct°.
ber, or in America before the summer of
Science and benevolence, however, are
now busily engaged in watching its steps.
Governments and municipalities stand in
readiness to prepare, at a moment's warn

its coming hereafter, should it come, as.

and equally assured that all the resources
