We get hist holdlin him with our diplo

and Scott and Taylor cuts his head off in
every town where they can catch him, hut
he always comes to life in the next town,
and, shows as many heads as if he had
never lost one. I had a long talk with him
in the city, aird'pinnerl hint right down to
the bargain he made with you when you
lethim tato Vera Cruz, and asked him why
didsCx stick to it. He said he did stick
to it as Tar as circumstances rendered it pru
I "But," says I, "Gineral Santa Anna,
that aim the thing ; a bargain's a bargain,
and if a man has any honor he'll stick to
it. Now," says I, ~ didn't you agree, if

now. I ask you, as a man of honor, have

"Circumstances alter cases, Major,"
says Santa Anna. ""When Mr. Polk and
I had that understanding, he thought he

agreed, if I would turn over the votes of

it would be throwing our labor away, for
Mr. Polk's part of the votes in his country

not do much goad to either of us. So I

and stick to the Presidency of Mexico."
"Then," says you aim going 'm stick

Then I tried to scare him out of it. I
'told him our folks would whip the Mexi

"Very well," says he, "go on the Mex

Vour faithful friend and private embassader,
—Among the noble spirits who fell at the
taking of Mexico, was Col. MAUTLN Scurr,
who was eulogised by one of his men as
the best soldier of the sth infantry—his
regiment. Col. S. was a native of Ver.,

the sharpshooters of the Green Maintains,

or distance, always struck the head. Ile
would drive a uail into a board, part of the
way, with a hammer, and then taking the
farthest distance at which his eye could
distinctly see it, drive it home with his un
erring bullet.
Col. Scou is the same individual so cel
ebrated as Capt. Scott, in the anecdote mid

'When Capt. Henry made his escape,
and the Mexican Commander, excited by
that event, gave orders for the massacre of
the Americans, Capt. Clay exclaimed :
"_'Kill the officers--spare the soldiers !"
A Mexican Major ran to him, presenting
a cocked pistol to his breast. He still ex
claimed : me—kill the officers—but
spare the men—they are innocent!" Who
but C. M. Clay, with a loaded pistol to his
head, and in the hands of an enraged ene
my, would have shown such magnanimous
self-devotion; If any man is entitled to
be called the "soldier'. friend," he is."
A meow scuievanzxr.—The several
accounts we have had of the suffering and
mortality of a party of emigrants to Cali
fornia, in the mountains last winter, have
been rather imperfect, leaving in uncer
tainty the fate of a few. By a letter in the
CaliforMaßtar lira learn that passed mid
shipman Woodworth organized an expedi
tion to the mountains in March, and saved
from death forty of the emigrants who
were lost in thessnow storm. The suffer
ings of the men, women arid children were
terrible. ..Two of Mrs. Grase's children
that died, were eaten by the survivors, and
when the party was found, they had eaten
the breast, heart, liver, and lungs of Mrs.
Craves, who also died. The undertaking
to save the lost ones was difficult and clan

AMERICAN ART UNION —lna late num•
her of the Star a Corresrxindent drew die attention
of its readers to this association, established in N.
York City for the promotion of the Fine Arts, and
the encouragement of native Artists. To accom

obtained is applied, under the management of a
Board of Directors chosen annually; first, to the
production of a large and costly Original Engrav

ing every member reeeiyes a ropy ; and second, to
the purviews of Painting-and Sculpture - by tuitive :
and resident artists, which are publicly exhibited .I
at the Gallery of the Art Union till the annual

having one share for every five dollars paid by him.

securing a full equivalent for his subscription.
in a large and costly Engraving, and may also re
ceive a painting or other work of art of great value.
Each member also receives a full annual report of
the proceedinge of the Association.
Last year the income of the Art Union was
$22,295, and 146 paintings, richly framed, varying
in price from $l5 to $6OO, were distributed by lot
among- the- mendwritt-aud- each member of that
year also received a copy of a large line Engraving,
representing the "Parting of Sir Walter Raleigh
with his Wife." A copy of this splendid Engrav
ing can be seen at the office of D. M'Coasrour,
Esq.othr Corresponding Secretary for this place.
We have been favored with a Catalogue of the
Paintings, &e. intended for distribution at the an
nual meeting in December next, and find that 151
Paintings have already been secured by the Asso
ciation, which number will be increased by the
purchase Of others es rapidly as the funds will per

the design before OS we take it that "The Jolly

worth the amount required for memhership.
Such are the purposes and such the plan, of the

marvelling what would he the end of hint and his
chivalric expedition. The "cloud" that hung over
him, we km w, filled the minds of almostall the
volunteer, .a the country with hesitation and
doubt. They wanted to he led by General Tay

man than Gen. Scott. His past history had been
forgotten, or dimmed in that "clowl,"—and there
was a want of confidence in his capacity by almost
all save the officers of the regular army, who knew
him well, and who, therefore, had the utmost con
fidence in his ability. This confidence was not
restored until, by his happy disposition of the fifteen
or twenty thousand men concentrated in our trans
porta before Vera Cruz, they were landed, as if by
magic, and the city and castle of San Juan d't;lloa
were besieged and bonibunted. The

cloud could no longer conceal his brlllll., and the
radiance of his first but forgotten fame ag.iiii ll

populace of his country—end from that moment,
there was not a man in the would under whom ail

MR. Branum :—Allow me to conrct an error
in one of your editorials of last week, in which
you say that the l'ottigrur regiment, under

battles under the walla of Mexico.
That regiment w a.; engaged in those banks, and
behaved most gallantly : but you arc in error as
to the name of iia Colonel. COL AYnnn:w,, and
not cot. RA PIPET, commands the Voltigeura.

BIS 110 P DERDONK.-11'0 learn from the
Commercial Advertiser that the final disposition
made of the application or demand of Bishop 13. F.
0 it,: a ~ vs, for restoration, made by the House
of Higher*, now siting in New York, is as follows:
As soon as the liaison placing the power to remit or
modify such sentence as his in the 11mk.ge_.of
Bishopi had become a law, b . ) the action of both
BMWs, a committee of five Bishops, elected by
ballot, brought in a report reemiummdlog urusnimous•
I y that the Riolsop 'quart leave to !tido-draw his papers."
The report went largely into the reasons for reject
ing his demand. Among others, it is stated that
there was no reason to believe that he had repent
ed of that which he had been found guilty, and
that until there should he received from him an
ample confession of guilt and satinfactory proles
slot, of repentance, restoration was impossildc.—
The report went further, and aimed at impressing
on the mind of Bishop Onderilonk that, since the
°thee of a Bishop w• is given him, not fur his sake,
but the good of the Church, there was nothing letl
to hint but the bait "legal possibility" of being ever
restored, and no such possibility as should be the
basin in his mind of any expectation.
The vote on the restoration was siriren to fix.
The sir were precisely the same Bishops who, on
the trial, voted sot guilty. Two Bishops, who
would certainly have voted with the sixteen, were
absent, viz : Bishops Smith and Potter. All prep•
eat, the vote would have been eighteen to six. •

Jottrillt. CLAYTON opened the case oh Fri

of rare and interestingdoeumentS. One of
these was nothing less than the original
deed from King Charles the 11. of Eng
land, with his autograph and royal seal, to
his most dear brother James, duke of York
and Albany, (afterwards James II.) in
which. the King conveys New Castle and
twelves miles round about it, to the duke
for TEN THOUSAND YEARS, in considera
tion—if we remember--of the duke's yield
, ing and paying to him four rabbit skins an
nually on each feast of Michael ihe Arch- I
,angel. Then came several deeds from the
duke, afterwards the king, with his sigma- .
lure and arms, to,Williani Penn, in which
out of special regard to die memory and 1
many eminent and faithful services which
Admiral Sir 'William Penn, father of the'
founder of Pennsylvania, had rendered to
him, the duke, for ten shillings, conveyed
the same property to our Quaker progeni
tor. These deeds having hcen lost for
nearly two centuries, were found recently
in the charter-room at Stoke Fogies, the
seat of William Penn's desentuns, in Eng
land. The exteriors of them were black
with age, hut the signature, seals, einblax
onry, and royal images on the interior,
were as fresh and as clear as though but
two days, instead of two centuries, had
passed since their delivery.
Wirry, IF NUT ALL TRUE.—A friend at

Westmoreland are the same tally-sticks
that were sent in in 1844, with only some
verbal operations. In Tioga they use a
pine stick. On one side they put au owl
for -"Democrat," and on the other a coon
for "Whig," and as every elector conies
with a *knife, he notches knowingly on
the side he wants to vote.
In most pans of [Jerks county they use

The result of this election was looked to with
more than usual interest, as probably influeneing
to a great degree the next Presidential Election and
the future prospects of parties. A direct and pos
itive issue was made between the two parties on
the question of the annexation of new Slave Ter
ritory. The Whig Convention unanimously re
solved in lavor of the Wilmot Proviso, while the
Lucofoco convention, on the other hand, refused to
adopt a similar resolution. The Anti-81uvery-Ex
tension portion of the Democratic party, with Jutiv
NAN Buttes, Mr. CA l l n nstsso, and other leaders,
immediately called another “Democratic State
Convention," and with a devotion to principle and
an integrity of purpose, that does honor to the
head pouf hurt, denounced and repudiated the
Pro—Slavery action of the Locofoco Conventitm,
and resolved not to recognize its nominations.--

invent, My grandson, Clark E. Evans, who is
now ten years of age, has been for the last eight
years a cripple, caused by falling from a chair
when be was two years old, and wrerching his
spine. From the time of the occurrence we have
tried every means to restore him to his natural
shape, but all without avail. We took him to N.
York, and placed him under the cars of a physi•
cial of skill, and, after remaining there for some
time, we brought him home no better than when
we took him there. For several days at • time
be was so helpless that he could only walk by
placing his hands upon his knees for support, giv
ing him the appisanm co of a deformed hunchback.
He was also taken to Newburg and prescribed for
without any better success. At times he would be
strong enough to go out of dwits, but after play
ing an hour, would come in perfectly exhausted,
and for several days alter would be again perfect.
ly helpless. We hid bit all hops of seeing him
restored to t natural shape or strength ; but a
kind Provide ee placed your External Remedy in
my hands. I have used but four bottles, and am
rejoiced to say that the boy is now as'straight as
any boy of his age. Any of my neighbors will .
testify to the truth of this statement. I take sin
cere pleasure in stating these faits for the benefit
of others suffering under a like calamity. Your's
respectfully, • RACHAEL SHUTE.
This is to certify that I am personally acquaint -

which he was seriously afflicted, apparently for
