9 u'clock..the.next morning, this company
marched eleven Mexican leagues and back

l'wo•leagues filmier on, sney came upon al
detachment three or four hundred strong of
Torrejon's command. The detachment
was surprised in a corral, used as a cattle
yard, with high walls. The Mexicans

almost hopeless, the walls not being easily
sealed. • A great many were lanced. Al

to return to• Puebla, where he arrived."

MOUSE.-- : Our readers may
have noticed, with a good de al - of Incredulity, the
announcement of the existence, in Philadelphia,
of a moue capable of imitating the warbling of
the Canary; and other birds. The matter, it seems,
is not all a hoax. lathe last No. of the *Uneaten
Record & Journal," is on article on the subject
ham the pen of Jews K. To wrisucxn, Esq., of
Philadelphia, who, hearing of the singular capa
city Of the niouse,. obtained it from the lady in
whose possession it was, and subsequently exhibi
ted it at the Franklin Institute. Mr. T. remarks:
"This little animrl was in my posses.
sion more than two weeks. It generally
commenced singing about nine o'clock in
the evening. and: if not interrupted, con
tinued warbling (luring the greater part of
the night. Its song, (never very loud.)
was greatly varied : sometimes almost ex
actly resembling a Canary ; at utipir times
it approached very closely to lhe trilling
of the Wren, and several of the na-
live wood notes of the inimitable Mocking
bird were given with astonishing power
and clearness. Hundreds in this city saw
and heard it. I exhibited it at the Acade
my of Natural Sciences, at the Philosoph
ical Society, at the Franklin institute, &c.
Almost every one was skeptical in regard
to its reputed powers. but all became con
vinced on hearing it, and the sevens of Ihis
city a$ well its others who listened to its
performances, with one voice pronounced
itihe greatest-wonsivr of the. age. The
little animal enjoys perfect health. and
seems to thrive in confinement. It has
become exceedingly tame. and during the
two Weeks iu which I had possession of
it, became so familiar as evidently to court
my society, licking and nibbling at my fin
ger's when they were placed within the
bate of the_cage. Like others of its tribe,
its habits are nocturnal; sleepifig molt of
the time during the day, and becoming
wakeful, playful, and musical as evening
The last icomobeit of -the Jouirial of the Frank
lin Institute, lo reporting the proceedings at the
annual exhibition of the Imaitate, in Philadelphia,
thus alludes to this same memo ;
"A natural curiosity was next exhibited
whieh excited considerable interest. This
was a singing mouse, which, though de
clining on this, occasion to perform in Its'
best style, yet gave sufficient proof that its
musical powers are wonderful for an ani

Of having the cages removed to another
apartment for the night, happened to tieir,
after retiring, a musical chirping in the
room, apparently proceeding front under a
bureau. Supposing that one of her
birda had escaped from its cage and re
audited in the room, she attempted to dis
' lodge.it from its supposed concealment.—
N o .bird, however, made its appearance;
but a mouse was startled from beneath the
bureau, and ran to another part of the room,
where it recommenced its song. It was
caught and confined in a cage, which it has
now inhabited about six weeks, having be
come quite tame, and evidently recogiusing
individuals, by Showing more familiar re

of the Bible destitution, and gross moral
darkness reigning in certain parts of that
State, as the following paragraphs from
the Free Press will show:
Mr. P. stated that in Virginia alone,.
there were upwards of fifteen thousand
families without the Scriptures! and to
exhibit still further the gross moral dark
ness ot-the people in the western section
of our state, stated that two females were
called to testify in Court, on important
business ; on qutotiooing them, previous
to swearing them, it was ascertained, to ,
the astonishment of,both judge and jury.
that they had never either heard of the
Bible or of God!
As another evidence of the morel de
pravity of the people in, some quarter. of
our state, Bishop Johns' Mated at e. lair
meeting of the Virginia Bible flociely, that
on one-Occasion a miniater yes summoned
