Washiotow, October 7th, 187.
No further arrival from the South Mr. Wm
B Smyth leaves here as bearer of despatches
from the President for Mexico. I hope he will
tske care not to have hia throat cut, and either
to resort to stratagem or venture about without
a proper escort. I believe that the selection of
the gentleman is altogether presidential.
I informed you some time ago, that there are
various opinions in regard to the manner in which,
the war ought to be prosecuted sgainst Mexico,
how fsr, and for what ultimate purposes. The
result of the election in Maryland may not be
without effect on the deliberations of the Cabi
net ; and as those of Pennsylvania are so near at
hand, these also may be sufT-red to pass before a
definite conclusion is come to.
The question on which the grestest diversity
of opinion may prevail, is probably the adoption
of a line of permanent occupation and where that
line is to strike. The most tistursl supposition
would be that it should be the line srross the
Isthmus oi'Tewutrpec, which would comprise all
that we desired of Mexico, and which, in her fol
ly she resolved upon refusing us. The line from
Vera Crui to Mexico, and thence to Acsptilco,
indicated in one of my lat letters comes very
near it; but, of course, I would, submit to any
thing that goes beyond it.
The idea of "conquering a peace." held out
from the commencement, is now wholly given
up; but the ienninu a qito of the wsr may be
come a ministerial question. It is a vital ques
tion which csnnot be left to in historical conclu
sion, as it will require a unanimous effort of all
the branches of the government to bring it to a
satisfactory tssue. The' time is precious, fir
enmstsnces pressing, ever ts pending : within ths
next hour the annihilation of Mexico aa an inde
pendent nation may be resolved upon. The
thought expressed cannot be called bark, mil
lion of arms will be raised to realise it. Defuc
to we are already masters of this Continent ; the
question is whether we shall have the cnuiags to
assert our sway. If the administration finally
resolve upon thut, we have at h ast the consola
tion to know that there never was a iieriod in the
history of Europe and Asis more favorsble to
the enterprise. Half way measures, however,
will not answer, either in the Cabinet or the
I am glad to be able to inform you, thai the
King of Prussia, who for a long time obstinately
refused to grant the F.xequatur to II r. Charles
Graebe, appointed some time ago Consul for the
Rhenish provinces of Germany, has, at last, con
sented to do so ; Mr. Buchanan having as obsti
nately refused to nominate another- gentleman
for the office. The consequence waa that there
waa no U. S. Consul on the Rhine, and that the
merchants and manufactures of those provinces
were put to very great inconvenience, which at
laat induced William IV to yield. This ia tbe
only way in wbirb the Republic of the llMh cen
tury will ever make itself respected by monar
chy. "A people of twenty five millions," said
Voltaire, "have a right to set their on fashion."

I take the liberty of informing yon of a
tpld blooded murder, of a young mar. belnngii.g
to the North Carolina Regiment, by their Colo-'
nel'a own hand, (Col Payne) He had a wooden
horse put up for the purpose of riding all of his
men on, who did not obey all of hia commands.
On the evening of tha Nth inst. tbe men belong
ing to tba Virginia and Mississippi Regiments
went en mass and rode his horse to death. He
then made application to Col. Hamtianuck for
satisfaction, who told h.m that he ought to have
kept bia horse in the stable. However, on the
I Sth, he had bia horse again made ready for ri
ding, and about 10 o'clock on 'the evening ef tbe
19th, the men met to take a look at it, when Col
Payne shot among them, killing one of bis men.'
and shooting the band entirely off of one of our
men.' I have not ascertained the men's nasncs,

mir.sted, as usual, in fsvor of the democrstic
party. The majority for Governor, though not
as large as has been polled heretofore, is still
what may be termed a elever majority. Some
of the county officers did not run so well owing
to local matters, and circumstances that were
not unknown prevoua to tbe election. The mor
ning of the election gave promise of a fine day,
but towards noon the weather became cold,
blustering and rainy, and no doubt prevented
many coming to the election.
C7 The democratic victory ia greater than
expected by either arty. Shnnk's majority
will be from 10,000 to 15,000. The Native vote
has fallen off. .

when hukked. The rise in the North Branch was
not great, and consequently but little damage
has been done here, aa well as up thst branch of
tbe river. Canal navigation bas been suddenly
checked, and that, too, at a season when mer
chants sre laying in their stork. The Juniata
has been very hie;h, and that canal, we presume,
has suffered considerably. At Duncan's Island
another tremendous break bas ncurrcd, neat the
same place, we believe, that had been torn away
in 1846. The rush of water was so sudden, as
to carry away a small tavern stand near the break'
On Friday afternoon one mile of ssw logs, thick
as they could run, passed Williamsport.

stand that a force of 200 men are st work at tbe
break on the canal on Duncan's Island, and that
it will be repaired in two weeks. The damage
on the Juniata ia immense. Lewistown wss
completely inundated, the wster being 30 feet
above low water mark. Not a bridge ia left on
the Juniata, and it is doubtful if navigation will
be resumed this fall.'

An Official l.cllar from Major l-ally.
The following letter from Major Lally wss ad
dressed to Col Wilson at Vera Crux, and by him
forwarded to Adjutant General K. Jones at Wa
Hrwi(t Arums, Jsmpa, Aug. 2C, 1817.
To Gov. WU.on, Vera Cms: My command
reached thia place on the morning of the 20th
inst. We have fought our way triumphantly
eveiy inch of the route, but have had severe con
test! nay, battles with the guerrillas; on the
10th at Paso Ovejas, (as before reported,) on the
12th August at the National Bridge, on the :."th
of August at Cerro Gordo and on the 19th at Las
Animas, only a mile and a half from this city.
Not a wagon has fallen into the hands ofthe ene
my. We have been opposed by at least 1 ,200 or
I 500 guerrillas on these oecssions perhaps less
st the last, for they were badly whipped at Cer
ro Gordo, where their loss wss so large that they
could uot reorganise. Father Jarauta comman
ded them. Our loss is great. During the entire
march 7 officers wonnded; 12 of rank and file
killed; 5 mortally wounded; 66 wounded Of
thia number, 4 killed and 4 wounded were at pla
ces elsewhere thsn the four actions named above.
I regret to ssy, that at the National Bridge Mr.
George D. Twiggs (expecting a commission and
to be A. D. C. to Gen. T ) was killed while gal
lantly serving in my staff; Capt. .1 II. Caiwell,
of voltigeura. and. Capt A C Cummings, llth in
fantry, were wounded on the 10th. (as before re
ported ) but are doing well now. At National
Bridge, Lieut Jsmes A Winner, of voltigeiirs,
snd Lieut George A Adams, of marine corps,
were dangerously wounded; also, on the same
day, Cspt W J Clsrk, 12th infuntry, in the thigh;
2d Lieut Charlea MCrenror, 12th infantry, not
severely, in the leg. At Los Animas, on the
19th, Major F T Lally, 9th infantry, comman
ding officer, was wounded in the neck, not se.
verely, but has, for a few days, been disabled
A large number of sick hsve acenmulsted, be
sides our wounded ; and we shall be compelled
to remain here many days to recruit. I cannot
too much praiae the gallantry of the officers the
men, raw and uninstructed, hsve grsdusMy ac
quired confidence. Col. Wynkoop arrived from
Perote on the 24th having beard we were in dan
ger at Cerro Gordo. We waited three days for
your reinforcement, and hearing of it at Plan del
Rio, aent back a body, nf dragoons tn National
Bridge, who, finding it in possession ol tbe ene
my, we concluded that it was repulsed. I am
pained at the rumor we heard ofthe loss of some
of its wagons. Dr. Cooper and 13 wagons rea
ched ua. I cannot too earnestly recommend that
you assume the authority to order the re occupa
tion of thia city. Even if Gen. Scott was not
before the. eity of Mexico, and beyond the reach
of reinforcements, yoa perceive that trains are
constantly endangered by guerrillas, and I am
satisfied thst this city hss been their head quar
ters, snd that their chief supplies bsve been for
wsrded from here.. Their spirits have been rai
sed by absence nf the troops. I am certain that
Gen Scott, on the spot, would order its re occu
pation. Col. Wynkoop concurs in its importance.
Very truly yours. F, T. Lat.tv,
Major 9th Infantry, commanding,
We understand that Major Lally'a suggestion
has been anticipated, and that orders were issued
on the 12tb of August, from the office ofthe Ad
jutant General, directing the re-occupation of Ja
lapa. We presume that before this time a mili
tary post hss been estsblisbed in that city. We
cannot doubt that Maj. Lally'a force joined with
Colonel Wynkoop's and General Lane's force, at
2,000, bas advanced to form a jcuetion with Gen.
Scott J CVi.'on,
Ots'. SrcaMNa rercs This officer, who baa
recently returned from Santa Fe. has, like some
other gsllant soldiers, been the subject of muih
newspaper comment, and hia character as an offi
cer been violently assaulted in certain jnurnala.
A letter from Santa Fe, published in tbe St. Lou
