Hurrah ! Hurrah ! for th working-man,
In every land and clime!
Hurrah ! for those who wield the press,
Or work by rule and line!
Earth cannot boast a nobler race,
Nor one whose power has wrought
Such wonder aa the working-man
To life and light ha brought.
Tba working-man! the working-man!
Bring change with every hour;
He aettlea in the forest,
And eitie spring to power.
Let these who acorn the working men,
For honest worth make room,
It is to him tbey owe the plough,
The ship, the forge, the loom.
The working man! the working-man!
Hi mission must fulfil;
His march is "onward!" and hia mind
Moulds earth unto hi will ;
Who shall the heart1 wild impulse tame f
The mighty mind control !
Or turn him from the purpose
That waken in hi soul f
The working-man ! the working-man !
Shed light npon hi path ;
Ha soar into the blue expanse.
Brave ocean' stormy wrath;
To far-off ialand in the sea
H bear our flag in pride :
Proud emblem of free-born ra,
That none may e'er divide.
The working-man ! the working man !
The world will disenthrall;
When knowledge with the "million' rests,
'Twili soon be free to all !
Grant to the working-man bis boon,
A school -house en each hill;
"Knowledge is power," and through it ail
High hopes will he fulfill.
The working man! the working-man!
None is more free or brave,
He claim dominion over earth,
And rule upon the ware;
In every hour of peril dark,
When foe would overwhelm.
The first to stem the battle's tide
Were free-born working-men.
The working-man ! the working-man!
Bring from the hidden earth
The iron and dusky coal,
Treasures of untold worth;
The choicest boon in nature' gift,
Bestowed by power Divine
Richer by far than ailver, gold,
Or gema from Indian mine.
The working man! the working-man !
Ilia labor scan with pride ;
The "iron horse" upon the land,
The steamship on the tide;
His genia rear him monument
In every land and clime;
Press on, th price i worth th race,
The earth will yet be thine !
The working-man! the working man!

Sons of the aire of seventy sir,
Their fame shall never die;
Fearless and free, their manly breitts
Ne'er felt a craven throe :
The first to grasp the battle-blade,
The first to spar a foe.
A curse upon th craven few,

And let us writ upon each brow
' Foul traitor coward fool !

All working-men combine;
Expunge each line "political,"
From Main to "forty-nine!"

Of every child of man.
And let each kingly brow that wear

On thi green earth so fair

We extract the following items from the Ve-
ra Cruz Genius nf Liberty, of the 1st inst.
Atlisco haa been taken possession of by 1000
of our forces. The large city was yielded with-1
out the least reaistance. I
Oriz'iba ia doubt lea by tht time a!so in pos
session of tbe American forces.
The Mexican Government haa superseded
Santa Anna as the commander of the army.
Gen Rincon has been appointed to that office
Santa Anna loudly protesting against the viola-
tion of hia rights as the first Magistrate of tbe
nation, a he style himself, and refusing obe
dience to the government, retiree to Tehuacan.
Gen Scott and staff have lately visited theci
ty of Guadeloupe.
Gtn Almonte reached Querela ro on tbe 7th
The New York Regiment of volunteers have
presented swords to Capt A W Taylor and
Lieut J Griffin.
The city waa filled with rumors of peace, and
it waa as id that a quorum had met at Queretaro,
and that the majority dicided in favor of an ami
cable adjustment of difficulties.
There seems to be but little doubt that a force
of Americana have entered and taken poaseeaion
of Orixaba, and it ie altogether probable that tbe
force did not exceed 400 men.
Orixaba contains a population of something
near 16.000 inhabitants, yet they had the good
erne to surrender their city, notwithstanding
that the force waa so meagre that demanded it.
Tbe following officers have leave of absence,
and proceed to the United States those who
are not incapacitated by wounds or sickness, to

city of Mexico, called the North American. It
is a beautiful sheet, the Delta says. The affairs
in the city of Mexico were in a quiet state.
The following from the Genius ef Liberty,
f the 25th ult. contains the most important
item we can gather from the Vera Crux papers
From four French gentlemen, who left the
city of Mexico on tbe 13th. and Puebla on the
16th of the oresent month. w have received
intelligence of a very important nature concer-
nine the state of affairs in those quarters. Gen
Lane havinff arrived at Perote. waa there joined
by Cant Walker and his command. Both sd
vanced together on the Puebla road till they
reached the town ot Vreyea. At this place
Capt Walker, by order of the commanding Ge
neral, took up his line of march to Huanantla,
by way of the towna of San Franciacoand Gua-
pastla. On his arrival at Huanantla a sanguin-
ary engagement took place in the atreeta, be
tween the force of Cpt Walker, conaisting of
250 men, and that of the Mexicans, numbering
1 (WO. the result of which waa the total expul
sion of the enemy from the town, and its occu-
pation by our gallant little army, which lost in

of hia son, whose fall, beneath the armor Capt
Walker, he had just witnessed, rushed forwent,
beedlees of all danger, to revenge his aeaio, ana
attacking the Can tain with irresistible violence,

Tbe Mexicans lost two hundred men and
three 'pieces of artillery. Tha latter were
thrown into a gully adjoining the town by the
victors, who, after the achievement of their ob-

Into this city in eteta of insurrection it en
tered in platoons, delivering at every step a con
etant and well-directed fire of musketry, which
ceaaed not until the enemy retreated, and order
was restored in every quarter.
Gen. Rea, of whom w heard so much lately,
fled with 400 guerrillas towards Atlisco.
Gen. Santa Anna was at the last account at

A large American train was to have left the
city of Mexico on the 3lat ult., on its way down

of Col Harney. T J

The capital is already teemintJwwTTh hotels,

Some very severe shocks of earthquake had
been experienced in the capital.
The health of the army i far from being
good. The climate of the valley of Mexico is
not, as it appear, congenial to the constitution
of the South,
It ia just aa enervating and fatal to the Sou

constitutions. The effective force of the eji
army ia reduced ten or filteen per cent, in

two bal'.a from his revolver.
Captain Loyall and eighteen men of his com
pany of mounted Georgians, and from six to ten
of the rifles, are also known to have bfen killed
in the charge of Capt. Walker. A man, named
Raborg, of Baltimore, interpreter for Captain
Walker, lost a leg from a discharge of artillery.
Col Wynkoop writes that the Mexicans wore
elanghtered after this like sheep.
The Delta also says: 'Our correspondent,
writing at a later date than the 'Ji)tn ult., gives
the following accouot of the death of Captain
The death of Captain Walker is fully confir-
med by a later arrival. It ia stated that he was
shot by a cannon ball from a ma.ked battery, a-
bout 12 miles from the main road, at a point
some lfl leagues from Tuebla. The hall also
killed Capt Loyall, of the Georgia Monnted

A letter dated the 12th ult, received at the

just arrived, in company with a few deputies-,
making the tutal number in the capital about
fifty. It waa thought, says the Star, endea
vors would be made at once to organize a Go
vernment, which would settle the question of
peace or war. If a quorum of Congress could
be assembled, the first question wh ich would be
brought up would be the presidency. Almonte

of the State of Mexico, as tb a candidate of the
opposing partiea. Nearly all the officer of the

to Capt. Philip Kearney, a nephew of Gen.
Kearney who lost an arm at Cberubusco. His
private income is 130.000 per annum J the en
joyment of whioh he left to serve his country on
the battle field. He was some years since one-
in a commission, to visit Europe, to report upon
the cavalry tactica of theaeveral governmenUof
rtion of the commission visited Algiers, where
were hospitably entertained by the French
officers, among whom was one of the eon of Lou
is Philippe. Hoon after the return or the com
mission to France, a number of the French nfli
ccra who had thus entertained them, visited Pa
ris; and, as an expression of their apprrciation
of the generoua treatment which Capt. Kearney
and hia associates had met with, he reaolved to
proffer them a banquet. The invitation was
promptly accepted. The Captain felt himself the
head of the American army, and determined
that the feaet should be worthy of the American
name. He accordingly ordered a full set of ail-,
ver plate prepared for the occasion, upon which
his initials, aaan officer of the army, were en
graved ; and when hie guests arrived, they
were astonished at the magic like magnificence
of the scene which presented itself. It waa the
most costly banquet ever spread by an Ameri
can (with a single exception) in Paris, and well
it might be, fjr it coat the Captain over foO.OOO.
He i, in hia whole deportment, quite unosten
tatious; hut he 'let out a link' upon this occa
sion, not to claim eclat for himself but in honor
of the American name. The motive was a rv
