Our. march was resumed the following,

eavalry had reached tho water-hole of "Palo.

,ourfront, and were soon dis Covered occupy,-

reaching the water, with a view to rest 'd
refresh, the men , , and form deliberately" our
• line of battle. fhe Mexican, line was nevi
plandy visible across the prairie, and about
three quarters dirt mile distant. Their left,
which was composed -of a heavy force of
• cavalry, occupied the road, resting upon a
thicket of chapparg while masses of Wan,.
try were discovered succedsien on the
right, greatly outnumbering our own force.
Our line of battle was note formed hi the

Col. Itiltrlntosh; Major Ringgold's artillery;
3d infantry, commanded by Captain L. N.
. Morris; two 18 pounders, commanded by
Lieut. Churchill, 3d artillery; 4th infantry, Maj. G. \V. Allen , the 3d
arid 4th regirnents, composed the 3d brigade,
under command of Lieut, Col. Garland, and
all the above corps, together with two squad
rons of dragoons, under Captains \ Kier and
May, composed the right wing, under the
orders of Cpl. Twiggs. The left was formed
by the battalion of artillery commanded by
Dere. Col. Childs, Capt. Duncan's light ar
tillery, and, the Bth infantry, coder Captain
Montgonier3-ell forming the let brigade,
' ueder Limit. Col. Belknap. The train was

now.detached to support that battery, and the

with two pieces of artillery, were now re

to our right to threaten that flank, or make a
demonstration .against the traits. The sth
infantry was immediately detached to cheek
this movement, and, supported by Lieutenant
Ridgeiy, with 8 section of Major Ringgold's
battery and, Captain Walker's company of
velunteers, effectually repulsed the 'enemy—
the 511Arifantry tepelling a charge of lancers,
and the artillery doing great execution in

to that flank, yet threatened by the enemy.

Gen. 'Scott and Mr. Polk.
The letter-from Gen. Scott, which the Presi
dent has made the ground. for removing him
from the command of the Volunteer forces
against Mexico, will ° be found on our first
page. enable the public to lorm just con.
elusions as to Gen. Scott's 'course, the whole
correspondcnCe should be published, but un
fortunately it is two lengthy fur our columns.
A brief review of the subsequent letters is all.
that we are able to give..
The letter from - Gen. - Scottis folfOived (after
an eminous silem:e offour thiys, in which the_
state of things is changed'very much by. the
news of the v ictories on the Rio Grande !) by
one from Mr. Marcy, speaking for the Presi.
detit. In this no attention is paid to Gen.
Scott's views respecting the prosecution of the
war : although they clearly show him to be' I
most iudustridatly engaged in preparations
to take file field persentql . v—but he is iinnie- I
diately -pounced - upon - by -- the - Secretary - mr
(;asting gross' and 'disrespectful; reflections:.
upon the President, and charged with impu
ting to hOn the "precondemnatioii,".&c.-to
which Gen. Scott f anodes. The Secretary,
therefore, with an evilent sensation of
sure, fully betrayed in. his letter, informs Gen.
Scott that " tho President would -probably
misunderstand his ohjeet . in writing his letter
if he-ditl-not , atonce relieve aim from the pro
posed command of the Army." Gen. Scott
is- accordingly ordered to remain in Wrath
luglon. W holier a veteran soldier convicted
of the fault of writing hastily and with too
much , Ny,Hrmth under tee impulse of injured
f e elings, should be thus severely rebuked, ;t
will be for the public to judge.
To Mr. Man•y's letter, as above, t;e n
replies, and most earnestly dlselaiins the con
struction given to his language by the Secre
tary. • Ile denies having in his allusion to
"'high quarters," meant the President, and
begs to say that his complaints on the con
trary referred to the Secretary himself, and to
44te-Imewtt-,-Open-sed-v-ielent condemn' •
of him (Gen S.) upon the part of several
leading and supposed - confidants of the Pre
sident in the two Flstlums of be
cause;" adds aeti. Scott, " because on an
intimation-:-notM ;ants —fidid not fly to the
Ric) Grande, without waiting for the invading
- , ._yetici he rai.eil,—nny abandouin_ it_
to ger,,talliat. ri‘'er as it 'Could, and withou t
the lernit regard to the honorable pride 'and
distinction of thrigallant General' already hi
command, on that river; who we knew had
done: we l l, was doing well, and who, I am
and hie little army, would, if the
oeiusion offered, aver : themselves with glo

whetherit shall be. the trleasure of the Pt e
sident to serid;ine to the Rio Grande, (whlch
I prefer,* ay retain me here, I an onlysay
I ain equally ready to do my duty in either
position , with all .rny zeal and all ability.) ,

general eiplanations. Gen. Scat replies to
