Exploits of a Gallant Young Zferser
ARMY OF OCCUPATION', April 25.
It gives me pleasure to report, what I know it will
give you and your readers pleasure to hear, an ex
ploit performed by a young Newarker attached to
the Army—a young son of Gilbert Dudley, one of
the constables of your city, now only about 19
years of a g e.
Returning two days ago from ono of our most
advanced pickets, whither he had been sent to con
vey orders, ho came unexpectedly upon two Mex
ican soldiers, who bad apparently, just rowed across
• _ _
the river, and were refreshing themselves in a cool
shade. having placed their muskets in thoughtless
security against a neighboring tree. Gilbert was
equal to the emergency ; he sprdng to the muskets,
throw one upon the ground, and stepped upon it,
while with the other he menaced the lives of his
opponents. They cowered beneath his eagle glance,
and reluctantly pursued the course which ho indi
cated: He carried the two muskets upon his left
shoulder, drew his sword as a sort of pacificator,
rind thus marched them, at a respectful distance in
advance, straight into camp
From them some desirable information was ob.
tained, after which they were led blindfolded out
of camp; eel safely in their boat and dismissed.—
, When Gilbert was asked how he was able to make
such a double-prize, he gave the Paddy's reply, and
said, " Faith, I surrounded 'em !" This exploit,
clearly in the way of his duty, has rendered him
quite famous among us, and it will gratify you to
know, that he is so well liked, that he is not envied.

MANSFIELD'S LIFE OF
Wa have been greatly interested in the recently
published life of Gen. Scott. It is not solely or
chiefly the distinguished part which he took in the
war of 1812, though with the exception of Gen.
Jackson no one acted in that contest a more honor
able and distinguished part. Amongst tho brave,
he was always foremost. He in fact might be called
the hero of tho Niagara frontier, so gallant was his
bearing on those hard fought fields. Nowhere,
during the whole war, was there such a succession
of bloody actions or so large a proportion of the
troops engaged numbered among the killed or woun
ded. The Battles of Queenstown, of Chippewa,
and of Niagara (called also Lundy's Lane) brought
into requisition all the personal courage of both
officers and men, while it displayed on the part of
the former, great military skill. In the first-men
tioned action, Gen. Scott was taken prisoner, and
in the last twice severely wounded. It was in con
sequence of the dangers then encountered that he
was enabled without loss of character, even among
his military brethren, to decline the proffered duel
with Gen. Jackson, a refusal which men of peace
must count not among the least of his well earned
Yet distinguished as Gen. Scott has been in the
field, he has gained rarer and other laurels. If It
is much to be great in war, it is more to bo great
in peace. If honor is duo to him who wins a battle,
or conducts a successful campaign, what is not due
to him who renders the fight unnecessary, who
averts the horrors of war and turns the threatened
campaign into rejoicings for Vence I do three sev
eral occasions, when the peace of the country was
threatened by the conduct of misguided citizens and
of inflamed partisans on both sides of the line, was
Gen. Scott sent into disturbed districts bearing the
olive branch, and on each occasion was greatly and
gloriously successful. Well may Virginia, whose
soil has been so prolific of great men, be proud to
enrol Gen. Scott on the list. Who among her
sons at the present day bears a more honored name?
Though a military man by education as well as by
profession, ho has fairly earned the title of pacifica
tor. In his whole career ho has been distinguished
by compassion for the unfortunate, and by courtesy

Ho conducted with great consideration and hu
manity the very difficult operation of removing the
Cherokees to their distant home, and for his treat
ment of them deserves the thanks of every friend
of the red man.
His mission to South Carolina during the prev
alence of the doctrines of nullification, was one of
extreme delicacy and importance, which, if entrust
ed to the hands of a bold and energetic, yet impru
dent man, might have ended in bloodshed. Gen.
Scott's firmness, prudence, courtesy and tact, may
have saved the nation at that time from civil war,
as they had not improbably before done from a for
eign contest. No qualities of Scott deserve higher
commendation than his candour, frankness and
moral courage. Memorable also are his declarations
in favor of peace principles: It is the highest moral
obligation to treat our national differences with
temper, justice, fairness; always to see that the
cause of war is not only jest hut sufficient ; to be
sure that we do not covet our neighbor's lands,
nor any thing that is his ;" that we are as ready
to give as to demand explanation, apology, indem
nity ; in short we should especially remember,—
All things whatsoever yo would that men should
do unto you, do ye even so to them."
We cannot better close this notice then by en

in the able and interesting work mentioned at the
head of this article.

with barbarous or half-civilized communal., we
doubt whether a brighter page can be found than
that which records his agency in the removal of the

"Courting" vs. "Attention."
This is a subject which, always Important, is
daily becoming peculiarly so and we design to call
the attention of the young people to it occasionally,
in the hope of arresting an alarming end destruc
Young ladies are bound to fall in lore as soon
as possible, and bound to be bound to a partner for
life, as soon as the necessary preliminaries can be
made—such as getting a lover, fascinating him
thoroughly, being courted, having tin. question pop
ped, getting the wedding garments in array, and in
viting friends to eeo them prettily married. The
young man is bound to be gallant and polite, and
to admire, without stint, all the pretty young girls
known and unknown—to doff the beaver, offer the
arm, invite to the ride, the pleasant saunter—in
short, to do all tile sundries needed to show his do
votion and gallantry towards the sex, until some
enchantress throws the spell around him, and he
sinks, subdued, into a common-place, indifferent,
Now out of these things grow difficulties. A
young man admires a pretty girl and must manifest
it, he can't help doing so for the life of him. The
young lady has a tender heart, reaching out like
vine tendrils for something to cling to, she sees the
admiration, is flattered, begins soon to love, expects
some tender avowal, and perhaps gets so far as to
expect that the she will choose a white satin under
a thin gauze, &c., at the very moment that the gal
last, that she half loves, is popping the , question to
another damsel ten miles off. Now the difficulty
lies in not precisely understanding the difference
between polite attentions, and the tender manifesta
tions uf sighing 1 . 6)e. Admiring a beautiful girl
and wishing to mako a Wife of her, aro not always
the same thing, and therefore it is necessary that a
damsel should be on the slat to discover to which
class the attentions paid her by handsome and fash
ionable young gentlemen belong. It is hard to
draw the exact line of separation between polite
attentions and downright courting, but our great
age and extensive experience have enabled us to ob
serve enough to old the young and artless in deci
ding this matter.
First, then—if a young fellow greets you in a
loud, free, and !tarty voice—if ho knows precisely
where to put his hat, or his hands—if Ire stares you
straight in the eye with his own wide open--if he
i'e'lis:yru who made his coat--if he squeezes your
hand—if he eats heartily in your presence—if ho fails
to talk very kindly of you r mother-if he sneezes when
you are singing,criticises your curls,or fails to be very
foolish in fifty ways every hour,then don't fall in love
with hint for the world; he only admires you,let him do
or say what else he will. But if he be merry with
every ono else, but quiet with you ; if he be anx
ious to see that your tea is sufficiently sweetened
and your dear person well wrapped up when you
go out in the cold ; if Le talks very low and never
looks you steady in the eye; if his cheeks aro red,
or if he be pale and his nose blueish it is enough ;
if he romps with your sister, sighs like a pair of
bellows, looks solemn when you aro addressed by
another gentleman, and in fact is the most still,
awkward, stupid, yet anxious of all your male
friends, you may go ahead and invoke the shaft of
Cupid with perfect safety and make the poor fellow
too happy for his skin to hold him.
There aro also a thousand other minor particulars
which a lady's wit will need no prompting upon,
but the foregoing are sure and safe tests. There is
no such trouble made in the world for want of un
derstanding this, that we have kindly volunteered
our advice in the matter, with the admonition to
keep their hearts in a case of good leather, or other
tough substance, until the .‘ right one" is found,
beyond doubt—after which they can go on and
love, court, be married and happy, without the least
bit of trouble.--Bodon Slat.
In a late number of the Foreign Quarterly He
view, the following anecdote is told to illustrate the
corruption of the magistracy :
A rich miller in the country was Axed upon by
three persons as a lit object to be plucked. It no
chanced that shortly before the time appointed for
the attack of his house, a party of travelling soldier.
had requested lodging. of him for the night, which
he had granted; and these soldiery were sleeping
above, when the robbers arrived and de.nanded hie
money. The miller told them he would ga and
fetch it; he awoke the soldiers, and with their ne
rd:Mince killed the three thieves and left them lying.
The next day, as it was proper the authorities
should be made acquainted with the circumstances,
he went to the house of the alcaile—rongistrate—
of his village, to call him to make his examinations.
The alcade was not at home; on finding which he
proceeded to the next in office, who was not at
home either. He then went on to the third, neither
was this one to be found, nor did any body know
anything of the three. At last, therefore, ho re
turned home and prepared to bury them himself,
when on taking oil' the masks which concealed
their faces, 10, and behold, there lay the three

Orleans papers of the I lth lust., containing the
following glorious news from the Army of Occupa
tion. In the language of the Commercial Times,
its reception " will copse the National pulse to vi

Our last previous accounts came down to Wed-
nesday the 29th ult. Capt. Walker, of Texas
Rangers, having come into Point Isabel on the e,.en
ing of the 28th ult., from his desporate encounter
"with tho Mexicans, had volunteered to Carey de
spatches, o Gen. Taylor. We now jearti by the
New York that in that desperate attempt—so des- 1
perate as to be thought fool hardy-he fully succeeded.
Gen. Taylor Taylor learned from trim the critical
situation in which Point Isabel was placed, and the
imminent danger of its being carried by an over
powering force of the Mexicans. He promptly de
termined upon a movement which should protect
Point Isabel, and re-establish Iris communication
with his supplies. Accordingly the evening of
Friday, the Ist inst.,ho left his camp, opposite Mat
emotes, with the main body of his forces, determin
ed to cut his way through, leaving behind trim for
the defence of the works opposite Matamoros be
tween 700 and SOO troops.

their troops about the camp which he had just left.
On the morning of the 3rd, Gen. Taylor de
spatched Capt. Walker back to the Camp for intel
ligence. The gallant Ranger executed his commis
elm with success, returning to Point Isabel the af
ternoon of the sth. Hereported that the Mexicans,
taking advantage of the supposed weakness of the
camp, commenced an attack upon it in front, the
morning of Sunday, the 3rd, with all their batteries
from the opposite side of the river, and simultane
ously with a detachment of their forces on this Bide
the Rio Grand, in the rear. The Americans hotly
returned the fire. The attack in the rear was im
mediately repulsed, and in less than thirty minutes
the Mexican batteries were silenced, and the city of
Matamoras battered down. The loss to the Mexi
cans in the action is variously set down. While
no account makes it less than 200, the latest report
in regard to it, which we find in the Golve,tton
News, carries it as high as 700. The Americans
lost but a single man, it is said, who was killed by
a shell. None were wounded—so admirable was
the state of the works before Gen. Taylor left them.
The town of Matatnoras is a complete ruin; there
I are scarcely houses enough loft standing to serve as
hospitals for the wounded.
'rho attack and repulse, however, is considered
but the opening of the campaign. Cannonading
was distinctly heard at times, down to the hour of
the departure of the New York. Gen. Taylor set
forth on the 6th inst., to return to hls camp with
ample supplies. The Galveston News shres that
when he left Point Isabel there was not the slight
est doubt entertained that he would have to cut his
way to his entrenchments through vastly arlparior
numbers of the enemy, wino were known to be posted
in large forces among the almost impassable thickets
of chaparal on the road, with a determination to
cut hint am if possible, in his attempt to regain his
other forces. The number of the Mexicans Is en
tirely vague and tincertriin, thought ll the itOtements
agree in estimating them at not less than ten thou
sand, While many accounts put their numbers at
15 ur 2t) thousand. All accounts agree also its sta
ting that the Mexican forces were rapidly flocking
in from all quarters. How many crossed the river
could not be told, though the News thinks it would
be reasonable to presume that a large part of their
forces would be brought into requisition to dispute
the march of Gen Taylor. rimy could not but
see rho importance of cutting hint off; and would
doubtless employ all their advantages of local knowl- ,
edge, skill in horsemanship and all their acknowl
edged resourcee in stratagem to accomplish their
object. Gen. Taylor anticipated a formidable and
desperate opposition to his march, but he dd.:reli
ned to accomplish it or perish.
Tina reasons the News, and accordingly antici
pates intelligence of a decisive general action. Wo
are greatly inclined to doubt whether the Mexicans
would venture to attack Gen. Taylor's whole force,
although they e o outnumber trim; hat should the . j
do so, wo or confident that we shell have ious
victory to recount. Ono account before ua ewes,
howeve:, that Gen. Taylor had Lot left i'oint Label
and probably would slut leave there before the ani•
val of further re-inforcements--he having full con
fidence in the ability of the troops 101 l in camp to
maintain their position against ovy odd.
The arrival of the New York at Point Isabel tvas
most opportune. It will be recollected that sho
had nearly 200 regular troops on board under Lieut.
McPhail, as well as several field pieces. These
were all safely landed. Even without the arrival
of further reinforcements, the poet at Point Isabel
must have been so strengthened as to place its safely
beyond reasonable doubt. Martial law has been
proclaimed there and at Santiago, and every man
pressed into the service. But ere this, further sup-
port has reached Point Isabel front this city and

out the country.
Col. II ay s, of the Rangers, with his force
of about 400 men stationed in the San An
tonio country, determined to march at
once for Gen. Taylor's camp as soon as
he learned that it was in a critical situa
tion ; nor asmild it surprise us to hear that
Harney, with his dragoons, had done
the same thing.
While Gen. Taylor was ai point llsabel
he despatched a sclwoner to Vet-a Cruz,
with intellegence of the proceedings upon
the Rio Grande. We PresuMe that Coin.
Conner will at once formally blockade
every Mexican port on the Galt.
With great pleasure we see it mentioned
in the Bulletin that tile commander of the
U.S. schooner Flirt having observed a
small encampment of Mexicans on the
island at the mouth of the Brazos Santiago,
and knowing the great danger or the point
at the .entrance of the harbor bring in

his men and dispersed the camp. The
Ireader will recollect that the utmost feat
war felt that the Mexicans might fortify
a position here which would command the
approach to Point Isabel.
