Not the least of these dui- Unctions do I regal d the late prompt war measures of Congress and the President, and the noble-hear ted Louisianians, and the other wliole-souled Wes tern•. and Southern men, in not only indirectly, but expressly, generously, and unanimously approving my conduct in having for many months urged the adoption of the principal measures which have re cently been carried as by acclamation.

Important from the South LATE AND INTERESTING FROM TAMPI. CO-ATTACK. UPON TEAT PLAcc.—The Norfolk (Va.) Herald, of the 2d inst., has been favoured with the following extract of a letter to a gentleman in that city, dated, U. S. SHIP ST. MARY, I Off Tampico, June 13th, 1846. The war grows apace. On the Bth inst. we disccvered the enemy erecting anoth er fmt ott the North sile of the entrance to the river, and at one o'clock P. M., we got the ship under weigh under topsail, stood in, and when within a mile of the fort and gun boats, the latter 8 in number, tonning about one hundred, opened a fire upon them both. Being on a lee shore and a shoal water, we tv,l.e not able to fire more than eight shot, before it becoin, ne cessary to claw off, which we did ;. out at 3 o'clock, returned, and continued the firiny: until we had fired 70 shells, and `29 anti solid shot. In the lost rencontre, the ..-nemy returned our fire, with oboe' 10 shot from 18 pound guns, 4 of which pas sed near us, 2 fell directly under our itfm , toot," one paNeil betv. - een the fore and main top•mast, and one over the foot, the others fell at a distance. Tlie first shen :itch burst over the fort ejected every soldier I. mn the neighttor hood; the whole of them Mking imiaediate ly to the woods. One of our shells pas ,ed one of the schooner's masts, and ex ploded beyond her, a fragmc at having struck the bowsprit and bull works, tearing beta consiilerably, as we have learned, since the fight. One corner of the cus.. torn house was knocked houSz On th, north side of the river, was fired by the explosion of a shell ; and a soldier at the Fort on guard, by the bursting of another shell, exchanged his musket for vacancy, it having been shattered, without, I believe; injuring his ' , doable person. Having driv en the party, from the embryo fort, we reb turned to our anchorage at (tall past three o'clock. We were nut satsfied,hoWever, with this engagement ; for yesterday we projected a plan for cutting out our gunboats, and ac cordingly at dusk, hoisted out all boats, ar. rived there, the launch having a 9 pound in the bows, and at 103 o'clock P. NI., gut under weigh, and brought the ship nearer the shore, about 14 miles oft. It takes a longer time to descirbe the minutiae ol this affair, than 1 can deVote to it nosti. We had desired to make the attack before the moon tose, but could not. At I I o'clock she was lifting her head above the horizon, when oar 5 boats left the ship, every thing being previously arranged by our gallant Captain.—Mind you, we not only had the difficulty of capturing 3 heavy gunboats with SO or more turn on each, and quell a Fort, of which we had to pass within 50 yards, but there was a dangi•rous bar to be crowed, but first to be found. IVe pulled into the shore with muffled Oars,a literally feeling our way, for at one time we would be quite in the breakers, and then too tar see-ward, with a strong tide beneath and a bright moon above us, every thing seeming to conspire against our daring expedition. In seeking our way to the mouth of the river we were obliged to pass near the shore fur a distance of 200 yards, and the noise consequent upon the difficulty of finding our way through a pas sage of which we knew nothing, betrayed us to the sentinels along the shore, who rapidly communicated with the encamp ment, and it conveyed intelligence to the gunboats, so that unknown to us, our foe was watching our every movement. However at about 1, A. M., we had die , covered the narrow enterance to the month of the river, and were pulling in, when,'. within 200 yards of the Fort, near which we had to pass, much to our surprise, as you may imagine, bang! went a dozen mus- ' kets, and the balls whizzed about our ears: We laid on our oars, and in 5 minuted af ter the firing comtnenced, the guns in the launch were trained and "let drive." A girt rather heavier, from one of the gun boats, succeeded to this ; the shot passed clear of us, and the gun in the launch was loaded and tired again, when the firing on shore ceased. There were also fired from the lauuch a few carbines. At this time we i,,hl not passed the point, and Oer getiinA inside w , should have been obliged to pull at least 830 yds before reaching the object of our expedi tion. Th. enemy being already on the alert and with superior force, it would have I been almost madness to proceed, s:,tl the ' object would not hav:: compensated for the ,sitc.fice we should hive made. Bettioes. .toe passage through which we had to pass was not wide enough to admit the boats ex cept in sing' • tile. FO t the gonimats 'would have rakco us fore and aft before we could hen come alongside of them, If we had passed the Fort I believe we should have carried the boats to a certainty. We hall with us 85 men and marines ; the I st and 2(1 Lieutenants, Master, and all the Mills, except two. We returned tO, the ship at 2, A.M., much fatigued and disap pointed. I will write -by this con veyance, and tell you of the next day's flight. Yours. Dreadful Shipw - reck—Thity Lives Lost ! A slip from the office of the Newport Herald and Rhode Islander, dated Satur day, '2 7 inst., gives the particulars of a most melancholy shipreck, which occur red in the Vineyard on the 26th. The slip says:— The news of the loss of the brig SCR ledge, Capt. Graham, of and from Plasm, N. S., from Fall River, was received here this morning, about half past o'clock, by the arrival of the schooner Dusky Sally, Capt. Wilder, of and from Hingham. On the arrival of the schooher at Stevens's wharf, the information rapidly spread to all parts of the town, and the fearfully appalling scene presented, was one the like of which our inhabitants have seldom had occasion to witness. On the deck lay the dead bodies of tho%e who had been picket up from the wreck, surrounded by their kindred and friends, who had been rescued from a watery grave, giving vent to their feelings in the most agonizing manner. The following particulars of the loss bf the brig, we received front the Captain, who was among the survivors :—The Brig Sutlegde, of and from Pietro', for Full Riv er, sailed on the 12th of June, with.s6 pas• sensor,--men, woman, and children. Oa the evening of the 26th, at 8 o'clock, it be ing thick and foggy came to anchor ; and at 2 o'clock next morning got under way, and about halt past 3 struck on a ledge of rocks, in the Vineyard, called the Sow and P igs, soon after which the tide having caus ed-her to slew round, she backed off the Ledge, filled, and went down ; bow first, in ten fathoms of water. Previous to her going doe n, the mate was sent below, for ward, to ascertain if the b,:g leaked, butlhe discoverd nothing that loolied like it.— The pump was then ordered to be sound ed, but before that could be done, water was reported in the forecastle. The boat was then got out, andlhe pas sengers rushed intoit, when the Captain have orders to shove her from the He then jumped overboard, and swain to the boat, and kept her as close to the brig as possible, picking up such as jumped into the water. Th e whole number picked up by the Captain's boat was 31 alive. The schooner Dusky Sally being near, sent her boat to assist, and succeeded in saving six more alive, who were in the water, and 5 more from the rigging of the sunken brig. Sixteen 'lend betties, 4 women and 12 chil tire, Were . alio picked up by the two boats, which, together with the survivors, were put on board the D. S., and brought to this place, as above stated. The captain also states that another vessel was at the same time picking up what was adrift from the wreck, &c. . . The passengers were all r oreignPra mostly Scotch, and, we understand, were on their way to Pennsylvania, were they expected to find etnpkiyment in the Min , . lug establishments.. The Demand from Mexico. The Washington Union, in the course of an article on the Mexican War, says that the objects . of the Administration are "reparation, justice, peace," and pro• ceeds: "1n view of these objects, before the war can close Mexico must relinquish (ter ab surd territorial pretentious—must provide for the lull payment of the indemnity o hich she ows to our citizens—must render us full justice in every respect—and, finally. must establish peace with us upon emit (ions and garantees which shall secure its permanance. 'this much of the purposes of the adminstratron we gain from the character of its recent action, and front all its public declarations. Beyond this point we do not intend to proceed. Nor do we believe, that the country will ask of this administration, at this juncture, to the midst of war, to say anything more of its plans of pacification. 11'e wage a war against the war party of Mexico to secure a jUst peace. No other than a just peace can be concluded. This nation will sanc tion no other. When Mexico shall plotter any terms of peace, she will he heard.— When she shall proffer suitable terms, they will be accepted. 'Fill this be done, our war will march steadily and vigorously Ott wit twill ascend the table lands of Mexi co...-. it will march from province to prov ince, and from stronghold to stronghold, until finally it shall dictate to Paredes, or to any successor, if need be, a compulsory peace, on proper terms, within the walls of his capita!

The citizens of Dayton and viciuity, wcl( recollect, that on the Bth of August last, received seriou injury from the explosiod of a cannon. A portion of its contents en tered my right.side and .breast, and in all probability, snipe frauments.or splinters of the rem-rod passed through the 'plum' and pierced the lungs. After the lapse of six weeks, I wasat tacked with a distressing cough and vim; lent pain in my right side. Some ten days after this, when in a paroxysm of coughing, suddenly .an ulser broke, and a large quan tity of offensive matter, mixed with blood, was discharged, most of which found pas sage through the opening of the wound : from this opening there frequently passed. a quantity of air, supposed to issue from the lungs, During all, this time my sufferings were almost intolerable. My physicians, merinwhilt, paid the strieteat attetition to me and did all in their power for my recovery. But with all their skill they could uut reach the,seat of dis tress, after the lungs had become affected: I was Visited during this time by at least twolti physicians. It was . ndw reduced to it certainty, thci inflaMation of the lungs was rapidly taking place, and that this would terminate my lite in a short time; was In the Wiliest degree probabl?. At this critical state, a messenger wa dispatched to Cincinnati, and a celebrated physician, of that place was consulted. When he was made acquainted with tny, situation, he remarked that nothing could be done by medical aid, if the constiution itself was nut Sufficient to throw off the disease. My friends now despaired of my recov ery, and had ho earthly ground of hope to survive many days. Fortunately at this juncture I saw one of Dr. \Vista'. spainplt4 lets, entitled 'Family Medical Gazette' or treaties on Consumption of the lungs, and had often heartl,of dying men 'catching at straws;' !felt like doing so myself. By the consent of my physicians, I sent to You for a bottle of medicine describeiLviz tar's Balsam of wild Cherry," which re/ lieved me alinos.t inuneiliately.. After I had used some sor 6 bottles.
