Unctions do I regal d the late prompt war measures
of Congress and the President, and the noble-hear

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.
I do not wish to have the place of any General

Important from the South
Norfolk (Va.) Herald, of the 2d inst., has
been favoured with the following extract
of a letter to a gentleman in that city,
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
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
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
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•
"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! I"
