THE mExic.axs—saArTa Jura
MJIND 0 dir THE .m - Exicaxs
By the arrival of the Galveston, at
New Orleans, the Picayune and Delta
have received letters from Monterey,
from the let to the 16th October.
Lt. Graham, of the 4th Infantry, died
on the evening of the 11th of October,
universally lamented. The wounded,
generally, are doing well. Hopes are
entertained that Maj. Lear, of the 3d
Infantry, may recover, although so ter
ribly wounded. We are sorry to learn
that fever and ague are beginning to
prevail extensively in the army. The
accounts we have from the troops in the
valley of the Rio Grande are truly dis
In the Matamoras Flag we have por
tions of a correspondence between Gen.
Taylor and the Governor of Monterey,
in which the former gives an indication
of the policy to be pursued in regard to
the subsistence of the army.
After the capitulation, Gov. Morales
liacl a conversation with Gen. Taylor,
and subsequently Col. Whiting, Q. M.
General, addressed the following note to
the Governor, with reference to the sub
jects of that conversation:
" Gen. Taylor orders me to address
your Excellency upon various matters
en reference to the conversation had
with you the other morning, when visit
* his camp.
" He desires, in particular, that you
will order the inhabitants of this pro
vince to furnish mules for burden be
tween this place and Camargo. Though
we have a good number now employed,
yet many more are needed.
" He also charges me particularly to
say to your Excellency, that you will
request or command the inhabitants to
bring in their corn, and deposit the same,
to a considerable amount, in the city. It
is necessary that this corn should be
brought in, and it must be, by your Ex
cellency's orders, or by force. If pro
cured by the first means, it will be paid
for at the same price the Mexican Go
vernment allows ; if by the second, the
owners may look to their own Govern.
ment for redress.
"You will please to inform one offi
cially (we wish a speedy reply) what
are •the current prices of transporting
each mule load from Camargo to this
city, and the prices which the Mexican
Government have been paying for corn
this season."
To this note of Col. 11hiting, Gov.
Morales replies as follows:
" Since this Government had the
pleasure of conferring with Gen. Tay
lor, upon various subjects of importance,
they have taken due measures to accom
plish your desires relotive to the accu
mulation of corn and removal of effects
from Camargo, belonging to the Ameri
can army. I have to inform you that
corn will be furnished (as much as can
be gathered) at $5 per mule load, and
also mules for burthen as soon as they
arrive from the interior, where they
have been sent on business, but ordered
to return forthwith, with the understand
ing that the current prices for freight
from this city to Cerralvo is two dollars
and fifty cents per mule load; to Car
mago $5;-to Cadareyta $1 50: the same
to the estates of Dolores and Concep
tion, which are below Cadareyta."
" Such being the case, you will please
signify the same to Gen. Taylor, adding
at the same time, that it will not be ne
cessary to use force in procuring the
objects indicated, for there is no lack of
desire to serve."
In this reply of the Government to
Col. Whiting, it will be seen that they
do not state the price which the Mexi
can government has been paying for
corn, etc., but merely answers at what
price it will be furnished our army ; at
$5 per mule load. This is just double
what the Mexican government pays;
$2 50 per cargo being the standard
price. So with the charges on burden
mules. But the Government has our
army in a tight place, and they are re
solved to speculate on our necessities.
Our worthy alcalde has sent him an ex
ample, and probably given him his cue.
The corn market here has been fore
stalled by this worthy gentleman, who
has purchased, all in the neighborhood,
and fi'ed his price upon it. Such spec
ulations by Governors and alcaldes will
not long be allowed—they will or should
be made to disgorge some of their accu
mulations without pay.
Col. W., however, looks upon the re
ply of Gqv. Morales as satisfactory, and
answers him thus:
" Col. Whiting has the honor to ac
knowl'edge the receipt of the satisfac
tory note from Gov. Morales, dated yes
terday, relative to corn and mules of bur
den, and he has the honor to inform him
that, for the, convenience of those who
bring in corn, Capt. Sibley, the adjutant
of Col.- W. in Monterey, will receive
and pay -for all that is introduced on de
posite, according to the price stipulated
upon by Gov. Morales."
On the..29th of September, the Gov
ernor addressed Gen. Taylor the follow
ing note :
" Multitudes of complaints have been
made to this Government against exces
ses committed upon persons and prop
erty of Mexicans daily, by the volun
teers in the service of the United States,
and I am this moment informed that
three of our citizens have been killed by
them, without pity or any reasonable
motive, only because they possess the
power to do so. Under such circum
stances, it is impossible that society can
remain in much security, as the most
essential guarantees are wanting. I
have the honor of making this known to
your Excellency, hoping that measures
will be adopted to put an end to such
atrocities in future, and carry into effect
the assurances given of protection to
the people."
On the Ist of October, Gen. Taylor
addressed the following reply to Gov.
'Morales :
" The communication of your Excql
lency, dated 28th ult., relative to exces
ses committed on volunteers, in the city
of Monterey, was duly delivered. Some
delay has oecurred in answering it, in
order that I might communicate with
the commandant of that post.
"It is with sentiments of regret that
I learn your just cause of complaint,
founded upon the grounds stated by your
Excellency. Your Excellency must be
aware that it is no easy task to keep
such men in subjection, and although
my great desire is to maintain good or
der, yet excesses have been.committed,
but, I believe, none of grave character.
The volunteers now in the city will
be removed in a few days, and by their
absence I hope that all cause of farther
complaints will cease. In the mean
time Brig. Gen. Worth will use all effi
cacious measures to maintain order in
the city. He is now invested with or
ders to this effect. Your Excellency .
must be aware that it is my desire to
comply with the guarantees I have given
in the name of my Government, relative
to the security of persons and property."
We are indebted to the Picayune and I
Delta for the following extracts from ,
their correspondence, dated, Monterey :
—The retailers of ardent spirits have
nearly all been ferretted out and corn
pelted to vamos or shut up shop. A'
number of Mexicans have been murder- I
ed in the outskirts of the city within
the last two days, by some of the out
laws who have attached themselves to
the volunteers. Yesterday afternoon
two Mexican officers, who were leaving
the city, called on Gen. Worth. Soon
after leaving him, and just after passing
through the middle plaza, the orderly of
one of them, who rode a short distance
behind, was shot through the heart, by a
discharged volunteer Ranger. The feel
ings of the army were very much out
raged by this diabolical act. The per
petrator of the foul deed is now in limbo,
and will, I trust, be hung. An order
has just been issued by Gen. Worth di
recting every person not belonging to
the army, or who is not a citizen of the
place, to report to his A. A. Adjutant
General of Division within twenty-four
hours. This will settle all irregularities,
as, under this order, the discharged vol
unteers will be obliged to leave the town ,
and vicinity. Sentinels are placed at
every avenue leading to the town, on the
Northern and Eastern sides, day and
night, and are instructed to allow no
person but commissioned officers to pass
in and out, except by the street that
leads to Fort Independence. The guard
is necessarily very large. The ceremo
ny of guard mounting is performed for
the whole division at the main plaza.—
This morning the division guard was as
large as some of the regiments. The
reaction that has taken place in the army,
upon settling down quietly after so much
fatigue and excitement, is really painful
in its effects. There are few here whose
hearts do not ache to see their homes
and families.
The weather begins to admonish us
that winter is not far off. The mornings
are quite cool, rendering overcoats, and
even fires very comfortable. Everything
begins to assume a quiet aspect in this
region. The troops are entering into
quarters for the next two mouths—the
wounded are receiving every attention
from the surgeons, and are placed in ex
cellent rooms—the ammunition is nearly
removed from the Cathedral, (a magnifi
cent building outside and in) and reli
gious services will soon be performed in
it. The shops, billiard rooms, eating
houses, and mechanic shops are open
ing again. Families are returning, con
fidence has taken the place of distrust
towards us with the Mexicans, and I be
lieve that a majority of the best people
here are glad that our army has driven
off Ampudia and his thievish soldiers.
Lieut. Armstead, of the 6th Infantry,
has just arrived from Washington with
despatches for Gen. Taylor, but the in
structions sent him are not known in
the army.
A mail which was sent from Camargo
by a Mexican express rider for the army,
about the 21st ult., and which, it is be
lieved, contained important despatches
for Gen. Taylor, besides many private
letters, was taken by the enemy and con
veyed to A►npudia, who received it on
the day of capitulation. Whether the
Mexican mail rider was killed, as is pre
tended, or carried the mail of his own
accord to Ampudia, is not known ; but
certain it is that the mail is in posses
sion of the enemy. After the Mexican
army had retired to Saltillo, Gen. Tay
lor hearing of the loss of the mail, sent
a messenger to Ampudia and requested
him to return the private correspondence.
The self-appointed Postmaster General
of our army replied, through ti Mr. Faul
lac, that a mail bag had been taken and
received by him, but that ho had for
warded the bag to Santa Anna. Mr.
Faunae, however, hoped soon to have
the pleasure either of sending back the
private correspondence or of bringing it
in person.
Santa Anna is at San Lois Potosi, but
is doing nothing. He sustains Ampu
dia in his late conduct. The fever and
ague is spreading through the army at
a fearful rate.
A Scotchman who has resided for a
long time in this country, showed me a
letter this morning, dated at Monterey
on the 18th ult., in which it is stated
that the Governor of New Leon, with
most of the families, had left Monterey
and gone to a village in the mountains ;
that all the Mexican forces had fallen
back from Rinconada and Saltillo, and
were moving on to San Luis Potosi—
and that a Mexican who was carrying
despatches from Camargo to Gen. Tay
lor, had been captured between Marin
and Monterey, taken to Saltillo, and
there shot by order of Ampudia—the
despatches being sent post-haste to San
Luis Potosi, where it is said Santa Anna
now is. Nothing certain is know of the
future intentions of the Mexican Gen
eral. Mexican traders affirm that all
the troops are withdrawn from Saltillo,
and ate concentrated at San Luis Potosi,
at which place Santa Anna has arrived,
and where they intend to administer to
the Americans their long deferred but
constantly threatened chastisement. I
do not, however, place credence in these
stories, as I have recently conversed
with an American gentleman, a resident
of Monterey, who arrived here a few
. days since directly from San Luis. He
informs me that the enemy are busily
engaged fortifying the pass of Los Mu
ertos, where they will desperately resist
any approach to Saltillo.
The northers that have prevailed here
for some time, have had the good effect
of allaying the fever, and bracing up
those in the hospitals who were com
pletely helpless from its effects. More
than one half of those who were on the
doctor's list two weeks ago, have gained
sufficient strength to join their regiments
and those left are recovering very fast.
When the first norther came, it carried
off most of those who were very low—
but its good effects on others was very
sudden. Two or three of the hospitals
are now without patients, and the houses
are about being turned over to their
owners. Application was made to Gen.
Worth, commanding the city, a few days
since, for permission to publish an Eng
lish newspaper, which was refused on
the grounds of being in violation of the
wishes of the Government at home.
Some Mexicans arrived here on the
10th ult., who state that the citizens of
Saltillo, objected to Ampudia's fortifying
the town, and that lie would take up his
march for San Luis Potosi as soon as he
could procure pack mules. An express
arrived here from Washington on the
evening of the 10th ult. fifteen days
from Washington, as I learn, with in
structions to the commanding General
to prosecute the war with renewed vigor;
therefore we have every reason to be
lieve, that as soon as supplies can be got
here, the army will probably direct its
attention towards Linares, as that town
does not come within the line of the
The following is from the Galveston
News :—From Col. Davis we learn that
the Mexicans have totally evacuated the
whole country this side of San Luis Po
tosi. The information has been derived
from so many sources that there is no
doubt of this fact. They left behind
some forty dragoons to destroy fortifi
cations that had been constructed at Los
Muertos, a naturally strong and difficult
pass on the road to Saltillo, and about
five or six miles beyond the Rinconada.
They have also dismantled Saltillo, des
troying whatever might be of use to our
army, and which they could not take
away. Thus there is now nothing left
for Gcn. Taylor to conquer but a barren
region of rugged mountains and thirsty
plains, affording neither water nor pro
visions for the subsistence of man or
beast, over a distance of two or three
hundred miles to San Luis Potosi.
The New Orleans Commercial Times,
in referring to the letters of its corres
pondent, says:—
By far the most important information
communicated by our correspondent is
the fact, hitherto rumored, but now defi
nitely ascertained, that the Mexicans
are withdrawing from Saltillo, and will
not attempt to defend that town, but will
fall back on San Luis Potosi. If any
doubt, whatever, existedof the accuracy
of this intelligence, it will be removed
when we state that we received yester
day private advices from the city of
Mexico, so late as the 25th of Septem
ber, which state that Santa Anna had
' left the capital that morning with 2,000
cavalry and 1000 infantry, for San Luis
Potosi ; and that positive instructions
had been despatched to the army of the
, North not to occupy Saltillo, but to re
treat immediately to San Luis.
The dictator had been utterly unsuc
cessful in his attempts to raise a loan of
two millions on a mortgage of the rev
enues of the church, as the lien was con
sidered by capitalists insecure, if not
illegal. He then applied for $200,000,
but could only raise $27,000, which was
the sum total with which he started.—
Hence, perhaps, the comparative mea
greness of his military . escort. It was
known in Mexico, at the last dates, that
the American army had reached Mon
terey ; Moreover, the best informed par
ties in the capital were of opinion that
the attack of our troops would be suc
cessful, as the movement of Gen. Worth
on the Saltillo road was fully understood,
and its importance duly appreaiated.
The official number of killed and
wounded is 490.
Affairs at Nauvoo, Illinois.
A letter to the St. Louis (Mo.) Union
says . !, _ _ _
In my last letter I intimated that
His Excellency, Gov. Ford, had called
out the militia of the State, and that he
intended to take effective measures to
put a stop to the foul spirit of mobocra
cy which so long reigned in Hancock.
He remained in Carthage during yester
day, and while there had an interview
with the mob leader, Gen. Brockman,
who gave His Excellency to understand
they felt justified in all their proceed
ings, and were fully prepared to do the
same again=that they were 'freemen,'
and should do just as they thought fit
under any circumstances ; in fact, he
put the Governor at defiance ; told him
the boys were on hand' at any time and
at any hour. To-day, Oct. 28, His Ex
cellency entered Nauvoo with about 200
men, 2 pieces of cannon, and a numer
ous train of wagon, &c.; but the Gover
nor's entree bore no comparison, in point
of number, with that of Brockman. The
'same silent, desolate scene awaited the
Governor, as the mobbers witnessed.
There was no joy or pleasure depicted
in the countenances of the people.—
There was ridicule from groups of those
friendly to the mob, among whom Brock
man was the most conspicuous, for the
bold and daring front he carried. It be
ing late in the evening, His Excellency
had not addressed the citizens as was
supposed he would; but, it is said, he
intends to place a strong posse in the
city until the Legislature meets in Jan
uary, and in the meantime to take such
steps as will tend to redeem some of the
past errors. The crisis has now arrived
whether the laws are to be respected, or
mob violence to be supreme. A short
time will decide."
J Com. John B. Nicholson, of the
U. S. Navy, died at Washington on the
10th inst., aged 63. He was a native of
Richmond, Va., and entered the Navy
as a midshipman in 1805, on board the
brig Hornet, then under the command of
the late Corn. Chauncy.
The Markets.
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 13, 1846
FLOUR & MEAL—The market for Bread
stuffs generally has been unsettled during the past
week, and the scarcity of vessels tended to depress
prices, and keep shippers from operating ; about 500
bbls Pour sold ou Saturday at $5 371 and after
the receipt of the Steamer's news, a speculative de
mand sprung up and 1000 bbls was taken at $5 50
ass 621, subsequently 1500 bbls sold at $5 75 ;
the high rates however, checked the demand for a
day or two, and the price again settled down ; 1200
bbls good brands sold at $5 621, and 3000 bbls fair
at $5 50, including halves at the usual difference;
the market closing quite dull, and factors nominally
asking $5 50 for standard brands. Sales for city
consumption limited and within the range of $5 50
as 6 for good and extra retailing brands. RYE
FLOUR scarce, and held at s4+; the only sales are
in a unroll way, at $44. Coax MEAL—The mar

22,000 bushels sold at 115 a 110 c for Reds, and
125 a 118 c for Whites, nearly all for grinding ; the
market has since declined, and to-day, about 20,000
bushels mostly Reds, were taken for shipment at

Let laurels flourish on thy broiv,
And wealth those laurels grace.

Thou conqueror of pain.
