The steamer Edith arrived at New
Orleans on the 2d inst. The news
brought by her from from the Army is
of the most important and exciting char
acter, It was reported that on the 16th
of December, an express from Gen.
Worth, at Saltillo, arrived at Monterey,
with intelligence that Gen. Worth had
learned through his spies, that Santa
Anna was within three days march of
Saltillo, at the head of an army of 20,-
000 or 30,000 men. It was added that
the•expresS bore a call upon Gen. Tay
lor for reinforcements; but that the
General and his staff had left Monterey
two days before, to join his command
at Victoria ; and that said command was
two days in advance of him. General
Butler, however, who had charge at Mon
terey, immediately sent off despatches
to Gen.. Marshall at Camargo, and to
Gen. Patterson, at Matamoras, to send
forward all the troops they could spare.
It was added, that 'Gen. Patterson had
left .Matamoras, only the day before the
news reached that place, that it was
nevertheless promptly forwarded to him,
and that on receiving it, be started on
his return, with a view of proceeding to
Monterey. But we have seen a letter
dated Matamoros, Dec. 23d, which men
tions. the alarming reports with regard
to Santa Anna's movement upon Saltillo,
but discredits them. It was affirmed
also ' that Gen. Patterson had not chan
gedhis route towards Victoria, and that
a portion of his troops had left that day.
These statements, it will be seen, are
conflicting ; and yet the accounts by the
express are PO detailed, and have such'
an air of probability, that they are at
least calculated to excite apprehension.
The. New Orleans Delta of the 2d, in
alluding to the intelligence, gives the
report that Santa Anna was at the head
of 15,000 troops, and within four days
of Saltillo--that en. Worth, unable to
maintain his ground against such over
whelming numbers, was slowly falling
back in the direction of Monterey ; and
that Gen. Taylor, in the anticipation of
tin attack upon that city, was fortifying
it on every point. This, it will be seen,
differs from the other rumor, to the effect
that Gen. Taylor had left Monterey for
Victoria. The Delta gives yet another
statement, thus :
" From Mr. Fowler, a gentleman of
this city, who came passenger in the
steam propellor Virginia, and who left
.Saltillo on the 17th ult., we have subse
quently learned that, previous to his
leaving, Gen. Worth's spies had come
into camp and reported that Santa Anna
was within three or four days' march of
Saltine, and rapidly advancing, at the
head of about 15,000 men. Gen. Worth
immediately sent an express to Gen.
Taylor, which reached him at Victoria
at 11 o'clock, P. M. on the 17th ; and at
3 o'clock, A. M., the next day General
Taylor despatched two regiments, the
Kentucky and Tennessee volunteers, to
reinforce Gen. I%Tortlt at Saltillo, inten
ding to follow himself as soon as pos
sible, with all his disposable force. Gen.
Taylor felt confident of his loging able
to arrive at Saltillo before Santa Anna
could reach there. The whole force of
Gen. Taylor would then amount to
about 10,000 men, which he considered
sufficient to cope with any force that
Santa Anna could bring against him."
. Gen. Scott arrived at the Brazos on
the 28th ult.
Later from the Army.
By the Southern Mail we have later
dates from the army, which reached N.
Orleans by the arrival there of the
steamship Alabama.
She left the Brazos on the 3d, at which
date there was no news of especial in
terest from Saltillo, from which it was
inferred that the danger of an attack
was not so imminent as supposed, whet►
Gen. Worth's express was despatched.
The remains of Watson, Ridgely,
and other Baltimoreans, had arrived at
New Orleans.
Lieut. Boyle, of Washington, died on
the passage.
The dates from Matamoras are to the
Ist inst. Since the last dates rumors
of battles—marches and countermarches
Wool's column cut oft—Worth's divis
ion driven back to Monterey from Sal
tillo—that he and Gen. Taylor were shut
up in Monterey, have prevailed.
Gen. Scott and his staff left two days
previous, in great haste, for Camargo.—
In going up the river they met a steam
er with a mail bringing intelligence that
part of the corps of observation, belong
ing to Santa Anna's army, had been near
Parras, where Wool was, and that Wool
had joined Worth at Sa ltillo.
Gen. Patterson's division had crossed
the river San Fernando five days pre
vious, and would soon be at his desti
Gen. Taylor, it was thought, would
no doubt return home as soon as Gen.
Scott takes command.
When Gen. Patterson reaches Victo
ria all the passes to San Luis will be
shut up.
Advices have been received from Tam
pico to the 30th ult.. Everything was
then quiet and orderly.
The rumors of attacks upon Tampico
were considered as only Mexican tales.
On the 20th of December, Corn. Perry,
with several vessels, took possession of
Laguna, and destroyed the guns & mu
nitions of war found in the 'port and
Coin. Sands, with two vessels, had
ibeen left in charge. Off the Alvarado
the Plississippi captured the Mexican
schooner Amelia, and sent her to New
Purser Crosby had been killed on
board the Viven, by accidentally falling
from aloft. .
Santa Anna has been declared by the
new Congress, as duly elected Presi
dent by the Republic.
From a further examination of the
files of Mexican papers, it appears that
no direct action was had upon the sub
ject of the war by the Mexican Con-
The Mexican papers convey a strong
impression that San Luis is to be the
great battle-ground of the war.
Gen. Jessup and his staff, together
with 240 sick and discharged soldiers,
came passengers in the Alabama.

An Abstract from the Report of the State
This is a document of more than ordi
nary interest and importance, especially
nt the present moment, when anxiety is
felt as to the prompt payment of the
semi-annual interest on the State Debt.
The receipts during the last fiscal
year, amounted to $3,529,057.
Balance in the Treasury, Nov. 30th,
1845, $384,886.
Total revenue, $3,913,943.
Expenditures for the same' period,
Thus die balance in the Treasury on
the 30th of Nov. 1846, was $384,678.
The Treasurer states that during the
year, the Treasury has not only been in
a condition to meet all the demands upon
it, including the interest on the public
debt, but a portion of that debt has been
discharged, viz: the sum of $246,816.
The important result is also exhibited,
that the receipts within the fiscal year,
were equal to the expenditures, without
regard to any sum in the Treasury at
the commencement of the year. This
is indeed a gratifying statement, honor
able alike to the Commonwealth, the
people and the State Treasurer.
During the last two years, the taxes
imposed have been cheerfully & prompt
ly paid, no loans have been made, the
public liabilities have been met, and the
State revenues have increased.
Col. Snowden estimates that the rev
enues in all, for the present fiscal year,
will amount to $4,026,178 ; while the
expenditures will amount to but $3,447,-
058. And that thus, the balance in the
Treasury on the 30th of November,
1847, will amount to upwards of $579,
The public debt is $40,739,577.
During the year, the receipts from the
public improvements amounted to $l,
The entire expenditures on the public
works for the same period, $732,067.
Net receipts, $625,135.
This amount exhibits the actual re
ceipts in payment at the Treasury, with
out reference to the amount reported by
the Canal Officers.
The fiscal yenr closed on the 30th of
The above aggregate of profits was
applied, with the other revenues of the
State, to the payment of the interest on
the public debt, and the general expen
ses of the State Government.
The amount of relief notes in circu
lation on the Ist of January last, was
The loans which are due, or will fall
due in the current year, and for which
no provision is made, except so far as
the relief notes are provided for, amount
to $3,438,030.
There are thirty-seven separate loans,
which compose the State Debt; and the
Treasurer recommends that they be con
solidated into a less number. Also that
coupons should be attached to the con
solidated or new stocks, should such be
issued, and to the new transfers of the
old stock. Also that these coupons be
made receivable for all dues for the Com
With regard to the interest due in
February, the Treasurer states that the
matter will depend upon the amount of
receipts for the present month of Jan
uary; and he remarks that if a deficit
should occur, the interest can he paid as
on former occasions, inasmuch as a con
siderable portion is not immediately de
manded, and by proper measures, some
of the accruing revenues mny be antici
pated. He thinks, moreover, that a de
ficiency at a particular period, cannot
interfere with the general result as esti
mated, namely—that for the year, the
revenue, if faithfully collected, will not
only .be adequate to the expenditures,
but reduce the existing debt, and leave
a balance in the Treasury, of $579,119.
Tampico under Martial Law.
The New Orleans Delta of the 30th
ult. says :---" Capt. Hardy, of the Fehr.
H. M. Johnson, from Tampico, on the
18th inst., informs our Reporter that
Col. Gates, the commandant at Tampi
co, had proclaimed the place to be tin
der martial law on the 15th inst. On
the 16th arms were distributed to all
the American citizens in the place, in
cluding captains of vessels in port and
sailors. Col. Gates having had cause to
suspect that the Mexicans had arms
concealed in the place, instituted a search
for them, and discovered about six
dred stand and a quantity of ammuni
tion ; about 300 of the muskets were
found to be loaded. The whole mili
tary force at Tampico on the 16th,
amounted to from Bto 900 men. The
steamship Virginia arrived from Brazos
with 320 men of the Alabama regiment.
The steam propellors, Tennessee and
James Cage, arrived on the 18th inst.,
and proceeded up the river as the H. . 11.
Johnson was coming out. They ap
peared to have a number of troops—
cavalry and their horses on board."
al Leslie Combs has lately received a
letter announcing that the fiend O'Blen
nis, who murdered his son two years
ago, has at length met his deserts, hay
log been shot by some Mexicans at Mat
amoras, where he settled himself as a
trader. Just before his death, he had
murdered a gentleman named Townsend,
who had a claim against him.
Military matters has occupied the at- 1
tion of Congress principally, during the
past week. The Army Bill, for raising
ten additional Regiments of Regulars to
serve during the war, passed the House
on Monday of last week, by a vote of
171, to 24. During the discussion which
arose upon this bill, Mr. Ficklin, a Loco
foco member from Illinois, made a most
disgraceful attack upon Gen. Taylor.—
Notwithstanding the glorious achieve
ments of Old Rough and Ready," this
tory member of Congress had the auda
city to commence an attack in his rear,
by pronouncing him, in the halls of 'Con
gress, incompetent to lead an army.—
Not content with attempting to sully the
fair fame of Gen. Scott, the Locofocos
are now essaying to sear the fresh green
laurels which encircle the brow of Old
Rough and Ready. The political graves
of these men are already dug and yawn
to receive them.
An effort was wade to engraft Mr.
Polk's Lieutenant-General project upon
the Military Bill in the House, but failed
by a vote of 90 to 120 !
On Tuesday the death of Senator PEN
NYPACKER of Virginia, was announced in
both Houses, and the customary resolu- I
tions passed. No other business was
transacted. It is but a few days since
the death of Senator Barrow was an
nounced, and now we are called upon
to record the demise of another distin
guished member of the same body.
On Wednesday, the House met and
immediately adjourned to the Senate
Chamber, to attend the funeral of Hon.
J. S. Pennypacker, which took place at
11 o'clock. Rev. Mr. Slicer, Chaplain
of the Senate, officiated. The ceremo
nits were exceedingly solemn, and the
procession, consisting of the President,
Heads of the different Departments,
members of Congress, and others, very
On Thursday, in Senate Mr. Benton,
from the Military*Committee, reported
the bill, increasing the army ten regi
ments, with amendments relative to the
force to be employed. The amendments
were adopted.
Mr. Cameron moved that a section of
land be given to every soldier who should
serve to the end of the war, which was
discussed by Messrs. Benton,
Clayt on, Badger, Corwin and Crittenden.
The Army Bill was laid over until
Friday,. . . .
Mr. Dix was speaking in favor of the
bill to create a Lieutenant General,
when the Senate adjourned.
The House went into Committee of
the Whole on the Oregon bill, during
the discussion of which Mr. Burt defen
ded slavery and the South.
Mr. Seaman reported a bill to prevent
the importation of foreign paupers.
SENATE.-Mr. Benton reported a bill
this morning, granting sections of land
to the regulars in the army, as well as
the volunteers who may serve during the
Mr. Cameron opposed the bill, fearing
that it would kill his amendment to the
Ten Regiment bill—of feted yesterday.
The Lieutenant General bill was then
taken up, and Mr. Badger spoke in op ,
position to the measure, which he said
was one of injustice to Generals Taylor
and Scott.
When Mr. Badger had concluded, Mr.
Mangum moved, as a test question, to
lay the bill upon the table, when his mo
tion prevailed by 28 yeas to 21 nays.
This defeats the proposition for the
appointment of a Lieutenant General.
THE GREATEST Jr , KE YET.—Under this
head, the New York Herald has the
following well merited thrust at a tad
pole politician, who, it appears,
see any military capacity in General
Taylor :—" It is the opinion of the Hon.
Mr. Ficklin, of Illinois, that "Old Rough
and Ready" has not conducted the war
with true military skill—that the old
soldier, without men or pontons, was at
fault because he did not pursue the Mex
icans across the Rio Grande, and cut
the throats of every mother's son of
them. We recommend Mr. Polk to
make this Mr. Ficklin the Lieutenant
General of the Army.
