SANTA ANA REPORTED TO HAVE
BEEN SHOT BY HIS SOLDIERS—
DISTRESS OF THE MEXICAN AR.
WASHINGTON, Feb, 9, 1847.
The Southern mail of this evening
brings the Picayune, Extra, of the 2d
inst., containing news from Anton Li
zard° to the 20th ult.—Letters received
state that the Mexican Congress on the
Bth, after a stormy debate, approved the
first section of a bill authorizing the
Government to raise fifteen millions by
the hypothecation and sale of certain
property Velongint , to the Church.—
Santa Anna opposed this, and it is ru
mored that his opposition so exaspera
ted his soldiers that they had shot him.
This report needs confirmation, but
many circumstances render it not im
probable. The army was in great dis
The passage of the law created the
greatest excitement "in Mexico. The
churches were closed, and every indica
tion of mourning and resistance evinced
by those who support the religious es
tablishments. The Mexican Congress
and Mexican press everywhere appear
ed thoroughly aroused. The issue they
make is "Scr o no ser"—" to be or not
It is stated on the authority of dates
not so late as contained in the Picayune
extra, that Santa Anna had withdrawn
15,000 men from San Luis, and marched
with them towards the city of Mexico,
affairs there requiring his presence.
FROM THE ARMY
The steamers i\leKim and Alabama
have arrived at New Orleans, and Gal
veston dates to the 29th, and Brazos to
the 31st ult. have been received. _ _
Gen. Worth, with his command, had
arrived at Brazos via. Camargo, on the
23d. Gens. Scott and Worth are to
take command of the main and regular
army now concentrating at Tampico, or
at some place in its neighborhood.
The new recruits rendezvous at the
island of Lobos, 60 miles south of Tam
The opinion is almost universal, that
the movement is to be against Vera
Crnz, and it is understood that that
place is to be invested by land and water.
Col. Harney, with live companies of
dragoons, were expected to arrive at
Matamoras on the 21st ult., on which
day Col. Duncan arrived there.
Gen. Taylor had returned to Monte
rey, where he was to remain in com
mand of the volunteers.
His orders to this effect had proceed

Gen. Worth is said to be quite unwell.
Gen. Scott and staff were at the Bra

few days for Tampico.
The Frst Pennsylvania Regiment had
arrived at Brazos—all well. It is said
they had been ordered to Lobos.
Gen. Patterson arrived at Tampico on
the '23d, with 1,500 men. (lens. Twigs
Quitman, and Pillow were along.
The steamer Cincinnati had been lost
on the 22d, near Tampico.
LATER FROM MEXICO.
The New Orleans Picayune of the 3d
instant, gives the particulars of the dis
cussion in the Mexican Congress on the
project to raise $15.000,000 by mort
gages on the property of the Clergy, sell
ing the same if necessary to raise the
same. The project was laid before Con
gress on the night of the 7th, and the
discussion commenced the next morn
ing, and lasted until 7 o'clock in the
evening, when a statement was read
from the Vicar General in opposition to
the project. After much discussion the
project as to the mortgage was carried
by a vote of 55 to 31.
The question giving power to sell the
Church property was then discussed,
and also decided in the affirmative-44
to 36. The great argument of ministry
in the debate was, that unless means
were placed in the command of the Go
vernment, the Vice President would not
be responsible for the safety of the coun
try, and he was apprehensive that with
out funds to carry on the war, the army
would be disbanded, and march upon
the Capital to light the torch of civil
The files of papers received, contain
no accounts of the Congress having
touched upon the question of peace with
the United States. On the contrary, in
all the debates the most hostile feeling
is exhibited. Santa Anna in reply to
the Committee that proceeded to San
Luis to congratulate him upon his elec
tion to the Presidency, stated that he
had sufficient private means to support
the war for six months. The audience
dispersed highly gratified at this infor
mation. The Mexican Government has
advanced Gen. La Vega from brevet
title to the rank of Brig. General.
The Governors of Zacatecas and Du
rango were hostile to Santa Anna, and
refused to comply with his demands
that the ordinary and extraordinary re
sourtes of these States should be placed
at his disposal. The Mexican editors
appear to be well acquainted with the
number and movements of our troops,
which they give with great exactness.
They contain Santa Anna's dispatch
of the late attack upon Capt. May. The
letters of the Picayune's correspondent
mention the rumored death of Santa An
na, but it still needs confirmation.
The following highly important bill
has passed the lower branch of the Le
gislature, It is to be hoped that it will
pass the Senate and become a law :
To Prevent Kidnapping—Preserve the
Public Peace—Prohibit the exercise of
certain Powers heretofore exercised by
Judges, Justices of the Peace, alder
men and Jailors in this Commonwealth
—and to Repeal certain Slave Laws.

Huntingdon, Feb. 17, 1847-3 t
The bill for raising Ten Regiments of

money to buy a peace with Mexico.

On Thursday Mr. CORWIN of Ohio,
replied to Mr. Cass with a sarcasm and
power that startled at tittles all who lis
tened. He denied all the positions laid
down by the Senator from Michigan, and
ridiculed the idea that with 100,000,000
of acres of land we wanted more room.
Alexander wanted room and conquered
nations to obtain it, but what became of

and he had found it. We toa, want room,
and are to have it by robbing Mexico of
two thirds of her soil ! We had got one

We wanted more by securing California,
not because Mexico was willing to give
it to us, but because we wanted room.

Ingersoll, is pending in the House. Mr.
Wilmot of Pa., has submitted his famous
anti-slavery resplutions as an amend
ment, prohibiting the extention of sla
very to territory now free, acquired or

thought, will be rejected.

Ho! ye who pant with failing breathy
And pine away and die ;
Hance shall "put away" your death,
And light anew your eye:
How sweet it melts upon the tongue,
How grateful to the breast !
A glorious theme for poet's song,
Soothing his cough to rest.
Hance! favored of the God's, art thou,
A blessing to thy race,
Let laurels flourish on thy brotv,
And wealth those laurels grace.
When heroes are forgotten ; kings
Defunct ; or, ceased to rain;
Glory, for thee, shall flap her wings ;
Thou conquerer of pain.

lIA NCE'S Sarsaparilla Vegetable or
Blood Pills, for purifying the bloods
BALTIMORE, July 29, 1843 s
This is to certify, that I was afflicted
with a violent pain in the breast and
right arm, which I suppose proceeded
from the impure state of my blood. I
was recommended to take Hance's Sar ,
sapnrilla or Blood pills, and after taking
one box, the pain was entirely removed
from my breast and arm. I found them
extremely gentle in their operation, and
would recommend them to every person
in want of a mild purgative: PATRICK
Roche : No, 23 Contt•ay street, between
Howard and Eutaw.
In purcaasing these pills let me add
one word of caution. Always ask foe
Hance's pills, and purchase of none but
those advertised as agents, and if con ,
venient, call and see the proprietor
himself. For sale by Seth S. fiance ;
