Resolved, That having entire confi

Democratic Whig principles of General
JAMES IRVIN, of Centre county, as
exhibited in a long and active life—be
lieving his talents to be of the highest

Pennsylvania as a suitable candidate for
the office of Governor of the Common•
Resolved, That in offering the name
of this distinguished citizen for the
.suffrages of the people of Pennsylvania,
we design to make no new issues as to
measures or principles, but adhering to

and of the United States at large, against
the competition and hostility of foreign
nations, and pauper labor; especially of
England ; equal justice towards all na
tions but entangling alliance with none ;
—the supremacy of the people over
their servants—the restriction or control
of Executive power, and the preserva
tion of national prosperity and individ

Resolved, That in the opinion of this
Convention, the people of Pennsylvania

enough of hollow profession for the par

the Tariff of 1842 was the source of
unexampled prosperity to the country,
and that its repeal has been attended

Resolved, That if an addition to our
territory be desirable, it should not be
attained by injustice, nor Attended with
an extension of slavery ; that while we
respect and will sacredly observe every

Resolved, That true democracy de

[From the North American.)
arrival of Gen. Scott—Vera Cruz report
ed as Evacuated by order of Santa anna
—Troops marched into the Interior—
✓lttacks threatened upon Saltillo, Mon
terey and Xatamoras.
WASHINGTON, March 8-9 P. M.
By the arrival of the schooner Delta,
at New Orleans on the Ist inst., dates
from Tampico to the 20th ult. have been
received. Gen. Scott had arrived there
the day previous.
It was reported that Vera Cruz had
been evacuated by order of Santa Anna,
and that the troops were marched into
the interior.
Mr. Lumsden, of the New Orleans
Picayune, writes from Tampico, on the
18th, that he has seen a letter from a
Mexican officer to a friend, dated San
Luis, Feb. 9th, which stated that Santa
Anna was to march on Saltillo prepara
tory to attacking Monterey. Gen. Ur
rea, with 5000 troops, was at Victoria,
and intended soon to march upon Mat
amoras. Both these attacks, the writer
anticipated, must prove successful, and
says, we will give the Yankees hot work
in the North while marching upon Vera
Cruz. The writer is Private Secretary
to Santa Anna.
It is pretty certain that Santa Anna
has arrived at Saltillo, and it is even re•
ported that he had engaged Gen. Tay
lor, but the latter was not believed to
be at Tampico. . _
General . Scott has issued orders to
regulate the punishment of all crimes
committed by Mexicans or Americans
not provided for by army rules, after
trial before a military commission, ac
cording to the laws of the United States.
Gen. Butler arrived at New Orleans—
Gen. Taylor at Saltillo—llgua Neuva
taken Possession of—Embarkation of
Gen. Worth's Division—Loss of the
Royal Mail Steamship Tweed—Sixty
persons lost.
The steam propellor Washington ar
rivied at New Orleans on the 26th ulti,
from the Brazos, which she left on the
23rd. General Butler came a passenger
--he was suffering so much from his
wound as to entirely disable him from
active service.
General Taylor had arrived at Sa lt►llo
with Briggs' and Thomas' batteries and
the Second Mississippi regiment on the
2d Feb. He has taken possession of
Aqua Nueva, and all the troops are to go
there, with the exception of a few who
remain in town.
There was no doubt that Gen. Minon
would yet cause considerable trouble.—
Gen. Taylor is very much in want of
light troops.
A letter from the Brazos, under date
of the 23d, published in the Picayune,
says that Gen. Taylor is busy making
water tanks and collecting train wagons
and pack mules. The enemy had left
that part of the country for parts un
known, but supposed in the direction of
Vera Cruz.
Gen. 'Worth's division had all am ,
barked, with the exception of the draz
goons and the light artillery batteries:
Gen. Worth had MOW' a day or two pre
vious in thd Steamer Editht
The AttreVida,arrived at New Orleans
from Campeaehyi and brings dates to

wreck of the Royal Mail Steanier Tweed,
on the 12th of February, on the north
east end of Alcarnes, Sixty persons
were drowned. An expedition had been
sent froit Carripeachy to her assistance.
Ur. A letter front tt highly intelligent
and well informed gentleman at Paris,
says the National Intelligencer, dated
Jan. 30th, published in the Providence
Journal, say% that the writer was infor•
med a few ctLys since, on very high au•
thority, "that Paredes is in Paris, en•
deavoring, but without success, to en
tangle the French Government in the
affairs of Mefico ; that Paredes gives it
as his opinion that the Mexican war will
be a long one."
