GREAT TOWN MEETING.
Nominated for the Presidency by
the Whigs of Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Inquirer says :-The
Whigs of the city and county of Phila
delphia made an important movement on
Saturday evening--a movement that will
be responded to with the liveliest enthu
siasm, by their political brethren and the
people at large in every section of the
republic. They assembled together in
great mass meeting in Independence
Square—called the Hon. JOHN SER
GEANT to the Chair—and, by acciama-
tion, ns it were, NOMINATED GENERAL
ZACHARY TAYLOR, THE HERO Or• SO
MANY WELL FOUGHT BATTLES-AS THEIR
CANDIDATE FOR THE PRESIDENCY OF THE
This is the first step
towards a great political victory. We
congratulate our friends and the coun
try upon the demonstration. To us it is
particularly gratifying. It confirms and
strengthens our views and position, and
shows that in taking the stand we did in
relation to the lion-fi'earted hero who has
achieved so much since the commence-
melt of the war with Mexico, we did
but give utterance and voice to the sen
timents of the People. All honor to the
Whigs of Philadelphia! They have
shown that so far as they are concerned,
they not only appreciate valor and gen
eralship, when associated with the noble
qualities of modesty and humanity, but
they are not backward to make good
their professions by their acts. Theirs
is not an empty eugoly. Theirs is not
a hollow admiration. They have run
np the Taylor flag while animated by
feelings of gratitude and patriotism, and
they will be found steadily sustaining
that flag in good faith, by every honor
able means at at their command.
The following are amongst the reso
lutions reported by Charles G ilpin, Esq.,
and adopted by the meeting, which was
addressed by the Hon. John Sergeant,
Joseph H. Chandler, Esq., Benjamin
Matthias, Esq., the Hon. Robert T. Con
rad, the Hon. Joseph R. Ingersoll and
the Hon. E. Joy Morris.
That the name of GENERAL JAMES
IRVIN, of Centre county, is known
throughout the Commonwealth, that gen
tleman having been the faithful, constant
and able advocate of a system of National
policy that is not only intimately con
nected with, but is absolutely necessary
to the prosperity of Pennsylvania, and
while we rejoice that we have presented
to us a candidate worthy of the esteem
of every good man of whatever party,
we are proud of these principles of our
party that attract to their support the
good and the great of our Common
That we cordially approve of the nom
ination of JOSEPH W. PATTON of
Cumberland county, as the Whig candi
date for the office of Canal Commission
er, that his manly bearing, his great ex
perience, hia business habits, and his
tried integrity, commend him to our ap
proval and support.
That we, the Whigs of the City and
County of Philadelphia, heartily rejoice
at the good and warm reception by our
brethren of the interior of the nomina
tion of Gen. Irvin, and .11r. Patton, and
that we hereby solemnly pledge our
selves, to unite with them in the use of
all honorable exertions to secure the
election of JAMES IRVIN, of Centre
county ns Governor, and JOSEPH W.
PATTON, of Cumberland county, as
Canal Commissioner for the Common
wealth of Pennsylvania.
WHEREAS, The eyes of the nation are
fixed on Major General 'ZACHARY
TAYLOR, and the heart of the country
beats high at the contemplation of the
deeds of chivalrous valor performed by
him and his comrades in arms at Palo
Alto, Resaca de la Palma, Monterey and
AND WHEREAS, he has been denoun
ced on the floor of Congress by promi
nent members of the present National
administration, at the moment he was
honorably, vigorously, and successfully
sustaining our country abroad, because
of his attachment to Whig principles,
and it therefore becomes the duty of all
good citizens, and more especially the
duty of all good and patriotic Whigs of
the Union to manifest in every proper
form their approval of his principles,
and of his glorious career as an Amer
ican General. Therefore Resolved,
That the thanks and gratitude of the
country are eminently due to Major
General ZACHARY TAYLOR, his offi
cers and soldiers, for the gallant man
ner in which they have sustained the
honor of our country, and carried the
stars and stripes triumphantly through
so many well fought fields to brilliant
Resolved, '1 hat we do commend him
to the favorable consideration and cor
dial support of our fellow countrymen,
and in the name of the Democratic W big
citizens of the city and county of Phil
adelphia, do name and nominate him as
the candidate of the great Democratic
Whig party of the United States for the
Presidency of these United States, and
avow our determination to submit and
support his name and his claims for the
approval of our Democratic Whig breth
ren of the Union, in National Conven
tion hereafter to be assembled.
WHEREAS, we have this day received
the gratifying intelligence of another
glorious triumph of our arms, another
noble manifestation of American valor,
in 'the capture of the city of VERA
CRUZ, and the far famed Castle of SAN
JUAN DE ULLOA by the troops under
the command of MAJ. GEN. WIN
FIELD SCOTT: Therefore Resolved,
That while we appreciate the master
ly and skilful manner in which the in
vestment and bombardment were con
ducted, and the bravery which character
ized all our force in the investment and
bombardment, we embrace the earliest
occasion to tender in the name of our
fellow citizens their heart warm thanks
to MAJOR GENERAL SCOTT and his
companions in arms, as well officers as
men, for their heroic conduct, and to
our brethren of Pennsylvania who have
shared in the peril and the glory, our
liveliest sympathy and regard.
LETTER FROM GEN. TAYLOR.
The subjoined letter from General
TAYLOR, to his personal and political
friend HENRY CLAY, speaks the deep sym
pathy of a great and good man in the
sufferings of a father, struck to the heart
by such a loss as Mr. Clay has to mourn
in events of the battle of Buena Vista.—
Those who read the letter, will compre
hend the grief of Mr. Clay at the great
loss which he has sustained, and ap
proach the true feelings of the success
ful commanding General who could, in
the midst of such a victory, pause to
write a letter of condolence, and sink all
personal exultation at success in the
deep regret at the loss of the gallant
men that aided in the triumph of the
day.—U. S• Gazette.
Ho. US. ARMY OF OCCUPATION,
Agua Nueva, Mex. March 1, 1847.
My Dear Sir—You will no doubt have
received before this can reach you, the
deeply distressing intelligenco of the
death of your son in the battle of Buena
Vista. It is with no wish of intruding
upon the sanctity of paternal sorrow,
and with no hope of administering any
consolation to your wounded heart, that
I have taken the liberty of addressing
you these few lines, but I have felt it a
duty which I owe to the memory of the
distinguished dead, to pay a willing tri ,
bate to his many excellent qualities, and
while my feelings are still fresh, to ex
press the desolation which his untimely
loss and that of other kindred spirits has
I had but a casual acquaintance with
your son, until he became for a time a
member of my military family, and I
can only say that no one ever won more
rapidly upon my regard, or established
a more lasting claim to my respect and
esteem. Manly and honorable in every
impulse, with no feeling but for the honor
of the service and of the country, he
gave every assurance that in the hour
of need I could lean with confidence upon
his support. Nor was I disappointed.—
Under the guidance of himself and the
lamented McKee, gallantly did the sons
of Kentucky in the thickest of the strife,
uphold the honor of the State and of the
A grateful people will do justice to
the memory of those who fell on that
eventful day. But I may be permitted
to express the bereavement which I feel
lin the loss of valued friends. To your
son I felt bound by the strongest ties of
private regard, and when I miss his fa
' maw face, and those of McKee and
Hardin, I can say with truth, that 1 feel
no exultation in our success.
With the expression of my deepest
and most heart felt sympathies for your
irrepareuble loss, I remain, my dear sir,
most faithfully and sincerely,
Your friend, z TAYLOR.
j Hon. Henry Clay, New Orleans, La.
The following is a copy of the
order issued by General Scott, at Vera
Cruz, on receiving information of the
American victory at Buena Vista:
HEADQUARTERS OF THE U. S. ARMY,
VERGAR A, March 15, 1847.
GENERAL ORDERS, No. .51.—The Gen
eral-hi-Chief of the army has received
authentic information of a groat and glo
rious victiry obtained by the arms of
our country under the successful Major
General TAYLOR, at Buena Vista, near
Saltillo, Mexico, on the '2 '2 d and 23d ul
timo. The general results were, 4.'000
of the enemy killed and wounded,
against our loss of '7OO gallant men.—
Gen. Santa Anna, sustaining en over
whelming defeat, is known to have re
treated upon San Luis Potosi, and prob
ably will not stop short of the capital.—
The General-in-Chief imparts this glo
rious news to the Army, that all with
him may participate in the joy that is
now spreading throughout the breadth
of our land.
By order of Maj. Gen. W. SCOTT,
S. S. W Llama, Aid-de-camp
A HlT.—The Louisville Journal says
that the functionaries at Washington did
not think Gen. Taylor worthy to have
his name appear in the last annual Ines•
sage of the President. The people will
perhaps think him worthy to have his
name appear at the bottom of the annual
message of the President in 1849.

LATE FROM MEXICO-CAPTURE

WASIIINIITON, April 13th.
The New Orleans Picayune of the 6th
has ndvices from the city of Mexico, via
Vera Cruz and Tampico, to the 17th ult.
El Republicano, of the 15th ult., announ
ces that our forces have captured Chihua
hua, the Mexican force which defended
it being completely routed.
A letter from Durango, of the 4th ult.
says, that General Garcia Conde left
Chihuahua on the 19th February, at the
head of 800 cavalry, to meet American
No particulars are given, but it is in

The American traders had previously

Santa Anna was at Ceedral when he
heard of the revolutionary movements
in the city of Mexico. He wrote thence
on the 3d of March, avowing his oppo
sition to the movement, and pushed on
to Matehuta, from whence he wrote the
Secretary of War on the 6th, that he
would march on the capital with a large
division ofhis force and put down the
Santa Anna entered San Luis Potosi
an the Bth, and was met with a trium
phant reception. All classes went out
to meet him two or three miles on the
road. At night he was serenaded and
the town illuminated.
From San Luis he wrote Barragan,
the head of the revolutionary party, attd
Farins, conjuring them to desist from fur
ther hostilities in the capital, dud an
nouncing his purpose of proceeding
A suspension of hostilities followed
the publication of these letters.
&Intel Anna had not arrived on the
17th, but would encounter no difficulty
in assuming power. All parties were
awaiting his presence impatiently, each
claiming that he would side with them.
The Picayune has no doubt that he
was at the capital on the 19th, as before
reported by Mr. Kendall.
MOVEMENTS O 1 THE ARMY,
The Washington Union says:—"Gen.
Scott had dispatched a detachment to
Alvarado, to collect mules, horses and
beeves. The village of Medelin, ten
miles from Vera Cruz, in the direction
of Alvarado, had already been occupied
by our troops, had quietly submitted,
and met with the most liberal treatment
on the part of our troops. The inhab
itants of Alvarado, will, probably, ani
mated by this example,
be willing to
furnish their animals for American gold,
instead of having them taken from them
by forcible contributions.
Two days after Col. Totten left Vera
Cruz, the General expected to send on
his advance towards the capital. He
will push on to that point, as soon as he
obtains the necessary transportation, and
as rapidly as lie can. He leaves no hos
tile foe behind. No very formidable op
position is expected at Puente Nacional,
(National Bridge, 30 miles from Vera
Cruz,) nor even at Jalapa, (68 miles.)—
The General will push on to the healthy
table lands between the bridge and Jal
apa ; thence, we presume, unless unex
pected obstacles occur, to the Capital.
It was thought that Gen. Vega had two
or three thousand cavalry with him on
the road to Mexico.
One problem is, will there be any Gov
ernment at Mexico capable of making
peace for, as the condition of things
now stands at Mexico, there may be
greater difficulty in finding an executive
to treat for pence than for them to carry
on the war. It was reported at the last
accounts that Santa Anna was advan
cing to the capital. There is no ab
solute certainty of this. According to
the last accounts received at Vera Cruz,
the city was distracted by contending
factions. There were every day broils
and bloody fights in the streets, in what
was vulgarly called "the wives war."
This is a contest of the clergy for the
exemption of their property, in which
they have contrived to engage the wives
of the capital, and through them the
husbands in their behalf. It is difficult
to understand, in this hurly-burly civil
war, who constitutes the government,
or whether they have any.
THE CATHOLIC CHAPLAINB. - A. recent
letter from Matamoras to the New York
Catholic Magazine expresses a fear thnt
one of the Catholic chaplains in the ar
my has been murdered in Mexico. It
"Father M'Elroy, the worthy chap
lain appointed to the American army, is
here, and has won golden opinions from
all classes and distinctions. The vene
rable man is in excellent health, and con
stantly occupied in doing good.
"Father Ray left Monterey on 16th
of January last, for this city, and has
not been heard from since. Ile either
has been murdered or is a prisoner with
the Mexicans. 1 hope he may be in the
latter position ; yet I must confess 1 fear
the former to have been his fate."
11.. The New Orleans Bee of the Bth
inst., says—Brig. Gen. Cadwalader ar
rived here yesterday in the steamboat
Sultana, on i►is way to Mexico. He takes
command of the posts on the Rio Grande,
until the reinforcements of Gen. Taylor
have all arrived, when ho will join the
main body on its advance to San Luis.
BY LAST NIGHT'S MAIL,
The correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, Writ
ing from Washington, under date of 18th inst.,
and who is generally considered good authority,
It has been determined to call out an addition
al force of TEN THOUSAND VOLUNTEERS,
under the act of :Rh May last, and nn increased
number of leaders of divisions becomes thereby
have heard that one regiment of the addition
al force will be taken from Maryland. and perhaps
two from Pennsylvania. The remainder will be
drawn from the South and West.
"The two armies of Gene. Scott and Taylor are
to be reinforced for the advance upon the city of
Mexico, and, at the some time, a sufficient force
must be lett behind to protect our whole line of
communications from Sehill° and Monterey, by
Victoria, to Tampico and Vera Cruz."
VERY LATE FROM MEXICO,
By the arrival of the steamship Alabama, the
N. 0. Picayune of the 9th inst., received papers
from the city of Mexico up to the 24th March in•
Santa Anna had taken leave of his army at San
Luis Potosi, and proceeded to the city of Mexico,
where he was proclaimed as President of the Re
public, and on the 23i1 he took the oath of office
at the city of Guadalupe de Hidalgo. The after.
noon of the following day he entered the city of
Mexico with great pomp and solemnity.
The revolution is still going on in the .city of
Mexico, but without much bloodshed. Conspira
cies against Santa Anna are daily becoming more
alarming, and a speedy fall of the Government is
The taking of Chihuahua by the American
troops is confirmed. The lase of the battle, say
the Mexicans, was through the cowardice of the
Mexican cavalry. They state the American force
to have been 1100, and 7 pieces of artillery, whilst
those of the Mexicans were 2000 men and 10
pieces of artillery. The Americans took posses-
Mon of Chihuahua on the 2d March, and nearly
all the Mexican families were abandoning the city.
A letter from Cedral, dated 17th of
March, states that Gen. Urrea had :net
a force of Americans in the vicinity of
Monterey, and had killed and wounded
a great number, capturing 170 wagons
and about 170 mules! Impossible.
By the arrival of the ship Arkansas,
the Picayune has dates to the 2d instant
with a copy of Gen. Scott's congratula
tory orders to his troops, and of a tariff
of duties established by Gen. Worth for
the port of Vera Cruz.
Mr. Kendall writes us that the last re
ports from the capital indicate that the
dissensions are not yet terminated.—
Santa Anna is said to have allied himself
with the party of Ferias, and to be de
termined to support the war at the ex
pense of the Church.
THE NEXT BATLx, it is believed, will
take place at the Puente Nacional, or
National Bridge, thirty miles from Vera
FROM GEN. TAYLOR.
Gen. Taylor has returned to Saltillo
after in vain pursuing Urrea. He could
not reach him, though he was once close
upon him near Marin. Gen. Taylor's
force consisted of about 1000 men, of
whom only 150 were cavalry.
The impression at the mouth of the
Rio Grande was that Gen. Taylor would
push on to San Luis. This is inferred
from his ordering so much transporta
tion to be sent forward.
