From the St. Louis Reveille, of the
Bth inst., we learn that there has been
four engagements between the American
troops and Insurrectionists in New Mex
ico, in which eleven Americans have
been killed, and forty-seven wounded.—
The Mexican loss was 282 in killed be
sides a large number wounded.
Captain Burgwin was killed and Col.
Price wounded.
On the morning of the 20th of Janu
ary, intelligence of the massacre of
Gov. Bent was brought to Santa Fe by
an Indian runner. A circular letter was
also received by the Priest at this place,
stating that the Mexicans and Indians
of Taos had risen against the invaders
of their country, and requesting him to
join them. Thip letter was handed to
Col. Price by the Priest. Various re
ports reached this place of the advance
of the enemy and their near approach.
In consequence of these reports, Col
onel Price determined to march out of
Santa Fe, and meet them in the open
field.' He took with him three hundred
and forty men, composed of Capt. Ang
ney's companies of the 2d regiment,
and a company of citizens and moun
taineers, under the command of Capt.
St. Vrain—leaving Lt. Col. Willock in ' I
command of the post, with a force com
posed of his own battalion, three com
panies of the 2d regiment, a portion of
Captain Fischer's company of light ar- 1
tillery, and one company of regulars.
On the evening of the 24th, Colonel
Price encountered the enemy at Canada,l
numbering some 2,000 men, under the
command of Generals Jesus Tafoya,
Pablo Chavez, and Pablo Montoya.—
The enemy were posted on the hills
commanding each side of the road.—
About 2 o'clock, P. M., a brisk fire from
the artillery under the command of Lts.
Dyer, (of the regular army) and Har
sentiver, was opened upon them, but,
from their being so much scattered, it
had but little effect.
The artillery were within such short
distance as to be exposed to a hot fire,
which either wounded or penetrated the
clothes of nineteen out of twenty men
who served the gun. Col. Price, seeing
the slight effect the artillery had upon
them ordered Capt. Angney with his
battalion to charge the hill, which was
gallantly done, being supported by Capt.
St. Vrain, of the citizens, and Lieut.
Whites, of the Carroll companies. The
charge routed them, and a scattering
light ensued, which lasted until sun
down. Our loss was two killed and
seven wounded. The Mexicans acknowl
edge a loss of thirty-six killed and forty
five taken prisoners. The enemy re
treated towards Taos, their stronghold.
Col. P. on the 27th, took up his line of
march towards Taos, and again encoun
tered them at El Emboda, on the 29th.
They were discovered in the thick
brush on each side of the road, at the
entrance of a'defile, by a party of spies,
who immediately fired upon them.—
Capt. Burgwm, with his command of
dragoons, hearing the firing, came
together with Capt. St. Vrain's and Lt.
NV hites companies. A charge was
made by the three companies, resulting
in the total route of the Mexicans and
Indians. The battle lasted half an hour,
hut the pursuit was kept up for two
On the evening of the 3d of February,
the forces under Col. Price arrived at
Pueblo de Taos, where they found the
Mexicans and Indians strongly fortified.
A few rounds were fired by the artillery
that evening, but it was deemed advi
sable not to make a general attack upon
them, but wait until morning. The at
tack was commenced in the morning,
by two batteries, under the command of
Lieuts. Dyer and Wilson, of the regular
army, and Lieut. Harsentiver, of the
light artillery, by throwing shells into
the town.
About 12 o'clock, M., a charge was
ordered and gallantly executed by Capt.
Burgwin's company, and Capt. Angney's
battalion of infantry, supported by Capt.
Barbee's company. The church, which
had been used as a part of the fortifica
tions, was taken by this charge. The
fight was hotly contested until night,
when two white flags were hoisted, but
•hey were immediately shot down. In
the morning the fort was surrendered.—
In this battle fell Capt. Burgwin, than
whom a braver soldier or better man
never poured out his blood in his 'coun
try's cause.
MORE Tzoors.—TheWashington Union
of Saturday evening, says :
" We understand that the President is
about to call immediately about 6,000
volunteer troops into the public service.
They are principally intended to fill up
the plaee of the volunteers whose time
is about to expire. It is probable that
many of them will renew their engage
ments ; but to provide for any possible
contingency, it is deemed best to make
the present call.
"These troops are intended to strength

The town of Alvarado was captured
on the 4th by the naval expedition sent
against it, without an action.
Colonel Harney, with the Second Dra
goons, and a detachment from General
Twiggs' division, had taken possession
of Antigua, capturing one Mexican offi
cer and eight lancers.
The army was to move on the 7th in
the direction of Jalapa by divisions;
that of General Twiggs leading the ad
vance, followed by General Patterson
with the volunteers, and General Worth
with first division of regulars bringing
up the rear.
Flacotalapan anti Cosamonoapan, two
fine ports, above Alvarado, are reported
to have been taken by our forces, with
out resistance.
Commodore Perry was about starting,
with all his vessels, with the intention
of capturing every city, town and port
on the entire Mexican coast.
The latest report at Vera Crux was,
that Santa Anna would dispute the pus
sage of our troops towards the city of
Mexico, with an army of twenty thou
sand men. Mr. Kendall, however, at
tached no importance to the rumor.
The Union publishes a despatch from
Commodore Perry, to the Navy Board,
detailing the particulars of the occupa
tion of Alvarado. The only item not
previously published is, that the enemy
before evacuating the place, burnt all
the public vessels, and spiked or buried
most of the guns ; but those that were
concealed have been discovered, and the
Commodore directed the whole number
—about sixty—either to be destroyed
or shipped, with the shot, on board the
gun-boats, as they may be found of suffi
cient value to be removed.
The Mobile Advertiser states that Lt.
Charles G. Hunter, in command of the
steamer Scourge was ordered, one day
in advance, to blockade the place, in
conjunction with the Albany, Captain
Breese. On arriving at Alvarado, which
he did some time in advance of the Al
bany, Capt. Hunter thought he might as
well proceed at once to take the place.
He accordingly fired two guns, and then
summoned the city to surrender. The
authorities asked time to consider. Lt.
H. in reply informed them that they
might take their choice between an in
stant and unconditional surrender and
an assault from the land forces then near
at hand. They very wisely chose the
former, and surrendered at discretion.—
Lieutenant Hunter then left a guard,
consisting of Midshipman Temple and
five men, and proceeded up the river—
took the townof Tlacotalpan, a Mexican
brig loaded with cotton, and sonic small
er craft.
We understand that after these gal
lant achievements Lieut. Hunter was
placed under arrest by Corn. Perry for a
violation of orders—he having been di
rected only to blockade Alvarado. Such
a course was doubtless necessary in or
der to preserve a due subordination, and
yet it seems hard that a young and en
terprising officer should be thus punish
ed, whose only crime was an achieve
ment of which any ono might well be
The surrender to Lieut. Hunter was
made on the 2d instant. On the 3d Gen.
Quitman arrived with the troops, and
Corn. Perry with all the small vessels of
the squadron, but they found the place
already under the American flag. About
800 Mexican soldiers, belonging to the
two posts, were made prisoners.
The Steamer Cambria arrived at Bos
ton at a late hour on Tuesday. The in
telligence commercially possesses deep
interest. It will be seen that there has
been a great decline in the price of Corn
—and that Flour has receded.
The Corn markets arc receding in ev
ery direction, and in some descriptions,
that of Indian Corn for instance the fall
has been astounding. The price has
receded about 245. The rapid rise in
this species of food surprised many per
sons, and even in the judgment of the
unintimated exceeded the necessities of
the case.
Flour, like Indian Corn, has sustained
a considerable fall, and the existing
pression can hardly fail to be increased
by the fine Spring weather we are now
enjoying, which foreshadows an early
and prolific harvest.

Every battle-field is the source of
inexpressible grief, and woo, and agony.
To say nothing of the gory victims that
on such fields yield up their latest breath,

that must pierce the hearts of their sur

poets may hymn its glories and attune
their harps to sing the praise of the stir

over die graves of the gallant dead ; but
dint bloody field will also be consecrated
to human woe. Each one of the thous
ands that were martyred to the fell spirit
of war, had his friends, by whom his loss
will be mourned. Many fathers there
fell, leaving helpless children to struggle
with the stormy tides of life, without
the protection of the parental arm.—
husbands there died, leaving trust
ing wives to lenient in bitterness of soul
their loss. The dearly beloved sons of
hoary-headed sires there sighed their
last breath away, to be mourned awhile
and soon to be followed to the land of
spirits by those to whom their loss is ir
reparable. When we reflect on the de
solation that will he carried to thous

has the well being of our fine trees and
plants much at heart, writes to us as fol
lows concerning a new discovery of
means whereby insects may be driven
off effectually. Ho says :
" We are indebted to Austria for a re
cent and happy invention. An individ
ual of that country has thought of using
the galvanic power for the preservation
of trees and plants. He uses for that i
purpose two rings, one of copper and
one of zinc. Haying placed one upon
the other, helixes them round the trunk
of the tree, and if an insect but touch
the ring of copper, it receives at once a
galvanic shock, by which it is killed, or
made to fall. The effect of this appar
atus is equally good in dry or wet weath
er, and its action is unceasing."
It is a very simple plan, and is deserv
ing of a trial.—U. S. Gazettee.

The unprincipled assailants of Gen.
Irvin, conscious that their own asser
tions are not worthy of belief, are now
concocting slanders purporting to come
from Whigs in order to give them the
air of plausibility. About three weeks
ago the Ifuntingdon Globe made the fol
lowing charge (as that veritable sheet
says) on the authority of a gentleman
from the "neighborhood of Bellefonte,"
who stated it in his office:
I am aware that a move was made
in and about Bellefonte, a few weeks
since, to induce Gen. Irvin to subscribe
liberally to the relief of the suffering
Irish, as it would be a great thing for
political capital, and, as a prominent
Whig told me, it would induce the VA
GABOND IRISH to vote for the Gene
ral at the next election, I have heard,
however, that Gen. Irvin was about to
contribute fifty barrels of flour, and if
he does, it will be more with a mercena
ry than a real charitable feeling."
The editor of the Jour/au/immediate
ly asked the Globe to give either the
name of the gentleman who made the
statement or of the prominent Whig,'
but the Globe has been silent on the
We feel that comment on the above
charge would almost be an insult to the
understanding of the people of Centre
county, and if the circulation of our pa
per extended no farther than where Gen.
Irvin is intimately known in the walks
of private life, we should most certainly
offer no remarks upon it. But, this at
tack is intended for distant parts of the
State, that coming from his own district,
it may have the greater semblance of
truth. We say, without fear of contra.'
diction, that there is not a man in Centre
county so lost to every sense of propri
ety atd truth, as to come forward and
endorse the foul calumny.
In this section of country, where Gen.
Irvin's conduct when called upon for do-'
nations is known, his subscription in this ,
instance created no surprise, nor was it,
as lies been charged, induced for polit
ical capital or from " mercenary " feel
ing. A people were perishing for want
of food ; and ho only contributed in the
spirit of liberality which has always
prompted him to generous actions. if
his friends have mentioned the amount
he subscribed, to show that he has a
heart open the generous promptings
of humanitrand to show the falseness
of the charges made against him, it was
without his privacy or knowledge, but
it is nothing more than has been done
in other instances. James Buchanan,
"Pennsylvania's favorite son," and a
standing candidate for the Presidency,
sent a contribution of one hundred dol
lars to the citizens of Lancaster for the
same charitable object, and it was no
ticed in terms of approbation by the Lo
cofoco papers. No Whig Journal that
we know of has been so ungenerous as
to say it was done for the purpose of
buying votes. But no sooner had Gen.
Irvin given the donation he has contrib.
uted, than the Locofoco press of the
State open upon bin), and denounce his
act of benevolence as prompted entirely
by sinister motives. Gen. lavrx knows
too well the patriotism, independence,
and intelligence of the Irish awl Scotch
citizens of this Commonwealth, to im
agine that their suffrage is in the mar
ket and could be purchased by any do
nation lie could make to relieve the star
visit millions in the land of their fathers.
We have no desire to make capital in
that way, but if it shall become neces
. stay, instances may be referred to which
will show that this is not an isolated
case. They who know Gen. Irvin, know
that the whole tenor of his life stamps
the indelible impress of FAMEHOOD upon
such imputations as the above, and we
very much mistake the character of the
people of Pennsylvania if they do not,
in October next, place the seal of their
condemnation upon the unprincipled cal
umnies by which he is assailed.—Bellc.
