Extraordinary Session of the Mexican
Congress—Offer of Mediation by the
British Minister—Rumored arrival of
Gen. Taylor at San Luis—Reported
Revolution in the City of Mexico
against Santa linna.
FREDERICKSBURG, Va., May 13.
I transmit the following additional
Mexican intelligence contained in the
New Orleans papers of the 6th inst.
Upon the receipt of the news of the
defeat at Cerro Gordo, the Mexican Con
gress held an extraordinary session, at
which a decree was passed, dictating to
all Mexicans the importance of carrying
on the war, and defending the nationality
of the republic. It also prohibits the
Executive from making peace With the
United States, or concluding negotia
tions with foreign powers disposing of
any part of the territories.
The decree pronounces all to be trai=
tors, whether private persons or public
tinctionaries, who make any treaty with
the United States, and declares such
treaty to be null and void.
A permanent committee is to be in
. stalled, should Congress find it impossi
sible to continue its sessions. On this
committee is to devolve the whole duties
of the government counsel, and appoint,
in case of vacancy, a temporary Execu
The power of the committee to cease
at the conclusion of the war.
There were more than eighty mem
bers of Congress present at this extra
ordinary meeting, and great unanimity

dated 25th, 26th and 28th April, Vera
Cruz of the 29th.
Gen. Worth was still at Perote, with
2500 men. He had advanced one bri
gade with its battery, to enlarge the cir
cuit of supplies.
The arrival of the diligence at Vera
Cruz from Jalapa, on the 28th, brought
, the intelligence that Mr. Bankliead, the
British Minister, had offered mediation,
and Congress was acting upon the pro
It was repbrted that a strong party in
favor of peace had formed at the etipital.
A few light breastworks had been
thrown up in the vicinity of the city of
but nothing like a regular de
fence had been undertaken. The citi
zens seemed to be stupified by the suc
cessive defeats of their troops.
Santa Anna had written to the Gov
ernment from Orizaba, that he had 1500
men, and Wanted reinforcements and
money. His demands were, however nu
heedcd, and the government and people
appear to have lost all confidence in him.
The Puebla paper of the 24th declares
that a party of Mexicans headed by
Rejon and Gomez Rajas, had determin
ed to sell the Republic to the American
By an express arrived at Vera Crnz,
on the 29th, information had been re
ceived that Lieut. Dixon, in command of
a detachment of 102 convalescent sol
diers, on their way to Jalapa, had been
attacked by 300 Mexicans,
A wagon train has also been captured,
and fears are entertained for another.
It was rumored that Gen. Taylor had

It was also reported that the Mexicans

from Jalapa to Puebla, but entombing
themselves in the latter place.

Cerro Gordo says that Santa Anna sus

and finally being entirely surrounded,

column of the fourth infantry.
The Mexicans admit that two of their
t; Generals were killed, but Gen. Scott's
: loss is put down at four thousand, killed
two thousand, and as many wounded.
General Sales has issued a proclama ,
tine, declaring that he was empowered
to raise a guerilla corps, and calls on all
good Mexicans to join his standard.
Gen. Taylor—Assassination of 24 Mexicans
. —Endeavot to ascertain the Guilty.
The Schooner Heroine arrived at New
. Orleans on the 29th ultimo, from the
Brazos. The Delta contains a letter
dated Monterey, April 4th, from which
we make the following extracts :
" Three days ago the Alcade and
Priest of a small town some twenty miles
distant, on the road to China ; catne in
and reported to Gen. Taylor the murder
of twenty-four Mexicans, at Gualopa, a
P.. small rancho, about six miles from Re
mus. The murder was committed ; they
say, by a party of Americans numbering
about twenty, and was done in the night.
The murdered then were first made pri.
goners tied, and afterwards all shot
through their heads. The murder is
said to have Wen eorrintitted on the 28th
of March. On that night a train of loa
--7- ded wagons, escorted by two hundred
infantry and about the same number of
horse, under command of Col. Mitchell,
~ of the first Ohio Regiment ; encamped at
Marin, which is about 5 miles from the
scene of the murder. The mounted men
were composed of United States Dia
, goons and Texas Rangers, under the
, command of Capt. Graham, of the 2d
' Dragoons. Suspicion rests on some
part of this corpsy though no clue as yet
has been found to discover the guilty.
The officers in command—gentlemen;
and rigid deciplinarians—are using eve
ry means in their power to investigate
Gen. Taylor has got his steam up Oh
the subject, and is determined to haVe

town where these men were killed is but
a few miles from the place where the
large train was captured and so many
wagoners massacred on the 22d Feb'ry.
Some fifteen dr twenty of the wagoners
who escaped from the massacre came
up in the last train, yet there is no evi
dence that they were engaged in the
I passed over the place of the massa

ago, and the scene is truly the most
horrid and revolting that 1 ever witness

yet unburied, stripped of every particle
of clothing, lay upon the plains, their
flesh devoured by Mexican wolves and
buzzards, and their bones bleached in
The train was a very large and valua

four Chiles in length. The attack was
made upon the escort, who were in the
advance, by a large body of Lancers.—
The escort, forty men, under Lieut. Bar

taken prisoners; and are now in posses
sion of Urrea. The Lancers charged
