FROM MEXICO. 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 tive. 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 prevailed, The Picayue has a letters from Jalapa, 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 position. 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 Mexico, 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 vandals. 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 I arrived at San Luis, but not that lie had Aliken that city. It was also reported that the Mexicans 1, intended leaving the roads entirely free from Jalapa to Puebla, but entombing themselves in the latter place. A revolution is said to have broken out in the city of Mexico against Santa Anna. The Mexican aceounts of the battle of Cerro Gordo says that Santa Anna sus tained himself with 6000 against 14,000 and finally being entirely surrounded, en'. his way through the Yankees with a 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. FROM MONTEREY. 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, 'I ~ 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 the matter. Gen. Taylor has got his steam up Oh the subject, and is determined to haVe hung emery one, who it can be proved, has taken any part in the murder. The 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 Gualopa murder. I passed over the place of the massa cre of the 22d Ferbruary, a few days ago, and the scene is truly the most horrid and revolting that 1 ever witness ed. The remains of the murdered men, 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 sun. The train was a very large and valua ble one, and stretched out from three to 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 bour, of the Kentucky Legion, were all taken prisoners; and are now in posses sion of Urrea. The Lancers charged clown the train, and lanced withtlut Mer cy the wagoners as they ran for their lives in the chapparel. More than three fourths of then, it is thought; were killed, and their bodies shockingly mu tilated and disfigured. Urrea, by last accounts, was at Lina: res, expecting reinforcements. It is t'uniored that he has four pieceF,of artil- Cry With him. Marin, Ceralvo, Mier, and China be garfisoned by our troops, which will render bur ctimitianications with Camargo entirety safe, The troops here are in excellent health and eon. dition. The number of regiments whose year will expire in May or June, now in Gen. Taylor's column, is thirteen. How their places are to be filled I cannot devise— perhaps you can inform us." ADVANCE OF GEN.
