IMPOHIANT FROM MEXICO,
PROCLAMATION OF GEN. SCOTT,
[Correspondence of the Picayune.]
.VETII Cnuz, May 13th, 1847.
GENTLEMtN-A band of about 200
MexicaUs has been prowling about the
mounted riflemen's camp, four Miles
from this place, two nights in succession
—and last night the men were aroused
twice by the approach of Mexicans.
Early this morning our gallant Capt.
Walker started out to give them battle,
and had a nice little skirniish, killing
four of the enemy by the time my in
foimant, an officer of the Rifles, left,
and he represents 'Walker a long way
ahead.of the scene of the first brush fol
lowing them up. I guess -the enemy
will find that they have got hold of the
'wrong chap before Capt. W. has done
This morning early a dragoon came
in from Santa Fe, where he had been
left with seven others to guard some
stores belonging to Government, and he
states that a body of about 200 Mexicans
attacked them last night, killing all his
companions and taking posSession of the
stores, and he only saved himself by
running. There is another company of
riflemen following up Capt. W., but I
regret that I do not know by Whom it is
commanded. lam assured by an eye
witness. that he saw four dead Mexicans
on the ground when Capt. W. met the
enemy. It is generally supposed that
this party of the' enemy are bear here
more for the purpose of plundering
small parties and stealing horses than
any thing else.

JAL trA, Mexico, May 11, 1847, 6 P.M
Sin& the diligencia went out at noon
to , day for Vera Cruz, another diligencia
hns come in from the city of Mexico full
orpassengers, and bringing news of not
a little i!nportance. Among the passen
gers was Mr. Kennedy, win, after being
badly treated here about the Ist of
April, was driven to the city of Mexico.
All the passengers confirm what I
•wrote you this morning. They say that
at the capital there was no Gokernnnent
order--no responsibility—all was
anarchy: Anaya Was still President
pro tent, but had neither influence nor
authority. A new President is to be elect
.on the 15th of the present month--
the tenth Chief Magistrate this distract
ed country has had within the last 18
Months. I cannot stop to count them
•all up, but such is the fact:
The ladrones—guerillas I suppose
they should be called now—are busy at
upon the roads especially between
Puebla and city of Mexico. The
same passengers were robbed the other
day -tio less than seven titries in one
stage, and the inference is that the last
robbers must have had rather poor pick
ing if the first were very searching in
their operations. The diligencia in
Which Mr. Kennedy came down was
robbed twice on the road.
it is stated that the propositions made
by England some months since, to offer
her intervention in settling the difficul
ties between Mexico and the United
States, have recently been taken up by
the Mexican Congress, and after a warm
discussion, in which one of the mem
bers said that the Whole affair was but
another attempt of the Monarchists upon
the sacred liberties of the Mexican Re ,
public, the motion even to consider them
was lost by a vote of 44 to 33. From
this it would seem that the present Con ,
gross is determined to shut every door
against ail proposals of an honorable
There is certainly a party, and an in
fluential one, in Mexico, which begins
to talk of peace; and where four weeks
since they did not dare breathe their
sentiments, they now come out openly
and avow themselves. Still the meas.
ure is far from popular. The peace party
is composed of the more honest and in
telligent property holders,tlie merchants
and perhaps the clergy—to these are
or posed the military, who have all dis
g:need themselves, and all the dema
g.:gues among the lawyers. If the
pi :Lists couldbe made certain that they
would continue to hold their rich beneti
ccs secure, they would probably be all
in favor of peace.
Nlajors Bindand and Gaines, Capt, C,
Clay, and all the officers taken in the
north were at liberty in the city of Mex
ico, as was also midshipman Rodgers.—
They are all said to be well and respect
fully treated now, although the latter
was infamously abused on the way up
to Mexico from Perote.
Gen, Canalizo was at San Andres, a
place north of Orizaba, at last accounts.
The force with him is not stated, but is
undoubtedly small. He is an old friend
of Santa. Anna, and is probably working
at present for his master:
I write this in great haste, and have
no time for comment. One thing I
must say, and that is that there undoubt
edly would be a very large peace party
ni Mexico were it not for the overween
ing pride of a majority of the inhabi
tants. It is hard to be thrashed into a
peace, that's certain.
I send this by a Mexican to Vera
!rut,. who promises to ride through at
his fastest speed. If it reaches you, well
and good. Yours, &e., 0. W. K.

HEAD-QUARTERS OF THE ARMY,
JALAPA, May 11, 1847,
The General-in-Chief of the .Rrmies of
the United States of ilmerica to the
Mexicans! The recent events of the
war, and the measues adopted in conse
quence by your Government s , make it
my duty to address you. To show you
truths of which you are ignorant,
because they haVe been criminally
concealed from you: Ido not ask
you to trust my words, (though he who
has never falsified them has a right to
Confidence,) but to judge of these truths
by facts within the VieW and knowledge
of you all:
Whatever may have been the origin of
this war; which niy country saw, itself
forced to undertake by irremedible
causes, Which I learn are unknown to
the greatet part of the Mexican natioa
we regard it ns a necessity; such is it
always to both belligerents, and reason
and justice, if not forgotton on both
sides, are in dispute; each believing
them its own. You have proof of
this truth as well us ourselves, for in
Mexico, as in the United states, there
have existed and do exist, two oppisite
parties, desiring— the one peace; the
other war; But governments have
cred duties, from which they cannot de ,
part; and often these duties impose, for
national reasons, a silence and a reserve
sometimes displeasing to the majority
of those, who, from views purely person
al or individual, make opposition. To
this a government Cannot pay any re
gard; expecting the natidit to plttee in it
the confidence merrited by a magistracy
of their owh election.
Reasons of high policy and of conti
nental American interest precipitated
events in spite of the circumspection of
the Cabinet of Washington, which ar
dently desiring to terminate its differ
ences with Mexico, spared no resource
comparable with honor and dignity, to
arrive at so desirable an end; and when
it was indulging the most flattering
hopes of accotaplishing its aim by frank
explanation and reasonings, addressed
to the judgement and prudence of the
virtuous and patriotic Government of
Gen. D. J. Herrera, the misfortune least
Waked for dispelled this pleasant hope,
and at the same time blocked up every
aLenUe which could lead to an honorable
settlenient between the two nations.
The•aew GoVerninents discarded the
national interests, as *ell as those of
Continental America, and elected in
preference foreign influences the most
fatal to the future of Mexican liberty
and of the republican system, which the
United States hold it a duty to preserve
and protect. Duty, honor and dignity
itself impose upon us the necessity of
not losing a season of which the monar
chical party was taking violent advan
tage, for not a moment was to be lost,
and we acted with the promptness and
decision nedegsdry in a ease so urgent,
to avoid thereby a complication of inter
ests, which might render our relations
more difficult and involved.
Again in the course of civil war, the
Governinent of Paredes was overthrown.
We could not but hope this would probe
a fortunate °Vent; and *hatcher other
administr.ution might represent the Gov
ernifient, it would be less deluded as
well as more patriotic and prudent, if it
looked to the common good, weighing
probabilities, its own strength and re
sources, and especially the general opin
ion as to the inevitable results of a na
tional war. We were deceived, as
haps you Mexicans, were also deceived
in judging of the true intentions of Gen,
Santa Anna, whom you recalled, and
whom our government permitfed to re. ,
From this condition of things the
Mctican nation/has seen what hale been
the results—results lamented by all,
and by us sincerely, for We appreciate,
as is due the valor dad noble determina
tion of the unfortunates who go to bat ,
ill-led, worse governed and almost
invariably outraged by deciet or per
We' have witnessed—and we cannot
be taxed with partiality for lanieuting—
with astonishment that the heroic de
partment of the garrison of Vera Cruz in
its valiant defence, was aspersed by the
general who had just been defeated and
put to shameful flight by a force far in
ferior to that which he commanded at
Beuna Vista; tlurt this general, rewar
ding the insurgents and promoters of
civil war in Mexico, heape'd antra:
ges on those who had singularly distin;
guished themselves by a resistance be;
yond what could be expected, and of ad
, mirable decision.
Finally, the bloody event of Cerre
Gorda has shown the Mexican nation
. what it may reasonably expect if it lon
ger continues blind to the true situation
in which it has been placed by some
geherals i whom it most distinguished
and in whom it has most confided.
The hardest heart would be moved to
grief in contemplating the battle-fields
of Mexico a moment after the last strug
gle. Those generals whom the nation
has, without service rendered, paid for
so many years, with some honorable ex
ceptions, have in the day of need be
trayed it by their bad example or un--
skilfulness. On that field, amongst the
dead and dying, are seen no proofs of
military honor, for they are reduced to
the sad fate of the soldier—the same on
every iiceasioh, froth Palo Alto to Cerro
Gdrdii—the dead to remain unburied and
the wounded abandoned to the clemency
and charity of the ccinqueror. Soldiers
who go to the fight, expecting such a re
compense, deserve to be classediltiningst
the best in the world, since they , are
stimulated by no bap° of ephomerini
glory, of regret, of rehiembrance or even
of a grave.
Again, Mexicans of honorable pride;
contemplate the lot of peaceful and labor
ious citizens in all classes of your socie.:
ty. The possession of the church me
nanced and held out as an incitement
to revolution and anarchy; the fortune
of the rich proprietors pointed out foi
plunder to the ill-disposed; the merchant
and the artisan, the laborer and the
manufacturer, burdened with contribu
tions, excises, monopolies, taxes upon
consutnption, surrounded with restric
tions and Charged with odious internal
customs; the man of letters and the
statesman; the titan of liberal knowledge
who dares to speak, persecuted without
trial by some faction or by the rulers
who abuse their poWer; criminals un
punished and set at liberty, as were those
of Perote—is this, then, Mexicans, the
I will not belieVe that the Mexicans of
the present day are wanting in courage
to confess errors which do not dishonor
them, and to adopt a systent of true lib.;
erty, of peace and union With their
brethren and neighbors of the North;
neither Will I believe that their are ignd

No! public, sentiment is not to be crea

property, as they would have you believe.
We say this with pride, and we con
