By the arrival of the steamer Alaba
ma, the Picayune has late advices from
the city of Mexico to the morning of the
29th ult., and Puebla to the 30th. Gen.
Scott still remained at Puebla, awaiting
the reinforcements on the road under
Generals Cadwalador and Pillow,
The news from the capital was indef
inite. Gen. Scott states that he had in
formed the Mexican government that
Mr. Trist was with him, and authorized
to enter into negotiations of peace. Santa
Anna has vainly endeavored to procure
a quorum of the members of Congress
to consider General Scott's communica
It is supposed that Gen. Scott will hate
to march into Mexico to secure peace.—
The censorship of the Press prevents
the knowledge of what measures of de
fence are contemplated. Santa Anna
was to leave in three days from the 30th.
it is stated that every avenue to the city
is fortified, but the success of the Amer
icans was not doubted. Gen. Pillow, it
is said, had been compelled to contest the
road with guerilla parties until beyond
Cerro Gordo. They took advantage of
every defile to arrest his progress.—
His loss is said to have been severe.
The government of Puebla has been
entrusted to Cot. Belton, of the 3d Ar
tillery. General Alvarez was at
Alixco on the 14th June, with 300 cav
The American Star of Puebla says
there are three months provisions for
the troops in the city, and that the
fields around supply the necessary for
A Mexican had been detected by his
countrymen, wile on his way front the
Capital to Puebla with drawings of the
different fortifications around the capi
tal. He was tried and condemned to
die, but escaped. The Mexicans used
every means to induce our men to
desert, and then used them most shame
fully. - .
A party of eight Americans ; not con
nected with the army, left Puebla for a
hacienda ou the road to Mexico to pur
chase mules, encountered a party of lan
cers, and could not escape, and was for
ted to fight them. All the Americans
were wounded, and it is supposed one
was killed. Five are believed to have
been taken prisoners. . . .
A letter from Mexico to the American
Star, says the American prisoners were
at liberty, and no one troubles them.—
The writer sees Major Gaines 'daily.—
The decree ordering the Americans
away had not been extended to them.—
It is believed that they are incarc,;rated
at Santiago. Majors Gaines and Borland
may be at liberty; but doubtful as to the
rest. •
