[From the North Amerieun,l
Vera Crnz dates to the Bth, Tampico
to the 10th, and Brazos to the 11th,
have been received at New Orleans by
the arrival of the steamship Galveston.
The New Orleans papers do not state
that the overtures of peace had been re
jected by the Mexican Congress.—
The dates from the Capital are no la
El Republicano of the 28th states that
a council of war had been held •by Gen.
Scott at Puebla on the 24th, to discuss
the question whether the army should
advance on the capitol or not. A Gen
eral, whose name is not given, express
ed the opinion that it would be impru
dent to advance with less than 20,000
men. General Worth differed from these
Gen. Scott and the rest of the officers
agreed with Gen. Worth's views, and it
was forthwith resolved to take up the
line of march for the Capital on the 28th,
but would halt at Rio Frio a few days,
to give time to the Mexican Government
to determine its answer to the proposi
tion for negotiation of peace. The
American force is estimated at 8500
The Commercial Times has authen
tic intelligence of these details, almost
literally correct. The Republicano re
marks upon this intimation that it be
lieves the Americans have compromis
ed their situation beyond measures; and
even if they win triumphs upon tri
umphs, those very victories will cause
their ruin.
The Republicano of the 30th, publishes
letters annnouncing the debarkation of
troops at Vera Cruz; that Gen. Scott
bad ordered to advance 1500 strong,
with 10 guns and a mortar, towards the
capital, but learning that the train was
detained this side of Puebla, had coun
termanded the order and
,dispatched as
sistance to the train.
It also states that Gen. Scott had pro
bably postponed his intention of reach
ing the Capital to the tenth of July.—
The same paper thinks it probable that
Gen. Taylor will abandon Saltillo.
The steamship Palmetto, arrived at
New Orleans, brings Vera Cruz dates to
the 9th inst. Nothing has been receiv
ed from Gen. Scott's army since the Ist.
The Picayune is confirmed in the opin
ion that the momentous news published
the day previous as received by the Gal
veston, was the result of a hoax at the
The expedition from Alvarado against
Padre Juranta was not successful. This
Mexican leader has given positive or
ders to take no prisoners, but to put to
death not only the Americans, but every
Mexican they can catch that has ren
dered services to our countrymen.
Gen. Pierce has not yet left Vera Cruz.
No news has• been received from Tampi
co or the Brazos.
The 8 American prisoners arrived at
New Orleans, reported at Tampico that
about 30 others had attempted to escape
but were retaken, and three shot du
ring the pursuit. It is supposed that

of the 15th makes no allusion to the re•

to which it gave publicity the previous
all parties are becoming tired of the ex
b -
istinr , war. The prestige of victory has
passed away. It was natural, after so
protracted a period of peace, that our
people should be temporarily charmed
by the clash of arms and the stirring
details of sanguinary conflicts. But the
" rapture of the fight," and the excite
ment engendered by the novelty of ac
tual war, have been succeeded by calm
reflection upon the revolting evils which
are the unavoidable accompaniments of
open belligerency. The public heart no
longer pants for bloody triumphs. The
shoutS of victory, and the groans and
agonies of the battle field, have ceased
to gratify ; and the universal desire now
is not to hear of the further sanguinary
triumphs of our invincible army, but of
the cessation of hostilities and the
amicable adjustment of our difficulties.
of Louisville; Kentucky, have organized
an " lndustritil League," among other
objects, looking into the establishment
of the ten hoar system by law, and to the
exemption from execution, and sale for
debt, of the mechanics tools, and of two
hundred dollars Worth of household or
other goods to every citizen having a
a family in the State.
(Connecticut) Times says that a child of
that town, was poisoned on the 16th
instant, by putting a visiting card in its
mouth, which its mother had given it to
play with. It died in forty-eight hours
after. An analysis of the' card showed
that the enamel or coating was compos
ed of carbonate of lead.
Suirrage of Volunteers,
We were about to answer the query
of a correspondent as to the mode off
returning the votes of our volunteers in
Mexico next fall, when the York Repub. ,
Bean met our eye, which says " the Act
of Assembly regulating the General
Elections of this State makes provision
that the returns are to be transmitted by
the officers named as inspectors within
three days after such election, through
the nearest Post Office, to the Prothon
otary of the county in which such elec
tors would have voted, if not in military
service. They are also to make another
return to the commanding officer of the '
I Regiment or Battalion, us the case may
be, who shall make a general return of
all the votes to the Secretary of the I
Commonwealth by post. The Prothon-i
otary is to deliver a copy of the Return
sent to him to the Return Judges of the
proper county, and those Judges are not
Ito meet until the Second Tuesday of No-
I vember after the election. They arc to
! include the votes so made known to
them in the enumeration of the votes
given in their respective counties. Yet
even this length of time will not suffice
to receive a return made from the City
of Mexico, or any where in its neigh
borhood, especially if the guerillas
should be about. Our legislators were
not far-sighted enough to provide for
such a contingency in 1839. They never
thought of volunteers voting in a foreign
country; for they did not know that in
the year of Grace 1847 we were to be
engaged, " under the direction of Divine
Providence" and in obedience to the
"Will of God," in "civilizing, Chris
tianizing and raising up from anarchy
and degradation, a most indolent, igno
rant, wicked and unhappy people."—
Purblind mortals that they were!"
&MANGE EVENT. -At a recent sacra
ment at the Seceder Church, at Cadiz,
Ohio, while the members were at the ta
ble, some six or eight persons were at
tacked with a violent fever so suddenly
that they were compelled to leave the
church for home and sick bed. The
disease spread rapidly through the con
gregation, and upwards of one hundred
members have since been taken danger
ously ill—whole families have been
prostrated, and a considerable number
have since died.

breadstuffs, and lengthened the rye-faces

experienced by a mutual friend who had
purchased flour largely at the topmost
prices, was coolly answered as follows :

rIIHE Democratic Whigs of the several
1 Townships will hold meetings, at the
usual places, on Saturday, August 7th,
1847, for the purpose of electing two
delegates to represent their several town
ships in County Convention, to be held
in Huntingdon on Wednesday, the 11th
day of August, 1847, to place in nomi
nation a Ticket, to be supported at the
coining election.
The Committee would urge upon the
friends of truth and order, the impor
tance of attending the primary meetings.
All who love their party, its principles,
its organization, and desire its success—
and believe it the safeguard of our Laws
and privileges, should be early in the
field, and faithful and untiring in his en
deavors to secure success. Neglect of
a first duty will bring coldness and care
lessness, in the performance of subse
quent ones. Old Huntingdon has array

She must maintain her post of honor.
