the city amidst the buzzes of soldiery.
As he entered, the mounted band of the
2d Dragoons astonished the " natives"
with HAIL COLUMBIA, SVIliCh was follow
ed, as the escort entered the Plaza, with
the soul-stirring YANKEE DOODLE.
One of the first acts of Gen. Stott was
to appoint Gen. Quitman Civil and-Mil
itary Governor of Mexico, and Col.-S.
F. Belton, Lieutenant Governor. Gen.
Qaitman's department embraces the fol.
loi'ing officers: Capt. F. N. Page, As
sistant Adjutant General, and Lieuts.
M. Lovell, M. Wilcox, and R. P. Ham
mond, Aid-de-Camps; Capt. G T. Da
vis, Secretary, and Mr. Levi, Interpre
ter. 'Throughout the 14th and on the,
morning of the 15th, the Mexicans con
tinued to fire from the corners and tops
of the houses, killing some and wound
ing many. The artillery was at first
tried on them, but owing to their unseen
position it was found useless.
The Rifle Regiment and some of the
Infantry were then sent in pursuit, and
soon silenced the firing from the house
tops. The Mexicans, during their rev
olutions, frequently resorted to this mode
of warfare, and continued it for several
days togeter without doing much dam
age on either side,but our riflemen picked
them out of their hiding places and soon
forced them to desist.
Since our army arrived in the valley
we have lost 3000 men, killed and
wounded. We have destroyed the Mex
ican army of over 30,000 men, upwards
of 6000 of which have been taken priso
ners. We have captured 70 pieces of
artillery, 27 at the battle of Contreras,
10 in a fort at Churubusco, and 33 on
the 12th, 13th and 14th.
The last of Mr. Kendall's letters da
ted the 28th, mentions the two following
rumors relative to Santa Anna—the first
that he had been taken prisoner by Col.
Childs—and second that he had been
slain by General Alvarez.
Mr. Kendall's latest letter is under
CITY or MEXICO, Sept. 426,.184.6
Assassinations continue—no less than
ten soldiers were found murdered this
morning in Cie quarter of San Peblo,
and eight yesterday. Our own men
arc to blame; they straggle from their
•quarters, and getting intoxicated at the
first palquesta or grogshop, are thus li
able to be beset by gangs of armed
ruffians, who are continually on the
watch. The fact of these murders
shows the feeling of revenge and deep
hatred which is entertained towards us.
The frequency of the murders is also
an indication that a regular system of
assassination has been planned—the
wire-workers being probably the priests
and thr leading men.
In m ; last I - stated that Col. Mclntosh
was sluicing under his wounds; he died
last night, and will be buried to-morrow
with full military honors.
He fell pierced with two balls while
gallantly leading his men to attack the
-Cain Matn on the Sth of September,
and his system suffering from wounds
received in former battles, was not able
to overcome the shock.
Yours, Ste. G. W. K.
Gen. Santa Anna has been proclaim
ed by Senor Gamboa, a traitor to his
country—having intentionally allowed
the Americans to defeat him in every
battle ; and lastly he accuses him of
having destroy* the nationality of
Mexico ; the honor and glory of this
unfortunate city, and of having compro-
Jnised, in the calamity, all classes of
Gen. Pillow is said to be severely
The New Orleans Delta and Commer

further interesting details of Mexican
intelligence. The latter paper publiA
ßS Santa Anna's address on his resigna
tion of the Presidency ; but it is evident
that he intends to continue directing
the operations against the American
army. Of the scattered portions of his
army he has gathered twenty-five hun

It is rumored at the Capital from Pu
ebla that on the 27th ult. Paredes, Bits
temente, and other influential persons,
intended seriously to invite a foreign
prince into Mexico, for the purpose of
settling the difficulties of the country.
The pnpers from the City of Mexico
to the 28th, state that Gen. Quitman
had issued an order on the 25th, notify
ing all the officers of the Mexican army
at the Capital to renort themselves im
fnediately to the Inspector General of
the American Army, and another on the
1.17 th, regulating the value of Corn.
I The shops were again opened and the
theatre was crowded to overflowing ev
ery evening. Contentment begins to
reign among the population, and numer
ous families, embracing many of the
softer sex, were to be seen walking the
streets with perfect confidfnce.
Gen. Scott had proposed issuing cir
culars to the different States, exhorting
them to appoint Commissioners with
full power to conclude a treaty of peace.
, He had also projected an expedition
if with 1500 men against Toluca.
IThe corporation of the city of Mexi
co had addressed several proclamations
to the inhabitants, to be peaceful and
ib.verse from injuring in any manner the
American Army; but if this Maus not
complied with, they would not guaran
tee the safety of either their lives or
property, as Gen. Scott had issued direct
orders that every house from which shots
had been fired, should be immediately
