LATER FROM MEXICO,I
PROSPECT OF PEACE !
Jppoiniment of Peace Commissioheis by
the Mexican Congress- -11naya elected '
President---4rrest of Generals Worth
PETERSBURG, Dec. 20.
The extra Picayune of the 13th, has
dates from Vera Cruz to the Ist and 7th,
by the arrival of the Virginia. The
whole story about Santa Anna being at
the head of 18,000 men, turns out to be
mere moonshine. A reliable Mexican
gentleman, who came passenger, says
that Santa Anna has not even 1800 fol
The above alludes to the following
paragragh from the Delta, received at
New Orleans the day previous :
"Dates from the capital to the 2.l•th
Nov. had been received at Vera Cruz.
Santa Anna had issued another prontin
ciamento against the provisional goVern
ment, and called on the country to or
ganize a force of 50,000 theft to renew
the war. He was at the head of 16,000
men, and threatening Congress, which
was in session at Queretaro. It is ru
mored that a, majority in Congress viere
inclined for peace. On necouht of fears
- it the capital that Santa Anna would
brave and intimidate Congress, General
Scott bad ordered General Worth, with
a strong division, to march for Quereta
ro to protect Congress in their delibera
Gen. Annya was elected President of
Mexico on the 11th inst. He has once '
before been Provisional President. His
present term of office extends only to
the Bth of Januarynext. He is known
to be in favor of peace. In forming his
cabinet, he continued Mora y Villamil in
the War Department, and made Pena y
Penn, late the President, his Secretary
of State. The whole administration is
in favor of an honorable peace, and one
of its first acts was to despatch a com
mission to the city of Mexico to re-open
negotiations with Mr. Trist. The com
missioners were Senor Couto, Artistain
tind Cuevas, and Gen. Rincon, the first
two having been on the former commis
pion. Mr. Trist's powers had been re
voked prior to the arrival of the corn
mission, and as Gen. Scott possessed no
isawers to treat with them, it is presumed
they were referred to our gofertinient
The inaugural of the President is in
the characteristic Mexican style: In
taking office he formed the resolution
that the seat should not be dishonered,
his natiVe land should never be deceived
—his life, his blood; his reputation, all
belonged to her."
Many members of eohgress, displeas
ed with the selection of the new Presi
dent, gave up their seats, and retired in
disgust from the city of Queretaro.
The next most important intelligence
by this arrival is the reported arrest of
Gen. Worth, Gen. Pillow, and Lieut.
Col. Duncan, by Gen. Scott. The ver
bal report is that letters written by these
gentlemen, reflecting on the commander
in -chief, have fallen into his possession,
upon which he at once arrested them.
Hero is an extract from a letter which
gives us an account of a sharp affair
with guerrillas, which is Very creditable
to our arms.

That place has been the scene of the most
frightful massacre of Indians, and we
regret to add that the cowardly deed
was commited by American soldiers.—
The circumstances attending this dis
graceful affair are substantially as fol
lows : On the 25th, a body of Indians
were observed at some distance from the
Fort, supposed to number upwards of 70
or 10. The cheif of the band visited
the Forts and teas eordtaly received by
Captain Peltier, the officer in command.
The Indians were also invited to enter,
and while in the Fort, suspicion of harm
and foul play tt'ere aroused among them
by &Orlin movements of the troops.—
The Indians then attempted to escape out
of the Fort, and in so doing, four of their
inumber were killed and two wounded:—
Three others, who nt the request df dtipt.
Peltzer had taken refuge ih qiirters,
were killed. The Indians on the out
side of the Fort were then fired
upon, and fifteeh or twenty wounded,
considered ffidttally. Col. Gilpin, the
officer in command of that station, was
absent at Fort Brent. This is regarded
as a triest infamous and horrid affair. The
