Messrs. Editor; :tgOti the 2d inst. Gen.
Kearney, with ihmit i vight hundred men left,

to a village called Tipie, about one hundred
miles distant. *e struck the Rio Grande
twenty-seven miles ; (rum this place, at a .
village called San Domin g o, inhabited by
Puebla . Indians. ' reception at *in vil
lage was quite a grail affair, the principal
-men and,braves of , ike.tribe met us six miles
from the town and eSOorted us in; the braves
were mounted on seir best horses, and
dressed in the *esti gaudy apparel, and
armed and tiuippedlit the same manner as
when they go outfor '4he purpose of fighti
When the Generid:Phased the head-of it
columns, they fired', their guns, an , then
one file on each shloilof our corn , • , tes pro
ceeded to the mar Ind then • , • led and
came down close t°_Clur line . the top of the
speed of their hconco, yelling and going
through all the manceuvres of a regular
charge; they met again at the head of our
columns, fired at eajih other with their pis
tols, made .passes Vrith their lances, and
then filed off and returned to the head of our
companies. This , ',lives repeated several
times to the great admiration and astonish
ment of all who wit*ssed it. I have never
seen 'better horseuien anywhere, and from
what I could discove- I should take them to
4oe formidable in batik, if proPerly armed.
They are fine looki4 men, and much supe
rior in every, respect i M the blecican popu
lation. They have a very - fine Village', most
splendid vineyards,j end appar to be much
snore comfortable it every respect than the
Mexicans. When , 4 ,1 „e got into the village,
we were invited into the, priest's house,
'where a most sumptUous repast waset out,
consisting of the bet grapes I ever saw,
melons, apples, calies s .and with - liquor suffi
cient to wash them Sown.
After our repastif the General made . 'a
speech to the citizen . ), who ppeared quite
well pleased; they Olen escorted us out of
town, and we went*n our way rejoicing,
with full stomachs, 4pd every man .with just
\ liquor enough to Mike him feel patriotic.
' This was the only' Indian village we visited.
The only villages On the Rio Grande that,
we visited, worthy of note, are San Domin
go, Sari Phillippe, Albaquerque and Tonie.
We halted a short Wile at this place, going
and returning. Genf, Kearney called on the
late Governor's wife t and passed an hour or
two, as he told me, , verr pleassetly. She
is said to be an inte lligent woman, and de-•
ported herself with much propriety. Her
husband (Armijo) it is said, has gone-to the
Passe, and it is stimosed, will continue on
to the city of Mexito. The people - near
- the town of Tonie, tied the inhabitants of
the different villages,Thave heard of our in
tended visit, and the General so arranged
our marches as to bring us to the town the
evening before the iioiversary of their pat
ron Saint, a great clap with the inhabitance
of that region of country. And. I assure
you it , was a great dot, not only with them,
but to all who were present. There was
an immense concomie of people, men, wo
men, and children * Mexicans, Indians altd
white folks. They 60 prepared fire works,
. which were gotten pp in a very good style;
_the town was illuminated; they had a the
atre, that is, a playliU the open yard, which
appeared-to be well Oceived by- the inhabi
tants ; they also had It fandango, which was
not only crowded, but jammed and crowded
to overflowing; the beanty and fashion were
there, and, to my astonishment, I found
some of the women ciuite handsome •
The courage andfdiscipline displayed by
our volunteers at th4 ; storming of Monterey
are subjects of 04iversal praise. •The
'Charleston Evening ,news speaking of the
subject says : " ThO' l eircumstnocesof volun
teen storming entrenchments is novel in
military history. . 'The auxiliary force under
• Cleo. Taylor will be', said, however,
,not to
fall under the denomination of ?aw recruits,
having received the benefits of drill and dis
cipline for three maths, in the presence of
regular forces and '4Ccotriplished o ffi cers. ;
Yet the attack and Onrwent-sxposure in
assailing - fortified filaies, is rarely entrusted
to any but tried foroM. Militia which have
even received some 4rortion -of military in
struction are generally so blended with reg
ular troops, as to find, in their superior dis
cipline, a support, and in their trained stead
iness and example.!,g But in storming the
batteries at. Montere . t, American militiamen
stood alone in attaeti as they came out of it,
with almost impale! ed honor.
0 The secret of thf's is to'be sought in'the
.qualities which mugs render this species of
force, when trained, hot only equal, but su
perior, to enlisted Win and compulsory ser
vice. Very few, eiript men of lofty spirit,
will become voluntes in a severe service.
' If their sense of subordination is equal to
p . 14,
their perception of cjtor and feeling of pride,
they must form so rs beyond Comparison;
with NMI disci Libe, superior to others.
Acting under their. Own officers, they must
become nest-3o invincible.

IWAsetNoxost, Nov. sth, 1846.
The neWs from New Yuok has already
given rise to some angry comments, 'the
.Ca!holt!, alien make no bones of expressing
their satisfaction with it ,because, in their es
timation, Silas 'Wright was ' no t su ff ic i ent ly
a Southern man, and mosequently " not
sufficientlyi pure" to maihe a candidate for
the presidency. Calhoun is now tp run pos
itively, "with or withr,ut a. Notiont4 conven

candidates who is to go into the House if
the people;fail to elect a President, and be
tween both r e arties it is supposed he will oh

if incapr.ble of electing a President from
their e.wn party, prefering the anti-war pol
icy r f Mr. Calhoun to that of any man nom
ted by, and pledged to carry out the views
o r . the. Democratic party. But it may
be, after all, that the Calhoun men may
make theik calculations without their host;
it being possible, though not probable, that
South Carolina may play truant, and as
thero is no likelyhood of Mr Calhoun's ear
-1 tying any other State than his own, his
name, after all, may may not go into the
Equally singular is the notion which the I
friends - of Mr. Calhoun try to spread—that
it was- the Calhoun men who defeated
Wright ! . Mr. Calhoun has undobtedly,
from his position, talents- and elevation of
character,,rnany personal friends and admi
res in the State, or rather city of New York,
but politictd friends he has few, and certain
ly nothing approaching very near to a party
The administration is not intimidated by
the result in New York, though it may be
disposednat to resist amendments to the late
tariff enacted by Congress, provided they do
not interfere with the genera! principle. That
principle it is determined to uphold, be the
consequences. what they may.
One thikig is clear however, namely this : 1
Pennsylvania is necessary to whichever par
may win the race, and hence Pennsylva
nia willbC made the battle ground of the
j next Presijlential campaign. On Pennsyl
-1 vania, thetefore, all the efforts of party will
be exhausted, and-the contest, it may be sup
posed, will be a severe one. . .
The nost prominent Whig candidate seems
to be Judge 'McLean, at least as far as the
leaders are understood to express their opin
ion in this city. Gen. Scott's prospects are
utterly hopeless.
The; Cabinet; it would seem, has not come
to a definite conclusiorias regards the attack
meditated bn Vera Cruz. But it is imagin
ed, nevertheless, that, without such an-at-
I tack, and Ithe closest blockade of all the
I -Mexican ports, even the success of our troops
I at Ricanando and Saltillo would not end the
i war. Gen. Taylor, to be insured against
i all accident requires more troops, and they
will be sent to ' bun. •
Plans or attack and coups de ;actin on Ve
ra Cruz continue to . pour in upon the Navy
Department ; but no action has, I believe,
as yet been taken upon them. Some regret
that the President did not accept the offer
of Gen. Armstrong, our worthy Consul at
Pverpool,imade while lie was here, to sur
prise the city of Vera Cruz at the head of
5000 Tenpesseans, which he proposed to
raise himself, if-the government would ac
cept of their services. General Armstrong
is a brave And experienced soldier, who has
served under Gen. Jackson, and possesses
entirely the confidence of the Western peo
ple. lie would no doubt have distinguish.
ed himself,sand the blow, in the end, will
have to belstruck before peace is obtained
from Mexico.
No appiehensions exist as regards the
propOsed United States
,loan; 'and sealed
proposals continue to pour in from all parts
of tbe UniUn. The twelfth of this month is
the day on which the propositions will be
opened aatlthe award made. It is, of course,
the interest of the speculators to depress the
Government credit, in ordei to extort high
rates ; butlit is still believd that the loki will
be taken above par.
There is no further news from the Army,
and none expected except the, official ac ,
counrs'of ffie killed and wounded at the bat
tle orMouterey.

'! In the-fiiit place it will require the con

ter. , This machine properly- coated with
,will - iitainits buoyancy for many
days or weeks. ft' will be capable, when

20,000 independent of its own weight, net

or on board a man of war at sea, as circum

with percussion bomb shells to the amount of
18,000 pounds, which will leave 2,000 for
ballast and men. Thus it will be ready to
be placed in a position for deadly action in a.
very short time. The cable by which it is
to be manoeuvred may be at least five miles
long, so that the balloon et a milt- of eleva

they could not be made to bear at an object

the balloon as to height, and distance from
the retaining point could be easily main

the discharge of shells and torpedoes, an ad
equate quantity of gass can also be dis
If a gun from the fort could be made
to bear on the war balloon, it would
soon be silenced by the rapidity, precision
and certainty with which the deadly missiles
could be showered down upon them.
With this renal war ship hanging a mile
above the fort, supplied with a thousand per
cussion bomb shells, the castle of-Vera Cruz
could be taken without the loss of a single
life to the army, And at an experise that
would be comparatively nothing to what it

Railroad Accident and Providential
The Philadelphia Inquirer of the 3d inst.
says: "A serious and alarming accident oc
cur,* yesterday to the Railroad Line which
left New York at 6;1 o'clock A. M. While
crossing the bridge over Rancocus Creek,
it was discovered that the "draw" was not
let completely down. The danger was im
minent, as there was not sufficient time to
prevent the train from reaching the open
draw, such was the headway of the locomo
tive. The conductor,, brakeman and engi
neer behaved with the utmost coolness, and
contrived to detach the cars just at the very
moment that the engine touched the edge .of
the aperture or - chasm. Another • instant,
and the locomotive was plunged into the
creek, which is broad and deep, and disap
peared beneath the waters—the cars re
maining, and the numerous passengers saved,
as if by providential forethought and cool
ness on the part of the individuals we have
named; from frightful danger, injury,
wounds and death."
Artnrvat. OF REclwrrs.—One hundred re
cruits for the first regiment of dragoons with
their horses arrived yesterday on the steam
er Julia, from St. Louis, and will proceed to
the Rio Grand immediately. They were
under the command of Col. Kearney, a
nephew of Gen. Kearney. The horses, 90
in number, are all greys, and beautiful in
the extreme. The men arc picked and no
ble looking fellows. The trappings °rale
horses and the accoutrements of thir riders
are all that the most fastidious commander
could wish. Lieutenant Kearney. has been
from his youth'a most devoted and -enthusi
astic equestrian and cavalry man. He sßent
some years uuderthe command and tiNelage
of his gallant uncle, and then went to Eu
rope, under instruction from Government,
to ascertain and report on the most useful
and easy kind.of equipment for cavalry, and
he acquitted himself of his task in a manner
_creditable to himself and the Govern
ment. While abroad, with a view to famil
iarize himself with actual warfare, he left
the United States service and entered a vol
unteer in the French service in Africa, where
he served as a chasseur throughout the
bloody campaign of 1840; He has again
joined our army and raised the fine compa
ny of Dragoons of which we have spoken.—

Gen. Jackson and Capt. Fatio, late of the
Revenue Service: " The Capt. Fatio who
was lately dismissed from service as Com
mander of the Revenue Cutter WoodburT,
in consequence of putting into port to avoid
a - gale of wind, he having 'a government
agent on board, charged with important
despatches from Vera Cruz, is the same per
son who obtained office from Gen. Jackson
in rather a singular
_manner. Having been
dismissed from service by John- Quincy
&hubs, he laid his complaint before the
new President immediately upon his acces
sion to power. The General, as he alleges,
)irornised to reinstate him, but put him off
from day to day, until at last, incensed by
the untiring importunities of the little Cap
tain, the old hero sprang to his feet,
swore by the Eternal,' if he did not desist,
he would throw him out of the window !
The words were likely to be followed by the
action, when Fatio, distending himself to
his utmost proportions, exclaimed, Try it,
you old tyrant, and I'll run you through !'

fellow's coolness ,and courage ; that he sat

were objectionable featukes in the instru.i
meet, which, ill any honest and intelligent;
community, would assurehl y work its- con4l
demnation. Ini,the city mre was a large'
majority against it, and colored suffrage.--4
They also rejected the nelw City Charter bi.,..
a heavy majority.
In some portions of the State the parties
were much divided, and i l t would seem that
a great variety of issues n , jere before the peoi
pie, which may; account for - the rather sin
gular fact, thatin Whig governor is elected
by a very tcilernble majority, with a Demo=
erotic Lieut. Ginternor.- fin many counties
where Mr. Youtng received large majorities;
Mr. Gardiner also led tisl competitor. Still;
frotn the aggregate Whig gain in the totst
vote given, we must acknowledge the cacti.
that the Whig* have triumphed in .Nessi

question of importance 4nd attended with,
