New Orleans, Jan. 15, 1847.
We are .new fairly on the way from this
hallowed spot for the plains_of Mexico; and,
I hope, for many, fields of glory. Two de
tachments•ot the regiment from the right ',
and left are already on board the transports,
and the third; consisting of Rill's, More
head's and SinalPs companies will strike
tents arid embark •in the morning. We
have ' been here between two and. three
;weeks, and although we honor the spot; as
the scene of Sockson's Airilliant victory, we
ire glad to move away •from it and the city
of 'abomination near it. ' The ground 'on
'hich we have bn encamped is pleasant
enough• in find•ve ther; and afford an excel
lent parade foii - dri , but is an execrable place
in foul weathet, a d the city has no conso
lation in it. - iTli people look askande at
volunteers. ¶h a 'huh; money the regiment
brought with it -ha been filched away by the
most extravagant charges for every thing
purchased, anti, I!repeit, we are glad to get
away frOm thri place...;
Several companies of the second regiment
of Mississippi volunteers are encamped be
tween us and he river, waiting the arrival
of other detac ments of the same regiment.
Theyrare a rbngh looking set of fellows,
withoirt uniforms, and would not weigh half
as much as the same number of Pennsylva
nians,•nor do they appear capnhle of endur
ing the same fatigues and hardships. They
may, However, prove better than they look,
when called into action, and I dare say,
know how to - use their arms with skill and
effect.: I • • '
Four companies of the second regiment of
Pennsylvania vOlunteers, have also just ar
rived upon the ground, (tit 5 o'clock P. M.)
and are selecting the site for the climatic
went They are fine, noble looking fellows,
and will no doribit do good service. Our
'men have been inuCh disappointed in not
seeing some neulcoMers from Philadelphia,
having obtained leave to go to the river on
the arrival of eaph succeeding detachment
of troops above noticed, in the hope of meet
ing friends and akluaintances.
9'o'clock, P. M.—ln the burry of pulling
up-stakes and the unavoidable confusion in
cident to such a movement by new hands,
we are all sixes and sevens, and I must write
my paratrraphs as I best cane and at inter
vals. To add .to our disorders, Captain
Hill's company, "the Killers," have again
broken out in a mutinous and disorderly
manner. These fellows arethe pest of the
camp and the curse of the neighborhood.-- ,
They have given us trouble from the begin
ning, have disgraced themselves and the re
giment, 'and will - never be quiet, I am assur
ed, until some of them are shot or hung. As
the tattoo has been sounded by the drums, I
must put out my light and retire.
January 16, 1E47.
The third detachment of our regiment
have stricken their tents, and are now on
bbard the ship Statesman, busily engaged in
preparing fur the Voyage to Brazos St. Jago,
and thence, as we.lllse informed, to Vera
Cruz. We, of course, know nothing cer
tainly ofthis, but as the ship is provisioned for
three mohths, it is possible we shall go much
fartherthan Point Isabel, which we can reach
in •four or six days, We shall be ready to
start by the, evening, I hope, as the baggage
ana stores are now pretty murk disposed of
on board. I shall send my letter as we leave
the shore.
Capt. IEII has offered hisresignatibn, and
left his company in charge of his first Lieu
tenant,-Mr. Krutchmar. Lieut. Moore has
gone with him, and as Lieutenant Brown,
Capt. Hill's other second lieutenatit, is-Ad
jutant of die regiment, the company is left
with but one commissioned officer.
The reason assigned : for this movement
is, that Abe Killers, or some of them, sur
rrounded.Capt. Rill's tent last night, - with
the , design.of assassinating him, and that be
cannot .hold his post among them either with
honor or safety any longer. I know all the

Ready" is a •bivive niUl economical General,
and these very -utilities recommend him to
the President acd the Departkant. But• he
must have grovra out, of temper; and in a
state of irritation penned the letter which
he, in an. evil hour, addressed to General
Gaines. He nn ll Gen. Gaines were not on
the very , best . terms before the Commence
ment ofthe war; but it seems that similarity of
political principles effected on amicable ar
rangement, and
,that the letter recently pub
lished is the offspring of that singular connec
tion. If General Taylor understands hu
man character, w was scarcely justified im
confiding his secrets and private.grievanecs
to such frail hadris.
Gen. Taylor,' assuredly, .cannot charge"
the .Gaverninerftiat home with a neglect of
his, services. He was but a lineal Colonel
in the army, with" Brevet of Brigadier .Gen
eral, when he marched down to Corpus
Christi. Galin% Brady; Brook, and. I be

less implicit retiance on the valor, skill and
patriotism of a. Taylor.
After the haft .s of Palo Alto and Resaca
de la Palma, the President at once promo
ted him to the rank of Brevet Major Gen
eral, and then created fur him the office of
Major berternl, khe highest grade the Exec
utive could codex within his coustitutional
power. Did this look like a want of confi
dence, or a disppsition on the part of the
War Department not to exert themselves in
meeting all his ileaSonable wishes, and sup
plyiug the army which had so gloriously
sustained the natiotial honor, with the :re
quired provisions and ammunition. That
there may have been some delay, I will not
venture to deny ; hut Congress and the
people will judge of the fact, whether the
Department hasi done its duty in the premi
