Letters'haveljen received in the capital
fromFn Luis Pbtosi, announcing that the
goverment of thO State had promulgated 'II
decrelint every • citizen should take up
arms, do d that the lenthusiastn to defend
theinselvOs was very great. 'There were
about, fourthuusaid troops of the army of
the North Olen' in the city. Gen. Taylor,
they stippOsed, was to move upbb them from
Saltillo abtait'the lsi - of May.
Since the the diligencia went out at noon
to-day for Vera Cruz, another diligencia has
,in from the city of Mexico full of pas
sengers, and bringing news of not a little
importance. • Among the passengers was
.Mr. Kennedy, who after being badly treated
here about the first of April, was driven to
the, City of Mexico.'
All the passengers confirm what I wrote
you ;this morning. They say that nt the
capital there was no Government, no order,
no responsibility—all was nnarchy. Anaya
was still President pro tem; but had neither
influence nor authority. A new President
is to be eleCted on the 15th. of the present
month—the tenth Chief Ma p gistrate this dis
tracted country has had within the . last
eightken triontbs. I cannot stop to count
them up, but such is the fact.
The ladrones--guerrillas I suppose they
should be called now—are busily at work
upon the roads, especially between Puebla
and the!city of Mexico. the same passen
gers were robbed no less Oran six limes in
te same stage, and the inference is that the
last robbers must have had rather poor pick
ing if the first were very searching in their
operations. The diligenCia in which Mr.
Kennedy came down wai robbed twice on
the road.

Santa Anna I has sent a .letter to Congress
from Orizaba. He gives! his Own account
of the battle of CerrwGordo, and claims a
great victory on the first dny of the fight. On
the second day Providence, - according to his
story, gave the advantage to the Yankees.
He says nothing about the exertions- of the
latter. Santa Anna states that he now has
seven thousand men, and that his force is
rapidly increasing ; and moreover that all
are burning to encounter the Americans
again. He wants money to carry on his
operations, but Congress has not seen fit to
vote him a copper—one reason, probably,
that it has not a copper to give: Santa An

who has been spoken!of as a candidate for

WEST BATON. ROUGE, L., May 15th, 1847
WM. L. HODGE, Eso—Dear Sir: I send
you, annexed, an extract of a letter, which
I have recently received from Gen. Taylor ;
and as it shadows forth the feelings and
views of the General, on the subject of the
next Presidency, in a manner - which can do
no violence to the feelings of any one, I
have determined to have published that por•
tion of it which rAlates to a subject in•which
his name has been very generally asslociated
throughout the country for some time. past.
Edo so, with more .readiness, because it
is calculated to give a prOper insight into
the real character of this eminent man.—
Please let it have a place in your columns:
Yours, very sincerely and respectfully.
" In regard to the Presidency, I will not
say that I would not serve, ifThe good peo
ple of the country were to require nip to do
so, however much it is opposed to my wish
es, for I am free to say, that I have no as
pirations for the situation. My greatest,
perhaps, only wish, is to bring, or i aid in
bringing this war to a speedy and honora
ble close. It has ever been, and still is, my
anxious wish, that some one of the most ex
perienced, talented and vigorouS statesmen
of the country, Should be chosen to that high
place at the next election. I am satisfied
that; if our friends will do their duty, such a
citizen may be elected.
• "II must, however, be allowed to sey, that
I have not the vanity to consider myself
qualified for so high and responsible a
tion, and whilst. we have far more eminent
and i deserving names before the country, I
shodld prefer to stand aside, if one of them
could be raised to the first office in the gift
of a free people.
" I go for the country, the whole couniry
—and it is my ardent and sincere Ivislt to
see the individual placed at the head of the
nation, who, by a strict observance of the
constitution, (be he whom he_ may,) can
make us most prosperous at home, as well
as most respected abroad."

Illinois Volunteers arrived at N. Orleans—
Guerilla Attack upon Dragoon EAcamp
ment—Seven Killed and Three Wounded
-Captain Walker in Pursuit of Ma
rauders—The Vomito.
An arrival at New Orleans brings one day
later inteligence from Vera Cruz. ; Seven ,
etimpanies of the Third Illinois- regiment
have reached New Orleans by this arrival.
There are no further accounts from 'the
army advancing on the Capital.
The Picayune gathers a few items of in
terest from Major Count de Bongars, aid to
Gen.,Sheilds, who has arrived at New Or
leans. He brings the information that on
the night the vessel sailed from Vera ,Cruz,
"a small party of American dragoons were,
surprised ut Santa Fe, a small village, four
teen miles from Vera Cruz, by a band of
31exican robbers or guerillas. There were
eleven dragoons in the party, and all asleep
but the sentinel. The Mexicans rushed
upon him, when his piece missed fire and was
unable to give the alarm . . A scuffle, ensued
in which the sentinel was killed. The guer
illas then dashed upon the rest of the party,
by this time issuing from their tent, sir
of whom were killed and three wounded ;
only one escaping unhurt.
As soon as the news of this affair ireached.
Vera Cruz, Captain Walker, with his rifles,
were ordered in pursuit of the marapders.-
The apprehended attack upon Vera Cruz,
by Santa Anna, has been entirely dispelled.

Splendid Naval Vietory'4
We have received intelligence by the ar
riVal of the Caledonia, of one of der most
splendid naval victories .ever acheivad under .
the American flag.
The accounts say that the U. S. Sloop -of-
War Jamestown, Commodore Forbes, on the
12th of April, made a gallant attack on the
city of cork, in Ireland, which resnited in
the unconditional surrender of the place to
our brave tars. The passage of the James
tosin we, so short fr this country; the
city l eame nigh being taken by sut'prise.—
We learn that, the appearance before the
city caused great excitement among the for
ces of the enemy and that "Rear Admiral
Sir H. Pigott despatched an officer to see
if any, immediate assistance was required."
The alarm was rung by the " bells cif Shan
non.," And of the "Cathedral," arid a "re
quisition was promptly prepared, calling on
the mayor to ISUMIXIO4 a meeting of the citi
zens- to devise measures for the attack." It
was subsequently agreed to attempt to carry
the ship by boarding, " and a deputation of
the gentry of Cork," was detailed for, that
purpose. •
The attack upon the city is said to have
been one of the most brilliant exploits in the
Motor" , of ineratime , Wer. ' Every shot from
the ship-appeared to f ten upon . the city and
