The newspapers, far and near, are rilled with mroors relative to the creation of the oflice of Lieutenant General of the ariny; the appointment of the Hon Thomas H. Benton to that office ; the creation of a Peace Commission ; and thi appointment of the Hon. T. H- Benion, the Hon. J. J. Crittenden, aiul Gov. S.las Wright ?s the Commissioners to proceed to Mexico with tlio Army. &c., &e., &.e. 1 here is proi ably more gammon than truth in these rumois. They first appeared in certain prints whoso editors roll up their eyes in honor of the w:-.r. These editors, or their prompters, had an object iti view in circulating the leports. Whit may bo done hereafter in relation to the acquisition of peoci with Mexico, is more than i< probably known, even in Washington; and our private opinion is that these rumors are thrown out more for effect on the administration, and to accomplish what the reports sta'e is already settled upon ns the course of the government, than to give correct intelli^enco to the public. Although the President und his cabinet may re c )mmend the creation of the otfice of Lieutenant General, and may, indeed, send a commission with 1 hi army, to negotiate for a peace, whenever the Mfi ears are whipped into the necessity of 1', we do not think, from the present aspect of the hor ron, ?Uat Col Benton will have much to do with either the Lieutenant Generalship or with the Boa id oi Commissioners. It will be recollected, that be opposed the administration on the Oregon q;te*'ion, und did not at all act with the government on that of annexation. Is it likely. therefore, in a political paint of view, that t ie President will go so far us to appoint him to the command in chief tho army and navy in the war with Mexico? We do not believe that Prelidonl P?!L- /?r . u ? I - ? ) VI uiij vtuui x icoiunil, WUUIU quite so far as ihis. We do not believe that he would give any man a chance to overthiow, at one dash of his per, all his plans and ex- 1 pectations for the country. We will admit, however, that the barometer of politics is liable to great and sudden changes ; sometimes too great ; and sudden for human ambition. The aspect of the war question in Washington is, at presen', more interesting than ever. The whig-, and those opposed to the war, are full of something; it may be a little thunder cloud. Thunderclouds in winter, however, are scare*, but they are said to b.> the more dangerous. But we sh.ill see what we *hall sets. The C?ptnre < f i-arras. The last advices from Mexico men'ion the occupation of Parras, by Gen. Wool's division.? Tnis town does not contain moro than lour or five thousand inhabitant, and it is pleasantly Miuoiea. Wo learn that the country, for many miles r >und. once belonged to a single individual?Uie Marquis of Avuayo j but having become emharr;is?ed in his circumstances, lie afsigned liis estate to his creditor*, the principal of whem was Tagle, President of the Mexican Congress. Tagle forthwith sold tue estate to Daring Brothers, one of which (I'm happened to be in Mexico at the time. ButTaule had many enemies in Congress, and to annoy him?they passed a law prohibiting i foreigners from owning real estate in Mexico. The consequence was, that the sale to the Barings was cancelled, and the estate remainrd on Tttgle's hands till 1840, when he sold it to a native Mexican (or a mere fraction ol its value. The country around Parrns has been truly called "the gnnary of Northern Mexico." Not only does it produce corn and wheat, but also grapes, that rival in tinvor those of Malaga ? All sorts of cattle abound thero, especially t sheep. Immense flocks of this animal were '? - 1 -* vii/ ui iviexiro, ior sale there. When the Marquis of Aguayo was proprietor of the Parras estates, be used to Hive his agent in the city of Mexico, the sheep's feet as a perquisite. It is said that the ascent gave his daughter a very handsome portion?the proceedsof the sale of these sheep's feet. But why ha? General Wool gone to Parras 1 Any person, by looking at the map of Mexico, will perceive that this town is not in the direct road from Mouclova to Saltillo. Monclova is due north of Palrillo; while Parras is a good many m-les to the westward. The road through Parras is at h-ast a hundred miles longer than that through Anelo. Wo do not doubt that Wool has good reasons for preferring tho Parrni road ; it is probably less precipitous than the other, and pisses through a more fertile tract of country. But may there not be two Parrasses in the deI nrtment of Chihuahua, just as there are two Moutereys in Mexico I ^uch a tiling is not impossible. The New York Pilot*. We believe that the virulence malignity with which the New York pilots are assailed by their opponent*, here and tWewhere, are unparal* j leled Not satisfied with what they have done to uccomplish their object, they tax their ingenuiy to aiscoior laois, sua put on them the worst pliasis mossiblo, to break down those hardy and honest men. hop? and trust, and we siucerely beHave that they will be overreached, as they will be if thfr* is auy josuco under Heaven. We take pleasure in exposing to Congress and to the world, oni of their movenienu. When the Merchant Pilot Association was formed, by what is ealied tho Chamber of Commerce, they ap- . pointed a board of gentlemen, whom they face' ' tiously s ylcd a Board of Examining Oncers, or oommis?ioners, whose duty It was, we believe, to i investigate the claims of persons applying lor licenses to act as pilots. In order to give more j importance to this board, they made Commodore Jonee, of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, one of their 1 number,with the view of having it go forth that the government was inclinrd towards the Merchan1 Pilots, and repudiated the old New York pilots. They ha*e endeavored to make capi al from this; but we have the satisfaction of informing all roncerued, and particularly the committee ol Congress who now Lave before them the peti. tion of the New York pilots and others, for the repeal ol the law. of 1887, that Commodore Joues although elected to this ?MUt honorable station, is not a member of this self-constituted board, or at least .f he is a membe? that he dees and cannot, act as such without disregarding the dirroti&p# of Mr. Bancroft* the late Secretary of t4*? N?v/. Xu?t i>enti*Tejui beipg ru?d? tiwara of the un'i vlyn;>jx?ition thatwiisortfamznl ag*in?t ' thr< New York pilet?, very properly forbid Comni < lote acting as a member of this board. The d.iy will toon come when the enemies of the old pilot# will be exhibited to tho world in their t ho litfht. We ar? /lad u> perceive that the Hon Mr. Mac I ay is actively engaged in laying tlie inntter out lor Conure^. That geniemnn we believe, never deserts his friends when h? it s ire ilia', their cause i* jus*; and of the justice of the>! of the New York pilots, he has often nnd often giveu his unqualified assent and opinion. Thoje who aro acquainted with h m in his district, state that the pilots have a warm friend jnhiin. It s> ves us pleasure to stn'e this, lor more reasons than one. is well known here as possessing, in an eminent degree, all the essential requisites of a soldier, as | well as intellectual qualifications ofa high order. The necessity of sending a mounted force to California, is obvious to all who have taken care j to make themselves well acquainted with its history and condition. Although it is not probable that any invasion oi that country will be made by Mexico, it would nevertheless he a favorite point of attack in the event of a contest with any of the maritime powers of Europe, and in such a ease a 1 force of this naturo would be indispensiblc. But j i' is not with a view to such contingencies that we advocate this necessity; lar stronger claims are f resented by the unsettled state of the country, : and the total absence of security for life and preperty, which has long, and will long disgrace that | line but delenceless region, unless a force, suited ' to iho nature of the country, and the peculiar service its wants demand, bo at once sent out by our government L'ght dragoons a:o the only force really available for th#so important objects, they can best pursue, aid overtake in their prairie and mountain haunts, the numerous bands of Indians and robbers who have so long been the dread of the farmers and peaceful inhabitants of the counuy, and the rapidity of whose movements can alone bo equalled by a force of this description. For such service as this, and this is i the kind of service (or which a military body is ) really wanted in California. Security far li'e and property?a blessing never enjoyed under the Mexican rule?will tend grea'ly to attach the mixed population of that region to our government and people, and accelerate the tide of emigration thither. The economy of sending this regiment will lie apparent, for upon the terms on which they offer to serve, there will only bo the expense of sending them out; whereas. United States trooDi would have to bo brought back, as well a* sent , out, or kept there at great cost to the government and country; while this regiment, for a mere consideration of lands, would, after the war is over, continue to provide, without any expense to our ' government, not only the kind of military body , exactly suited to the exigencies of the country, i but a permanent police of the very best kind, the members ol which being owners themselves of the soil, and resident thereon, will have the highen incentives to effectually protect it ; and will, at the rame time, increase the value of lamd, and give an impetus to civilization and commerce ' , Even the expense of sending out this regiment : might be reduced to u mere trifle, by employing ! it lirst in Mexico, in the operations destined ' i against San Luis de Potosi, or the city of Mexico, and after its services in the war aro no longer required, fending it on from Acapulco, or some of j the neighboring ports on the Pacific, in some of I thevess'ls of the United iftatcs cruising along I that coast, or the merchantmen constantly en-' gaged there in the hide trade. The fact that the horses of California are better adapted to tlio na- i turo of the country, and far cheaper than nny ' which can be impotted into it, while it renders the expense of transporting these animals unne- ! cessaty, presents a most favorable opportunity | for employing the description of force so much ! needed there. The popularity of sending this regiment would ' be undoubted, as the terms on which it offers to i serve will cost the country n mere trifle, and must \ men of Whr laying in Alvarado. the St Anna an<l Mcxicano.

I ho repotted ma*flacr? of ono hundred and fifty mrn of tho American squadron in the Pacillc, by Indians and Mexican?, at Ciudad do los AtiKolos, whether true or lalse, furnishes us pioof of tho necessity there exists t>r our government employing a competent force of mounted men to keep these wild vagabonds in I check, and protect Hie inhabitants, us well as our im^iants, from t^ieir violence. If the regiment of mounted men recently organized in this city, and commanded by Colonel Dull", were 011 duty there, no outrages of this kind would be heard of. It is immaterial in one point of view whether tho report of this massacre be true or not. The nature jf the country, and its liability to bo 1 overrun by predatory parties of Indians and Mexicans, is sufficient to warrant the employment of a force of this kind. This regiment proposes to sorve to tho end of , the Mexican war, in California, as a mounted force, to bo armed and equipped here, and mounted on arrival there ; and after the termination of the war, in consideration of moderate grants of land there, permanently settl* in Upper California,' keep up their organization, and serve without further pay or recompense lor five years, o<" tsach time as tho government may deem advisable for the defence of the country, and especially for tho protection of life and property from Indian depredations. They would, if preferred, serve first in Mexico, either as a mounted or dismounted force, but desire linally t?> reach Upper California and settln there, where they would, a'so, if desricd by th? government at Washington, contract to publUh a journal in the English and Spanish languages, devoted to tho extension of American republican principles, and the cultivation of feelings of goosl will aud confidence, amongst the mixed population of that country, towards the government and peoplo of the United States. In the ranks of this regiment, are many mechanics and farmers; among the officers many profensional'and well educated men. The "^olonel .

In tho afternoon, we heard different clmiej is geography. elementary philosophy, arithmetic, history?ancient and moderL?and astronomy, examined by thuir different teachers, and that they were sotisfictory, is the laai-t of what we could say of thorn. We sat by ore pu-' pil, a sweet girl of 13, Miss Susan Mr Lane, as she ] ertormed her sums in long division, and the accuracy and rapidity with which her delicate Angers worked their way on the prepared slate, would have shamed many es'ing students of doable her ago. After the scholastic exercises for the afternoon were concluded, wo strolled through the apartment* appropriated to the manufacture and keeping of article" by the inmate) of the establishment. One room wai filled with paj>er boxes, carpeting, baskets and mats, and other things made by the pupil*; some of whom earn, during the course of the year, a very resectable sum. In the evening, a numciotii audience was collected in the cbapel, which, by-the-by, had been most tastefully decorated with evergreens, to listen to the music from the pupils, and to the examinations in tha kiger branches of study. The muiic was of the usual excellent character, and we observed that our young friend Kunisky, so well known to the public, has taken up the ootave flute as his favorite instrument. Though a boy of but ten or eleven years of age, he has mora music in him than many of tar superior pretensions. On the organ he is a perfonner ol no little talent Mr. Chamberlain examined a class in political economy, which wai peculiarly ready and correct in its answers; but the members will most decidedly vote the demooratio ticket if Way land is to be their viiidA Othar rlasiita nrMm ?vamin?(! hv thffir t^nrhrrfl Messrs.

The auJiencu were agreeably surprised by an address from Mi;s Crosby, at the close of the evening, which, though rather Folkish for our neutral columns, ue give at length. Wa might say that Miss C. is deprived of sight, and an inmate of the institution, but her almost imnromptu address shows that the light of poesy shines within her. Dear friends, pray do not think me rude, If en yourpaticnae (intrude A lew brief moments; for the mtiM Hath bade mo apeak. If I refuia, I might the consequences dread? For once her wings in anger spread, To woo her back the task weie vaicj She'd never sweep my lyre again: So by your leave I will obey. .Now for my subject, grave or gay; Kind goddeaa, that sho leaves to ite. I snust decide; well, let me see? I'll touch on both, if you've a mind; To please you all I'm well inclined, And if I fail, why then I must? I'll seal my lips an?t in the dust Hide my diminished head, nor dare Again before you to uppeai. I'll seek kome weeping willow tree, And bid farewell to poesy.
