(From the Now Orleans Delta, April 7.] The veteran Twiggs has alroady advanced on the road that leads to the capital of the AI toes, lie commands the vanguard ofthe army which is to realize the popular idea of revelling in the halls of the Montezuma*. Our own Smith loads the division, with his gallant rifles, and a nobler corps has never marched under our hauner; and a strong body of regular infantry and artillery, amounting. In all. to 9,600 strong, bring np the main body. Thirty miles from Vera Cruz, the river Antigua is spanned by a noble bridge, built of stone, with lofty arches, and guarded iby a strong fort, which commands the road for a long distance. This bridge is associated with some of the most gallant displays of Mexican courage and patriotism. Here it was the brave Victoria, with a small band of peasants, kept at hay tho Spanish armies,'and cut off the convoys of their treasures and provisions. The post is a strong one, and if defended with skill and vigor, will give our army much trouble. It is said that La Vegaeommands the force at the Puerto Naclonal, and is determined to Justify by some brilliant deed tho high expectations excited by his manly bearing at Kesaca de la Palma. But it will be vain. The impetus which our military strength and confidence have receivod from the previous success of our army, will bear it triumphantly over all the obstacles of Mexican valor and fervor. This bridge passod. the road lies open, and unobstructed to the lovely eity of Jalaps. Here our hardy veterans, accustomed to the low marshy vallev ofthe Rio Ornndo and the arid plains of C'oahiiila and Nuevo Leon, like the republican army of Napoleon, after passing the frigid and rugged heights of H<m Bernard, and pitching their tents in the smiling vale of the Aruo, will suddenly find themselves transported into a region of surpassing beauty, fertility and suluhrity Here they may stretch their war-worn frames on beds of roses anil violets, and feast thuir senses on all that is rich and beautiful in nature. The cool, bracing air of tho mountain mingles with the soft, health-giving broeze from the Gulf, and the combination produces an atmosphere of perpetual spring. Hero will flock the poor tionanntji with tho vnrimii nrriduro nf (hia rts?h vaIIcv with inexhuustible supplied of lusciona fruit and nutritious food, But delightful as the seen* and'it* pleasures are. our army should not rest h?rc longer than to refresh their tired bodies and repair the damage of the hard service on the sandhills of Vera Crus. and of the mareli from the sea-shore. A summer encampment would be highly detrimental to the moralr of our army. The hardy natures and rough habits of our soldiers would run riot in the luxurious abundance of Jalapa. Onward, onward, must be the cry. Continual activity is the true secret of military discipline. Soldiers are always happier, and more obedient and docile under the excitement Of a march, than when in camp under the dominion of idleness and enntM. There is no reason why our army should stop for any longth of time ut Jalapa. The summer in this high region is mild and temperate, the road is levol and beautiful, and the country through which it passes Is fertile and productive. In ten days our army could march from Jalapa to the city of Mexico. Here, w* think, the enemy would offer uo resistance, the city not admitting of any effective defence against artillery If the Mexicans wero determined not to yield their capital without a blow, it would be struck before our army arrived'withln sight of the city. But with a force of 10.000 strong, we do not apprehend any serious diffl: cuity in taking the capital. Once possessed of this famous El Dorado of our soldiers, this magnificent city of the noble race who fell beneath the bloody sword of Cortes, we shall then be prepared to listen to tho overtures of the enemy for peace, or If such overtures are not made with all due humility, to take possession of the whole republic as the lawful spoils of war, and to govern It with the laws of our republic.

Of course in so short a time after leaving the great city, you cannot expeot much news,and indeed, all I can give is, in reference to this vessel. I do not know whether you were aware of the prognostications made by many persons previous to our departure from New York; butsir.lf you wore, as well us a largo portion of our friends, must be desirous to bear from us, for many were the doubtful looks and expressions ventured as to whether she would ever cross the < Julf stream. Tainful as those expressed doubts were to the friends of the little band that composed her crew, yet were they frequently made, and iudeod. tome were advised to leave her, If possible to do so. But oar country called for our services to defend her rights, and although from the ominous look of many an experienced eye in naval affairs, we were disposed to doubt the capacity of the steamer for weathering the storm, yet all were willing to brave the battle and the breeze. And accordingly wo sailed from New York on the 4th Inst, In company with the steamer Scorpion. The evening of our departure, we left astern our rompanion, as she could nut keep up with us. and on the third day we experienced quite severe weather. AU on board anxiously watched the movements of the little steamer when the bad weather commenced, and we Soon found that all wan right, for the mounted the big seas like a duck; and during the greater part of our passage, notwithstanding that the weather was bad aud the sea running pretty high, yot was her quarter deck dry. Of course tho wind being generally ahead, our passage has been longer than we had hoped for We arrived yesterday, making it a 13 days passage. The Scorpion is not yet in, but we look for her momentarily. I had forgotten to say one thing, that is. that notwithstanding the doubts as to thn capacity of this vessel for sea service, that not even a spare sail was put on board for cases of emergency; this omission looks much as if it was thought she would never arrive In port again, and therefore not necessary to goto farther expense in fitting | her out. The sails are all old; scarcely is there a common droger upon the ocean that hns not spore sails. With rogard to other matters, they are very delicate? so excuse mo. We sail for Vera Crux in throe or fonr days?we would leave sooner, but deficiencies must bo made up, for we are undergoing .repairs in the boilors ; we have found them. also, lu a bad condition, Ac. Ac. Commodore Terry passed this place some days ago. on his way to the squadron. We shall hope for a pleasant passage to Vera Crux, and when there.

In this contest the whigs did not expect a further victory than the defeat of the nativist party, which is composed almost exclusively of quasi whigs They little expected. however, to find their old opponents so strong as the latter turned out to be; nativism In this city, it is generally thought. 1s now defunct, and henceforth the battle will be betwocn the two old parties In bringing about the result of this election the demo rntlc paper here, the Union, exerted a very considerable agency.

Through [lie unwearied exertions of the f'riion. these, in a great raeasure, have been healed, and the party now arts with i unanimity which attests its real strength A dreadful disaster occurred yesterday morning abont Lwo.ou board the steamer Simon Kenton, while the l>oat was lying by, temporarily, at (larksville, on the upper Mississippi. Ono of the connecting pipes broke, as It is upposed, from the settling of the machinery,and the steam escaping among the crew and deck passengers, several norsons were badly scalded. Among the number was a Sir. Mead, of Keokuck. who died of his injuries, a few hours after the accident. One of the engineers, also, was badly scalded, and five or more of the deck passengers.

A dreadful rencontre took place ut Quincy, llliuoit. on Saturday evening last.

Cause?financial difficulties. A harrid outrage was committed in a neighboring county. Kranklin. a few days since. A slave, belonging to a widow lady of the town of Washington, went to the housa of a German family, in the night, and forced an entrance. The only members of tne family at home were a woman and child, a small hoy. The villain first attempted the death of the child by cutting its throat ? He then dragged the woman from the bed. and after beating her severely with a mallet, vlolatod her person She was found next morning nearly lifeless. The child, too. was desperately injured, but will probably, with its mother, recover. The tlend who perpetrated this hellish act is in prison. Ho has been indicted for rape and attempting to commit murder, and will bo tried on the third Monday in Juno, if popular vengeance should not overtake him before that time.

More Particulars of the Explosion at l)rpont's Powder Mills.?The explosion occurred in the packing house and press rootn of the establishment. But it ia impossible even to conjecture In which the lire originated. It was lucky that uo valuable machinery was contained in either of these buildings ; but the loss of life is shocking in the extreme. In a single Instant eighteen of our fellow men have been hurried to the grave. One who bad been found horribly mutilated, but uuablo to speak, tliough still breathing, has since died The bodies wero so torn to pieces that It was impossible to recoguixc them, and no other uiuans existed of ascertaining who were lost and who were saved, than by calling the roll (after ringing the l>ell) of those attached to that portion of the works. The silence which follow, ed the calling of the unanswered names, was the only evidenae of the loss of the lives of those who so often re plied when they were called One man who had bis leg broken, at a long distance from the scene of tne occurrence, by being struck with a pieco of timber, is the only one wounded who survived, as far as could be ascertained. The place where tho buildings in which the explosion occurred stood, is left as bare and desolate as though the work of human labor and skill had nnver been expeuded upon it. A few loose stones, fragments of mortar, black and charred splinters, constitute every thing that remains to indicate tho exact position which Lliev so re. cwntly occupied. The amount of powder exploded, it is believed by the owner*, did not exceud .'i.OOO pounds. The pecuniary loss is comparatively small . although the glass ix shattered from the windows. and the plastering stripped in a great degree from the ceilingx and walls of the houxex for a mile around. We xaw many windows blown In entire. In some of the large residences of the Messrs Dupont. not u window Ih left perfect, aud on same sides they are all blown entirely out. M ur.h glass wax broken at the distance of a mile and a half. The screams and lamentations of the women and children were truly heart-rending They were heard bewailing their dreadful loss at the dinluncc of more than a mile The coroner held an inquest on the mangled and blackened remains of the killed. Verdict according to the facts as already detailed. It is said of one of the Messrs. Dupont. that he maintained his position upon the top of a building in which three hundred kegs of powder wore stored, while the roof was on fire, and by this art of undaunted heroism, succeeded in quenching the llauies with the water which was supplied him In buckets from below, before the (ire communicated to tlie powder within, and thus, doubtless, preserved many valuable lives Those killed have almost universally left wives and children. They were among the most valuable and successful hands attached to these great works ; many of them were men of Independent means - Ft'i'/mington Del (intttl* It is usual at the mills to have two sets of hands, one employed in the day. and the other in th" night About six o'clock, yesterday morning, as they were about relieving the night hands, and souie twenty-eight individuals were In the mills, from some cause as yet unknown, the packing house and press room suddenly exploded Two distinct explosions, it Is said, were heard, causer) probably by the buildings exploding in succession ami not simultaneously It is carious to notice the power of tbs subtle agent whirh produced all this mischief which mny be Inferred from the fact that a gentleman who resides live miles to the north of this city distinctly felt the eoneusslon.androralong time wondered whnt produced it The powder mills are. situated about 3.1 miles south of Philadelphia, and the vibrations produced in the atoms pliers by the explosion extended sensibly a distance of nearly 40 miles from the spot Kortunati ly for the other buildings, the amount of powrlrr at tbu mills was not so great as usual. The owners, who are contractors with the t'nited States government for supplying powder to the nrmy in Mexico, bad sent olf a large quantity to that destination, else the effects would have been as terribly destructive as they were some twenty-eight years ago. when the explosion followed from one building of the mills to another until it rearbad the magaxiuc. when a most terrible destruction was produced.
