The Fears of the Engliih Ail* tor racy of the Prosperity of the I'nltr.d Ht*te*_ Ho Yemeni* of the (^oacn?The Fashionable Heaaou? The Uellgtoa of Europe. last accounts from tlie United States, wliich were up to the 1st inst., have created no utirhere. The story of the Mexican war, and | the entire conquest of that country, with the poeaeseion of the capital, are generally received j with resignation in public, but with increasing i bitterness and chagrin in private political circles. I Home of the London lournals are becinninu to i give wuy to what they look upon as a manifest 1 destiny; but among the English aristocracy a f spirit of jealousy is begining to be awakened to- 1 wards the United States, which never has been felt in any former age. ~-? A few days ago an incidental debate took plnee ( t:i the Mouse of Lords, during which Lord Ellen- ] borough and Lord Brougham, botti lords of the ' modern breed, developed this new feeling of dis- 1 like towards the United States, which has grown ' out of the success achieved in the Mexican war. Ellenborough's remarks are measured and calm ?Brougham's words are rude and impertinent, accusing the American government of every kind of unprincipled conduct, and couched in the most insolent language. These ebullitions muy be considered the first symptoms of the new fears which have come over the British aristocracy, (which is the government,) at the prospect of the tide of affairs on the American continent The American republic is now acknowledged to be agreat and powerful nation?a nation equal to give a new impulse to the affairs of the world. Lord Brougham's bitter feelings towards the United States are particularly remarkable. Thi? man is a sort of leaky old womar, who lets out the secrets of the aristocracy in public; and I have no doubt but the recent campaigns in Mexico have been frequent topics of discussion witii U/i>lli nrrlAn imrt all lll.i loiwll nif riulfii-rurtll nf England. They have taken a Hiidden alarm at the singular development of. the growth and power of the United States, and begin already to fear the revival in thib country of a greater and more dangerous republic than that whicli France presented at the clone of the last century. Lord John Russell, indeed, made a parade of thanks to the United States for the magnificent subscriptions raised for the starving Irish?but it was a forced species of thanks, which he could not well avoid. The real (sentiments of the British government and aristocracy break out on other occasions, and in oth r quarters. The brief debate I ha\e ill,id .1 to in one?and another took place in the Common*, when Lord Palmerston threatened evnry*country with reprisals that did not pay their debts. But the broadest development hats come from certain portions of the periodical press ; and denunciations of the bitterest kind may be now expected fur years to come, on the audacity of ' the United State* going to war with Mexico, 1 and particularly for defeating all their generals and all th<>ir armies in succession, in opposition j to British wishes and predictions. , Parliament will soon be brought to a closc.? , Almost every night the ministry is hastening . this event, by aubandoning some measure, or 1 trying to hasten another. But since the repeal I of the corn laws, not a question is now touched that has any connection with the great progress of civilization or of human rights. The House of Commons, during the whole session, have been engaged in the most meagre or local questions of the day, not one of which touches the real evils of society, or will prevent some terrible catastrophe from taking place when the time is a little riper. The Queen nnd court are now at the Isle of Wight, but will return to town in a few days,?to dissolve Parliament. Then will commence th* electioneering campaign tor the next I'.irliament, luring which time the Queen intends to visit Scotland again, and afford Prince Albert a Henson to slioot grouse on the Highland moors. What the new Parliament will be no one can tell. All the old parties are broken to pieces, and I should not be surprised to sec set of men returned, of more radical and republican principles than have been known since IW2H. The spirit of party, and the principles,also, that spring (roni the old revolution, have both been exhausted, and England is on the edge of a new ocean, with a boundless horinon before her. The same may be said ol France and all Europe, as far as the Vistula, but no farther. The fashionable season here is al>o coming to & close Both the Italinn operas are yet fully attended, and it is astonishing to see how wmiderfulfy th?y draw. But the truth i.-, the Englith theatre is considered vulgar and low. and none ?>t the higher classes are ever seen at an English play. All those who reside here, or visn during u. ...? _,u? e..11... ,i.. ,|. u. Liiv, itnbibe the ideas of taste which guide them, and accordingly oniy visit the Italian opera and ballrt Of course the lower classes only are tound at the ordinary English theatres?and this accounts for the low character and vulgar traits which mark the present theatrical literature of England- None of the great actors or actresses of the day make any money in.London; they only 1/ make a name, and their only hope of future independence is tn the provinces, or in the United States. The Keans have, just returned with a large fortune from the Uniti d States, and have now retired to a country residence in Hampshire. Fanny Kemble has begun a second career, but he made her first appearance out of London She relied on her former reputation, but it it \ doubted whether she will have much success J have a very long and n very curious account to give one of these day*, on the state of piety and religion throughout Euro|>e. 1 have been uu attentive observer of this matter wherever 1 have been?in France, in Iuly. in Germany, in England, and elsewhere. Europe in divided into two large sects of Christians?Protestant and Catholic ; but in l>oini of piety and morality, I um persuaded there is very little difference between them. There is more real religion in the I'nited States; and this arises from the fact, that there every sect have to support their own clergymen. But in Euro|>e, the utmost indifference, if not something worse, exists among ihe great mass of the population towards all religion. Both high and low, edu* cated and i/norant, exh'bit this indifference, almost amounting to unbelief. Throughout the continent?in Jtaly, France, Germany?both Catholic and Protestant?the old churches arc exhibited at all hours, as curiosities, for hire; and the very clergymen pocket the money thus collected from the travellers. None seem to po to church to perform their devotions, except old women, old men. itnd vounir children. Tin kings, emperors, and other high official personages, of both sexes, affect to be pious, and attend religious services ; but the great bulk of the educated and intelligent are just *i8 indifferent as the same classes were in the old Roman world, in the age of Augustus. This leads many to suppose that the present spirit and system of Christianity have nearly expired, and that we are on the verge of some new revelation that is required to set the world afresh on its legs. There is a sect of Hebrews in Paris who say that the Messiah is now positively coming. Cutting the Telki;rai h Wirks.?We lind the following paragraph in the Boston Traveller of the 8d inst t? It will b? remembered that the telegraphic communication between Boston and New York was interrupted soon after the arrival of the steamer yesterday. It now appears that the wires were deliberately cut, and that tke offending parties were roguti in broadcloth, and perhaps speculators In breadstuff!!. Yesterday forenoon, a party of laborers upon the Worcester railroad were proceeding in a band car from Newton to Needham. and had nearly reached a deep cut. a mile or so from Needham depot, when they perceived two or three men with a stick forccd in between the two telegraphic wires, which they were attempting to twist, so us to break the wire. The laborers immediately got off from tfcelr oar and endeavored to approach the wire-breakers without being seen, in order to arrest them. Just as they got within a short distance, however, they were observed by the guilty parties, who immediately plunged into the woods near by. They were pursued by the laborers, who, however, lost track of them, but found a horse and ohaise tied tc a tree Determined that they should not escape, i striot watch was kept upon the woods for several Sours. At length voices were heard, and a man appeared, genteelly dressed, who was immediately accosted vith the inquiry whether the chaise belonged to him le answered no, and before the laborers could make up heir minds to arrest him, decamped. Late in the afterloon, the chance of capturing the wire-cutters wan [iven up ; the horse and chaise, however, were left in the roods, and remained there this morning. Steamship G-uadku{tjiver.?This vessel, unier command of Capt. Ilosken, which was anlounced to leave Liverpool for this city on the SOthof July, will not, we understand, sail until the 10th inst., and therefore may not be looked for before the 25th or 26th. Where is KitteryI?In answer to this <|uestion, the Portsmouth (N. II.) Gazette of the 3d inst., says, in part:? The New York Herald is surprised that the construc tion of the new war steamers should have been ordered at Kittery, and enquires?" Where in Kittery?" If the editor will take a trip thU way we will soon show him. The ' New Hampshire Navy Yard," which ex-Governor Colby spoko of in his first and last message, is situated in Kittery. It is situated on the eastern bank of the Piscataqua opposite Portsmouth. State Elections.?Congressional elections are to be held to clay in North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Theatrical*. Park Theatre.?If last night gave token of the future, the manager will have nq reason to complain of the theatrical season which has just opened at the Park. Going in before the curtain rose, we had an opportunity to observe the painting, Sic. of the interior of the bouse. Since the last season, a new face has been put upon every thing, from pit to dome, drop curtain, prosccaium and all have been painted with new designs, and jvery thing made as comfortable as possible in and about ;ho boxes. The opera of ''Linda of < hamouni ' in EnClisb, drew almost, if not quite, as full a house as did the tulian opera, when produced at the saino place. Thu trima donna, Madame Anne Bishop, was warmly weliomed when she first came out, and when she had ;iven evidenco of her vocal powers and musi;al skill, the applause of the audience was increased to enthusiasm. Some of her arias were noored and bouquets in profusion were thrown upon .he stage by her delighted auditors. At the end of the lecond act she was called out and came before the cur;?in to receive the congratulations of the assemblage 4er voice is set down as toprano ijnguln, pure aod xpressive. She certainly Mugs with much feeling, and tier time is unexceptionable It is of course impossible .0 say. upon on* bearing only, what sort of abiding impressions she will 1. ave; but of the first impre.-sion we mu!>t speak favorably. Mr Krazer, as Vicomte de Sirval, Vlr Brough as Antouio.and Mrs Bailey, as Pierotto. all icquitted themselves well and were handsomely applauded by tbeir bearers. We Bball iipeak of their uerits separately hereafter. In the farce, Mr. Bass and \lr?. Vernon were welcomed with the warmest muni'aetatlons. Bowery Thkathe.?The bill of evening, drew together a va?t crowd to the Bowery. In " Oilderoy, or, Lhe Riever's Hansom," Mr. Marshall as Gilderoy, sustained the part with admirable effect. Mr. C. Burke hs Andrew Cloutem. kept the house in a continued roar of aughter. Old Bowery was filled to o'erfiowing, from pit ? gallery last evening, and the entertainments passed )ff with much eclat. On this evening will be presented 'La Bayadere, or the Maid of Cashmere," also 'the 1 Naiad Queen,'' and the petite enmedy of " Ole Bull," In which Miss Turnbull will appear. The attractions at this popular theatre have always been duly appreciated, and no doubt we t-hall have a bumper house this evening. Chatham Theatre.?Th# entertainments last evening drew together a vast crowd of spectators, attracted not alone by the excellent bill, but by the high reputation of the di atnnlis pertona. The travestie of " Hamlet," written by J. Toole, F'sq , was produced with admirable effect. Mr. Brougham as llan^et, and Mr. Whiting as Claudius, kept the house in continual laughter during the performance. Mrs. Brougham as Opbeila sustained the part with exoellent effect. The entire perfurmances passed off in a manner highly creditable to the whole company. This evening will be presented the " Trumpeter's Daughter," the travestie of "Hamlet," and the " Irish I.Ion." Go and see. Tamo'i Orr.n t Hoi'je.?In consequence of the opening of the l'ark Theatre, or some other reason, there was not so good an audience as before, to witness the danclcg and exercises of the I.ehmsn family. However, the perr,f,ff .... ?.,ii ...i .11 ik.. a. iwiuMuvn noun wu ?j nsu, auu an IUU |i?inuur prrHKUt were delighted with the sweet grace* of M ile Adelaide and her Muter Mathllde. Charles Wlnther mai|e, on tlie tight rope, a magnificent display of his agility ; and in the pantomime " L' Arbre Magique,'' Christian Lehman the Diiureau of the troupe, excited bursts of laughter, and was received with great applause We must not forget '-La Jota Aragonese," by the four M lies Lehman, and the " Tableaux Vivans," by MM. Wintherand C. Lehman, with M ile Caroline. There was a pieee worthy of the ancient statuary. The performance of this evening consists of the first performance of the well known pantomime, " Mr. Dechalumeaux," danccs by the M'lles Lehman, and the " Living Skeleton.1' in which Christian Lehman is so funny. We hope the attraction will be strong enough to favor the French ballet with a good house. < ah it.

Thk Weather.?The thermometer stood during the day at 80 degree*, and lowered towards evening. The day was agreeable, and several of our citizens made for the different watering places in our Immediate vicinity, amongst whom we noticed some of the principal officers connected with the board of Common Council. We wish them an agreeable trip, go where they may. C*?e ok Infanticide. ? Coroner Walters yesterday held an Inquest at No( 11 Trinoe street, on the body of a i coloured female infant found in the sink attached to the house. From the evidence taken on the inquest, it ap- ' pears that Maria Neal, (colored) was employed as a ser- < vant; yesterday she oomplained of not being well, and i retired to bed earlier than usual; the family not suspecting that her sickness arose from aDy unusual caum. . prepared some warm teas for her, and caused her to soak i her feet in warm water. Yesterday morning a member i of the family went to her room, and enquired how shu felt. Maria said she felt no better. About 11 o'clock in the day, a little son of the lady of the bouse came into the room and asked his ma what she was doing. She I answered him, that she was making gruel for Maria. He remarked, ''why,ma,Maria was on the floor all night, and j I heard a noise like a child or a kitten; Maria told mu that the noise was l'rom a kitten " This excited the suspicion of the lady that there might be something wrong. An examination led to the discovery of a child in the sink. M aria ou being charged with being the mother of the child, at first denied it. but soon after confessed that it was hers, told who the father was. and said that the child was dead, and that she did not know what to do with it except to throw it into the sink. The infant was full grown and had a health; appearance. A pa it mortem i examination showed that the child had been alive since 1 birth; the bones of the right side of the skull were extensively fractured. The jury rendered a verdiot that 1 death was caused bv violence Inflicted at the time of i birth, or soon after, by Maria Neal, the mother. MarU i Neal, tbe uafortunate mother, is a native of Jamaica, i one of the West India Islands, tier parents are reprr- < sented as bving in good circumstances. She left them, I and came to this city about a year ago, with Mr Turn < bull, residing in the Second Avenue, in whose family she 1 has resided until within the last four months. She was 1 arrested and commuted to prison. i The Public Sewkrj.?We were gratified to observe J the spirit with which those excellent and useful vehi- 1 cles for t he removal of filth and nuisance are progressing, 1 in visiting Fulton, James, and Hever^l of our principal ' streets, yesterday. A larger force, would, however, ex- ' petite the matter a good deal, and we would recommend 1 the contractors to employ the hands forthwith. Common Council.?1The Board of Assistant Aldermen hold a special meeting this evening, for the purpose of disposing of the unfinished business they have on hand, prior to their summer recess The ordinance authorizing a reorganization of the medical department of the Alms House, adopted by the Board of Aldermen, will, doubtless, be concurred in this evening, as also the action of , the Board on the subject of giving out the cleaning of nueeiK uy luuunci, .-Miverai Miner mailers ui lniereM, connected with the affairs of tho lost anil present Common Council, are expeoted to come up for discussion, at the clone of which the Hoard will adjourn uutil September. Chinese Junk.?We see an absurb paragraph golog the rounds of some papers, in the shape of an extract purporting to be taken from the Loudon Illustrated News, stating that the Keying, the Chinese Junk, hud arrived in Kngland. To the many thousands who have visited her at her moorings at Castle Garden here, this story is of course absurd, and the many more who will visit her, will nee at oue glance that it is false. ffa trust that she will not leave us yet awhile; tlio noble mandarin, clever artist, and amusing crew that she has on board, not to sprak of the wonders of her construction, all combine to form a most interesting morning's visit. From the eyes in her bows, to the uttermost end ot her huge rudder, she Is one continuous curiosity; in fact, like everything Chinese, she shows the curious Ingenuity of their works, though at the same time, evincing luw much unnecessary labor they take on themselves in doing things which more enlightened nations or rather nations who have had more intercourse with the rest of ihd world,do with half the trouble. 1'i.KAiUHK Kxcrnsiort.?Tho Boutonka pleasure party, numbering seventeen, going to Albany and Troy in the schooner Coquette, irom Philadelphia, came outside, having left on Saturday. They will return again by the same route. The excursion will be truly agreeable. Boiton FiitKMr.x ?A very handsome and superbly fiinehedhat, was presented lust evening by Capt.

Found in thk Watkr.?TheCoroner held an inquest upon the body of an unknown man, about 40 years oi l, who was yesterday found in the Kant River, near slip No. 10. The deceased is supposed to have been employed as a laborer on the pltr? along shore. Verdict? deikth by drowning. Sporting Intelligence^ i Union Count* (L. I.)?Thottino.?Lady Suffolk and Moscow contend this afternoon for a purse of $-250, the former to a wagon, and the latter to a sulky. This affair has creatcd considerable excitement in the sporting circles for the last few days, and a numerous attendance at the track may be anticipated. Moscow is now in excellent condition, and the advantage of vehicle which he will have over Suffolk, leads numbers to believe that his chances of winning are good; at ail events, the betting at this time is more equal than it was previous to the last contest. Previous to the above, there will be a trotting match for $.'>00, between ch. m. Maggy, and b. g. Manhattan, mile heat, best three in five, to skeleton wagons. For further particulars, see advertisiwment in another column. Hk.iiai ta.?A regatta will take place this afternoon from the foot of Montgomery street, E. 11., for seventeen feet working boats, with one pair of sculls. Oreat interest is taken in this affair, as several of our best oar?mi-n will give exhibitions of their skill and dexterity in - feathering the oar." A Fivr. Mile Foot Rack ahaimt Timk.?Pursuant to the announcement contained in the Timet of last week. John ;8teeprock, the celebrated "fast" Indian, camo up to our villago on Thursday to run a race of five inil>s against time, the time being limited to !I0 minuted; and we dimply give expression to the "day do" of a large number of spcctaf,ord when we state that a hvidsonx r exhibition of fleetnedd, or one better sustained throughout. had seldom, if ever, been witnedded.

Judge Edwards adjourned to tha Circuit Court room.yesterday morning,to hear the argu- | moot in this otM The Brazilian Consul Uanaral, tha l Capt. of the bark, and Mr. Purroy, their counsel, wer? in atteodanoe Mr. J. L White and Mr. Jay attended on behalf of the ilavea. There were about a dosed colored , people also present After arranging Home preliminary questions. such as altering tha writ, so that It ahould b? directed to Judg<> Edwards instead of Judge Edmonds, trud a corresponding alteration in the other papers, Mr. Purroy proceeded to read the return, whiah was similar to that made to the writ granted by Judge Daly, with the addition of having put the proceedings before Judge Daly in issue, and submitted that the question waa ad- j jud icated upon by him and that the parties were now | stopped from going behind that decision. Mr. Jay, on the part of the slaves, applied to the Judge for an order to bring them into oourt. Mr. Purroy opposed the application, on the ground that It was unneceasary to briog theiu into oourt, uotil the question of ret judicata was tirst disposed of. and also, that there was an understanding to that effect, between the counsel on both sides, at tbu lost meeting before Judge Edmonds; ha broadly hinted that ha apprehended a rescue. After hearing Mr. Jay, Judge Edwards thought there was no necessity to have them In court until the question ret judicata was decided. Mr. Purroy then proceeded to argue the case at great lengtn, anil insisted there waa no new state of facts or change of relation between the xlaves and their master, since the case had been solemnly deoided by Judge Daly, which could give Judge Edwards any jurisdiction, and cited various authorities In support of his argument ha principally relied on Barry's case, decided by the Court of Errorn, And a. rcHolutinn snturHil nn tha* SanaU - writ ot habeas corpus once disposed of, wher* the parties were the name, and no new state of facta pat In If buo, oould not be re-opened. Mr. Jav replied to Mr. Purroy. He contended first, that the decision of Judge Daly, was r.x parlr,?that thu persons who pretended to represent the slaves before him, had no authority,?that they, the slaves, were not present, and even If they were, they did not understand the language and could not know what was going forward. He alno insisted, that before Judge Daly had given hit decision, he withdrew the writ. >.nd lastly, that under the new Constitution the Judges of the Common Ploas bad no power to issue the writ of habeas corpus. In the Bourse of his argument Mr. Jay read an answer to the return to the writ of habeas corpus, which consisted of the joint affidavit of the two slaves, Da Hooha and D i Costa; they alleged that after they were returned to their master thf y were put in irons, and that he tbreatuncd to flog them.

In re Richird fVaodltrad?Oii the 20th of June last, VVoodhead. who hul theu Intely arrived from Ireland, cutplained of a |iaio iu his back, left his lodgiugs in search of a lispeusary, which in the old count'y is a sort of hospital, where out-dour patienti are prescribed for and get medicine. In the course of nis walk he inets policemau, and asked him o direct him to a hospital; the policeman directed him to the Tombs; he weut there aud applied to Justice Drinker for a lospital ticket, the usual mode in Dubliu of procuring ad minium to the institutions above deacribed. The Justice, after iskiu* some questions, drew up a commitment, and contained him to the penitentiary as a vagrant, laboring uuder a oalhsome disease, where lie has since remained. He was wrought up this morning, aud upou the facts being stated to Judge Edmonds, he discharged him at once. It seems thnt Woodhead was hired a few days before his Coininifneut by .he Rev. Mr. f^gilby, as a servant or workman, aud was to go home on the following Saturday." Sir?The foregoing appeared in your paper of Sunday ast. and was also published in mort, If not all, of the morning paper* 01 .vionuay i cannot say I regret It, inismuch a* it afford* n>e the opportunity of disabusim? the public in re*peot to one of the many imputation* which have been cast upon the Court, and with go little reason. It would appear that Woodhead wag dirtjharged upon hi* own statoment of alleged facts, as sworn to by him in hi* petition, upon which the writ wan granted, but which do nt>t appear upon the record. 1 have no sort :>f objection to any leputation whioh the Judge who discharged him, for aots which may be dictated by humanity or sympathy, but I have some objection for my own reputation, in the correct discharge oi my official duties, well knowing that this alono can be substantially acquired or sustained by a faithful and intelligent administration of the law. whioh is the only safeguard of the publio and the citizen; and for this reason I have felt it due to myself to show that I have not violated my duty as a magistrate. By the law passed January '23, 1833 (see Session Laws of that year), a vagrant is, among other things, designated to be a person who shall have contracted an Infectious or other disease, in the practise of drunkenness or debauchery, and requiring charitable aid to rcitore him to health. If the magistrate be satisfied, by the confession of the offender, or by competent testimony, that the person is a vagrant, within the description aforesaid, he shall make up a record of conviction, which shall be filed In the office of the Clerk of Sessions, and shall commit the offender?if an improper person to be sent to the aim* house?to the penitentiary, for n term not exceeding six months, the confession, record, and commitment, properly oertlfled and annexed, which will show how far the law has been complied with. The idea that Woodhead did not know what he was doin ;, is abscurd, as it is incorrect. The blanks in the papers were all filled up by Col. Snow, one of the clerk* of thia ??nnrt. Th? ronfpHkion whtc.h in nrintnd. \v:< 4 placed before him ; ho was told the term*, au l he signed it; and the character of hid signature shows that he wan well educated. But be this ns it may, it was not a matter that could be enquired into by Judge Edmonds; it being a well-nettletl principle of law, based upon statutory provision", that the office of a writ of habeas corpus, is simply t > inquire into the legality of the commitment. Nor can the justice before whom the prisoner is brought, go buhind the reuord, or Inquire into the merits. In summary uonviotions, whloh are in r?>?traint of the common law, the commitment and record which recites in su!?stanoo the proceedings of the committing magistrate, are reviewed by the Justloe on the return of the writ ; and if there is no error in substance in the proceeding of the former, the prisoner must be remanded; and thorn is no power known to the law by which he can be r?ieased, save only the pardon of the Governor. There is no pretence that there was any error on my part, or defect in the proceedings, and, therefore, the dlsohargM was illegal and arbitrary- There is not a convict in tlm State prison, who could not be discharged, if this statement would be taken, charging that ne was wrongfully convicted by the tribunal before whom he was tried Yet such a discharge would be a libel upon the administration of justice. I am utterly opposed to sending persons to the Penitentiary, whose only offence is povurty, wretchedness or disease, to be herded with vagabonds and thieves. The public autnnrlties have much to answer for in not providing a work bouse and hospital for the sick. But as the law now is I cannot do otherwise than administer it as I find it, as regards Woodhead. If aDy one should be eouvlated, and sent for six months, by which the city would obtain some equivalent for the cost of keeping and curlLg him, a* it is precisely such a case. W.

[From the Washington t'oioo, Aug 3 J We ar? indebted to an ofloer of this corps for the following letter, Justreceired from Vera Crux : ? 'Camp fiiioioi:, nu> Vkb? Cit'z, ) July 13. 1847. ? " My last letter wan dated some two weeks ago at anchor otf Vera Crux and 1 have no doubt you will all be surprised to learn that we are yet encamped so n?ar the 1 wails of this city. This, however, has been unavoidable. , as the stampede, which occurred about the time we landed, look so many horses away, that it hat b?en impossible until now to make up our train, which is to be large , This, however, lias at length been effected; and we shall | get under way iu all probability either to-morrow or noxt { day. It haa been decided that the marines shall be placed In the rear, which, you know, is one of the posts of honor on a march. This the officers consider as a reat compliment?especially as we are nearly all of us recruits. " 1 suppose Com ferry has determined to keep the marines, which were landed atTabasoo, under his command. This, he says, he is compelled to do, or to yield Tabasco again into the hands of the Mexicans. The Mexicans, to the number of 1,600, made an attack upon the place about two weeks since, but were repulsed with considerable loss. Kverybody gives the marines the greatest oredit for their eouduct during the action. A navy officer, who has obtained permission from the deportment to join the army, and is goiug along with us, thinks that it would have been impossible to have held the place if the marines had been taken away. Lieut. Kintzlng was slightly wounded. " Our whole loroe at present Is about 340 men, of whom about 70 are on the lick list. Most of the cases are slight, and can be overoome by a little prudenoe. Our number of offloers is, however, becoming pretty small. We have now but two offleers to four of the companies, and three to the other two, which are flank companies. Capt.

Proceedings of courts martial in the trial of recruit on charges of alleged desertion drum the rendezvous, afford strong ground to believe that there are instances in which the recruiting party have contrived to make out the case of desertion for the sordid purpose of obtaining and dividing among themselves the authorized reward < f The records show that recruit enlisted tlm 24th day of May; that leave was granted him until 1 o'clock; that not returning at the hour, he was seized before six at the house of th? friend who had ncoomp i nled him to the rendezvous in the morning; that he w.\* confined as a deserter by the Sergeant, and that on ttia certificate of the recruiting officer, five of the party received and divided the reward. If the rucruitlng officer performs his duty to the RerTioe, these fraudulent schemes to obtain money at tliti expense of a recruit, not a deserter in fact, would rarely be successful It is the especial duty of the officer to examine thoroughly every case of absence without leave, and in no instance should he give the usual certificate of apprehension until well assured that the recruit was really a deserter according to the Articles of War ati i Army Regulations. If the rule prescribed in paragraph 7(14 bad been observed, the short absence of the man uu the 24th of May referred to above oould not have be> u regarded as a desertion. The Secretary of War directs that the reoruiting officers give strict attention to this subject.
