Nothing indicative of the future movement* of the Amerioan army had been made public Offloial report* are given of the brilliant achievement afcHusmantla, in whiohthe brave Walker was, unfortunately for the Americano, (lain. The Otniui of Libert]/ confirms the statement that Capt Walker's death was occasioned by u spear at Huamantta it also states that the Mexicans were routed, losing some 100 men, while Walker lost but six. The victors retired, and joined Lane, while entering Puebla. after patting the enemv to flight. The last words of the ohlvalrons Walker were," Although your captain has fallen, never surrender, my boys " The Mexicans have decreed a curiously wrought spear to the man who killed Capt Walker It was the intention of G?n. Lane to remain at Puebla until he received further orders. The publishers of the Republican were recently summoned to Appear before Gov Quitman, to prove an alleged outage by the Americans in the capital. The York Regiment have elected Major fiumham Colonel, vice Baxter, deceased, and Captain Dykeman Major Captain Loeser and Lieuts. Friok and Coulter, of Pennsylvania. were presented with swords by U>e regiment, at the capitol. The ingress of provisions into the city of Mexico does not appear to be impeded by the guerillas. Oen Patterson left Vera Crux on the 1st Inst . and a movement of troops immediately lollowed, the Georgia volunteers first, and Gen. Cushing next. Gen. Tatterson and staff had advanced as far as Santa Kr and Han Juan. They would not stop there, but proceeded immediately. An order from Gen. Patterson has been published, In which he declares his intention to enforoe strict military disoipiine?holding every officer under his command accountable for any exoess or breach of the rules of war. A letter in the Picayune remarks that Gen. Patterson will go from Vera Crux to Puebla, and thence to Mexico, in less time than any other commander bus yet accomplished the journey. There was a rumor afloat at Ve?a Cm* that the city of Maxatian had been taken by the Pacific squadron. Gen Quitman has returned to join Gen. Taylor.

Santa Anna, in which the latter la informed of his dismissal from the office of rommander in chirf of the Mexican army His successor in Gen iUncon. who ha* ordered Santa Anna to (lueretaro. where a court martial will be assembled for the purpose of investigating the conduct of the redoubtable "Napoleon of the South'' in the disastrous battle at the oapital, wherein he is said to have personally commanded the main sections of the defeated Mexican forces Santa Anna makes a 'great hue and cry'1 in consequence of his dismissal from the military command of theoountry, and avers that he is entitled te that honor, from the fact that he is the ohlef magistrate of the Mexican Republic He threatens to redress his grievances upon the Tetepulcat government, and peremptorily refuses to obey the order for his proscription. However, having been deserted by all liU troops with the exception of two hundred, he has, for the present, quietly retired to Tehuacan de ins Granadas. A late letter from a foreign house confirms the statement that Santa Anna has been succeeded as military commandant. The writer' thinks that there will be a quorum of the Mexican Congress assembled at least ay early an November, and that the Mnderndu party will be in the asoenilenoy. He also ha* little doubt but that peace will be estabiluhed. provided our government modifies some of It* propositions Santa Anna *M deserted by Heye*' to quiet the fear* of his men, that he would deliver them to the American*.

V'e had a vary hard time iu reaching this city, but fortuuately we arrived in time to assist Col Chi'ds.

Tlghman's company of the Baltimore Light Artlllley were reviewed in our I'lsza The martial appearance of the nien, theli vword blades Hashing ia the sunbeams, the highly polished bras* pieces of ordnance. all combined to present a spectacle of the most imposing nature. A day or two ago, one of the soldier* of the Massachusetts regiment was shot through the head, by on? of the guards, whilst eudeavorlng to make his escape from the guard house, in *hich he wa? confined for soma misdemeanor. [Krom the Vera Cruz (ienius of Liberty, Oct. '25 | The first number of the North Jtmrrimn, of the i!!Hh of September, published in the city of Mexico, in speaking to the Mexicans, says:?" We will establish colleges on the ruins of your barracks, In which your children shall be educated." The Monitor says, we should be happy to see this idea realized but a* It takes some considerable time to effect this, we would, in the meantime, wish that the Americans would not oonvert the few c< Ileges that we possess into military bariaoks. The Sta'e ot San Louis has recognised without a dissenting voice, the general government established by a decree of the l*ith of September This State is remarkable for the great efforts which it has iaadn in the defence of the country.

We do not believe one part'cle ef it We notice in the.Irro Irit that Juan Soto, commandant general of the State of Vera < ruz.has Issued orders from Orizaba, commanding the guerilla chief, and robbers operating in the vicinity of Vera Cruz, not. to impede, *>y further, the ingresu of provisions Into this city. Why does not our government send a body of umii to Orizaba and Cordoba th-?e haunt* of notorious chursctern, and run them off? A small American force stationed in these cities would, by scouring the intermediate country, be of incalculable bent fit in dispersing these prowling marauders, who are every day killing off one or two of our men. We trust our government will look to it. The Monitor says, that the moment for Mexico's making an advantageous treaty with the United States, h*s passed.
