[From the Mexico North American, Deo. 7th.] FALSE SYMPATHY FOR THE SAM TATRICIO FRISOSF.RS. The singular charitahle mania that appears to hare ta , ken possession of a portion of the citizens of Mexico, in 'egard to the deserters now undergoing imprisonment in this city, has assumed a character that demands notice The guard ovar there prisoners is importuned daily by persons apparently occupying * rerpectnble position in ooletv. who drive to the in their mrrliiffrs. nnd I carry to theui all aorta of luxuries, while fhelr o*n countryman, prlaonara alao, the stck and wounded c Ulcere and privates, are utterly neglected. The greater portion of these ostentatiously benevolent people are women?few we think can claim the name of ladies, if their deportment has been properly represented to us. These people procure mattresses, floe linen sheet*. lint n shirts, &.R.. and t-k? them to the gusrd and request the offloer on duty to give them to the deserters. It r'fured. according to orders, they olten become insolent In the extreme? arousing the officer with wjn' of courtesy, lack of sympathy for the oppressed ke. We hn v? taken the trouble to inquire Into the condition of the San I'atricio prisoners The regiments to whioh they formerly belonged furnish th> ui the same clothing and rations that are given to the I curst soldiers who belorg to the army. Thev therefnrehave enough toeat and euough to wear,and to look at the fat rascals,one cannot hut think that the Mexicans have other motives for their false sy in patby than inrre generosity or charity Th?s> men have committed the damnable crime of deserting iroiu tlio ranks of their country, and lighting against their fathers and brothers They have boarted that it waa their good aim that stilled the life-blood It) some of tbefcravette hearts of our army. Three despicable traitors and murderers hare asceped death by the leniency of the law, and still live a disgrace to their country and the race Though they have proved themselves to bj unwottby the confidence c f God or man. the Mexicans, for whom they committed the foulest peijury and crime* of blocd, leaving t heir own cnuutryuieu to suffer, sbed crocodile tears over them, and endeavor to assist tlo-ni^o com- 1 " forts and luxuries hut few enjoy in this country ? An officer who was latrly on guard at the prison infoi ins us that he was sutjeeted to the most Insuitmg language from persons who o*me there in carriages with presents to the deserters?which presents he at ot ci< g ive to tl,? rick and wounded Mexican prisoners We cannot understand that It Is the duty of ao officer to receive the abuse of theee impudent apologists for treason and murder. nor would we, If in th? ir situation, submit to it Whenever a man attempt to interfere with the disc ipline of the army, as th> se men do, he should be tie d up : aud flogged, and the Jos? repeat-d with a repetition ol the offence.* Our pbllcy Is so extremely lenient th-twe J are continually subjected to the Impertinent demands ot ' , a certain dais. j THK'JW,) AUMIKS IN A FORKIUN POINT OF VfRW.
