MILITARY WAR ESTABLISHMENT.
The following Bill, reported by the Military
Committee of the Senate, (by Mr. Benton, its
Chairman,) is now depending in the Senate of the
United States :
A BILL supplemental to an act entitled “An act providing
for the prosecution of the existing war between the United
States and the Republic of Mexico,” and for other pur-
Be it enacted, Ac., That the President of the United
States be, and he hereby is, authorized to appoint, by and
with the advice and consent of the Senate, two major-generals
and four brigadier-generals, in addition to the present military
Sec. 2. And be it farther enacted, That the President of
the United States be, and he hereby is, authorized to call into
the service, under the act approved May thirteen, eighteen
hundred and forty-six, such of the general officers of the
militia as the service, in his opinion, may require, and to
organize into brigades and divisions the forces authorized by
said act, according to his discretion.
Sec. 3. And be it further enacted, That the field and
staff of a separate battalion of volunteers, under the said act,
shall be one lieutenant colonel or major, one adjutant, with
the rank of lieutenant, one sergeant major, one quartermaster
sergeant, and a chief bugler or principal musician, according
Sec. 4. And be it further enacted, That the President of
the United States may limit the privates in any volunteer com-
pany, according to his discretion, at from sixty-four to one
hundred; and that with every volunteer company an addi-
tional second lieutenant may be allowed and accepted.
Sec. 5. And be it further enacted, That when volunteers
or militia arc called into the service of the United States in
such numbers that the officers of the quartermaster, commis-
sary, and medical departments, authorized by law, be not
sufficient to provide for supplying, quartering, transporting,
and furnishing them with the requisite medical attendance, it
shall be lawful for the President to appoint as many additional
officers of said departments as the service may require, not
exceeding one quartermaster and one commissary for each
brigade, and one assistant quartermaster, one assistant com-
missary, one surgeon, and one assistant surgeon, for each
regiment; the said quartermasters and commissaries, assistant
quartermasters and assistant commissaries, to give bonds, with
good and sufficient sureties, for the faithful performance of
their duties ; and they and the said surgeons and assistant
surgeons to perform such duties as the President shall direct :
Provided, That the said officers shall be allowed the same
pay and emoluments as are now allowed to officers of the
same descriptions and grades in those departments respec-
tively ; that they be subject to the rules and articles of war,
and continue in service only so long as their services shall
be required, in connexion with the militia and volunteers.
Sec. 6. And be it further enacted, That promotion, in
the quartermaster’s department, to the rank of major, shall
hereafter be made from the captains of the army ; and that
appointments in the line, and in the general staff, which con-
fer equal rank in the army, shall not be held by the same
officer at the same time ; and when any officer of the staff
who may have been taken from the line shall, in virtue ©f
seniority, be entitled to promotion to a grade in his regiment
equal to the commission he may hold in the staff) the said
officer shall vacate such staff commission.
Sec. 7. And be it further enacted, That the aids-de-camp
of the major-general commanding the army in time of war
may be taken from the line, without regard to rank ; and the
aids-de-camp allowed to other major-generals and brigadier-
generals may be taken from the grade of captain or subaltern;
and that the commanding or highest general in rank may,
while in the field, appoint a military secretary from the subal-
terns of the army, who shall have the pay and emoluments of
a ’major of cavalry for the time being.
" Sec. 8. And be it further enacted, That the allowance
for clothing to each non-commissioned musician and private
of volunteers shall be three dollars and fifty cents per month,
during the time he shall be in the service of the United States ;
or, in lieu thereof, he may, at his option, receive clothing to
that amount from the United States.
DIFFICULTIES OF A MEXICAN CAMPAIGN.
FROM: THE RICHMOND WHIG.
The New Orleans “ Reformer” proffers our Go-
vernment and those in authority some excellent
counsel in regard to the approaching Mexican cam-
paign. After referring to the universal delusion
which has heretofore prevailed in regard to the
bravery and prowess of the Mexicans, it points out
the difficulties to be encountered and the obstacles
to be overcome in the prosecution of a war of con-
quest in the following language :
“ The events which have transpired since Gen. Taylor
reached the frontier have caused men to reflect on this subject
more profoundly than they have hitherto done, and to estimate
in a more rational manner the resources of Mexico and the re-
sistance she is able to present in a conflict with a, foreign
Power. If a stable Government existed in that country, and
its whole strength, moral and physical, could be brought into
requisition, it would require, so admirably is its territory adapt-
ed to defensive operations, unusual and extensive preparations
to’ensure speedy and satisfactory results.
“As she is, however, tom and distracted by internal dissen-
sions, and the sport of every ambitious conqueror, there are
yet active and available materials enough in her bosom to ren-
der the work of subjugation arduous and protracted, and to
develop no small share of the military tact and prowess of the
United States. When one looks carefully at all the resources
of Mexico—its population of many millions—the salubrity of
its climate and the fertility of its soil affording comparatively
without labor subsistence to its people—the bravery and he-
roism of the old Castilian race, of which many remains are
yet to be found in Mexico—and the physical conformation of
the country, its mountain passes, and its narrow defiles, and
its hidden retreats ; when all these things are maturely consid-
ered it will be readily seen, although Santa Anna, and Busta-
mente, and Paredes may by turns ‘ revel in the halls of the
Montezumas,’ an American General—whoever he may be,
and however well supported by a powerful army—attains that
luxury only through blood and toil, and perils besetting him
on every side.
“ Mexico, too, it must be recollected, is to us an unknown
country. Americans who have here and there visited it saw
nothing but what the eye took in as they passed over a few of
the principal highways and through the large towns. The
ambush by the roadside, the natural fortifications within a few
yards of them, made by rocks and precipices, were as a dead
letter to them. And where one of our countrymen has re-
mained for years, the entire dissimilarity of language, opi-
nions, and customs, and the great insecurity of travelling,
have rendered it impracticable for him to obtain any extended
and accurate knowledge of some of the most interesting por-
tions even of Mexico. We know in fact nothing of the coun-
try. Probably it would be difficult, if not impossible, to find
an American who could guide an army entering at Matamoras
by the safest and best route from that point to the capital of
the nation—the route opposing the fewest obstacles to an in-
vading force and the best supplied with water. Relying upon
a Mexican guide, whose treachery and duplicity are prover-
bial, what risks would be encountered, what perils endured,
what sacrifices perhaps made ?
“ The Government of the United States—if we are in fact
to have a war with Mexico—must not overlook all nor any of
these considerations. No American General must be permit-
ted to penetrate the Mexican territory unless he is well provi-
ded and properly secured in every respect; and the point from
whence he shall leave American soil and the direction he is to
go must be determined only after careful, and prolonged, and
most mature consideration. The United States must commit
no blunder in this particular, or defeat, disaster, and disgrace
await our arms.”
A New Mineral Production of the South.—Messrs.
Henry Thompson & Son, of Baltimore, have shown us
sample of pig iron made at the Etowah Works, from the
inexhaustible ore-beds in Cass county, Georgia. The quality
of the metal has been tested by Messrs. Denmead, and pro-
nounced very superior for foundry purposes. The furnace is
on the cold-blast principle, and produces iron at almost the
same cost as the same description of furnaces in Pennsylvania.
It has connected with it a forge, which makes a superior qua-
lity of bloom and bar iron ; and the proprietors have it in
contemplation to erect a rolling mill, driven by the abundant
water power which now drives their forge. The Hon. Mark A.
Cooper, formerly a Representative in Congress from Georgia,
is largely interested in the undertaking, and it promises to yield
a much better return for the capital and labor expended than
many of the operations in gold-mining in that State. It is
gratifying to know that the South, so long blinded to her true
interests, is at length yielding to the conviction that her best
policy is to encourage manufactures.—Balt. American.
Damages.—The owners of the steamer Kent have recov
ered $13,000 damages of the owners of the steamer London
in a case before the Canadian Court, growing out of the colli-
sion between those boats last summer.
New York, May 21, 1846.
Yesterday evening, in pursuance of public notice, a meet-
ing was held in the Park, “ for the purpose of responding to
the action of the General Government in relation to the war
with Mexico.” There is no doubt, I presume, that this meet-
ing was more numerously attended than any deliberative as-
semblage ever convened in this city. The whole business of
the evening was conducted with great order and propriety, but
void of that enthusiasm which probably was anticipated.
It is to be regretted that those who had the management of
this affair should have adopted a partisan resolution, which
must exclude from active co-operation in the measures adopt-
ed a large minority of their fellow-citizens, who could not con-
scientiously say, and therefore would not, that they considered
the war with Mexico “ a just and necessary war.”
The resolution referred to was discussed in the Committee
of Arrangements, and its advocates were advised of its proba-
ble effect, if adopted. Not a Whig that I have heard named
objected to the raising of any number of men that might be
required, to the granting of any supplies the President might
ask, or the levying of taxes to enable the Government to bor-
row money ; but they would not stand pledged to laud the
President’s unconstitutional war.
Between fourteen and twenty Whigs were invited to address
the meeting. Of these, only three or four attended. Accord-
ing to the reports in the papers, one hundred and ten officers
were called to the several stands; of this number not more
than twenty Whigs are named as acting, and it is believed
some are named who did not act, or who acted not knowing
the language used in the resolution that was to be presented.
I have entered into these details that the character of this
meeting and its proceedings might not be misunderstood or
misrepresented. “Render unto Cresarthe things which are
Caesar’s.” Perhaps nearly one-half of the meeting weie
Whigs, but they were only “lookers on.” Generally, they
took no active part in promoting the measures which were
adopted. It was strictly, so far as action was concerned, “a
partisan or Administration meeting. ” Let no man pronounce
it a meeting without reference to party. If he does, it will be
an error, and he will do injustice to the Whig party.
On the 19th the Legislature of Connecticut reassembled,
but they continued in session only one hour. Gov. Toucey
made them a short communication on the subject of the Mex-
ican war. It is very short, (which is a great merit,) but con-
tains all that was necessary to be said. It is such a document
as no man with propriety can gainsay, and is, therefore, cre-
ditable to his Excellency.
The Niagara Chronicle states that the Americans have on
Lake Erie 55 steamers, 20 propellers, 50 brigs, 207 schooners,
while 10 steamers, 12 propellers, 12 square rigged vessels are
now building. Besides these, there is an iron man-of-war
(the Michigan) of 500 tons, and another just launched and
of the same power. The Chronicle strongly insists on the
necessity of the British building, immediately, some vessels
powerful enough to cope with those of the United States.
[Query. Has not the Chronicle rather overrated the extent of
our commercial marine on Lake Erie ?]
Many of the Whig party are exasperated at the resolution
to which I referred in the preceding part of this letter. They
consider it as a trap intended to commit them in favor of the
unconstitutional means by which the President lias involved
the country in war. Under the present excited feeling, they
are disposed to call another meeting, at which they may define
their position. It is possible such a meeting may be called.
If it is, the Whigs will speak openly and boldly.
New York, May 22, 1846.
Yesterday, Ascension day, Trinity Church in this city
was dedicated to the service of Almighty God with all the
solemn ceremonies of the Episcopal Church. This is undoubt-
edly the most magnificent and durable building of the kind in
the United States. The day was beautiful, and at an early
hour the church was crowded to overflowing. At 11 o’clock
Bishop McCoskey, attended by a long retinue of clerical
gentlemen, entered the edifice, each one dressed in a white
surplice and repeating the 24th Psalm alternately, and were
received by the congregation in a standing posture.
In reference to the use of the surplice there is some contra-
riety of opinion among the members of the Episcopal church
On this occasion the invitation to each clergyman expressly
requested that he should appear in a surplice, and thus attired
walk in procession through the streets from the place of meet-
ing to the church. Several of the clergy, v ho look upon the
surplice as a garment only to be worn in the church in the
act of prayer and praise to God, declined on this account to
join in the procession. There were, however, one hundred
and fifty clergymen who did.
Bishop McCoskey read the consecration services, when an
anthem, composed for the occasion by Dr. Hodges, was per-
formed by the choir, accompanied by the splendid and power-
ful organ recently built for the Church. An eloquent and im
pressive sermon was delivered on the occasion by the Bishop
While speaking of this church, it may not be improper to
note that no inconsiderable degree of excitement has recently
been produced by a cold and heartless attempt to desecrate its
burial ground by cutting a street through it, and disinterring
the bones of thousands for no reason of State, no public bene
fit or convenience, and for the sole purpose of satisfying the
apacity of a few speculators. The late Corporation or Com
mon Council of the city passed a law authorizing the proceed
ing, which was defeated by the manly firmness of the then
Mayor, Mr. Havemeyer, who refused to sign the bill. To
the honor of this church it should be stated “ that for a time
beyond which the memory of man runneth not,” no person,
no matter what his religion, was ever refused a grave in its
ground until the passage of the law prohibiting interments
within certain limits of the city. It might with propriety be
termed the Stranger's Burial Ground. This truly Christian
practice gives this church strong claims to protection from
every other denomination when the speculators shall renew
their attack, as they no doubt will, before the new Corporation
We have just terminated an election held in every county
of the State except the city of New York. The question sub
mitted to the people was, shall or shall not licenses be granted
to sell spirituous liquors ? The reply to this interrogatory has
been in a very large majority of the towns, and by large ma-
jorities, no. The law authorizing this procedure by election
does not apply to this city.

The Rev. Asa T. Hopkins, pastor of the First Presbyte-
rian Church of Buffalo, will sail for England on the 1st of
June, as a delegate to the Evangelical Alliance, which will
assemble in London on the 19th of August next. The de-
sign of the proposed convention is to promote intercourse and
mutual good will among Christians throughout the world ; to
exhibit the unity of the Church, by giving prominence to
fundamental articles in which the different Evangelical deno-
minations agree ; and to adopt united measures for the de-
fence and diffusion of a common Christianity. It is expected
that able minds from all parts of Christendom will participate
in the deliberations of the Alliance.

rival of the missionaries in Oregon.

A CALM OBSERVER.
No. I.—Proclamation of Gen. Mejia, referred to in Gen.
Taylor's letter of 2Is£ March, 1846, from near Arroyo
The General-in-ciiiee of the forces advanced upon the
enemy, to the inhabitants of this Department, and to the
troops under his command :
Fellow-citizens : The annexation of the department of
Texas to the United States, contrived and effected by the
crooked policy of that Government, no longer satisfies the
ambitious projects of those degenerate sons of Washington.
In that act of usurpation, the civilized world has already re-
cognised all the characteristics of injustice, of iniquity, and of
the most scandalous violation of national right. Indelible is
the stain that will forever darken the counterfeit virtues of the
North American people ; and posterity will behold with in-
dignation the perfidy of their conduct, the immorality of the
means which they have used to accomplish that most degrad-
ing robbery. The right of conquest has always been a crime
against humanity ; so that nations, jealous of their dignity and
reputation, have endeavored, as far as possible, to hide it under
the glitter of arms and with the illusion of victory. To the
United States was it reserved to put in practice dissimulation,
fraud, the lowest trickeries, in order to possess themselves, in
the midst of peace, of the territory of a friendly nation, hon-
orably confiding in the faith of promises, in the solemnity of
Still the Cabinet of the North stops not in its career of
spoliation. The department of Texas is not the only prize at
which it grasps ; its rapacity covets the left bank of the Rio
Bravo. The army for some time stationed at Corpus Christi
is advancing to seize upon a great part of Tamaulipas ; and its
vanguard has reached Arroyo Colorado—a point fourteen
leagues from this place.
What hope remains, then, to the Republic of Mexico of
treating with an enemy who, at the very time when lulling
us to sleep by the opening of diplomatic relations, moves on
to occupy a territory which cannot be in dispute ? The lirr its
of Texas are certain and recognised ; they have never come
beyond the river Nueces; and yet the American army has
overstepped the line which separates Tamaulipas from that
department. Even if Mexico could forget that the United
States promoted and assisted the rebellion of her former colo-
ny, and that the principle by which an independent people
possesses the right of uniting itself with another is not appli-
cable in a case where the latter has been the protector of the
independence of the former, with a view of afterwards admit-
ting it into its bosom ; and even if it could be received as an
axiom of international law, that the violation of every rule of
justice and morality can become a legitimate title of acquisi-
tion, still the territory of Tamaulipas would not come within
the law of annexation passed by the American Congress, be-
cause this only includes the independent State of Texas, the
country occupied by the dismembered colony, and by no
means affects other departments, in which the Mexican Go-
vernment has exercised without interruption its legitimate
Fellow-citizens : With an enemy who respect not their own
laws, who without shame make light of the principles which
they invoked before the whole world, to give a color of hon-
esty to their ambitious designs, there remains to us no recourse
but that of arms. Fortunately, we are always ready to grasp
them gloriously in the defence of our country. Of little
worth is the blood which runs in our veins, when we think of
sheddingJt to vindicate our honor, to sustain our nationality
and independence. If to the devastating torrent which threat-
ens us it be necessary to oppose a dyke of steel, our swords
will form it, and on their points will the invaders reap the
fruit of their imaginary conquest. If the shores of the Panuces
have been immortalized by the defeat of an enemy respectable
and worthy of Mexican valor, the banks of the Bravo will
be witnesses of the disgrace of the haughty sons of the North,
and its deep waters will serve as a sepulchre for those who
dare to approach them. The flame of patriotism which burns
in our hearts shall receive new fuel from the odious presence
of the conquerors; and the echo of Dolores and Iguala will
resound with harmony in our ears, on beginning the march
to oppose our naked breasts to the rifles of the hunters of the
Inhabitants of the frontier / We are not abandoned to our
own resources ; the Supreme Government watches indefatiga-
bly over our safety and salvation. A strong and well-trained
army is advancing rapidly, in order to take part in the con-
test, and by its powerful aid we will obtain the most complete
victory. In the mean time, before the eagerly expected day
arrives for undertaking the grand campaign for reconquering
all the usurped territory, and when our eagles may extend
their triumphant wings over the banks of the Sabine, we, who
have the honor of opposing the van of the invaders, ought to
serve as an impenetrable barrier. Our obligation is as great
as sacred ; there is no sacrifice which we ought not to make on
the altars of our country. We have to defend interests the
most dear to the hearts of man ; our domestic hearths, our
customs, our language, the august faith which we inherit
from our ancestors. All these inestimable benefits will disap-
pear, if the invaders succeed in securing their conquest. And
what Mexican, worthy of this name, could be content with-
out fighting to the last to see this noble race sink under the
detestable dominion of the stranger ? Not one. The lofty
sentiment of national honor reigns in our hearts ; and from
the most remote confines of the Republic there will hasten to
preserve it unhurt thousands of heroes, animated by the ex
ample of Hidalgo and of Morelos.
Soldiers ! The hour of danger has come : you know your
duty, and you know how to fulfil it with loyalty and patriot
ism. I have the honor of being at your head, and I am per-
suaded of the ardor with which you desire the moment of com-
bat. The knowledge of your superiority renders sure the
most splendid victory. Let the enemy, then, whom you de-
sire to salute on the field of battle advance. We will fight
them, and the crown of victory will be the merited reward of
your valor and discipline. To arms ! Long live the Mexi-
can nation ! Long live independence !
Matamoras, March 18, 1846.
No. II.—Translation of the paper referred to in Gen. Tay-
lor's report from Point Isabel, 25th March, 1846, as the
“ Protest of the Prefect of the Northern District of Ta-
maulipas, against our occupation of the country.”
Prefecture of the North of Tamaulipas.
Although the pending question as to the incorporation of
Texas with the United States be still under the consideration
of the Supreme Government of Mexico, yet the fact that the
army under your Excellency’s command has advanced, pas-
sing over the line which it occupied at Corpus Christi, makes
it my duty, as the first civil authority of the district of the
north of Tamaulipas, to address myself to you, as I have now
the honor to do, through the deputation which will place this
in your hands, as follows :
That the populations dependant on this Prefecture, justly
alarmed at their invasion by an army which, without any
previous declaration of war, and without any explicit annun
ciation of the object proposed, comes to occupy a territory
which has never belonged to the colony seized upon, cannot
see with indifference a proceeding so contrary to that conduct
which civilized nations practice, and to the clearest principles
of the law of nations :
That, directed by honor and patriotism, and well assured
that nothing has been officially intimated by the Cabinet of the
Union to the Mexican Government, in regard to an enlarge-
ment of the limits of Texas as far as the left bank of the Rio
Bravo, the citizens of this district, confident in the notorious
justice of their cause, and in the exercise of the natural
rights of self-defence, protest, through their organ, in the
most solemn form, that neither now, nor at any time, do
they consent, or will ever consent, to separate them-
selves from the Mexican Republic and unite themselves to the
United States of the North; and that they are resolved to
carry to the end this firm determination, resisting to the ut-
most of their strength, until the army which you lead recedes
to its former position ; since, as long as it shall remain within
the territory of Tamaulipas, the inhabitants must, whatever pro-
fessions of peace you may employ, regard you as openly com-
mitting hostilities; and for the melancholy consequences of
these must be answerable, in view of the whole world, they
only who have become the invaders.
I have the honor to say thus to you, in the view already
explained, and to present my respects.

The editor of the St. Louis Republican, who has just re-
turned from a visit to Nauvoo, estimates the number of Mor-
mons who have left that place, on their way to California, at
about 7,000. He says those remaining are pushing their pre-
parations to leave with all possible despatch. Great anxiety
is manifested to dispose of their property at Nauvoo and in the
surrounding country. Many families leave in a condition ill-
fitted to endure the fatigues of so long a journey, and encou-
raged only by their reliance on the promises of their leaders.
Serious Accident.—Henry Boyland, passing directly in
front of one of the guns fired after the meeting held in New
York on Tuesday evening, at the moment of firing, was so
badly burnt in the face by the powder that he will lose the
sight of one of his eyes, if not both.
Volunteers from St. Louis.—On the 12th instant the
Legion and Sixty-fourth Regiment of the State of Missouri
met at the appointed rendezvous, in obedience to the orders of
Brigadier General Milburn. After an explanation from Col.
Davenport, the U. S. officer in command of that Military De-
partment during the absence of Gen. Brook, the officers of the
Legion resolved unanimously to respond to the call of Gov.
Edwards, [requiring 1200 men,] and report their regiment
ready, as soon as the companies could be filled up, to proceed
to Gen. Taylor’s Camp. About two hundred men belonging
to the legion were on the ground. Of the 64-th Regiment
the following were reported ready to volunteer for immediate
service : The Dragoons 49, Artillery 38, Fusileers 46, Jack-
son Guards 32, Yagers 62.—Total 227. The requisition of
Gen. Gaines does not authorize the Dragoons and Artillery to
be received. A large number of men came forward to fill up
the companies belonging to the Legion and 64th Regiment,
and when we were on the ground, at a late hour, the enrol-
ment was going on at a rapid rate. We presume, therefore,
that the number asked of St. Louis (five hundred) will be
ready to-day.—St. Louis Rep.

/ st AliTIOX.—The undersigned, having been informed that
\_y Seth L. Cole has offered for sale, and is endeavoring to
sell, the fractional southeast quarter of section No. 9, in town-
ship 8, north of range 8, east of the fourth principal meridian,
in Illinois, would inform the public that a bill in equity is now
pending, and an injunction against said Cole and others in the
Circuit Court within and for Peoria county, State of Illinois, in
relation to said land.
Since the commencement of the above named suit the Su-
preme Court for the State of Illinois has decided that the un-
dersigned has a perfect title to said land, and against the title
of said Cole. ISAAC UNDERHILL.
Peoria, (Illinois,) March 27, 1846. ap 11—12tcp
TT> EPFY.—In answer to the above “Caution” of Isaac
JL\j Underhill, I have to state that I believe that my title to
the tract mentioned is good and valid, while that under which
Mr. U. pretends to claim was not suspected or set up until af-
ter the death of the alleged grantor, Mr. Bogardus ; and his
widow has testified that she never joined in any such convey-
ance, and believes that no such deed was ever given ; and upon
the trial of the case in the county it was refused by the court to
be allowed to be read as evidence, as will appear by the records
of the court. I have no knowledge of any such decision as that
referred to in the caution.
When in Peoria, in October last, where all the facts, as well
as the characters of the parties concerned are well known, I
sold an undivided halt of my right to said quarter, which em-
braces a portion of that city, and I am now prepared to sell the
other halt, and exhibit my title to any desiring to purchase.
I would not have deemed it worth my while to notice any
thing coming from such a person as Mr. Underhill, had he not
thought proper to give publicity’ to his “ Caution” in such a
manner that it would he read by those who may not be acquaint-
ed with him or with
