At this point, it is said, Santa Anna will concentrate the whole. of the Mexican forces, and makedespe rate battle. Anna, it is further slated, left ihe ciiy of Mexico on the 29th September, w.th I 1 Siaju cavalry ana ouu miantry, on nis way to San Luis Potosi.

Of course nothing was known of the, determination to terminate the armistice, and the first formation on the subject obtained by the otflcers of the arnty who came passengers in the Palmetto was receivtd in ihis city. From some of these officers, whoLft Monterey on the 11th, we learn that the first Government express, ordering Gen. Taylor to carry on the wr whh renewed energy in consequence ot the relusal ol Alexico to negotiate, was within a few miles of Monterey, and would reach that point the next day. The health of the troops at Manlrrey was much Urtur than it bad been on the Rio Grande. The fortifications in city were garrisoned by ih regular troops.

Gjfii. Tnylor's camp was about three mile this side or Monterey. The last accounts from General Ampudia and his army left them beyond Sfttiillo, on their march toward San Luis Potosi, at which point was rumored that Santa Anna had arrived at the head of thirteen thousand men, and was dailv ex- peeling reinforcements, i The Georgia Regiment was the onlv reinforce- fment which had reached Monterv i our informants left. Orders had been received, it was understood, by the other regiments station- the Rio Grandu io jnove- towards head- Kentucky and Tertnessed tnount-eU regiments hod not yet reached Matamoros. There bad been affrays between the citizens of Monterey and Texas Rangers, which resulted, first, inlhe assassination of a Texan Volunteer, and them, by way of revenge, in the killing of eleven Mexicans by the comrades of tho slain.

Gen. Taylor, to prevent similar occurences, had ordered an efficient guaid lo be distributed through We are gratified to be able to state that the duels which were on lite tapis at Camargo be- tween Col. Balie Peyton and Gen. Marshal, and also between Lapt. Musson, of Louisiana, and jCapt.

Chceves, of the Texas volunteers, have all been amicably arranged, Gen. Ampudia has issued another proclama-j tion since his retreat from Monterey, calling upon i the Mexicans to flock to his standard to repel the invaders of their soil. Ilis excuse, in tho proc lamation, for a defeat at Monterey and the surrender of that city to our troops, is a want of ammunition The utter falsity of this statement is weI known, for any quantity ol ammunition was frond at Monterey after Lhe capitulation. a a HAVING sold my entire interest in the Ureensborough Drug Store to IJrs.

It is a wur of conquest a war of aggrandizement a war of plunder a war ol power ana ana bravado against weakness and imbecility. Il is Also a war of assumptions and usurpations of (he most alarming character.

One territory after another is overrun out Generals become their Governort and the whole are, with a flourish of the pen, declared to be annexed to and the permanent possessions of the United States No act of Congress is sought for authority no constitutional provision is cited lo sustain it, but by the mere will and order of the President or Commander-in-chief of the United States, all these fearful strides are made to an entire revolution in the physical, political, and moral condition of the country Can such things pass over us almost without a comment without any special wonder with no popular movement to indicate the extreme danger to which we are verging? And is this the progressive Democracy of the day Is it for this that our fathers toiled and bled Would the patriots that achieved our freedom and independence, and those still more devoted ones that fought to cement and secure them under the solemn covenants and guaranties of a constitutional compact, have settled down thus supinely and submissively under the overshadowing and crushing power of Executive dictationaod usurpation Would they have looked on in sullen apathy, or withcowartl'y fear, and permitted one after another of the pillars of their fair fabric to be broken down, without one effort to arrest the destruction and avert the desolation Where ore we What are we Official Returns of Pennsylvania.

The Word "CIuidxuxc." This term, sometimes appearing in books, and frequently in newspapers, needs an explanation for the benefit of the unlearned reader; we mean itn learned in Latin, though he may understand every thiner else better man any proiessor oi uatin and Greek." It is a Latin compound of the pronoun quid, what, and the adverb nunc, now. It therefore signifies, literally, what now? and it designates those wise persons whose knowledge con-sists merely ol details, whose progress is a slow march from one detail lo another, and who, at etrery new fact, incapable of'looking beyond internally exclaimin astonishment, what now?

This failing, a sophistical kind of female reasoning and persuasion is resorted to, as a comparison of tfceir exigencies with their rich neighbors, 4lhe absolute and indispensable necessity keeping up with the and lislly, if jfieeessary, right down Caudleisni. So ihrt, at all events, their object will be obtained and tha unfortunate man must endure theconse-quencn, Vmk or trwini. From the stores many of oheso liberal dealers make their way to the man-tua makers, bonnet makers, and seamstresses, where they contract additional debts; some of them not knowing how to cut out and make the first garment in their wardrobe. While ia a store, a little girl came in, with a Jbasfcet df eggs three -dozen and five," says the storekeeper. She appeared to be about II or 12 jear old, was bare-footed, and in oth-r jreejeot roimis of comfortable clothing: had no doubt made many pleasing calculations before she came, that the eggs would buy her two and a half yards of cheap brown cotton to envelope her shivering frame, but when she saw the counter 'loaded wkb finery, and purchasing so liberally, she laid out the whole amount of her eggs in a doll's bead, and ribbands to dress it with poor middle aged woman, soon after, vme in with an order, or rather miller's receipt, for ten flour barrels, which her husband, (a coo- rJ had delivered to mm.

ane nrst aesireu to ook at a piece of cheap plaid cotton, and another of ujb'lcachcd cotton; both of which she evidently -stood in great need of. She also wanted a pound of coffee and a pound of brown sugar, a little smoking tobacco, She unfortunately preferred wailing, however, until others were accommodated. I say, unfortunately, because by the time she commenced dealing, she had entirely changed iter mind, concluding as many other simpletons do, "that one might as well be out of the world is out of, the fashion." Accordingly her first purchase was an empty grass coffee bag, (a bona fide prime old Java,) whispering to roll it nip in brown paper, ller next purchase was ihrea quarters of a yard ofnegured muslin, forcaDS. with splendid ribband, a quantum su li cit. Then a French worked collar, a pair of gum -elastic garters with silver plated must bare forgotten that she had no stockings on, and probably none at borne.) a fine tooth corftb, a cake of perfumed soap, a tooth brush, and the balance in smoking tobacco; this last article being the only thing purchased, as contained in the memoran- hmitffht with hot.

So much for example, thinks I to myself; and- when pride constitutes the predisposition, the infection, ia tendered the more operative, and its consequences the more deleterious.

The Washington correspondent of the New York Journal of Commerce says: There is, from some cause or other, a prevalent opinion here that we shall have peace with Mexico by the first of February, and that there is no necessity for any more expenditure of blood and, treasure.

There is an equally prevalent opinion, that our Goverment will not demand California, nor even the boundary of the Sierra Madre, but be con tent to take the Kio Grande for a boundary, and release Mexico from the obligation of her treaties, and assume to pay ihe indemnities due to our citizen. On tho other hand the New York Express says We have been permitted to read letters from the city of Mexico, of the highest authority. They breathe everything and anything but a pint of peace. 1 he new Administration had declared, one and all, that there was no other alternative left, but an uncompromising war: that every effort must be used to defend themselves. There was but one feeling that animated all classes and that was, to make every sacrifice to defend the territory of Mexico.

The resources of the government had increased beyond the most sanguine expectation. The clergy, and wealthy individuals, had tendered their services and their money, to sustain the government. Every member of the government, with Santa Anna at their head, had pledged themselves, if necessary, to bury themselves in tho ruins of their country, rather than to submit. With the spirit that is manifested in those letters, all idea of peace is hopeless. Mr.

Secretary Walker, when in this city, staled his confident belief, that peace with Mexico would take place in a few weeks we wish the Secretary had the oportunity to read the let ters we have seen. If he could, we are sure that his opinions would undergo a change. A i radition Verified Interkstixo. Lieut Emory, of the U. S.

Topographical Engineers, one ol tne otneers attached to the Staff of Genera Kearney, has furnished a long statement to the Washington Union, graphically describing scenes in the far West, and irivine a detailed account of the march ot the Army from ort Leavenworth to Santa Fe and the taking of that place and New Mexico by Gen. Kearney. Lieut. Emorv sava. that the 20lh August, the chiefs and head men of thei'uebia Indians came into Santa Fe, to give in their adhesion to Gen.

Their inter view was long and interesting. They expressed what was a tradition with them, that the white men would tome from the far East, and release them from 'the bonds and shackles which the Cv pantaraa nave imposed, not in the name, but in a worseiform than slavery. They, and the numerous half-breeds, in whose reins flow their blood, are our fast friends, now and forever.

I hree hundred years of oppression and injustice, have failed to extingujsh in this race the recollect lion that they were once the peaceable and inoffensive masters of the country.
