The United States steam ship Edith, Capt.

we .have received our letters and files from the
ciiyj of Mexico to the 13th instant and from Ve.

CjoL Wither's Command, about which our
last advices left some anxiety on the public mind,
arrived in safety at Real del Monte.

rairta and Rea at the time. These escaped

It is our design, in sending these troops
to MelucoTlo sit out the Mexican people,
and try an experiment of obstinacy be
tween" the two races ? If so, 4et us recol
lect .tho just and forcible remark made
here last winter by the Senator from Mis-
ftpUri, (MKr Benton.) in speaking of the
line proposed to b taken by the Senator
from South Carolina that no people on
earth have such obstinate perseverance
as the oldfCnstilian race, and that this
quality is to be found to a great extent
in the present inhabitants of Mexico.
The Senator then reminded us that if we
undertake the process of sitting out the
Mexicans, we should not forget the exam
ple of the Moors fdr, as he remarked, they
sat a thousand years, and the Spaniards
at last sat them out, and took possession
of the whole of Spain. Sir, I am not in
' favor of rating these regulars to the Pres.
, ident in order to enlarge our milit ary forces
in Mexico,', 1 he force, there now is am
tle for eyery legitimate purpose. If the
President wishes to nroloncr 'the exneri-
tnent for another year of occupying the
portion or the country now in our milita
ry possession, he has ample force to do so,
1 am not willing to encourage the Prcsi
ident in anjy scheme of territorial aggran-
. dizement or by any action of mine to ex
cite, if it does not already exist, a disposi
tion to seize and annex the whole of Mex

If we are to have any additional troops

them to do os much more injury injexciting
the people to acts of hostility than if they were
never taken prisoners, and their influence not
confined to such parts of the country only as
they could muster courage; to visit. As an in

why they were not up. jit would be much
safer to keep these men confined here, or send

It is impossible to say when-there yill be a
movement towards any of the cities still in the
possession of the enemy. -I The commander in
chief, confident, perhaps, of a peace resulting
from the proposition of which it is said the Mex
ican Government has made, is not disposed to
disturb the deliberations of the Government at
Queretaro by sending an expedition in that di.
rection, or to create new causes of animosity
by making additional conquests until the result
of the proposition is known.
A bearer of despatches from Washington ar
rived yesterday with Col. Dominguez, and it is
possible that an onward movement may be or
dered. If it is ordered soon, there is little, if
any, probability of resistance being offered to
our progress. There is not any one point that
I can learn sufficient men and military supplies
to resist one thousand of our soldiers. !
I regret to say there is a great deal of sick
ness among the four volunteer regiments from
Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana, which Gen.

THE PEACE! RUMORS,
j The'authentiiiity ol the rumors concern
ing a treaty of peace negociated by Mr.
Trist, is still a very mooted point, amongst
those who profefss to be wTell informed
and of these the" Washington letter-writers
are unquestionably most conspicuous.
The correspondent of the N. Y. Journ
al of Commerce! writing on the 28th ult.
-The peace rumors have been discred
ited ; but there is this much of foundation
for them, viz; ihat commissioners ffom
the Mexican government proposed to
General Scott a j renewal of negotiations,
with a view to an acceptable of the terms
offered by the U. S., but inadmissible con
ditions' ari armistice the withdrawal of
troops from the 'city of Mexico and the
payment of fifteen millions to the Mexi
can government oport the ratifications by
it of the treaty.
..... MThe offer will be found to have been
informal, and will lead to nothing. The
difficulty is that: there is not government
enough in Mexico to make and guaranty
any treaty of peace.
On the other hand, the Commercial Ad
vertiser of Saturday evening remarks:
"We are enabled to say that there are
letters in the city from members of Con
gress, of both parties, which declare in
the most unequivocal terms that the out
line of a treaty, or arrangement, has been
received at Washington, corresponding
generally with the propositions originally
made by Mr. Inst to the Mexican com
missioners, and that it will be acceded to
by the Administration
Independent;" the sensible correspon
dent of the Philadelphia North American.
in his letter of Saturday, discredits the
statement that the projet of a treaty has
been sent on by Mr, Trist, but does not
deny what he has been negotiating with
the Mexican government. This writer
' Mr. Trist stands in the worst possible
order with the president and his party,
for refusing to return home, as he was or
dered to do. Senators occupying promi
nent positions, are not reserved in their

Cruz. On the thirl y-Hrst of December,
General Scott issued an order-asssessing
military contributions on Mexico to the
amount of three millions of dollars.7 'This
was a day before the meeting of the Con
gress at Quaretaro, to whom the treaty
was to be presented. .
4The issuing of such an order by Gen
eral Scott isj deemed by many a strong
reason against the prospect of any nego
tiations, or any successful "overtures of
peace ; but we don t think so. The in
ference is directly the contrary.' Nothing
Would operate more strongly on the fears
of the Mexican Congress, or make them
more likely to agree to a treaty, than the
promulgation, at such a time, or such an
order by Gen. Scott. They would sec at
once the determination of the American
general to carry matters to the farthest
extremity, onless Mexico agreed to the
treaty proposed to her. '
What the terms of this treaty are we
are not sufficiently informed to state. It
is probable, however, that the Rio Grande
may be fixed as the boundary, and Upper
California may be given to the United
States upon payment to the Mexican gov
ernment of the three millions of dollars, af-
