We had annrehended, from the course pun
sued by the 'Boston Daily Whig, Boston (pbur
aer, and one or two other leading papers in that
S'.ate, which while eschewing Abolitionism,
have been recently more than ordinarily clam
orous on the subject of Slavery, that, in order
to ensure unanimity in the Whig ranks, the lar
ger portion of. the party would be compelled Id
make some new declaration on that subject, to
which recent events have imparted a fresh in
terest, and which must, at no very distant day,
be brought to a direct issue. For one, ws are
prepared to meet lhat issue, come when it may.
Devoted as we are q the Whig party, on broad
national grounds, we shall not the less prompt,
ly resist all interference with a purely Southern
question, be it attempted when oij by whpm it
may. While the resolutions adopted bv the
Massachusetts Convention do not go beyond the
ground assumed in the amendment proposed by
Wilmot, and sustained at the last session of
Congress by neatly every member, of both po
litical parties, from the non-slaveholding States,
we nevertheless deeply regret that it was adopt-
cd at all. It is true that they only declare that
they will oppose the extension of slavery and
its introduction into any new; territory hereafter
to be acquired, so far as they may do so consis
tently with their allegiance to the Constitution,
I and their duties as members of the confederacy.
Ii But why make even such a declaration ?! Do
they expect thereby to. conciliate Abolition sup
port ? Even if they could obtain it, they should
scorn a victory obtained by the aid of a (action
doubly dyed in fanaticism and treason. But
they will not obtain it. The Abolitionists will
have their own ticket in the field in Massachu
setts, as they had in Vermont and in Maine ;
and we are glad of it for who can touch pitch,
and not be defiled ? Towards them there is but
one course to pursue, if the Whig party Ok

Resolved, Thai the whigs of Massachusetts

Correspondence of the New Orleans Picayune.
Cerralva, Sept. 6, 1846.
The two companies of Texas Rangers, under
Captains McCulloch and Gillespie, returned
last evening from a fecouting tour in the direc
tion of Monterey, and brought back m ire full
information of the enemy than has been hereto,
fore received. Capt. Meade, of the Topographs
cal Engineers, accompanied the Rangers, hav
ing been sent out by Gen. Worth, to examine
the roads.
The party started from here on Friday after
noon, without pack mules or. baggage of any
kind, and with only three days provisions.
Before sundown, and at the foot of the moun
tains, a suspicious looking Mexican was caught.
IJe endeavored to escape by running, but on
finding lhat his horse was unable to carry him
off safely he turned at some cattle he saw by
tho roadside and pretended lhat he was a raca
ra, or a Cow-driver, and hunting an astray.
jrhis ruse, however, did not get him off, and a
great deal of information was finally extorted
from him by threats. He stated that Canales
was near Passa Gallos in considerable force,
and that there was a body of regular cavalry un
der Col. Carrasco in the neighborhood. As
Passa Gallos was a place they had been order
ed to examine the party hurried onward. The
road was exceedingly rough, full of loose rocks ;
and extremely hard upon the horses; yet this
did not in the least check the advance.
The small rancho of Passa Gallos, about thir
ty miles from this, was passed without an ac
cident, but an old fellow at one of the jacales
stated that two couriers or express riders, car.
rying news of the advance of the Texans, un
doubtedly had passed a short lime previous, go
ing ahead in hot haste. . A littie farther on, a
bout one o'clock in the morning, the advance
guard of the Rangers came suddenly upon the
pickets of the enemy, and although they gave
them a hard chase the fellows succeeded in get
ting off by taking to the chapporal. In the pur-
suit, however, one of them dropped his lance
a regular cavalry which was picked up and
brought in.
It was now ascertained that the Rangers
were within but a short distance of the camp of
the Mexicans, and the latter had chosen a strong
position in an arroyo or dry gully from which
to defend themselves. They outnumbered the
Texans, too, in the ratio nearly eight to one,
having 500 rancheros at least under Canales,
and from 2 to 300 regular cavalry under Col.
Carrasco ; and under these circumstances there
was no other alternative left than to retire.
The Texans went about two or three miles on
the back track, where on finding a strong posi
tion they encamped for a few hours to rest their
jaded horses. An attack was certainly antici
pated, for the Mexican leaders must have known
the force of the Rangers; yet the morning
hours wore away and the sun rose without an
On first ascertaining the force of the Mexi
cans, from the prisoner who had been taken,
McCulloch sent back a note to Gen. YVoith.
This officer immediately despatched six com
panies of regular artillery and infantry on the
road, to sustain the Rangers in case ihey were
beaten back. They weie met on the return,
three or four leagues from here, and all came i
The route taken. by this scouting parly was
the right hand one to Monterey, passing Marin.
The left hand road, which goes through" Caid
ereyta, is thought to be the worse of the two
over the mountains, and the other will probably
be the, one taken by the army. Whether there
are any more troops on the route than those
encountered near Passa Gallos is not known,
but the appearance of these would indicate that
Arhpudias keeping a bright look out f r the
advance of the American army, and perhaps
with the intention of opposing its progress be
fore it reaches Monterey.
Gen. Smith's brigade came up this morning
from Santa Aguda, so that Gen. Worth now has
something like 1700 men under his command.
The residents there have been expecting an at
tack from their own leaders nightly, and hun
dreds have left the town for the ranchos in the
