Tlie War And Its Victims Since i the commencement ,of the war with Mexico, we have killed and wounded at least 10,000 of her soldiers, and taken possesion of immense tracts of her teritory.— Nevertheless, there are no indications of peace. It is estimated moreover, by a Washington letter-writer, that our loss in killed and woutided is 3,010; and that there have died of the climate 2,500—making, together, 510 men who have been either wounded or lost to the country in bntde or by sickness. Amongst those who have been i killed and wounded .are some of the noblest spirits of the land—men who were calculated to be ornaments to their country. The writer above referred to, thus sums up our losses: Mew. In operations around Matamoras, killed and jwounded, 500 At Montery, / 500 At Buenai Vista, { ' 800 In incidental skirmishing withinthe line of Taylor's operations 200 In the operations in New Mexico, killed and wounded, 250 At Vera Cruz and neighborhood; 50 At Alvarado iu the attack...
