' Theltews frena IHexleia. j We last week received intelligence, after our paper had gone ' to press, that Gen.

On the 1st inst., only eighteen days since, as we learn.by jthe Ledger of Monday last, Gen. Scott Was Still at Puebla, though it was generally belief ed that he would move in about a week for {the capital. His reinforcement's, includingthjose under Gen. Pierce, would reach, him about that time. -A battle is. expected, of coufse, for the Mexicans seem, determined to' complete the measure of their folly and bring additional disgrace upointhemsclves.

rrum raouc .laager. From WsMhiBiBio ii. iae Washington, Aug. lltl, 1847. We are still without further ntf rs, either from Gen. Scott or Mr. Trist, consequently without the means of positively knowing how far either the war or the negotiations for peace, and the kindly offered mediation of Mr. Bankhead, the British minister in Mexico, may have progressed. 1 he settled opinion now seems to be, thai General Scott, with the eleven or twelve thousand men under his command, is now in Mexico, unless it shall appear that negotiations ot peace shall have been previously eitared into, and been successful. No epp reheasior f whatever was felt for his safety, 10 matter what force the Mexicans under Santa Anna or any other General may have h ought into the field again.t him.
