uestion is better understood, and further, that it would extensively be manifested, could Federal protection be afforded against the aggressions of the disunionists. The newspapers of that State have perverted the statements made by Gen. Houston from time to time, as it is positively known he has no sympathy with secession. At last accounts he was in quiet seclusion on his farm awaiting events. The designs of Col. Van Dorn and other leaders for the possession of the Northern States of Mexico and lower California depend for their fulfillment on the co-operation of the Mexican revolutionary chiefs. But so far the secession filibusters have not met with the sympathy they anticipated from those sources. The Habeas corpus case of the BaltimorePolice Commissioners. New York, Aug. 15. --Gen.

When the war broke out with Mexico he rallied a sand of Texan warriors on the banks of the Guadalupe, and set out for the seat of war on the Rio Grande. The company arrived four days after the battles of Pala Alto and the Resaca. His company was accepted by General Taylor, and hwas afterwards employed in the daring scouting expedition towards Monterey, in which battle, as well as that of Buena Vista, he won imperishable renown.

It is, therefore, a sheer falsification of history to pretend that Gen. Scott has never known defeat. He was successful in the late war at Fort George, Fort Erie, the descent upon York, and the capture of Fort Matilda; he was badly beaten and made prisoner at Queenstown; totally unsuccessful in managing the Florida war, and again fortunate in Mexico; showing that his military life, like that of many other Generals, has been one of alternate triumphs and reverses. The Mexican victories, which gave him his chief eclat, were due more to Gen. Taylor's triumphant campaign on the Rio Grande, and to Gen. Lee's engineering skill on the Vera Cruz line, than to his own talents. Old Zack broke the spirit of the Mexicans at Palo Alto, Resaca, Monterey, and finally at Buena Vista, where the flower of the Mexican Army, under Santa Anna, was smashed
