General Taylor had beaten the Mexicans in four great battles. He had carried the war into the very heart of their country, and had killed or captured all their fighting men. The rest were a mere mob — the very scum of the Mexican rabble — the offscouring of the face of the earth. Santa Anna, with a gallant army, attacked General Taylor at Buena Vista on the 22d of February. He was defeated, and retired with his army latterly disorganized. He made a prodigious march of a thousand miles, and with a do, on the 18th April, not two months after.

It is about twelve hundred yards beyond the village of Falls Church, and is reached by a gradual ascent. Upon the summit is Taylor's tavern, a quaint-looking, old fashioned house, and in front an oak grove with little undergrowth of bushes, forming an admirable place for a camping ground.--Here and at Langley, some five miles distant, seem to be the strongholds of the Federals outside of their fortifications.

Rosser, who is now stationed near Annandale, turned his battery into light artillery, and
