In point of size this place is not of much importance, and does not contain more thau a. thousand inhabitants all told. Besides the church erec- ted there, dedicated to the patron saint of the country, and a few religious establish- ments, tho buildings arc of mud and reeds, inhabited by a miserable and filthly popula- tioTi. Hero it was the "Virgin of Gaudahipe'' is said to have made her miraculous appear- ance, and here, once every year, a great fes- tival and celebration is held in honor of her, which is looked upon as one of the most im- portant days in the church. The manner in which the "Virgin" made hev first appear- ance is very remarkable, and the story, asie- lated by ono of the early bishops, seems quite as incomprehensible u> us, w ho are wrlhoxvt tlie pale of the church, ns the myths whicl come down to us from pagan antiquity, Bui since the priesthood appear to put full faith in the modus oyerundi of her advent, tho people, of the country, as a matter of course, e it. The legend runs r.3 In the year 1531, an Indian, named Juan Diego, was pjissbigby this mountain of Tapcyac, on hit. return home from the city, when the Mosl Holy Virgin appeared to liim, and directed him to go back to the city and tell the bishop to come out there and worship her. The bishop refused to admit him into his pres- ence, having no faith in the miracle. Ir passing by the same spot a few daj's after- ward, she appeared to him a second time and told him to return to the bishop and say that, 1, Mary, the Mother of God, have sent you." Again the bishop refused lo admit the Indian to his presence, being still incred- ulous, but required some token of the an- nunciation. The Virgin appeared to the In- dian the third and last time, two days after- ward, and ordered him to ascend the moun- tain and pluck: roses therefrom and present them to the bishop as his credentials. Now, this mountain is a barren rock, without a particle of vegetation upon it. The Indian, however, went as he, was directed, and there found flowers, which he threw into his tilma, a sort of apron worn by the inlinbitants of the country. He returned to the city and was admitted into the Y'rcscncc of the bish- op, but whenhc opened his tilma, instead of the roses which he had gathered and put in- to there appeared an image of tho Holy Virgin, -which is said to be preserved to this day in the church which bears her name. From the name of the town she was called the Virgin of Guadalupe, and has been made the patron saint of the country. This is the history thpy giro of her appearance, and it is as bud ns rank heresy for Catholics to dis- believe it. With them she is all impoitant, and appears to have a powerful influence over all the affairs of life. With the mass of the population she is the only iden- tity in religious reverence, alpha, and omega, the beginning and the end of all their faith and wo i ship. She is appealed to on every occasion, mid. her name is given to nearly half the females in tho country; her image is> hung up iu every house, and even in the butcher-stalls and drinking-shops sho occu- pies a conspicuous place, where her presence is supposed to preserve the meat sweet in tlic one, and to bring customers to the other. On Sunday, the 12lh of December, 18-iV, I rode out to Guadalupc, to witness the cer- emonies in honor of this saint. I mounted my horse1 at an eaily hour, and set out alone, but by the time I had reached tho Garita and turned upon the causeway, 1 found my- self in the midst of a ciowd tending tha same way. It was as pleasant and beautiful a mor- ning as ever broke over that lovely valley, and every tiling reminded mo of spring time or early .summer. The air had that balmy softnc.'a peculiar to tiio season of opening and Lho gentle zephyrs which came from the shining bosom of hike Tescoco, weic loaded with a delightful odor. The tiCHS nnd bushes and wore dressed in their garb of living green, and the merry-hearted song- i-ters were singing their sweetest melodies h honor of the opening day. Such a delight- ful season in winter seemed like rcvei.-'ing the order of nature. The crowd 'u hich came pouring out of the city wa.-> immense, and as checkered in appearance as ever made pil- grimage to thu shrine of u w-int. From the appearance theio were all sorts and condi- tions of peisons, and every class of the prone i-apital was fully represented, ranging from he caballero to the lepero.

I found myself n as dense a throng as c; er. However, re- urn I and putting full faith iu the old hige, ''That where there is a tuU there is a vay." I set about the matter in good cani- sr, and in a short time I found myself at the from I had started, i again nounted my horse, but was uncertain which vay to turn. Just then, I was joined by two of my proposed U) ride tlic base of tlic hill toward the left, .nd. if possible, ascend it on horseback. Wo purred our horses through the crowd, which jpened to let us and turning to the right, ode along the until had reached a ioint nearly opposite to thcph.cc from which vc stai Led.

Thus we labored upward, and at hir-t stood upon the summit, when man and e--tL'd from their toil.

We entered the sacred edifice, and found it thronged with devotees, mostly hall- naked Indians, who had come from the mountains and valleys beyond, on this theii annual pilgrimage to the Mecca of their spir- itual hopOS, and vrlio, tlio devout Moolcm who yearly kneels at tbe tomb of his Proph- et, having finished his mission, is ready to lie down and die. They jostled and pushed each other in their anxiety to approach the altar and touch the garments of the image of the Virgin, and deposit their offering of money in the dish ready to rccehe it. Pa- rents, anxious that their little ones should behold the great saint, lifted them up over the head of tho multitude, and at a given signal the whole assemblage prostrated them- selves on the hard paved floor to receive the blessing of tho good father who ministered there. The poor Indians gazed in mute as- tonishment at all they saw, but to them the riddle was not to be soh ed, they were taught to believe, not to inquire. When they had deposited their offerings, and received a blcs- j. 3 sing, they turned away to make room for others who were continually pressing on. Turning away from this scene, we led our horses down the stone stairway into tbe in- closure below. The crowd was not so ns before, and we now found no difficulty in making our way through.

She got aground and the Britibh attempted to retake her. but wore repulsed by the gallantry of Col. 'Winfield bcott. This was the lirst time he had met the here, as in every subsequent engagement where he was first in command, ho was victorious. A lew days after, was fought tho memor- able battle of Quecnstowii Heights. Scott was the hero of tho day, and covered him- self with glory. The battle lasted many hours, and was fought on tho part of the Americans with fearful odds against them. Tho British army having been rc-inforccd. numbered not less than thirteen hundred hymns free from harm. In the centre of tlie is a laige fountain, surnioimted by tho Goddess of Liberty, which spouts pure water high up in the air, and at iti base crouch four from whose mouths spout up smaller jots.

In pleasant weather hundreds of children assemble in this charming place in the afternoon, and amuse themselves with militia on the opposite shore refused or were unable to cross to their aid, and that succor was hopeless, Scott's heroic band wcro at length 'compelled to surrender. But their gallant deeds upon that occasion car- ried inspiration to every American heart. Tho ilingi-uco of Ilull'a auj.iuinl0r was wiped of the enemy character of tlio American army redeemed Scott was carried a prisoner to Quebec. "While ho was there, an incident occurred which had a most important bearing upon tho future conduct of the war, and is deserv- ing Of particular mention. At tho time Groat Britain denied the right of expatriation. Ill other words, she douiod the right of any of her sxibjccts to part of Scott, and of the legislation conse- quent upon his efforts was, not only to save the lives of the twenty three Irishmen, but to compel England, throughout tho remain- der of the to respect the rights of our naturalized citizens, by virtually abandon- ing her claim to perpetual allegiance. Just after the close of the war. as Gen. Scott was walking along one of the whar- ves of Xew York ho was hailed by his Irish friends for whom he had interfered at Que- bec, They had just been released from the English prisons, and now rushed to em- brace him as their deliverer. At the capture of Fort George, on f ho 27th of May, 1813, Scott led the advanced guard. He landed on the Canada shore of Lake Ontario, formed his command on tho beach, and scaled the banks behind wliich the British forces were drawn up, fifteen hundred strong. Tho action was short and desperate, but ciid6d in the total routo of the enemy. Scott was the first man to enter the fort, and haulod Jown the British Hag with his own liandj. On the 10th and llth of November. 1S13, Scott defeated enemy iu two actions, one at Fort Matilda, the other at Hoop- pole Creek. On tho 19th of March, 1813. when ouly twcnty.scven years old. Scott was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General. A few days after this promotion, Geu. Brown, then chief in command of the Niag- ara frontier.lcft Scott at BuiFalo.to instruct and drill the army, wiiich was then con- centrating at that point. Scott hadeutiro charge of this camp of instruction for about three months. The results of the discipline and spirit which his teachings here infused into the Northern army, were soon to bo developed 011 the fields of Cliip- pcwa and Luiidy's The battle of Chippowa was fought oii the jth of July, 1S14. Scott, with 1900 Americans, met on an open plain and rout- ed with the bayonet 2100 of the veteran troops of very llower of tho army.

Wo rode through those shady avenues aud then passed out at tho south-west au- cd this naturalization laws being founded upon the opposite theory. While Scott was a prisoner at Quebec, the British attempted to enforce their doc- trine of perpetual allegiance in regard to certain Irish prisoners found in tho ranks of tho American army at Tho following is a description of the scene: "Scott being in the cabin of the heard a bustle upon dei'ck and hastened up.

Brown, in his oflicial report of tho battle, says: "Brigadier General Scott is en- titled to'the highesc praise our country can bestow. His brigradc covered itself with Tho battle of Luiidy's Lane (or Ntigank as it is frequently called.) was fought ontiio 20th of July, 1SH, just two weeks :s.ftei- that of Chippcjwa.
