March  27, 1846


The Mexican papers translate from the N. Y. Sun a pitiable account of the sufferings of Gen. Taylor’s troops at Corpus Christi.  The distress of the officers, for want of fire, truffled turkeys, and other like incentives to arduous service, is depicted in terms to draw tears of anguish from the man of sensibility.  The Mexicans rejoice to find the army demoralized by its sufferings, and promise themselves that it will fall an easy prey.
