DESPATCHES FROM GEN. TAYLOR.
"HiADoDAMtki Abmt or Occor-Ation.
Camp on the field of battle, Buena Vista,
' ' ' ' ' Mexico, February 24, 1847,
Sib: I have the honor to tenor't that, havinc
become aseured on the 20th Inst, that the enemy
had assembled in very heavy force at Encarna.
clon, thiny miles in front of Agua Nueva, with
the evident design of attacking my position,' I
broke up my camp at the latter place on the 21st,
and look up a strong line in front of Buena
Vista, seven miles south of Saltillo. A cavalry
force left at Agua Nueva for the purpose of cover
ing the removal of supplies, was driven in du
ring the night, and on the morning of the 22d,
the Mexican army appeared immediately in front
of our position. At 11 o'clock, a. m., a flag
was sent, bearing from Gen. Santa Anna a sum
mons of unconditional surrender. To which I
Immediately returned a negative reply. The
summons end my reply are herewith enclosed.
The action was commenced late in the afternoon,
between the light troops on the left flank, but
was not seriously engaged until the morning of
the 23d, when the enemy made an effort to force
the left flank of our position. An obstinate and
sanguinary conflict was maintained, with short
intervals, throughout the day, the result being
that the enemy was completely repulsed from
our lines. An attack of cavalry upon the rancho
of Buena Vista, and a demonstration upon the
ctty of Saltillo itself, were likewise handsomely
repelled. ' Early in the night, the enemy with,
drew from his camp and fell back upon Agua
Nueva, a distance of twelve miles.
Our own force engaged at all points In this ac
tion fell somewhat ahort of 6,400 men, while
that of the enemy, from the statement of Gener.
al Santa Anna, may be estimated at 20.000.
Our success against such great odds ia a sufficient
encomium on the good conduct of our troops. In
a more detailed official report, I shalljhave the
satisfaction of bringing to the notice of the Gov.
ernment the conspicious gallantry of particular
officers and corps. 1 may be permitted here,
however, to acknowledge my great obligations to
Brig. Gen. Wool, the second in command, to
whom I feel particularly indebted for his valua
ble services on this occasion
Our loss haa been very severe, and will not
Erobably fall short of TOO men. The Mexican
iss has been immense. I shall take the earli
est opportunity of forwarding a correct list of the
casualties of the day.
I am, sir, very respectfully, your ob't serv't,
Mai. General U. S. A. commanding.
The Adjt. Gen. of the Army, Washington, D. C.
Summons of Santa Ann to General Taylor.
You are summoned by twenty.four thousand
men, and cannot, in any human probability,
avoid suffering a rout, and being cut to pieces
with your troops; but, as you deserve considera
tion and particular esteem, I wish to save you
from a catastrophe, and for that purpose give you
this notice, in Older that you may surrender at
discretion, under the assurance that you will be
treated with the consideiation belonging to the
Mexican character, to which end you will be
granted an hour's time to make up your mind, to
commence from the moment my flag of truce ar
rives in your camp.
With this view, I assure you of my particu
God and liberty. Camp at Encantada, Feb.

Saltillo, Feb. 25, 1847. J
Sib: 1 have respectfully to report thai the main
Mexican force ia yet at Agua Nueva. Our troops
bold the positions which they have so well delen
ded, and are prepared to receive the enemy,
should he venture another attack.
An arrangement baa been made with Gen
Santa Anna for an exchange of prisoners, by
which we shall receive all, or nearly all, of those
caDtured from us. at different times, besides the
few taken in the action of the 23d. Our woun
ded, as well aa those of the Mexicans which
have fallen into our hands, have been removed to
this place, and are rendered comfortable.
Our loss in the recent actions, so far as ascer-
tained, amounts to 264 killed, 450 wounded, and
26 missing. One company of the Kentucky
cavalry is not included in this statement, us cas
ualties not being yet reported. I respectfully en
close a list of the commissioned officers killed

The Adjt. Gen. of the Army, Washington, D. C.
Headquarters Abmt or Occupation,
Agua Nueva, March 1, 1847.
Sib: I have the honor to report that the troops
of mv command occupied their original camp at
this place on the 27th of February, the last of
the Mexican army leaving on the morning of that
day in the direction of San Luis. It ia ascertain
ed that the enemy ia in full retreat, and in a very
disorganized condition; the men deserting and
dying of starvation in great numbers. I despatch
command this day aa far as (Encarnacion, td
harrass bis rear and secure whatever military
supplies may be found there.
From the statements of Mexican officers, par
ticularly of the Medical ataff left to succor the
wounded, there seems no doubt that their loss in
the recent action ia moderately estimated at
1,500, and may reach 2,000 men, killed and
wounded, besides 2,000 or 3,000 deserters.
Many officers of rank were lost. 1 enclose a
list of the flames of our own killed and wounded,
made aa complete as practicable at this place.
One regiment of (Kentucky) cavalry ia not in
cluded, its return not being rendered.
The enemy bad fully reckoned upon our total
rout, and had made arrangementa to intercept our
retreat and cut aff the army, stationing for that
purpose corps of cavalry, not only immediately
in our rear, but even below Monterey. I regret
to report that they succeeded near the village
of Marin in destroying train of supplies and
killing a considerable number of the escort and
teamsters. Col. Morgan, 2d Ohio regiment on
his march from Ceralvo to Monrerey, was infes
ted by the Mexican cavalry, with which he had
several encounters, but finally dispersed them
with small loss on bis own part. Copt. Graham A.
Q. M i volunteer service, was mortally wounded
In one of these affairs. I have no doubt that the
defeat of the main army at Buena Viata will aa
cure our line of communication from further in
terruption, but I atill propose in a few day! to
change my headquarters to' Monterey, wiih a
view to make such further arrangements aa may
be necessary in that quarter.
The dispositions made to harrass our rear, vin
dicate the policy and .necessity of defending
a position in front of Saltillo, where a defeat has
thrown the enemy far back into the interior. , No
result so decisive could have been obtained by
holding Monterey, and our communications
would have been constantly in jeopardy,
I am, sir, very respectfully, your ob't serv't,

"NATURE AND EXPERIENCE OUR GUIDE."
The extraordinary and well authenticated cures
wrought by the celebrated Sugar Coated Fills,
or Dr. Smith's Improved Indian Vegetable fills,
bave naturally drawn public attention to them.
Perhaps in the history of Medicine, from the time
ot Hippocrates to the present day, there is no
evidence of a medical compound obtaining equal
celebrity in ao ahort a time. There was never
a medicine recommended by such high authority
as Dr. Smith's Pills. Besides their great curative
properties, (possessing as they do, such aatonish-
me powers to open all the natural drains or toe
body, viz: the Lungs, Kidneys, Skin, and Bow
els,) they are, unlike all other pills, extremely
pleasant, being coated with sugar, and as they do
not gripe, uor produce nausea, or any other un
pleasant consequences, they have become very
popular for Dyspepsia, Head-ache, Costiveness,
Bilious complaints, Foul Stomach, Fevers, Worms,
Want of Appetite, Impurities of the Blood, Ob
structions and Female Complaints generally,

Joitn Bull is a dark mahogany bay, 7 years old
this Spring, 16 hands 3 inches high, and in fine
life and health. This horse was impor'ed into
the United States by the late Capt. James M.
White, of Selma, Missouri, in the year 142, and
has been brought to this place by the undersigned,
because of their settled conviction that he is just
the horse the farmers of the country need. Every
one wishing to possess himself of the most su
perior draft and farming stock, should avail him
self of the opportunity now presented, as it may
be the laM, (the horse being owned by persons
living in the southern part of the State.) This
horse is the full height we have stated, and his
form, weight and general appearance indicate the
greatest strength and service that can be desired.
Wo invite the public and especially all thoso
who wish to improve the size, strength and stamina
of their stock to call and see him before making
other engagements, satisfied as we are, that none
can fail to be pleased.
The pedigree of this horse is now in the pos
session of Col. Ferdinand Kennet of St. Louis,
and will be procured in time to answer all the
purposes of his patrons. The season has now com
menced and will-end the 4th of July next.
