wisely that his presence here wiould do

Gladly was he welcomned, as General 'Ptty

to meet and conquer thme entemy, taking
with- him. twenty-two hundred men, team
sters included, with two hundred and fifty
teams loaded with amrtmunitions5, provi
sions, &c., which the Mexican~s were no
doubt apprized. of as the teams had ieen
loaded ever since Monday last, awaiting
the dirders' for a march at a mnoment'a

four hundred men to defend it. Major
Monroe, comnmandin~g here, sent a requisi

he could spare, as we heard firing about2
P. M. of the 8th, which continued with
but lintie intriission nutil dark. Coin. C.
sent'ashore 250 men, and on ttIe 9th, 4 or
500 mo~re, which makes this place strong
enough to withstand an attack against 20,-.
Believe me when I say there was the
greatest excitemetnt here all the afternoon
of-the 8th; as we coul4i plainly hear the
annonading from- the field of. bat tIe.

with their flying artilery, Gen Taylor ar
rived with Capt. Duncan and Major Ring
gold's companies, and at it they went un
til about sunset, when the Mexicans had
retreated to the edge of the Chapparel,
and ceased liring.
After which, Gen. Taylor fired ten or
fifteen guns at them, and set to work
throwing up two breast-works. At day
light, the-Mexicans were in the edge of the
Chapparel. A council of war was held
by Gen. Taylor, and it was agreed that
one Brigade should advance up to the
Chapparel in hopes to draw the Mexicans
into a renewal of the fight, but the more
the troops advanced ugion them, the more
they warnt there-the Mexicans having
retreated leaving three pieces of artillery,
any quantity of ammunition-from FOUR
to SIX HUNDRED DEAD upon the
field, and God only knows how many
wounded that they took away. One Mex
ican, who was stationed at one of their
baerries, says every body hit himself at

and horse killed-none of his bones bra
ken, which is wonderful. Our informant
says the field of battle was strewed with
the dead, and they coult hear the groans
of the Mexican wounded all night at
Gen. T's camp. The Mexicans were
commanded by Gen. Majia. There is no
doubt they have retreated across the rivet'.
When the volunteers arrive you may de
pend you will hear of them "revelling- in
the halls of the Montezumus," or peace
and good will, will be whipped;into those
bombastic Mexicans. It is a matter of
surprise that so few were lost on our side.
The mon.otony of this place has been
relieved the Jast two days by the dril
ling of "Uncle Sam, ucl's" "web fet" or
"barnaclebacks" that came here from the
Squadron. Yott would be surprised to see
with what dexterity and precision they go
through their evolutions with th-e muskets,
d no one could resist a Jaugh .to hear
"ome of their sayings. One old salt said
ibis morning, "Damn and blast my eyes !
here is a ship ashore, and poor Jack on huts
beam ends." This speech was addressed
o himself-when looking on the tent that

nensions to hold about fifty-two.
.One-third of the whole number of the
rnen fromn the squadron' are Marines, the

oon as I should see four or five hundred
ailors going into war with muskets on
their shoulders, but you could not restrain
them from going against the Mexicans with
y a knife and fork, if you would only
how them a chance, for they are all "ea

In the decisiv'e hate Gen. Taylor lost

had brotal dtown the train, &c., started
for his ci mp. He was met by an express

him that 8.t000 tresb troops had'arrived in
Maaoras. 2.0010 of which had crossed
over, and 1100 more had crossed the Rio
Girade at Barrita, near the Bocachica, not
moore Itan-8 miles from Point Isabel. Gen.
Taylor returned to Point Isabel tut once,

those otherwise well informed; andy
besides that such ignorance actually c
qualifies one to describe to a Physic
intelligibly his disease, it ought to be ci

cerning the worderful structure of

prove the idea of establishing sorte oig
of intercourse, (ats much as is conisisi
with the interest and claims of other

there should be as many consecutive
citations by the same Class on the si
