FURTHER FROM TAwPuco AND TUE BRA
Through the courtesy of a gentleman
who arrived on Monday evening, from
Tampico, we were placed in possession of
-El Soldado de Ia Patria," dated 27th
February, at St. Louis Potosi. The pa
per opens with a sounding editorial, hea
ded as follows: "Viva la Republica ! .Viva
el Illustre Santa Anna!" The article is
devoted to the praise of Gen. Santa Ann.
and forms the introduction to the official
despatch from him, and to several letters
from officers of his army. We have al
ready given a translation of this:despatch.
It was addressed to Ramon Adame, Go
vernor ofthe State of San Louis Potosi.
:The editor remarks that other letters have
been releved by private citizens of San
Luis, written from Agua Nueva. on the

" ,,two commissioners had arrived there from

lest the army should disband that night on
account of their deprivations.
~The same lette: says that Santa Anna

to speak of iie permctous moral efect up
on volunteer troops of falling back from
points which iwe have gained; there are
powerful military reasons for occupying
this extremity of the. pass rather than. the
other., The scarcity of water and supplies.
fora long distance in front compels. the
enemy either to risk an engagement in the
field or to hold himself aloof. from us;
while if we fall back on Monterey, he
could establish himself strongly at Saltillo,
and be in position to annoy more effective
ly our flanks and our communications.
I have no intelligence from the interior
more recent or authentic then that hereto-.
fore communicated. There is understood
to be no considerable force in our front,
nor is it likely that any serious demonstra
tion will be made, in this direction. The
frequent alarms since the middle of De
cemberseem to have been without substan
tial foundation. I am happy to add that
the population of Saltillo is last returning
to the city. Under the judicious manage
ment of Major Warren, a disereet officer
of Illinois volunteers, who commands in
the town, it ik hoped that the people may
remain quietly in their homes.
I respectfully. enclose copies of state
ments showing the names of the officers
and men recently captured by the enemy,
as reported in my despatch No. 11.

Augua Nueva, Feb. 14, 1847.
Sir-Since my last despatch of Febru
ary 7th, the occupation of this position has
been completed by the arrival of the Brig.
Wool with the remaining corps left in rear.
The troops are now conveniently encam
ped, and can readily take up excellent de
fensive positions when necessary. Every
thing is quiet in land about Saltillo.
I am urging supplies forward as rapidly
as practicable from~the rear, and from the
direction of Partas; for, if joined by a suf
ficient force of the new regiments, I wish
to be able to take advantage of any op
portunity that may offer to create a diver
sion in favor of Major General Scott's op
rations. Of those new regiments,-none
have yet been reported to me, nor doi
know how many I may calculate upon for
service in this quarter.
I can communicate no - very recent in.
telligence from the interior. Up to the
26th of January, the Mexican Congress
had done nothing to supply the wants of
the army, which had received nothing-for
January and..but.half the necessary funds
forDecember. .. Rumors reach our camp;
from time to time-of.the projected advance
of a Mexicai force up.n this position, but

.Interesting Intelligence from Cuba.-It
will be recollected that there was quite a
number of rumors circulating throughout
the political circles of Europe and Amer
ia, relative to the demolition of what is
called the Mexican republic, and the erec
tion of a monarchy on its ruins, the king
to he a Spanish or Freuch priuce. It
was then stated that Paredes was in favor
of a monarchy, and Santa Anna opposed
to one; and it was as much on this account
as ainy other, that Paredes became appa
rently unpopular- After this Paredes the
head of the monarchist party, was ban
ished, and Santa Anna returned to power.
From information that we have recently
obtained from Havana, and from the fact
that the military force stationed at place
is unusually large-so large as to attract
the notice of the Habaueros-and that
there was a large number of French naval
vessels, there, we are inclined to place
some reliance on the rumor that France,
England and Spain. have really some de
sign on Mexico, and contemplate estab
lishing a monarchy there.
We publish the following letter received
from our special correspondent in Havana
which throws additional light on the sub
jt. H AVANA, March 2, 1847.
You requested .me, in. some of your
letters, to communicate what news I
might have relative to Mexico. * * *
It is said, among the rmost respectable
circles in this -city, that the King of France
advised the f ant Don Enrique to ask the
pardon of the Queen Isabella, by the fa
mous protest lie -made when he was
banished from Spain; and that Queen.
Isabella would help himn to conquer Mex
ico, in order to establish -a monarchy there
of which the Infante would- be king Don
Enrique, as a good lion vivant, accepted
the proposal, off'ering to take for his wife
a French Princess, of Louis Philippe's
family. Both parties having agreed, the.
Infante wrote to Queen Isabella, .from
Paris, a very interesting letter, asking for
her pardon, whiich was immediately gran
ted. This letter has been published in ll
the Spanish papers. '. .
After this the infante started for Mad
rid, where he was nominated, on. his arri
vl, as Befe de. Eucuadra, and went to
see the English Ambassador, to whom he
spoke about the affair.. "Th6 Gentleman

would have hazarded the attiou at Buend
Vista, as few would have fought the battle
of Resaca. In the last-battle, as in the
.former, we understand-that the detertin
istion of the General was not seconded by
the'oficers next in command; and that
but for the wise and determined courage
of their chief, there had been two less vic
tories won'by the gallantry of the Ameri
can troops. Had not the battle of Resaca
been fought. Fort Brown had fallen into
the'hands of the enemy, and had Gen.
Taylor retired upun Monterey,'the Mexi
cans would have recovered a portion of the
country, wrested from them, and threaten
ed the valley of the Rio Grande with re
capture. - The results would have been of
incalculable mischief to the country, as
well as in the loss ofthemnrale ofthe troops
as in the relinquishment of the fruits of an
expensive campaign. These have all been
saved, and the immense military prepar
ations of Santa Anna have melted awa;
before, the skill of one American General
and the prowess of his small but devoted
As we have before stated, the fighting
on the 22d of February-an unfortunate
day upon which to attack an American
army-was confined principally to can
nonnading and skirtpiphing with light
troops. The bloody business was done
on the 23d, which was opened by an at
tack from our side under the direction of
Gen. Wool. A portion of the advance
was hshaken by overwhelming nnmbers,
but was supported by Gen. Taylor, who
brought forward the reserve and decided
the day by a resistless charge. What is
here said in a few words recived a day to
consummates and a ricital of the incidents
and manouvres which ended so trium
phatly would demand many columns for
space. An eye witness-one who was
near General Taylor's person all the time
with the exception of those intervals during
which he was carrying his orders over the
field-informs us that not a man, with the
exception above noticed, of the American
lines wavered for an instant whilst facing
the most galling fire, and receiving the
repeated charges of the enemy. which it is
but candor to say, were conducted with
spirit and address.
As- an instance of the desparation with
which both armies fought, Mr. Crittenden,
who acted. as General Taylor's aid
throughout the fight. whei asked whether
the Mexicans had taken three pieces of
ordnance from us. as Santa.Anna reported
replied in the affirmative, and said that
guns were not given up till every man at
them was 'shot down, and every horse
'killed near them; an.1 moreover,' than in
bearing them ol,-the Mexicans suffered a
losos'olme six hundred men. They in
terfered imadly between the retreating
gtius and our-men seeking to regain them.

'it may be hers proper to explain the
circumstances .upon which a report was
founded that Gen. Taylor had sent Santa
Auna na flag of truce during the action. It
ocurred'tha: a body of Mexican infantry,
abdotta thousand strong, had become de
tached from Santa Anna's army, and were
being mowved dowan with terrible slaughter.
Gen. Taylor sent Mr. Crittenden with a
flag to say to them that if they would sur
render he would stop killing them. When
Mr. Crittenden got amongst them, he was
taken by them to Santa Anna with his
eyes blindfolded. This lie remonstrated
against withcut the effect. When he
was brought to Santa Anna he was
asked his mission. He told him he had
no message for him; that he was sent to
ask a detached force to surrender to save
the effusion of blood, and as his errand
was unsuccessful he demanded to be sent
back to his general. It was then that
Santa Anna requested him to tell General
Taylor that if he would surrender he
would be protected and well cared for.
Mr. Crittenden replied. that he had no
commission to 'speak with him (Santa
Anna) upon that or any other matter, but
it wan no use to send any stuch message as
Gen. Taylor nteer burrenderd'. .
