LATEST NEWS FORM THE SOUTH.
Wo bavo later aod interesting ncwa from tfco
South, which wo subjoin:
The Attack on Matamoras—A Desperate
of a Mine, etc., etc.
The telegraph trieflv mentioned a few dava
ago that the flhiioane, at Matamtrip, had got
up a fight amoug thenwelvea, tot a very unusu.
al thiu( for them, however. From the detnila
which baveaincccomo to hasd.lt. ecema to have
been quite a severe cnggemeut. Tlio follow
ing are the particulars;
llrom the DroWDSvills (Texas) Flag, iior. 21,
Geo. Caravajal, aa our readera will remem
ber, appeared in front of Matamoraa at tho
bead of tha State troops, on VVcdncslay, the
15sh inat , and the people of the town at once
raised tbe black flag, with an inscription upon It
that no communication would b held with the
aratilanta. Caravaal then pitched hlacamp at
a farm about five tulles irara Mut imor.t", and
set about perlectlog bis plan of aitick, oLd
drilling and armiofi hlf.-. -.
On Friday, Geo. iisro)a, who wa'u euppoied to
be at Tampioo, suddenly marohtd into Matamo-
raa at toe head of a troop variously estimated
at from one hundred uod fifty to six hundred
oavalry. His presence seemed to infucc confl
dence at once, for the population which was flv-
leg to tbia side of the river, at once set back to
Matnmorie, and tho people in the city begin
lontiying me city in tne most secure manner.
Barricades wero built across tho streets lead
log out of the main ploza, or publio square, and
rorw were nastily tnrown up at many places
three or lour squares from the main nlazi.
Ia the meantime the rroliminarv moasnrea.
ot communicating witn tne lorciyn consuls,
aud of warning tbe foreign residents, wore
duly observed.. In this connection, wo under
stand that at one time Geo. Caravajal declared
that be would not be responsible for the lives
or properties of foreigners remaining iu iho
town; but remonstrances mado from cur au
thorities, who were appealed to in tbe matter,
produced an alteration in this renpect, and for
eigner were required to make signals to sigoi
ty their property, nnd it would be respected.
These necessary details belrtt contummated.
on Wedneaday morning tho attack commenced,
Caravaj! having moved his camp nearer to
town. Ihe attack was ccmnienced with a civ-
airy charge upon the uppor end of the city, in
the neighborhood of the cemetery, the aeoault
ing column being led by Commanders Pena,

details which we bavo been enabled ti gather,
made great headway toward tbe main plan, at
the outset, driving tbe enemy before them up
within three squares ot tbe publio plaza

tor we onset oi tne morning, liowover, there
was a oontinaoos roar of musketry alljthe time,
the two parties having stationed skirmishers
and observers at different points on the roofs of
tbe houses. - -
Our people a;ombled in the greatest exoi la
ment, and in the largest multitudes on tha river
bank, straining their eyes out to catch a sight of
tne nasties oi niusaeiry, ana Deeding taeir ears
boar tbe roar of fire-arms and the shooting of
the different parties. Conjecture ran wild with
the number of tho wainors, with the inten.
Hons of the assailants, sad the determination of
the defenders. Parties took aides at once, and
bets were offered and taken upon the defense
and the assault.
Aa daylight broke upon the scene of conflict
hundreds of our citizens sought tbe tops of
bouses, lined the banks of the river, and raised
themselves to the tops of trees, tooatch a glance
the exoiting tragedy being played to the
snouting sows in our neighboring city.
Gen. Cararaial, in his firstentry into tho city,
bailed some ot our citizens on tbe Texas sido of
Ihe river, at Freeport, and informed them that
he intended to take the town or die in the at
temptthat he had an adequate forco already
aotion, aud that he had fourteen hundred
fresh men in reserve. Aod to tell the truth,
his foroe seemed interminable as it deployed
through the by-paths into full view' ou the river
bank. " 1 . - , ,
The Roios (Caravaial'a party) commenced a
forward movement at an early hour after day-
ugnt, ana in a snort time tne force inside
the city was completely surrounded, being hem
med in at the plaza. Barricades erected for the
defense of the town were taken at the corner
known as Albino Lopez's store, and also in
front of the new theatre. We understand that
a small piece of artillery was captured at tbe
first mentioned barricade
