' Vcgi' tl w a comlenml ntntcincnt 0( ho taking of Matnmoro, which wo (jtrarl from tlio corrcujioHdcuce of the et Orlram l)i Ita : embrace the earliest opportunity to iVe you the particulars of the fall of fotninoros. Glorious as were the days '0f the 8ih and Dili on the fields of Palo jlio and Jiavina del J'ulmas, their JfjghtncBS is clouded by tho recollection ihat go many bravo spirits have fled; but now the march of tho Star of Freedom, ag westward it takes its course, was un checked, unclouded, amid even the loud huzzas of the citizens of Matamoros. Aye, still more : when the proud Hag of the Mexicans which had so long floated over their forts, was to give place to the Sturs&Stripes,' the hand of the Mexican wa9 as eager to aid in its elevation, a9 it was a few moments bel'or proffered and used in the lauding of our troops upon sheir own soil. On the morning of the 17lh, Gen. Taylor demanded an interview with Gen. Ampudia, which was granted. Ampudia arrived at our Camp, and a big talk was to be had. I question if the vvily Mexican had any doubt in his own mind as to the nature of the pro posed talk; at any rate supposing that he had, the policy pursued by our General in taking .theutmost nonchalance, to point out to him all the preparations he had made, in the shape of mortars and eigliieen-pounders, to back any sugges tions he might make, must have told Ampudia plainly what was to be the re sult of their interview. Ampudia talked of an armistice: Gen. Taylor demanded an unconditional sur render of the town. Ampudia wished the armistice: Gen. Taylor told him that the time for such things had passed; and that it vvas no use now to talk, about it, particularly since he had been put to the trouble of transporting those heavy pieces of artillery. Ampudia still hesi tated; at length he proposed to exclude the public buildings and public property. "No," says the General, "I will have every thing." Finally, Ampudia agreed t return an answer by a certain hour that diy and took his leave casting a woful glance at the heavy mortars as he passed them. The hour at which the answer was to be given arrived, but no answer came. Gen. Taylor immediately ordered pre parations to be made for crossing the ri ver; parties were sent up and down the river, to secure all the boats that could be seen on either side. That night just after dark, the army moved three miles up the river and encamped for the night opposite the crossing. Next morning, everything being ready, the passage of the river was commenced just after sun rise, and the whole army landed on the opposite side without the Gring of a sin gle gun. It was understood that the Mexican army, atier throwing a pari 01 their amunition and cannon into the river, and concealing another portion of the same, had commenced their retreat about dusk on the evening before, by way of the main road towards the interior, in number from four to five thousand men, Arista at their head. After our troops had crossed, Adjutant General Uliss advanced towards the main fort in front of the town, and sounded a peal. The principle Alcalde made his appearance, and a formal de mand was made for the surrender of the town, with the promise that all reli gious and civil rights should be secured to them all private property protected. The Alcalde wished to know if the pub lie buildings and property would be free. The answer was, every thing belonging to the government must be given up. The Alcalde then said Gen. Taylor could take possession as soon as he thought proper, and that he would meet with no resistance. This was done, our army encamping in front ot the town. What oouldbo more happy than this? As our troops approached the town, they were greeted by the loud huzzas of the citizens. The Mexican flag was hauled down, giving place to the Star Snangled Banner, which in a moment gracefully spread its wings and was kis sed by the same breeze that - a moment before wooed ihe flag of the haughty Don. How their Names are Pronounced. The names of Generals Arista, Ampu dia, Mejia and Canales, Colonels Caras co and Carabajal, are pronounced by Spaniards, as nearly as possible, as fol lows: Areese-ta, Am-oo-dia, Ma-tee-a, Co-no-les, Ca-ras-co, Cara-r-hal the vowel a. in each instance, having the sound of that letter in the English word far.

Major, from Tubm-o, bound to Marseille, c.ime to an aut hor eff the South-west Pais on Monday liM. Mie sailed from that port on the 2Hdi ull., having a passage of only four days to the H.ilizc. From Capt. Major, who came up to the city to procure provisions, &c, we learn that great exilement existed in To basco against tho Anierienos. An or der of embargo on American vessels was received from the general government as he was about leaving. The order came by express from the city of Mexico; I I . H I I- aim ani. junior, on rcccivui!! tne earn est intimation of its arrival in the city, succeeded, by the assistance of seveial friends, in reaching his vessel. The Governor having failed to prevent Capt. Major's departure, ordered, it is said, the Mexican steamer Ventura to go out and capture his vessel. The comman der of the steamer, however, knew that the Texidnr was furnished with onk v.vs, and therefore considered it tho bettor part of discretion not to be in too great a hurry firing up. The policy of this course was further suggested to him by Capt. M. heaving to, off the bar, and cutting up his chain-sheets into small lengths fur shot, loading his six-pounder, and intending, as he expresses it, to "smash the Velum's coiTee-mill," if she 1 . ri f , 1 I ventured uut. 1 he Governor placed a- ..... . bout filty soldiers in charge of the iew j Orleans schooner.

The schooner , Capt. Cox, of New Oi leans, was seized and the mas ter detained in the capitol. The Texi dor left several English vessels in port, loading. No American man of war had as yet been seen off the port. X O. Delia. Battles with tiiic Mexicans. Tex Ican Victories-. The following brief outline of the principal battles between ihe Texian and Mexican forces during the war of ludependance, will not be uninteresting: In 18:?5, at the battles of Conception and Hie Grass Fight, large odds, proba bly thre to one, were driven from die field by the Texiaus ; and at San Anto ni t, the same year, ihrec hundred raw Texian milita captured General Cuss, and eleven hundred Mexican soldiers. hi 18S6, at Alamo. ISO held out 13 days agaiiffet Santa Anna and 8000 men, lisihting at last until every Texian fell dead, killing 910 of the enemy; and at Codetta, beat off 1000 men under Lr reu; but next day were trenchcromly deceived into a surremier; 700 of their own spontaneous will, killed or captured 1500 Mexicans, at JSan .lacinlo,nking prisoner the President of Mexico, Gen eral Santa Anna; arid twenty, under Deaf Smith, routed 120 Mexicans the same year. In 1839, one hundred and four bent 1000 Mexicans at Sahiilo, and retreated into Texas with the loss of only four men, III 1842. only 210 of them repulsed - General Woll and 1300 troops at Aroy a General Woll and 1300 troops at Amy a Salado: 201 drove 2500 Mexicans into Alier, fomdit nineteen hours, killed 700 of the enemv. but at last were deceived into a surrender, and horribly butchered ' : . . .... . . or enslaved. In 1843, two hundred unarmed Texi an prisoners at Salado, attacked four hun dred armed Mexican guards, beat and dispersed them. Same year, Commo dore Moore, of Yucatan, silenced ten times his naval force, and .compelled them to lelire. Thf last victory resul ted in a treaty, or alii Jw-e,hct ween Yu catan and Texas, by which the former hound herself to remain passive in any contest which Mexico might thereafter engage in with Texas, and most faith fully have the gallant Yucatecos per formed their contract. A liotD Proposition. A project has been set on foot in Baltimore' among a number of gentlemen, to offer their ser vice" to the President, to go out to Yu catan, on certain conditions, and there raise a body of troops with which to march on the Capital of Mexico, for the purpose of revolutionizing that Govern ment. They do not ask for money, hut for provisions and ammunitions of war, from our Government to aid in carrying out the enterprise, after they arrive in Yucatan, ami raise the proposed troops. The Baltimore Clipper remarks that the plan is a bold and feasible one, and might be successful. Mexico might as well knock under, for tdie is certain of being knocked into a "cocked hat" if she does not. Cia. Commercial. ii 1 1: it c i. it. At the I sl t.
