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

Capt. 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

The schooner , Capt. Cox, of
New Oi leans, was seized and the mas

dor left several English vessels in port,
loading. No American man of war had
as yet been seen off the port.

Battles with tiiic Mexicans. Tex

outline of the principal battles between
ihe Texian and Mexican forces during
the war of ludependance, will not be
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

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

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.
