Alto about one ochck, P. M., aud saw that the enemy was entering the place. With nil the forces I had I proceeded to form my line of battle on a largo plain ; n woody elevation supporting my right flank, with a quagmire on the U t' t difficult of penetration. Scarcely had wo fired our first gun, when the second commando: -in-chief, (Jen. Don Pedro Arnpudii, arrived; as I had warned him to join me as soon as he had well leiuforced the sevcial points which were necessary to besiege the enemy's troops thht were left rn the foitificaliuus opposite Malam6tos. The forces uuder my command were 3000 mcu and 12 pieces oi artillery ; those of Ihe invaders weie 3000 mcu or a trine less, aud a supeiior force of ait illery, as they numbered 20 pieces of 16 and IS pounders. the buttle commeDtcd with such ardor thai riioxfl, during which Ihe en-my endonmiMl n follow their course towards Matamotos," in order lo suspend the siege of ihcir troops at the fortification, and wiih such object they set fire to shrubbery aud grass so as to form op posite their line a thick smoke by which they succeeding in hiding themselves from our view ; but I, through necessary operations, defeated theiY object on two difFeient occa sions. Gen. Ta)lor maintained his attack more as a defensive than an offensive one, using chiefly the best pari of his forces the artil lery, piotecled by one half of his infantry and all his cavalry; reserving ihe test to fortify the turf, at a distance of about two thousand yards fioti. the biittie field. I was anxious to make a ihnrge on the enemy, because the cannon balls caused great loss ou out files, and 1 ordered Gen. Dim Anastasio Torrejou lo execute it with ihe greater pail of the cavalry, on our left flak, in oider lo give the chatgc at the tfame time with the infantry aud the rest of the cav alry, on ihe right flauk. J was waiting the moment in which Gen. I'crrejon should commence the charge, aud that the enemy should begin lo feel its effect, in order to give the impulse ou the light ; but thf effort was checked by a counter movement of a pot lion of Ihe enemy's force that defend ed a marsh, which pteveulcd the attack. Some of our companies were impatferif on account of the loss we had suffered, and tht-y commenced to get out of order, asking lhat I -h.nld give the command to advance ut ouce, orielfeat. At such a moment, !' o'deied a column of cavalty, under command' of Col.

After this result, eve-y measure necesaay lothe circumstances was taken, aud cur di vision encamped on a mote concentrated around in the same baHle-!;eld. The combat was a long and bloody one, j ttkich may be better explained by the cali u- lafiou of the Commander-in-Chief of Artill eiy, Gen. Don Tomns Rcquena, who nssuies tie lhal the enemy fired over 3000 caution akoul from 2 to 7 o'clock P. M., (at which hour the battle terminated.) autfour artillery enly fired about 650 shot. Our arms wcie uppoltd wiih honor to the iation, as we did not yield an inch of ground. Notwithstanding the. supeiirity of tho ene my's Artillery, they suffered" great loss.

W iih the origin or meaning of this queer ex pression we are wholly unacquainted, but ihe idea which it suggests to our mind, we will illustriuit, by the following jdo'y.
