Thin grtat slaughter wis ascribed to tho fact, that erory man of tho garrison had about eight gum lued by Ins tide. About Ihc tarno time, ' Col.

It is worthy or rcinmk that the flag nf Santa Anna's army at Bexar, was o blood-red one, in place oftho old ennstitti onal tri-colorcd flag. Immediately after the capture ol the "lace, Gen. Santa Annn sent .Mrs Dickinson ond Cul Trail's scrvnnl to Gon.

Gon. Houston' a reply was, "True, tir, you havo succeeded in kill ing some of our bravo men, but tlys Tcxinns arc not yet whipped." Tho otTect of tho fall of Bexar throughout Texas:, was electric. Every man who could u so a rifile, and was iu r condition to take the field, marched forthwith to tho tceno of war. It was believod that not lei-s than 4000 riflemen wero on their way to tho army when tho Camau cho soiled, lo wreak the vcngenceoii tho Mexicans, and determined to grant no quarter. General Houston had burnt Gonzales, and fallen back on tho Colorado with about 1000 men. Col.

Florida, Despatches from Mnjor Gen.TScott, head quarters in Florida, dated Fort Drnne, March 'JO, hnvo been received nt tho Adjutant General' uflicc, of which the following is an extract : "For tho Information of the Secretary of War, and General in Chief, I addressed you a hasty nolo on tho Hth. Nothing material has since occur red. Tin wing is waiting to give time lo Bnga -drCr Gen. Eustis and Col. Lindsay to gain their respective petitions, Polaklekaha tnd Chichuckaty, fur thu arrival of the. wagons sent hence to Gury s Fcrrv for sulsistancc, tho laat of which may bo ex peeled by the 24th, with (it is hoped) some addi tional teams from Savannah, and for the troops from New Orleans: to recruit their strength. All these objects, I havo reason to hope will be accom plished by the 20th, or 27th instant, although I havo not had a line from Col. Lindsay, later than his letter dated at Mobile tho 13th ult. In tho mean lime, it is confidently believed that tho great body of the enemy remains in the swamp or cover oftlio Wythlacoochee, about the junction of itn three branches, Bay twenty five miles from this place. I send a topographical sketch of that vi cinity, made by my aid, Lieutenant Johnson, from information received here, and principally from Cul Gadsden, tho Quartermaster General of Florida, whom I have taken into the service of the united States and mv staff, with that rank. His minute knowledge of tho country and tho hostile Indians, together with his general military intelligence, ren der him a valuable acquisition. I also expect to derivo much valuable assistance from Col. I itzpit rick, tho President of the Territorial Legislative Council, particularly if the war should bo carried into the lower part of the peninsula, with which he is, perhaps, better acquainted than any other indi vidua in tho Territory. He is with mo, and is woll disposed to render himself generally useful. "You will receive with thi copies of several or dcrc No. 13 was supposed to be necessary in or der lo bo provided with the bcl kind of moans to ferret out cf the swamp?, and other hiding places, t-mall parties of the enemy, which may bo expected lo remain out after tho great body of tho nation hall bo subdued. Gen. Woodward and Majors Walaon and rloutney, mentioned id that order are strongly recommended to ma as suitable per sons lo direct the detachment of 000 Creek war riors. I trust that thit step on my part may meet the approbation of the War Department. It eein ed lo me to be dictated by a wise discretion, and it will probably, by abridging time, save many val uable lives from the effects uf thv summer climate oftho lower countrv. "The order limiting tho ration of bread or flour i the direct result of the want of sufficient meant, of transportation, and we shall probably be obliged tn move hence on the 24thor2Dih instant, with less thin eighteen days subeistinco for this wing, wuicn win consul oi auoui i iuu ligntinz men. No murmur has been uttered in consequence cf that reduction in the ritionr. All aro duposed to make any sacrifice which iho good of tho renito shall demand. .Vuf. Int. FROM FLORIDA. Nevr Voluiu, March 25, I have only a moment's time to inform you of t until engagement which took place between a por tion of our regiment and a pirty of the Indians, jciterdiy. Tho order for tho troop to rn the jr.rr St. Jehu hid beta jnca early in the tnor ning. nnd Iwu comp-iniei. commindid by Ciptain Athby aud Tripp, croed i the morning, tnd look pott on the ldc oppotlto'to that which wo'Utely occupied. A hort time after they wrte a lackrd by a party cf Indians.catefully conrriled in thnbuihe. ind hammocks around. At the first firing, iho Irish volunteer under Capt. Henry Hibler's company, tmmediitclv cros sed, and Cnl Hilsbinc with his Staff, and ipvrril other followed Immediately after. When wr n led tho firing wis very grrcrol, and Ihe fighting was at greit disadvantage on the fido of our troop; they were ill more exposed, and it wa only when the Indians forgot their customary caution, that our troop mere enabled to fire with any accu racy. The companies ol Ashhr ond l'tibli were tho on ly companies fairly engaged with '.ho Indian!. Upon the approach of the other two companies Ihn Indians commenced retreating, Tho fight was coti tinned for some tunc at a distance. The compa nies of CsplaiiM Allen, Denny and Parker, and two U. S. companies, under the command or Capt. Por ter and Lt. Irwin, were alo missed oxer, and two companies of tho mountod iiifnntrv. Ily there tho roads were cfiecliially scoured, and our troop, tho' obliged to sleep on their nrins, yot passed a quiet night. There wero three men killed in tho engage ment, attached (o Capt. Ashby's company, all pri vates, and about tenor twelve wounded of Fribb's, nil privntcs. Sergt. Grose, of Fribb's enmpmy, received n slight wound. Our troop?, thoe engaged, ns well as tho olh crs, behaved with the greiitcst bravery ; although lor sorno time exposed tu a galling fire, not an inrh of ground wns j ielded. No satisfactory account of tho killed on the pnrt of the Indium has been re ceived it in supposed that nt lenst fix or eight havo been killed tho wounded they of rnurse car ried ofi", if any. Our troops nrn now crossing the St. Johns, and I suppose ill thu eotireo of this day, tho whole force will han; embarked. I have only taken a mo ment to inform you nf thi our dobut, in something like a general engagement." Wo learn from n letter, dated Foil Drane, 23d ult., written by an olllcor, thai that wing of tho nr my wns expected tu crocs tlm Withlacoochoo on the 28th ult.; at i'io time of writing, it consisted ol regular under Cols.

Cooper, n company of U, S. dngooii", under dipt. Whartob and tho Florida mounted rangers, tinder Mnjnr M'Lomoro, wero expected, which would ninkn the force n.nount to over 2000 men. General Eustis's command, nnd Col, Lind say, with t.lUU men, will ho ready to co operate, to reduce thu loo. Had not Gen.
