BT TELEGRAPH TO THE DEMOCRAT.
Arrival of (he Nicaragua Steamer
New York Dates to October 6th.
Important from Nicaragua—'Two
San Francisco, Oct. 30, 6 p. m.
The Nicaragua steamer Orizaba, E. L. Tink
clpaugh commander, left New York August Gth
at 6 P. M. for Sau Juan, via Rio de Janeiro,
Straits of Magellan, Talcahuana, Valparaiso and
San Juan del Sud. Oct. 19th, nt one o’clock,
left San Juan with 450 passengers and 50 pack
ages of express freight from New York per
steamer Tennessee. President Walker’s army
in good health and spirits and is securing large
amounts of men and arms by every steamer.
The Tennessee brought 400 stand of Minnie
rifles, six shell guns, 100 boxes of ammunition,
and 250 men.
The Teuuessce was dispatched immediately on
her arrival at San Juan Del Norte to New Or
leans for GOO men for Walker, which would
swell his army to near 3000 Americans. It iB
the opinion of all Americans on the Isthmus
that Walker’s last great victory would end the
warju Nicaragua. October 15th, the Orizaba
exchanged signals with steamship Sierra Ne
vada bound to Sau Juan. Same day, spoke
sU>amer Golden Age and received from her
Sheriff Willson, who had in charge a man named
Perry Train, charged with shooting a Deputy
Sheriff at Sonora.
Attack at Message—Routing the Allied for
res—Two Glorious Victories In two days.
The allied forces having advanced from Man
agua, Gen. Walker ordered the Garrison at that
place, amounting to 350 men, to fall back im
mediately in Granada, in order to allow the en
emy to occupy the place. This they did and it
was the unanimous wish of every American in
Granada, that their apparent success would in
spire them with sufficient courage to attack
Granada. Such an attack could be followed
ouly by the result, or a disastrous defeat. The
citizens, tliat is the persons not belonging to the
army, but engaged in trade and attending to
the civil business of the State, formed them
selves into a company to assist in the defense of
the city, and participated in the glory of a vic
tory. As the allied forces would not advance,
Walker having been re-iuforced with men and
two mounted Howitzers, advanced to Massaga
to give them battle. The Americans entered
Massaga by the way known as the middle road.
They had scarcely appropriated to themselves a
place to spend the night, when the enemy began
to shoot in the direction in which our soldiers
were encamped. Random shooting was kept up
for about two hours, but there was not any
Americans killed, although four were wounded,
one only of whom is dangerously so.
About daylight in the morning of the 12th,
the battle began. The American forces were
stationed on an eminence. The enemy were in
large numbers at a distance of 500 yards. They
tired upon us with a large gun and it seemed
that it was too dark to determine their motions
accurately, but they were supposed to be ad
vancing under the cover of its lire. A bomb
from one of our howitzers fell with nice pre
cision in their midst. When the smoke cleared
away there was not one of them in sight. The
howitzers continued to throw shots until they
j got in sight of the church on the upper plaza,
j The first rifles were now in sight of the church.
I A shell was thrown in the plaza, and the word
given to “charge.” With three loud cheers and
the wildest enthusiasm, the rifles ran down the
slope, followed steadily by the remainder of the
forces. The enemy unable to resist such a vig
orous attack, fled in every direction. Company
C, commanded by Capt. Dolan, had the good
fortune to be the first in. Two of the General’s
aids, Mahon and Gist, accompanied them. The
! church and the houses surrounding were en
1 tend in a minute, and when Gist returned and
' said “General, the plaza is taken,” a loud shout
of triumph rent the air.
A well organized company of sappers and
miners were set to work to clear away the
houses towards the large plaza to allow the
passage of our guns. Almost every house was
full of the enemy. They were driven steadily
back from one to the other until they were at
length all in the large plaza. The howitzers
threw shell into the houses and the soldiers
rushed in and took possession. They thus fought
all day. The taking of this plaza decided the
fate of Massaga. We had now the advantage
of a good position, and a vigorous assault of a
few minutes would have placed the whole city
in our bauds.
The soldiers requested permission to charge
directly on the large Church in the centre of
the h»rge Plaza, but Gen. Walker would not
permit them to run the risk of losing their lives.
About midnight Gen. Walker received intelli
gence that a large body of the enemy were mo
ving out of Massaga towards Grenada.' At 3
o'clock on the morning of the 13th, the Ameri
can soldiers started in pursuit. The enemy was
not overtaken until they entered Granada.—
Gen. Velosso, a San Salvadorian, who is com
mander in Chief of the allies, heard of Gen.
Walker’s approach. He dispatched by a differ
ent road about 600 men to attack Granada. lie
must have been under the impression that it had
been left wholly unprotected, and that it would
fall easily into his hands. They arrived about
one o’clock on the afternoon of the 12th and
entered the city by two parts. They attempted
to get into the Plaza but were repulsed with
considerable loss. They then got into houses
and began to cut their way into the centre of
the city. About 4 o’clock in the afternoon the
enemy rang bells and gave other demonstra
tions of having been re-in Night came>
WHOLE NO. 161.
the Americans were on the edge of the large
Plaza, the tiring gradually lessened and about
10 o'clock it almost entirely ceased. At this
time in addition to our two killed, we had 15
men 'disabled by wounds. The enemy had to
our knowledge 100 men killed. There must
have been many killed by our shells in the large
Church and about it, of the number of whom we
could know nothing. There were only about 150
Americans in Granada, and these under Brig
Gen. Fry held the city and fought against this
great odds for twenty-one hours.
The number of the enemy killed in Granada
is truly astonishing. In many of the houses
they lay piled up in dozens, and ore laying on
the streets, on the door steps and in the out hou
ses. They were killed in large numbes in the
bushes. Bango loads were killed while they
were endeavoring to escape by the lake, and in
telligence is every hour arriving of where tens
and twenties of bodies have been discovered in
the yards. The 'guard-house is already nearly
full of prisoners, and others who have been en
deavoring to escape, are being, while we write,
continually brought in. There were not more
than 10 Americans killed altogether. Seven of
those were killed by runuing from their posi
tions too soon after they heard of the arrival of
the troops from Massaga. There arc probably
15 or 20 wounded. Among the wounded wo
regret to announce John Tabor, Proprietor of
“El Nicaragucuse' ’ whose leg had been broken
above the knee by a musket ball, and Maj. A.
Dillis. We have not had time to collect a list
of all the killed and wounded.
The victories of Massaga and Granada have
put a period to the war in Nicaragua. Those
who attacked Granada were not natives of this
country. They boasted during the night that
they were San Salvadorians and Guatemalians,
and that being such, we might as well lay down
our arms at once as they were unconquerable.
We blush to add white men among them, whose
voice indicated that the United States of North
America had been disgraced by giving them
nativity. The march to Massaga, spending the
night without sleep, fighting all day until morn
ing, marching back and gaining such a splendid
victory at Granada, is probably the greatest
test of American endurance and bravery that
To-days steamer brought dates from New
York to Oct. 6. It is reported at Washiugton,
that the administration will shortly make a de
mand upon New Granada, for full and ample
satisfaction for .the outrages committed upon
Americans at Panama during the riot, and that
our naval officers have been enjoined to exercise
greater vigilance for the protection of our citi
zens in that quarter. A construction and a
freight traiu on the Michigan Southern Rail
Road, came in collision on the 27th of Sept.,
near the New Albany and Salem Grossing.—
Eight laborers, and a passenger from New York,
name unknown, were killed, and 28 laborers
were wounded by the disaster.
Several alarming riots have occured in Bal
timore, growing out of the excited state of the
public mind on political matters. The most se
rious disturbance was caused by a report that a
gang of New York rowdies had been imported
by the Democrats to participate in the election
of October 1st. The head quarters of the Em
pire Club was a special object of hostility. It
appears however, that the assailing parties were
repulsed; one man w r as shot in the knee and
several others were wounded.
