Extract from a letter received by a gentleman
of this village, from his son, a member of the
"96 Boys," dated
JALi'AA, April 25th, 1847.
*" We arrived at this place on the 23d, and
passine throigh the city, we encamped iu a
beautif ul pasture, belonging to the God Father
of Santa Anna. Our water is most excellent,
which we obtain froti a sniall canal. on which
is a very large factory. We left Vera Cruz
oil the 18th, and after hard marches of 15 to
18 miles, arrived safely at this place. After
trudging through sand,ankie deep, for the first
9 miles, we struck the Macadamized road, and
this is one of the most costly and best roads I
ever met with, the whole way, to this place, hd
as well paved as any street in Charleston.
The bridges are really magnificent, the strong
est, and withal the neatest imaginable. On the
second day, we encamped on a large creek,
and about one mile from the camp was Santa
Anna's hacienda; I was unable to go to it.
the men obtained a great many cocoa-nuts.
A beef party, was here shot at by rancheros, I
nan killed and 2 or 3 wounded, 2 of the Penn
ylvanians, who left the camp, were fonund
with their throats cut. We met with nothing
f interest, until we' arrived at-the Nationaf
Bridge, which ii a most stupendous work, it is
a so id rock., with four beautiful arches, about
100 yards long, over a large swift stream, the
banks are very steep, and below the bridge it
resembles Tallulah falls. It was here that San
ta Anna intended.to make his defence, and had
be succeeded. Scott would have been non-plus
ad. On the 21st we came to Cerro Gordo the
seat of the battle, where we halted 15 minutes,
to enable us to see ;he place; the ground was
covered with broken guns and ammunition of
every kind; on the hill where the battle raged
thickest, at least 100 Mexicans were lying un
buried, some of them having str.ngs around
their legs, by which they were dragged out of
the way ; along the road, in the nidrle, and in
the ditches were horses by the dozens, inter
spersed occasionally with a Mexican. The
stench was awful. every ranch on the road was
filled with wounded,ansd as this was the first bat
Ic field, I had seen, my leclirgs were indiscriba
le. You could see men, who were fighting on
ly the day before, lying side by side, some- with
their arms shot off. legs, fingers, and toes, shat
tered. This was one of the hardest fought hat
ties our army ever had, and the victory deci
live-for three hours menr never fought more
bravely than the Mexicans. I am extremely
glad that Gen. Twiggy fought so well. He
and Col. Harney distinguished themselves.
Santa Anna fled, as soon as he saw the day
was against him, leaving his carriage, leg, and
all his camp furniture. The cav.lry pursued
him within four nmlles of this place.
'This is a. beautiful city, twice as large as
Vera Cruz, with every thing ettable in abun

of this village, from a memb'er of the "96
JAL~APA, 26th April, 1847,
" Havinag recovered from the latigr'es of the
march to tis plte, I now fulfil n-y promnise
rf writinrg to you. Our life has bee'a hard in
deed, and to console us, the prospect is still
ore gloomry. While stationed at Vera Crurz,
wvithout tents to protect us from the scorchinig
suns, constanit irorthers, and miserable wvat. I
thought that ourr life was severe indeed, (1 do
noi mention the delicious pickled pork, which
rn epicure would have been charmed with, anrd
ihe s,,it palateable crackers,)-bit, now that the
rainy season has commenced, added to the cold
iights, our situation is wretched indeed. We
are only :dlowved three tents to a company, one
for the officers, and thre o'her two are crowded
with-sick. Last night the men were exposed
to a hard rain all night, and it is now raimrn, 4
'elock, P. M. Our mress sleep with the officers
while the captain is in the city. He lias been
quite ill, but haAe now nearly recovered his for.
mrer health; Our march to thi- prlace was by
no means assdere as we aiuticipated. Aller
the frst dray 's march, we-strucek the Mcadamiz
ed road, whrich isethe 10th wonder of the world.
It is from thirty tto sixty feet wide, with-inmm
merale bridges of solid rock, crossing creeks
and ravines. The National Bridge is a most
stuendo.:s work. crorssing a large swift-mnn
tam stream, with four beautiful darchus of solid
masonry, the balustrades five feet in height of
tre same material. Below the bridge theastream
thnders through -a dreadful chyasm, many' hin
dred feet deep. Scores of buzzards were foost
ing ii thiereces~tes, and as we filed'across the
bridge, three milk-white pigeons were' perched
on the summit. Following the stream fur a
mile, over a rock-y path, you come to a cave
overshadowed with banana, orange and other
trophicat trees, with breantiful green' vines
creeping from bongh to bonighmnakig sodeiis
a shade, that thre rays of the suin can never
pierce ihronagh. Going~ into the cave a few
seps; it becomres so cold, that you can remoaim
wii.n it only a lfew moments. In consequence
of te excessive cold and darkness, we coutld
riot ascertain its length. At its entrrrnce is a
beattiful chrystal spring, as cold as ice. It is
sine of the most rotnantisc spots the eye-ofmani
ever rested upon. Cerro Gordo was'-the next
place worhhy of' mention, that we enco~untered,
seven miles before we caime to it. We passed
a siall ranch, where bet ween 50 and 100 of
our wounided were. You cannot' conceive
what a dreadf'ul'nsight they presented. som'e .of
them with- the-rr w ounds not dressed, some with
their arnms blown of', some with shattered lee,
some shot through the face, and tithers ii other
p arts of the body, but all of them in flne spirits.
While there, one who hiad hriS'arm broken, cal
led another to go-after water, the poor fellow
,aid hold on awhile, the doctor has just com
rced to cut my arm oft, which was the case.
This is one of the best naturally fortified placea
on tie whole road, and for. three hours, thre
battle weas one of the most stoaitly contested on
recod. The Giottad was coverrd with broken
guns, and ammunition of every kind. Odl die

The day before w.arrived at ihis. plgoa,; we
encamped near a hacienda of Santa Antna, it
is a beautiful place, and the iuuse mbstihasiid
somely furnistred, with sofas, mahogany ehtairs,
centre tables with marble tops; rocking chairs,
and very large mirrors, and the walls decarated
with the most exquisite paintings I ever saw.

rock ;walls, and were filled with catte:a nd
sheep,which we made free user ofinotwithstand

breathes nothing but war, to the knife. - We
