HEADQU'ARTERS OF THE ARMY,
Mexico, Sept. 14. j
1. Under the favor of God the valor
of this army, after many glorious victo
ries,.had hloisted the colors of our coun
try in the capital of Mexico and on the
palace of.its Government.
2. *But the war is not ended. The
Mexican army and Government have
fled, only to watch an opportunity to
return upon us in vengeance. We must
then be upon our guard.
3. Companies and regiments will be
kept together, and all stand on the alert,
Our safety is in military discipline.
4. Let there be no drunkness, no dis
orders and no struggling. Stragglers will
be in great danger of assassination, and
marauders shall be piunished by courts
5. All the rules so honorably observed
by this glorious army in Puebla must
be observed here. The honor of the
army and the honor of our country call
for the best behavior on the part of
all. The valliant must, to win the ap
probation of God and country, be sober,
orderly and merciful. His noble breth
ren in arms will not be dead to this hasty
appeal from their commander and friend.

The post is to be re.estnblishied; Gen.

three weeks in instalments of $50;000.
To this letter we have a postcript
written-by another hand':

Gen. Sata Anna wvent on the 14th
September to Toluta, 14 leagues from
Guadalupe, with ai remnant of his larmy
-in his carr iage-I sawv him enter it.
That Santa Ann'a shtould be at Tlasca
aas- represented in thte letter of the

north of Pueblo, and about twenty'
miles distant. Move directly east from
Tlascalaand you stiike the road to

having considered it infringed, and Wre
therefore demanded an apology or that
that hostilities should commenceon ,the
7th at 12 o'clock. But nothing was done
until the 8th, when a battle commenced
in front of Chapultepec, which -was
warmly contested by both parties. The
A moricans had to retire with a lois of
800 or 1000, the Mexican lobs was also
considerable, but- you well kino* *he

lost, Gen. Leon, of Oajaca, and Gen.
Balderas, both brave cititen soldiers,
they died heroically, leading on theit
troops. The battle was fought princi
pally by the National Guard, the regular
army having fled in the early parf of the
action; and in truth, in all the affdirs up
to the abandoning of the city they have
shown themselves perfectly worthless..,
On the 12ih at break of day the
Americans commenced cann'onading
Chapultepec, which continued the whole
day. On the 13* h they commenced
firing again, and kept it up from 5 till 9
A. M.; then they succeeded in taking
the castle, and immediately followed up
their victory to the garitas of the city,
where they met with a most obstinate
resistance and did not enter tliat.nighty
but on the morning of the 14th the
American army commenced entering the
city and at 7 their flag was waving over
the palace, or what the Yankees- have
called the "Halls of Montezumas," At
12 o'clock the previous night Santa
Anna with all his troops left the city,
leaving the inhabitants at the mercy of
the invading army, and before daylight.
the place was entirely plundered by-thed
leperos and prisoners of the ex-Accoida
da who-had escaped or bgen let''ose.
At 7 o'<lock partial shots were heard in
the city, fired by the inhabitants.b o e'

The following day firing ceased,although.
some partial excesses were committed.

The Mexican population'are far from

ditches and defended by beastworks,
bairicades, and strong works o'f every
description known to military science;
yet the daring and impetuosity df dur
nmen overcame one defence after ano
ther, and by nightfull every work to the
city's edge was carried. Gen. Quit
man's command, after the route at
Chapultep!c, was the first to encounter
the enemy in force. Midway between
the former and the Belen gate, Santa
Anna ha:d constructed a strong work,
bnt this was at once vigorously assaulted
by Gen. Quitmin, and aidded by a f1ank
fire from two of Duncan's guns, which I
Gen. Worth had ordered to approach as i
near as possible from the Sari Cosme 4
road, theeneny was again routed and in' i
full fight. They again made a starid I
from their strod'g fortifrcations at and I
near the Belen garita, opening a tre- I
mendous fire not only of round shut, I
grape and shell, but of musketry ; yet
boldly Gen. Quitman advanced, stormed <
and carried the wofks, alth-ough at grea<
loss, and then every point on this ,:'le I
the city was in our possession. In this I
onslaught two of our braves officer were
killed-Capt Drun and Lieut, Benja
Meanwhile Gen. Worth was rapidly
advancing upon San' Cosn.e. At the
English butyinrg ground the enemy had
constructed a strong work. It was de
fended by infantry for a short time, but
could not resist the. assault of our men
-tite affrighted ILexicanslsoon fled to I
another line of works nearer the city,
and thus Gen. Worth was in pbssession I
of the itrance to San Cosme. As his
men . dvariced' towards the garita, the
enemy jopa heavy fire of musketry
from the house 6'Ips, yell as of grape,
canrister and sh'll frony'tieir-ko aIteries,
thus sweeping the streets completI. -
At thisjuncture the old Monterey gani,
of burrowing and digging through rte
houses, was ado pted. On the right, as
our men' faced the enem'y, the aqueduct
.af'orded a' "partial shelter; on the left,
the. houses gave some protection ;_ but
Manv were still lkille'd or obnud'ed by
the grape whih'sdrept ev I ptas

and eiery minute brought our men near,

meannime two m'onhtaiin lr'witzers' %iere
fairly lifte' to the top'ofron' of tie hou
ses and iht'o th6 cujiplo' of' tle church,'
from whidr they opened a plunging and
most effective fire, while one of Duncan's
guns, in charge of Lient.' I hoot, was run
up under a galling. fire to a deserted
breastwork, aid at once, opened upon
the' garita. I'n this latter daring feat,
four men out ofeight were either killed
or wounded, but still ite piece was most
effective.y s'erled.' The work of tihe
Miners'was'still going on. In one house
%% hichl they hail entered, b' the pick-axe
a favorito' aid' of Santa Anna's was
found. The great man Hiad just fled,
but had left his friend and his su;pper'!
Both were well cared for-the latter
was devoured by ou hungry offleers;
the fC-rmr, after doing the honors of
te table, was mada a cla~ss pV-ioner.
Just asi-iti wai ,sitting in, otui- nmen had
diug arnd ined-their' way' almrost tip to
tire very guns of the enemy, and now,
after a shrort struggle, theny wer e comn
pletry roufed and driven with the loss
of ever'ythring. Tlhe conmmand of the

Gen. WVornlh ordered Capt Hluger to

mortar, to the garita'or gate. of San Cos
rre, and being' ascertained the bearings
and distance of tire grand plaza and pal
ace, at once opened upon those points.
The heavy shells were heaurd to explode
in the very hearts of thre city. At a lit
tIe after'midnright Major Palacios, ac
companied- by two or three memnbers of
te nmunicipal council'of the' city,arrived I
at Gen. WVorthr's headquarters, and in<
great tre'putation informed hint that

and that they wished at once to surrenderI
the capital! Thref wvere refLbrred to

A t 7 o clock tIs mrninng Gen. Scott,i
wtth Iris staff, rode in and took quarters
in tire national palace, on the top of
which the regimental flag of the gallanotL
rifles, and thre stairs and siripies were
aleady flying. An immense crowd of
Lulnketed leperos, the, scum of tho cap
