Although i: is believed that some 1200 to 1500 shot were fired by the en emy during the poriod,but one casually occured, a sergeant of company U, ol 7th Regiment of Infantry, having been lulled. Not ono of our guns were dis mounted, though the enemy's fire war for some timo concentrated on the IS pound battery, and (he shot frequently struck the' embrasures. J2 five o'clock on the morning of the 4th, the firing was commenced by the enemy and continued for t welve or fif- 'teen minutes,md kept up at long interval durinz tho day. but without effect. The amount of damage done to the enemy boyond the silencing of their batteries cinnot yet be correctly 'known. Capt Walker, of thoTexan volunteers,broughi the despatches to Point Isabel. On the 2d tire army encamped ai Point Isabel, On the morning of the 3d a heavy cannnonading was heard in the d ireclion of Matamoras. which con tinned during the day, and at long in tervalj during the night of the 4ih. Ow ing to the difficulty of communical'ng with the foi ts no intelligence was re ceived at head quarters tespecting thi resu't of the cannonading; until tin morning of tho 5th. tf parly was tent fonvard to communicate, and hrough a de.'patch from Major Brown, on nouncing the particulars, a brief state menl of which follows: five o'clock on tho morning of tht 3d a fir opened upon the fort from one of tho Mexican batteries, and was con linued with seven guns, The fire wah immediately r&furned, and the batterj silenced by our guus in thirty minute rom-the'lbwerTd1rXhoT"bTnen?? 0"sk lire ol j-hol and shell up, but without damage to the fort garrison.

On artillery soldier -was slightly 'wounded by a piece of shell, and many narrow (scapes. We only kept up our fire for about two hours saving our omunition whilst 'heirs was being thrown awy. From heir having thrown from 1500 to 12000 hots and shells, and killing but one of our nun and wounding another; you may judge they aro nono of the bt si ar lillerins, and that'wc had good delencrs. Their shot redeicd a good many of our ienti unserviceable, but all our men arc in good spirits, and anxious lo come to close qujrlcrs. Our picquet guard is now firing at parly of Mexican soldiers, about o mile below the fori. The chappercl holwcen this and the fori is like a behlve, so full is it with Mexicans. Ii is thought thai ihpy will makn an assault on tho real of the fort, and try to repel tho march of the troops from this place ruturning.
