Sir; I havo tho honor to report that the troops under my command, including the mounted volunteers from Texas, marched Irom Marin on the 18th, and encamped be foru Monterey on tho ID h i list. It war immediately discovered that the enemy oc cupied the town in force, and had added gieaily to its strength by fortifying tho ap proaches and commanding heights, A close recomiuissancu was in ado the same overling by tho ollicers of engineers and topographi cal engineers on both flanks of the town, and it was determined, fro n the itilnrma lion procured, to occupy the Salnllo road in rear of t!io town, cairying, if practieablt the sevcial foilitied eminences in thai diree don. The 2d division of reguhi troops and a portion of Col. Hays's rfgimcnl ol mounted volunteers was accordingly detach d under Brig. Gen Worth on this service. it noon on the 20ih. A tcn'iuch mortal nd two 21 pounder howitzers were placed hi halteiy during the night to play upon the citadel and town. At 7 o'clock those guns upeued and continued a deliberate lire, which was returned. To create a still (ur iher diversion in favor of lie n. ortli's muveiueut, the remainder of the force, ex. eept a camp guard, wns dinpln ed around the rentrc and li ft of the town, The infan try and one battery oftSio 1st dmu'iiu made a strong dctniHiitratinn on the Itft.and soon became so closely engaged that 1 moved ,,r wan! tho volunteer division under Mjor General Butler to its support, leaving one battalion, (1st Ivoiituck)) to cover the mot- tar battery. A close coolest then ensued. which resulted in the capture of one strong battery of four guns, which with soino ad jacent defences our troop now oompy. A garrison was lefi to hold llns position, and ilio remainder of tho force returned v mimp. In the mean time General Won h had en gaged the enemy early in the morning, and lofeaied him with considerable loss. li the course uf the day two of tho baileriep in rear of the town were carried by storm nig parties of the lid division, and a third was earned this morning at dawn ot day. I'he Bishop's Palace occupied the only re maining height in rear of the town, and i completely comuiM.ded by tlio works b ready carried. Gen.
