White. This detachment comprise 180 rank and file. . . , -. By my permission Adjutant R. Walk er, 2d regiment Missouri mounted vol unteer's, accompanied Capt. Burg win Lieutenant Wilson, 1st dragoons, also volunteered ins services as a private in Uapt. ol Vrain company. Captain Burg win, , pushing forward discovered the enemy, to the number of six or seven hundred, posted on the sides of the mountains, just where the gorge becomes so contracted as scarce ly to admit of the passage of three men marching abreast. The rapid slopes of the mountains rendered the enemy a position very strong, and its strength was increased by the dense masses of cedar and large fragments of rocks which everywhere offered them shelter. The action was commenced by Captain St. Vrain, who dismounting his men, ascended the mountain on the left, doing much exe cution. Flanking parties were thrown out on either side, commandea respec lively by Lieut. While, 2d regiment Missouri mounted volunteers, and by Lieuts. Mcllvaine and laylor, 1st dra coons. These parties ascended the hills rapidly, and the enemy soon re tired in the direction of Embudo, bound ing along the steep and rugged sides of the mountains with a speed that dehed pursuit. The firing at the pass of Em budo hnd been heard at La J ova, and Capt. Slack, with t went -five mounted men, had Been immediately despatched thither. He now arrived and rendered excellent service by relieving Lieut. White, whose men were much fatigued Lieutenants Mcllvaine and Tavlor were also recalled; and Lieut. Ingalls was directed to lead a flanking party on the right slope, while Uaptum black performed the same duty on the left. the enemv having by this time re treated beyond our reach, Capt. Burg- win marched through the defile, and debauching into the valley in which Embudo is situated, recalled the flank ing parties, and entered that town with out opposition, several persons meeting him with a white flag. Our loss in this action was one man killed, and one severely wounded, both belonging to Capt. St. Vrain's company. The loss of the enemy was about twenty killed and sixty wounded. ' Thus ended the battle of the pass of Errrbudo.!.- - On the 30th, Capt. Burg win marched to Trampas, where he was directed to await the arrival of the main body, which, on account of the artillery and wagons, was forced to pursue a more southern route. On the 31st 1 reached Trampas; and being joined by Captain Burgwin, marched on to Chamlsal with the whole command. On the 1st of February we reached the summit of the Taos mountain, which was cover ed with snow to the depth of two feet; and on the 2d, quartered at a small vil lage called Rio Ohicito, in the entrance of the valley af Taos. The marches of the 1st and 2d were through deep snow. : Many of the men were frost bitten, and all were very much jaded with the exertions necessary to travel over unbeaten roads, being marched in front of the artillery and wagons in order to break the road through the now. The constancy and patience with which the troops bore these hard ships, deserve all commendation, and cannot be excelled by the most veteran soldiers. On the 3d, I marched through Don Fernando de Taos, and finding that the enemv had fortified themselves in the Pueblo de Taos, proceeded to that place. I found it a place of great strengh, being surrounded by adobe walls and strong pickets. Within the enclosure and near the nothern and southern walls, arose two large build- nns nf irrprnl:ir nvr.imidal form to the ...p- ...c r,. ------ . height ot seven or eignt stones, uacn of these buildings was capable of shel tering five or six hundred men. He sides these, there were many smaller buildings, and the large church of the town was situated in the northwestern angle, a small passage being left be tween it and the outer wall. The ex terior wall and oil the enclosed build ings were pierced for rifles. The town was admirably calculated for defence, ever point of the exterior walls and pickets being flanked by some project ing building, as will be teen by the en closed drawing. 1 After having reconnoitred the town, I selected the western flank of the church as the point of attack; and abjut 2 o'clock, p. m., Lieut. Dyer was ordered to open his battery at the dis tance of about 250 yards. Afire was kept1 up by the six-pounder and the howitzer for about two hours and a half, when, as the ammunition wagon had riot yet come up, and the troops were suffering from cold and fatigue, re turned to Don Fernando. Early on the morning of the 4th,T again advanc ed upon Pueblo. Posting th dragouns Uhder Capt. Burgwin about 250 yards from the western flank of the church, I ordered the mounted men under Oapts. $tj Yttid' nP Slack to a position on tjhe opposite side of the town, whence (hey' could discover and intercept any fugitives who might (attempt to escape towards the mountains, or in the direc liotDof Don Fernando. : The residue of troops took ground about SOO yards irom the northern wall. Here, too, Lieut. Dyer' established himself with the six-pounder and two howitzers. while Lieut, Hassandaubel, of Major Clark s battalion of light artillery re mained with Capt. Burgwin, in com mand oi two howitzers. iy (his ar rangement a cross fire was obtained sweeping the front and eastern flank of the church. ' All these arrangements having been made, the batteries opened upon th town at nine o'clock, a. m. At eleven o'clock, finding it impossible to breach the walls ot the church with the six pounder and howitzers, 1 determined to storm that building. At a signal Capt. Burgwin, (1st regiment United States dragoons,) at the head of his own company, and that of Captain McMillin, (of the volunteers,) charged the western flank of the church, while Capt. Angney, (infantry battalion) and Capt. Barber and Lieut. Boon, (2d re giment Missouri mounted volunteers, cnargeu me norm wan. as soon us I 1 41 . I II A the tioops above mentioned had estab tished themselves under the western wall of the church, axes were used in the attempt to breach it; and, a tempo rary ladder having been made, the rou was lired. About this time Captain Burgwin, at the head of a small party left the cover afforded by the flank of the church, and penetrating into the corral in tront oi the building, enueav ored to force the door. In this exposed situation, Capt. Burgwin received severe wound, which deprived me of his valuable services, and of which he died on the 7th instant. Lieutenants Mcllvaine, 1st United States dragoons, and lloyall and l ackland, 2d regiment mounted volunteers. accompanied Capt, Burgwin into the conul; but the ut tempt on the church dour proved fruit less, and they were compelled to retire behind the wall.' In the meantime small holes had been cut in the western wall, and shells were thrown in by hand, doing good execution. 1 he six pounder was now brought around bv Lieut. Wilson, who, at the distance of two hundred yards, poured a heavy fire of grape into the town. The ene mydunngall this time kept up a de structive tire upon nur troops. About halt-past 3 o clock the six-pounder was run up within sixty yards of the church, ind after ten rounds one ot the holes which had been cut with the axes was widened into a practicable breach. The gun was now run up witnin ten yards of the wall a shell was thrown in-- ihree rounds of grape were poured into he breach. The storming party, a- mong whom were Lieut. Dyer, of the ordnance, and Lieuts. Wiisonand lay- or, 1st dragoons, entered and took possession of the church without oppo sition. The interior was nned with dense smoke, but for which circum stance our storming party would have suffered great loss. A few of the ene my were seen in the gallery where an open door admitted the air. but they retired without firing a gun. The troops lelt to support the battery on tne north weie now ordered to charge on that side. The enemy abondoned the western part of the town. Many took refuge in the large houses in the east, while others endeavored to escape to ward the mountains. These latter were pursued by the mounted men un der Captains Slack and St. Vrain, who killed lilty-onp of them, only two or three men escaping. It was now night, and our troops w ere quietly quartered in the houses which the enemy had a bandoned. On the next morning the enemy sued for peace, and thinking the severe loss they had sustained would prove a salutary lesson, I granted their supplication on the condition that they should deliver up to me Tomas one of their principal men, who had instiga ted and been actively engaged in the murder of Governor Bent and others. The number of the enemy at the battle of Pueblo de Taos was between six and seven hundred, ut tnese aooui one hundred and fifty were killed wound ed not known. Our own loss was seven killed and forty-five wounded. Many of the wounded have since died. The principal leaders in this insurrec tion were Taloya, 1'aMo Una vis, Pablo Montoya, Cortez,and Tomas, a Pueblo Indian. Of these, Tafova was killed at Canada; Chavis was killed at Pueblo; Montoya was hanged at Don Fernando on the7ih instant, nnd Tomas was shot by a private while in the guard room at the latter town. Cortez is still at large. This person was at the head of the rebels in the vulley t Mora, for the operations in that quarter, I refer you to the subjoined letters from Cap- tains Henley, separate battalion Mis- souri mounted volunteers, and Murphy, of the inlantry, and Lieut. McKamey, 2d reg. Missouri mounted volunteers. In the battles of Canada, Embudo, and Pueblo de Taos, the officers and men behaved admirably. Where all conducted themselves gallantly, I con sider it improper to distinguish individ uals, as such discrimination might op erate prejudicially against the just claims of others. , . 1 have the honor to be, very respect fully, your obedient servant, ' j STERLING PRICE.

' Corropondtnce of the N. 0. Daily Delta, Vkra Cruz, April 13, 1847. Eos. Dklta As I stated in niv let ter of this morning, the brigade of Gen Worth took up the line of march for Jalapa, but from rather sudden indispo sittan, the General did not leave with mem. ADoutone ociockan express reached him, with the important infor motion that the column of Gen. Twiggs had fallen in with n largo force of the enemv at Cerro Gordo, a strong posi lion beyond Puenta Nacional, and that a skirmish had taken place between Twiggs' advance guard and the enemy in which Capt, Johnson, lopographica engineer, was severely wounded, and several others. In half an hour after the reception of this newsmen. Worth had mounted his horse and was off so sudden, indeed, that I missed him, not withstanding! repaired to hisquarlersto gather the particulars as soon as I heard iu There is no doubt at all but that San ta Anna, with from 12,000 to 15,000 men, is between us and Jalapa. It is conceded on all sides. Bui if General fwiggs does not whip him, he will at leas; keep him in check until General Scott, who left yesterday, reaches him, which will be to-morrow night. Mai. Gen. latterson lelt here with two bri gades of volunteers on Friday, and he has, no doubt, reached the advance be fore this heur. Gen. Twiggs has between 2,500 and 2.700 menchoice ones, too under is command, and 1 entertain little fear for his safety. Gen. Patterson march ed with Shields' and Pillow's brigades, and all the forces except the garrison of the town and Quitman s brigade, are either at the scene of action or on the road to it. Gen. Scott, I think, was pretty well satisfied, before his departure, that Santa Anna was in the neighborhood of Jalapa, and was making good time towards that point before the express reached him. A terrible battle will be fought at Cerro Gardo, or there will be little or no fighting. An intelligent Mexican told me to-night, that there would be no fight, and that Santa Anna had with him four prominent members of the National Congress, with the aid of whom he hopes to negotiate a peace. believe fuly, that it is the wish of his t'.xccllencv to end the strife, hut wheth er he will embrace this occasion, (w hich by the way, is an excellent one,) I can- ot say. I he horses of the i ennessee cavalry rrived to day from Tampico; nnd as soon as they are landed 1 expect Quit man will leave here. A Skirmish at Puente Ntcional, ntlh, ingmo'e Probable Capture of Cer. ro Gordo by our Troops Santa Anna at or near Jalapa Order t eignt in Vera Crux. Vkra Cruz, April 14, 1847. Ens. Delta: There has been skirmish at Puentc Nacional, and we hourly look for the intelligence of the capture of Cerro Gordo, a strong moun tain fort, twenty-two miles from Jalapa. A decisive battle is expected at this point, for it is the best vantage ground this side of Perote. Gen. Santa Anna was at or near Jlapa, at the last ac counts, but by this time, there scarcely is a doubt that Cerro Gordo is carried by assault, and the army in snug quar ters at the healthy and deiignttui city of Jalapa. Vera Cruz is os quiet and well-governed as any city in the United States. It would improve the health of some to throw do n the walls und let in the fresh air, as the commander thinks of doing. If the army takes any more of those beautiful brass 24's, I hope they will be sent home as trophies. There are in the town and castle nearly one hund red of them. They are of splendid workmanship, and superior to any the United States has of the same calibre. They are worth about g5'000 a peice, and would look extremely well in the 'white settlements." B. Vkra Cruz Anchorage, April 1 1, Kds. Delta: A large detachment of the squndron leaves to-day for Tus pan, commanded by the Commodore in person. The officers anticipated something of a fight at that place. It is believed that there are upwards of 2,000 troops at that place, under the command of Gen. Cos, with some sixty pieces of cannon. The squadron captured at Alvarado sixty pieces of heavy cannon, all ser viceable and in fine order with the ex ception of three. : f The greater portion of the army is now on the road to Jalapa; rumor has it that Santa Anna is there with a large force, and intends to dispute the p ass near that place. The vomito hat not ytt made tu appearance, :Veursr fcc : From the National Intelligencer, April tS, Late from California. We are indebted to a friend for the subjoined interesting letter from Call fornia, presenting the latest intelligence Irom that quarter, and relating some o the dihculties and dangers which bese Gen. Kearny and his small command on their way thither, The letter is from a gentleman who was attached to this party: San Diroo, Upper California Jan. 19 You w ill learn by the despatches with which this will go to Washington that we have met with rather a difle rent reception in California from what we anticipated when 1 wrote you from the Kio del IN one. Upon arriving at the mouth of the KioGila we intercepted a party of Cat itornians who were on their way to bo nora, and got from them the first Intel ligence that a counter revolution had taken place in California; that Genera Flu res, with seven hundred men, had driven out the Americans from the Pu eblo de los Angeles, and were in pos session of the place: and that San Die go had been taken by Comodore Stock ton, though the roads leading from were strongly guarded by the enemy, so that we would nnd it impossible to get in without a collision. 1 hese pea pie were peaceable families, who were moving with their cattle, &c, into So noi a, to get away from the scene ol trouble in California. We arrived at Warner's rancho, the first settlement, on the 2d December; and here our little command presented it most pitiable condition. The men who had to walk the last five hundred miles were nearly broken down with fatigue, and exhausted from an insuffi ciency of food. Our animals had just crossed the dreadful "Uomado,"a des ert of ninety miles, without water or grass, and the few who survived were scarcely able to support their pack. Ve received here lurther intelligence of the state of affairs in California, all confirming what was told us on the Col orudo. We further learned that An- dros Pico, un active leader in the revo lution, had one hundred and twenty well-mounted men in the neighborhood stationed in the vicinity of the roads eading to San Diego; so that an en counter with this force seeming inevi table, it was determined by Gen. Kear ny to attack him. Marching further on, we ascertained, on the night of the 5th December, that this party was encamped ten miles be yond us, at the Indian village of San ' ascual, which was on our road loSan Diego. On the morning ol the 6th, the enemy having hetrd of our approach, were drawn up at this place, and as our purtv advanced and charged on them, they fired and retreated about half a mile, then rallying sudenly, they fought with their lajoes, surrounding the fore most of our men who were pursuing them, and dil most deadly work. At- er a desperate and hand-to-hand fight, they were fairly driven from ihe field. Our loss in this action was very severe Three officers, Captains Johnson and Moore und Lieut. Hammond, and six teen men were killed, and fourteen wounded, including Gen, Kearny dud seven officers. The loss on their side u not known with any certainty th ugh 1 have no doubt it was much less than our own. Uur men lought at a great disadvantage, being poorly mounted on broken-down mules, while the enemy, naving superb horses, und being the most skillul horsemen in the world, made deadly charges with the lance. It was with this weapon that all of our side, weie wounded witn one exception Captain Johnson, was shot through the head. Gen. Kearny exposed himself very much in this action. He was wounded severely with a lance, and would no doubt have been killed but for the time ly aid of Lieut. Emory, of the topo graphical party, who gallantly rode up to the rescue, and had the satisfaction of shooting with his pistol the man who was about to make another deadly thrust at him. The mournful duty of burying the dead, and the attention required to the wounded, caused such delay, that our march was not resumed from the bat tle ground until the next day. As we were then much encumbered with the packs and the wounded men, who were carried along with much difficul ty, our progress was very slow; and as the enemy were evidently watching our movements closely from the hills around us, where we would occasion ally see a few of them, and were no doubt waiting for a good opportunity to take advantage of our crippled con- iition, we had to advance with ex treme caution. While moving slowly along, after having made but nine miles, the enemy suddenly appeared, charg ing towards us at a furious pace from the rear. We immediately drew up to receive them, when they as'suddeuly wheeled off and made for a rocky -hilt near bv, with the intention of firing down into us. Gen. Kearny, seeing thi movement, determined to take' the hill; and,'alihodgh some forty or fifty f the enemy had got tip among the rocks r.nd commenced a fire upon us, they fled before a dozen of our fore most men. ' We took the field a second tirne, and, at wal getting latt io' th day, encamped on the spot; ; This was an exciting skermish, in which none of our party were wounded, though the bullets flew thick and fast. The enemy had one or two wounded, and lostsev. eral horses. -, u ; It was now evident that Pico inten ded to harraas us, bv;,making an attack in every pass thalatirded them an ad vantage they being enabled by theii superior horses to occupy them before we could get up; and, as our wounded men were suffering severely and ream red rest, and this position was a strong one. Gen. Kearny determined to hold it until he should receive a reinforce ment from Com. Stockton, to whom an express had been sent by a trusty In dian. ' We remained here four days, and were so closely surrounded by the en emy, who had received an addition to their forces, and now numbered over two hundred men, that we culd pro cure no provisions, and had to subsist entirely on mule flesh. Seventv-five marines and one hundred seamen, un der command of Captain Zeilin, of the marine corps, came from the ships Con gress and Portsmouth to our assistance und with th's efficient force we march ed into San Diego without molestation. The distance was thirty miles, which we made in two days easy march. We arrived at San Diego on the 12, December. Having ascertained that Gen Flores was at the Pueblo de los An geles with seven hundred men, and prepared to make s strong delence, Gen. Kearny and Com. Stockton im mediately commenced to organize a force to march on that place, and re take it. Six hundred men, composed of seamen and marines from the Con gress, Cyane, and Portsmouth, Captain Gillepsie's company of Califoinian vol unteers, and the remnant ol United States dragoons, were raised, together with six fine pieces ot Artillery. Ihe whole of this force was put under com mand of Gen. Kearny. The companies of sailors and marines were command ed by the officers of the navy and of the marine corps attached to the squad ron, who have throughout this Califor nian war been doing active laud ser vice." 1 he dragoons were under vapt. Turner and Lieut. Davidson, now the only surviving officers of th regiment who came through with Gen. Kearny. Lieut. Emory, of the torigraphical en gineers, who has throughout, rendered most efficient military service, was made adjutant general to the army. This little army took uo the line of march from San Diego for the Pueblo on the 29th December. We had re ceived no authentic, intelligence of their movements since that lime until the ar rival of Lieut. Gray, who came on yes terday with five men, nnd who will sai from here in a few hours in the prize brig iualakadell.efor Panama, with de spatches from Gen. Kearny and Com. block ton tor Washington. We learn from Mr.. Gray that Gen tea my had two skirmishes with the enemy on the 8th and 9th, fairly rout' ing inem imtn times, and had alter- wards marched triumphantly into Pu eoio. rremontwiio was advancing on the same point with four hundred men from Monietey,had made a treaty with Andros Pico, in which the priuci pal conditions were that they should lay down their arms and become citi zens of the United St iles. It is Imped that the war will soon be brought to close.

The undersigned was authorized by his government to levy contributions upon the people for the support of bis army; but unwilling to throw the heavy burden of the war upon those who. with few exceptions, manifested a nu- teral disposition, he has continued from the first to pay punctually nnd liberally tor all supplies urawn irom tne country for the support of his troops. .

We learn from the Louisville Demo crat, that the federalists held a meeting; on Tuesday night, the 19th instant, to nominate General lay lor lor the f res idency. Graves, the murderer of the lamented Cilley, was appointed chair man. Mr, Ronald was nominated lor kecretary." Air. Ronald said he did not think that lie understood the Object of the meeting; he was ready to do honor to Gen. Taylor for bis services, but be fore he took part in nominating him for the Presidency, he must know something of his political principles. In reply to this, Graves stated that the meeting had been called irrespective ol what had heretofore been their party connections; and disposed of whig principles as follows: V Annexation was not before the country." ,. As to the tarifT, "there was every shade of opin ion amongst men of both parties; all would agree to have a discriminating' tariff." "The distributions of the sales of the public lands could not come up for years, ns the whigs never insisted' unon that, excentin cases of a redund ant treasury." The ' United stales? Bank, the odious sub-treasury, and the' veto power, were entirely obsolete,"' so much so that he did not deign to mention them as party questions. "So endeih all the awful hobgoblins of whiggery, that were to ruin the coun try if carried out by the democratic party. Who cannot recollect when Old Hickory removed ' the deposited from the United Slates Bankt What then, according to whiggery, was suffi cient to save, the country from utter destruction but to replace the depositee, in the keeping of that inslituikn?v' jNoilung could save us but that.' Wic cannot recollect when the old hero put his loot upon that viper, -the- United Stales Bunk? What then, avoiding to the predictions oi whiggery, but the re-charter of that institution, would save us from annihilation! Nothing- we must be ruined. Wm cannot re- collect, but a lew month ago, accord ing to whiggery, the establishment of the Independent Tt;ensBiy was to fit out the President of the United States in lull military costume, with a broad sword in one hand and n awful iron chest wn his biick; and thus armed and equipped, the purse and the swurd uni ted, he was to go through : this happy country dealing desolation and destine lion, cut nla lor whiggerv! the inde pendent Treasury, is in full operation und our finances are in the best ewndi- ' tion; exchanges are nothing; the coun try is being inundated with specie, and all is well.

Who has forgo-iien the pre dictions Of whiggery on that occasion? ltuin was to overtake us, the mechan ic, was to starve, me tarmer s cram was to rot, on his hands for want 'of a "home market;" manufacturers wr to quit operation, discharge their work men, and they were logo begging about , our streets; our government credit was' ' to go down; in short, all the evils thai man is heir to was to come upon us ar a people.
