JAMES BROWN, President, JAMES G. TRIGG, Secretary of the Board. December, 1845. FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. Severe Action 800 Mexicans Killed American Loss, killed and wound ed, 4G Men Landed from the Fleet. By the arrival of the schr. Louisiana, Captain Eddy, from Brazos St. Jago, which place she left on the llth inst we have received the following impor tant news: Gen. Taylor left Point Isabel on the 7th, with 2000 tiienl and 250 wagons loaded with stores for the Fort. On the 8th came in sight of the Mexican army, and when quite near both armies commenced firing with their artillery. The Mexicans, from 7 to 10,000 strong, surrounded Gen. Taylor. Those on the rear of the Mexicans were soon compelled to retreat. The battle com menced at noon, and a constant roar of cannon was kept up until dark, when all was quiet. Our army remained on the field of battle ready for, and expect ing another hard day's work, but in the morning seeing jio Mexicans, " Gen. Taylor sent out Capt. Duncan's compa ny, who found they had all left the field, leaving their dead and badly wounded, together with fhree Seld-pieces on the ground. About 200 Mexicans were found dead. These vhat were taken prisoners say that our firing was so ex tremely destructive that the whole Mex ican army was ordered to charge upon Gen. Taylor's army, but most cf the men refused. One of their high offi cers rushed into their midst, sword in hand, to urge them on, rather than do which they shol him down. Some of their knapsacks were examined and found to contain nothing but corn and salt. - Gen. T. kept his position and sent in his wounded to Point Isabel. It was thought he would not proceed further until he received a reinforcement, as some places he would have to pass would be very difficult. Our killed and wounded were 46. Three officers wounded, viz; Maj. Ring gold, shot through both legs Capt. Page, badly shot in the lower jaw; and Lieut. Luther. On the 8th, 500 men were landed from the fleet to protect the stores at the Point, or reinforce Gen. T. if necessa ry. They were all 'well armed and eager for a fight with the Mexicans. While the battle1 !was being fought, two companies of Mexican Artillery came down to cross Boca Chica, and it is supposed to march up the beach and take possession of our vessels, with stores, which were obliged to anchor very near the Point. The ship Cum- berland ot under wa iy and ran down towards them, seeing which they wheel ed aifd returned back. & After leaving Brazos, met another ship of war and one steamer standing in for Brazos St. Jago. The steamers Telegraph and Augus ta, had not arrived when the schooner Louisiana left. 'i We are requested by Capt. Eddy to return his thanks to Mr. Benjamin, at the English Turn; for his polite atten tion in furnishing him with a horse to enable him to reach the city. Capt. Eddy stales that the de tachment which brought in the wound- ed could not state positively whether Gen. Taylor would proceed immediate ly to the camp, opposite Matamoras, or wait for further reinforcement. On the evening of the 9th it was under stood that the men landed from the fleet were'to proceed immediately to his assistance, but, from some cause they had not left when the Louisiana sailed. - Left at Brazos St. Jago on the llth mst: schr. Waterman, bound to this port, waiting for coal; steamers Mon mouth, Cincinnati, Neva", and Leo, lightering government stores to Point Isabel; steam schr. whh coal, waiting to unload, inside Bar;' a brig loaded with powder outside, waiting to be lighted over the Bar. Six feet six in ches water on the Bar- On the 14th, saw a schooner ashore on the west end of Timbalier Island; masts and rigging standing; appear ently full of water, and abandoned The Louisiana experienced very heavy squalls on her passage. Shear rived at the Balize on Thursday, Wit could not then gel steam. At lhe heaj of the Passes, met the steamship Ala bama and informed them of the news. They replied with six cheers, which foretold a tale of wo to the Mexicans! Delta GLORIOUS NEWS. Triumph of American Arms! Gener al Taylor again Victorious Rout of the Mexican Army 300 Mexi cans Killed. By the U. S. steamer Col. Harney, Capt. J. D. Wood, arrived this morning from the Brazos St. Jago, we have dates from Point Isabel to the morning of the 13lh inst., when she left. On lhe 9th, Gen. Taylor again took up his march for the camp opposite Matamoras, and again encountered the enemy, in a ravine about three miles below camp, where they had chosen their position to dispute his progress, and in an action which lasted about three hours, defeated them; they had about 300 killed and wound, and lost 9 pieces of Artillery, 3 standards, besides a great number of small arms, pack mules, &c. Amid the rejoicings on account of the triumph of our arms, the Nation has cause to mourn the loss of some of her bravest sons. Gen. Taylor lost about GO killed and wounded, among whom were three of ficers, viz: Lieut. Inges, of lhe Dra goon; Lieut. Cochran, of the. 4th Infan try, and Lieut. Chadburn, of the 8lb In fantry.! Among the wounded are Col. Macintosh, of the 5th Infantry; Lieut. Col. Payne, 4th Artillery, and Capt Hooe, 5th Infantry most of them slightly, and none supposed mortally. An exchange of prisoners look place on lhe 10th, and we understand Col. Thornton had been released by the ex change. v rom the most authentic source we learn that the number of the enemy's forces, in both engagements, was not less than between seven and eight thou sand men. Gen. Taylor, after reaching the camp, returned to Point Isabel on the evening ol the 12th, with a train of., wa gons loaded with ammunition, baggage mules, &c., taken from the enemy. The communication between Point Isabel and Gen. Taylor's camp oppo site Matamoras may now be considered open. Some of the ammunition taken from the enemy in the first engagement was used upon them in the second. The following Mexican officers were taken prisoners; Gen. La Vega, Lieuts. Prada and Velez. Lieut. Col. Martines Aid-de-Camp to Gen. La Vega, accom panied the General voluntarily. They arrived here this morning on the Col. Harney, in the charge of Lieut. J. J. Reynolds of the 4th Artillery. The gallant Cap. Walker was in both engagements, and we are happy to stale escaped without injury. Gen. Taylor and staff were to leave Point Isabel on the 13th for his camp opposite Matamoras. Major Brown, of the Artillery, who was left in command of the fort oppo site Matamoras, died on the 10th of wounds received in gallantly defending his post, and was buried with military honors on lhe 1 llh. . Major Ringgold, well known as 'the commander of the Flying Artillery, also died on the llth,' from wounds re ceived in the action of the 8th. Capt. Page, who was wounded in the same engagement, we are happy to state, is rapidly recovering. Lieut. Luther, also slightly wounded, is con valescent. We have the following verbal intel ligence from one of the dragoons of the U. S. Army: He states that when Gen. Taylor came in sight of the enemy, their num ber appeared so large lhat he exclaim ed "Friends, we must vanquish or die;" saying which he ordered the dra groons to charge on the Mexican Ar tillery. They immediately obeyed iheir commander's order and made such an onslaught on them that they were compelled to abandon nine field pieces and seek their safety in flight. Our informant states that- the Mexi cans retrea'ed in confusion to the other side of the Rio Grande, and that he was among those who pursued them up to the riven Several Mexicans were drowned in attempting to cross. He is not , positive whether the whole or part only of the Mexican army attemp ted to recross the Rio Grande. The steamers Galveston and Augus ta arrived at Brazos St. Jago on the 12th, and were discharging when tho Col. Harney left. The men who had been landed from the fleet were about returning on board their respective vessels, their services not being required. The steam schr. J as. Cage left Bra zos St. Jago in company with lhe Col. Harney with despatches lor Galveston ; consequently, the next arrival to be lockod for will be the steamship Gal veston. Delta. WAR! WAR! War with all its dread consequen ces is in our land. The soil of the United States, lhe home of liberty, has become the theatre of the dire ravages of ruthless invaders. Our common country loudly calls us to lhe field, and nobly has that call been an swered. From each State, country and town, is heard the warlike treadof marshalling hosts. The chivalrous State of Mississippi is pouring forth her sons to the battle plains, to do or die. Our town is awakened from the listless monotony ol every-day transactions, to lhe spirit stirring music of the fife and drum, and the martial array of her Volunteer Corps, commanded by the brave, gallant, and generous leader in many a well fought field, Gen. A. B. Bradford. Without distinction of par ty, and by common consent, has North Mississippi turned upon this man to lead them on to deeds of daring. We will not here descant upon claims to command, or his warrior worth. His own good sword in the battles of his country, has carved his name high in his conntry's estimation, and his man ly and generous bearing has deeply en deared him to the hearts of the people The archives of the War Department bear ample testimony of his bravery, skill and ability while commanding the Tennessee Volunteers in the Florida Campaign. Twice has General Brad ford, while commander of a Major General's Division in the militia, vol unteered as a private in the ranks, and still, in his very word and aclion does he speak forth that memorable motto of Decatur, "My country always." Guard. BETTER THAN BEAUTY. BY C. SWAIN. My love is not a beauty To other eyes than mine; Her curls are not the fairest, Her eyes are not divine; Nor yet like the rose buds parted, Her lips of love may be; But though she's not a beauty, She's dear as one to me. Her neck is far from swan-like. Her bosom unlike snow; Nor walks she like a deity This breathing world below; Yet there's a light of happiness Within, which all may see; And though she's not a beauty, She's dear as one to me, Iwould not give the kindness, The grace that dwells in her, For all that Cupid's blindness In others might prefer! I would not change her sweetness For pearls of any sea. For better far than beauty, Is one kind heart to me? From the Stingaree. a wife wanted. A bachelor would fain engage With lady of a proper age From eighteen say to Iwenty eight To enter Hymen's blessed state, She must be educated well She must in household arts excel ' Accomplished be, converse with ease, Fitted to shine, attract, and please; Sing and play charmingly, and know How to knit, darn, and spin and sow, Wash, starch, iron, brew, knead bake, And bread , cake, pie and pudding make. In short, it is his wish lo wed, And "annex" to his board and bed, One who will be to him, through life, A faithful, charming, eseful wife. Wealth money he requires none, " Having abundance of his own. Any fair she to wed inclined, With requisiters above defined, Applying to the advertiser, Will find a partner lhat will prize her. He wishes each fair candidate For Annexation's blissfull state, A schedule of her charms to send, To which he duly will attend. Direct forthwith to Gainsvill town, Hancock County, Timothy Brown. N. B. Editors throughout the States Will please insert at usual rates, And call lhe attention of the fair To this uncommon chance and rare, And T. Brown all their bills will pay With pleasure on his wedding day. A great old man, is my old Dad; He said I must fight on the Rio Grande. i. ' . . . : I. Mi ; - E ", t ' t 'I! VI :ff ?!; 1 1, I 4.
