Colonel T. 0. Perkins, of the Nine teen Unite d States colored Infantry, was placed in command. One hundred and eighteen men of the Fourth cavalrv crossed over and occupied the city on that day. Tne following were thelerma of surrender; First, Colonel Canales shall place Matamoras under oidera of the commander of tae United Slate. forces; tetond, the letter gnaranlees to Canale# and hla forces their liberty, andseenre# the safety ° r ~ bn ^ third, the persona and interests of all J 1 ®

Escobedo re sponded that he should be guided by circumstances that the American com mander had prombd him to withdraw all bl« troops, save fifty men, and that be had broken bis promise by retaining 300 men in the place. Randall, who had received orders In no case to fire on Escobedo's men. immediately made arrangements to withdraw with the army, in case he should be attacked. “The lollowing is ihe memorandum of agree ment entered Into between Generals Sedgwick and Escobedo prior to tbe aitack: Ist. General Sedgwick assures General EscoVdo of the con tinued friendship of the United States Govern ment towatd himself and the Liberal Govern ment. 2d. The American commander consid er# himself a# morally holding the city of Matamoias. under the terms of Canales sur render of that place to him, hnt it U for no hostile purpose a« regards the force commanded by Gen ual Escobedo, hut to protect the lives aad pro perly oi American and other citizens ; third, that ihe Amu lean commander will withdraw the armed forcts In case an attack la made, with the exception ol Alien men and officer#, who will re port their presence to General Escobedo, should he capture the citv: fourth, that the United States forces shell bold Santa Cmz and the ferry, and no armed men shall cross to the American shore. “This agreement bad not been mane known to Colonel Bas nail when he sent out the flag of ln “ C Gcneral Sedgwick’# action I# Incomprehensi ble.

If the movement was made into Matamoras, as represented, we arc authorized to say General Sedgwick baa been placed under ar* r.-M, and will he punished. General Sheridan, it is believed, re ached Brownsville on Tuesday last. «ncb wa« bis expectation, as elated in his letter to General Giant.
