Tlio steam schoouor Florida, from Brasos, St. Jago, 5th instant, arrived at New Orleans on the 11th instnnt. Although she sailed previous to tho departure of the New York, she brings* a more full report of the battle. Col. Whistler, U. S. Army, bearer of despatches, arrived in her. Messrs. Thomas H. Jenkins, A. Baldwin, B. Wol ler, Sir Woolsley, also ten passenger. We are in debted to n passenger for the following scmi-ofB cial report. On the 1st inst., the main body of the army of occupation marched from the camp on the Rio Grande, leaving in the garrison for field opera tions the 7th regiment of infantry, and the com pany of artillery commanded by Lt. Lowd and Lieutenant Briggs?the whole commanded by Major Brown of the infantry. On the 2d instant, the army encaMperf at Point Isabel early in the morning. On the 3d0 a heavy cannoniuling was heard in the direction of Matamoras, which continued during the day at intervals, through the night, and during the day of the 4th. Owing to the difficulty of communicating with the lbrt, no intelligence was received at head quarters respecting the result of the cannonading, until the morning of the 6th, when a party was sent forward to ascertain the particulars, a brief statement of which is as follows:? At five o'clock on the morning of the 3d, a fire was opened on the fort, from one of the Mexican batteries, and was continued with seven guns. The fire was immediately re turned, and the battery was sileuced by our guns in thirty minutes. Two of the enemy's guns were supposed to be dismounted. The en emy then ceased firing. From the lower fort and mortar battery a brisk lire of shot and shell was kept up, but without damnro to the fo? or garri son. A deli berate fir ? wa? kept up by our 18 pounders upon the enemy's guns in the city of Matamoras, the conmlate fl.ig being respected.? The fire of the enemy was kept up without sus pension till half past wven o'clock. At ten it was temporarily suspended. It ro-commenced and continued at intervals till 12 o'clock at night, although it is believed that from 12 to 1600 shot were fired by the enemy during the period. A casuality occurred | to a sergeant of com pany D, 7th infantry, who was killed. Not one of our guns was dismounted, though the enemy's fire was, for sometime, concentrated on the 18 pounder batteries, and the shot fre quently struck the embrasures. At 5 o'clock on the morning of the 4th, the Aring was commenced by the enemy, which was con tinued lor 12 or 16 shots, and kept up at long in tervals during the day, but without effect. The amount of damage done to the enemy beyond their battery, cannot be correctly known. Capt. Walker, and six other of the Texas vol unteers, brought the despatches to Point Isabel Our boys dismounted one of their 18 pounders, and threw it fifty feet in the air. Gen. TayUr's troops are in fine spirits, and good health. TBLBOIAPH1C DESPATCH-NO. II. It appears that Major Brown, and not Major Ringgold, had command of tlie American fortifi cation during the battle with the Mexicans. The safety of Captain Thornton and Lieutenant Rand is confirmed by the New Orleans Picayune, of the 12th instant. There is nothing further relative to the " heavy cannonading." That news is yet to coine. The Governor of Maryland has received a re quisition from the President for two thousand troops. Further Particulars of the Battle on the Rio Grande.

Again we are ia the receipt of newa from oar army on the bank* of the Kio Orande ; and, although it aomewhat altera the complexion of affair*, i* of a hlgnly interesting character, and doubtless the neat newt that comes, will bring m the official intelligence that Metamoras ia a rain ?that the Mexican forces, this aide the Rio Orande, have been met and conquered.

Taylor'* intention to leave the encampment at Point Inbel. until it 4 portion of hi. reinforcemenu had arrived. In thi* case he would not only leave Point liabel secure, but would be able to make hi* way through any force the Mexican* could bring across the river As for the camp opposite Matamoraa, it is a regular bas tion intrenchment fortification of fivo sides, very stromr and well supplied with guns. It has a force of about 560 men, with provisions, as we are informed, for thirty days and abundance of ammunition,except for the 18 pounders' which is accordingly husbanded. The enemy's artillery! ? lu'?r from the little effect of his cannonading, is not soi perfect or else not so well served as was supposed.

We learn that despatches ware reoaived thia evening from Oeneral Taylor, dated the 3d and &th instant?both Toint Isabel and the fort on the Rio Granee, perfectly On the lit, tho defence* on the river being made strong, (nearly completed,) General Taylor left a gai ri aon of some 500 men, under Major Brown, of the 7tli in fantry, and marched with the remainder of his army (47 m.les) to Point Isabel. Not an enemy was ?ean in the whole distance. All apprehensions for the safety of that depot of supplies were thus dissipated. But on the morning (6 o'clock) of the 3d, the enemy, from the side of Matamoras, opened a heavy cannonade upon our fort, which lasted, with but little intermission, till midnight In the meantime, the enemy's guns (all but one mortar) were silenced by our fort. Maj. Brown lost one sergeant killed, and not another man wounded. Our gallant little band expected an assault from this side of the river at the same time, and waa fully prepared to repel it. None was made. Matamoras was necessarily fired upon in the act of si lencing the enemy's batteries, and also to kill or disperse the troops therein quartered. The buildings were proba bly but little damaged. The inhabitants, no doubt, had mostly Hod before the commencement of the cannon ade. What number of Mexican troops were killed wm only known by coujecture; no doubt a confide rable number. Gen. Taylor, at Point Isabel, expected, on the ftth, to march the next day with a heavy train of supplies for the fort on the rivor, and thence to assume offensive opera tions against the Mexicans-, but a private letter makes the Crobable conjecture that Gen. Arista had returned with is regulars to the other sido of tho ri<-er?leaving in the chapparals only the rancheros?his irregular cavalry. It is not likely that he will re-invade Texas, as Gen. Taylor had received, or expected to receive the 0th instant, seve ral detachments of troops (regulars and irregulars,) from New Orleans. The affair with Captain Walker's Texan rangers, as was represented by rumor, was much exaggerated. In Ihe temporary absence of that gallant and enterprizing officer, his company lost, by a surprize, but a handful of men?8 or 10. (^Captains Thornton and Hardee, and Lieutenant Kane, all of the 3d dragoons, had arrivod unhurt, prisoners of war, at Matamoras, and reported themselves to Oeneral Taylor, by letter, as kindly treated. In the cannonade Major Brown, Captain Mansfield of the engineers, Captain Lowd, and the garrison, were all much ,distinguished. General Taylor always writes coolly. His march, when he expected to meet 8,000 Mexican horse, was a gallant enterprise. The Mexicans have not probably had, good and bad, 4,000 troops on the lower Kio Grande. Surprise and Surrender of Capt. Thornton's [Prom the New Orleans Picayune, May It] On the evening of the 33d ultimo, Gen. Taylor's spies brought in intelligence to the effect that about two thou sand live hundred Mexicans had crossed the Rio Grande to the Texas side above the American fort, and that about fifteen hundred of the same had crossed below. Gen. Taylor immediately dispatched ? squadron of dra goons to each place of crossing for the purpose of recon noitering them and ascertaining their position. The squadron ordered below was in command of Capt Ker, the one above waa commanded by Capt Thornton, and composed of Capt Hardee, Lieut's Kane and Mason, with sixty-one privates and non-commissioned officers. The former commander, Capt Ker, on arriving at the point where it was supposed they had crossed, found that the report was false, that they had not crossed there, but had all crossed above, which was afterwards proved by Capt Thornton's command being surprised, in which Liout. Geo. Mason,with nine men were Killed and two wounded. The wounded were sent to lien. Taylor's camp ; the ar my having* no hospital in the field Capts. Thornton, Hardeo, und Lieut Kane miraculously escaped, together with the balance of the non-commissioned officers and men, but were captured and are now prisoners of war in Mexico. The circumstanoes which led to the surprise are these: After Capt T.'s command had proceeded np the Rio Grande about 34 miles, and as waa supposed, to within about three miles of the Mexican camp, tne guide refused to go any further, and stated as his reason that the whole country was infested with Mexicans. Capt T. however, proceeded on with his command about two miles, when he came to a farm house, which waa enclosed entirely by a chaparral fence, with the exception of that portion of it which bordered on the river, and this was so boggy as to be impassable. Capt T. entered thia enclosure through a pair of bars, and approached the house for the purpose of making some enquiry, his command follow ing him. So soon as hia command had all entered the en closure, the enemy, having been concealed in the chap arral, about two thousand Ave hundred in number, corn command. He then wheeled his command, thinking that he could charge through the enemy and pass out where he had entered, not, however, without a considerable loss. This he attempted, but did not succeod, the enemy bei ng too strong. At this instant, Capt. Hardee approached him for the purpose of advising him how to extricate themselves The firing of the enemy still continuing, Capt Thornton's horse, having doubtless received a shot, ran away with him and leaped the chaparral fence and plunged into t precipice, where he fell, with Capt T. under him, where the latter remained insensible for five or six hours. Thii casualty placed Capt Hardee in command, who attempt cd, with the residue, to made his escape by the river, in tending, on arriving at its margin, to swim it In this h? failed, finding it so boggy that he could not get to it He then returned, taking the precaution to get out oi distance of musketnr, dismounted and examined the arms of his men, determining to sell their lives as dearly as possible. Before he had succeeded, however, in the in spection of his arms, a Mexican officer rode up and asked him to surrender. Capt H. replied that he would surren der on one condition, which was, that if the Mexican General would receive them as prisoners of war, and treat them as the most civilized nations do, he would sur render, but on no other conditions. The Mexican officer bore this message to the Oeneral commanding, and re turned with the assurance that he would . Capt 11. then surrendered. Capts. Thornton and Hardee, with Lieut. Kane and the residue of the non-commissioned officers and privates of Capt T.'s command, are, now prisoners of war in Mexico. The enemy treat them remarkably well. Lieut. Geoige Mason was a fine young officer, and his death is much regretted. His sabre btlt was recognized among some articles that were subsequently captured from the enemy. safe. Command.
