[From the Louisville Journal.) The following are extract! from a letter of Oeneral Butler to a near relative in thii city.

Monterey i? ouri, but not without a heavy lose, auii my division hai probably sustained more than one ihalf of it. 1 am myself wounded, but not badly. 1 was struck by a musket ball below* the knee ; it enterod in front, grazed the bones without injuring them, ranged round through the llesh. and came out ou the opposite side. 1 bocame faint from loss of blood, and was compelled to leave the field, afterjiaving been in it under a heavy lire of grape and musketry, for three hours I have been required by ray surgeon to keep perfectly still ever since the battle. I was in the act of leading the Ohio regiment to storm two of the most formidable batteries in the town, flanked by a atone wall, ten feet high, with a deep ditch in front, and eovered by a strong musketry force in the rear, under complete shelter. Thore were two other batteries of grape shot dischargod, that swept the ground continually. y Col Mitchell, who commanded the regiment of Ohio volunteers, was wounded about the same time that I was, aad we then prudently abandoned the enterprise, as webeciraa convinced that our loss would have been probsbly at least one hundred more men, had we perse vered. 1 hope you will not think I acted rashly. I know that I am often rash where I involve myse'/ alone ; not so, howaver, when the fate of others is at stake. The condition in which we were placed fully justified, if it did not positively require us to make the attempt.? The peculiarity ef our situation I cannetfnow explain, without going into greater detail than 1 am able to do. The battle commenced about 9 o'clock A.M , and sontinued without intermission, with various degress of intansity for sight hours. 1 had almost 1,000 men in the battle, (the Louisville Legion having been left to guard our mortars,) and of that number we lost in killed ami wounded about 950. We took our battery and a houso fitted up as a fortification. and assisted the regulars in taking a second. Gen. Worth with great gallantry and equal success, and with far less lets, carried on his operations on ths opposite side nf tli* t.i\x-t1 The loss of the regulars, who acted with ua, was nearly proportional to ours, aa I learn, though 1 hare not seen the official returns Under all the circumstances, the terms of the capitulation aro favorable to us There are still several strong forts in the hands of tho enemy, which we would have been compelled to take by regular approaches or with heavy losses. The plaza is of itself an enormous fortification of continuous houses, with thick stone walls, nu.l all the streets leading into it strongly lortiiied and filled with guns. They admit that they will have at least 8,040 fighting men, whilst on our part we cannot muster 5,000 for duty, and have only a few heavy guns, and those we took from them. Never, I believe, did troops, both volunteers and regnlars, behave with more calmness and intrepidity, and 1 do not believe, that for downright, straightforward, hard fighting, the battle of Monterey has ever been surpassed. Camt ussr Mowtsrst, Sept. 89, 1840 Oa the afternoon of the 'J3d our regiment was moved into the city to occupy a captured fort. It was the second fort taken on the left, aad the one from which grape and canmster shot were thrown with great effect Two men from our regiment wero wounded by shot from this fort, one of them a member of the Blues (Bartlett) had his leg taken off'yesterday below the knee Kive men of our regiment have been struck, with ctnnon shot?Bartlett and Young (mentioned in my previous letter.) seriously; the other three slightly. As our regiment was on the way to the lort, we were fired upon by tho main Mexican battery. An eighteen-pound shot passed within two or three feet of my rear rank, as we were defiling.around the first foil. Our flank was directly exposed to the fire, and a few feet more to tho right would have caused half the ? !. tioned our guard and took possession. About seventy prisoners were at work on it, throwing u;> a defence on the aide next the city. During the night we had several alarms, from our picket guard discovering and firing upon small squads of Mexicans moving near us They were doubtless deserting the city. Durmg.the night we heard the Mexican trumpet sounding a parley, but Could not discover their position At daylight we ne an officer (Col. Moreno) with a flag of truce, and his trumpeter, on a bridge within thirty yarda of ua. Lieut. Col. Rogers, Capt. Stewart, and myself went out to receive his communication, but were prevented from getting to him by a deep and rapid stream. He called out to us to go further up toward the fort, whore we could cross; but we were so long in finding the bridge tkathe passed on to the first fort. We regretted exceedingly that we could not have received the letter, as it was for Gen. Taylor, offering a surrender of the city. Col Moreno is from Florida, of which his father waa Governor before it wai ceded to tho I'nited States. qp The slaughter has been great, and it will be aome time before the actual loss can be estimated, i think it maybe put down with safety at upwerds of 1000 killed and wounded, counting on both sides. Some have put it down at more than double that number. It i? laid that 011 the 23d, Worth'* division, which advanced near to tho plaza by the evening of that day, killed upward* of four huDdreii of the enemy. Yesterday the prisoners were kept busy from morning until night burying the dead which lay around the forts occupied by the Ohio and our regiments. The stench from the dead bodies was intolerable, and I was glad when the regular* marched into the fort and relieved ua For our better defence, a brass six-pounder* (captured) was sent to our fort, with about thirty round* of canister and round shot. It had been left in a hurry, as tho charge was still in it, which, by the wsy, was a heavy one, consisting of canister an 1 one round shot. The afternoon we arrived at the fort I went out to examine the position of the ground, so that in case of attack we could know how to mancruvre. While out, I waa fired at twice from a house within a few hundred yards of the fort. When the caonon was placed in my charge, and the first thing 1 done was to poiat it directly at the house from which the shots wero fired, aud I was sorry that the true* prevented my giving them one pop. From all accounts, we are induced to believe that peace will new be made. All of my men are well, and I feel thankful that fortune has thus favored me. Had the attack commenced in the night, we should have been in the heat nf it- as it was, the regiments on the left were nearest the scene of action, and were hurried into it Chas. il. HaarKa. [From the Cincinnati Gazette, Oct. 57.1 Great anxiety prevails to obtain an accurate list of the killed and wounded in the siege and capture of Monterey, at which it is apprehended eur loss has been more severe than it was at first reported. The detailed despatches from General Taylor, with the reports of the principal officers, may now be soon expected, and it is honed that they will furnish a list of the names of the privates, as well as the officers killed and wounded, whe have so freely shed their blood in maintaining the honor and right of their country. We are indebted to the tfaihville Whit for an Kxtra containing a list wi?h the names of the killed, wounded and missing in the first regiment of Tennessee volunteers, commanded by Col.

At length we hare news direct from our Cincinnati soldiers who participated in the battles at Monterey. A friend has politely shown us a letter from Dr E K | Chamberlain, surgeon of CoL Mitchell's regiment, dated on the J6th of September, from which we gather the following :? The force of the s^giment engaged in the action was 460, of which 60 were killed, wounded and missing Dr. j ' Chamberlain says he had made eight amputatious and extracted fifteen balls Col. Mitchell's wound is iu the leg. and is a severe one. He was struck by a two aud a ] . ltnll* nitn**A arratM ihnt on/1 *K<a Kama ^.1 Uls? l>" 1 the Cincinnati bar kilied under him. Lieut. Armstrong, j of tho Cadet., bad hi* knee ahattered, which rendered ' amputation necessary. The doctor coniidored bin iec> very, a' the Cine he wrote, doubtful. Capt Goo go. of the Bu.lor county company, vu wounded in the head and tide, by a shell, but not teverely. Lieut. Nilet, of ; the Cadets, musket ball in the hip?ball extracted, and i wound doing well. : Some other olhcers of the regiment were wounded, I and many privates severely, none of whose names are given, as the doctor wrote in great haste, surrounded on all tides by urgent professional duties. He, howovor, l mentions that sergeant Chat. L'H. Long, and private N. M'Lean, of the Cadets, fought like heroes, and escaped unhurt. Major General Butlor was wounded In the leg in the early part of the action, and the command of the whole division devolved on Brigadier Gen. llamer, who acted with coolness and bravery throughout. The vldvirtitcr issued an extra yesterday afternoon, giving a letter irom a friend at head quarters of the army of occupation, dated " Before Monteiey, September 3Mb, 1848," from which the following is an extract:? " Genoral Butter was wounded in the leg early in the engagement, and the command of course dovolved upon one of Ohio's favorites?General Hamcr. His coolness i and deliberation is the theme of general remark The > boys call him our " Sledge Hammer." During the 31st, 1 Dr. Chamberlain was the only surgeon in camp, and all I ,L? ....... ? - I-J ?V_4 !_ .1 kuni t?ui0 in were miuwu ujiuu bii hand*. His labor waa incredible." The writer alao says " The firat Ohio regiment I'M in the hotteat part of the fight all day, but did not suffer aa much aa the Tennessee and Mississippi regiments. Col. Mitchell ia wounded severely in the leg, by a two ounce ball paasing through it below the knee, but ia doing well. Adjt. Armstrong, of the Cadets, a noble and gallaut fellow, has had hia leg amputated." [From the Maysville Eagle.] We have seldom heard an old soldier recount the history of his life, and " fight his battles o'er again" with ?greater sincerity, or more honest enthusiasm, than a riend exhibited in our sanctum, on Saturday, while reading of the gallant conduct of hia|old chum, " Will Worth." They were clerks together thirty-fire years ago, in Hudson, New York?clever, industrious young men. Our friend by no means lacked spirit, but waa of rather a quiet, business turn, while Worth was of a nervous, quick temperament, with a fiery eye, and restless disposition?daring, confident, and "independent as a lorJ." While thus employed, a recruiting sergeant? for it was in the early part of the late war with England ?paraded the streets of Hudson, drumming up "young generals" to fight for " free trade and sailor's rights."? Enough had transpired already to rouse to the nighest pitch all Worth's martial ardor, and without a second thought he became a soldier. Worth's aneestrv, our friend informod us, wore from Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, a proud, bold stock, of high ami somewhat aristocratic hearing. Some of the family had intermarried with the noblest and bravest of the Indians of New England, thus uniting the beet blood of the Aborigines and oi the primitive settlers of the Old Bay State. Worth, when young, to all the energetic and freeborn nature of the Anglo-American, adaed the roaming, restless, warrior disposition of the red man of the forest. With a broad forehead, high-cheok bones, piercing eye, stout, athletic frame, quick, warm blood, and a brsve and fearless heart?the war offered the opportunity to make of such material a valiant soldier and a successful officer. Worth had been garrisoned for some months at . when the misconduct of a fellow soldier set him upon tho first round of the ladder Worth was a brother, then, as now, to a soldierin distress, and encouraged his fellow, | after he had been made known the penalty of his conduct, to make to the commanding officer a representation of the affair in writing He ploaded his ignorance and | want of skill in writing, and the probability of failure. I "Here, give me a nen." said Worth, and in a tew minutes. (lathed oil', in a clear, bold hand and unassuming manner, a few line* vindicating; the aoldier in strong terms, and presenting; his ease in a view not entertained before The soldier presented it to his oBlcer?" Did you write this P' was quickly asked, audanswered in the negative. "Who did 1" " Private Worth, sir " " Send Private Worth to me." In a few minutes Worth presented himself with the same rather blustering end consequential air that usually marked his bearing, and with a prompt "At your service, sir." " Did you write this 7"' " I did, sir," short and quick. Sundry questions were asked as to his former occupation, object in entering the army, ike , which were answered in the same positive and reckless tone, aad Worth was dismissed with " Come to my marquee in the morning." There was so little that was encouiaging in tho Commander's tone, that Worth was totally unconscious of tho good fortune in store for him when he appeared next merning, and the officer observed " I want you for my private secretary " This was enough for Worth. His active, resolute and determined manner, and commanding appearance, struck the scrutinizing eye of General Scott, when they first met, who forthwith selected him as his Aid. Opportunity soon occurred, and in the early part of the battle of Lundy'a Lane, while charging bravely upon the enemy, Worth, fell, it was supposed, mortally wounded. No one who has ever read the history of that battle,?almost unparalleled in the severity of the contest, the obstinacy with which the veterans of KnglaBd maintained their ground, and the irrepressible ardor which marked every charge of the Americans, in the lace ef bayonets and cannon,?can tail to appreciate the intrepidity and gallant bearing of Worth on that occasion. When he fell, two of his soldiers attempted to bear ?im from the field, when a ball strurk one of them, scattering his brains over Worth and his companion. The other seized him in his arms, and carried him from the reach of the ene. my. Mis friends mourned him as dead, and mi nth* elapsod before his wounds hsd so far healed as to enable him 10 return to the serrice hiu we have not time to follow him through his vari- | ous successes and promotions, and his gallant ami distinguished conduct in the Florida war. The part he acted in the capture ef Monterey was hold, deliberate, and eminently successful. They underrated his military talents, who supposed his commendable determinations to add laurels to his name, to atone for his unfortunate absence from the army on the memorable 8th and 0th of May, would urge him headstrong into the tight, headless of his own life or the lives of his men. Worth was always bold, intrepid, sometimes reckless of consequences when duty prompted ; but calm and collected, when he knew sucsess hung upon coel, deliberate anil decisive action, lis government has rewarded his worth by steady promotion, and his countrymen, with one voice, bestowod " honor upon whom honor is due " The wisest act of the President, in the whole conduct of the war, was that which refused Worth's proffered lesignation, and restored him to the Army and his country .fll [From the Louisville Journal, Oct 27.1 Letters have been received in Louisville from several officers of the legion, giving interesting details of the three days fight, and stating their own participation in vut3 iiiuimui mi an . u ap^iciiiH iu?v iuo ijuuiiviue vuniuteer* did their part, and that their hardships and trial* were levere.

Maurico Ugarte, commanding the force marchI injg to the assistance ol Armijo, having found, on the 23d of August, the department of New Mexico quite panic stricken at theappioach of the American aMpy, decided on retiring to Valverde, having abandoned sBhepe of in| corporating his auxiliaries with the troops of that General, a report having been brought in that an American force of ScOO men were marching to the attack of the garrison in the north Here follows a relation of the moat remarkable events which characterized the operations of General Kearney in New Mexico from the commencement of the invasion, with whioh our readers are alreauy acquainted. According to the Mexican accounts, it appears that Genaral Armijo rallied together, on the 14th of Auguit, a force of two thousand man. On the 15th, a dispute arose amongst tha principal officers of the auxiliary forces, tha result of which RK I NTNG, NOVEMBER 2, 18 was the disbanding of these bodies, when General Armijo | retired to Galisteo, abandoning the provincial compamee altogether. The inhabitants attribute the loss of the Department to General Armijo. On the ltith, General Kearney, at the head of 3000 mon, took possession of Santa re. when the American Hurt was hoisted, and the clergy anil the authoritie* swore obedience to the new Government. The army, it wai stated, would continue i'a march for the purpose of taking possession of the Paso del Norte. Gen. A run jo had ?eut an express to his government, with information that the Ameiicwoi were about soiziug Chihuahua On the 1st August the Supreme Tribunal of War was re organized, presided over by Geo* i al Alvarez. Then . follows an account of the reception of Santa Anna in the capital, rejoicings, etc etc., which we have already published; and the liberation o( Commander Carpender, the officers and men of the Truxton, who were to be ex- I changed for General I.aVegt. General Halas, the pre- j sent executive of Mexico, had iaaued a decree, iuvitiug i foreigners, exercising useful professions, to naturalize themselves, promising thern imnodiately all the rights, p'ivileges, immunities, etc., of Mexican citizens. On ! the 9th of September the Americans took possession of the capital of New .Mexico. On the 10th, the Commandant General, Don Manuel Rodriquea Cela, arrived at Morelia. On the same day, a meeting of tho principal capitalists and commercial men was to take place at tho office of the Minister of Finance, te arrange about a donation to be made to the government at that particular juncture, and in tho present dilemma in whicn it stood. On tho !13d a meeting of the junta was charged with tho task of proportioning the succor to be forwarded to the supreme government. General Ampudia, under date 10th September, forwarded a dispateh acquainting his government that the Americans had not advanced on Monterey, although thay had increased their forces in Camargo and Ceralvo. Tho Legislative Assembly ol Chihuahua bad authorized the governor to contract a loan of $6,000, on hypothecating a quantity of tobacco. 8enor Yaniz, Com inandant General at Jalisco, marched on the 7th September, with a considerable number ef troeps, for Tapir. und San Bias, in order to prepare fer tho defence of those point* in cms of invasion. Various particular* aro recorded of the advance of Oeneral Taylor'* troop* ; the arrival of Ampudia at Monterey ; hi* declaring the city in a itate of seige, which are already well known here. General Mine* Pont* had been appointed governor of Tamaulipa*. A decree had been published in the city of Mexico on the 20th September, for the formation of a supreme council, to be composed of threw individual* ; in tne event of the decoaso of the General President ad interim, the president of the council should succeed him. Nothing was known at Vera Cruz, up to the 30th, of the capture of Monterey. On the 24th ult. it was announced that the 1st brigade of cavalry had left the city of Mexice, en route for Monterey, and that Santa Anna was to leave the next morning In order to expedite the march of the force* destined to operate with those under Ampudia, against the Americans, he had pledged his own personal credit The National guard would alono lorm the garrison of the city, the other brigades wore then marched out, with Santa Anna at their head, on the 2Mb.

Tbii morning 1 visited the memorable battle field of the mountain city. Where the murderoua cannon roar ed, and the brave and accomplished officer and eoldier sealed their devotion to their country as they fell in its defence, now all is hushed in the quitscent complacency of deep and solemn stillness. Where was heard the horrid groans of the dying, and was seen the pale and quivering lip, and throbbing brow, now is heard nothing but the moaning breeze rustling the leaves of the orange grove; and is seen the fresh mound, with no obeliscal stone to tell where lie the mouldering remains of the noble dead. Peace and quiet reign on (he bloody field, and may they ever continue. 1 have seen the horrors of war depicted in the most awful form that the liveliest iniBgination, and the strength of powerful words could convey, but my ideu of its <i re artfulness was but taint, until 1 saw failing around me the dead, dying and wounded; and I, poor soldier, compelled to tush impetuously forward, trampling them under ray feet, heedless of their tears and agony. I havo not the slightest wish to witness another like scene. I passed through the lower part of the city this morning, and from what I saw it is a "splendid place."' 1 leave for another time a more full description. The Mexicans had three batteries, containing three guns each, which we took early on Monday morning, on the east side of the rivet; and from observation I do not sec how it was possible for us to charge them in the manner we did, for they are in themselves strong, and every street leading to thorn is blockadeJ in the firmest possible manner.

The modest writer, though ho has done good service in our lotmer battles, would be the last to publish his own deeds or thoio of hi* regiment or corps. Himself the son of an officer of the army, he has been reared in a school which teaches the lesson of soldierly propriety, that after one's individual duty has been well performed on the field, it belongs to others to relate his exploits. Yet so clear and graphic is the narrative, that 1 have ventured to incur the writer's displeasure by giving it to the llrraU MoisTtacv, Mexico, 8ept. 28, 184A. On the 24th, I had but time to write you a few words, to announce to you my safety and the triumph of our arms. Before this reaches you, the special messenger to Washington will have arrived, with the|particulars of our recent engagements with the Mexican army. As to operations onthu east side of the city, I can give you no account, as I have not as vet heard them in detail from any one engaged. 1 simnly know that the 1st division under Col Garland, (Col Twiggs being sick) and the volunteers under Major General Butler after taking one I of their forts, entered the town, and became engaged in a street fight, in which they were terribly cut up by the ' croaa tire oi tno .YlCXIClin canuou mm iiiiauuy, who whip ' poated in the homo* filled with loop .hole*.

(Worth'* ) On the dOth, we moved from our encampment at the Walnut Spring*, j and marched in the direction of the weit of the city with the intention of attarking that pert, and cutting ofT | the retreat ahould one tie attempted. We encamped about half a mile from the main road to Saitillo. In the : merning the march wan resinned, and we had ju*t reached the Haltillo road, when our advance guard, > compoied of monnted Texan*, w?? attached by (our or Ave hundred ol the Mexican cavalry. The attack wa? made partly on the plain, and partly on'tha *lo[* of the hill around which the road wound.

After tlui attack we moved on our route mmmmmmmmmmmmmrnmm IERA 46. on the Saltillo road. The Mexicans now commerced pouring round ihot into our columns Irom the heights on the weat of the city.

After resting, they eomuience*l the aacent, driving the Mexican mUntry from their poaition on the aunimit and capturing a piece of artillery. 1 assure you it was neauinuiiy none i ne Mexicans on toeing our movements toward* this height, tent a strong re-inforcameut of infantry from the hill to the north and nearett the city Oen. Worth ordered the 6th and 7th iufantry out in support of Smith's command. Alter tho first height was carried, the entire command under Oen. Smith (the now Colonel of the mounted riflemen) proceeded to take a buttery farther down, and ou the road leading to tliis hill from the town. It was gallantly carried, and tho enemy was now comptetcly driven from this height. These redoubts being in our possession, we encamped on the Saltillo road, which they commanded. The next morniag, tho 22d, at 3 o'clock, Lt. Col. Childs with 260 Texans, three companies of the Slh, and two of tho artillery battalion started to tuke tho second height, or that on which the strongly fortified Bishop's l'aluce is situated. Wo reached the bottom of tho hill at day-light and commenced ascending, but had not pioceedeu far beforo the Mexican infantry poured their fire into us. In allow moments wo were on the top, driving the enemv into the Bishop's .palace, which is ubout half way down tho hill in the direction of the city. A pirt of our infantry and the Texans wero posted behind a small ridge on the hill aud from Siis a continual ,flro was kept up all tho morning on the palace, a distance of about 160 yards. During the morning, the enemy attemntod twice to charge with a stiong body of cavalry, but the galling flro of the infantry and Toxans completely defeated them. At last, about 3 1'. M., they attempted their last chaigolike the others, it resulted in defeat. Tho men reserved their tiro until they were within a few yards of us, when they poured it into them, ami "up and at them" with their bayonets. Those looking ou Irom the opposite bank, apeak of it as a beautiful sight. We now had possession offthe Bishop's palace, and the entire height which commands the city. The artillery batteries soon came up from the camp and poured a tire into their retiring columns. Three pieces of arti'lery were taken {in tho Bishop's palate.

A part of our troops went from houso to house, by hrouking through the walls, and gained the housetops, from which a tight was kept up ull the afternoon. The balls haw a little thicker and fastor than at Kesaca. The infantry rattled and tho artillery roared all the wholo afternoon, but with a slight loss 011 our side.

Hostilities were suspended, and conferences held between Generals Taylor und Ampudia. At first General T. demanded the unconditional surrender of the whole Mexican army, but a compromise was made, of which you havo been informed* The place itself is 01? vast fortress Nearly evory itrect was barricaded, ifid every house full of loop holes.

Kearney, with about eight hundred men, left this town on an excursion south. We Went to a villago dhlled Tome, about one hundred mile* distant. We struck the Uio Grande twenty-seven miles from this place, at a village callod San Domingo, inhabited by the Puebla Indians Our reception at this village was quite a grand all'air the principal men and braves ot "Me Trine mot ua ell iiillPH iro?u mu iuwu, nau bncviiou ui in ; the braves w?i?- mounted on their hot horses, and dressed in the most Randy upnarel, anil armed and equip. ad in the lame manner as when they go out lor the purpone of fighting.

This was repeated several times, to the great admiration and astonishment of all who witnessed it |I have never seen better horsemen any where, and from what 1 could discover, I should taka them to be formidable in hattlo, if properly armed. Thoy are fine looking men, and much superior in every respect to tha Mexican population They have a very fine village, most splendid vineyards, and appear to be much mure comfortable in ovcrv respect than the I MexiaaDS. When we got into tho village, we were invited into the priest's house, where a most sumptuous repast was aet out, conaiating of the be*> grapes i ever saw, meloua , apples, cakes, and with liquor sufficient to wash them down. There is at thia town,'quite an extenaive church, to which it attached the priest's house, where he keep* his wive* or concubines. The priest at this place has fourtwo of them are quite good looking. After our repast, the General made a speech to the citizens, who appeared quite well pleased ; they then escorted us out of town, and we went on our way rejoicing, with full stomachs, and every man with just liquor enough in him to make him leel patriotic. Tina was the only Indian village we visited. After we left San Domingo, we passed through villages evory eight or {ton miles, until we reached the village of Tonie. Moat af thera, however, were quit# small, and the inhabitant*, with the exception of two or three men in each, are a poor miserable aet. The only village* on the Rio Grande that we visited worthy of note, are San Domingo, Han Phillippe, Alhaqnerque, and Toni. Albaquerqu# wai the residence of Armijo. We halted a short time at this place, going and returning. General Kearney called on the late Gover nor'* wile, ami passed an nour or iwo, a* nr ioiu me,very plessanfly.

The people near the town of Tom, and the inhabitants of the different villages havo hourd of our intended visit, and the General so arranged our marches as to bring us to this town the evening before the anniversary of their patron Saint, a great day with the inhabitants of that region of country; and 1 assure you it was a great day not only with them, hut to all who were present ; there was an immense concourse of ;peopl?, men, women, children, Mexicans, Indians, and white folks Tliey had prepared fire works, which were gotten up in a very good style, the town was illuminated, they had a theatre, that is, a play in the open yard, which appeared to lie well received by the inhabitants, they also had a fandango, which was not only crowdsd, but jammed and crowded to overflowing , the benuty and bullion were there, and to my astonishment I found some of the women quite handsome. During the day there was mass said, and the Virgin Mary was pnraded around the streets, followed by the principal men of the town, and also by (Jen. Kearney and his staff, with lighted candles in their hands. The priest at Tonie joined in the waltz, and appeared as jovial and at much disponed to participate in all the amusements as any one else.

In fact, from that* roporta, it would an|>ear ua if the whole oceau waa atrawn with wrecka, and lrngmontaof wrecka. Our accounta of tha disasters at aea cauaad by the hurricane oi the 11th, extend only to Havana and Key Weat. It viaited Charleston oa the aame day, and reached Baltimore and Philadelphia on the 13th, ao that there ia reason to anticipate accounta of further disasters along the whole coaat. How far North it travelled w# do not knew, aa the New York paperi, which would have given an account of it?had it extended there?have not yet come to hand.

It commenced on the night of the 10th inat., at about 11 P.M., and lasted until Monday morning, the 13th inst.

The scene was truly awlul Dead bodies were occasionally being dug out from under the ruins, and no one can tell how many there are remaining. As far as has been ascertained, fifty persons have lost their lives, and it is singular that ao few are dead or injured, when we remember that the air was full of boards, timber, slate, fee , and buildings falling in every direction. Stone itself could not withstand the gale, and every thing seemed to be going to destruction. Mauy persons escaped in boats, and held en to trees, expecting every moment to be washed away.
