[From the New Orleans Picayune, Dec. 33.) KKWS FHOM THK GULF SQUADRON. By the Morgan Dix, Captain Hamilton, we have received <late* from the iqua<lron at Anton Lizard* to the atternoon of Similar, the 13th in<t. The full particulars of the melancholy loia of the U.S. brig Somen will be found below. Among the passengers on board the Morgan Dlx, were Purser L. Warrington, Jr , of the Mississippi steam frigate , with liia clerk, L Hutchinson?both on their way In th? north. By thin arrival we letrn that three men, aaved from ?da of 1 he prize ichooners recently wrecked, have been ent ai priionera to Perote. Five out of lis pernont who were on board the prize brig Furnante when ihe wai wrecked, were loit It may be recollected that three veaaela went adrift at the time; the prize steamer, we believe it waa the Tabaaquina, haa never been heard of, and those onboard were doubtlea* loft. The recent intelligence from Tabaaco ta to the affect that the inhabitant! of the State are muc h diaguated with the neglect of the Supieme Government of Mexico in not aiding them. From the City of Mexico, not receiving any pepara by thia arrival, our intelligence i* meagre and unaatiauctor) An opinion prevailed in the aquudron, however, founded probably upon flying report* and rumor*, that a quotum of the new Mexican Congrela could not be got together at the time appointed for it* opening, the flth December. The Moi{(?u Dix made her pasaage from New York to Anton Lir.ardo in fourteen daya?eleven from Cape Hatteraa. When ahe auiled there were lying at Anton Lizardo the following merchant veaaela: Briga Oneco, Chinchilla and Oar net, loaded with coal, and the brig Abraaia, which had arrived io eight daj a from Pen?acola, with proviaiona and atorea tor the aquadron.

Gentlemen?I have been requeated to make a atatemtnt of the circumstances altering the melancholy loaa of the U.S. brig Somera, while maintaining the blockade alT the harbor of Vera Cruz. The writer of thia waa a witneaa of moat of the occurrences detailed, and the narration may be regarded a* every way authentic On the evenirg of the 7th inat, the Somera had takeu belter under Green Island, thera being tha usual appearance indicating a norther. K.arly in the mornirg ot the Sth a sail was reported from aloft. Cept. 8emnaes got under way to chase, and stood out some miles, until he made out tha John Adams, being on her return from Tampico. We hailed her appearance with great satisfaction, at Com. Terry had already inlormtd ut that ahe ihould relieve ut from tha blockade as aoon as aha caaa in. As the wind had already hauled to tha north, and the weather was threatening, Capt. Semmea at once run t>ack to Orten Island, intending to anchor as soon as ho :ould regain his former berth, which we had proved in the previous gales to be safe and comfortable, baaides snabling us to maintain our station upon the blockade. Oil approaching tha anchorage, another tail waa dia:overtd, apparently standing down for Vera Crua, through ihe passage between (Jreen Island and Illar.quil- 1 la Shoal, with tha intention, aa waa supposed, of running :he blockade. Apprehending that the atrange vessel night aucceed is her daaign, Capt Semmcs was induced :o change hia purpose and run by Green Island, atanding icroia tne pa wage to intercept her. making short tacks between the reela. Tha wiud waa than freshening from ho northweat, but Capt S.'mmes hoped to be able to maintain hit petition until tha auiptcioua vessel approachid, and to cut her ofl'lrom Vera Cruz. To eflect thia ob ect it was ncceasary ta press the Somen with canvsss, n order to avoid tailing to leeward upon the ree??, and lualljr to fetch Uraan Island anchorage. The Sonera was exceedingly light, having on hoard inly fourteen barrels of provisions, and about six bunlied gallons of water. Alter standing across the pas see, the vessel waa tacked and run back towards Oreeu Island, and as we approached oar berth, (,'ai??. Semtnts laid he would anchor; but aa thera was a lull at the moncut, and the weather rather soltened, he determiued to lold on a little longer, and woie?round and stood across he passage again As we neared Pajaros reaf, we tack>d and stood lor the northern point ot tha Ureen Island eef. The stiange vessel in tho meantime came down rapHly, tat showed no colors. While at thia point, ibout half paft tine o'clock A. .\1, while Capt Semmea * os standing in the lea arm chest, observing tha reef Kith his glass, the officer of the deck, Lt. Jus. L. Parker, reported the appearance of a squail. Tha brig was then >n the larboaid tack, under topaails, courses, jib and main trysail. Capt ftemmes immediately crossed to windward, and ordered the mainsail to be hauled up, 'oliowed ipou the instant by the order to brail up tbn trysail.? Hie mainsail was hauled up, but tho trysail took againat ;he lee rigging, and was in part braiied up with great lifliculty, at the seme time the helm waa put bard up.? The squall now pressing her, the order was given by the jfttcei of the deck to let go the lee maintopaeil sheet, ind on the next instant to cut away all tecks and sheets. I- mding mo would not pay on, ctptatn nrmmnt ordered tha hum to be put down, hoping to bring har to the | rind- It w?i, however, all unavailing.

Finding that there wat no chance of eaving ! tha brig, and that toe wat fatt linking, CapL Semmet ordered Mr. Clark* to ehove off with Dr. Wright and 1 teventeen man, baaidea I'urter Htcele, (who reached the ! boat by twimming ae aha waa clearing tha wreck, I ilk I )RNING, DECEMBER 31, ' lirit enquiring if there *u worn in the boat for an' ether) to poll for Oreen Uland, about half a mile dieUnt. and immediately to return if pouible, and cave more live*. This order waa at onco executed, but not uotil tome of thoie in the boat bad solicited, by name, each o/ the officer* left on the wreck to come with them. These offloer* resolutely declated that they would wait and take their chance with the brie, i'aased Midshipman Hynion, who had been partially diiahled by a bad burn received in the tiring of the Creole, waa particularly imlilured to k? into the boat. A lad bv the name of Nutter jumped eut of the boat and offered ui? place to Mr. Hynion, and a man by the name of Power* did the *ame thing. Mr. Hynion refuiin* both offer*, those men then declar- 1 ed that other* might have their place*, and that they would abide on the wreck with Mr. Hynion. Captain Semtnei, who wa* in imDaired health, waaalao entrant*/! 1 to go. but reluseu Lieutenant Parker answered a aimii Inr solicitation by (a) ing he would drown with the brie. Lieutenant Claiborne and ACi'i* Matter Ciemeen held ; the mine language. It U a remarkable circumitance that three of the officer! and all of the men who acted thus nobly are tared. When the boat shoved ofl', the gale waa blowing with great violence and a heavy aea running,so that lor aome momenta it waa a matter of doubt whether the boat would live Tuner Steele at one time proposed to leave the boat for a flth davit he aaw float by. The boat, however, reached the ialand in about twenty minute*. Jfi aoon aa tlie men were landed, Mr. Clarke, disregarding the moat atrenuoua entreatiei, reanlutely ahoved oil' again with volunteer crew, at the imminent hazard of their livea. Leaa than three minutea after the boat left the brig, Capt Semmea, finding the vetael settling under i hem, gave an order for every man to aave hiipself All simultaneously plunged into the water, and grasped the poata. gratings, spars, coops, and other floating objects at hand. Many must have gone down from the want of any support whatever : others atruggled on frail floata, to be flually drifted onfthe reefs and dashed in pieces Seme were driven to sea to be heard of no mere, and others encountered the worst fate which could be apprehended, in being devoured by (harks. Of near sixty who plunged from the wreck, only seventeen escaped. Through all this appalling scene the greatest com posure was observed by men and officers. There was no appearance of panic, no exhibition of selfithness ? Those who could not swim were paiticularly enjoined to go in the boat. A large man by the name of Seymour, the ship's cook, had got into the boat Lieutenant Parker commanded him to come out, in order to make room lor two smaller men, and he obeyed the older, but was afterwards directed to go in the boat, when it was foiind he could not swim. Capt. Semmes and Lieat' Parker were picked up by Mr. Clarke from a grating, and Jacob Hazard, yeoman, was .rescued, awimming near them. Those who survived, have told of manv in stance* of heroic- *elf-de?otion. The acting muter, Henry A. Clemien, was struggling on a imalT iteering ail boom with Qvo other*, twoot whom could not awim He found that all could not be sum>orted, and he left and (truck out alone and uusupjtorted.

There were lying at 8acrificio*, about two mile* to leeward of the wreck, H. B M. a hi pa Kndymion. and Alarm, and the brig Daring, commanded re*pectively by Capta Lanbert, Franklin and Mataon ; tbii French brig* Pylade and Mercure, Capta. Dubut and La Voyaire ; and the Hpaniih corvette Louiaa Fernanda, Captain Puente A* soon a* the accident wa* discovered, the boat* of all these vessels were simultaneously called awa>'. The crew of the Kndymion, to the number of two huulred, came aft and volunteered. There wa* the moat noble emulattona a* to which veuel should u*e the greatest expedition, and persevere in the most strenuous ewrti?w. The violenoe of the gale waa such at that time that none of the boata ooald pull against it, and it waa with the deepest regret that Capt Lambert and ethers in authority felt it to be their duty te make signals recalling their boats. An hour or two afterwards, when there waa a alight abate ^ ment of we gale, they again put lorth at toe peril ol their lives, and succceded id saving fourteon person* and bringing liotn Oreen Island those who bad landed there. The flist lieutenant of the Endrmion, Mr. Tarlaton, reicued the first lieutenant of the Sorners from Pajaros reef, which he succeeded by a miracle in reaching safely, but where his situation was most critical. The most gallant and well directed efforts were made by the offl cers and crew in the boat of the Mercure. She rescued ten raoa at sea to leeward, on a spar. One hardly knows wlitoh to admire most, the forethought or the daring of this noble adventure. The risk was incalculable. Fire boats, representing each of the foreign vessels, reached the island, and took off twenty-three persons to their respective vessels, where they were received with a de gree of kindness and delicate consideration which I cannot adequately describe, but which none of us will ever forget. They gave us refreshments and supplied us with clothes. 1 regret that I do not know the names of all the generons and brave .Iticeis who were in charge of tlie boats of the different veaaels. I canuot, however, forbear mentioning such as [have learned,viz :-Lieutenant Weod and the gunner of the Kndymion, and Mid shioman Saliz, of the Pylade. The strange vessel proved to be the Abrasla, bound for the squadron at Anton liznrdo. She passed very near the Homers, but the catastrophe waa so sudden that aha tailed to discover it. As soon as the boat landed at Oreen Island, Dr. Wright took the celors and had them koiited in the most conspicuous place, in order to attraot the at tention of the Abrasia, so that the accident might be re ported to the squadron. We were, however, to dty, the bearers of our own aad story. The Mexicans saw the accident from the mole, and cheered and exulted for a long tijie. The brig had been for a longtime engaged in the blockade, and had done mor to Interrupt the commerce of the port than almost all the other vessels together. Within the last fortnight both town and ca'tle had been kept in a state of constant alarm by the burning of the Creole, and otier aemonitrauoni, wlicd 1 preiume you win near 01 in due time. I have no doubt the Mexican* were relieved when they aaw her link into the ocean. I append a lilt of the loit and raved ?39 men lived?37 loit. One officer, Mr. llogera, pined midshipman, and one man, John O. Kox, were captured bjr the Mexican* two day before, while reconnoitring an important point, in com pany with Dr. Wright, the latter escaping to witneaj the catastrophe of the brig.

On coming oat of Anton Lixardo, the Morgan Dix I waa boarded by a boat from the English frigate Endymion. The officer in command of the boat, after placing I a package of letter* for England in the hands of Capt. I Hamilton, informed him that it had been ascertained that i eight more of the crew of the Somen had been picked I up by the Mexicans, after being in tho water no leia than thirty hour* on a hen coop. Another party, numbering also eight, ia aaid to have reached the shore in the same manner, one of whom died after landing, from exhaustion. What i>umber of these two parties?whether both or only the former?are now in the hands of the Mexicans, we cannot distinctly understand. It will doubtleee increase the suspense of friends, vet must mitigate the gloom which tnis most melancholy calamity creates, te ascertain that the loss of life was not so great as was at first heard, and we sh 11 now look with anxiety for further particulars in relation to the survivors. [Correspondence of the N. O. Tropic.] Okk Visa Ciu-z, Dec. i>, 1846 ?One of the mast af dieting calamities of the war occurred yesterday, in the loss of the brig Somers, which foundered near (ireen Island, with the loss of Passed Midshipmen 11. A. Clemsen, and John Ringgold Hynson, and more than thirty of her crew. That any esoaped is due the humane exertions and intrepidity of the British, French and Hpaniah officers of the squadrons lying at Sacrificios, who wit. nessod the sinking of the brig: and, notwithstanding the :aarful height ef the tea, and toe rage of the gale, sent several boats each from the principal ships to tha rescue. Twenty boats are said to have been out. J It was honorable to human nature to attempt such an undertaking, and their success must be regained as a reward for their intrepidity, directly conferred by an approving Providence. 1 hear the names of Lieut. Tarleton, of H. B. M. frigate Rndymion, and Lieut. Wood, mentioned in terms of tho highest praise. But all acted bravely and nobly, with but little distinction, individually. Hynson was an ornament to the Navy of the brightest 11 character. He had no superiors?except accidentally of 0 rank in hi* profeuiou. ill* enulla and inferiot* all loved " him. ? A ipecimw of hia gallantry haa bean shown in liia par ticipaiion in the recent cutting out, or burning, of that c veaael under the caatle, and 1 am told he could now have 0 aaved hia life, but for hia generoaity in giving up hia apar * to a aailor whom he considered weaker than bimaelf.

[From the New Orleans Picayune, L)ec. 32 ] The successful exploit of burning the Creole, a fastsailing vessel supposed to he .flttinr out as a privateer, and moored alongside the very walla of the cattle of San Juan d'l'lloa, emboldened the officers of the Somen to < undertake fresh enterprUei. One of these wui a reronnainanri of Vera Crux itself, with the intention of ' ascertaining the locality of the magazine, and the feasibility of an attempt to blow it up,an* on this hazardous undertaking a little party, which Midshipman Roger* and Surgeon Wright volunteered t? conduct, was made up. (For two nighta, favored by the darkness, the party pursued its riftnnaitianre; on the third, after having obtained a most complete and satisfactory knowledge of , the localities about Vera Crux, and ascertaining that , their object could be accomplished, the little band waa j surrounded by a small body of Mexican lancers while returning to the boat. Kogers and the only sailor along j with him were at once taken prisoners?Mr. Wright, by | presenting a pistol at the horaemen, ?ueceeded in keep tag them oft' until ha ranched hii men at the ihore, when they at once (bored off and succeeded in gaining the ressel in safety.

Of the dlapoeitlon made of young Roger* wa hare no definite information.

The cemetery of Matamoraa ia situated in the western auburb of the town. It ia lurronndod by o high wall, and contains a few tombs of superior style and material. These wore manufactured In our own country, and their Spanish inscriptions declare them the resting places of members of distinguished and wealthy families of Northern Mexico To witness the manifestation of respect for the memoiy of their dead, among even the loweat and most ignorant of these people, ia truly delightful.
