Theia must be a terrible confusion of dotee somewhere. Capt. ! Hemic, our reader* will recollect, ia the gentleman who performed the daring fear of effecting bis escape from the Mexican* at Encarnacion, at tha time Major Gaines's c >mmnnd ws captured by Gen. Minon. [Tor. of tha Baltimore American ] ISsltillo. Feb 'JO, 1847.?Affairs hare are drawing to R point. It is well ascertained now that Santa Anna is at Incarnation. fifty miles distant, with 11,000 men and 19 piece* of nitillriy. It is my opinion that we shall have a fight before a week elapses, and no one con venture to predict what will be tha result. We shell have, when Gen. Marshull arrives from Monterey, with the Ohio Rnd Kentucky regiments, scant 6000 men, of all arms, and volunteer* at that. Our command Ja encamped at Agua Nucva, 18 miles in advance of this en the San Lais road, and is constituted a* follows :-Fourcompaniesoflst and 2d dragoons, under May and Stein; the Arkanaas Mounted Regiment under Yell; the Kentucky Mounted Kegi ment under Humphrey Marshall; one company of Teias Rangers under McCulluogh; Captain Washington's battery efeight pieces, (2d artillery;) Captain JMenuan's battery of four pieces, (3d artillery;) Capt Bragg's battery of four piece*, (31 artillery;) (wo Illinois Regiments an t two Indiana Regiments, under Brig.

Knuta Anna's army, I am.confidently informed by Mrxicons, is fully provided, and if the volunteers stand by eur artillery, we shall whip him. The Governor of the town has been officially notified of their approach, and things wear a serious aspect when past events are considered. May and two pieces of artillery are out now feeling them, and we shall probably hear his report this evening. [Correspondence of the National Intelligencer.] Nsw Orlkans, March 16, 1847. I lmve hut a few minute* for the way-mail. The city is fuil of rumors, said to be brought by vessels below, and one, which is generally credited, that Matameiat has been actually taken. I have ascertained, to my entire satisfaction, that such ia not the case; ut least that no such advice ia now in the city, as I have seen a gentleman who left there on tho 7th, end thero it nothing, and can be nothing later. He tells me it will be rather difficult task te take it He, however, further informame that a letter was received there on the 4lh from Camargo, which atates that i>ieuy cerium aavices naa seen received or the capture of Col Mergan'sfcommand, and that Gen UrreawasbetwcenMuntureyand,the pau of Ricona Ja'tvith 6000 cavalry vcho hud cut oil Gon. Taylor from retreating ou Monterey. That there was no doubt there had benn a severe battle, and the belief was that Gen. T. had abandoned SaltiUo, aud Inlleu back on the paai. Nothing, aa you will aeo, positive; but the proipecta are by no means brighter for the gallant Taylor. The public property < rid stores on the Rio Grande, at the ilrasos, Matamoros, and Camargo, it is said, amount to six or seven millions of dollats, besides immense quantities of r>t ivatn merchandise ; and for the protection of this line there are probably from fifteen to eighteen hundred men, scattered in detachments, the strongest of which does not exceed 700. 1 have no time lor comments. ft Tho Senate of this State have just unanimously passed a resolution, authorizing the Governor to raise any number of volunteers that may be called for. The House will no doubt concur. 1 have just seen Captain Hanrie, who lelt Sallillo (he thinks) r.n the 33d, and he expresses the opinion that Gee. Taylor is almost bayond a doubt out off. We hope for better things NEWS VltOM THE R.O GRANDE. [From the New Orleans Picayune, March IS ] Tite steamship Palmetto, Capt Smith, arrived on Sunday evening, from Galveston, having sailed on the 11th 1U81. Accounts lo the 7th inst. have been received from the Brs7.ni at Galveston There was still nothing later than the evening cf the 38d of Feb. from Monterey. We give below a letior we have received from Camargo by this arrival from a responsible source. Wo have a oopy of the Matamoras Flag of the Oth inst Krena this we learn that a company ot volunteers was organized in that place on the 4th inst P C. Shannon was chosen captain. I) Wolf, 1st lieutenant, and T. W Brume, 3d lieutenant. This makes the second company of volunteers in Matamoras, and there are materials leit for others. The 3d Mississippi regiment reached Matamoraa the morning of the Sth inst. They relieve the Indiana regiment, which wis to leave the Sth for Camargo. The tla( says the Mississippians are "a fine robust set oi men." Two companies of the North Carolina volunteers artived at Brazos on the Sth inst. ? Another Mexican epy was shot on the Sd inst. near Matamoraa. Ha had been arrested, and was endeavoring to eaoape from his guard when he was shot dead. A Mexican engaged in the murder of the Rogers fa* wily and other outrages, hes been arrested in Matamoras, and will be tried before the alcalde. The Americans residing in Meir evacuated the town on tbe approach of the Mexicans. Provious to leaving, they made a surrender of their goods to tha alcalde, and took a receipt therefor. Col Curtis was determined to make a strong defence at Camargo. To make an opening for tbe play of his ar tillery on tho approaches to the town, he ordered two houses to he torn down. The order was executed by setting fire to them. A strong wind arising, the flames were communicated to other buildings, and a great many consumed, principally jicaltt of no great value. The impression in Matamoroa is that Gen. Taylor had fallen hack on Monterey, but they know nothing authentic on the subject. The tenor of our previous advices leads us to a different opinion The Flag discredits the reports that the Mexicans have crossed the Rio Grande. A company of mounted riflemen from the counties of Navarro, limestone and Robertson, met at Wheelock, Robertson county, on the lath February, and organized by electing Mr. G W. Adams, of Robertson, captain; Jesses Worrell, of tbe some county, 1st lieutenant; and Win Bums, 9d lieutenant. They took their departure the next morning for Baa Antonio, te place themselves under the command of Col. Hays. This company, says the Citiiicn, mainly composed of hardy frontier men, aud nccutlnmed to the fatigues of ihe camp, will no doubt rendor officiant service in whatever position they may be placed, f rom tbo Civilian wo learn that Capt. Symptom, a famouo Gulf pilot, left Oalveaton on tne 4th instant via Brozot Santiago, for the American rquadron before Ve ra Orux. He waa aont for by the commodore, and will, it io presumed, be employed in the operation* near Vera Cruz, carrying deopatchea, disembarking troopa, and succoring vessel* in distreaa, if neceaaary. Captain S. knows the haxborand bar of Vera Cruz well, and is a capable pilot, as well as one of the moat fearleaa and energetic men alive. Camaboo, Mexico, Feb. 38, 1847. " Give the devil hi* due"?Santa Anna is playing the Jeme according to Gnnter. He gets hold of Gen. Scott's espatches, in which are nil the minutiae ot the intended i operations; he sees this lino of Oen Tayloi's in to he left weak. end at once he takes meetures to opeisto against it; aud should he lis successful, it would be " beautiful as an army with hannera"?and should he fail, all he has to do is to ahrug his shoulders, and sav " 1 tried;" or. if he can't speak that much English, say" Keir aava," * which is the same thing only differently expressed.

Fortifications were thrown around the public stores a the mouth of the river on the id, and the same was doni here on tho 3d, in consequence of rumors that a large force of Mexican cavalry had crossed the river this siui of Matamoras. This place is under martial law. Capt. G. Porter, o the 1st Artillery, has command of the post, and Captaii Churchill has charge of the artillery. The Quartet muster's men, numbering about 300, are ar med, and ari held in readinesi.

[From the New Orleans Bulletin, Maroh 13.] It would be difficult to deacribe tho intense feeling o anxiety that exists in this city, on tho subject of thi military affairs on tho Rio Grande, and parti*ularly a regards the army uuder Gen. Taylor. There has been, sinco onr publication on Saturday, ai arrival, which brings 24 hours later from the Brazis and though the accounts from the immediate seat of wa are no later, the reports assume a more definite, and, wi regret to say, a graver obaractor. We give, in auothei column, the highly interesting detail* luruished by Ur Jarvis, of the army, and which we take from the Pica yunc of Sunday, which we consider are the most definiti mat have been received We have had a conversation with a highly intelligen officer of the army, who has been attached to Gan. Twy lor's stall' ever since he entered Mexico, and wh* lef Sultillo on the 4th ultimo. He informs us that there i' no practicable pass by which Santa Anna could possibly get into Gon. Taylor's rear with artillery, and that if he attempted to attack onr armv with iufantiy alone, lie feels assured he would be repulsed, even if lie bad a greul superiority of force, as Gen. Taylor haa four batiorie* oi flying artillery, (one of them consisting of 21 poundri howitzers) with a full complement of regulars to serve aud manage them. He alto expresses a belief that though Gen Taylor might tail back from Nuova to Sal tillo, he would not retreat from the latter point without first having a battle G<m Taylor's force does not ex ceed *000 men, all of which are volunteers, except the artillery and about 130 dragoons undor Col. May. lie sides the above forae, there are 1600 men at Monterey which latter place is represented as being in an excel lent state of defence, and capable of successfully resist ing any lorco the enemy can bting against it. According to the present advices, it would appear I considerable force of the enemy had passed te Genera Taylor's! ank by Victoria, but which seems principalis to have been cavalry. Should Santa Anna have s?ut hii artillery also by that route, his means oi attack, and coa scquently hie chances of success, will have been great ly increased?there is no doubt that he has a large force wua mm, as 110 never would nave attempted oiteuiivc operation! against our army, except with a great superiority of numbers. It will be seen by Dr. Jarvia's statement, that nothing had yet been learned as to an actual battle, and of course no foun lotion for the sinister report ol Gen Taylor's heavy loss, and that the tumors on this head were confined to the cutttng elf of some trains or small detachments. Krom all we can see in the accounts that have been received, we are inclined to believe that the forces in the rear of Oen. Taylor are exclusively the troops that have advanced from Victoria, and that Santa Anna has moved up with all his army, direct to Nueva, with out attempting to aend any part of his troops into the rear of the Americans, through other difficult passes ? (Jen Taylor has probablv talien bach on Saltillo, from his advanced position at Nueva, and will give battle at the iormer place. If he succeeds in repulsing Sauts Anna in any attack the latter may make, all difficulty will cease in hit roar. As the accounts state that ammu nition was being forwarded from Monterey to Saltillo, it would appear there was no interruption te the communications between these two places, and that the enemy's lores hud only appeared on the route betwaou Monterey and ( smfirgo. This should tend to strengthen the bflict that the force in th? rear formed no part ol Santa Anna's army, as they would have been operating betwoeu Saltillo and Montereyi There is a fearful responsibility resting somewhere, for this state of thiegs, and if it is followed by the defeat or capture ol Gen. Taylor's army we should pity our worst enemy, If he had to abide the " waked wrath' of the American people. The greet end obvious oiror has been in reducing the forcu ol General Taylor, to so great an extent, and (tripping him ol all his regulai troops. Though in common with the whole community, we feel the most anxious solicitude on the occasion, we have great confidence that Gen. Taylor will make good his defence, particularly, as we bslieve it will be found to be the fact, that he hsa the whole of Santa Anna's force in his front, and that thare is nothing in his rear that can give him trouble in the wav of a direct attack upon him. It is, however, fearful odd* that he has to contend with, and whatuver may be the result, no cen sure or blatno of any kind can rest with him. [Krom the Galveston Gazette, March U.] The schr Mary It Eliziboth, Beach, lett the iirazoi on Sunday, 7th, at 4, P.

Orey, with his Company of Hangers, stationed here, to march to Cumargo forthwith for the relief of that place ; also for the same object, an express has gone to San Antonio. A letter, brought by the same conveyance, from Colonel Curtis, the commandant at Camargo, states, " That General Santa Anna was in the vicinity ol Saltillo. with a force of twenty thousand troops ; that he had sent in an order to General Taylor to surrender, or he (Santa Anna,) would cut him topiec.es. General Taylor's reply was, " Come and take me I" Also, that there are later reports which state that, o few days previous to this express leaving Camargo, one hundred wagons of provisions, on their way to Monterey, accompanied by two compauiea of cavalry, had lailen into the hands ol the Mexicans, and that Gen Urrea was atMier, with 0,(>00 Mexican cavalry.' The Colonel oxpects to be attacked at Camargo, and wishes for the different companies on the frontier to hasten to his assistance. The Colonol's letter is dated at Camargo, Kob. :M'.h, morning.

At present we are preparing for a second march into the interior, and intend making our way once more to the city of the Angels, distant from this place one hundred and twenty miles. ?,l The Californians, since 1 last wrote, have placed them selves under the command of General Klores, a Mexican officer whom we had taken prisoner with a number of ether ofllcers of Castro's army, all of whom wero placed s, on a parole of honor, and by their atrocious conduct have again taken the field, and forced into their service hundreds who, perhaps, preferred remaining quiet at ?{ their homes.
