TBI raws PBOK THE ElO GRANDE. [Froai the New Orleans Picayune, March IS.] i, In peinl of fact, nothing In an authentic shape he * reached the eity, since oar last publication, from Ooi i Jay tor's army. The arrivals yesterday brought nothin) bat amplifications of rumors hitherto afloat. There wai a report in circulation, brought by a passenger, that i letter was received in Matamoras from an oAcer of thi army at Camargo to the effect that Urrea had got be tween Monterey and the Rinconada with six thouaam cavalry, thus cutting off General Taylor's retreat upei that pass. How this intormation was conveyed to Ca margo wo were unable to learn. The same authority reports more positively the loss of Col. Morgan's detach { raent of Ohio volanteers?but perhaps upon no bettei t foundation than what hu been before known. Wo migh wiuioii war ooiumn witn umm romori, many o them exaggeration* of previous accounts; but unti ' omething definite ia hoard from Monterey, or rathoi ; from Oonoral Tar lor'a camp, It would add little to tbi knowledge already in poaaeaalon of the public. Aa goo< an idea or the prevailing feeling in Camargo can be ob talned from the regieter of Colonel Cuius, in anothei part ot our paper, aa from all the report* that han reached tu. That document would lead ua to aup poae the valley of the Rio Grande to be in grea danger, and the officer who penned it to be verj ' sensible of the fact If one half of the fifty thouaan men Colonel Curtia require* of the Proaident are wante I immediately, we fear there will be wailing in the* State* before the May apple bloaaoma. But aa we befor ' remarked, we count nothing aa adding to what haa beei known for several day* that doe* not come direct free ( Gen. Taylor's camp. The most ominous anticipation we entertain respecting the safety of the American ar ' my, ara derived trom Captain Henrie, who thinks that I 1 a battle has been fought by Santa Anna in force, th ? chances are many to on* that he has proved victorieui Capt. H. is th* same gentleman whose gallant escap t from the Mexican troop which oaptured Majors Gain* and Borland, and Captain Clay and their companies, ha exoited so much enthusiasm ui th* oountry. He is not man to be alarmed at trifles, and his opinion somewha 1 dashed th* confidence w* entertained in th* result of th reputed collision. These are, however, but opinionaIn this connection we may add that Captain IJenrle di< i not leave Saltillo on the 3Sd of last month, aa has beat said. He left Gen. Taylor befor* that time, and bring , nothing to confirm or contradict the aocounts of battle - which have been ao rife of late. W* may say. further ; that the great length of time that has elapsed since Gen r Taylor was last heard from, is not a favorable sign ii , these times, when so much is left to seeoulation and con jectur*. In a short season wo will know all, and untU " then wo counsel our readers to have patience.

The Governor doe* not recognise thi ' power of Col Curtis to make a requisition, nor doe* hi ' consider th* colonel as intending to exercise thepowe B making a requisition. It is doubtful even if Gen. Taylo has the legal power of making a requisition since the ac of Congress was passed raising additional foroes fo service in Mexio*.

TAYLOR, i (Continutd) HcAaquAaTBa* Abut or Occuhtion,) Camp near Monterey, Nov. 13,1M7. I Sim Thm communication of,the Hoc re tar v of War. of | October 39, with ita enclosures, by the handa of Major MoLene, waa received thia morning. You will have aeea by my order* end my despatch of the 9th, whet meaaurea have been taken to conclude the armlatice and to occupy Saltillo. Being adviaed by apecial express from Matamoraa of Major McLane'a approach, I had poatponed my intended departure thia day for Saltillo until hia arrival. Aa I deem it atill important to occupy that poaition, for reaaona to be explained below, I ah all march thither to-morrow, according to my first inflation. On my return?aay by the 30th instant -i shell probably be able to inform the department more fully on certain important points connected with our operations -. but I now avail myself of the return of Major McLane to Washington, to state briefly my views on some of the topics embraced in the Secretary's communication. Without active operations towards San Luis Potosi from this quarter, I still deem the occupation of Saltillo important, for three reasons:? First Aa a necessary outpost of the main force at Monterey, covering, aa it does, the important defile which leads from the low country to the table land, and also the route to Monclova. Secondly. Aa controlling a region from which we may expect considerable supplies of breadatulfa and cattle, vizthe fertile country around Parras-, and thirdly, as the capital of Coahuila, which renders it very important | in a political point of view I have already represented to the department the difficulties to be encountered in e forward movement upon San Luis, and the amount of force which would be necessary to insure success. Those reasons only apply to the country beyond Saltillo. I consider the occupation of that point aa a necesserv complement to our operations, and to the policy of holding a defensive line, as the 8ierra Madre, and trust the department will concur with me in this view. As already reported, Brig. Gen. Wool is now at Monclova, having found no practicable route to Chihuahua, save the well known but very circuitous one by Parras I fully agree with the department that no commensurate benefit is likely to result from the march on Chihuahua I lien, Wool* column, and mail accordingly direct him to raapand hia movementjin that direction. The occupation of Saitillo iniforce render* it atill leaa neceaaary that Chihuahua ahould be occupied. I cannot yet determine pacifically what diapoaition to make of Gen. Wool'a column. Meanwhile I hare directed him to remain in hia preaent poaition until further ordera In regard to the expedition againat Vera Crui, after a good deal of reflection upon the aubject, I feel bound to exprea* my conviction that 4,000 men will be a force quite toe email for the purpoee contemplated. In my deapateh of October lftth, I atated aft,000 troopa, of which 10 000 to he regular*, aa the leaet force that ahould make a daacenl in that quarter, with the view of marching on the capital. I'now conaider that aimply to iuveat and take Vera Cruz, and of courie hold the poaition. we ahould have 10 000 troopa, of which 4,000, if poaaible, aheuld be regular*. It U quite probable that a amaller force, even 4 000. might ellect a landing and carry the town; but oould they inatain themaelvea, until the caatle of S Juan de Ulue ahould be reduced by famine? The country lying between Vera Cruz and the city of Mexico ia popuiotu.and at lea at one portion, (FuebU,) underttood to be very loyal Would not a force be brought againit ua before the caatle could be reduced, axfflciently atrong to endanger ouriafety. cut off aa we ahould be from *uccot f When to theae conaideraticua, we add the uncertainty of weather during the winter aeaaon, rendering our communication* with the fleet liable to interruption, I think it will be aeon that the force ahould be large enough, net only to land and inveat the town, but alio to hold itielf aecure againat any attack from the interior; and for auch purpoae.il conaider 10,000 men quite aa mall a force aa ahould be ventured. A force of 10,00# men cannot be apared from the occupation of the line of the Sierra Madra; 4,000 may be diverted from that object; and if to theae, 0 000 freah troopa from the United State* were ad ted at the proper time, the expedition might be undertaken with a pr.uniae of auoceaa. I propoae, therefore, to proceed with the preparation for a movement on Tampico, and after acoompliahing everything that ia to be done in that quarter, I will It (ha rlmnarfvnmnt annrflva. half!

It sea ma the part of prudence, therefore, to take a sufficient | forea to meet any contingency that may ariae. Being pressed for time, I have given my views brie fly, and perhaps somewhat crudely, on the moat Important points presented in the despatch of the Secretary. There are other topics whioh will probably claim my attention, but which must be now passed over. 1 would only suggest that lathe eventef aa expedition to Vera Crus, the j ?r LD.

Nov. 36, 1948.J Sir : I have te report that 1 received ofltaial inform*ion laat evening of the occupation of Tampico on the 4th lnatant, by the naval forcea under Commodore Pery. I had before learned from the Mexican newapepera hat the garriaon had been withdrawn on the 37th of Ocober. On the reaoiaition of Commodore Perry, who brought ha drat intelligence of the occupation to Braxea Santia;o, Mgior General Patteraon promptly gave ordera for -ieut. Col. Belton'i battalion (8 companie*) to proceed to nd garriaon Tampico : and alao took meaaurea to ahip hither a aufficient ?upply of heavy ordnance and provtion*. There ordera have been fully approved by me, nd I have directed a regiment of volunteera to be added a the garriaon, the whole to be under the command of a rigadiergeneral, probably Brigadier General Shield*, rho ia new here, and wili eoon report te Major General attereon. I propoee atill to throw forward a foroa aa far aa Vic ?ria, with the view ol examining the country, and per' icularly the pane* which lead from Linarea and other ointa toward* the interior.

TAYLOR, Major General U 8. A , commanding, fbe Adjutant Ukrkbal of the Atmy, Washington,D C. liaadhvaatkas, Armt or Oct-uraviow, ) Camp near Monterey, Dec. 8,1848. j Sir : Aa I expect to march in a lew daya for Victoria, consider the present a proper occasion to explain somewhat in detail the dispositions which have been made, ind which are contemplated, for the occupation and deeDr.n of this frontier. With this viow I enclose a sketch, ixhibiting the line from Tarns to Tampico. and showing low a portion of that lice ia naturally marked by the :hsin of the "Sierra Madre." It will hn seen at ocae, that San Luis Totosi is a posi:ion almost equally distant from the pointa of thla line. This would give a force at Sun Luis a great no vantage >ver us, were it nut for the nature of the country and he communications; the region between San Luis and ho mountains being scantily supplied with water and .ubkistence, aud the road by Saltillo and Montaray baing hn only practicable route tor artillery across the monnaina. Without artillery the Mexican troops ara not at ill formidable, and I think have but little confidence In hemsnlves. I therefore conaider the positions of Ssdtillo ind Terras ss of prime impoitance. With an intarmaliate post at Pulos, and the means by a good road of rn>idly uniting if necessary, I deem the colusnns of Brigatier Generals Wool and Worth quita equal ta hold that tank of the line I shall, however, reinforce the lattar Jeneral, particularly in cavalry, and ahall establish a -eserve at this place to support the advanced positions, ihould the movements of the enemy require it. Brigadier General Wool is understood to be now at Parras with his column?say -J400 strong, with six guns. Brigadier General Worth has his head quarters at SaltU 10 uis commauu coi.shook ui uwiiiuiu i*vu|jw, ?|m* tight gum. I propose to reinforce Lin by two regiments ol volunteer foot, and a pottion of the Kentucky cavalry. Lieutenant. Kearny'? company 11 all the regular cavalry force 1 can assign to him at preaent. At Monterey will be the nead quarters of Major Geneial Butler, commanoing the reserve. Two companies ot artillery, and one of the weak infantry battalions (4th) will composo the garrison ol the place The troope of General Butler's proper division (Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky) will be at this point, and in echelon on the route henoe to Camargo and the mouth of the Rio Grande, except those which may be ordered to reinforce General Worth, as ebovo indicated. Tampico is now garrisoned by eight strong companies of artillery, and the Alabama regiment ol volunteers, say 1 000 effectives. 1 consider this force quite sufficient to hold the place, controlling, as we do, the harbor.? Between Tumpico and this place, Victoria offers itself at once as an important position to be held by us. It is the capital of the 8tate of Tamaulipas; it is situated at the debouche of a pass through the mountains, and it lies a port, Hoto la Marina, whore we shall piobeMy be able to establish a convenient depot. It also threatens the flank of the Mexican army, should it adrnnce from Han Luis. These considerations attracted my attention to Victoria, before the surrender of Tumpico; but I now ileeaa it more then ever important; for I have reason to believe that a corps of observation ii in that quarter under the orders of Ganeral Urroa, having il* hsedqnsrters perhaps at Tula, ami sending forward advanced parties as far aa Victoria. 1 have therefore changed nothing In my original purpose of moving en Victoria, believing it important to occupy that point, and knowing that any surplus force would then ba in position fort ba ulterior views af the government, shonld any further operations on the gulf ooast be ordered. Major General Patterson has accordingly been instructed to march from Ma<amorae on Victoria, with three regiments of voluntcsrs from bis division, one being the Tennessee horse. I propose to move from this point, say by the 19th instant, with the regular troope now here under Brigadier General Twiggs (earapt those to be left in garrison as above,) and the regiments 01 uecfsrn ranerion ? ajviPiun uau?i wun? di?r (Jvneral Quitman At Mont* no oreloe, f\* mile* from this, I (hall * fleet Junction with Riley, who ia bow there, anil incorporate with the column the -Jd Tenneaaee regiment, tinder orders for the! place.
