IM. 1 he schooner Wm. C. Preston arrived at New Orleans on the 30ih instant ftora Brazos, whence she sailed on the afternoon of the 10.h. Tho news from Oen. Taylor, brought by this vessel, the New Orleans Dtlta says, is most cheering. The intense anxiety created among our citizens by the many alarming rumors which have circu- ' lated through the country, has relieved itself in one universal expression of joy and proud confidence in the superiority of American valor. ' Although these reports are still vague and indefinite, enough can be gathered from them to give every assurance that Oen. Taylor has whipped Santa Anna. We gather from Capt Brown, who came pas. senger on the Wm. C. Preston, the following par. ticulars of the reports most generally received at the Brazos General Taylor was attacked by Santa Anna at Agua Nueva, and after a sharp battle, fell back in good order to the vicinity of the city of S&liillo. Iiere he was again at'aekcd by Santa Anna, and a sharp engagement ensued, in which General Taylor was victorious, continuing his retreat n good order. General Taylor fell back Monterey, where he arrived in safety, and ttrenched himself. Finding, however, that Sar * Anna would not attack him, Gen. Taylor ssd cd out, and gave him I battle. I A long and severe conflict ensued, which terminated in the total defeat of Santa Anna, with a very heavy loss, i The loss is reported to bo between lour and 1 five thousand. This may be an exaggeration; ' but when it is consideied that General ; Taylor had twenty pieces of flying artillery t j ' > *1' - I a^ivumwij umuoiou ttiiv* iuauaj|uu, wo vruiuro me I opinion that the Mex can loss has been very hea' vy. Capt. Brown states that all tbo points en the Rio Grande are in hourly apprehension pf being attacked by the Mexicans At Camargo,especially* tue number of Mexicans hanging about the outskirts of the town, had ci sated considerable anxi ety and vigilance among our troops. Capt. Hicks, who commands tho steamboat i Warren, in tho government employ on the R o Grande, also came passenger in the Wm. C. Preston, and gives the following corrobora tive information. Cap li. brings intelligence from Camargo to the 5th instant, at which place information had feaon received from a Mexican who had just arrived from the interior, ! that a collision had taken place at Buena Vista, j Saltillo and Monterey, between the forces of .Santa j Anna, numbering some 28,000, and those of Gen Taylor. The oonftict was stubborn and sanguinary on both sides, the enemy suffering immeasurably ; but General Taylor finding himself too hotly pressed on ell sides, by a force greatly out" numboring his, lie retired before the enemy in good order, and made^ good his retreat to Monterey, spiking six pieces ol otdaance, and leaving at Saltillo some 30,000 rations, which have fallen into the enemy's hands The different engagements are sa.d to have ] occupied a space of throe days. The enomy followed clos-ly upon General Taylor's retreat until he arrived at Monterey, ' where the battle was renewed, and our forces gaining a decided advantage over the er.erny, forcing him to precipitately retire, when General Taylor, with a battery of flying anil- j lery, and a squadron of dragoons pressed ' them warm'y home, creating suoli immense kavco in their routed eolnrnns, that the slain arc represented to have been ridden over, in piles three deep. The enemy was pursued lor eighteen miles on the Saltillo road, havinj suffered ia all the engagements to the amount of3000 killed, wounded, and missing. Gen. Taylor's loss is said to be 1,000 At tho last advices Santa Anna is said to have been endeavoring to rally his forces for another desperate onslaught, while Gen. Urrea had fallen in General Taylor's rear, near Passa Victoria, with 8000 cavalry, and an irregular forte of Ranchoros, for the purpose of i iin, eding reinforcements and cutting oil all com- ' iininication between Monterey and Cainnrvo. (fen. Taylor is confident that lie can maintain I his position until adequate assistance may arrive. | [From tho Now Orleans Bulletin, March 30 ) The schooner William C.

Taylor had been attacked at Ague Nt.ava, and had rtpulsed the enemy and made good hia retreat to Saltillo; that there the anemy again pounced upon him. and were again repulsed. but Oen Taylor ; deemed it adviaible to retire from the town, and took position three milea this aide, aending woid to Marahall at Rinconaria, that he could bold bia own until Marshall's farce cama up The enemy, it is said, made such a ?udden move from San Luis, by suck a short and difficult route, that they could r ot bring their artillery.

Taylor Ua* bed a severe fight, there can be no doubt; the fact of not hearing from htm only tend* to confirm thia impression [From the Mew Orleans Times, March 31 ] The schooner W. C. Freftou, arrived last evening from the Brazos St. Jtgo, and the city, a* i* ouitotnury on every arrival from that quarter, was at once fiilod | with rumor* ot advance* and retreat*, battles and \ictorie* There was. whan the schooner sailed, a report at the Brazos, which is said to have como from Camsrgo, that Oeuhral Taylor and inta Anna had either fought three battles, or one battle of three dnjs, either at SaltiUo or Monterey, or at both, about the beginning of the inont'u, and that Santa Anna had been defeated wi'h the loss of 3 000 mm, while the American loss is put down at eleven hundred. Thia story is altogether improbable in its account of the losa. The Mex'.can army i< not composed of lbs material* which would stand until one-forth of its number was cut to pieces, or if it did, the American army reducsd by the los* of more thin a fifth of i's force, would have been in no condition to cluitn a victory over such an enemy, still so superior in number* An engagement ha* doubtless taken place, and every indication lead* us to believe that Gen. Tavlor and in* army have had the advantage, but beyond thia ell ia vagn conjecture or idle i umor The first reliable news will be received from Oen.Toylor himself, who, if any thing serious has occurred, will find means of acquaint, icg government with the fact, in the shortest possible tiuie. Until then, he that believe* the least will bo the nearest right. [From the New Orleans Picayune, March 31 ] There were a thousand and one rumor* put in circulation as soon as th* W. C. Preston was reported?some of them to the effect that Den. Taylor had had three daya' hard fighting,during which he fell hack upon Monterey, where he repulsed the Mexican! with terrible slaughter. These are evidently modifications ol the news received here eome time ago, but the impression at the Broxos and along the lino of the Kio Grande was stronger than before that a sanguinary onsUnuht had taken place somewhere between Monterey and Agua Nuuva. We are constrained to any that nothing has been received upon which to baso en opinion how the battle went. The current reperte lead us to infer the triumph el Oen Taylor : but farther than thia nothing can be positively asserted. Something has been done, but what, where and when, are yet matters ol painful uncertainty. Thsre must hs some truth in all that has been said, but how much must be left to the hopes and fear* of the puhlio to guesi. [From the N. O.
