The Cutter Ewing, Moore, arrived at New Orleans on the 28th ult., front Vera Cruz, with lour (lays inter intelligence, that vessel having sailed on the 17th. The news of Taylor's victory at Rtinetm Vista was received ut Vera Cruz on the ltith, and created great rejoicing among the army. Owing to the rough weather, only a portion of the heavy artillery intended for the attack, had been landed when the Ewing left. Gen. Scott had given the foreign residents notice to leave the town, and they had generally gone on board the foreign vessels of war off the port. Many citizens of Vera Cruz were in iwor of an early capitulation, but the military vidMfctly opposed any movement of the kind. It wis reported by the foreign residents, that several citizens had been shot for proposing the surrender, although few doubt but that our troops will carry the place in u short time. The firing from the city and castle was continued, but has, so far, been harmless. Col. Harney arrived at Vera Cruz on the 16th, with his dragoons, after having been cast away near Anton Lizurdo. The report of the re-capture of Midshipman Kogcrs was premature, he being, unfortunately, still a prisoner. Nothing had transpired of any importance,subsequent to the previous accounts.

Taylor's camp later than that brought by Lieut. Crittenden ; but from the best information that could be obtained, it appears that Santa Anna had retired to Matehuala,where lie was endeavoring to collect forces. An officer arrived at the Brazos from Matumoras just as the Telegraph was ousting off, with information that General Taylor had arrived at Cerralvo with a thousand cavalry, in pursuit ofUrrea, who tied in the direction of Victoria as soon as he heard of Taylor's approach. The communication between Camargo acid Monterey was re-established. The Massachusetts regiment was ordered to garrison Mutainoras. iikn. serin's division.

The line circumventing the city, when completed, will run along a chain of saiul hills about three miles from the city ranging from 3(M( to I .100 feet high, and completely over- a( looking and commanding the town nnd fortifications, but the heavy guns from the castle can be brought to bear upon the right wing of the line, where no doubt thuquartors will be very hot. As soon as (leu. Worth bail occupied his ground.dcn. Patterson's division took up its march, with Hen. Pillow's brigade in advance, for the purpose of forming on the left of (Jen. Worth. The advance, however, did not proceed over a mile before they became engaged with the enemy in a thick otuster ot chaparral. A rapid lire immediately ensued, which lasted about twenty minutes. The Mexicans retreated, and no loss on either side, that I could ascertain positively; though I have heard it repeatedly this evening that flvu dead Mcxieans had been round. (len.

P. M., when he again came in contact with the eneuiy. who were in ambuscade. The firing was so heavy, and appeared so to increase, that (len.

A body of Mexican* vie shortly afterward* discovered tlirougli n glass. on the left flank of (Jen. Pillow's command. at a house known a* a magazine, and I expect it has been occupied a* Much. A six-pounder wan brought to bear on it frum one of the height* in our possession, which caused them to leave without ceremony. Toward* sundown (Jen. Pillow's brigade, very unexpectedly. succeeded in renching one of the highest point* in the rear of the city, and plunting the Stars and Stripes," which they greeted as one of the Tennesscans said?with three of the biggest kind of cheers. " The batteries from town and Castle kept throwing 13 inch shells and 44 pound round shot, at the entire line until dark. One of them exploded immediately In front of (Jen. Worth and staff, ami a portion of it passed through Capt. lllanchard's company, but fortunately without injuring any one. Gun. Quitman's brigade now moved forward and encamped ou the right of Gen. Pillow. CtMr or the Bihieqiwo Ahmv, ) 3 miles in rear of city, March 11, 1847. $ This morning, shortly after daylight, the batteries from the castle and the town opened on our lines, and continued with short intervals throughout the day. 1 sincerely regret to announce that among our losses today, is the death of Cupt. William Alburtis. of the dd infantry. llis head was shot off with a '44-pound shot from the city, while uarclilug with the regiment to join Gen. Twiggs, at the north end. Capt. Alburtis was a printer, and former editor of the Virginia Republican, at Mnrtlusburg. Va. There was also killed by the cannonade private Cunningham, of Company A. Mounted llilles, aud a drummer boy of Company B, 4d Artillery, bad liis arm shot off. About 7 o'clock this morning (Jen Quitman's brigade was ordered to relieve (Jen. Pillow from the position he had occupied during the night, in order that his troopa might get their breakfast, and nrocuro water to Uut , ring the Jay. The Mexicans saw our party leaving tinheight, but Hid nfft see the other coming up with their cavalry. expecting, no doubt, to steal upon their rear, but they were very much mistaken, Gen. Quitmun advanced to the top of tho hill, and a rapid tiro ut long shots to kept up for about an hour. Capt. Davie, of the Georgia Regiment, with '20 riflemen, were aeiit at skirmishers. to incline round under the hill und engage them at close quarters. Ah soon as they observed rapt. Davis about '200 advanced on him, but with his small force he held them in check until Col. Jackson, with the balunce of three companies, and Col. Dickenson, with his regiment, came to his assistance, when the enemy were compelled to retreat under tho cover of the guns of the town, with the loss of several dead and some wounded. Our loss in this uflnir this morning, is seven slightly wounded, vis :? Mouth Carolina Regiment?Lieut. Col. Dickenson.Win. II. Ballad. Lewis (.'oka. and J K. Phillips. Georgia Regiment ?B. K. MrDonougb, (son of the exUoveruor.) John (J. Kubank*. Thos. G. Scott, (of Mississippi.) Capt. Davis, who commanded the skirmishing party of riflemen, was very highly complimented for his gallant conduct by Col. Dickeuson, Gen Quitman and Gen .Patterson. The column of Gen. Twiggs moved up this morning, with the Mounted Rifles in advance, at9 o'clock, to take position on the left of the line The undertaking was a most arduous one.but with Gen Twiggs there is "no such 1 word as fail.'' Win n his cannon eould not be hauled by 1 horses they were pnlle 1 and lifted by his men, and they 1 were taken up and over saiul ridges thai I should think it utt"rly impossible and beyond the physical : trengtb of men to nuruiouut. The advance of this otuinn arrived at their destination on the sea shore above the town | about '2 o'clock, and the rear closed up at sundown i This entirely, now, circumvents the place, und the en- ( tire liue investing occupies a space of ground about 8 miles ill length. As tile troops lay stretehed along the hills and valleys, with the Mars and stripes dotted here and there, fluttering in the breeze, they present to the view u majestic and sublime appearance. The enemy are now completely within our grasp, and whether they eau rend asunder the chains that bind them to the confined limits of the walls of the city and Castle, remains to be seen. Gen. Worth occupies I lie right. Gen. Twiggs the left, and Ueti. Patterson the centre. If either of these ofltcers can be moved from their positions one foot liy any force that can be brought against them. I am very much mistaken. Having our position, in the course of two or three days tlie mortars and heavy cannon will be plnutcd on the heights, when the enemy will have an opportunity of witnessing the effects of our shot upon their city I was informed at a late hour last night that Col. Persifor K. Smith. wit.li his Rifles, has had a very pretty tight with a force of about 800 from the city, and compelled them to retire in quick time, witli a loss of about 'Jo killed und severnl wounded, nud sustaining a loss of two or three privates killed und wounded. I liuve made diligent inquiry Into the health of the army to-day. and the surgeons state that they never knew the army to be in better health und condition, and no evidence of any tiling like romilo.
