We heard, laat night that the ship Louisville, with Colonel Duncan's battery *on board, had Rone ashore at Anton Lixardo, nine miles below, and that the masts had been cut nway. Two or three hundred soldiers, and a party of seamen, were sent down, late in the evening, to the assistance ancl protection of those on hoard. We have not yet heard from thorn. A large mortar in one of the town forts opened on our line lost evening, and threw shells probably thirteen inch, over a portion of (Jen. Worth's Division, doing no damnge. but showing us that we were within their range. The same place has opened again, and shells are bursting this morning in our line. Tho norther has prevented the landing of our mortars and heavy guns, and we have, therefore, been unable to effect any thing further than to approach gradually, and take positions nearer the wnlls. Our men are constantly picking up stray Mexicans, horses, mules nud donkeys, and the latter are to be seen in every direction, carrying burdens of provisions, or tugging under couples of Jack tars, who mount them and navigate the beach and sund hills.

THE ATTACK O.N VERA C'Rl'Z. [Kroui the New Orleans Times, March '19. J It appear* that Lieut. Chaddock, of the Kwing, was exceedingly anxious to remain to witueas the fall of Vera Crux, and the triumph of our arms-to be in at the death, in fox-hunting parlance - but he was told by (?en Scott, as we heur. that he would have time to go to New Orleans and roturn thither, before that event happened. Hence, we conclude thut the siege will last some short time longer than waa at first supposed. INCIDENTS OK THE WAR. Rax /os S?STin;n, March 21.1817. Col.

Three hundred paek-mule* arc greatly needed to relieve the troop* in taking subsistence, alone, along the line of ' investment of more than live miles, as. at present, our I only depot is south of the city. On the cessation of the present raging norther, whieh almost slides the troop* with sand?sweeping awny hill* and creating new. I hope I to establish a second depot north of the city, which will partially relieve the left wing of the army. In extending the line of investment around the city, the troops, for three days, have performed the heaviest I labors in getting over the hill* mid cutting through the intervening forests?nil under the dietant lire of the eity and rattle?nnd in the midst of ninny sharp skirmishes with the enemy. In these operations we have lout lu killed nml wounded Mevernl rtdunhle officers and men. Among the killed. I have to report Brevet, ('apt. Alburtis. of the United States id infantry, much distinguished in tlie Florida war. und a most excellent officer, lie fell on the 11th instant; and Lieutenant Colonel Dickinson, of the South Carolina regiment, was badly wounded, in n skirmish the day before. Two privates have been killed in tltcsc operations, and fotir or Ave wouuded. As yet. I have not lieon able to obtain their names. As soon as the subsistence of the troops can bo assured. and their posit ions are well established. I shall, by an organized movement, cause each brigade of regulars nnd volunteers to send detachments, witli supports, to clear its front, including sub-bourgs. of the enemy's parties. so ns to oblige them to confine themselves within the walls of the city. I have heretofore reported that but two-sevenths of the siege truiu and ammunition hail reached me. The remainder is yet unheard of. We shall commence lauding the heavy metul ns soon as the storm subsides, and hope that the live-sevenths may be up in time. The city being invested, would, no doubt, early surrender. but for the fear that, if occupied by us. it would ! immediately be flrod upon by the castle. I am not altogether without hope of finding the means of eoniing to somo compromise with the city on this subject. Ho far. the principal skirmishing has falleu to tile tot of Brigadier Generals I'illow's und Quit man's brigades. Both old and new volunteer regiments have conducted themselves admirably. Indeed, the whole urmy is full of zeal and confidence, nnd cannot fail to acquire distinction in the impending operations. To Commodore Conner, the officers and sailors of his squadron, the army is indebted for great and unceasing assistance, promptly und cheerfully rendered. Their cooperation is the constant tlicnic of our gratitude and admiration.

The scale of dutie*. and the regulations for their collection as military contributions exacted frnin the enemy, rccnminedded by the Secretary of the Treasury in this report, have I approved by inc. i You will, after consulting with the Secretary of War, so a* to secure concert of action between the War aII(I Navy Department*, issue the necessary orders to carry the measure proposed into immediate effect. JA.MKS K POI.K. WamIivotox, March 31, 1H17. War T)?:r artmkxt, Washington, April 3, 1846. Sir !?I herewith enclose to you a copy of the President's letter to the Secretary of tile Treasury, and the report, the proposed scale of duties and the regulations from the Treasury department, prepared pursuant to llis directions. The rates of assessment upon the tonuage of vessels, and upon articles of merchandise which may be received into Mexican ports while in possession of our forces, have Men approved by him. aud lie lias directed, as you will perceive by his letter of the 31st of March, (a copy of which is herewith sent.) that the necessary orders should In- Issued from this department to collect the several sums proposed as military contributions to be drawn from tin- enemy as the consumers of the merchandise udmittcd into those ports. You are hereby directed to take the necessary measures, so far as tile agency of the officers of tliearinyls required, to carry the orders of the President into effect. His objects and views in resorting to this kind of coutribntion, are sufficiently explained in the accompanying papers. The enforcement of bis orders is necessarily committed to the naval and land forces now operating in the enemy's country. I also transmit to you a copy of a letter from the Secretary of the Navy of this date, prepared by the direction of the President, giving instructions to the naval officers who may be engaged in earrying out the orders on this subject. This letter designates the circumstances under which the duties required will be executed by the officers of the navy, or by those of the army. So far as it has reference to duties to be executed by the officers of the army, it Is sanctioned by this department, and you are hereby directed to cause it to bo observed. The general directions therein contained are alike applicable to the officers and persons connected with each branch of the public service. It is particularly enjoined that care should be taken to give full effect to the thirteenth regulation. If properly carried out. it will effectually secure the officers of the army and navy, ami our soldiers, sailors and marines, against an advauce in the price of the articles which they may need fbr their own use, by the operation of the proposed measure of raising contributions from the enemy. Tho contributions referred to iu tile foregoing instructions arn not all those which it may lie proper to levy upon the enemy. As the Mcxicuus persist in protracting the war, it is expected that, in the further prosecution of it. you will exercise ull the acknowledged rights of a belligerent, for the purpose of shifting the burden of it from ourselves upon them. The views of the government. In this respect, were presented to lieneral Taylor in a despatch from this department of the 3'ld of September, 1846. a copy of which, so far as relates to this subject, is herewith scut to you. with the direction tlint these views may bo carried out under a direction similar to that given to him. The enemy should Is- made to realize that there are other inducements to imiku them desire peace, besides the loss of battles, and the burden of tlieir own military establishments The right of an nrmy. operating in an enemy's country to geize supplii i. | I to forage. undto occupy such buildings. private as wrll an public, an may bo required for quartern, hospitals, storehouses ami other military purposes. without compunction therefor, cannot be questioned; and it is exported that you will not forego t"he rxorciae of thin right to any extent rompatible with the iutrrext of the Bcrviee iu which you arc engaged Very reaped fully, your obedient servant. W. L. M ARC Y. Secretary of War Major (Jeneral Wi*?i?:lo Si o r r. commanding F.ctraet from a Utter to Gen Taylor, (referred to in the Secretary'! imtrHcliom.) dated War Di partmkxt. } Washington. September 32, ISIti j| It in lar from being certain that our military occupation of the enemy'* country Is not a blessing to the iuhnlii tnntn in the vicinity. They are shielded from the burdenrt and exaction* of their own nuthoritle*. protected in their persons. and furnished with a most profitable market for most kinds of their property A state of things so favorable to their interest uiay induce them to wish the continuance of hostilities The instructions heretofore given have required you to treat with great Uindnes* the people, to respect private property, and to abstain from appropriating it to tlie public use without purchase at a fair price In some respects this is going far beyond the common requirements of civilized warfare An invading nrmy has the unquctionable right to draw its supplies from the cnciny without paying for them, and to require contributions for its support. It may he proper, and good policy requires. Unit discriminations should be made in imposing these burden Those who are friendly disposed, or contribute aid, should be treated with liberality ; yet the enemy may he ninde to feel the weight of the war. and thereby become interested to use their best efforts to bring about a state of pence. It is also but just that a nation which Is -involved in a war to obtain justice, or to mnintuin its just rights, should shift the burden of It, as far as practicable, froin itself, by throwing it upon the enemy. Upon tlie liberal principles of civilized wnrfnre. either of three modes mny he ^pursued in relation to obtaining supplies from the enemy, first, to purehase thein on suen terms as the inhabitants of the country may choose to exact; second, to pay a fair price, without regard tot lie enhanced value resulting from the presence of a foreign ,nrmv.jsml. third, to require theiu as contributions, without paying, or engaging to pay therefor. i n?! m?i mime in uio ordinary one, and you arc instructed to adopt It, if in thiit wuy you arc nntiHflcl you rnn get abundant supplies for your fornn , luit should you opprehcnd a difficulty in tin* respect, then you will fl'lopt till- policy of paying the ordinary price, without allowing to tint owner* the advantages of the enhancement of tin* price la-nlling from tin- increased demand. Should yon apprehend a deficiency under this Inst mode of dealing with tliu inhabitant*, you will bo obliged to | submit to their exaction*, provided, by till* mode, you ran supply your wants on belter term* than by drawing what you may need from the United States Should you attempt, to supply your troop* by contributions, or the appropriation of private property, you will be careful to exempt the property of all foreigner* from any and nil exaction* whatsoever The President hopes you will Is- able to derive from the enemy's country, without expense to the United States, the supplies you may need, or a considerable part of them; hut should you fail in this, you will proc ure theui in the most economical manner.
