[From tho New Orleans Delta.] The expectation of tho garrison of Vera Crn* waa, that the city would be carried by storm, and they had made great preparation for a rigorous resistance, which would, no doubt, haro causod great bloodshed and destruction. The streets were barricaded as they were at Monterey, aud loopholes were arranged for the gunners, rows of pickets made, and sand bags thrown across the barricades. On the flat tops of the houses cannons and howitters were so arranged as to rake the streets. Kvery house was a fortification. There was. too, an abuudanco of ammunition; and 110 doubt had the city been stormed, thousauds of persons would hare been killed, and our army, especially, would hare suffered disasters far moro heart-rending than any which have yet occurred in this war. It was therefore a proof of the humanity. as well as of the wisdom of (Jen Scott, that he preferred the slower but less sanguinary modo of investment and bombardment. To the mercenary soldiery who garrisoned Vera < ruz, and who wero desirous of emulating the glory of their brethren at Monterey, by slaughtering our men from behind the safe defencos of thick stone walls, and from the secure terraces of tho houses, it was no doubt a disappointment that the streets of Vera Crus wero not made to run with tho blood of innocent women and children, who would be Slain in tho inevitable roufusion of tho storming of so strong a place. This was the ambition of Morales; but fortunately the effectiveness of our shells brought the citizens to their senses, and they united, as well us the National liuurd. in protesting against any further resistance Morales saved himself from tho chagrin of deposition by resigning, and (Jon. J.andero, second in command. succeeded him?aud I10, with more wisdom and regard for the lives of the people, proffered the capitulation of the city. Tho damage and destruction caused by our shells, especially by those shot from the navul battery, were awful indeed The houses in Vera < rus are mostly built of coral roek, unit yet the I'aixhan shot would pass through as many of them as lay in their range. Those which struck the roofs, would pass through two or three stories, and then burst, destroying everything around, and in some instances actually throwing down the sides of the honees Tho eastle was not at all Injured; one man in it was mioa dj usoeu. i Din iramenn* fort meat ion. covering ileveu seresof greund, *u well supplied with ammunition. There were more then a thousand 13-inch shells, argor thun any used by our army, and two hundred of the finest guns in the world. Many of these were made itjllarper'i Kerry. In this country, and some of tiiein were quaint, old Spanish brass pieces, dated as far bark is 1031. The strength of this famous castle bas uot l>een exaggerated. It was a just remark of an officer of the British fleet, in reply to an inquiry of Com Perry, whether he thought It could bo taken by a naval squadron. that "with athousand British or American seamen or soldiers to man the castle, it could blow to atoms all the narirs of the world, before they could make nu ini- i prcssion on its walls.'' The city would have been uttery untenable without the castle It could not have been occupied an hour under a Are from the castle In taking possession of this fortification, many valuable Mexican documents, tending to throw some light upon the InLcntions of the government, and others furnishing valuable historical information respecting the castle, and also relating to the political history of the Republic, came into the possession of our officers. We look forward to their publication with no little curiosity and interest. All the valuable provisions in the castle were filched by the storekeepers and sutlers, who lived within its walls MONTEREY AM) THE RIO GRANDE.
