IMPORTANT FROM VERA CRI Z. [From tho New Orleans Picayune. April 23.] The best advice, lead to tho impression that a battle wo* fought ut Cerro Gordo. nearly midway between the Puonto Naclonal and .lalupu. on '1 hurgday or Friday lo*t. We have heretofore announced the advance of Oeneral Twiggs's division into tho interior. When last heard from he waa beyond the Puenle Nacional and In close proximity to the Mexican army; Gen. Scott waa expected to arrive at (Jen. Twigg's headquarter* on the nlgbt of the 11th ln?t. Gen. M orth left Vera Cruz with the lust division of the army on the 13th, aud bivouacked that night at Sau Juan?about twelve piiles in the Interior. He probably joined the advance on tho 13th. Santa Anna whs said to be at Cerro Gordo, where La Vega and Canalizo were posted with a considerable command. The Mexican foroe at that point, when joined by Santa Anna, was <-kiini!U'*a at nrteeu thousand strong?cunsiatlng of two thousand regular Infantry. three thousand cavalry, ami the . einatnder Irregular**. The pans of t.'erro Gordo Is forty-four miles from Vera Crut. ami la naturally a very strong one Home difficulty is anticipated in forcing It. Humors state that Santa Anna cau obtain any amount of irregular force he inuy desire Reoonnoileriiig partii i from the American army had been tired upon and several woundod?amongst whom was Captain (now Lieut. Col.) Johnson, of the Topographical Kngincers, who was shot in the arm and hip whilst examining the Mexiran works at (.erro (iordo. Intelligent officers. who arrived in the Massachusetts, entertcrtuin very little doubt that a general engagement has taken place. A number of soldier* have been shot in passing the rood to and fro All accounts represent the Amerieuns as confident of victory, ami the Mexicans as burning tor vengeance. Our next advices from Vera Cruz will, we doubt not. bring us the details of an important engagement. V'kra l'?i l. April 13. 1*17 A German gentleman has just told me?it Is now 10 o'clock. A. M. that tinuta Anna was at his old hacienda of K.ncelro day before yesterday. This place Is close by Jnlapa. Caualizo ami l.a Vega ure at I erro Gordo, where no less than three heights have been fortified Gen. Scott went out last night; (Jeu. Worth, with his division, marched this morning, and will bivouack tonight at Sail Juan, on the other side of Sunta Kc. Gen. Twiggs is at Plau del Hio, close by the Mexicans, and there are those who think it more loan probable that he has already had a brush with them. It is thought the position at ('erroGordo can be turned, and in ease l.a Vega and Caniilir.o make good their retreat that they will make anothsrstand at Los Dtos. Time will show. The hospitals are full, and the sickness is said to be on the inorease. I still cannot learn that there has been any well authenticated cases of vomlto, although many have died of fever. Vr.r* Cri;t., April 14.1A47 The Massachusetts sails in half an hour, and I hasten to send you the latest intelligence received fromthe ad vanco of our army on its march towards Jalapa. Despatches were received hero yesterday eveuing from (Jen. Twiggs, slating that the enemy had been discovered, and that in a reconnaissance some eighteen miles beyond the National Bridge, at a point called the Black Forrest Puss, ( apt. J. E. Johnson, of the Topographical Kngineurs -now Lieut. Col. of voltlgeurs?was severely wounded with a shot through the una and another in the thigh, it is more than probable that ere this (lens. Twiggs und Pillow have had something of a " brush'' with the cuemy. Hanta Anna is known to have arrived at this pass with a forre said to he l.vnoo strong, consisting of 2000 regulars and the balance of irregular troops; of whom 3000 are cavalry. The point above natned t> a very stroug one, and naturally atfords great advantages to tho enemy, but my word for It, they will not hold it long after our troops assail t. When Capt. Johnson was wounded in his reconnoissance, he was with an escort of the 2d dragoons, under Cspt. Hardic. [From the Vera Cruz Eagle. April 13.] It Is strange that tho presence of the Americans in this place for ten or twelre days only, should have wrought such u change la the general aspect of affairs. The city, the day we entered its gates, was the most wo-begoue looking place that could bo liuagiued. There was uothing to eat. notiiingto drink, and nothing but soldiers to talk to. Now. trie streets are lined with eutablcs and drinkables, and every stop upon the side-walk is made within a few feet of an American. Streets that were then filled up with fragments of stone snd mortar arc now cl arod of the rubbish, and nothing >n left to tell of the destruction the city sustained, but tho broken doors and windows, and a few of the houses iu the vicinity of the gata of Mercy. The natives themselves seem to have uudergono u change also, and 110 duobt have, for being freed from the presence of their own army, who daily levied contribution from them, they have tile protecting ariny of our own General, who suffers the commission of no wrong to go unpunished. This is enough to change thcro; and our prayer is, that the difference between the two Governments may become so apparent to them? the preponderence always being ou our side? that, emulated by our course, they may shortly establish fur themselves a government upon our own iiberul principles. Like those of Tainaulipa* and Nucva Leon, they are better off whilst their territory is being occupied by our troops than they over were before, 1 he harbor is crowded with American ships; the quay is Ullcd with American poods, the streets with Americans ; and, although our possession of the place may inconvenience proprietors. who have lived off of the poor, to the many it is a blessing. affording incalculable benefit to those of the ''upper two bit ts " With the advantages of American commerce and industry, a very few weeks will elapse before this city of Vora (.rui will he a place, and its inhabitants, who have suffered so much of late, will ho in the enjoyment of all the comforts of life. We have been told that as soon as permission is obtained, wbieh we suppose will be after our boys get there, the old diligence line will recommence operations, and run regularly between Vera Cruz and that place, making the trip up iu less than 24 hours To those of our citizens who may be going thither, this will be a great convenience, besides an Inducement forthose"to hum'' to visit our army Many are too timid to rest long at Vera Cruz during tho prevalence of tho vomito, and by this arrangement, tliey can reach here ut 12 M., and be off in two hours.

Stockton bad refused to obey the instructions of his government, declining to giro up the eomiuand of the civil government of California to < ienernl Kearny. Into thia dispute it ia to be lamented 1 that Stockton drew Colonel Fremont on hia aide. It la to be hoped the I'reaident will cauae this affair to be investigated at once. The Independence, bearing the broad pennant of Commodore Shubrick, arrived at Monterey. California, on the d7th January. Commodoro liiddie, in the Coltltnbua, waa also expected iu n few days. Tlio storeahip Lexington had arrived. It was supposed that on the arrival of Commodore Diddle he would issue an order for the urrost of Commodoro Stockton General Kearny had gone to Monterey with his few remaining men.? Commodore Stockton remained at the head of affairs in Los Angeloa. None of the ports on the Pacific had been blockaded, and vessels were entering und discharging at Mazatlau without any molestation. On the 8th of January, near tho Pueblos do los Angeles, a battle took place, in which the Californians were defeated with considerable loss, and the peaceable possession Of that territory to tho I'nited Slates restored Commodore Stockton accompanied General Kearny on the occasion?in fact, the expedition was composed principally of sailors and marines. On arriving In front ol the enemy, Commodore Stockton proposed to General Kearny to halt, but it being on the Htb of January the General very laconically replied that ho would not on that day do so, and the engagement commenced. GENERAL TAYLOR O.N THE FIELD OF BATTLE. Lieutenant Corwino writes to the Cincinnati Chronicle, and gives the followiug interesting sketch of Gen Taylor on the battle-field of Duena Vista :?l'J)y way of illustrating an important characteristic of Gen. Taylor, to wit, determination, I will briefly relate a scene that occurred od Ihc buttle ground of Ilueua V ista, during the action of tlic 23d. At a timo when tho fortune* of the day deemed extremely problematical?when many on our side eren despaired of success - old Rough auu Ready, ax he in not inaptly stylcd.whom you must know, by the bye, in short, fat. and dumpy lu person, with romarkahly short leg?took his position on a commanding height, overlooking the two armies This was about thruu, or perhaps, four o'clock in the afternoon. The enemy, who had succeeded in guiniug au advantageous position, made a fierce charge upon our column, and fought with a desperation that seemed for a time to Insure success to their arms The struggle lusted for some time. All the while, Gen. Taylor was a silent spectator, his countenance exhibiting the most anxious solicitude, alternating between hope and despondency. His stall, perceiving his perilous situation, (for he was exposed to the Are of the enemy.) approached him and implored him to retire, lie heeded them not His thoughts were intent upon victory or defeat. He knew not at this moment what the result would be. lie felt that that engagement was to decide his fate. He had given all his orders, and selected hiH position If the day went against him. he was irretrievably lost; if for him. lie could rejoice In common with his countrymen, at the triumphant success of our arms. Such seemed to bf bis thoughts?his determination. And when ho saw the enemy give way, and retreat In the utmost confusion, he gave free rent to his pent up feelings His righl leg was quickly disengaged from the pummul of the sJi die, whern it had remained during tho whoio of t.h? fierce encounter?his arms, which were calmly folded over his breast, relaxed their hold- Ills feet fairly danced in the stirrups and his whole body was in motion. It was a moment of the most intense interest. His face was stifTused with tears. The day was won?the vietory complete?his little army saved from the disgrace of a defeat, and he could not refraim from weeping fbr joy at what hnd seemed to so many, but a moment before, as an impossible result may the noble and kind-hearted old hero lire to enjoy the honors of his numerous brilliant victories, and many other honors that a grateful country will ere long bestow upon him."
