Yesterday being the day appointed by the joint committee of the Common Council for the purpose, a solemn and respectful tribute was paid to the memories of our distinguished fellow citizens who fell in fighting the battles of their country in the present war with Mexico. From sunrise to sunset, the national flug was displayed at half mast from all the public buildings and hotels, from the shipping in the river, and from every place of amusement in the city. Everything wore a sombre and melancholy appearance, particularly so in the early part of the day, wher the sun was obscured by masses of dark leadcolored clouds; occasionally a slight shower o] rain fell, and it required no great stretch of imagination to think that nature was weeping ovei the loss of some of her treasures. From 12 o'clock to one the bells of our different churches tolled u solemn requiem. The occasion was a sad one, and will be grutefully remembered by our citizens. During the celebration of the day preceding, and when the sun was within about an hour ot finishing his daily course, the general effect was much enhanced by the appearance of a beautiful rn I n kmii ll> U nU anAM?la<l t ho oi til I i 1/ o n Iviltmnll. alarch. It was beautifully sublime, and its variegated nnd melting tints appeared to commingle with the hue of the thousand brilliant flags which ornamented the thousand flag staffs scattered over the city. As might be expected, it was much admired, and by many looked upon us the harbinger of additional good tidings from the seat ol war. Whether it was or not, we will not undertake to answer; but certain it was, that within two hours after its uppearunce, the glorious newt of the utter rout and defeat of the Mexicans a Cerro Gordo reached our office by telegraph. May we not now hope for peace 1 Military Movements.?A detachment of twc hundred recruits, being Capt. Andrews', company C, Ipth Infantry, and Capt. Duff's company, 8d Dragoons, left yesterday afternoon, on board the brig Mobile, for Point Isabel, to join the division under Gen. Taylor. Capt. Andrews has command of the detachment. TheatricPark THtATat.?Mr 1 orrcst concluded bis engagement. and received a benefit at the park Tboatre, lust evening He appeared in two of his great characters, vi* " Oraloosa" and " Willlimm Tell." Mr. Anderson will commence a short engagement at this establishment next week, in which ho will personate many of bh host characters. To-morrow evening he will appear in the tragedy of " OisippUB." Of course there will be aeontluuaiiceof the large attendances that marked.Mr Forrest s engagement, and which were so flattering to that distinguished actor. Bowery Theatre.?The Bowery was crowded last evening, the occasion being for the benefit of Mrs .Shaw, and her last appearance. The principal pioce ol the evening was the tragedy of "Hamlet,1' lu which Mrs Shaw herself, appeared in the character of the youni Dane The performance met the approbation of tlx very large audience, it is a bold undertaking for a fe male to undertake this exquisite character, and we doub whether nuy one of her sex. now upon the boards in thi country, could successfully compete with Mrs S in iti performance The afterpiece was " Lucille, or the Ston of a Heart." in which Mrs Shaw. Mr Neafle, Mr. Hada way and Mrs Booth appeared.

INTERESTING DETAILS. &C., itc., die. 1 lie news ot another decisive victory over the ; enemy, was brought by the steamer McKim, at , New Orleans from Vera Cruz, whence she sail> ed on the '20th. 1 On the afternoon of the 17th ult., the advance of t our army, under Gen. Twiggs, numbering 8,178 troops, encountered the Mexicans, and a severe conflict took place, entirely decisive in its results. As his general orders show, Scott's intention was only to give battle on the 18th. The action was brought on by the Mexicans. r The main battle was fought on the 18th, and [ resulted in the complete tr umph of the American arms. Santa Anna made his escape, after the rout of the army. General La Vega was again taken prisoner, with fifteen or more other officers. i, TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCHES TO THE HERALD OFFICE. No. 1. L Philadelphia, May 8th, 1847.?P. M. s The first charge on the 18th was made at several points by the regulars,and 3d Tennesse and the Pennsylvania Regiments. Woundrd.?1st Pennsylvania' Regiment?John Lambert, Lindsay. 2d Pennsylvania?Jacob Simons, mortally; Edward Cruise, Thomas liann, John Chamber, all of Philadelphia. Rangers?James Shaw. Abraham Row, Witbelm Frederick Summers. Ampudia was in the battle, but ncithof he nor Santa Anna ventured within the lines, but prepared to run the moment the day seemed to turn against them. Ampudia was near being taken, close to Jalapa. The army was on the advance towards Mexico. According to one account General Shields was still alive ; according to auother he was dead. The Jtmtriran Eaf-lt of Vera Cruz.of the 20th ult.. represents the scene on the top of Cerro Gordo as truly the ascent and the top ; a collection of wounded of both parties, side by side, and surgeons busy amputating limbs and dressing wounds. The Mexicans, when they gave way, Btarted down the hill, receiving the balls from our men in their backs. I General Pillow's wound is slight. The Maxican force was, at the lowest, put down at 10,000?some accounts say 18,000. ( The Mexican officers were paroled, and with the soldiers sent about their business. The generals will bo p sent to New Orleans?La Vega among thox^having refused parole. An Ex-President is among those ou parole. Generals Patterson and Smith were not In the battle; they wero confined by sickness. The advioes from the city of Mexico are to the ninth ult., via Tampico. Santa Anna had issued n proclamation, announcing the fall of Vera Cruz, and attributes the event, not to the want of Mexican valor, but because of the interminable discord ; declares that he will sacrifice himself, and die fighting sooner than to permit the Americans to tako their imperial capital, &c. Since then, he has changed his mind and fled at Cerro Gordo. The Arch-Bishop of Mexico was sick. No. a. Philadp.i.phia, May 6th, 1647. Afitor the battle our army proceeded on towards the ! city of Mexico. Saata Anna's coach was used as a coni veyauce for Major Sumner and other wounded officers. General Shields was dangerously wounded, and It is i' thouirht. can hardlv recover Maior Sumner's wounds I "??' ? ?- ?are not dangerous. Neither Santa Anna or Ampudia took active part in the battlo, and the word wax noon vamot with thorn; the latter wan nearly taken, but did not havn to lay down ' liin arm*, aa Santa Anna did hi* leg. The Mexican* lay in heap* on the top of Cerro Gordo after the battle?all their wound* were In their back*. Their force wa* near fifteen thousand. The date* from the oity of Mexico to the fitli, *tate that the clergy of the capital had agreed to fitrnlsh the government with a million and a half monthly, and other bishopricks had made *lmllar promises. It appears, by the following, that the ofiiciul despatches hud not reached Washington on Friday efening:? [From the Washington Union, May 7.] We understand that no despatches have been rci ceived from General Scott by this evening s mail. They I are expected with great impatience.

The division of General Twiggs started two hour* I since, and a heavy cannonade has already commenced I ujion hi* line from the farthest of the Mexican work*. ! At interval*, too, the rattling of small ann* can lie heard distinctly from the dragoon camp, where I am , writing this. it was not intended.

The entirp loss on om '' hide, in killed and wounded, la estimated at about one ' hundred ; but from the nature of the ground?broken ^ 1 entered with brush and thick chaparral, and extremely 1 uneten ? it is Impossible to tell with accuracy. Nor can r I. at this time, give even the names of the officer* who ' were immediately engaged. About 3 o'clock tbeanomy made a demonstration from the fort on the neighboring height to the one our men had captured, as if with the intention of retaking it; but It all ended in marching down the hill, blowing a most ' terrific charge on their trumpets, firing a few snots, and , then retiring Their appearance, ns they came down the slope, was certainly most imposing. Thn cannon on * the height, meanwhile kept up a continuous fire upon I (Jen. Twigg s lines, yet doing little execution other than cutting down the trees and brush. As we returned tc * camp, the (ire still continued?the enemy had evidently ' ascertained the position of the road, which had just ' been cut with accuracy, but their halls principally went over. (Jen Shields, at 3 o'clock, was ordered out to support finn Twiggs, with three regiments of volunteers?two 1 from Illinois under Cols, linker and Harnett. They will ? have warm work to-morrow, if the Mexicans stand up as they did to-day There lias been not a little skirmishing to-day between t (he forage and b??f parties, sent out In the rear, and the . ; i .incheros. One Illinois man was killed, and one of the I -nine regiment and a Tennessean wounded. I could not I j b arn their names To-morrow the grand attack, both upon the front and i rear of the enemy, is to be made fJen. Worth is to move : at sunrise and little peace will the Mexicans have for ono twenty-four hours at least Pla* del Hio, April 18?4 P.M. The American arms have achieved another glorloui end most brilliant victory. Outnumbering < Jen Seott'ii [ t'irce materially, and occupying positions which looked , impregnable as CJibraltar, one after another of theii ' works have been taken to-day; tlve generals, eoloneh * enough to command ten such armies as ours, and other ' officers innumerable, have been taken prisoners, together with r> 000 men. and the rest of their army driven and o 1 routed with the loss of everything, ammunition, cannons. ,t bu-ggsge train and all.

The loss on both aides has been heavy?how could it have been otherwise' The rough and rocky road, cut through rugged detlles and dense chaparral by our troops, is now lined with our wounded. The Rifles, Cot Haskell's Tcnnevsee volunteers, the 1st Artillery, the ?th Infantry, and t'apt. William's company of Kentucky volunteers, have perhaps suffered most. General Shields was severely, mid I am fearful, mortally wounded. while gallantly loading his brigade to storm one of the enemy's farthest works. Gen. Pillow was also wounded, although slightly, while storming a fort ideation on this side, coinmnnded'by La Vega. All the fleld officers of Col. Haskell's regiment were wounded at the same time, save himself. Of the Rifles. Capt. Mason has lost a leg, Lieut. Lwell has been badly wounded. Lieut. McLane, slightly. I have already mentioned the gallant Major Sumner aud other officers wounded yesterday. I have specified some regiments above, which signalised themselves: it happened to be their fortune, in the disposition of the battle, to fall upon what all good sol diers may term pleasant places?the most difficult works to storm?and bravely and without faltering did tluy execute the perilous duties assigned them. At 1 o'clock this afternoon. Gen. Twiggs, whose division has been in the hardest of it. was pursuing the tlying enemy towards Jnlapa. i'ierson, who commanded the forts nearest I'lan del Hio. asked of Oen. Worth time to consider before he capitulated. Desirous to come to terms, Oen. Worth gave him fifteen minutes, and he surrendered unconditionally! liad he not done so, the slaughter would have been terrible. 1 write in great haste, and have no time for particulars. The names of the killed and wounded I will ascertain as soon as possible. I think that son will cover our entire loss. Had it not have been for the positive cowardice of Santa Anna and Canalizo, who ran, before the battle? at least in brave men's hands?was half lost, It would have been far greater. No one. at present, can estimate the loss of the Mexicans?they are scattered on the hills, in the roads, every where. What disposition Gen. Scott is to make of the prisoners, is yet unknown He may set them all at liberty on their paroles, from the difficulty of feeding them, and to accelerate his own advance movements. We shall hear by to-morrow. I wigh he could send the officers at least, to the United States, for there is a fine string of them. | litis now impossible to name officers who have distinguished themselves. 1 cannot, however, omit to mention Cols. Harney, Riley and Chllds. of the regulars; Cols, llaker, Korinan and Haskell, of the volunteers, as every one is talking of them. 1 write this in great haste, and with noise, confusion, and every thiDg else around me. You cannot appreciate the victory. To describe tho ground and fortifications of the enemy, the difficulty of turning their outer works, and the toil and peril undergone by the troops were impossible. Flaw dkl Rio, April 19?Forenoon. The rout of the Mexicans last eveningwas total?complete. Thoy were pursued within four miles of Jalaps by Gen. Twiggs, at which point there were none to follow. Santa Anna himself, instead of entombing himself as he threatened, escaped by cutting the saddle mule of his team from the harness of his magnificent coach, mounting him, and then taking to the cbapparal. His service of massive silver, nearly all his papers, his money ?every thing in his carriage, even to nis dinner, was captured. 1 have a capital story to tell about this dinner when I have a moment to spare. The Mexican loss upon the heights was awful?the ground in places is covered with the dead ! Among the bodies found was that of Gen. Vasqucz, and near him was Col. Palucio. mortally wounded. Their loss in the retreat was terribly severe?every by-path is strewn with the dead. Had our dragoons been enabled to reach them in season, all would have been killed or oapturod?Santa Annn umnnir them Canalizo. with his noted lancers. had the prudence to bamot early. Even up to thin time it la Impossible to give anything like a full or correct lift of. our wounded offloera?it la surprising that many of them were not killed. Lieut. Derby, a gallant young officer of the topographical engineers, was badly out not mortally wounded, while storming one of the heights. Lieut. Ewell, of the rifle*, is supposed to be mortally wounded. This regiment has suffered terribly. Lieut. Daua, of the 7th Infantry, was badly wounded; Capt. Patten, of the 2d, slightly. Lieut. Davis, of the rltleH. was very budly wounded in the hip. Major Sumner, of the 3d Dragoons, but commanding rifles. is improving. The list of killed and wounded officers in Col. Haskell's command yesterday I have been able to obtain. It should here be stated that Captain William's company of Kentucky and Captain Charles Naylor's company of Pennsylvania volunteers were attached temporarily to this regiment. Here is the list:? Killed?1st Lieut. Kroderick B. Nelson, commanding company; 2d Lieut. C. O. Gill, company E. Both these officers were from Memphis. Wounded?Lieut. Col. D. H. Cumming, slightly; Major Robert Farquharson (cf the 1st Texas volunteers, assigned to this regiment for tho day) severely; 1st Lieut. Wiley P. Halle, Adjutant, severely; 1st Lieut. W. Yearwood, mortally; 2d Lieut. James Porrest, slightly; ( apt. A. H. Murray, severely; 2d Lieut. George T. Sutherland, Kentucky volunteers, severely. The regiment, when in action, numbered less than 400 men, and its loss was 79 in killed and wounded La Vega was In command of the Cerro Gordo on the first day of the fight, but a deserter from our dragoons, a German, going into their camp at night, and informing them that the main attack was to be on the right of their line -tho work so fiercely attacked by Genoral Pillow. he changed places with Gen. Vasquez. The latter, as I have already stated, was killed?La Vega defeuded his post until tho lines of the enemy were completely turned. Several Mexican colonels have been killed, but their names I have been unable to learn. A brother of Gen. La Vega, a colonel of artillery, was severely, and as is supposed, mortally wounded. Hundreds of cases of individual gallantry, in storming the different heights, are mentioned. Col. Childs led on his command on the first day until he had only uonie 'fnrtv or flftv men with him. It is also said that Capt. Magruder followed up a charge until he hud but nine soldiers left. I runnat now recollect one tenth part I of the instances of almost reckless daring displayed, but shall endeavor to pick them up. I shall also send you on a full return of the killed and wounded if I can obtain it, but at present it is almost impossible to get hold of any- I thing. The wounded are still along the roads for miles, although they are bringing them in as fast as possible. The army is to advance towards Mexico immediately, j (Jen. Worth's division marched this morning?General Scott is to march at noon. Santa Anna's conch is to be harnessed up for the purpose of carrying on Major Sumner?better use than it was over put to before. The officers and man of the Mexican army?I mean such as aro prisoners- -are to be turned loose on their parole not nguin to take up Rrnia during the war. FerliAps it is the best disposition that could be made of lliern, as any other course would delay Gen. Scott's forward movement. Fifteen of thoir officers have refused to sign, but have given their parole of houor to report themselves, without delay, to Col. Wilson at Vera Cruz, us prisoners of war. Among these are Gens. I.a Vegu and Jeroro, the latter Governor of Peroto during the time the Texan prisoners were there, and I believe distinguished for his good treatment of them These officers will either be kept in the castle of 8. Juan do Ultia, or else proceed to the United States. Gen. Shields is still alive, but it is considered impossible for him to survive. The ball went through his lungs as he was leadiug his men to storm the farthest work of the enemy. I write tills auiid confusion of all kinds, and with no other table than knees. A hundred Mexican officers are around me, making out their paroles, while our own dead are being carried by and consigned to their long reeling place by the roadside. I shall start on for Jalapa tills afternoon, and will write by every opportunity. 1 send you some Mexican papers, as also Santa Anna's last proclamation. It is rich. P S.?I have just learned that there are some hopes for (Jen. Shields. God grant he may live. Col. liaker,who charged on the last fort, lost forty-five men In killed and wounded, out of only a portion of his regiment. Lieut. Cowardin killed; Lieut. Murphy supposed to be mortally wounded; Lieut. Johnson wounded in three places, and thigh umputated; Lieuts. Scott, Froinan and Malthy. wounded. The following general orders were issued by General Scott the evening before the battle of the 18th :? Head Quarters OK tio: ARMT,) I'lan del Kio. April 17, 1847. J General Orders?No. 111.

Chamberlin, and Captain Moore, of she 1st Ohio Regiment, arrived here in company with the command of Major Oiddlngs. They are all apparently in good health and spirits. They brought with them a large nuihber of letters and papers, which, though two months old. were very gladly accepted. The command of Major Olddings, consisting of detachments of the Louisville Legiou. and the 1st Regiment of Ohio Volunteers, arrived here on the 29th ult. from Camargo, bringing with it a heavy train. This is the same command that was attacked on its passage down at Cerralvo. The 1st Regiment of Indiana Volunteers is encamped at the Springs, near Monterey, on the old camp of Oen. Hauler's Brigade. Several companies of the Texan Rangers have arrived here, and will, wo doubt not. be of great service. They are the kind of men to deal with the train robbers. A train left this place on Monday last for Camargo, under the escort of a detachment of Misslssipplans. NEWS FROM MONTEREY. [From the New Orleans Delta, April 29.J M.STSUr, Mexico. April 4, 1947. Since the arrival of Oen. Taylor hero, all has remained quiet. For four weeks prior we had at least one stampede in every twenty-four hours* All the troops, and every thing of value, were removed Into the Citadel Fort, strong ploket guards constantly posted, and the Fort put in a complete state of defence. There seems to be something in the presence of the old hero that Inspires every one with the belief that no harm oan come where he is about. With May's squad of Dragoons, and the 1st Mississippi Regiment, he has encamped on his old ground at Walnut Springs, apparently in as much security as when his whole army was with him. The 1st Ohio Regiment is at the Citadel Fort; and the 1st Kentucky in the town. The citizens are returning to thoir dwellings, and the market, which has been a long time deserted, affords quite a variety of Mexican edibles. Three days ago, the Alcalde and Priest of a small town some twenty miles distant, on the road to China, came in and reported to Gen. Taylor the murder of 34 Mexicans, at Gualopa. a small ranch about six miles from Ramus. The murder was committed, they say, by a party of Americans numbering about 30. and was done In the night. The murdered men were first mado prisoners, tied, and afterwards all shot through their heads. The murder is said to have been committed on tho 38th ult. On that night a train of loaded wagons, escorted by 300 infantry and about the same number of horse, under the command of Col. Mitchell, of the 1st Ohio Regiment, eucamped at Marin, which is about fire miles from the scene of the murder. The mounted men were composed of U. 8. Dragoons and Texas Rangers.'under the oommand of Capt. Graham, of the 3d Dragoons. Suspicion rests upon some part of this corps, though no clue has as yet been found to discover the guilty. The officers in command?gentlemen, and rigid disciplinarians?are using every means in tholr power to Investigate the matter. General Taylor has got his steam up on the subject, and is determined to nave hung every one who, it can be proved, has taken part in the murder. The town where these men were killed is but a few miles from the place where the large train was captured, and so many wagoners were massacred, on the 33d of February Some fifteen or twenty of the wagoners who escaped from that massacre, came up in the last train, yet there is no evidence that they were engaged in the Gualopa murder. 1 passed over the place of the massacre of the 33d February a few days ago. and the scene is truly the most horrid and revolting that I have ever witnessed.? The remains of the murdered men, yet unburied. stripped of every particle of clothing, lay upon the plains, their flesh devoured by Mexicun wolves and buzsards, and their bones bleaching in the sun. The train was a very large and valuable one. and stretched out from three to four miles in length. The attack was made upon the escort, who were in the advance, by a large body of Lancers. The escort, 40 men, under Lieutenant Barbour, of the Kentucky Legion, were all taken prisoners, and are now in the possession of Urrea. The Lancers charged down the train, and lanced without mercy the wagoners as they ran for their lives to the chaparral.? More than three-fourths of them, it is thought, were killed, and their bodies shockingly mutilated aud disfigured. Those who passed the scene a few days after, say that some had their hearts cut out and suspended upon the bushes, or thrust into their mouths ; the eyes of others were dug from their sockets, and inserted in wounds midc in other parts of their bodies ; and other mutilations were performed that would make even a North American savage blush tolook at. Yet these acts were committed by Oeu. L'rrea's men-the regular sol- I diers of tho Mexican army ! L'rrea, by last accounts. was at Linares, expecting reinfcrccnienU. It is rumored that he has four piece# of artillery with him. Marin, Cerra.ro, Mier. and China, will all aoon be garrisoned by our troops, which will render our communication with Camargo entirely safe. Troops here are in excellent health and condition. The Kentucky Legion leave on Monday for Camargo. as an escort to a train. These troops hare but six woeks to serve, and as it is (Jen. Taylor's intention, 1 hear, to discharge them at New Orleans. I presume they will not return again. The Ohio troops have about eight weeks to serve?their turn will probably coine next. The number of regiments whose year will expire in May or June, now in (Jen. Taylor's column, is thirteen. How their places are to be filled I cannot devise ?perhaps you oan inform Ms. We are looking with great anxiety for news fromOen. Scott. Nothing of interest from Sultlllo or Agua Nueva. The surgeon reports our wounded doing remarably well Of the whole number wounded in the 1st Mississippi regiment. only one amputntion was required. The wounds, generally, are from muskets balls, and of course slight, compared to those made by cannon.grape and cannister, at the battle fought hero. The position of our troops at the battle of ilueua Vista rendered the nrtillery of the enemy almost entirely ineffectual: not more than eight of our men were injured by cannon shot.
