April 34, 1847. { Sir:?'Tuxpan being the only fortified place of Importance. situated on the gulf ooaat. not In our possession, and eoncelvlng It to be a point of honor, as well as duty, to reclaim the guns taken by the enemy from the wreck of tho Truxtun. and mounted with others for the defence of the river and town. I determined on attacking it, and left Sacrlflclos In this ship for that purpose on the 13th Instant, having In tow tbo steamers Spitfire, Vixen, and Scourge, and the gun-boats Bonita, Petrel, and Reefer, with a detachment ot three hundred officers, seamen, and marines from ths Ohio, distributed In this and tho smaller vessels. On the following day we arrived at Lobos. the appointed plaae ef rendezvous. The Karl tan, with a detachment, of one hundred and eighty officers, seamen. and marines, from the Potomac, added to her own complement. Tho Albany. John Adams, and Uer mantewn. with the bomb-voascis Vesuvius, Etna, and HccU, had been previously despatched for Loboe. whero they arrived in good time, and were subsequently joiuod by the Decatur. On the K>th all the vessels left Lobos for the anchorago under Tuxnan Reef, but were separated daring tho nltftat by a nortner. Having again concentrated on the morning of the 17th. the whole of that day woe cmployed In lightening the small vessels, in sounding and buoying the chatyicl of the bar, and in other preparations for ascending the river. The following morning (the 18th) the bar was safely crossed Ly the steamers and gun-boats, with about thirty barges filled with detachments from the different vessels ut anchor outside, having with them four pieors of artillery. After crossing tho bar 1 hoisted my flag on board tho Spitfire, aud immediately led up the river to the atturk ; the steamers having the gun-iioats and barges In tow. until we got into tho range of the fire of the enemy. wnen i oruureu tuem to cum oil ; mo gun-boats to follow up the river under sail, and the detachment* in tha b <rgeR to land with tha artillery and storm the forts and town Thesa orders were executed with extraordinary rapidity, while the flotilla continued its course up the rider, and driving, by its well-directed Are, the enemy from his defences The dispositions of the enemy for dofenee were judicious; lliry consisted of two forts on the right, nnd one on the lift bank of the river, with positions well selected for commanding the readies of the stream. They had s-vea guns mounted and detachments of infantry flrin [ from the forts and the thick chaparral along the margin of the left bank. General Cos. cliief tlic Win ward military division of tbe Mexican army, was in command, and bad with bim. as is believed from tlic evidence of his orJ.er-book. about ti.Pi rank and file. But if th" dispositions for defence worn judicious, the defence itself was feeble; though, had it been more obstinato. tbe results would have beeu the same, for 1 cannot exaggerate the intrepidity of our officers and men, or say ton much of the spirit that animated them. Tiie Truxtun's guns were brought off, and the others destroyed; the forts were also destroyed. Our loss in tbe attack has been small?fourteen killed nnd wounded. The enclosed papers, lettered A. 15.

Sir 1 have the honor to report that, in obedlenee to your order of this morning directing mo to vielt the cnrniy'e batteries, and remove the Truxtun's guns, and sneli others as might he worthy of removal, and to destroy the remainder. I proceeded first to La Pen.i. tho ent iny's principal fort. It was situated on tho right l?enk of the river, a mile and a half below the towu. on a bluff about ( 0 feet high projecting into tho stream, and commanding the downward course of the rlvar for two miles In It I found two 3'2-pounder carronades of 21 owt . formerly of tho Xruxtun. mounted In barbette on half circles, and betwoen them one long 9-inch embrasure, bulilud a breast-work, faced within and without Trinir-iitimi n'ir?iMif i mn iit~~ E NE View of the The Pnente Naclonnle, a National Bridge, 30 mllea from Vera Crux, formerly railed Pnente del Rey.

Our day") journey vu to be only twelve league), an we had been adviaed to sleep at Puente del Key. a large village, celebrated as the soeae of many a sanguinary engagement during tho revolutionary wars; but although tho ground rises but little In the interveniug space, we found tho greatest difficulty in advancing, from the extreme badness of the road, which was in many places a wilderness of sand The carriage-mules knocked up, and the coachmen mutinied both at F.l Manantial and at Paso Ovejus. two ranebos, at each of which they seemed determined to pass tho night; and although we forced them on. and loft a guard with them at last, with strict orders not to allow them to stop, they did not reach tho Puente until two in tho morning. Wo arrived ourselves about dusk, with barely light enough to| enable us to admiro the beautiful scenery by whieh we wore surrounded The bridge,which Is thrown over tho river Aut'gun, at this place, is like most Spanish works of this description, admirably constructed. The arches are of stone, and the bridge itself communicates with a causeway, which on the one side, winds down a steep des;ent. and on the other, forms an elevated road, along which the huts, of whieh the village of the Puente is coui|>osed, are scattered amongst some large irees. at cnustilernme intervals irom eiicn oilier.

The Truxton's guns and carriage a bar? beeu embarked, and the 9-pounder destroyed The breast-work and ghed lor the protection of the garrison were set on fire. The next fort in uacetidicg the rirer. called La Pclinagola, whs a water buttery, placed at the j.motion of the Tuxpuu with one of its tributaries. This also looked down the gtreani. It had also a breast-work faced on both sides with sawed timber and filled in with dirt It had three embrasure*. and a banquette between thein for Infantry. Only two of the embrasures hud guns mounted on theui. These were two long elghteens of iron, which have been destroyed. One of these guns had been struck by our shot, and the exterior fHcing of the fort, particularly about tnn embrasures, was much cut, bearing testimony to the accuracy of our fire. The shed for the shelter of tbo garrison was burnt, and tire set to the breastwork. On tho left benk of the river, near the centre of the town, and oil the beach to delund the landing, was a Impounder carriage gun of iron, which lias beeu destroyed. On the centre of tlio steep blulT. in the centre of tho town, was the fort called the Hospital, surrounded bv a ditch, and having u 33 pound chambered gun of 37 cat , f?rmerly of tho Truxtun, mounted on a pivot, and euinmanding tho approach up tho river to the extent of iti range. This gun with its carriage lias been embarked.

Nothing can he more monotonous than the general character of the country from Vera Cruz to the Fueuto; the Rand liilla do not indeed extend abore tbroo milce Into the interior, bnt for some league* there seem* to be a struggle betweru vegetation and slerill ty. Patched of a rich and luxurious green urc intersected by loop intervals of rock and sand; nor is it till you reach Paso do Otrcjw that anything like regular cultivation is discovered There we passed the mine of a large sugar liaclcnda. which had been abandoned during the revolution, and daw evident traced of u rich and productiveaoil. But on leaving the river, to which this fortuity id due. we again found ouraulves in a sandy desert, where little but tlio iniuiosa was to be icon, except iu spots wliero Home apparently insignificant stream railed into existence at once the luxuriant vegetation of the tropics. In these we were <juitc bewildered by the variety of plants, all new to the I'.uropcan eye. and generally thrown together in such fanciful confusion that the most experienced botanist would have had some difficulty in classifying them; for. as each tree support" two or three creepers, thn fruits and flowers of which bear no sort of proportion in point of size to the slender brandies of the mother plant, it is not easy to distinguish them, at first sight, from the produce of the tree to which they cliug. 'J'he air is quite perfumed at times Perry's flagship; the frigate Rariton ; the e<yv- itcs German tow o. Albany. John Ailuuis. ami Decatur: the steamers Spitfire.

The Mississippi anchored in five fathoms water, within a mile of the breakers, and. as all things wore in readiness, boat-load after boat-load debarked from the vessels, stood in for the shore. dn?licd tbroopli the breakers into tho smooth water of the river, and then landed ttieir men in safety on thu sand-bun h. The small steamers, with the gunboats in tow. likewise ploughed their way through the foaming surge, ssi.lv crossed the bar, and anchored where there was scarcely a ripple on the surface of the water. Comniodora Perry rauie nn board the steamer fpitltre. t ommodore Tattnall, and hoisted hia broad pendant. Just about thut lime Mexican troops were discovered some distance above, en tlie bank of the river, apparently engaged in throwing up a breastwork ; and in- 1 stantly tho order was given. all hands up anchor and iu the shortest possible time tho almighty st-am was driving us head on to the uneiny. but as we neared them wo were convinced that they were only a recounoitering party, and they fled with the utmost precipitation 'J'he steamer wns then put about and a pain took up her position preparatory to forming line, lit order to ascend the river to tlio city, some live miles distant. Tho Hpitflrn. flagship led the way; then followed tlie Vixen, t otntnodera Sands; tlio Scourge. Lieut Commanding Lock wood; the gunlKiats Bomta. Lieut. I omuiaudiog Beuham; Petrel, Lieut.

The smooth surface of the wati r for over a hundred yards was doited with boats, with streaming pelndant" and their brightest ensigns. Tli? river, too. winding along through a verdant country, is picturesque and beautiful iu the extreme: and thus ? ran along, uieler easy steatn and sail, until we arrived within sight of the first fort, situated in a bend of tlie river, about a mile from the city. Herefrom the fort a curling sinnlsM anil a booming sound passed the intimation round that we should not take the place without a struggle; but their shot fell short, ami Hie Commodore, apparently regretting the circumstance, sung out go ahead fast.'' and the good old steamer commenced puddling her wheels In double quick lime. And then the enemy opened on us in earnest; shot after shot flewjovcrnur vessel, and struck tho water soinn distance astern. The tort was located high above us. on a steep batik of tlie rivnr. and therefore they could only bring a plunging fire to bear upon our approaching squadron. Tills proved of great advantage to us. for an we ran rapidly towards thein tliey must alter tlio train of their guns every time they delivered their tiro.
