[From tho New Orleans Picayune, May 97.] Our correspondents do not ceaso expressing their astonishment at the ccnvalesoenoe of Oen. Shield*. By a paragraph in one of Mr. Kendall'* will be teen that even an attack of pleurisy has failed to oloud hi* prospect* of recovery. Ill* case appears almost miraculous. The letter which we subjoin, from our Vera Crus correspondent. gives the particulars of an affair close to Vera t'rus, in which a small band of Mexican ladront$ was taken prisoners. Vraa Caut, Mexico, May 31,1847. A very nice little affair came off last night, about four hundred yards from the Gate of.Vlercv. about 11 o'clock, which resulted in the death of throe Mexican guerrillas, besides severely wounding a fourth, and Anally with the capture of nine others,'who aro now safely lodged in Jail, with a Aue prospect before them of swinging for their offences. The circumstances of the transaction have been related to me by two of the party, and are as follows:? Colonel Tom. Banks,'who was the leader of the party, learned from a good source that such a party bad visited the suburbs of the olty for several night* in succession, and had suoceeded in stealing several horses from the watcou vard. Bv tlA consent of the Governor ha ratuul a volunteer com'pa^ of soveu men, anil on Wednesday night sallied forth to catch the varmints, but without making any dlsooveries. Last night they thought to try their hand again, ahd accordingly about 10 o'clock they arrived in the neighborhood of the wagon yard. Four men were placed where they could see and not be seen, and the other three advanced iu different directions, about one hundred and fifty yards from the main body They wore not long in this position before one of them discovered one or two men advancing. He hailed, ffut they advanced upon him. The Mexican in advance, after getting his ribs scraped with a musket ball, took to his heels, whilst the otbor advanced with sabre drawn for a regular set-to, but a pistol ball settled him. Unfortunately for the first one he ran close to another of our party, who brought him down with a rifle. It was about this time that several others of the guerrilla party made their appearance for the fray, hut they were soon made to retreat to a house near by. They had succeeded in barrackading all the doors but one, and hiding their arms like cowards, when the immortal seven came up and burst open the door, taking them all prisoners, without opposition. On searching the house they found their arms, and their horses and equipments were found in the yard, which wus enclosed by a very high stone wall, aud as our guard had never been extended that far. thev no doubt th?.n?bt themselves perfectly secure. A more precious looking Hot of scamps {ban these prisoners I never laid eye* on. A portion of Col. B.'s party stayed to guard the house and property, and suco eded in arresting three men this morning, all well uriued and well mounted. There is no doubt a large party of them in the neighborhood, and no doubt the same that cut up the small party of dragoons at Santa Fe. The American Ragle says the spoils secured by this affair consisted of nineteeu horses and five mules, one American and nineteen Kngllsh muskets, fourteen escopets. twelve pistols, twenty-three saddles and bridles, about 400 weight of ammunition. The prisoners will be brought to trial aud severely dealt with 1 am indebted to Mr. Diamond for the following report, which is as full an account as I can give you of the affair referred te, with the exception that the captain does not state in it how he eseaped, which, I learn, was dona iu a small boat, in which he succeeded in reaching one of our steamers a few miles distant. Report of Capt. Huiston, Schooner Fraternity. On the 8th of May left Vera Cruz in company with the sloop of war Germantown, and arrived at Nautla on the 10th. The captain of the sloop of war fired a gun soon after onr arrival and hoisted a white flag, soon after which the authorities of Nautla came on board the sloop and signed all the documents necessary to place the town in possession of the Americans. This beiDg done, the Germantown sailed for Tecoluta, and the Fraternity remained for the purpose of disposing of her cargo. Af ten o'clock on the morning of the 13th, about three hundred armed Mexicans arrived at Nautla from Mlsaulta, and took possession of the town. They also seised tho authorities of tho place, together with Mr. Henry sGodet, supercargo of the Tholumity, Mr. Derbes, a passenger, and five of my crew, all of whom were carried bound toMisaulta. Two of my crow were on shore with me at the time, and the other three were taken from my vessel, which was lying outsido the bar, two miles from the shore. At two o'clock on the morning of the next day. sho was boarded by about thirty armed men, who ran the vessel on shore, stripped her of her cargo and set her on Are. The following are amongst the loaders in the attack, whose names were obtained by me, viz: 1'epo Nunez, Qabrael Acerta, Kosano Mendes and Augusta Arlega. [From the Vera Cruz Eagle, May 19.1 Whilst the army is pushing into the interior. Coin. Terry is employing every hour in hunting about the coast for some new enterprise to distinguish his noble officers and men. Ho has now been gone for several days in a southerly direction, and we expect soon to hear of some achievement, whioh will probably add another gem to the already brilliant crown of national glory which already encircles it. Capt. Mayo, Governor of Alvarado, started on an expedition on Thursday, the 13th inst., against a town of considerable importance, called (we believe) Talascoya. accompanied by eighty men. This place is said to be nearly one hundred miles in a southwest direction from Alvarado. He took gunboats with him only. On arriving at the place, he was received in all kindness, every attention being shown him that could be extended, in order to render his visit agreeable, and arrangements were made for the surrender of the town. We understand that Capt. Mayo declined leaving any force there, however, as it would have weakened those under his command too muoh. Oh his return, and whilst in his boats descending the river, which is represented as being both narrow and shallow, be was fired upon from a dense chaparral, and one officer and five of his seamen wounded. The following is a list of their names: J. O. Cringle, passed midshipman, badly wounded; J. D.Totten, seaman, do do; Henry Wright, seaman, do do; John Ellis, seaman, wounded in two places; James I)e Course, seaman, wounded severely; Win. Grant, seaman, do do. Brevet Major Dimmock arrived at Vera Cruz on the 18th inst. from New York,) in the bark Kdwlna, with portion* of the ftth and 7th Infantry and one company ofartlllery. He ia ordered to rendezvous at the fuente Nacional (National Bridge) on the Jalapa road until further orders. The Eagle nays that Col. Sowers was in Vera Cruz on the2'dd, with despatches for General Scott. Pvilti, May 19, 1817. The Americans entered this city on the 15th inst. without finding any resistance, although it cannot be denied there was some hostile disposition manifested on the part of the people here against the soldiers. The commander-in-chief (he refers to Gen. Worth) takes, however, every precaution, and it is to be hoped that within a short time the inhabitants will be more reconciled to their fate. Jalata, Mexico, May 16, 1847. I regret to state that Captain Mason, of the rifles, died last night. He is to be buried this afternoon with military houors. He was a gallant and most promising young officer, beloved by all. The order is out for the marching af Gen. Twiggs' division. It is to move on Tuesday towards Puebla, Gen. Scott accompanying it. A garrison remains behind under Col. Child*, composed of both regulars and volunteers, every wsy able to hold the position against any odds the en*my may bring. Thero is no mistake that General Scott's proclamation, which went directly home to every reflecting Mexican, is doing a great deal of good Hart and Wells, the theatrical managers, have given a grand funcioii at the I'laza de Toros?a regular bull ttglit-so you see that we are not entirely destitute o amusements, especially those of a refined nature. Today thero is to be a grand cock flght, and also another bull flght, and at night there is to be a theatrical performance at the theatre. This is a lively country. A Spanish dantrutt, said to be pretty, has arrived from the city of Mexico, has becu engaged by Hart and Wells, and makes her first appearance to-morrow night from Santa Anna we havo more positive Information, it is certain that he has passed through I'uebla, and with a force variously estimated from 15.000 to 50.000 men?the former number is doubtless nearer the mark. Some of the Mexicans here say that he will make a stand somewhvre between I'uebla and the city of .Mexico, and that he has three or four pieces of cannon. Others believe that there will be one grand strugglu at the city of Mexico?a last effort for the liberty of the Republic. Among fhe foreigners, again, there are those who believe that inta Anna is only pushing on towards the riinitul ti? rnntrol th?i olnriinna and hs*ln himsulf l.? to the highest office; and that then ho will conic out in favor of peace with the United States Other*, and aumng them thoee who pretend to great knowledge of thn country and it* public men, say that Santa Anna will never give up no long a* he can draw around him a force sufficient to make any kind of a ebow against "Ins Y ankees," ho himself always taking care to bo in a position whore he cau save his own precious body in case of a reverse. I have thus given you all the various opinions afloat, and must leave it to wiser heads to pick out which is the most reasonable. Santa Anna's whole lifo has been one of ups and downs?has been a riddle After his disastrous defeat at Iiuona Vista all thought his power completely broken up; yet he was found ugain in full force at Cerro Oordo There he met with the worst reverse of ail, and every one supposed him completely annihilated; yet we new know that he has collected another force around him, that he is pushing for the capital, and it is fairly to bo presumed that a man so full of expedients may yet give thn American arms some trouble. Had (ten. Scott been in possession of the proper means on the eve of the battle of Cerro Oordo, the city of Mexico would at this moment have been under the American flag, and very likely without the loss of a man?he had not the proper means, and the road may not now be found an open way. As yet I have received no further papers from the city of Mexico?nothing later than the 8th inst.?but I am in hopes daily of obtaining full flies They shall be forwarded immediately, by private express. If no other opportunity offers (Jen. Scott, owing to the non-arrival of a train expected this morning, will not move for two or three days to OUUl*. P. 8.?A Spaniard lias just told ma that Gen.

JUNE 5, 184' have definite intelligence before to-morrow of all that hae 1 occurred In the direction of Puebla. I Jalafa, Mexico, May 10, 1M7. , We have eome further reports in relation to General Worth's entranoe into Puebla, although as yet there la no official or positive information. A German who arrived from the olty of Mexico last night, and who appears to be an intelligent man, says that when the advance of Gen. Worth had reached a point a few miles this side of Puebla. on the lfith inst.. Santa Anna was in tusvii.] ui?w iisuwug auui'i ioma aoiuiera; mat to delay the advance of the Americana he aent out a party to akirmiah with them; that thia party waa attacked by Geu. Worth, driven Into the city with tbeloaa of aeveral killed and wounded, beaidea many horaea, and that ao hotly were they preaavd. that Santa Anna waa obliged to retire without having time to aboe all hla men. Such ia the report, and it look! reaaonable enough, of the German. Gen. Worth entered the city at 6 o'clock in the afternoon of Saturday, the 16th. Aa the gentleman left Puebla about that time, he ceuld not nay whether Santa Anna waa puraued or not. Other accounta aay that Santa Anna fell back aa far aaSau Martin Deiinulucau,which he Intended to fortify, while othera again will havo it that a grand atand ia to be made at or near Rio Frio. The former ia altuated on a plain and there nature haa given little or no atrength of poeition; while at the latter there are aeveral very atroug polnta, one, in particular, whloh may be fortified. If Santa Anna, too, can get up another excitement at the capital?and he can do almoat any thiug with bia countrymen?he can obtain itmnenee aaalatance in the way of throwing up worka. Kio Frio, if my memory aervea me right, ia but ten or twelve leaguea thia aide of the city of Mexico; yet it ia aaid there ia a road which turna it completely. Be thia aa it may. there are certainly indicationa that the Muxlcana arc determined 1 upon tusking another struggle. although it must again | result in their utter discomfiture After the successful Ntoriuing of Cerro Gordo by Colonel Harney.frout which he drove a well fortified force of more than double hie own number, there ia nothing the American arum cannot do. - Some fears are manifested that an express from Gen Worth has been out off by the rascally guerillas, lie most certainly would have despatched a messenger, unless he had received direct orders to the contrary; vet no person has arrived. The first thing the guerillas know, a lot of them will be strung up one of these mornings. The difficulty between Santa Anna and Gen. Minon Is a very pretty quarrel as it stands. The former ordered General M. at the battle of Buen Vista, to go in the rear of General Taylor, and when he, Santa Anna, drovo old Hough and Heady from the Angostura or Narrows. (Jen. >1. was to fall upon him and cut him nud his army entirely in pieces. This was perfeo; ly understood between them Well, after Santa Anna was forced to fall back.for the very gopdand most excellent reason that he could not induce General Taylor to budge an inch, he accuses General Minon openly of not obeying his orders. The Utter says, in justification, that If Santa Anna had driven General Taylor from his position, as he had agreed to do, that he was ready at the mouth of the narrows to make an end of" los 1 ankees" with his cavalry. I do not know how the matter will end, but so far Santa Anna has the worst of it most decidedly. There are occasional deaths among our wounded men, but the worst of those injured at Cerro (Jordo are doing well Speaking of wounded men, I will relate one little incident. When (ion. Shields was brought out from the spot whore he was wounded, to a place where several other! had already boon taken, 1 happened to be present.? After the wound ofthe gallant guueral had been dressed, the hurts of the others?perhaps there were ten or flfteou of them?were attended to. Among them was one tout llliuoiH man, named Ford, the half of whose head at least appeared to have been carried away by a heavy cannon ball. One of our best surgeons, Dr. Wright, went up to the poor fellow when his time came, and to my astonishment commenced clipping the shattered portions of his face, jaw, and ear, which still hung to him, and afturwards (dressed the wound us well as circumstances would admit. 1 say wound; it was worse than a wound, and a description ot it would be too horrible.? The battle was now over, and every moment they were bringing in some fresh victim of the result of the rocent strife. It seemed to mo that others needed the services of the good surgeon more than did the unfortunate individual in question?his case was certainly hopeless.? There were urms and legs to amputate, balls to extract, and tho writhiugs ot the wounded showed how much they needed the surgeon's offices ; yet he continued witn the Illinois man until he had patched his shattered head and bound it up as well as he was able. This was on the 18th of April. Two or threu days since, whan noarly a month bad passed away, I met Dr. Wright here in the streets of Jalapa, and asked him how long the man in question lived. If 1 was ever astonished in my life, it was whpn he told me that he was still alive, and what was more, he was well and hearty ! A portion of his face, his jaws on one side, and his ear are gone, but the man will soon be strong enough to shoulder his musket again, and is said to be more anxious than ever to have another turn with the Mexicans. Four men belonging to the army are to undergo most severe punishment this atternoou: they are to receive thirty-nine lashes each, in the I'laza, are to have their heads shaved, and after the word " robber" is pasted on each of their backs, they are to be drummed out of camp. This thing of publicly whipping a man is most degrading; but their crime was the premeditated robbery of the house of a Mexican, and under circumstances deserving of the most severe punishment. Three of them belonged to the 4th Artillery, and one of them to the 'id Pennsylvania regiment. Jalapa, Mexico. May -JO. 1847. We are still without further positive news of Oeneral Worth, and it is now almost certain that his despatches are cut olT. lie would hardly enter so rich and populous a oity as is Puebla, without sending an official account of it to Oen, Scott?at least such is tno impression. The Mexican* here hare new* ftom the citr of Mexico which we canupt get hold of, their own couriers doubtleu running regularly. One of them told me last night that fifteen battalion* of the National (Juard have been thoroughly organized at the capital, that fortifications are already in process of construction at or ner ltio Frio, that the bells hare been run up into cannon, and that the owners of an iron foundry at tho city of Mexico, Knglishmon, hare been compelled to cast balls on the promise of remuneration hereafter, l/nderstand, distinctly, that I get all this from a Mexican, and that it must be taken with allowances; but that there Is now a prospect of another fight, and a hard one. it is considered certain by many. To my thinking it will depend much upon the result of the election of President, news of which has not as yet reached the Americans here. If Herrera has been chosen, and there certainly was a party in his favor, it may be put down as a guaranty that peace measures will prevail. On the other hand, if Santa Anna has been elected, or a friend of his,the struggle may be protracted, and another stand made this side of the capktol. It Is now certain that Santa Anna was not in the city of .Mexico to control the late election in person, although his approach with an armed force may have nad some effect upon the States of I'uebla and Mexico. The four individuals I spoke of yesterday as having been guilty of robbery, received a portion of their sentence last evening and the rest this morning. A most disgraceful figure did they cut, marching through the streets with their heads shaved, tho word "robber" pinned upon their backs, and a band of musio playing the "ltoguo's March" immediately In their rear. Their names were Henry Heed, Hugh Duane and Henjamln Potter, of the 4th Artillery, and D. K. Hevalon. of the 'id Pennsylvania Volunteers. The latter was found guilty of horse stealing; the three former of breaking twice Into tho house of the same Mexican, and with threats and vlolsnco robbing him of every thing he possessed Hard and degrading as was their punishment, every one says it was deserved. Jalaps, Mexico, May 31, 1R47. There Is a good deal of doubt and uncertainty in relation t? the 1'resident in Mexioo; a good deal of surmise as to the manner of choosing this high functionary, iu the present instance, lly the constltntion, the plan of electing tho president is somewhat similar to that of our country ; each State in Mexico, through its State Legislature, elects its candidate for t'.hief Magistrate from among the dlffurenl members. This note is carefully sealed and sent on to the capital, and when all are couuted the individual who has the vote of the greatest number of States is declared duly elected Such is about the amount of the law in relation to the matter, yei it is known that in September last tlie Con gresH 01 me nepublic. in an extraordinary session, chose .Santa Anna President and Gomez Farias Vice President, and tin* Haiuu Congress, in thu present distracted state of the country, may do the same again If the high functionaries are chosen according to the constitution there are several Stat**?Vera Cruz, Tamaulipas, Nueva I.eon Coahuila, Chihuahua. Nueva Mexico, Upper California, and perhaps one or two other* ?which can take no part in the election, from the fact that they are occupied by our troop*. We shall know all about this matter in the course of a few days, and In the meantime I can Inform you that there are many intelligent and thinking Mexicans here who believe that llerrera will be elected, but perhaps with them the wish Is father to the hope The advent of the American troops in any part of this country gives the populatoon of the town* and cities two separate and distinct frights; the first is when they hear of the approach of " lo* Yankee*." for such have been the reports, circulated by thu Government that they honestly believe that their houses are to be robbed, their wives and daughters violated, and every specie* of outrage committed; the second fright Is when they hear that the Americans are to leave them, for they soon learn that their trade is better, that they have greater protection, and that the laws of the strangers are more wholesome, liberal and give greater safety than they have ever enjoyed under their own. They have been buying and selling, too, have been trafficking with the Americans, contrary to the express Injuctiou* of their rulers, and now it is their own people, their own lawlesa and half fed soldiery, that they really fear the worst. A day of sorrow will that be for Mexico when tho Americans leave it, although for one I believe that that day is far distant. A* long as the military hold supremacy in the eonntry our armies certainly cannot evacuate It. Mr. Trist Is still here, I might give you a column of speculation upon his mission, and very likely hit unon nianv truths in so doing; h"t have neither the time ner inclfnation at present to say more than that I bellevo that the hard blow* of 10,000 regular* will hate more effect in bringing the** people to their *eu*e* than all the aoft word* an e?|Ual I number of diplomat* could shower upon them The train which started up under escort of < aptain* Walker and Hull arrived yesterday, and It 1* now said that an onward movement to-morrow ha* been decided upon. A great excitement ha* been caused here on It* being ascertained that no lee* than twelve wagon loads of sutler's store* had- been found scattered through the train, to the great detriment of the service. Arrest* are talked of, and I suppose that several will take place Many essentials for th* uw of the army were absolutely [ERA r [eft behind to mako room for the good* and baggage of private individual*. Beside* Herrera, it i* eaid that Elloriaga 1* talked of a* a candidate for the Presidency. It may be recollected that the latter made a close run with Santa Anna for the lame office at the last election. He bear* an excellent character among the foreigner*, and it i* thought 1* in favor of peace with the United States. He Is not a military man, and that is saying a good deal for him. 11 o'clock, A. M ?The stage in Just in from 1'uebla, but I have little time to collect and write off the news. All was quiet at Puebla. and the people appeared to be well enough satisfied under Ueneral Worth. Santa Anna, it is said, did not stop at Han Martin, but kept on towards the capital, after his lancer* had been defeated this side of Puebla by (den. Worth. There is a report that Uen Valenctu, with 14.000 men. is to meet our army this side of Mexico, but there are so many reports that we can make little out of them LUorlaga is certainly talked of for the presidency. JaLara, May 31?13 o'clock. The diligence hasarrlvod from Puebla. but nothing offleiffl hud arrived frr?m tliu lanital nruvinm it* luna* lurg. The passengers statu that it waa currant at that place that Herrera had been elected President. I received a letter from Puebla, of which the following Is an sitract : " We entered this place on the 15th Inst. The natives, although t^ulet yet. have stabbed several of the men. and have kllleu two. We were attacked in Amasoca by Hanta Anna, with about 1500 cavalry?he lost three kiUed and seven wounded. The old codger took a fit of leaving for Mexico, where he is fortifying the Penol and Ayotla." I have seen another letter, from an intelligent source, to a gentleman in-this place, which says that Santa Anna retreated from Puebla to Sau Martin, and subsequently left for the city of Mexico; also that we are to be met on the road, somewhere, with 10.000 men. under one General, whose name I do not recollect, and 4000 under Minon. So mote it be?the more the better. No doubt by the time we meet them, their force will be augmented to trouble tbe number. We also learn that murders and robberies are being committed on the road dally, both by horscmon and footmen. The source af information can be relied on. Armv or the East, Medical Department, Jalapa, April 19. 1847. Inspector General?About midday, on the 17th Inst an action took place between some of our light troops, in a part of the mouutain to the left of the public road and below t'erro Gordo, to which 1 ascended immediately, accompanying his Excellency, the commander-in-chief From this point wo could distinctly see our men endeavoring to repulse tbe enemy, who on his part disputed the point with obstinacy. At about 2 o'clock my aid. Tarbe, caiuu to inform me that a considerable number of wounded bad collected round my tent, (the fifth ambulance or camp hospital.) Being ignorant whether tbe anion nau oecome general i coum not dispose or any of my subordinates, who were all at their espectivo posts, and therefore wax compelled to descend immediately to the assistance of theae unfortunates. At seven o'clock in the afternoon 133 wounded had come to my hospital. of whom 103 had been attended to. five ampu tutlona having been performed and thirty-one ball* extracted. Fearing. If the battle abould continue the next day. to be encumbered with the nick and wounded. 1 diepatched immediately those whose wounds had been dressed, in eight largo wagons, and ordered Dr. Felix Orellane. surgeon of the army, to accompany the convoy that same night to the hospital at Jalapa. and he started at 9 o'clock. I continued attending to the few wounded remaining, and at I'd o'clock at nlglit wo laid dowu. worn out with fatigue. At G o'clock on the morning of the 18thsome more wounded arrived. Having ascertained that the enemy had rendered himself master of the wood and mountain which he had attacked the evening previous, 1 considered that my camp hospital had become useless and oalled Dr. Kivadenclra to my assistance. 1 dee patched two more wagons witli wounded to Jalapa, but without eicort, an there was none disposable. A* the euemy advanoed, turning the Cerro (Jordo. few wounded could reach my hospital, and as besides two congreve rockets fell, one close to my tent and the other in the park of artillery, which was only at the distuncn of a pistol shot, but fortunately without bursting. I concluded to avoid this danger and to go nearer the rear guard of our forces. Accordingly I transported my camp hospital higher up on tho public road, a distance of about six hundred yards, to a hut fronting the commissariat general, where at that moment, several wounded arrived, and among them the seargeant of artillery, Antonio Bustos, whose left foot had been carried off by a four pound ball. All our cavalry was extended on the publio road; the brigade of infantry of Dr. Ortega was descending at a rapid pace, so that it was with extreme difficulty 1 could reach the house with my medicine chest. Dr. Dominguez, who came with this force, reported himself to me, and 1 detained him to assist in performing the amputation on llustos. We made the necessary arrangements for tho amputation in the entry of tho house, Drs. Tarbe and Verde holding the patient, and Domingues and Ilivadeneira assisting me. I had commenced cutting the flesh < f the patient, when a shower of balls coming from the woods in the rear of the house, and passing through its feeble walls made our cavalry retreat in thehlirection of Corral Kalso.A woman, an old man, and a child of seven years, were wounded in the kitchen of the house. The balls followed in every direction. Our cavalry continued the descent with impunity, while our horses, tied to the posts of the entry, attracted the attention and the balls of the enemy. But honor would not permit us to abandon the sergeant, whose amputation was only half finished, although our death appeared inevitable, but a Divine Providence saved us. I continued attending to the various stages of the amputation in the midst of balls and the cry of the enemy, and at last finished an operation which appeared to me to have lasted an age The serenity and resignation ol my companions in this crisis, were admirable, and if above description. All remained around the patient, at tending to the part of the operation which full to thcii share, in the midst of the whistling of balls and thecriei of death; and when we rose, looking to heaven with gra< titude far our salvation, as wo thought, a new peril caui< to dismay us. A number of volunteers presented them selves in front of our entry, and seeing our uniform eried " Death to the Mexican officers," and presented their guns to our breast. I do not know what sentiment inspired me in the resolution which I took, but I rushed to the musxle of their rifles?I showed them my hand dripping with blood, and holding a piece of the mutilated leg, cried?" Respect humanity or a hospital of blood? wo are surgeons." My words produced a magic effect. In an instant an officer, whose name I have since learned to be Pion, stepped between the volunteers and ourselves, raised their guns with his sword, and these men, animated by victory, thirsting to avenge the loss of their general, mortally wounded, as I have since learned, bocame from that moment our friends, our protectors. While these events were passing in mv hut, which will never be erased from my memory, our nring had ceased; the troops in the redoubts, finding themselves cut off from the public road, surrendered or capitulated; those on the slope of the Cerro (Jordo retired through the ravines.and the enemy remained master of all our positions and the immense materiel. The volunteers of the enemy commenced bringing in. without distinction, their own and our wounded, and we dressed their wounds according to the dictates of humanity and our instructions. We performed various amputations on some real giants, which succeeded in gaining their good will to such an extent that they refused us nothing that could be useful to us or our wounded. Although two of thair own surgeons had arrived, the body which I have the honor to command had the satisfaction that from their number was chosen one mnmbei to assist in some grave cases, even in that of Genera! Shield*, who had been traversed by a grape shot On the IWth all my companions of the camp hospital) of the redoubts, where they had remained at their poet with honor to their corps, until they received permission from the enemy to retire, presented themselves to me. and considering their presence in this place indispensable, I have retained them near me.

Delta, May J7 ) El Monitor, of the 'JHth April, urges the necessity of responding immediately to the call of the government, and that every man or boy, capable of bearing nrinn. should do so without admitting any excuse uuder any circumstances Uut the editors add, that iustead of hurrying to the defence ot the nation, there are many who go into the country, and others pretend that they have no arms, and are ijuiet at their homes, confident that others will risk their lives to dvlend them but that II every uiau did not lake up arms, the different bodies Of national guards and militia would be dissolved, and each man would have to defend himself as be could The Jiyuntamiento calls on the citizens. In a lengthy and patriotic appeal, dated tbe d7th April, to aid tin- war in whatever manner they can, with arms, provisions, money, or anything else. The accounts received from the different departments, in regard to the arming of guerilla bands, were very encouraging to the Mexicans At Tesooeo they were enlisting fast, both infantry and cavalry, under command of the different chieftains who had obtained appointments. In the State of Oojaca they were organizing different order to intercept the march of American trains ana troops to and from Vera Crux. Three bands of guerillas had been, formed at I'uehia, under the commands of Generals Furlong ilea, and Orinoechea.? These forces would march immediately towards linear, in order to resist the Americans on their march towards the capital. Oca.

The member* of tbe Legialaturu of the State of Mexico addreaaed a patriotic proclamation to the people they repreaented, calling upon them to reapond faithfully and without delay to tlie wanta of the country Don Lorcnio Arellano, Governor of the(State of Guanajuato, alao cndeavora to excite the men under hla command to prepare themaelvea Immediately, with whatever arrna i hey miM obtain.

The Irii recommends that the Mexicans should follow the example of the Spaniards; that if (isnerals Taylor and Scott have declared all Mexican bands or guerillas as outlaws, the Mexicans should likewise declare the Americans to be banditti, and, as in Spain, decide that for ' every Mexican that should be treated as a land pirate by the Americans, three Americans will be hanged out of those falling Into the hands of the Mexicans."
