The Warm Reception of His Excellency. Stones and Shouts of Indignation Showered npon his Bead. MOVEMENTS OF COLONEL DONIPHON. Naval and Military News. Rrn Mr n Mr n I IMPORTANT FROM THE CITY OF MEXICO. [From the New Orleans Patrla, June 3 ] The advices received by the James L. Day, state that Santa Anna was expected to arrive in the capital on the 19th ult. By more recent accounts, via Tamplco, we have dates from the city of Mexico up to the 21st ult., which mention his arrival on the 19th ; but his reception was very different from that anticipated by his friends. The populace?the loperos principally, forced themselves into the streets to receive him, and with shouts of indignation, he was followed and pelted with stones, which came so thick around him, that be had barely time to effect his escape among his friends, and into the palace. The people,exasperated by the continued loss that the Mexican army has suffered, and seeing that all the promises* of lithe Oeneral-ln-chief were , vain, wished to be revenged on him. and perhaps would have dragged him ignomintously through the streets of the city of Mexico, but for the interference of the authorities with an armed force. (Jen. Valencia had taken command of the army, and was preparing to march out of the capital to meet the Americans. Letters from persons of the highest authority and who have no motives in giving any thing but the truo state of affairs, state that if Santa Anna falls from power, he willnot leave a stone unturned to cause another revolution. The state of affairs in the capital had assumed a character not altogether unfavorable to the advance and occupation of the oity by the American army The internal broils caused by the reception of Santa Anna, will require all the available force now under Gen. Valencia, to preserve order. [From the Mobile Herald, June 3 1 We received yesterday a copy of El Republicano from the city of Mexico, with a request for an exchange, it is dated the 16th of May. In this number of El Republicano we find an important docum nt which a friend translates for us as follows. None of the New Orleans papers contain any allusion to it:? Official Lelltr of hit Excellency the Qeneral-in-Chief (Santa rfnna) accompanying tome intercepted document t of the enemy I? Head Quarters, Fcebla, May 13, 1847. Army or Operations.?Excellent Sir?The commandant of the flying revenue guard oi tobaoco of Orizaba, the Colonel C. Juan N. Caraveo, whom 1 laft with bis commamd near the National road, between I'erote and Nopalucan, to observe the movements of the enemy and to barrass him when the opportunity might offer, has remitted to me the accompanying documents which were taken fr?m the enemy's mail, which left Jalapa for Col. Worth's camp Among them you will find General Scott's proclamation to the Mexican nation, which from its style appears to have boen written originally in Spanish, and not translated from the F.nglish This proclamation or scons u wntten vun inc mon refined hypocrisy autl with tho moat infamous perfidy It is the greatest insult yet offered to the Mexican people, whom it has attempted to lull (a i/uirn tt prrtmdr udormecer) to make it the victim of tku nmbilon of that nation which is the enemy of our race, when, in another place, it foel9 no embarrassment in proclaiming by the press and in official documents, that it carries on against us a war of conquest. and that this war must be made at tho cost of the blood and treasure of this unfortunate country. Your Excellency will note in one of the accompanying intercepted letters, that Scott, the Inspector General of llio Culled States Army, considers the above proclamation well adapted to al l the views of the invaders. You will observe that this letter harmonizes with others which have been lately published in this capital, and which with reason have been regarded by all well disposed Mexicans as more prejudicial for the venom (punzona) which they conceal than the loss of a battle But in the midst of the mateTolence (encona) which General Scott shows he has against mo, he does me too much honor when he says, that they had been deceived as to my real Intentions, and that on account of this mistaxe his government permitted me to pass to my country. Indeed, most Excellent Sir, the United States did deceive when they dreamed that I was capable of betraying my oountry. Before this should happen I would prefer to be consumed by fire, and my ashes should be scattered, that not a single atom be left Would to God the Mexicans would open their eyes to discover the poison In the golden chalice that the perfidious Scott proffers to them, and that the reply to his | proclamation may be one shout of universal indignation against the invaders of our sod. Let a war be made agaiust these without period, that when we may no longer be able, because I'rsvidwnce may have decreed ths subjugation of this unfortunate country, there may remaiu to our children or grand-children, when the wrath of the Omnipotent shall have passed, the noble work of revengin ' the outrages committed by the republic of the United States on Mexico. God and Liberty! ANTONIO LOPEZ DE SANTA ANNA. To bis Excellency the Minister of War and Marine. ADDITIONAL PROM MKX1CO. [From the New Orleans Picayune, June '2 ] We mentioned yesterday the activity of our squadron upon tho Pacific coast of Mexico. We now insert a letter which wo find in a paper of the 13th inst. It is dated ? Sin Bi.as, April 30, 1B47. At 7 o'clock this morning there arrived at this port, in two days from .Yazutlau, a boat despatched by a commercial house, with the single object of advising ths offiocrs ot two smnll vessels, which were about to sail from Mszatian with provisions, that they should not go to ses. but at once place their vessels in safety by secret ing them or running them into some unfrequented creek. The occasion for the despatch of these instructions by the parties interested is, that on the 'Jflth inst . two of the enemy's vessels of war presented themselves off Mazatlan. establishing unew the blockade, which ha' been interrupted by the departure of the cruisers. From the vessels which had arrived information was obtained that by tho 29th eight other vessels would reach there with sufficient force to occupy the town by force of arms, and then the town ofSau Bias A like lameutabie fate was preparing for Acapulco. whither a large naval foroe had already sailed from California. I communicate this information with the view that it may be laid before bis Excellency. Sic ,Gen. Bustamente. that he may take such measures as he may deem fitting for the critical circumstances in which our uuhappy country is placed. J. NERVO, Comandancia de < aladoresde San Bias. To the Administrator of the Customs at Tepic. Gen. Alvarez, who appears now as one of the competitors for the presidency, was accused not many months ago. under the Administration of Paredes. of the grossest corruption Among other charges was one that he misappropriated funds destined for the < alifornia expedition, and thai he sold the nruiuments of sumo of the Mexican works on tile Pacific and applied the proceeds to his own use. Now he is one of the pillars upon wnicn tbe nope* or hi* counlrymeu rest. lie nan incij placed Acapulro. which tuny be considered hit lair, ill a atate of defence and gone up to Mexico to assist In the general defence, followed. It la said, by three or lour thoiiaand men Before leaving he published an addresi. to the inhabitants of hi* bis section of the country, explaining to them the objecta of tne war on the part of the Amerlcaus. It ia particularly full of misrepresent a tlon*. hut Is nevertheless well written and spirited. He concludes hy telling them to sharpen their knives, ontl that the war will soon be over. Another candidate for the presidency we perceive is Melchor Ocampo. He is now. we believe. Governor of the State of Michoacan. He is a friend of the President substitute. A11 ay a. and a strenuous advocate of the war We find a long letter in the papers, advocating his views He calls upon the people to join the guerillas to abandon the large cities and carry their property off to the mountains Should Mexico consent to make peace witli the enemy he will fight, he says, against ths inhabitants of that State as well ns the foreign foe. Suoh is his aveiston to peace that were the country to consent to It; I oven were hisown Mic'0ican to do It?he doel res he will rather expatriate himself than yield to It and live in a dishonored country. The proclamation of (Jen Scott to the Mexican nation was produced in the Mcxisan congress on the 14th of ,May. I- rem the statement of the minister, it would seem to have been found among some intercepted papers. 1 The Rtpublicano treats the document with little ceremony. and without attempting to reply to Its reasonings, dsnouuees it as impertinent and disrespectful. The Government has oonceived the suspioion that the document was concocted by some Mexican acting in conjunction with Scott, and ' the fury of the nation and the severity of the laws" aro hold up in lerrorim against all who thus connive with the enemy In remarking upon the civil dissensions in Durango. the Rtpuplicano takes occasion to read a wholesome lesson to Its countrymen upon the license of her military commanders. In timo the people will learn the true value of this numerous and most profitable class. Hear the lirpuhlicano rate them: ? "Who has told these seditious and insubordinate soldiers that they are the judges of the conduct of a public functionary very superior in rank to all of them T Who has given them authority to declare tho country in dan W YO ffiW YORK, FRIDAY MC ger In order that they may impose laws on the civil authorities * In our opinion they desarva the name of traitors only, who in the presence of the Invader do npthing but excite seditions. , The conduct of these military men involves a crime of the gravest nature against publio order and our institutions. and it Is necessary that it should not escape with impunity, so that the people may see that the States have not reoovered their sovereignty to be the sport of these commanding generals. The nation has been long enough the victim of these disgraceful military oommotlons, which, after having exhausted us. have left us defenceless in the power of the stranger. It is time at least that the scandal should cease." In another number the same pap i' advises tho government that the vast number of officers who are now idle at the capital, drawing their pay but rendering no equivalent, should be organised into companies, without regard to rank, and made to serve the country. The contributions of the clergy of the country by no means correspond to the demands aud expectations of the government or the liberal editors. Some bishoprics are highly commended for tbeir liberality, while others are as strongly condemned as niggardly in their appropriations. Many, too, of the clergy made no acknowledgment of or reply to the circular of the government calling upon theui for aid. They are threatened with official uud DODular dlSDleasura The Uw suppressing the liberty of the press has been found futile. The press appears to us as bold as aver, aud instead of supporting Anaya, it now opposes him. It has even oompellod, by its influence, the recent change of Ministers. Iu the his, a Spanish paper published in Mexico, it was announced on the 7th ult that a convention had been ooncluded by the government with the Spanish Minister, by whioh it was agreed that the flag of her Catholic Majesty should protect not ouly naturalized Spaniards in Mexico, but the sons of thoso who were born in the republic The Rtpubluano takes the alarm at this, and demands an explanation from the official organ. Subsequently we do not find the subject mentioned. The Rrpuklicano takes fire at every indication of European influence in the alfairs of the country. We have before us the letter of Scnor do la Rosa accepting a place in the Ministry. The only notable passage in it is as follows: "1 am honored in taking part in the labors of a Cabinet which 1 am sure will devote all its energies to save the independence and nationality of the country, sustaining the war at every cost, Until a peace, honorable and u>eful for Mexico,may be possible." NKVVS FROM THE ItRASOS. [From the New Orleans Picayune, June '2 J The Sovereign, from Brasos Santiago, sailed ou the '23th ult. Although not later than the James L. Day. she brings copies of the Malamoras Flag of the 'i'2d aud -26th ult., which wo had not before seen. Lieut. Mchaffy, of the 11th infantry, and Dr. C'boloner, of the army, came passengers. The news wo gave yesterday of the arrival of Colonel Doniphan at PHrrasis confirmed by the Flag, which says tho intelligence was oommunicatvd to Gen. Gushing by a letter from Monterey. Col Doniphan waa shortly expected down the river with his command. Mr. Parish, bearer of despatches to Gen. Taylor, from Washington, passed through Matamoraa on the'26th ult. to his destination. lirig. Gen. Cadwollader had ordered an election in the Massachusetts regiment, to supply tho vacancy in the colonelcy made by the promotion of Gen. Gushing. It was to have taken place on tho 27th ult., but we have not heard the result. Threu men of this regiment recently deserted and nttemuted to reach the Rrasns Thnv rriuuuxl the river above Matamoras. and bad not gone far Worn a party of Camanches name across thorn aud murdered tliem all. The Flag says that a few dayi prior to thin an the Kentucky cavalry were on the march from Camargo to Keynoaa. they arrested another deserter from the same regiment. On being interrogated he replied that he was going to Monterey, to take a boat to go back to Massachusetts. Whether his insanity was real, or only feigned, the Flag had not buen Informed. The body of a white man has been recently discovered about seveu miles below Reynosa. shot through the breast. No clue has been discovered to the clroumstanoe of the murder or the name of the victim. The news tron Monterey U no later than we have already given. The 1st Ohio regiment was to leave there on tbe 10th, and the 1st Indiana regimeut ?n the 20th ult, on their way home. The last train coming down met 1,600 pack mules near Cerralvo, going up with supplies. Major Case, with a detachment of 3d Dragoons, arrived in Mataoiorus on the 24th ult. We have before given the destination of this regiment,commanded by Col E. Q. W. Butler. The Government has been erecting a large hospital at i Toint Isabel, 180 feet by 08 encircled by a 12 feet gallery | It is situated on the most elevated spot in town. and. ao! cordiug to the Flag, which gives a glowing account of it, I will compare favorably with similar structures in the | United States There was a copious shower of rain on the 26th at Matamoias, which is mentioned by the /Vug bk if It were an occurrence deserving a thanksgiving Between the 19th and 23d ult , the Rio GrauUe rose teu feet, and fell as much. It was low at last accounts A company of Tennessee cavalry, which has been at Matamoras for the last eight months, is alsiiit to return home. The steamer Telegraph arrived at the Brasos on the 24th ult, and left again immediately for Vera Crux The Indian incursions among the Settlements on the Itin Grande and the frontiers of Texas are attracting attention. It was supposed that Colonel llays would devote a little time to them, if Gen. Taylor could spare him. The traders of Matamoras are indignant at the new tariff promulguten for Mexican ports. The Flag advices them to call public meetings to denounce it. We do not precisely understand the position of the battalion of Texans which had crossed the Rio Grande. Our own correspondent wrote us that (Jen. Taylor was compelled to decline their services, not being authorised to receive them. The Flag gives a different account of tbe matter, and says the General will keep them in active service. We copy the following items from the Flag of the 22d : Ult.:? An accident of a very distressing nature occurred at I Camargo on the 9th inst A very interesting and highI ly promising youth, Ventura Kidder, aged eleven years, son of Capt. Henforth Kidder, jr . of this city, was instantly killed by the accidental discharge of a gun in the haiuls of a Mexican servant attached to the family. Capt Kidder acting as aid or interpreter to Col. Belknap, was absent from his family at the time.and learned tbe death of his sou a few days ago whilst in this city. The grief of the father can better be iniHgined than described A letter was shown us yesterday, dated ttth inst . at San Luis, written by a wounded Mexican nlhcer, (formerly a citizen of this place) to a friend in this city, which gives a truly distressing account of the destitution prevailing there among the sick aud wounded in the hospital The hospitals are crowded and tbe soldiers are ac. tunlly dying by scorei, of starvation and neglect. The country adjacent to San Luis wan completely dripped of all It'produce to feed the ariny of 30.000 Santa Anna kept up there for ninny month* prior to the battle of Duma Vista. and now even the citizens of the place are guttering for want of the common necessaries of life. The .Mexican government makes no provision whatever for the wounded soldiery, and they are '<> be seen dragging their mangled limbs along theitreets. and begging?alas' too often in vain- for bread. The troops have all left? leaving not so much as a regiment to garrisou the city. [From the Matamoras Flag. .May 3d. A gentleman recently front Monterey, informs us that the three companies ot mounted Texans. which we reported as being ordered back from < amargo hy Col Delknap, to their stations on the eastern frontier of Texas refused to obey the order, and proceeded on to Gen. Taylor's headquarter*, where they were received into service, and assigned to duty eonjointiywith Major Chevallle's eomrnnnd The Texas mounted force now In the Held, is upwards of (100. and we understand that it is the intention of lien. Taylor thatthey shall not remain inactive. A detachment lias already been, or soon will he, ordered on ranging service, ss fur down as Victoria and Hsu Fernando.

June 2.1 The following report by Brig Oen Lane la supplementary to hi* dm official report of the operations of his brigade In the battle of Buena Viata. Me has thought It call ed forty the developments of a court ot inquiry held since his first report was made, and by the various statementa made in the papers injurious to the uharacter of Indiana As an act of justice to the Indiana troops, and as a part of the record of the great deeds of the 23d February, we comply with the request made upon us. and cheerfully give the report an insertion in our columns. Bt'ava V'iiu, May. IM47. From the comments of the press, the numerous letters that have heeu writteu and published, the many false and ridiculous statements uttered by dttlerent persons at sundry places, concerning the battle at this place on the Slid and 23d of February last, and more purtloularly in oonsequenoe ot the erroneous statements invented and olrculated in referenos to the Indiana Brigade in pnnnitrtian with that mitmnnhU '! ?? I AJ ........1 f mah. trilln?<l. In dlsobarge of an Imperious duty, to give to the public a nuociuct acoouot of facte which may enable every candid reader to arrive at oorvPbt conclusions, and that the public mind limy be disabused of a studied and systematic attempt at misrepresentation and detraction The disposition of the troops seems to have been confided to General Wool, and they were posted iti the following order, viz :?The lid Regiment of Indiana volunteers. commanded by Colonel Bowles, with three pieces of artillery under Captain O'Brien, were posted on the extreme left. The 3d regiment of Indiana volunteers, commanded by Colonel Lane, occupied a height in the rear of Washington's battery. The 1st Illinois regiment, commanded by Colonel Hardin, were stationed ou a high hill nsar and a short distance to the left and front of the same battery. The lid Kentucky Volunteers. UDder Col. McKee, was on tho did posted ou the right of a deep ravino at a distance of a half mile, on the right of the battery, but on the morning of the 33d were ordered to reoross the ravine, and took placo near Col. Hardin and to his left. The 3d Regiment Illinois Volunteers, under Col. Bissell, were posted further to the left, and.In the rear and to the right, at a distance of about half a mile from where the 3d Indiana Regiment was placed ; which regiment, as butore remarked. occupied the extreme left ol the field, near the base of tho mountain. The four ritle companies of my command, under Mnj. uorman, were at early dawn of day ordered to move up the side of the mountain to engage the enemy, some three thousand strong, who were endeavoring to crosR the points of the inountulu aud to turn our left tlauk. These riflemen were directed to check their advance if possible. Three rillo companies of the 3d Illinois Regiment, tbreo companies of Col Marshall's mounted regiment, were dismounted and sent up the mountain to the assistance of Major Gorman, whe had now for soma time baen ho'ly engaged with the enemy. The contest on tho mountain brow raged with fury for the space of about threo hours, when I was luformed by Col. Churchill that the enemy, in great force, were advancing under cover of a deep ravine about four hundred yards in my front and to the right. I Immediately put my small command in motion to meet teem. It should be borne in mind that my whole l'orce was the eight battalion companies of the 3d Indiana Regiment and Capt. O'Brien's battery of three guns?in all about four hundred ineu. On arriving at a narrow ridgn be infantry, from four to six thousand strong, supported by a body of Unoers. The infantry were coming up out of the ravine oti my left and forming in beautiful order across the ridge, leaving the lancers in the ravine. 1 immediately directed ( apt O'Drien to halt hie battery and get ready for the fray. The column wae halted, when the first company wae up with and on the left of the battery, and formed forward lulo line of battle. I rode in front of the column, and continued in front as the oompanieg were forming into line, and was much delighted to aeo the officers and men move forward in good order; coolness and courage were depicted in every countenance, By the time half the companies were in line, and while i was yet in front, the Mexicans opened their fire from their entire line. In a moment the left companies were iu line. I passed to the rear, and the lire was returned with promptness and good effect. Thus commenced the battle on the plain of IJiiena Vista. The distance between the enemy's line and my own was about oue hundred aud twenty yards About the time the actiou commenced, the enemy opened a tremendous tire from their battery of three heavy guns, posted to my left, and a little to the rear, which nearly onUladed my line, in this manner the hattie continued to rage for uearly twenty-five minutus, the firing being very severe on both sides, the lines of the Mexican infantry presenting one continued sheet of flame, i observed the Mexican line to bri nk and fall i hack several times, but their successive formations across the ridge enabled tlieui at onee to force the men back to their position, and keep them steady. I then formed the determination to lake position nearer the enemy, with the hope of routiug and driving theui fioni l hat part of I lie field, and for the purpose ol placing the lines out of the range of the enemy's guns, whioh had succeeded in getting the range so us to be doing some execution nearly every tire For that purpose I sent my aid to direct Capt O'Brien to advance his battery some fifty or sixty yards to the front, and to return to me to assist in passiug an order to the line to advance to the same point, lie went with the battery to its advanced position. I was at that moment near tne left of my linn, before my aid returned to me 1 was much surprised to see my line begin to give way on the right, and continuing to give way to the extreme left, not knowing at that time that Col Bowles had given an order to retreat; and it was several days after the battle (and not until after I had made my official report) before 1 was satisfied that the regimeul had retreated in obedieuce to an order given by Col Bowles. The order was not obeyed until it had been thrice repeated, as has since been proven iu a oourtof Inquiry, appointed to inquire Into the conductor the colonel. Lt. Col iiaddon and twelve other good witnesses nave testified to his having twice or thrice given the order before the line broke so uuwilling were they to abaudon their position. The "Id regiment occupied an important position?it was the key to that part of the field?and were unsupported by uny other troops. An evidence of their being iu a very hot place is that about ninety of tliem were killed and wounded before they retreated. They bad stood firmly doing their duty, as well as ever did veteran troops, until they hail discharged over tweuty rounds of cartridges at the enemy, killing and wounding some three hundred of them; and I have uo hesitation in saying that it it had not been for that unnecessary, unauthorised and cowardly order to retreat. they would not have left their position. 1 hesitate not to express my belief, that if my order to advance had been carried out and have taken the advanced position as intended, t hat we would have driven the eueiiiy from the ridge. Although the men retired in some confusion. the most of them soon rallied?say to the number of two hundred and fifty?and they continued to fight like veterans throughout the duy. Lieut Robinson. (my aid de-oatup) and Lieut. Col. iladdou, were very active in rallying the men. Major I ravens was ordered to proceed to the ranche and bring back such of our men as had gone in that direction, which was promptly done Capts Davis. Kimball. McRae. Briggs. Lieut. Spicely, (then in command of bis company in consequence of the fall of the gallant anil lamented Kinder ) Adj. Shanks aud Lieuts. iloggat. it ur well. Lewis Fonder. Benncfiel. Kunkle, Londermilk, Roach, Rice and Zeuor. with the most of the company officers were also very active in rallying their men. Capt. Sauderson and Lis Davis Hogan nn l Cayee,and several other officers, were wounded and had to leave the field; as also Capt. Dennis, who had fought like a hero with gun in hand, found himself unable from fatigue and indisposition to remain longeron tlie fluid I'aymaster Major Dix, having arrived on tliu field at this moment, was very active in assisting to rally our broken and scattered forces, lie seised the colors from their hearer, who was unable to carry thein longer, and handed them to Lieut. Kunkle. who carried tliem triumphantly throught the day. These colors, now in the possession of ( apt Sanderson, are well riddled with balls?one g4-pound shot, one 6-pound shot, and many musket halls passed through theui while they were iu the hands of this victorious young officer, and they could at all times be seen high above the beads of the Indiana brigade, moving to and Iro where it was ueccssary to meet and repulse the enemy Lieut reck, (now captain) of the rifle battalion, who had been compelled to retire from the inouotaiu to the plain, after the fall of his gallant old ( apt Walker, succeeded in rallying about tw enty men, and joining the id ndiana regiment, continued to fight gallantly throughout the day The severe loss in killed and wounded which the Id Indium regiment sustained in the action, will convey some idea of the danger they faced arid the tenacity with which they struggled: 107 of their uumber wvre killed and wounded. At or about (lie time of the retreat of my small command under that ill-fated order, the riflemen were compelled by superior numbers to abandon their position on the mountain side and retreat to the plain below The cavalry, which had been posted some distance in my rear, and out of rnnge of the enemy's hatter* to met mm clrcuinsthnoe* might require. either to advance upon the enauiy mu<l rut them olT Id case they should retreat, or to muocor my small force If they shuuld be compelled to fall hack, Instead of mlfordltiK uin the leant assistance. left their position without receiving one fire from the enemy mod made a precipitate retreat to the rear, alonft the foot of the mountain, pursued by a large body of lancers who succeeded In cutting off and slaughtering quite a iiiimber of our force*, uiont of them riflemen If they had made a bold etand and allowed the riflemen and the -id Indiana regiment to rally on them, altogether they would ha?e been sufficient to check the enemy before he had gained any coiteblerable advantage Afterthese successive and aim on t simultaneous retreat* of the different force* on the left. It remained wholly undefended, and the enemy, numbering aeveral iboiiannd. came pouring down from the mountain* and from the front, and formed in good order along the toot of the mountain and In the rear of the poaitlon at flr?t occupied by our force*. Honn after the retreat of the'id and while I war rallying them the MI**U*lppi regiment arrived on the field and in a most gallant manner engaged the enemy, but were compelled by Tartly superior number* to fall hack. Atthl* time the 3d Indiana regiment, under Col l,*n*. wa* ordered Into the fight, and. joined with the id | Indiana and Mississippi regiment*, composed s force I about one-fifth a* large aa the enemy, but sufficient i to engage thein with success Captain Sherman, with one gun of hi* battery, at thl* time joined us 1 h? whole moved towards the foot of the innnntatn and engaged the enemy Mere the artillery proved very effective. Thl* portion of the enemy * force became at length no closely pressed, and our artillery continuing to waste them away with It* destructive fire, and they being separated from the enemy t malu [eh a: foro.' would have in a short time bees compelled to surrender. when a white flag was seen on the field, and wo were ordered to cease tiring We did so; but tbe Mexicans continued to fire from their battery, thus covering tbe retreat of their fonst*. This flag was sent to the left wing from General Taylor, in consequence of Saute Anna having sent him a flag, which the General naturally supposed conveyed propositions either of truce or surrender. Hence the white nag on our part of the ? battlefield. This flag proved to be nothing moro than a stratagem of the Mexican General to extricate tbat portiou of his troops which he saw was absolutely in our power. During the delay occasioned by this interchange of flags, this portion of his army, so completely I iu our power, moved off, and made good their retreat to where the enemy's main force was posted We now moved and took a position to meet a large , body of lancers, supported by about WOO infantry ? , The Mississippi and a portion of the Od Indiana regl- \ meats were formed across a narrow rldgo. between two deep ravines, supported by one gun from (.'apt Sber- , man's battery, anil the other part of the -Id and all of ] the 3d Indiana regiments were on the brow of one of the ravines, and parallel to the same, the line being nearly in the shape of an L. and faced by the rear rank The charge was made on the left flank of the 3d Indiana ? now right, as they were faced. This charge, it is due to the enemy to say. was made most gallantly, and was as gallantly received by our forces, delivering our tire when they were within a short distance It proved most destructive to the enemy, felling many a horse and | his rider, breaking their columns anil putting them to | flight, leaving many of their companions dead on the Held. Soon after this successful repulse, the llelil on the left was completely cleared of the enemy's forces; and bearing a sharp and continued tiring on our right.and to the left of Washington's battery. I put my command in motion at double-quick time, for tho purpose of taking part in the conflict. This Are proved to be a severe action between the entire Mexican infantry, and the 1st and 3d Illinois and 2d Kentucky volunteers, which was Santa Anna's last and great effort. These forces bad been repulsed by overwhelming numbers, and were retreating in confusion, hotly pursued by thousands of Mexicans, who were loading and firing on our men at everv jump, when my command, consisting of the 2d and 3d Indiana and Mississippi Regiments, arrived within musket shot, which we did by coming up suddenly out of a deep ravine, and opened a destructive fire upon them. Finding themselves thus suddenly attacked. and from an unexpected quarter, they quit the pursuit, formed promptly into line, and returned our fire wj h considerable effect; but they in turn were compi lied to retreat under our well directed fire to the position which they had occupied in tho morning This was the last firing between the infantry of the opposing forces of that memorable day, although the cannou continued to play at intervals until dark. The battle on the plain was opened, us has been shown, by the 2d Indiuna Regiment, and the last musketry tired was by the 2d and 3d Indiana and the Mississippi Regiments. It should also be stated that our forces bad been under arms since the morning of the 32d. and remained upon the tield of battle until the morning of the '24th. I have here giveu a brief uud faithful acoount of the operations of tho Indiana brigade on the 23d of Feb.. as came under lay observation, and there was not one minute, from the time the battle commenced until the last gun was fired, that I was not with them. Captain O'Brien, who commanded tho battery of light artillery, posted on my right at the commencement of the battle, as well as Capt Sherman, who acted with us part of tho day. are deserving particular praise for their gallantry and good conduct?moving and discharging thetr pieces with all the coolness and precision of a day of ordiuary parade. The intrepid and honorable conduct of the 2d Kentucky and 1st and 2d Illinois volunteers, could not have been exceeded, and no commendation of mine could add lustre to the glory that should and would be theirs. There is enough of honor and glory for each mun who dill his duty at Buena Vista, and ha must be an uncharitable aud selfish American citixen who would knowingly wish to detract from any portion of that glorious lit'le army, with a desire to augmeut that of amy other corps at the expense of another The many gallant officers and men who did their duty on that day, should not suffer by invidious comparison. If I have neglected to particularize the conduct of the Arkansas and Kentucky cavalry, or to deflue their position on the fluid, it is not because I deemed them ot little inomeut or Importance, but forthe reason, that from tuo time of their retreat 1 had noopportuuily of seeing any thing of their movements. Tncv participated in the ram-he light, when the gallant Veil nobly fell ut the head ol bis column, lie. with the noble souiswho fell ou that day. should never be forgotten. The ambitiou of distinetion should never prompt us to deface any portion of the tablet of Fame which our country will erect to the honor of the actors in that battle, and the regular and volunteer army should he proud of it. as oue of the greatest epochs in our country's history It is due to the commanders of the different batteries | oi ngni artillery xo say mat inelr ouorta were most pow- I I erful anil efficient towards gaining the almost unpurralleled victory of Bueuu Vial a. lteady si ail tnnea to meat the euemy at fearful odd*. their gnus wasted tin in away with their fire in a handswmu uiauner. coin p. limn them to.retreat whenever coining within their range < ieui.
