Authentic Details BY THK Steamer Galveston at Ndw Orleans. &c?j HiCi) Aifi [From tbe New Orleans Pioavune. Aug 20.] The utoainahlp UaiY??ton Capt. Harllanii, arrived yesterday from Vera Crui, having touched at Tampico, Brazon and (.'aW?4tnn. She left Vera Cruz on tne l'ith iUHt By this arrival we are in uOAae?*(0n of qdfloe* from p??V,lu |h. i.lh ,?f A,...... ?mV U'f-r l)i>n w. had before received Our letter* were brought through from Puebla to Vera Cruz by a courier despatched exclusively for this office. The new* 1* important. (Jen Scott was (till at Puebla on the 6th Inst., but the army was to take up the line of march the next day for the city of Mexico. Gen. Twiggs' division leaving on the 7th, Gen Quitman's on the rtth, Gen. Worth's on the 9th. and Gen. lillow'g on the 10th, Col. Child* remains in command at Puebla. Gen. Pierce arrived at Puebla on tne 6th iost.? not on the 9d inst., a* some of our contemporaries stated, lie lost not a single man on his march, notwithstanding " another severe battle with the guerillas." 'I he most agreeable news by this arrival is the escape of Major Gaines und Passed Midshipman Rogers from the city of Mexioo. an^thelr safe arrival at Gen. Scott's head quarters. They were of course not under parole when they left Mexico. The particulars will bo found in the letters below from Mr. Kendall. His letters mention an affair between Capt. Ruff, of the rifles, with his command. and a Mexican guerilla party; in which the latter was entirely routed. Mr. K , also writes us of the death of Lieut. Hill, of the 3d dragoons, and Dr. Hamner, of the South Carolina regiment. From Vera Crus, too, the news is important. The train which left Vera Crus the evening of the 6th inst , has been attacked about twenty-four miles from Vera Crux; iudeed, attacks commenced shortly after leaving that citv. The escort to the train was under oommand of Major Lallv, of the 9th infantry, Col. Wilson being down with yfcllow ferer. We have confidence that the following is a more correct report of the principal affair than that of the Sun of Ji'iahuac. It Is from an officer of iutelligonce, and is to the latest date. Camp at Ukioue, 24 miles from Vera Cruz,) August 11. ltM7. ) '-The oommand under Msjor Lally was met by the guerillas yesterday in foroe, at Paso Oneja. one mile in the rear of this camp, about 3 P. M. Attacks were made in front, in rear, aud upon the centre of the train, and they were repulsed at all points, aud we advanced to this encampment. Our force was well distributed for the defeuce of the train, the force in the rear being nearly as long an in front, and a guard of two companies i n thi* uiu.?A..a ?r>.l 4lunl/u? .,lnnn .irl*. rv# the traiu throughout. But our loss is severe, two officers being severely wounded Capt James II. <'alwell, of the V'oltiReum. and Capt. Arthur C. < uinmins, of the Uth infantry, the former a native of Maryland, the latter of Virginia. Yen men, non-commissioned officers and privateit, are wounded. None were killed outright. One hus died Hiuce, and some perhaps dangerously wounded.? Hopes are yet entortalned for the recovery of the two captains, if we can send them to Vera Cru* I believe that the commanding officer has sent to Vera Crufc for a detachment of horse to esoort ambulauces to take back the wounded wbioh may accumulate by the time we reach the National Bridge. We a:e 1,000 strong, with a traiu of seventy wagons, and the troops all raw and comparatively uninstructed Out I think we will make our way through securely; perhaps lighting our wav fur uiauy (lays. Wo are about twelve miles from the National Bridge, and we move on a few miles to day." The Sun says eight men wero killed on our side, aud that Captain Loy ell's Georgia mounted men killed twenty-live of the enemy in a chnrge. Uovernor Wilson immediately ordered up reinforcements. Captain Kairchild's company started at ouce to go up, and Capt ijeefuldt's. of the Louisiana battalion, were also ordered up. A gentleman who oame over in the (ialveston saw the latter leaving the city. Capt. Besancon's company was absent on a scout when the news reached Vera Cruz of the danger to the train When he returned, he would bo ordered up, and other foroe* were to be sent forward The verbal reports are that the American* had thirty men wouuded in the skiruiiah and as many horst s killed It Is not to be concealed that serious fears are felt for the salety of this train. The Mezioans have made extensive preparations to harrass it, and out it off if possible. We are informed that the number of Major's oommand falls short ot one thousand men rather than exceeds that number. The Mexicans are un| der the impression that the train takes up a million of dollars in specie?so says the BoUlin of Jalapa of the 8th inst., which has been received at Vara Crux. The Boletin prays Ood that the guerilla* and national guard together may succeed in cutting off the train. The National Bridge is the point where the decisive action is expected. There was a report In Vera Crus, that the guerillas had destroyed a part of the bridge and erected defensive works there. The latest number of the Sun of Jtnakuac sets down the number of the guerillas at 4000. Led on by the hope of a rich booty, they raurtt not bfi expected to (leftist ftom their attacks no long as a chance remains for them. Two men belonging to the train lagged behind on tho second day'* march from Vera Cruz, and were rnt off by the Mexicans. One of them wu horribly mutilated, both leg* being cut off below the knee, lie died Inimi'dlately. The other w?s no severely wounded that he died shortly after be wat found by Capt. BesaD^on's men. The wounded man just had time to give a description of the murderers, three in number, and the course they had taken. They were pursued and caught, and at once an example was made of tbem. Captain Kairchiid returned from a scout on the 9th inat, after having made a circuit of about thirty miles At a small town called I'aso de Toro, he found secreted in a loft some fifteen or twenty mi am tai and as many sabres, which were destroyed. Suspicions induced him to examine some trunks in a bouse, in which be found several hundreds of cartridges wrapped up in women's clothcs. There were but few men about at the ranchos, but at almost every place they learned that the guerrileros had gone up towards the National Bridge. A detachment from Capt. llesancou'tf company, thirtyfive in number, lert on a scout on the nth inst. under Lieut. Waters. The .Sun of the 11th Inst . announces that a private of Besancon's company was killed the evening previous by the Mexicans. His name was Kran cis I-oring. a Canadian by birth. We regret to read in the Sun. of the dnath of I,ieut. Uuiot. Adjutant of the LouUiaua Battalion. He died on the !)th Inst., after an illness of only three days, and was buried with military honors the evening of the same day Col. Wilson, who was to have commanded the troops that accompanied the last train from Vera Crux, is convalescent,and considered entirely out of danger. The reports as to the health ot Vera Crux are more favorable In private practice there was very little fever. but a great deal of sickness in the hospitals. The Spanish Minister resident in .Mexico is expected in VeraCruz about the '26th inst , on his way to Spain Letter* from Vera Cruz nay he will be escorted by a body of Mexican lanceri. The Sun assignn a reason for his departure, in which we place no confidence. The whole story is rather apocryphal We are sorry to see in the Sun of Anahuar that another courier iu the employ of the Americans has been shot at Antigua. The following passengers came over on the Oalveaton :? Dr. Kverett, Lieut. Hart, Mr Blauton, U.S. N.,Mr. sB. Elliott, U. S N., Messrs Lartegne, Hush, Kioe, 8eely. Wager, O Kesket, J. W. Cleal, J.

Intelligence has just been received that Captain Ruff, with a squadron of cavalry, has given the guerillas a severe drubbing at Han luan de los Llanos General I'. F. Smith, learning on his arrival at Ojo de Agna, that a partv of these gentlemen of the road had a rendezvous at the former plaoe,despatched Capt. R with orders to surprise them if possible. The expedition was successful in every way?the guerilla* were surprised before they had time to reach their horses, aud at once took refuge in a church and iu two or tbrru stone houses adjoining Into these our men at occe charged, the Mexicans roooiled in dismay, and after a short struggle were entirely defeated, with a loss of between 30 and in killed aud some AO wounded.

It Is said he came off with the knowledge, and by permission, of hi* surety We have a rumor this morning, and a startling one, to the effuot that Santa Anna Is moving upon this city with his entire army and fifty pieces of cannon. The news la too good to be true, snd no one credits It. 1 believe I have already mentioned the death of Lieut. Hill, of the 3.1 Dragoons, and that he was hurled with military honors. Dr. W.

Just before his death he embraced the Catholic religion, and received the absolution of the church I learn that a portion of his family In the United States are of the same faltb.

Last night about 10 o'clock, I Major came in. passing safely through the entire CM- xloan lines.

On Tuesday morning the officers, with three exceptions above named, started in the Ktage for Toluca. aud on the same night Major Gaines, acnoicpnnled by a truity Mexican guide, set out for this place, and after being once In the hands of the guerillas, and running many narrow risks, besides, succeeded in coming through in safety He inf rmed Lombardinl distinctly, through the interpreter, a brother of Almonte, that he should not give his parole for Toluca, and anticipated being arrested and put undpr guard at once; but not thinking, protiuhlv Km WltlWI uttwmnf n aunana Ku wua u 11nauii .la part.

The jealousy and obstinaoy of bis enemies prevent his openly avowing himself in favor of peace, and he is shrewd enough to know that the next battle must result against him. Thus uis own downfall Is stariug him in the face turn which way he will, aud he is now awaiting some revolution ot Fortune's wheel to extrieate himself. lils utter downfall would seem inevitable did not his past history afford abundant evidences that he has risen above every speoles of reverse, and so fruitful is he in expedients that he may still rise triumphantly from the whirlpool of diOlcuities by which he is surrounded. Sluoe i commenced this letter (ien. Scott's orders for the march of the army have been Issued. The division of (ien Twiggs is to move on Saturday, the 7th instant, that ?f (ien.

In the meantime Col Clillds remains in Puebla as military and civil governor, and Capt De Hart as lieutenant governor, while an efllcient garrison, In addition to the sick and those who are convalescing, will be left behind. (luu bcott himself will probably accompany (ien (|ultman's division, and the entire army will concentrate at Home point this side of the capital. The order for a move has been received with rejoicing by all?the heads ot the oommlssary's and quarter In almost curtain that an abundance of money can be obtained. No man in the United Htatos could believe tor one moment the straits to which our army has been driven for want of cash, especially after reading thu statements made in some of our papers. Here in Pueblait Is given as a faet past all gainsaying, that since April last the commissary's department alone has sent to Washington for near $400,000, with which to meet current cxpens?s. and of this amount not a cent has been received. The exertions of Captains Irwin and Urayson, combined with those of Air. Hargous, have effected much, however, and through them a large depot ot provisions has been got together here, sufficient for the army for months. Puemla, Mexico, Aug. 0, 1847. Gen. Pierce arrived this morning?his men, though muoh jaded and travel-worn, making a most soldierly appearance. The 9tb regiment, in particular?the New England regiment, commanded by Col. Hansom?attracted much nttention from the crowds assembled to see the new levies enter. Notwithstanding all the stories told In the Mexican papers, it teems that (ten. Pierce has brought his command through without losing a man, and with but three or four wounded, lie was attacked several times by guerilla parties, yet by prompt measures succeeded in of Captain llodflxh, who commands on* of the New Kngland companies ? a regular lumberman mid bridgebuilder, froDi " way down in the State of Maine " Arrived at I'lan del Klo, what did they find but that the bridge bad been destroyed; yet Capt.

A Yankee will be a Yankee, transplant him a* you will. The officers with ( apt. Ruff, at the time he routed the guerillas, at Han Juan de los Llanos, were Lieutenant Walker, of his own company, and Lieutenant Hawes, with a company of the 'id dragoon*. The defeat was complete. W'e have a hundred conflicting rumors from the city of Mexico. One is to the effect that Valencia Is coming out with 1*2,000 men to attack us in front, while Alvarez, with 8000 I'tntos makes a lemonstration in the rear; an other report has it that Santa Anna has disarmed 3000 of the Uuardia Nacional, having discovered that they were hatching som* plot against him ; while still another report would have it tbat a regular revolution had broken out against the brnemrrito of his country, and that all wu " confusion worse confounded" at Mexico at last dates. Then, again, we have it that I'uebla is 'o be attacked Immediately after the army has left, the garrison put to the sword, and the citizens severely mulcted and robbed for the good treatment they have elven the Yankees. For any one of these rumors, there 4p< probably not the least shadow of foundation ; yet as the Mexicans feed themselves upon the hopes or what they should do, they have given them circulation as facts, and very likelv one half of the community believe tbi.-m. There can be little doubt of one thing?that Santa Anna is compassed about with difficulties, and that although at present he " rides upon the whirlwind nn<l directs the storm," theobstinacy of Congress and the jealousy and stubbornness of such men as Valencia hedge him in with a perfect wall of opposition A long way the eurewaent nuu most lar m-eing roan urnonf; mem,ma may HtlU be enabled to keep the upper hand.aod nuntain himself ii. such power an a broken down and fallen government 'lay afford any one.
