[From the Vert CrusSan of Anahuac, Aug. 28 ] The prevailing rumor of . the day Is, that a letter received from Jalapa, by a person in this city, states that a division of Oen. Scott's forces have attacked K1 Pinon, to whioh point the Mexicans directed nearly their whole fbroe, thinking that it was a general attack?that in the meantime Oen. 8c >tt, with tne remainder of his troops, made his appearance in the rear of the enemy, haTlng marcned thither, passing through Ouad elupe' and capturing the city of Mexico?that the Mexican troops, so surprised, had laid down their arms, after a abort struggle We have not been able to find out who had received the letter above mentioned, nor how it came. We therefore give this as a rumor. There is, however, no improbability of its being true. N. B.?Since writing the above, we have learned that a letter ha? been reoeived from Jalapa, by a respectable person here, stating that the news of the capture of the city of Mexloo had been confirmed. [From th* Vera Crui Sun of Anahuac, Aug. 96.] We reoeived, through the politeness of a friend, tho Jalapa Bolelin it lat Noticiaa of the 'JOth. ltfl editorial column is, as usual, filled with rumors?for instance, that the people of the capital had formed into an army, and had sworn to die under the ruins of tho olty, before abandoning it!?that great enthusiasm prevailed ; that Generals Valencia, Salas and Lombardini were at the head of the government, and that Bustamente was expeoted to sucoeed them ; that American oldiers had gone over to the Mexicans ; that disunion existed in the rauks of our troops. The Holetin says, that Sr. Aburto, the guerilla chief who commanded the guorillas that attacked the detachment whloh returned here a few days ago, has re ported m* exploits to tne governor. It further lays, that the train, after haying been attacked at Cerro Gordo, retired to the Plan at the name time the guerilla* also retired. On the following day the train eemmeneed marching to Jalapa, and on tho evening (Thursday) had not yet entered that place. On the 19th, It van reported In Jalapa, that the guerilla! would attack our troop* near that place, and all the evening, the road for near a mile, was covered with men, women and ohildren, whom curiosity had attracted there Thia gave rice to iiring of cannon and musketry from our troops, aud the citizens succeeded in reaching their houses without receiving any injury The guerilla* are said to have numbered 340. The fire commenced at half past five o'clock, and lasted a very short time. At night tranquility prevai ed in the oity, and a party of mounted men from the train entered the oitv and passed through the principal street; at the same time guerillas were seen near by. The Bnlttin say* that the loss on the side of the guerillas whs hiiim.11 At 11 o'clock on the lllth, Mnjor Lally inquired of the alcalde wbetherthe citizens of Jalapa would commit hostilities against the Americans if they entered, or not. To which the alcalde answered, that the population was unarmed; but that a great number of guerillas being in the neighborhood, he oould not take the responsibility of thfir actions On the morulng of the 20th. the train of wagons and the troops entered the city The Holetin pays that the wagons are filled with sick and wounded. Yesterday, it was rumored in Vera Cruz. that Father Jarauta had attacked the train a short distance the other side of Jalapa; but that ho had been driven back by our troop* with loss on both sides.

' Tamsico, 98th August, 1847. ** , The correspondent, after staling that the communication with the interier is so shut off that nothing but rumors are beard, alludes to one which had been current . some three days in Tamptoo, viz that Hcott had attackr ed Cbapultepee, the tlrst fortified point on the road from Tacubaya to Mexico, that It had suffered three assaults, r and in all of them had repulsed him with censiderahle loss. The data of this occurrence is not mentioned, and ' it was looked upon as a vague rumor. The other rumor which was of any importance, was oqe communicated to the correspondent of La Patria by ^ Individual who arrived on the 27th from Huejutla, who said that on the , 16th or 16th, the first brigade of the American army I composed of some 3000 men, attacked the Mexican brigade which was between San Cristobal and Oaudalupe, > and was repulsed with a loss of MM) men on the American 1 side This brigade 1s a part of the San Luis Potosi forces under Valencia.

[Krom the New Orleans Picayune, Sept. 2.] e Tho mall brought by the New Orleans on Tuesday ( evoning was a large one, and we took the pains yesterday 1 to inform ourselves of the best opinions ouirent at Tam- i pico among commercial men as to the poaition of Gen. < Scott. A large number of letters were received, which ] make mention of him, and the tenor of them Is quite uni- I form as to the principal fact of Gen. Soott's presenoe in 1 the immediate vicinity of Mexico. _ 1 A letter irom a loreign house at Tamplco. dated the i 36th u\t . to their correspondent here, Bays that on the i 14th of August the two armies were opposite each other at El Penon. and that every moment thev were expectiug the result of a battle. The writers of the letters from Mexico exprett) great doubt whether a battlu and the fall Of the city would lead to a peace Another letter, also from a commercial house at Tampioo, dated the 37th August, which we have seen, says explicitly :?" There are mercantile letters in town to the 14th Inst, Irom the city of Mexico, (Jen Scott wan within three leagues of the city of Mexico, with from ten to thirteen thousand men, eighty-four pieces of artillery and one thousand wagons." Another letter, later than the foregoing and also from Tampico. says that on the 17th ultimo, (Jeneral Scott was within sight of the gates of the city. The letter refers for particulars to previous letters sent by a schooner, which has not yet arrived. The last letter which we shall mention is from an excellent source, and is dated on the 38th ult. It confirms the foregoing onfe in saying that letters to the 17th have been receive<1 from Mexico. These letters represent distinctly that on the 17th Uen. Scott was within three miles ?f the city, anil at that time operating upon the southwestern side of it, having met with some difficulties on the southeast side We cannot suppose that all these representations are deceptive. Tbey are from entirely distinct sources and from such parties as are likely to be accurately informed. We cannotdoubt. therefore, that (Jen. Scott was on the 17th ult. cautiously preparing to strike the decisive blow which was to seal the fate of the city of Mexioo. We are equally confident that ere this the blow has been struck, and that the city is in our possession. It Is to be regretted that the possession of the oity should not be decisive In conquering the peace se much to be desired ; but on this point we believe the opiniou is almost unanimous tnat the fall of the capital will by bo means suffice to bring the Mexicans to their senses The interests of the other States of .Mexico are by no means ho intimately connected with those of the federal district and capital, that the conquest if the capital involves their submission The force of artillery which (Jen. Scott is said to have with him, by one of these letters, is larger thi n we supposed he would take, but in the opinion of military men it is not exaggerated. Our readers may be interested by a few words upon the topography of tile country around Mexico?just enough to render intelligible what is said of the direction in which <Jen?ral Scott is operating.? Wo copy from a letter of Mr. Kendall a few lines quoted by him f rom a communication of one of our officers, a prisoner in Mexico, in regard to the routes to the capital. It was written on the Sth of July last : ? " i in" sirnngertt, ueience 01 uie .Mexicans is at f.l renon, three leagues from here and on the best road leading into the city; but the beet approach Is by Guadalupe or Cbapultepec, and the position Tor throwing shells better from either. The road from (iuadalupe branched about on? and a half miles short of the Penou, passes round the Inke of Teienco, and In thirty miles farther than the direct route There are two or three leagues of suft ground on this road, made no by the recent rains, which may occasion some difficulty to heavy carriages; but (rood judges think it may be on rcome The road to Tacubaya and <hapultep?c is good, and here is the supply of water for the city, which may be cutoff.'' Ward tells us that lhapul tepee is a summer palane built upon urock to the foot of which the waters of the lake of Teiouco formerly extended. Chapultepcc has been a strong military position from its commanding height. The road from Chapultepeo to Mexico. Ward describes as divided by an aqueduct, which separates the portion of it destined for oarts and mules from that intended for carriages and equestrians. The of the aqui duct is solid and oonsists of nine hundred arches Tacubaya Is a Tillage about four miles Iroin the gates of the capital southwest from Chapultepec. Both plaoes are laid down at south and west of Mexico, while K! IVnou lies nine miles off. east and a little south of the capital. All accouutn agree that the Mexicans hare abandoned all those defensible points on the road through the mountains which separate the valley of I'uebla Iroin that of Mexioo, and will rely upon the defences close about the city. Many infer from this that the resistance to our entrance into the capital will not be obstinate-that we shall take it without inflicting at the same time In blood and desolation a lesson upon the obstinate and misguided aation.

The train was composed of two arn>ulances, each drawn by four good horses, tit for the serrice in wtfloh they were employed, and nine wagons lrawn by naif broken down but still unbroken Mexican mules, with which It would ham been difficult for me to have fulfilled mv or Jers even if there had been no enemy to contend with. The commanding officer wan not mounted, and was under the mortifying necessity of digmounting a dragoon and taking a norne wheu olrcumstanoeB wen suoh that ho could not possibly perform bin duty on foot. Such wan the command with which my orders required me to traverse a country and para a bridge and fortification which no leu* than eight hundred men,supported by artillery, had heretofore attempted. f*hnd nut prooeeded four miles from camp, when it became necessary to throw out u part of my provision* ; and it was then only with the aid of my infantry. and the extraordinary exertions of the active uuu ruiuiriii master ^\ir. Dooieyj wno accompanied the train, that the wagons could be forced up the sand hills. I reached Santa Ke and encamped for the night. Th?> next morning I purNiied thu inarch, the enemy appearing on the tlank, hut evidently with no Intention of attacking us. A few shots were exchanged between them and Captain Kairchild's company. whp had left the road to give chase. I arrived at Juento del ltto, about nine o'clock at night, and encamped. Here I judged myself to be within nix miles of Major 1,ally's vamp. The next morning I directed Captain Kairchiid to detach an officer (Lieut. Henderson) and thirteen men. wiih orders to prooeed to Major Lally'a camp, and report my advance, provided he could prudently do so, and the distance did not exeeed six miles, but by no meaus to go beyond that distance, but to return and report the condition of the road to me. Thin command was accompanied by Dr Cooper of the army, and two of the Georgia volunteers I regret to inform you that I have not since heard of this detachment, and am ignorant of its fate. I pursued the march until about ten o'oleck, with difficulty getting the mules along, and at I'asa La lieja, whilst the train was on the bridge, and the troops were getting water, the enemy appeared in foroe in front, on the hill.Hud commenced a fire upon us; some shots were also fired from the rear. After th? necessary preparations were made, I detached Capt. Ilaile with his company through the chaparral to gain the (lank, and if possible their rear. This service was promptly and gallantly performed, whilst the command was ascending the hill. He gave them a Are, which put them to immediate (tight I ordered Lieut. Morrelle, of Captain kairchild's company, with twenty men mounted, to hold the horse* near the bridge until the train had ascended the hill. Tho rear, however, was not attacked at this place. We continued our march, dispersing the enemy before us, until dark ; when, as the train was passing a bridge within three miles of I'uente Nacional, the enemy opened his tire from the hills, within two hundred yards of the command, the balls generally ranging too high ; the lire was so promptly returned that they were soon driven from their position, and, 1 think, with considerable loss. Here, as I had previously intended, I ordered the troops to encamp. The wagons were blaced in a safe position, the white covers taken oR, the horse* placed under shelter, and every thing disposed for ai|Uiet night's rest, which my men so much required. At three o'clock next morning I had the men under arms, and detached Lieut. Wyche with part of his company through the chaparral, to gain a position on the hill side, to bf ready when the enemy should advance to the attack Just at day break they appeared on the hill, with drum bailing and firing inta our oarnp 1 did not return theli lire, out order'* 1 Opt Hallo with hi* company to pasi up the hill to the left of the road and gain their flank Tiiay continued their rtitulo for about twunty minutes when Capt.

Lieut Wyche had gained hid position, anii wan lying in wait, but they did not approach sufficiently near 1 held tho hill with my infantry till the train wai ready to mote. I wan now within about three mile* o I'uente Nacional. The enemy had attacked us threi timea Id force, aud always routed, without the loss on our part, of a man. The only loss sustained waa oqi horse wounded, and three muskets rendered unservicea bin by musket balls. It waa reported to me thi morning by the wagon master that one of th mule teams couU proceed no farther; I was com polled in consequence to destroy my tents, and leav one wagon The other mule teams 1 had no hope c getting much beyond I'uente Nacional, and had deter iuinod that if I did not find Major Lally near there, t destroy all the wagons and property, aud with four day* provisions in the haversacks, and the mail ami amnion! tion. and some light baggage In the ambulances, to joii him by forced inarches Kvery thing being in readiness 1 commenced the march about half-past nine in th morning Before this time I was fully satisfied that tin enemy occupied I'uente Nacional in forte. The track of unshod horses in the road left no doubt of that. Mj orders were positive; no dlacretion waa allowed to me and according to iny ideas of military service, I fel bound to proceed In the execution of the order, until il was proved, without the possibility of a doubt, that 1 could not be carried out. My force waa too small to de tach any part of it to endeavor to turn the position The Mexicans were appearing on my flank, and threat ened my rear. To reconnoitre waa useleaa ? nothing could be seen. I therefore determined to draw the ene ray 's Ore from'he forts and heights, and thua disoovei his strength and position I accordingly made my dls positions so a* to sacrifice the least possible number o iny troops With thirty picked men under the aom mand of Lieut. < honey, -Ith Infantry, extended to Mi] paces, I descended towards the bridge. This detauh inent was ordered to keep at least otie hundred yards ii front of the mounted men After the mounted men with some interval, marched Lieutenant Wyche'i company; next came the train, followed by (apiair Halle's company, who waa ?rder?d to clone on am. protect It, in oaae It ahould be charged. The real guard, oomraanded by Lieutenant Marrelle, of Cap tain Kalrchild's company, followed after Captau Halle's company. I halted the oommand on lh< slope of tha lilU; oontlnuing to advance myself with Lieutenant Chenny'a oommand, hoping tc draw the enemy's Are, without further inj troops All waa, however, still?nothing could be neeri I directed the advanoe to move upon the bridge?ordered up the main body, and took my positlou in person near the bridge, where I eonld direct the advance or order a retreat, as the one might prove practicable or the other necessary. The rear of the command had scarcely got In motion when the enemy opened their fire from the forts and heights with muskets, escopetes. and artillery, and showod themselves In such numbers and position, that I perceived at onoe that In passing the bridge they must neceaatrlly inflict upon me suoh a loas In killed and wo u?4ed, that It would be impracticable for me [ERA 1847. 1 i - rySflBl^HB^SBBii^S^? tie Dundrum Sands. remarks, to state that already the work has so far advanced, that she has been raised n? 1ms than four feet by means of the various artificial applications resorted to This, considering the immense weight of the body to be moved, and the little convenience afforded by the neighborhood of resorting to any extensive engineering I aid, Is wonderful; and, next to the magnitude of the operation, the simplicity of the means employed must strike the attention of every observer. to advance or retire. I therefore directed the fire to be returned and the retreat commenced; and withdrew my troops from under the fire of this strong place with the loss of only four men killed and one man and two horses wounded Oae of the ambulances wan quickly turned and gained the top of the hill; the other, In the act of turning, hail one of his horses killed, and could not be brought off. The mules were of course more unmanageable than ever, aud as soon au the enemy peroeived tu?i< wn wrro intuui^ mcjr uuiiuruir&i?u tueir wudio urn upon the train Half the mules were almost instantly shot down, and the teamsters compelled to abandon their wagons. The enemy now displayed a strong foroe outsido the fort, and was moving to gain our rear. I now moved off my command, which had been halted at the top of the hill, just beyond the effective range of the enemy's gun*, and abandoned the train which I could not possibly have brought off, nearly all the mule* having been wither killed or wounded; and to have blown up the amm unltion or saved anything from the wagons would have been to sacrifice men. which it wax now evident I had not to spare, and would have been compelled to leave my wounded, as 1 had not the means of transporting them. All the property, as well as the personal baggage of ihe officers, was lost, and some despatches which I ordered ( apt llail" to keep in his trunk as the safest plaov, were also lost. The mall intended for the army was. however, stved, aud the only wounded man brought from the field The enemy's force occupying the forts, I oould not estimate with any degree ot accuracy; it was certainly several times my own. and there was also a considerable force outside. Nothing was left now for me to do but te force my way through the enemy In the rear, and return by rapid marches to this place. The enemy appeared on every side during the day, and I was compelled to pro< ceed with the greatest oaution, always holding one hill until my Infantry gained possession of the next in fromt, 1 by a fatiguing march through the chaparral.

He selected his positions with judgment, and I frequently saw from the front his men charging and firing upon the guerillas who were annoying the rear.

The accounts from Now Orleans show a most deplorable state of things, so fur as the health of the city is concerned. Our correspondent writes under date of the lit * Inst , to the following effect. We have now arrived at that fearful period in the history of the epidemlo, when it becomes necessary to throw off restraint, and to proclaim the fact that New Orleans is suffering severely from the ravages of yellow fever, ship fever, and other cemplieated and oontagious diseases. There are, at pre- . sent, at a low calculation, live thousand persons In thia city prostrate with various diseases. Our citlsens have most nobly responded to the calls made upon them by tb? different charitable associations, but there are stlU very will exist la a large city like ours, And which, without the most aotlve and scrutinizing oare, will either entirely escape ol*erv*tion,or. on account of the crowded state of the hospital*, fail to gain admittance and obtain the relief provided by the public. 1 am uow writing within the sound of audible poverty and despair, with th* groans or the sick and dying ringing In my ear*. Ood grant thai it may never again fall to my lot to b? thus surrounded to experience the sensations which 1 now endure. Nix gentlemen, myself among the number, hava formed a guard for the purpose of ascertaining the true state of the epidemlo amongst us, and you may rely upon my statement, that on Sunday last (the 'JBth ult ,) one hundred and forty-six burials took plaee within the olty of New Orleans and Its suburb*. Should the present weather continue, and the number of unacollmated parsons now here remain, the (Jol of infinite mercy alone knows what the result will be. The number of Individuals now here, who have determined to brave the pestilence, is estimated at twenty thousand, many of whom could leave, as welt not, were they so disposed ; but the ail-mighty dollar keeps them, and they remain exposed to all the prevalent dangers of contagion and death. Although business is at a stand, we have a larger unaccllmated population than we have had at any previous time, and new subjects are continually arriving, so that with the emigrants from foreign countries and the volunteers dally arriving and departing to and from I Mexico, the fever is not likely to want victims till frost cow?e to deaden Its malignant powers. Amongst the emigrants, poverty appears to be the prominent feature ?f th_l, ......I.Wh.t nlfn --- J with them remain* to be seen. There la as much philanthropy amongst ua as in other cities, and I think I could with propriety Hay there in more benevolence than la ordinarily exhibited In such Urge communities; hut, of course, the best of us are limited In our action by our abilitiM. and we who remain here can but think, that It la the duty of those who Uy to the north in the aumnier f'er safety, but who return to New Orleans to make money during the winter, we oannot hut think It Is the duty of such to contribute something for the relief of the destitute. Money forwarded to the Mayor, for thia purpose, would be properly applied. You ran form no oorreet .opinion of the actual number of deaths from the reporta published daily. Kor every ten deaths reported at the Charity Hospital, there ate ninety peraona who dls unknown, or at any rate unreported There are now In Doctor Luxenburg'a Hospital 6'JO patients; in Howard Aasociation JHO; Samaritan's 147; Doctor Dalton's Infirmary 69; Doctor MacKeys 167, and our own little guard has in charge 1m. of whom no report is known except among ourselves. These few privata infirmaries will give but an imperfeat idea of the many other associations, (of which In a future number I will give some report,) many of which are under the control of the masonic and odd fellows fraternities, ail of whom are dally going about doing good: and although many members are themselves unaecllmated, still they appear to have given themselves up entirely for the welfare o others Here the rich and poor unite, vie with each other in administering aid and comfort. May thalr exertiona be crowned with suocesa.
