THK PEACE COSt.MISSION'SIW. ?! [From the New Orleans 1'ioayum, Sept. 0 ] D Tacubava, Aug. '29, 1847. The poaoe commissioners met again yesterday, and *' at a point nearer this plaoe. Nothing positive in re- ' lation to the proceedings of this second meeting has 3< transpired?some say that everytHog want on smoothly, others say not, which is tolerably stroag proof that out iitLle Is knewn one way or the other in re- H In Hon to thu deliberations. The new commissioner, T llernardo Couto, was present, as was also Atristain.? Thn latter is represented as a tool of Mackintosh's; but if ho can ao anything towards bringing about a peace, w that makes no difference. They say that In the city oc they indulge in the hi pe t)|at the aommissloners will lii n^rtte upon the Nueces as a boundary. This 1s carrying l*i trie > t alu-* and stones a little too far. " (Jive them an di ii.oh and thej'll take an ell" is applied to many people s? in the world?glre a Mexican an inch and he'll take at C least seven miles and a half. c( THE KI I.I.KD, WOUNDED AND MFSSTNO. [Prom ll.e New Orleans Delta. Heptemher 9 ] The following mournful list shows at what Immense C( sacrifice thj latu glorious victories of Gen Soott have 01 hern ?..hi?ved. No less than 1017 of our brave soldiers ?! were billed or wounded on three bloody fields. Among ? them are some of our best officers, who in their eagerness to gain laurels and incite their men to deeds of B( prowess, li??e exposed their persons to conrtant peril ni and injury It is. however, a sonree of some alleviation u to the public grl?f, to observe that the proportion of ** killed to th? wounded is smaller in these late severe sn- ~ EH'Bi-Tua than in our previous battles. Weobssrvs. however. that ui4t>y of the woanded are severely ao, ana thr nnmWrof deu'a* of those wounded, ftom tho natur? of lbs un mostly used by the Mexican?, (heavy ' artillery,) most be very great. j: Iu another column we give some particular notloeaof ? the principal officers among the killed and woanded.

ACCOUNTS 11Y THE MEXICANS TilRMSRLVES. [From the Washington Union ] It is amusing to sen the aecounta which are given by ^be Mexicans themselves of the great battlo which wae fouiht near the walls of Mexico. We are indebted for Lhe two following letters to a gentleman of this city ? They were forwarded by an offlcerof distinction at Tampico, who obtained the Spanish copies at that place.? They were addressed to .Mexicans at Tainpico?the oue writteu from th < capital itself on the 21st August, and the other at ilu'jatla. between Mexico and Tampico, written on the 'ititb. They are sufficiently piquant, and very Interesting in the views which they preseut of the progre-s and result of the battle of Cburubusoo. City or Mkxico, Aug 31. I am In the blankest of humors; I am overpowered by the most profouni melancholy; the whole has gone to the devil. The Vankees, tho hateful Yankees, have triumphed, because our inefficient generals cannot even command four soldiers. Generals Valencia and Santa Anna have beon routed successively at the stone quarry of San Augel, and at the f hurubusco bridge; and Scott, with his ar?y, occupies the hacienda of Portales, distant Ave miles from here. That gang of miscreants would havo oconpied the capital to-day,Wut Gen Santa Auna.ln order.au it is reporttn nrovunt auoh lunnmlnw lo th? natWtn *r% h-w? the hateful flag of the atars waring over the palsoe of the Montesumas, kit* deoidad on hearing Hi<? propoaals for peace from the United "tat?? commission! r, and a* a preliminary, to morrow they will discuss the terms of an armistice The commissioners on the part of our government are Generals Mora, Villamil and l^uijano. Malediction and etejnal hatred to the perveised, who have usurped the title of leaders of the nation only to head revolutions they promoted for their own aggrandizement, and to demoralize all classes of society. A treaty of pea?e appears to tne Inevitable, under the most shameful conditions to us; for. without an army of public spirit, which has been deadeued by olvil dissensions, and In the face of treasonable selfishness shown by the authorities of some of the States, what advantages is it possible to obtain from a proud enemy who is conscious of his power' I will not continue discussing this point, because I feel my soul is burning with despair. Poor country ! She has been buried in the nitre by those of her sons that he most distiogu^hed. Hum ati.a, August 30, 1847. I have learned the following from letters to the 31st, received from Mexico :? At diwn on the 19th, the enemy made false attaokson the farm of San Automto and on CburnbuKco, which is supposed they did ao as to execute their real mameuvre, which, as was afterwards seen, was to advance ou Tacubaya. This was done by sending their troops along the thickets and ravines betwuen Tlalpam and that town Valencia wss not taken una* ires, who, vou will recollect, wsi in rharife of that post, and wan timely advisei by his explorers of the advance of the eneuiy. a nil therefore, received them with a terrible tlra of artillery and musketry. When the enemy found they were diseovered, they took the direotion ot the height*, where our batter.es were placed, sustaining an active Ore from their infantry, aided by sor-.e artillery shots, with the object of succeeding iu getting up ; but every time they attemnted it. tiiev W"r?. i b< eked and disordered bv our tror |.?, ?u l Immediately ilireatenud to charge with the bayonet, which mi liever (lone. They, therefore, retreated four time* to the ravine. where they kept their referee, nod whence th'-y returned organised and reinforoed The day was i-|?> tt. lu this manner. It is oaloulated the enemy loot in t.i. Ir attempts more than one thousand men. Valeur.it repeatedly asked for .aseinlance, or to call the altuiitlon of the enemy, that he might flank them, but waft always answered iu the negative. Notwithstanding. at 3 P.

In the early part tf the night, Ueneral Santa Anna inarched t? < hurabusco, and the enemy, who knew this movement, sent the greater part of tlmlr force to the rear of Valencia's ; and as this general had no Information of the withdrawal of General Santa Anna.slackened Ills vigilance in that quarter. And at the dawn tf the 20th he found himself hemmed in by tue enemy, who reinforced with iioOO men, charged along the ravine with uoh fury that they were not intimidated at our soldier* sherglng them with the bayonet; on the contrary, when our in,ops advanced, theirVfell upon the artillery, ol srhlch tliry possessed themselves, along with the auiiuu aition, trains, fcc ? dispersing 800# who remained.

In two or three days, when the whole army ivas Id motion, they could bo seen from the front, itretched out over a distance of seven or eight miles ? On the 18th, the Ueueral reached a small town called San Auguslln. about twelve miles south of the city, the ending division having arrived there the day before.

A. In pausing to the front, I lound that a troop which had been placed as a picket had gone forward; aud as 1 oame up with it, it mado a turn in the road which brought it ri in full view of the enemy's battery, which opened upon f< theui. The first tire killed Capt. ,Thornton, mangling ii his body in tho most horrid manner. The ball, a sixteeu li p iunder, atUrwards struck the road, aud litrrally cover- li od ine with mud and fragments of stone, one of which c made a slight bruise on uy right thigh. A guide i was knocked from his horse within Hire feet of mo, with a shocking wound in the head by a pleco of stone J It is thought he will recover, but with the loss of an eye <] The reoonuoistance was continued right aud left, with I some hopes of storming the battery that afternoon ; but o night and tho rain oanie on, and It was given up. Very p early the next morning, 1 discovered from the top of the house in which we were quartered in Han Augustiu, a K large body of the eueicy, some W,00lt or 16.01HI. on our h left., about three miles distant. The General had order- ti ed reoonuoissances in that direction towards Han Angel, h whom I reported to him He immediately ordered two o divisions forward under Pillow aud Twiggs, and followed t soon after himself. The enemy were found in an en- o trenched camp, at a place called Contreras, with 20 pie- u cm of artillery, some of them very heavy siege pieces.? The attack commenced at noon, and the tiring continued incessantly until d.irk, when It ceased on both sides, our t troops maintaining their ground,and occupying a village o near by. During the afternoon we watched the differ- p ent movements of ou' troops with the most fearful anx- f iety, aud could plainly see one ot our columns resist m t cbaigu of a large body of cavalry, and the (MCJ failing from their saddles and taking to their heelrf, or rather t to their horse's heels. During the whole of the light,we v could see on the right a body of at least ten thousand ? infantry, aud cavalry In reserve, toward* tho city : but I; they bad not the courage to advance, although Santa t Anna himsrlf was said to be there. Tht att.u k was or- e dered to be renewed at 3 o'clock next morning, and the li General returned to Hau Augustin. He left at an early a hour, taking with hint (Jen. Worth's and one-half of his division as a reinforcement; but en route he was met ( by an ofllcer, who reported that the batteries had been a carried by our troops in m most gallant style, Ctl. Kiley j leading the assault. As lie approached ttie si ens of action t it seemed most incredible how ear men got over the p ground to the attack. It was over immense mas*e? of lav?, ti thrown up in the roughest, sharpest, possible shapes, and ti covered with dense brushwood. Streams lutd to be crossed and deep ravines ; and most of them having passed almost incredible thai tliey should be able to 4rlve ilou- '> ble their number# from a battery of :|.'i henry gun*.

I c will not stop to describe the scene on the Held of battle. " On leaving it the road was literally strewed with dead v Mexicans, arms, broken oarrlagos, fan. In passing a P bridge, 1 looked over and saw the bodies of e.t least twen- 11 ty, piled one on tho other, and the bank of the stream ' was strewed with thorn, aud it was some distance before we got out of sight. doing on, wo came to a courch, in ' which were conllued TiHi prisoners.
