Diy arrived at New Oileans on the 25th ult., with the most important intelligence yet received from the Bern of war. We exirnct from the New Orleans Picayune of the 26th ult., received by the overland express for the A'etr York Herald, the following particular* i? The Arco Ins of Vera Cruz, had received let tera from Mexico, under date of the 9ih, editing thrtt on the 7th the Mexican commissioner* declared that the propositions made by Mr. Trift were inadmissible; in consequence of which General Santa Anna convoked a council of genera's, who decided that notice should be given to General Scott that the armistice was at an end, and appointed the 9ih for the recommencement of hostilities. On the 6ih ol September, General Scott nddn-ssrd a 1' itrrioSmta Anna from Tacubaya, ananai n<v li i m t\C liuvimt ??iai .??.?! 1 1 ? i V.V.UOI i'imi t'? no* ui| 'iwiuiru or?riBi niwtirr j ot the armiaiice, one of which was that not allowing the American army to obtain supplier from the citv of Mexico. General Scott dent <ndfd?ui explanation, and concludes as follows s? ?] hereby formally notify yon, that if I di not rorelrs the most complete satisfaction on all thtrt points, befor* tirrlre o'clock to-morrow, I nhall consider thearmistioe as terminated from that honr. To this letter General Santa Anna replied at considerable length, and with great severity. He accused General Scott of having violated the terms of the armiatice in refusing to al'ow flour, from the mills in the vicinity, to he brought in.lo the city, and says that the American wagons were driven out of the city on account of the objectionable conduct of the officers accompany.1 a -i-- i - ' I in* iiirin, c?nnia jinnu m?o marges *ren^rai Scott with having narked the Mexican town* in 1J>* vicinity of the capital, and robbed and dciecrattd the churches, and itealinf; and deetroying articlee held tarred by every Mexican. He concludes h? follows:? 1 flatter my??lf that jonr xoeUency will be convinced, on calm reflection, on the weight of my reaeotw, but If by misfortune yon rhould >?k only a pretext to deprive ] the ftrft city of the American Continent of an opportu- i nlty to free the unarm oil population of the horror* of war. there will be left me no otheT mrann of mlvation but t< repel foroe by force, with the derision and energy which my high obligation* impose upon m*. On th?* 7th, General Ilerrera, as Commandant of the city of Mexico, addressed the clergy, exhorting them to exert all their influence to incite the people to arm themselves, and prepare to renal the American army. On the 8th, General Scott attacked the Mill tiel Rey or King'* Mill, in the immediatn vici-; mty of Chapoltepec, ami, according to the liianodtl (tohierno, and the JioUtin, published at AtJisco, near Puebla, our army wna repulsed, after a short conflict, in which we last about four hundred in killed, nnd troru aix to seven hundred in wounded, and fell back upon Tacubaya.

We translate the sut-J lined letter from Jalap* to the Jlrco Irii, without vouching tor lta oorrectnaaa:?' When Gen.

Worth, wbo aooordlng to the aooounta had not been seen or heard from, the following day at Tacubaya." The next account* we have from the capital, come IB a letter to the Jircu hit, dated the 10th ioat., of which t&e following is an extract:?'" 'i ha Mexican government Iiaa taken three hundred thoueand dollar*, whioh were being aent by a commercial hovM to the enemy'* camp. Ueneral Smith ha* expired.

ThU bring* u?, ftey* the Picayune, to the I3thj but at what hour of th? day tbe letter was rioted, we are not informed. Of tbe eventful denouement, we have only a brief account; but uuffloieut to assure us that the Vmericans have achieved a brilliant triumph, and that oar army is revelling in tbe Halls of the Montexumas. The only reliable account we have of the last struggle b?lbro the capital, is in a letter addressed to Mr. D:a mood, our Collector at V>ra Crux, from Orixaba. a* 'ollowe "Orizaba, Sept. 19, 1947.-1 have the honor to inform you that an express arrived bwro this oveningfrom Mas ioo, which brings intelligence that General Soott wm Id the olty of Mexico.

Your friend, fco." A letter, from a creditable source, confirms all that ia said In the above, and only disagrees with it In stating that the city waa carried bj assault on the 14th. The Sun ef Jlnuhuar has It on the 13th, tho heights and forks of Chapoltepec, were carried?on the 14thand 16th the city was bombarded, and that a part of our army entered it on the morning of the ItHh. the balance remaining at Cbspoltrpec. | |ln regard to the American loss, the Picayune says? As to our loss belore the army entered the city, we have nothing aulbeutlo. We fear this new victory has not h?en achieved without gTeat loss of life. The Mexican Recounts show that active hostilities commenced on the ftb, and were continued with more or less activity until our army took possession of the city. A passenger by the James L. Day informs u* that it was reDorted amonir the Mexicans at Vera Crux that We lost 1700 mm in killed and wounded, but he oould tract1; to no authentic source. Another passenger estimate* Gen Scott's loss at a quarter to a third of his army. We now come to wbat has beea looked for with so much anxiety, the basis npon which Mr. Trlst and the Mexicans proposed to negociate?from which it would seem tbat there was no disposition on the part of the Mexicans to treat from the first.

The James L Day arrived here last evening from Vera Crux Important news has been reoeived by her.

Of the Mexicans, Oeneral Bravo was killed. Santa Anna was wounded.and retired with his shattered foroes to Guadeloupe, about twelve miles from the city. The reports are, that Oeneral Scott lost, in killed and wounded, from one thousand to seventeen hundred men. Tcicgrtpnie lieipucn, mo ;i. PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 2, 1847. The Atw Orleant Picayune of the 25th contains news from Vera Cruz and Tampico to the 13th of September, by merchant vessels. There are a great many contradictory reports relative to l>en. Scott's position, but the opinion is universal that he i9 safe. The steamer McKim left Vera Cruz on the 10th for New Orleans, but a severe norther coming on, sooa after her departure, considerable anxiety is felt lor her safety. There are several army and navy officers on board. There were large numbers of American troops it Vera Cruz, and the city filled with supplies. The Sun of Anahuac states that Major Lally's train had leftJalapa; he hud sustained verv lit tie loss in his engagements j Lieut. Twiggs waB the only officer killed. There is nothing relative to either liesancon or Henderson being with Major Lally. [Our previous accounts were, we believe, that Henderson had been killed.?Herald.] General Valencia has published a defence of his conduct at Contreras; it is ugainst .Santa Anna; lays the whole blame on the latter for not sending reinforcements. The i'ensacola Gaxrttc of the 26th gives the news brought by the Osceola. It states that the Mexicans agreed to cede California as indemnity to our citizens, but refused to entertain the proposition of making the Rio Grande the boundary line. An officer of high rank in the navy, writes from Vera Cruz under date of the 16th ult., that the news that day, wus that the Americans had recommenced hostilities, und entered the city ol Mexico. Another letter states that (it-o. Worth was dangerously wounded; that the Mexicans loss in killed and wounded was two thousand and live hundred ; that on the 10ih, our trooi'S held one half of the city and the Mexicans the other; and that the battle wa* still going on. Telegraphic Despatch, No. 4. Philadelphia, October 2, Night. The James L. Day, from Vera Cruz, arrived at New Orleans on the 26th. The news is that ibe armistice is terminated ; the city taken on the 16th, after hard fighting; Scott's loss 1700; Mexican loss not known; Gen. Bravo killed ; und Santa Anna wounded, and retired to Guadaloujie. BY TIIU MAILS. ADDITIONAL INTELLIGENCE FROM THK CITY OF M EXICO.

General Lane has arrived; General Gushing is coming. C?Py "/ a Private Letter Received at Vera Crux On the Ath I lilt, the conference was still going on in the city, but was conducted with greet secrecy. Letters written by two cftloers in the State Department of Mexico, state that General Soott's conditions will not be accepted. and that hostilities will be recommenced. This intelligence. howeTer, cannot be relied on. although it appears to be the opinion entortalned bj the greater portion of the Mextcaa people. A continuance of the war is urged by the inhabitants remote from the American fore.*, those in their violnity seem much more iiuiet. and appear to wish to submit without resistance. They have suffered so much from the robberies and maltreatment lnflioted on them by the guerillas, that they appear anxious for the latter to bo driven off by the Amerloan forces.

But his answer was, that no conference could be held until Santa Anna had attacked the Amerioans. as he ought to do, in the rear At 0 o'olook the same night, another adjutant from Santa Anna arrived, bringing an order from him (Santa Anna) to retreat during the night, and abandon the artillery, as (said he) the Mexican army would certainly be defeated

the n>*xi day if the order was not obeyed. During that night, Valencia continued receiving information tliat reinforcements were coming to the aid of tbe Ameiioans, by roads almost impracticable ; and he says that, had Santa Anna remained -instead of retiring to !San Angel, he would oertainly have cut the enemy to pieces; that, after consulting with other generals, he (Valeucla) came to the conclusion to remain where he was, as, even if defeated, it would be more honorable to him than to retreat; and, in the first easo, the responnibllity and ignominy would fall upon the general who had been so oold a spectator of his ruin, and the defeat of his countrymen. On tbe morning of the 20th August, whioh. according to Valencia, ought to have been one of the most gloriouo to the Mexican arms, the American oolumns were seen mnTinir In a*TAr*l dirMtlons. no ftJi to ftittfik bim on fill nidus. 11b cent (Jen.
