E N K NEW I HIGHLY INTERESTING INTELLIGENCE FROM THE SEAT OF WAR. OFFICIAL MEXICAN ACCOUNT OK TUK CAPTURE OF THE CITY OF MEXICO. die., dec., die. [From the New Orleans Delta eitra, Oct. 4 ] The eteauifthlp Alabama. Captain Wlndle, arrived here at an early hour thin morning, from VeraCruz and Tampioo, having lrft th? former place on the JUth, and the latter on the 30th nit. By thl? arrival we received the flr?t number of " The Gmt'uf of Lihtrtya new paper publlihed in Vera Cruz, by Mcsar* Mathewion k Quinn, from which we gather the following Information. Thrre had been no communication between Vera Crux and the city of Mexico, ilnce the newa brought by the Mary Kingeland, already laid before our readera. The capture of the capital and the flight of the government to Ouadaloupe are.however.placud beyond a doubt hr letter* received at Vera Cruz via Orizaba and Tarnplco. The following circular to commarnlanLj minora.! of <l? partmento. dated at Guadalupe, September 14. which we oopy from the Geniut tf Liltrly. describes the attack of the American forces on th? defeuoel of Chupultepec. and tha subsequent entry Into the olty. < 'hapultepec wan carried at tha poi?t of the bayonet, at dnybroak of thu 13th, after a desperate resistance of nix hourn The fortiflcat'ou iltuated between the sentry boxen of Deleu and St. Thomas, St. Corao and tbo citldel, was next attacked by our forces. The resistance of the Mexicans at this place was truly desperate, and the heroism displayed by them worthy of the best days of the Republic. Santa Anna led his troops In person After nine hour! hard fighting, according to the Mexican ciroular now beforo us, (ien. Scott retired, drawing off bis forces. The Mexicans, it appears, after repulsing the forces under Gen. Scott, dreading a bombardment and being anxious to avoid the horrors attendant upon assault,concluded to surrrtider the city, the government and the forces under Santa Anna retiring to Gu&daloupe. Gen Scott vntnred the capital on the 15th ult. Dut to the circular of Sr. Alcorta. Most Kuof.li.int Sir?After the important and great vents that have yesterday taken place, there remains no other alternative to the government of the union, than that of abandoning the capital. in order that other means be adopted and pursued for the harassing of the enemy. Accordingly, his excellenuy orders mc to Inform you, in order that through you, the honorable congress of the state over which you preside, may know it, that his excellency is firmly resolved to proewcute military operations against the Invaders. And that whatever be the conscquenoes resulting from the war, his excellency is determined to wage it in every p ossible manner, and by every attainable means. An heroic resistance was mado in the capital, for the space of six days,but at length the enemy established himself in places nud positions from which hla missiles and projectiles could reach the* peaceful thousands of tho city; then the supreme government, seeing the state of affairs to be such as warranted their departure, changed their abode; and very toon I will' have the pleasure of announcing to your excellency the situ upon which it will fix, which at present is impossible for jno to do, a* it accompanies the army, and ss yet is noi,. agreed upon the residence of the supreme power of th o uatitn But as t oon as the latter Is known, I will give your excellency a retailed aocount of everything that has occurred; but now i Khali confine myself to the single following statement:? The American army charged yest' iMay at dny light with all its fores, upon Chapultepec, wb!oh, after a spirited defence of six hours, yielded at las t to the attaoks of the enemy, who immediately marche 1 to take possession of a fortification situated betwiw r. the ??ntn ho* Helen and St. Thomas, St Como nn<l the oitadfl The first advance was chucked by the troi >ps his exoellency the Prohident led up. diuputing the ground Inch bv inch, till finally the invader was routed fr xra the citailel. after nine hours hard fighting. The capital being in.thiH situation.his excellency was anxious to.aWnid a bombardment, and t* (pare the tumult and confiution attendant upon an assault, which wliould have giv<ni room lor a thousand calamities, and a repetition <?f those acts in whioh the army of the foe has manifested, bo instinctive a spirit ef extermination. Ills excellency the President of the Republic hopes that your excellency will endeavor to preserve and re uiiuat* the public spirit, in order that the war may be oarrlod on with Ihe vigor and vnergy which the national honor aud the rights of the i?publio so imperiously demand. ALCOHTA. Nib) iter of War and Marine. Guadeloupe Hidalgo, "?,'pt. 14, 1847. We are still left in doii|>t at* to the number of killed and wounded in the battles before the capital, no particulars being given in tb?i letters or papers before us.? The rumors bv oreviouu ailviuos nf th? nt ii?>? Smith and Worth, wo nn inclined to believe, us wo tru*t they are, entirely premature. The large train whleh recently left Vera Crut under Oen. Lane had taken up. a position at the National Bridge,and wan there h waltling the return of supplies from Vera Crus. The guerilla* mustered in large numbers in the vicinity of the bridge, and were continually harassing Uen. Lane's comma*.d. The Clmiui ?/ Liberty, of the 2ith, Hays: ? Intelligence hu been recoived by us, brought In by a train whioh hue just arrived from the Natioaal Bridge, under the superintend enoe of Lieut Bedny K. McDonald. Acting Brigadier 'Quarter Master, that Gen Lane, with his force, bad taken up a position for the present at that post, and thai e was awaiting the return of the supplies, which ia thfrj express object of this train to carry out. The gallant General and his brave band were somewhat hurst scd by the enemy, who kept continually hovering on bis Hank*, firing on them occasionally. but the vlgilauee and circumspection which he unceasingly manifested, deterred the enemy from au approach within anv reasonable proximity. We are extremely sorry to add that Lieut Kline, r.t Cspt. Lewis's company ?f Louisiana volunteers, wax slain while employed in t) le rear In the performance of duties incidental ct> the ti' lie. The ktradliioss with ?'hied the Oeneral advanced and marshalled his foioo ! or thn full and complete protection of the train, is w crtby, by all accounts, of every prait-e and commendatl on, and in In perfect keeping with his character, whir fa is that of coolness, determined bravery, and calcu) atiug prudence. 8uoh are the men qualified to take ahar,e of reinforcements passing through the enumy's cauntry, in which every moment surprises and attacks xro things to be expeoted, and should consequently bA foreseen and provided for. The guerillas, it is tiaid, have fo'tified the height* of Cerro Gordo. They are posted there in large numbers, with several pieces of artillery, and are said to be commanded by Gen. Par Mies. Capt. White's ccanpany of Louisiana volunteers and two oompanics of ?4ie lith regiment left Tamploo for Vera Crux on the SHfch ult.

[ Krom the Charleston Courier, Oct. 0 ] We have been favorvd with tlie extracts of a latter which follow, giving unite a particular account of the difficulties and danger* encountered by the body of troop* under command of Major Lally, In their progress from Vera Crux to .lalapa, which latter placu they readied on the -JOth of August.

" We left Vara Crux on the tttb, anil arrived here after a most hnrraating and fatiguing maroh, on tho '.10th ult. I shall endiMvor to sketch roino of the incidents of the rout*. We ?re obliged to resort to novel and amusing expedients In order to get letter* to tho Uuited State*. The train i|Aif?; we have, however, left some 14 or 1ft wagon.* behlna u* a* a measure of precaution? the enemy ill 1 not sucoeed lu gettiug ono by legitimate capture.

It i? situated among the mountains and within a few mile* of Orixava. flora may be found every thing that could be anticipated from a *<>11 that yields with spontaneous luxuriance all the various productions of a tropical climate. * " llut you are anxious to know how we got here?It I* Mid that our troop* have never been exposed to more fatigue and hardship In Mexico. The guerilla*, from a paragraph lu a New Orleans papor, got an idea that we had one and a half million* of dollars With all our effort*, we could make but four mile* that night -nearly one-third of the command had fallen to the roar. " Have you ever bivouacked T Heaven*! I hope not. * -Thoau were good beds, Lieutenant, we u?ed to ileep on in the old north State,' was heard in tho tone of a man not exactly comfortable " We bivouacked two d*ys and started?the heat Inton*"?the sand deep. The men had to oarry a weight i of 1? or 30 lbs , 40 round* ball cartridge, knapsaok* tilled , with olothlng. No wonder many fell behind; I had my- , s.ilf to carry one stout Mlow's musket for him two or . three hour*. A fine athletlo man from Texa*, dropped on the road side, and waa a few hours afterward* snot by the guerilla*. We reached Hant* F?? the country b?come* more Orm, and rolling?broad meadows covered with tall grass, and the atmosphere refreshing and invigorating?white atone oottagr* diversify the prospect, and I drove* of large 1st cattle roam at will through the** ver- t dant pasture* .

It 1 wsa furnished with sumptuous elegano*. The views are lovely and Imposing. < "At rsvsllle next morning, we were again In motion i going upwards, still upwards, as the land seemed to aa- ] oend at avery step. All at once a volley of musketry ( broke the monotony. W# dlsoovered the enemy posted | W ?0 YORK, WEDNESDAY W on a hill. an our loft. In soine force The commind hsltfd. The order to charge wus giveu I scrambled up the hill, jirked myself over the rooks with the men, but on getting to the top, the enemy had gone We oontinued our journey and arrived at the Passo D'Ovajas. Thii remarkable pasa 1* formed by a turn in the road, and it waa not until the advance was about to emerge that we actually understood our dangerous position. At this moment a single shot waa fired, and immediately after a volley of escopettes,that extended along the whole advance and a portion of the"wagons. Capt. Jones' Company C, of North Carolina, 13th Regiment, waa in the mouth of the pass, the last of the advaaoe. We formed into platoons. Home confounded mules having been wounded, came rushing down the hill, trains and all,'into ua, but the officer* of the company soon set all to rights again. We formed on the edge of the bushea, and fired low and by company. We delivered two fires This produced a very eloquent sllenoe. In the mean time, while this waa going ou in the rear, the enemy's cavalry charged the bead of the column. Lieutenant Sears, of the Artillery, route! them with a oouple of hi* grape and caulnter applications, and a portion of the Infantry and Voltlguers under('apUiuj Alvord Cummins ami (.'aid well charged In pursuit. The two latter were both neverely wounded The Mexicans left many killed; our lots was nve In killed and wounded. " From this time we wareoonstantlyexchangingsbots; some times receiving whole vollles. which killed and wounded a few men, but harraaaed the command exceedingly. 11 On the Hth August we reached the National Bridge, met the eueuiy.aud at first suffered some loss ?and upon the top of this bluff, perohod some 600 feet above the Bridge, stands the Castle, which commands the bridge iiu ibp {ipivaciitji. uui ittiiM urtuy, |tiU|)Hnjr ui?(wwu, arrived at the head of the dellle ; va pasuod along these windings and ?ained tliu bridge. Kvery thing was silent ; we parsed half way across, where we saw an embankment, which would seem to render further progress rather doubtful We approitohed, and when within point blank distance a volley of (Mcopctteu hurit from behind; at the unto moment the castle on the left nnd heights on the right gave us a Revere and galling fire. In rain tho cavalry onarged?the embankment was impassable. The artillery belched forth its Iron inopseugers of death, but the dread weapon could not touch the foo. The men were falling fast; the cannon was left for a very short time dismantled on the bridge. An officer volunteered to repass up the brldgs and bring up one, and with the aid of nine men of oompany C, it was accomplished in one hour. They remained on the bri Jgu, unsheltered, in the midst of the Are, where the gallant Lt. Twiggs joined the party, but did not share their succcss. having been shot Immediately after, dying with thw drag rope in his hand and a smile upon his lips. His friend Sears, another noble hearted gentleman, and myself. went down after his body and brought it up, spite of the cursrs and fire of the enomy. ' Krom this piece a fire was opened upon the castle; they retired, the fort was entered by our force, and upon an ofllcor of the l-Jth waving tho stars and stripes from the point of his blade, the shout that rose to Heaven made a fellow fuel rather glorious. We were victorious. I do not know how to do justice to theooolneim and courage of the troops and tho gallantry of the officers, who for halt an hour, stood under a pretty hot fire. Here were wounded Capt. dark, Lleuts. Creanor, Wender, and Adams, and Capt. Twiggs killed. "We remained two nights on the bridge, dressing the wounded, repairing losses, Jco., and pushed on for Plan del Rio, destroying on the way 14 wagons to lighton our train and condense our forces. We found the enemy had destroyed the stone bridge, but we quietly waded over, driving the teams before us '-We learned at i'lan del Ilio that the enemy were waiting for us at Cerro Oordo. A plan of battle was arranged, and we sallied out.wltli 600 picked men to thrash him. "We had no sooner approached this seeming impregnable burrier than our advance was arrested by a Ore of escopettes. The command opened to the right and left out of the road. The lett asoended the steep hills and stormed successively fort after fort, line after linn, party after party. The charge was resistless ; the enemy tied, leaving their dead behind thum.

He called for another ruading of the pream- ui ble and resolution,for the purpose of seeing whather the R Convention are willing to refer it. "> The Secretary accordingly read it, and ki Dr. Biiuiik said he objected to the preamble, because it averts literally that the discussion of important to- m pics are calculated to do injury to the church; that its tj doctrines are ao flrmly established that they cannot be tr moved, and that the discussion of such toplos as were w discussed at lsst session is improper. He denied the j? ground t?k-n in the preamble, and hoped that if the re re Holn'ion were pressed. there would b i some discussion st on the subject, which had better be postponed.

Ha believed they would have lidfBolent time If his resolution should be adopted, lie should therefore preaa hU raaolutlon. Mr.Coi.Lini wu. appruh*uslve that tho gentleman had overlooked some facts iu the case. The buslnee to which the committees were oalled were not light.bnt vary onerouf. The Rot Mr. Nc.wroi, of Massachusetts, was opposed to the resolution, and if it win to be passed, he should move to-morrow, at 11 o'clock, that the Houie adjourn, in order to give the committee an opportunity to mature their busluefs. On motion, the resolution of Mr. Conyngham waa then laid on the table. Dr. Ooii.ijv. in behalf of the committee appointed on tha 9th rulo of orilar, reported the following resolution, which was adopted : ltesolved, That the following be adopted M a substitute for tho 9th rule of order : When a question is under consideration no motion shall bo received unleaa to lay upon the table, to postpone for a certain time, to postpone indefinitely, to commit, or to amend : and notions for both these purposes shall have preoedenoe iu the order named. A motion to adjourn shall always bo in order. Kev Dr. Hawks, at the request of the deputies from Wisconsin, moved that the house consentto the eleotlou of Mr. Jaoksou Keuiper as Bishop of tb? Diooese of Wisconsin, which motiou being put, waa carried. The certificate of election for the diocese of Wisoon* bin having been read, Mr. Ch jf.i inquired if further evidence was not neoessary. and whether the iiishop had given his assent to ihe eleotlou. Mr. Hum said tho ill.,bop had not yet given his assent to the election ; I ut lio could not see any difficulty in tbo way of proor.idlii.; to coulirin his election.? Whether the Bishop would accept the appointment or otherwise, mattered not. Dr. Hawk? said the reason why he had before moved to call up this subject, was that he saw the nsoessity of action ou the part of the House before the Bishop gar* his assent. He was now a missionary Bishop If he were then to pronouuce his assent to this election, he must, as a preliminary stop, resign his old jurisdiction. Suppose this house should not agree to confirm his election, the Uishop had resigned his present jurisdiction, and, by so doing, had put himself in a position he did not design to be. Why not, then, let them pass through with all the requisite formalities of an election? Then the Uishop would be prepared to relinquish his missionary bishopric without embarrassment. Aftor Homo Iuriher (lebatn of do special interest, the couvuutiou aJjuurued to bait pant 9 o'clock this meaning. olr consul at havana.?The following letter hHHbeen received l>y the ICditorBof the JVew Orltam Picayune. It was dated Havana Sept With, It) 17. I perc ivH that there lias been some excitement In nhw Orleans in relation to the landing of Parade* in Vera Cruz, and a disposition to attach some censure to the American consul for not baring taken such steps would huve acquainted tiov Wilion with the fact of Ilia (i'aredes) being on board the Dritiah Hteamer. It is generally understood in this city that the consul had taken the necessary steps; that he wrote to tiov. Wilson,aud also to the collector of Vera Crux; and lie. fearing tbe landing of l'<iredeH might bo effected before letters could reach thosa gentleman through the pout office, sought lonii other mode of sending hi* ooinmunication Tbi* was offered by Nr. A. li. Carpenter, who had been attached to the quartermaster'* department of Vera Crux, and who stated that he had an acquaintance on board the steamer who would take charge of the letters and deliver them on the first visit of the boat from the custom-house. This was to all appearance the best mode which could be selected, unless a special agent waa employed for the purpose of delivery, and I have no id** that uuy agent could have been engaged for a lea* sum than from Ave to six hundred dollar*-and, would the United States Government have sanctioned such an expenditure tor a purpose apparently so useleaa* For Paredes was well known in Vera Crux,and It would not have been deemed probable that he who waa known to so many could have eluded tbe vigilance of our ofAoers,an<l have escaped from the city, not that 1 think his arrival in Mexico i* worthy of ouaideration. You will readily perceive on perusing the above that no blame ean be attached to our consul In the affair. WANTKP? \ lit'mslied Koom, i.etwees Beaver and Courtlaud' treets.
