General Order* Nor. JO and 87, from the headquarters of the army, are republished for the information ot all. Their language is plain, and oannot be misunderstood. Any one fuund violating these orders, or thoee issued from these headquarters, will be brought before a court marttal or military commission, as the oase May require. 3 It appears to be the opinion of some officers that they are in no degree responsible far the misconduct of their men, or bound to notice and report their evil deeds ?that it might reader them unpopular with their regiments or companies, or with their friends?that it is the business of the generals to correct theae Irregularities and bear the odium in oamp and at home This opinion will be tolerated no longer Every officer will be held < responsible for his command; and any regiment or company found to be Incorrigible, will be sent to the rear; they cannot be trusted in the Held.

I By order of Major Oan. Tatteraon, J J, ABKRCROMBIE. Brevet Lieut. Col. U. S. A. Aot'g Adj Gen. The following letters from our abrewd and well in- | formed correspondent at Vera Crux, will put our readers | quite aii cnurrant of the events which have occurred there since our last advices \ Vera Cruz, Oct 23, 1847. The accounts we have are very meagre and unsatis- i factory, and as the letters which I have been permitted to see were written and sent only a few hours after Mr Castro and others left in the diligenoo, they contain but few items which I have not seen before. 1'he let- 1 ters are from highly respectable souroes in Mexico, and I wiil give you such extracts as I have selected for what they are worth. The first is from a Spanish merchant: 1 Mtiicn Oct 7. 1H47. < Everything goes on very qulely now, but there is no I telling how long it will last The leperos. and others of < the lower class, are suffering much in consequence of < the exorbitant prices demanded for every thing in 1 the shape of provisions. Corn, which forms the princi- 1 pal part of their subsistence. Is stlllng at 114 per cargo, 1 (about six bushels,) and other grains in proportion Tbe Americans monopolise the most of the small quantity which is brought in, and unices they have the means to open the avenues leading to the city, and take ' possession of, and bold tbe principal haciendas in the neighborhood, they will be drained of the supplies which would otherwise be brought In, and which the owners are wllllag to bring in if they are only protected. No aseaas have been neglected in the power of the managers of the affairs of our poor unfortunate country to cut. off communication with tbe olty. Every road leading into the olty Is occupied by small parties of our people to stop the supplies, and they threaten death to all who mtv attempt to do so We do not look for anv thin* to be" ^brought in except under American escort*. They are too weak to attack or harm may American force tbnt way b? Rent oat, and will seorete themselves for half an hour until the Americans hare paftRei1. and thenoccufy their old posts again. 1'hia ic really annoying, for they appear to forget that there :ire twenty Mexicans tr where there is on* American to be fed. and if a change does not take place soon, I foresee distress [A friend suggests that this is rather tight on the Mexican people ] i The leperos are very loud in their demonstrations of the Americans, and say if they oontlnue to hold the city lot>g. they must either starve or tight It is certain that they must lire, and if they can neither bay nor steal enough for that purpose, whioh I think will be impossible for them to do, before long they must resort to other means-the means of force-and they have the force to drive away Amerioans from the city, if they can muster oourage enough to make the attempt, and could be well organised. I might furnish yon with more speculations from this i epistle, but I hardly think those contained above are worth the trouble I have taken. i Another letter, In speaking of the late earthquake, says : "The shooks were the severest I ever experienced, and created a general panio all over the city, with Americans as well as Mexicans " Vr.a* Can*, Oct J4, 1847 The gale has partially subsided, and although three vessels have gone on shore. 1 do not hear that any lives have been lost The steamer Ann Chase, which Is amongst the number, will prova a total loss The other two are the schooners Thomas B Odell. ('apt t rench, from the Braioa, and the Arispe, ( apt. West. The latter arrived yesterday from the Rraios with a load of mules, which wt-re landed without having suffered any ipjury. This vessel may possibly be got off again The boilers of the Ann Cbase^were burnt out; otherwise, with the assistance of her engine she might have been prevented from going on shore. A gentleman who visited ber early this morning, informs me that she Is laying on a bed of coral rock, but that some of bar fixtures may be saved. < An escort, composed of Captains Kairchlld's and Biacoe's companies of Louisiana Rangers, will 1mt? tomorrow morning for the National Bridge, to meet the Mexican escort with Mr. Dankhead, her Britannic majesty's minister, who will leave in the royal mall < pteamer Korth, on the 1st of Ootober, for Kngland. for the benefit of his health For nearly a year Mr. B has been differing with the rheumatism, and at times i he baa been entirely unable to move about the hous?, except by the assistance of his attendants I Since writing the above, two Krenohmen with three 1 servants have arrived from Mexico, having left on the ] l.'lth Inst , but bring no news from Oan. Scott of importance; they represent everything as perfectly quiet in the olty, and the health of our troops very good These ] gentlemen were formerly the proprietors of a large wagon line which run between this and Mexico, and with a view of making preparations for a continuation of the business, as soon as it will be safh to to ae, they ' have cone to Vera Crui to compl*t?th?tr arrangements 1 from ruebla the news is of considerable i ulMtiag tki ?laaaholy tiling* of tk? intk oftaji ! W YO V YORK, MONDAY MOJ tain Samuel H. Walker, of the Mounted Rifle*. He joined lien. Lane with bit company at Perote, and upon their arrival near Huamantla found that the plaoe w?s occupied by Santa Anna ami about fifteen hundred men Captain Walker, commanding hi* own company and that of Captain Lewis's Louisiana Hangers, (total l?i] men,) proceeded into the town in advance, id finding the Mexicans prepared to receive them, i.aptaln Walker gave the order to charge, and the] lancer*, who did not fWll beneath the deadly fire of tne rifles and carbines, fled According to account*. Santa Anna, who wax but a short distance off, use'I his wooden propeller to good advantage, making another miraculous escape. In the meltr Capt Walker killed with his own hand a young Mexican lancer Skirmishing oontinued until they reached the plata, when all fled except the father or the young man who bad fallen by the hands of ('apt Walker, who seated himself behind a house until Capt Walker approached, when he sallied out, lance in hand, and made a deepe. rate attack on Capt. Walker to avenge his son Capt Walker fired his revolver, hut unfortunately missed hi* aim, when the old man killed him with his lance and fled, exclaiming that he bad avenged the death of his soil < apt Walker's list word" to hi? men were ; "Although your captain lias fallen, never surrender my boys.'' As soon aa Captain Walker had fallen, Captain Lewis took command of the battalion and ordered the streets and other plaoes to be sootired, which wss immediately done, and but a few moments elapsed before the village was entirely clear of the hostile portion of the inhabitants. The loss of the Americans I have not been able to ascertain, but it is very slight. That of the Mexicans was severe, and an officer of Captain Lewis's company killed the commanding officer of the lancers la the charge The two l*'r?noh geutlemen are well acquainted with the old Mexican who killed ('apt Walker, and rel ted to me the nircumatmicr* connected with h's death, aa received from both Mrxioaus aod Americans who were on the spot Many of the houses of the village were sacked and destroyed, and it is much to he regretted that after (Jen Lane had passed on, a number of stragglers, who had been intoxicated in the village, were put to death by the Mexicans Accounts varv as to the number who were killed in thin way, and a private letter which I hav* *een set* the number down at about forty men, and other account* make It larger. On their way down these pentlemen were unmolested until they arrived within a few miles of Vergar* cannp, near tbesodne of the murder of the dllligence driver* h f?w day* since 1 bey were flred upon by a small party of Mexican robbers, who. upon finding tuat the flveinen were w? 11 armed, took to the hill*, aa usual. The report that Santa Anna was again at the head of affair* want* confirmation, an they report that he ha I none to Tehuacan with two hundred onralry; that (Jen.

Vera Cat'*, Oct 28, 1847. Thl* morning a party of between twenty-five and thirty men, Mexican*, Spaniard*, and Frenchmen, arrived rora Mexico, via Orizaba, having left the oity on the 18th inat. All wu quiet, and they report no news of Importance. Capt. Patrick, of the third infantry, ha* relieved rapt. Hoyt, of the Massachusetts Volunteers, a* commissary of thla port.

It was found, after the order for the march was given, that several of the regiments were la want of clothing. This has detained the column The norther has o >ntlnued with scarcely any Intermission for a week This morning it Is more quiet, but the wind is beginning to rise again. No mall from the States for about twenty days, and nothiag very interesting from the interior for several days. Uen Marshall Is confined to his room with a lame ankle, and will not be able to go up with Gen. Patterson. The Kentucky regiments will soon be along, however, and Uen. M. will go up at their head. News from Washington is looked for with great anxiety Speculation has oeased here with regard to what the Mexioans intend to do; no one pretends to lerin nu opiaioa, but all agree that we want a large army to act energetically for a tew months, to prevent the enemy from organizing armies?to live at their expense, and to make them feel that forbearance on our part has oeased.

Citv or Mr.nco, October 'J!i, 1H47.

Whim I wrote, it>out twelve days since, the monarchical party seemed to be progressing mint successfully in carrying out their 1> signs ot placing a prince upon the administrative chair if thin Hf public. Then many persons of wealth and inflmnce, who had formerly opposed it, and a great portion of the church, were warmly and boldly advocating the measure as the only means of perpetuating their power and their influence over the government and the l>*ople; but somewhat fearing their success, and believing that if Ihey were thwarted in their views, tbey would also receive a severe shock by th<) defeat, they turned their attention to a different policy, endeavoring to take advantage of oircumstances so as to turn whatever may transpire to the best advantage However, a different feeling appears to he pervading the whole country since our entry into the capital S^nor Pe?ay Pena has taken a firm hold of the reins of government, and has called around him as advisers and ounseilors a muoh brt.ter and more intelligent class of men than has honored the cabinet of Mexico for some time. Me hM scattered and dispersed the faction* which were breeding disturbances at l^ueretaro a short time nince. The new elections of Deputies have resulted in the choice of a more liberal and better class of men than heretofore, and nearly all have signified their tux ietyfor a speedy peace; however, a majority of the old Deputies are also known to bs in favor ol peace ; but the great obstacle in the w y I , that all parties are anxious to be lett] in power, (or acquire some advantage over their opponents, before the consummation of such an event Thus, whenever one party makes an ad vancement, the other opposes it. because they think It would give the one concluding such a measure, some advantage, upon the consummation of their design - The dem*cr?Mo party are willing and anxious to make a peace, if tbey oan overthrow and break down the pri vileged church establishment, and see some means by which thay can prevent the recurrence of the state of affairs which bos always kept them under tbe weather ; if not. they oppose it. and thereby force us, it possible, to occupy the country until th?y recuperate their forces sufficient to enable them to carry out tbelr views El Ilttonodet, which is tbe organ of (his party, has several articles on this subject, which I send All parties, as well as the government, agre-< in abolishing the military establishment, and attribute to it all th? anarchy to which this country has been subjected Kor myself I have no contldenoe In the honor, honesty, 01 the acts ol ?ay portion of either party, as 1 have always founl that there is no reliance to be placed in any thing they sty ><r do - thert are always some under curreals runuing, which are liable to change their determination from day to (lay lurmermore, tury ?r? winning in aca^imy ui cliaraoter and talent -although they writ*and talk well ami fluently, when we cim? to fathom them, the Tory hiMlt of them ar? not auperlor to the mediocrity of talent of our own country?in judgment they are wofully deficient; however, some of oar most enlightened men, who, by their position, ahould b? enabled to judge, make no hesitation Id aaying that they are fully pi-rauaded that the prospects of arranging a peace are more Mattering, at present, than they nave been since the commencement of the war.

The following incident oocurred on the 13th of September, previous to th?? storming of the castle of Chapultepec. and I think it exhibited an much courtesy ?s auy thing I have ever heard. M?j.

Stunner, with the 21 Dragoons, came round ia u run from the opposite fide of the hill, expecting to have to charge a Ueli battery, or tho retreating forces of the enemy. The head of the two regiments met at a point where both w?r? compelled to halt tbr a moment, vlnjor flnnter rode up to Major Sumner, extending bis hand, saluting hlin with. " How do you do, Mijor Sumner ? ' who replied " Heally. sir, I do not recollect you." ' Do not reoollect rae?" ' No, sir," replied Major Sumner When Major Hunter, aa it were, straightening himself up in his saddle, remarked, " I was one o( your Sergeants at Carlisle, sir " At thla,Major Stunner recog. nir.ed his former Sergeant; and, extending his hand, remarked, ' Well, re illy, sir.

HATTI.E OK IllMMA VTLA The following is Santa Anna's aoeount of this gallant affair of our troopH We take it from that excellent paper, the Bniiin of I. berty: ? I he Jlrmy of the Rait ?General-in-Chief, Mmt Rjrctll* lit Sir: ? On the Sth of the present month, I wrote to your Kxcellency from Noraluean. asking you to communicate to his Kxcellency, the Integral President, that which I proposed doing upon the American convoy; providej, that Sr. General of Brigade, Dun Isidro lteyea, should arrive , in time to reinforoe ine But the letter not having come up iu season, and the convoy of the enemy having kdvanced to within three leagm'S of Nopaluc\n, I proceeded to the latter town on the sth Inst , with one thousand horsemen and six Held pieoe*. for the purpose of watch iog hi* movements, in or.ler that I might act rcoordingly The enemy having bivouacked the night of th? Sth between Nopalucan and liuapastla, and belug ready to conttnU" his march on the succeeding morning to Acajete, I determined to attack bis rear guard at the Pinal, and< charge him resolutuly when he least exp-cted it, and with this design, I commenced marching on th? morning of the 7th. But whilst lying concealed In the town of I'sblo, immediate to the Piuai, ob*erviag his movements, I saw from the wateh tower that the enemy's train, instead of prosecuting lta march, was stand lug towards the place in which I had left all my artil iri y, unui|) ri|ui)?Kn mill pi'Trn >(U1>-Kiy uiTlUlUg in? intentions of the foa. I countermarched with all the oelarity I oonld to meet him. But beforo I could eoma up with him. hid vanguard hail already possessed itself of the place and its principal building*, and although I attacked him, my or lumns entering into the town itself, yet it wan not possible for me to dislodge him from his position* with the dragoons, add i found myself obliged to retire to an adjoining hacienda to take up my quarters for the night. In the engagi meat, the eueuiy lost bis commander of cavalry, one oiHner. and many of his troops. My losses were sewn men in killed and wounded, several dispersed, two pieces of artillery, and two of my aids, D Jose Maria Vega and D. Augustin Iturblde, who were taken prisoners whilst oarrylng my orders. In tbis day's attack I killed one hundred of the enemy and took twenty-four prisoners, by whioh I revenged in a measure the outrages and calamities wbioh he had inflicted upon the paoillc and defenceless inhabitants. Although the enemy nearly surprised the town, yet did be only succeed in capturing two pieces of artillery of small calibre, and the tour remaining ones were fortuuately saved, aud are now in my power. Tbis totally unexpected attack wis made upou the town at the instigation, as 1 have learned, of an infamous Mexican criminal. Miguel ileruandez, by name, but your Kxcellenoy can see what its execution cost the enemy, not mentioning the detainment of Iwo extra days upon the road. On Ihu 11th he took up hli Una of inarch for Acajete, where be bivouacked, and I overtook him at the 1'inal, but 1 did not sucoeed in obtaining any decisive advantage over him, owing to the extreme caution he uned in marching, being no doubt considerably affrigbtuned by what be had eiperienoed the preceding day. .According to my ipteH he yesterday reached Auiaioc and to-day lie should enter Puebla with 3000 men and six places if artillery, which he took from l'erote. # Tim day b?foro yt stcrday in this point, the division of (leneral Keas became incorporated with my oommand, but so fatigued are the troops that it is absolutely necessity to allow them some time to rest themselves, and iu consequence 1 was unable to operate upon tne hostile convey Ills Kxoallenoy, the Sr. (Jan D Juan Alvarez, with all ilia forces that were besieging the enemy iu l'uebla, those reinforcemeuti included which I sent him, has fallen b<ick upon Atllxoo, as it is known.
