Puebla, Oct. 13 1847 i Sib?I have the honor to rwport, that afUr twentyeight dtyi' oIom Investment. the enemy yesterday raised the siege, and left for Atlixo. I will avail myself of this appoitunity to submit to the General-la-chief a brief acoouut of the operation* of the trc-p" at thia point, from the period of my aastftning Wilt to the termination of th* siege, and the arrival of Brigadier General Lane with relmoroement*. Uu entering upon duties as civil aud military goveruor, I found myself in command of Captain Ford'* company of cavalry, 40 strong; Captain KendrW* auu Miller'* oompaniea of artillery, numbering 100; together j with *iz companies of the lat Peni sylvaula volunteer*, commanded by Lieut. Col. Blank hi* total eOeotlve { strength being 247?and hospitals fl!l?d with 1.800 tlok. With this command, San Jose, the grand depot In the city, Loreto, and Guadalupe, were to be garrUoned, and held against the oomblmd effort* of the military and popnlaoe. The isolated position selected for the hospital* compelled m* to remove them within the protfo'icn of S<u Jose, on the first demonstration of hostility This was not long In exhibiting itself, when 1 put myself, with sunh mean* a* I had at my dieposal, in the beat possible state for defence, confining my effort* to the square* immediately around San Jose; and from these points the enemy, daring the entire siege, were not able to force in (but for a single moment) a sentinel. No open acts of hostility, other than the murdering of straggling soldiers, occurred until the nighCof the 13th of September, when a fire was opened from some of the streets On the night of the 14th It recommenced, and from every street, with a violence that knew of no cesnatiOB for twenty-eight days and night* The enemy, with their numerous cavalry, succeeded in cutting off, at onoe, every kind of supply, and vainly attempted to ohange the ourrent cf the stream of water, that we might beoome a more easy prey. The night, however, before the oattle and sheep disappeared from this vicinity, two well-directed parties obtained 30 of the former and 400 of the latter. The various points to be defended for the preservation of San Jo??, on which the rafety of the other pests depended, demanded the untiring vigilance of every oflcer and man The enemy augmented in numbers daily, and dally the firing was increased ; and finally, on the -2-iiX of September, General Santa Anna arrived with large reinforcements from Mexico, much to the delight of tbe besiegers, on whioh oocssion a general ringing of bells took place, and was only stopped?a.* It had been several times before?by a disoharge of shells and round-shot from Loreto Into the heart of the city. On the 25th of September (Jen. Santa Anna demanded ray surrender. A copy of his demand, together with the reply, are herewith enclosed, marked A. 1 here beg to pay a passing tribute to my gallant troops. So soon aa T had despatched mv answer, 1 supposed not a moment would be lost by tbe General, who was t? attack me at ail points with bis 8.000 troops. I rode to the different posts, and announoad to the troops the demand, the force with whioh it wai backed,and my reply. Their response oonvlnoed me that all was Mife ; that a hard and bloody battle mast be fought ere the great captain of Mexico oould overcome my little band. The npint of attack was Pan Jose, commanded by Llent. Col. Black, with Capt. Ford's company of cavalry, and Capt. Miller's company of 4th artillery, tad four companies of his own regiment, and one hospital, the guard of which was in oommand of Capt. Itowe, of the ?th regiment of infantry. The duty required of this command, as 1 have before observed, in eonaequenee of the various points to be defended, demanded an untiring effort on the part ot every officer and soldier. A shower of ballets was constantly from t>iM utrHtfts t.h ? halnnniwi tha hniuA.tona and churches, upon their devoted heads. Never d d troops endure more fatigue, by watching, night after night, lor more tban thirty consecutive night*, Dor exhibit more patient, spirit, and gallantry. Not a poet of danger nould present itself, but the gallant tallows were ready to fill it. Not* sentinel could be shot, but another ?a* anxious and ready to take his place. Officers "il l Midlers vied with each nthar, to be honored martyrs in their country'? oauso. This Is the general character ot the troops 1 had the honor to command, and I was eonfldent the crown of victory would perch upon their slaudard, when the last great effort should be made. Their bold and determined irout deprived them of what they anxiously desired. On the 3(Hh ult iiBL Santa Ant a had established his battery Iwaring apou baa Jose, and opeui-J with .much spirit. Having antioipatedlliis movement, I had thrown up a traverse on the plaza, and withdrawn a Impounder from Lortto, by which meaus I was enabled to answer his shot. Towards night his lattery oeased, aud on the next morning was withdrawn, together with from 3,000 to 4,000 of tbe besieging foree. to meet the reinforcements then daily expected at final. On tbe 2d Instant 1 availed myself of some reduetiou of tbe enemy's numbers to make a sortie against certain barricades and building*, whose fire had become very annoying. One of the expeditions was oonflded to Capt. Small, of tbe 1st i'ennsjlvania volunteers Passing tUrt ugh the walls of an entire sijuuie, with fifty men, be gained a poaii ion opposite the barricade, and 1rove the eueniy with great loss, they leaviug seventeen <luad on the grouud The barricade, ronaUtiug of I6l> bales of cotton, was consumed in thit ?flair. Cspt. Hdixll and Ills ucm^and behave! with great gallantry, and lor twenty-iour hours were unoeaslng in their labor* in accomplishing the objoot; when l sent Lieut Laidley, of the ordnance oorps to blow up a prominent buildlog, which was done by that excellent officer iu good style; when the entire party was withdrawn, with few wouuded. At the same time Lieut. Morgan, of th<- 14th rrgimrnt, with a de aihment of marines, and Lieut. Merrifleld, oi the 16th regiment, with a detachment of riHcs.attempted to gtin possession of certain buildings from which we wete reoeivlog a most galling fire. Lieut Merrlfleld entered the buiWlog. Lieut. Morgan was not so fortunate The enemy being present in great forre, I directed him to full back, with the loss of one man killed. Ou tbe ftih lis i&tClft Ileixon was detached with hi* company to itk* ' '*t>lon of a building from whiah the enemy had Imm <-ntna<lin? the plaza. This h* did in a very handsome manner, and to my entire sat'rfactlon, with only * feu u.en wounded. Other minor acts of gallantry an J ?oo'l conduct wi-re exhibited by officers snd men at a Jnae , and from (iuadalure one or two successful sorll*r were made upon the enemy, when engaged iu their dmlj attacks on baa J0.??. From Lieut Cel. Black, the Immediate oommander of Sau Job*?, nad his olflcerM, I h iv? received tbe inuet eordial aup|<oit. Col. Black for more than thirty days wm untiring iu hU efforts and s-?l for the safety of that point OfHoers and men were at theii poata night and day, without regarding the pelting storm ; end I cannot nay too much In praisa of the gtllant colonel, hla oflloera and men. betore and daring ibe siege. Lieut. Laidley, of th? ordnanen corps, commanded th? 12.pounder, the mountain bowitaer, and four rocket batteries at the barricade, and there stationed himself night after night; and, as often a* these batterlea were opened, it waa with effect Capt. Ford,commanding the cavalry, although no oppoi t unity oaourred, In consequemui of tbe limited number of bis troops, to engage tbe enemy, was at all times ready. Capt. Miliar, of the 4th artillery, waa particularly lUcceMtul in managing the 13-pounder in one of the general attaaka, and showed himself a good officer and skilful artillerist. Major Owynn, commanding Loreto, although not attacked, was vigilant, and his command waa of great iwsistanre to me. Several detachti enta from bis post occupied exposed points, and received heavy Area from the enemy?especially detachments under Lieu s. Carroll and Moore, who for lorty-elght hour* stood their guard, and were of essential service to me I cannot speak too highly of Capt Kendrick and his mabagemont of hla batteries Ills shells and shot fell beautifully upon houses and churches, where the enemy were In great numbers. Wherever his shot took effect, the firing soon oeaaed. The limited number of these missiles compelled us to use them with great csution I am muoh, vry much, Indebted to Capt. Kandrlck for his vigi!iiuoe and exertions before and <iuting the siege I will take this occasion to mention Hertreant Dwell, of company B, 2d artillery, as a most skilful artillerist. I never saw shot thrown with mora accuracy than from his gun. I take great pleasure In speaking of Capt. Morehead, commanding Unadalupa '1 he pUce and defences were in a most dilapidated condition. Capt. Morehead, with his command, succeeded In placing hlmaelf in a perfect state of defence, by great and constant labor The enemy several times telt him, but finding him always on the mien. rnaue nu Mriuui auaca ny sorues upon me enemy, when attacking San Jore, bo was of easantlal service ta as. and killed many of them I consider him an excellent and gallant officer. Lieutenant Kdwarda, 24 artillery, In charge of the mountain howitier, threw hla sheila with K>?at accuracy, and commanded a suco?*?fal sortie. To Capt. Howe, of tho Oth Infantry, who commanded thr> guard of one of the hospital*, (a oonatant point or attack, both day and night.) I am greatly Indebted for hla nble defence of that position, and hla gallant bearing before the enemy. To burgeon MU1?, chief of the medical department and to hla auutanta, great praise la due for their unwMrlad and laborious service*. Left with 1,600 ilck.and limited supplies, witli bat el* usslsiant*, their utmost eiertlona were neeestary to admlulster timely remedies to to many patients. Their attuntlon to tbe wounded deserve* my notice and thank*. These gentlemen were not only occupied In their professional unties, but the want of officers and man oompelied me to make large requisitions far the defence of the hospitals on aurgeons and Invalid*, and they were nightly oa guard marshalling their men upon the roofs and oiher point*. To them I am greatly Indabtad. Capt. Webster, A. Q M , and Lieut. Khett. A. C.S , rendered valuable service* In defending their pranilaeft with men in their employ; and with men In the quartermaster department i was enablad to oecupy a position that was all important, and to which I bad naitnar officers nor soldiers to send. Messrs Hpencer and Brown were particularly active and of peat servioe. ?mpmmmm 1????* iW Y( :w YORK, TUESDAY Mi i]l *huu)d bn uujunt to mywdf. an J ? th? sp* nomptnj iindi-r <"a,?t.

Pratt, with hi* battery, waa ordered to follow, in rear of the dragoon*, at a gallop.? IIlid thin i.i' veur ii'. bijen performed, tbu whole force would have been our*. But. by an order from Major Litlly, Lieut.

The cavulry pursued the retreating enemy for about a mile and a ball', *airml*hing with them On arriving at a final I hill, they made a stand and fought sevtrely uatil our lufantry appeared,wheu they tooktlight. Our artillery tired a few shots as aoon as lt came up. but without i Beet, tta bv their rapid retreat they bad plaoed themselves at long range. The dragoon* were again ordered to follow and keep them engaged. After a running fight 01 ?bout four milt*, and when within a mile and half of Atllxoo, the whole body of tho enemy was discovered on a tide bill, covered with obaparral, forming hedges, behind which tbey had potted themselves Our cavalry dashed among them, cutting them down in great numbers bo thick was the chaparral, that the dragoons ?i>rA ordnrvd to (llimAiint. ?.???< ft<rht Kum ?? * moot b.oody oonfliot ensued, fatal to the enemy. Our intualrj for th* last nix inile* bud been (training themselves t? the utmost to overtake the enemy, pre*?iug forward uolt arduously, notwithstanding the forced march of sixteen miles einoe 11 o'olouk. Owing to the nature of the road, almoat entirely destroyed by gullies, the artillery could only advance at a walk. Aa coon m the infautry again appeared in sight, the euemy again retreated. Ho worn out were our horses, (tha aun having been broiling hot all day.) that they could pursue tha enemy no further. The column wa.? pressed forward a a rapidly as possible towards the town; but night had already shut in, giving us, however, the advantage of a tine moonlight. As we approaohed, several shots were flred at us. and deeming it unsafe to rlak a street fight in an unknown town at night, 1 ordered the artillery to be posted on a hill uear to the town and overlooking it, and open its Ore. Now eusued one of the most beautiful sights conotiivable. Kvery gun was servud with the utmost rapidity; and the nrash of the walls, and the roofs of the Louse* when 'stsuck by our shot aud shell. ?u mingled with tLe roar of our artillery. The bright light of the moon enabled us to direct our shots to the most thickly populated parts of the town. After tiring three <i'iaet?M ?>f ni?

Scarcely ever has a mora rapid forced march been made than thin, and productive of better results. Altixoo has been the headquarter* of ruerilUf in this section of oountry, and of late the seat f government of this State Krom hence all expeditions have been fittel out against our troops So much terror h?s been impressed upon thurn, at thus having war brought to their own homes, that I am inclined to believe they will give us no more trouble.

But tha bad taste ?hlcb It hat been attempted to avoid, has got tha upper band In a number of unfortunate details.
