Thla foroa conatata of companiea (H) and (K) 4th infantry (C) and(D) Sth Infantry, (O.) (I) and (K) 13th infantry. (K) lLth infantry, (G) 16th infantry. (D) and (K) Toitigeura, Capt. Loyall'a company of Georgia mounted volunteer*, Capt. Beaanoon'a onmpany of LouirUna mounted rolunteera, aad a battery of two d-pounders, under the command of Liaut. H U Scare, 3d artillery. C?pt. Beaanoon'a oompany joined the oommand on the Uth of Auguat, and thirteen men of Capt. Kxirohild'a comoanT of Lonialana mounted volunteers joined on the 16th. la all. we were a little more than a thousand strong. Having a train af slaty-four wagons to protect, a* my order of inarch. I placed one wing In front of them, and one in rear, having a guard of two companies in the oenire of the wagons, with mcuoted flankers on each side throughout. The right wing was placed under the command of Capt. O. C. Hutter, 8th Infantry; the lett wing i nder Capt F. M Wlnana, 15th Infantry. I have tha satisfaction to report the arrival of my command hara, without tha loss of a wagon, though our progress haa been warmly contested at four different engagements, by a foree amounting. I have no doubt, at the first attacks at Faao Ovejas. the National bridge, and at Carro Gordo, to from 1,'iOO to 3.000 gnerriias. At the last affair at Laa Animas, near this oity, a smaller foroe met us, as they war* so thoroughly beaten at Cerro Got do that they oould not reorganise. A r*port had gone abroad that this oommand was to convey a Urge qnaatlty of specie to the army, and this erroneous me a was urn dj we nnieis 01 lot) aeparimnni with frest iumh in raising troop* to eontcst our pasr?gi t the different stronKholds on the road. The wtiole disposable foroe of the departmtnt of Vera Crux wu brought into the field against us, and G<tn. Juan i >to, governor of the department, with many oflloers of rank in the Mexican service, h?a led the troops. We first mat at Paso Orejaa, on the 10th August, a report of whioh probably reachud your ofHce from the commanding olSoer at Vara Crut. 'throughout the they first attempted to harraxs the oommand by firing at long dlstanoes. to draw us after them in fruitless search But we coon learned their game, and kept steadily on ear rout*, They made their principal attaofc about 2, P M They had possession of a strong position behind th? ruins of a stone houee. on a hill on oar rlgbt in front; and with a sustained attack in frent. they oombined nearly at the same time a heavy attack on the oentre and rear The artillery, UDd-r Lieut. Hears,opened an *ff? ilve fire of grape and ball upon the atone house. To meet this force In front, the left wing being in advance, was sent forward, with the exception of two companies, (Capt, Ola. k's Md Lieut. Jones, 13th Infantry,) left to protect tha head of tha train. A charge was ordered, but Iks ii,*?w leeruits, and unused to warfare, continued firing their guns in the bush, and it was with difficulty they ware brought to hear the ordnr for the charge. Capt B Alverd, of Mia 4th Infintry, A. A. A.

A barricade ha 1 been discovered on tu.> bridge, a force was organised about half pact 1 p at, to advance upon it with the two pirces of artillery, which hal been unllmbered to be moved forward by hand, with prolongs Lieut Wilkin*, with (O) company lath infantry, his n?n in single rank, was sent forward as an advanced guard in front ot the artillery on the bridge. The artillery was followed by Capt Clarke's oompauy 12ih Infantry, and Lieut Loring's oompauy llth infantry We bad entered upon the second bridge when the enemy opened a concentrated and heavy tire from the bills in front aod on the right of the town, and from tha castle on the latt It was soon discovered that the a> til* lery could not bring its round shot to bear upon the barricade under sach a tire, with all the exertions of its gallant commander, who had fired a tew rounds of t the brad of the train. There one pi?oe obtained a commanding position to play with round shot upon tb? castle on the loft But, while this was bring effected. a galling Are along tbe road from eacopettea In thn oaatle narrasscd very much those engaged in tb? removal of tbe artlllary.

In tbe loiiantime, Lieut Wilkiua and Lient Doyle, of the lSUi Infantry, and Liunt Lorlag, of the lltli Infantry, with parta of their companiea. had maintained tbrir ground manfully at tbe parapet* of the bridge, keeping up a flr? froiu behind the walla of tbe bridge, but at no time finding shelter on both aldrs from the persevering flr- ot' the en amy. Thtia waathia important position maintained for boura by those gallant officers. until (Lieut. Lorlog, with a small party, having crossed tbe barrioadt under tbe scattering flra of the enemy) a party of f>ot and borae was advanced upon the bridge. The former removed tbe barricale, and we took possession of the town, the eni my retiring at ell points. This was about sunset It is hut just to say that the artillery al?ue fhna gave us possession of this eelebratml stroDghofu, and great credit la tine to Lieutenant Sears, 2d artillery, for bis skill, energy, and gallantry on this occasion.

Lieut Ridirely was instructed to endea or to train a poiltion to take the line of breastworks on the road in the rear. He soon found that th? line of batteries 1, 3 and 3 was occupied.which connect the road with the river. By a judicious reeounoissano*. he found that he onuld advance upon No 3 to the best advantage. He did so accordingly. A 9-pounder. loaded with oannister, was discharged at them ; but fortunately Its content! paused mostly over their head* They gallantly stormed the work ; and the enemy retired at all points, leaving two 8 pounder* unmounted aod 9 000 musket cartridges in the hands of our troops. This was accomplished with a loss of one man killed and t> wound ed. Upon the full of No. 3. about 4pm, the enemy abandoned No 1, (nearest the riv t.) and Lieut. Rldgley, turning his Ore upon No. 3. and upon the rear of the breastworks, they soon evacuated the whole line. It is but simple justice to Lieut Kldgley, to say that this movement was accomplished In the most gallant and skilful manner; and the credit awarded to him should be shared by Lieut Clinton Lear, 6tn infantry, and Lieut Gluts, of Pennsylvania volunteers. Hergeaut Hiram K. Carter, commanding (K) company 4th inUntry. on this occasion, and Sergeant T.

Iler voice is decidedly good, particularly in the upper region*, Hiid its quality is tolerably equal throughout. Her method we do not ndnriire ; it is certainly dashing, and calculated to win applause from th crowd ; she vocalizes with much facility, but the conbUnt change of the vowel sound upon cadenzas of one breath must ever be a bar to a perfect method. A want of finish ih perceptible in all she does; her force is rude, uncnustened by clear judgment. Her action, like her singing, is merely mechanical, being deficient in that natural impulse which is irresistible in its influence upon the operators But we do not pass this judgment upon Signora Trufli as our final opinion, lor there may be much behind, which a firm appearance before a new audience in a new country has hidden, but which may appenr when familiarity with her situation has brought perleci confidence. * * * On the whole, the performance ot "Ernani" cannot be compared favorably, in any way, wilh the Havana company.
