Granada, Oct. 16, 1868. COrNTVKMARCH ITFON Of AN ADA? TflK AUVANOB tiCARP VIBBB OPON?A GOOD POBI flOM?OH ABU!: IMTO TBI PLAZA? BATTLI OFGBANADA, ETC. Tbe Plaza oi Kt bebaatlan waa thronged with spirits flu*bed with tbe Joy of triumph. There were Ouay pm parat'.ona for proaecnUng tho work of vletory so auspl ciooaly began. The wounded were oomfiirtably provided (or, through tbe energetic and efficient action ot the Quartermaster'! Department and the vigilant and kindly ministration of the Medical 8ud in this oonnec ica It would not be Improper to add that the entire corps of surgeons connooled with the army were nnremlttlcg, during the oondlct of two days, in their kindnesa and attention* to those whose mlafor tones appealed fbr relief. Wherever their servicas were essential they were to be found, whether in tbe heat and turmoil of the conflict or la tbe refuge of the afflicted. The zeal acd devotion with which they prosecuted their dutlee blinded them to the contingencies of peril and exposed them to the dangers It was essential they should avoid. At ardent la chivaliio Impulse* a* they were persevering In piofcaalonal ambition, they did not disdain the field oi contention, and the fearleaanea* with which some of them essayed their efficiency wm Illustrated in the afflicting casualties they encountered. Among the wounded are enumerated On. Callahan, McUlhonny and Scott, of the army corps of physicians, who divided with their comrades [in misfortune tbe aUantlons of their lot kier brethren o' the stair. There were none so seriously disabled as to require convejanc* other than on horseback, and some were spirited enoogh to forego even that aooommcdatioa, ani venture the fktlgue ot the march on foot. The mcon was high In the heavi ns, and ?h~ne with such resplendent light as to throw a mysterious fasolna tioa upon the scene. Tbe theatre which so recently re veaied (ha resentfol Uaahot of human passion was now undisturbed by any sign of anger or oosteatloa. Tho places wblct were ohicured by tbe smoke of battle had become isdiant with silver light, and tranquil as the dreamless sleep o< infancy Tbe ohuroh in the centra of tbe Grand Plaza, that sanotuartad the antagonistic army, ai>d whose shrine waa desecrated by the murderous of ferings of implacabie enmity, looked heavenward n 1th an aspect as calm and guiltless as though sin and sbame hat not vie tale 1 its sacrcdness, nor tbe uahoiy priest* of a sanguinary creaa officiated with Imptaty at Its altars. Ho ca'rely and solemnly old the silvery moon encircle w*tb iia radiance the whole of tbe surroundlsg scene, thit It could senreely be credited that war. with desolating am bltioa, so lately bad reigned and triumphed with merd Ui? Ssnnity. At three o'clock In the morning the army was la readi ness for motion, and wltuont disturbing the sleeping dsai 7i n* of Massaya, or provoking from the enemy a vaiadlo lory demonstration, tho ooustermarch was ordered and the clt} evacuated. Tbe ramarkafcta quiet and unseat! netted condition of Maeeaya created the oonvtoMon that the enemy had made good their retreat ia the direction of I-eon, or bad lakrn one of the ramsrous roads insding in Granada. The latter suspicion wss il earned boots proba ble for rev era! rsnaoae. rhe eseaay daring the sfteraooa of th? fight, for some cause unknown to as. demonstrated their Joy by the rtsglng or bells, and by ? boats lad toe tive or reanttsstsd enthusiasm. It now became evident that tfcey had received latelllgence of the attack upon t.raaada. and flattering lafomiatlon of the spirit and soc cers with which the aesaslt was prosecuted. The posses ion oT that city was the niwntni t*mvm of their ajf Irallont, and to that end Choir ulmoet endeavors wars pereevertngty directed. To their Idea tiraaadn was lbs citadel of safety, and to regain that from Walker would be to overwhelm hua with defeat aad immortalue then selves with victory # It waa extremely probable, therefore, that, booysd with the iwpirttiac knowledge of the sntcr prieirg adventure oT a portion of their army, and animated with the heller that thetr oo operation wan only wanting to plana success tsyond a contingency, they bad evacuated ihetr fctrtliloallous In Maeeaya aai taken up the line of march to the oapttal. There waa little doubt Is the army of Walker but thai tho whole Inlmloal fores waa beisi oonasntrntod la Graanda, and that a das. per a is engagement would laevliably aasus before w* could re cntsr that city.
