On that information, which has slnoe reoeived tbe fullest verification, I addressed to him my note of tho 6th ?

Bvt Maj Wright, (he commander; Cspt Mason and I.lent Foster, engineers, all severely wounded. This severe shook staggered, for a moment, that gallant band The light bat talion, held to cover Huger's battery, ander Capt K Klrby Smith, (Lieut Col Smith belnj sick.) and the right wing of Cadwalader's brigade, were promptly ordered forward to support, which order wait executed in the most .ilant ttyie, the enemy wai u;aia routed, and tbla point of his ltue carried, and fully possessed by our troops In the meantime Oarland's (1st) brlgtde, ably suetalned by Capt.

While this worlc was iu progress of accomplUhmeut by our cenitrs and right, our troops on tbo left were not idle. Duncan's battery opened on the right of tbo enemy's line, up to thin time ingiged; and the] 3d brig tde, under Colonel Mclntoab, wnn now ordered to assault the extreme right of the enemy's line Th ) direction of this brig tde soon caused it to murk Duucan'a b?ttury?the fire of which, for tke moment, wan discontinued; and the brigide moved steadily on to the arsiUlt of Carta Matt, wbicb, insti ad of an ordinary field entrenchment, aa waa supposed, praved to be a strong stone citadel, surround'd with bastloned entreuchmeuts and impassable dUchu?i--an old Spanish work, reoentlv repaired and enlarged When wlthlu easv musket rang*, the enemy opened u most diaily Are upou our advancing troop*, which was kjpt up, without ! intermission, until onr uulUut men reached the very lope of the parnpwt of the work that aurrouuded the citadel lly this time. 4 large proportion of tho command was cither killed or wounded, amongat whom were the three senior ctBcars present- Brevet Col Mcintosh, Bravet Uout.

In this crisis of the attack, the command was, .momentarily thrown into disorder, and Ml bvik on the left of Duaoau'e battery, where they rallied. As the 'id brigade moved to the aisault, a rery large cavalry and Infantry foroa was discovered approaching rapidly upon our left, flank, to reinforoe the enemy's right. As toon as Duncan's battery was masked, as betore mentioned, cupporUd by Andrews' voitlgeurs, ot Cadwalader s brigade, it moved promptly to the extreme lelt of our liua. to oheck bha threatened assault on this point.

To economise the llvsa ot our gallant officers and men, as well as to ensure suooess, it became indispensable that this resolution should b? long masked from tha enemy ; and again, that the new movement, when discovered, should be mistaken for a feint, and the old as indicating our true and ultimate point of attack Accordingly, an the sp'it, the 1 ltb, I ordered Quitman's division from Coyoaoaa, to join Pillow, by day ii|ui, vBiuri kuc i juuinni |im, Mid men IQIl IB* 1*0 major itncrtli, with their divisions, should, by night, proceed (two mlltt*) to join ma at Taoubaya, wh>r?
