I'olunteert of New York in the Inveil ment and Capture of the City of Mexico, at the Battin of Contrerut and Churubusco. The volunteer brigade, commanded by Brig. General Shield*, to which the regiment under my command belong*, left the oitj of ruebla on the 8th, and encamped at Ruena Vista on the 11th. In full view of the country surrounding the city of Mexico, and arrived at San Auguitin In position for the investment, on the 10th day of August, 1847. Generals Dllow and Twlpg*, with the .Id and 3d diviiion* o( regulars, left San Augustin on the morning of the 10th. a&dat 3 o'ciook P.M. the New York and South Carolina regiments were ordered to their support,(under Brig. General Shields. The regiment marohea immediately, leaving Major Burnham with a force of about one hundred men, consisting of oompany C, under the oommand of Capt. Barclay, Lieut*. Sherwood and Boyle, a detachment of thirty-five men of different oompanies, and twelve sick. The regiment pursued it* way across the Pen*, a series of ledges of rooks and chums, with great difficulty; and at the deep ravine, through which a torrent fall* seme eight or ten feet, lo*t their way, and returned to San Augustin. At uiiuuikuv wo xoscubu tun Tiuage ur o?u vmuuiuia, IU drenching rain Kvery but was ootupled; and our troop* wet and weary, were obliged to stand under ai ma in the road until daylight, when the enemy'a work* in the Immediate vicinity of the Tillage were to be atormed by the 'id dirinion of the regular*. We then repaired to the ohuroh and other abetter in it* neighborhood, by order of (ten. Shield*, to prepare our arm* for aotion. A* the aun roae, the cheem of the storming party were heard, and our men aa*?mbled to meet the leglona of the enemy, who were retreating on their fortification* nearer to the olty of Mexico. We captured three hundred and thirty eix prisoners, and amongst them wa* one general, two oolonels, and many subaltern officer*, with at least two hundred stand of arms, lane? s, horses, bo. The regiment ?u then ordered to return to its former position at the church, trom which small oommands were sent to overtake straggling parties of the enemy, in whioh they were particularly successful, under the command of Captaii) J. P. Taylor and his first Lieutenant A W. Taylor. At about ?> o'clock A. M. we received orders to advanoe upon the rlty of Mexico, leaving company D and about flfty mew of other companies, that had not vet returned from scouting, in charge of the prisoners. We marched from the village ot San Geronima with about three hundred, officers and men. After passing through San Angel and halting for a short time, the second division of regulars engaged the enemy in front at Chuiubusco. We were soon ordered to countermarch, and directed, with other troops, to turn the enemy's right, and reaoh the rear of that formidable position. The New York regiment was now upon the right of the brigade. We followed a roadway for about one mile, crossed a ditch into low, wet grounds, pursued our way for about one mile Had an half more, through cornfields nod marshes, and reached the enemy's right and rear at I.ob Tortalei. The whole line, in consequence of the character of the ground over whlirh we pasted, was very much extended, ho that a few minuted wa lost in forming uih regiment to the front During thin time it was discovered that the enemy's works were flanked by an embuikmi>nt, with a deep Jltoh extending parallel to a r.iadwuy for more than a mile to Ihe rear and to the hacienda of Los rorialos This formidable breastwork and hacUnda were occupied by at least tnree thousand Infantry, besides large bodies of cavalry, it was not until our line was formed to charge this work that the enemy was discovered, with large bodies of other troops, endeavoring to turn our left; but we had now reaohed a poiht where we were receiving a random Are from the enemy's line at a distance of about three hundred and fifty yards. The order to charge was received with oheers. and the regiment advanced to within one hundred yards of the enemy's line under a most terrifio fire, in which I was wounded in the left leg by an esoopetto ball, compelling ma to turnover the command to Lieut. Col. Charles Laxter.? The regiment being as yet entirely unsupported, it was. thor 'ht advisable to retire until the South Carolina reglrni-ut, in our rear, oould come ui> and form on our It ft, which that gallant regiment did in most haudsome sly\- (Jen. -Shields then ordered the two regiments, or pf s or regiments, to charg* on the enemy's line, which !'i"iy did most bravely, up to the bayonets of the enemy, b:raking th*ir line, crossing the ditch, and reaching the roadway, where we plauted the standard of our states and Nation. But this advantage was gained at a great loss; oat of less than three hundred offlcera and men who entored the field, one hundred and nve were Kiiiea >au wounaeu a irw Wfri- now sent duck to (ee to the dead and n ounded. The remnantsof the two regiments were again muerad to advance upon the ci'.y of Mexioo. In adva*olr,g, the enemy retired in pretty good arder until we were joined by n piece of artilierv, captured from the aneiny, u'nd comuauded by Captain Ayree, of the 3d regiuient U S. artillery, manned principally by volnnteerr This piece *iu tired several linn s at the column of cavalry, after which the enemy retired Id disorder We were then halted, and ordered back to Los Portali<s la this desperate engagement, where almost all were heroes, it is difficult to name those who most distinguished themselves, as all who were there may ever remember with pride that they participated in one of the most daring charges ever made by Americans against an vnemy There were those in the command who were foremost anil steadiest in every movement, from whom I take occasion to name Lieut Col. Charles Baxter, who had two horses shot und?r him during the engagement; Captains (turret Dyckman, Daniel E. Hungerford, Abram Van Olinda, Morton Fairohild, and Lleuts Mavne Reid, (commanding company B) who particularly distinguished himself; Jacob (iriffln, Jr, company ii, Charles K. Brower, commanding company F;J. Miller, commanding oompany A; John Rafferty, company K; Charles 8 Cooper, company A; Charles H. Innes. company O; Jaa H MoCabe, company K; James W.

The State color waa gallantly carried by Sergeant Hog era, of company J, during the battle. Orderly Serg't Barber, of company J, O S. Kit zgerald, of company K, and O. 8. Wllaon, of company O, who after being wounded ao that ha could not uae hla muaket, aaaiated Captain Ayrea In dlreoting the piece of artillery. Adjutant Robert A Caater, behaved gallantly throughout the engagement,and waa aent at on* time for medical aaaiatance, and during hia abaence, aa well aa throughout th day, Capt. J K II u ton United Htatea Commissary, and Lieut. Ueorge B llall, A. A. Quartermaater, aaaiated the commanding *fllo>r, and rendered the moat eMoient services It ia with the highest pleasure tlmt I recommend to your notice Asslstaut Surgeon M B lUtrt-ail, acting surgeon of the regiment; nis skill and activity can be alluded to by you with higher encomium* than my own. He wan with the wounded prisoners In the morning, and with our wounded in the evening, and night and day, ever since, In our hospital and in attending to the wounded of other corpe. He speaks in the highest terms of Dr John () M'Kiblin, acting assistant surgeon, who rendered him efficient aid In the performance ef hia duties To Dr. riwitt, United States Army, I would here return my most sincere thanks for his oare and attention It is with the deepest regret that I mention the death of Lieut Kdg?r Chandler, who fell early In the action, whilst fearlessly standing by his oolors. In conclusion, I would say for my gallant regiment, that It was the third tension In whloh we served under the same commander a.iiiwlth equal succens I have the honor to be very respectfully, yours, WARD B.

The Major General commanding the division, and the Hen nil ol brigade, have each dealred him to say that they shall, on some future occasion, dwell moat fully upon the merits ol the regiment, but that in the meantime they request him to thank the officers and aoldiera of hia command forth* very gallant manner in which they have conducted themselves throughout the bloody tlelds of the battles of Mexico It is a matter of surprise to ua, aa it ia unaccountable to many of the distinguished officers of the Mexican army that are now priaonera with .us, that our small brigade ahould have been sueceeaful at I.oa Portalea. Since writing my report, I have learned that the whole reserve of the Mexican army was there?that the line ot embankment and ditoh, with the hacienda, were occupied by four thousand Ave hundred Infantry, Instead ol tbree thousand-and that the two column* ot cavalry in sight did not amount to leas than lire thousand. it. aides thin, in our immediate vicinity, aad on our right, the force engaged with the divisions of Generals Twiggs and Worth is said to have amounted to twenty thousand men If the flight of the enemy can be attributed to.:iny thing, it must be to the Indomitable spirit of our men.who rushed upon their bayonets, broke their lines, and threw themselves In their rear, produoing an impression on their part that our whole force was to follow. lie this as It may, the field wax gloriously won; and to both officers and men I tender my heartfelt thanks for their coolness and gallaiitry upon this oocaalnn Their fame will soon Teach the Htate whose banner they so nobly sustained, and the highest reward that a soldier can desire will be theirs : the grateful acknowledgements of their fellowcltliens. It is a sad truth, however, that this honor has been purohased by the sacrifice of many brave and gallant spirits, endeared to us by the ties ef ieng and aotive service After a trifling loss in the morning, more than one third of the command was killed and wounded at Los Fortales. There are but a few in our ranks who do not retain upon their persons marks of the enemy's shot, whilst more than forty were bit twioe, and mauy three r time*, before they fell. The gallantry displayed at the colors, which were always In advanoe, and where so many were shot down, deserves particular notice. It w?s here that the gallaat Chandler fell. The national colors first fell from the bands of the gallant llnmaine into Corporal Lake's, who was immediately woumled then Into the hands of Private Tweedy, of company B who shared the name fate It was saved from falling to tne ground by u. S. uoreinuji, or company A. who carried it during the remainder of the action.

[From the fuebla Flag of Freedom ] The late investment of the American garrison at thin place by the Mexican army, furnishes another shining proof of the heroism of our troops and the superiority ot our people. The Pennsylvania battalion, under Lieut Col H W. Uiack, numbering about 200 men, formed, agreeably to (Jon. Scott's order, ' the main body of the garrison." There was a large number of invalids in the ospitata; but few of them were capable of bearing arms in an emergencr requiring fortitude and physioal strength, as well aa courage. ^Thls meagre force was nur rounded by an enemy with an army, according to bit own account, of eight thousand men, led by several distinguished generals, and directed in chief by Hants Anna. It was summoned to surrender on honorable terms, and threatened with extermination if it refused Its gallant commander, Col Childs. heroically rejected the proposition, and San Jose. Loretto and Uuadalupf ra?g with the About of exultation and defiance with which our troopa heard the aummooR of the foe and th? answer of their ohiet. The eneuiy attempted the rm cutlon of hiit threat, and wm repulsed in every new ef fort, and. at last, after a sixty davs siege, was forced t< abandon his positions and seek bis own safety in flight The''six hundred sick Yankees," as they were sneer iagly called, were more than a match for the eight thou sand valiant Mexicans, led on by the Napoleon or ihi South' Contrast the conduct of this garrison with Ilia of Vera Cruz, where the position of the combatants wai reversed Our force there was about ten thousand met altogether; but not more tbitn half that number wtr actively engaged against the city. After three day bombardment, the impregnable castle of San Juan d Ulua and the walled city, with It* Immense armamen and a garrison of 5000 regular soldiers, yielded to ou arms! The difference in the result of the two sieges ws uwiug solely to the diJerence of our positions in themwhen we were on the outside we got in, and when li we remained there until It pleased our fancy to com out. Cerro Oordo and New Orleans may be coi trasted in the fame way, to prove the ssiue poln although the character of our adversaries ws not the same In both instances. At New (>j | leans we won a victory behind breastworks twelve fee r high, and defended almost exclusively by small armi i against nearly three time-) our uumbers. At Cerr Gordo we achieved a triumph no less brilliant over ou enemv. three times as strong as ourselves, who was en trenched on almost inaccessible height*, and support ei by thirty pieces of artillery. In Europe, the streugtb o defenses is estimated by the relation the parts bear t each other ; with ns. it is known by simply ascertainini which side the Americans occupy.

It should, however, be born? In mind that the responslblty of the war. as before observed-that Is to say. the determination of its necessity and righteousness, rests not on those who serve in the army, but on the noDstltuted authorities of the country, whose orders It is the soldier's duty to cbey and execute. He should. , to be sure, In bis private capacity, desire and pray that he may never be called to do battle but in a righteous cause?righteous on the part of hla government. Still as a general rule, it Is his duty to submit to the official , determination of the authority of the country over hiin and with courage and might to prosecute in his station the war It has declared or sanctioned. And without refernnoe to the origin of this war, it is unquestionably our duty as officers and soldiers, vigorously to wage it in order to obtain the ends for whfoh It exists, and tt conquer a just and honorable peace, as its happy conclusion. In the prosecution of this war, waged as It hai been, with the most scrupulous regard on our part to the laws of warfare recognised by the oivillsrd and Christian nations, valor in the part of the soldier, whether in command or In the ranks.
