[Krom the Now Orleans Picayune, .March 3ft. | The eorreepondent of the Tropic, writing on the 11 th inst , mentions that a report was in circulation that Panned Midshipman Rogers had been recaptured, but declares that, it is not true. The Delia has tho following paragraph on tho subject:? During the advance upon the rear of the city, ruffled Midshipman Rogers, who had not yet been sent from Vera Cru*, was bound on a cart and ordered to be conveyed, under guard, to the prison at Pcrote; but fortunately they were encountered by our forces, and Mr. JlogcrN was rescued and is now on board his ship. We most devotedly hope this mav be true: but the t Tropic't intelligent correspondent positively contradicts * it Our own correspondents make no mention of it, r though wv tliiuk it could hardly have ramped Mr. Ken- * doll were it true, a* ho writoa from ou board a vessel of war. and fool* a .Tory peculiar interest in Mr. Rogers'* welfare. Our apodal correspondent in the squadron wrote us that lie wu* ordered to Pcroto on the 11th of t February, aud that he set forth on hia journey on the t I6tli. We have later letters from hitn In which no makes ? no alteration in his statenient. although Mr. Rogers was n very yoar friend. Still, though wo fear it is " hoping t against hope,"' we ardently pray the news of his rescue may bsj true. b U. H. Stkamsiiip Alabama. > ^ hobos Island, March 3, 1847. j ^ The Alabama sailed from Tampico offing at a o'clock J this morning, and wo have just arrived (half past 10 A. ? M.) at the Lobos anchorage. Wo learn that the Por- " poise came to this place yesterday and communicated n with (Jen. Scott, who immediately proceeded, with sonic J twenty five transports, containing Twiggs' und Worth's ' divisions, to Anton Lizarilo. Wo wore met ahout an * hour ago by a pilot boat, which brought orders for Oen. 4 Patterson, aud minute sailing orders for Capt. Wlndle, '' the accomplished commander of this ship. The most in- ' tense anxiety was manifested by Oen. Patterson and all ' on board, until it was known that wo wero to proceed c directly onward. We remain here only long enough to } allow the transports to communicate with (ion. Patter- J| son. which will occupy but a few moments, as the small >' boats from a dozen ships are already putting off to us. 1 Those vessels have already weighed anchor and uufurlcd u their sails, ready to put out to sen. As the wind is light n and ahead, and the Alabuina a swift sailer, wo shall uu- ' doubtedly he at Anton Lixardo as soon as the foremost b of those who have gono ahead. '' It is now only 11 o'clock, and we are off. sure enough ! l' The noble Alabama is lending the way in gallant style. * and Die transports, with all their cauvnss stretched, ure ' gracefully moving out of the anchorage. In a day or c two " we shall see what wo shall see," and If the Moxt- J cans at Vera Cruz do not " see stars," then wo shall see (? snakes, that is certain. " The Alabama has over 300 troops on board, consisting ? of a part of Col. Campbell's Tennessee regiment and one company of the 8th infantry. Besides Col- C. und a h number of his officers, we have tho following regular 1 officers, most of whom are attached to lion. Patterson's ( staff: Majors McCall, Abercrombio and Bennett, (U. S. li Paymaster,) Capt. Anderson of the artillery; Capt. ? McClellen, of tho topographical engineers; Capt. Wal- 11 ker, 6th infantry; Capt. Myers, quartermaster's depart - v inent ; Lieut.

March 6. o Wo reached this anchorage this morning, about l? b "o'clock, having been detained twenty-four by a severe a norther, which sprung''up about 4 o'clock yesterday morning, when we were about 40 miles north of Vera u Cruz. The gale was severe from sunrise until about IZ b o'clock, when it abated gradually, and at 10 o'clock last s< night it was perfectly calm We lay-to uutil daylight this morning, and then run h into this harbor, passing the city und castle near enougli ti to obtain a tine view of both. The Kdith. with Oen. o Worth; the Kudora. with (ien. Twiggs; and the Vlrgi- is nla. with lien. PIUow. had already arrived. Tho morn- h ing (as well as the whole day.) was beautiful, with a light breeze from the east, and shortly after our arrival, b tile transports begun to appeur aud have been running c< in and anchoring, all day. in a gallant style. At noon Is tho Massachusetts entered the harbor with Oen. Scott y on board, und passing through the tleet. anchored near si the tlag ship, Raritnn. from which n salute was ftrcd h As the general passed through the Uect lie received t< throe liciirty cheers from the troops on each transport, ti ,\ more oenumui spectacle than the harbor prcaented tl to-da i, could scarcely be conceived There uro sixty vessels present, nearly all of large size. To-morrow I h shall make it a duty to uncertain the name and size of n each, h ? well its the names of the regiments. and nuui- b her and character of the troops present. tl Ah wo passed hobos, day before yesterday, we e learned that the ship Veazie, which was then in the an- ci chorago. with three companies of the 'id Pennsylvania w regiment on hoard, had been visited by tho small pox. f( Kive ruses lind bwn reported. The troop* were about to be lunded on the island. Three other cases of small- a pox had been reported there aiming other troops. o Avto.v Lizaiioo. March 7, 1847. JJj In my letter of day before yesterday I communicated w to yon every thing of interest that had fallen under my ? observation since leaving Tampion, and announced our t| arrival here. Very few vessels arrived yesterday, but j, they are beginning to appear this morning, and dm the jf wind is fair and sufficient, it Is hoped that the most of the balance of the troops will come in to-day. Vester- r, day wns a day of excitement for every one here. A t| Vera Crux paper of the 4th was received in the licet, giving an account of a battle between ?>cn. Taylor and j, Santa Annn. I have been furnished, through the po- w lltencsu of (.'apt. Vinton, of the artillery, with a transla- t| tlon of Santa Anna's report, a copy of whieli is enclosed, jj, Tlie excitement and aiyilety caused hy this intelligence ^ is Intense ninong the troops No one believes that there ' is much truth in Santa Anna's report, hut many are t| fi'arful that the gallant old liougli and Jleady and his handful of troops have sutfered severely, though we all tj believe they have given the wooden-legged geutleiuau a sound thrashing. ?j f'amr mkar vrsa Carx, March 11. 1847. The work of investing the city of Vera Crux is going rapidly on, and by to-morrow morning it will probably be complete. A fire from tho batteries on tho laud abbot the elty has been kept up. witli short intervals, during (lie duy, yet few of our men have been killed. The ei army has to mourn the loss of ('apt. Alburtis. of the 2d w infantry, who was killed by an 18-]>ound shot. During Is a short notion this morning, with the cavalry of the en- w emy, Lieut. Col. Dickenson, of tho South (-arollna vol- tl uiiteer*. was seriously although not dangerously wound- tl ed?five men besides of this regiment worn wounded. !' Shells of tin- heaviest kind have been thrown to-day within (leu Worth's lines, but fortunately no one in vl tliis division lias been killed so far. The flghting as yet. at least so far as our men have been engaged, has Irt-cn tl with parties of infantry and cavalry, thrown out to nil- pi toy our columns as they advanced. To-night i learn that some of the tanks supplying the tl city with water will be cut off The entire army, although suffering much from marching over the sand m hills in the hot sun nnd from want of water.

It is cntlnrly w oo warm at this moment, and I am too much fatigued t rithal to recapitulate what 1 then told you. For t wo o ays I have been moving ubout over the sand hills. In be hollows and on the beach, watching the operations oing on. As yet nothing like a battle has been fought; 1< ut two dAys of most laborious duty and hardship have si ecn gono through with hy our troops. The engineers n iavc been kept incessantly occupied In exploring, reeon- h loitering, cutting roads, icc., while many of the troop* k iavc been operating in their footstep* and scouting h bout over hill and valley?freiiuetitly encountering h ,nd repulsing the enemy, composed of cavalry and innntry, in our vicinity. The e.astlo and the rity v lave not been Idle, but have kept up a pretty con- a tant blazing away at us whenever they thomht heir shots would reach far enough. In moat cases t ur people wero a little too fHr removed; hut un- * ortunatcly, although at a distance of two miles and a t lalf or more, their Are was too well directed, and some asualtien hud occurred in consequence. To-day about I o'clock, P. M.. (.'apt. Alburtia, of the 2d Infantry, was U astantly killed by a large round shot from one of the arts on the northwest side of the city. He was fully wo aud a half miles off. aud the shot which carried way part of his head, also severely wounded two other " ren. Poor Alburtia ! lie hus fallen almost before the " eginnlng of the fight. His friends will mourn him as a rave and generous spirit. Capt. Alburtia distinguished w imsclf in Florida. Besides ('apt. Alburtia. we have lost o-day some three or four others?not more. These t ere killed in skirmishing. F.urly iu the morning Lieut, ol. Dickenson, of the South Carolina volunteers, re- * oived a severe wound in the right breast near the ahoul- P er. by an etconelie hall. He is not supposed to be danerously wounded. I learn that a few others of our men " rero wounded this morning. We have killed or wound- rtl d more of the enemy than they bavo on our side. 1 have only room to state that nearly all the skirmish- >' ng and fighting on our part has been done under (leu h 'lllow, or rather by the forces in his hrigade. which with Jen. (Quitman's is now In position of investment. The ' me of investment is nearly completed, (lens Twiggs " nd Shield* have been moving to-day with the forces d indcr them. I am not yet prepared to tell you uudcr ' /noHO commands tne Uiltercut regiments of regulars and I1 hose of thu volunteers have been placed. Suffice It to ay, " the work goes bravely on It would be incrcdtilc were I to tell you how much work tana been done leru in two abort days, and that too uuder indescribable ^ hstacles?the greatest of which probably in the intolera- ^ ile heat.

But instead of pursuing this course.

Ae we hare before stated, the lighting on the 3*id of February- an unfortunate day upon which to attack an American urmy was confined principally tO cannonading and skirmishing with light troop* The bloody business wae done on the ?13d. which wuh opened by an attack from our aide under the direction of Gen. Wool. A portion of the advance win shaken by overwhelming number*, but wm supported by (Jen Taylor, who brought forward the reserve and decided the day by a resistless change. What Is here said In a few words required a day to consummate; and a recital of the incidents and inanteuvres which ended so triumphantly would demand tunny columns for space. An eye witness ?one who was near General Taylor's person nil the time with the exception of those intervals during which lie was carrying his orders oyer the field?Inform* us that not a man. wit It the exception above noticed, of UnAmerican lines wavered for an instant whilst faring the most galling lire and receiving the repeated charge* of the enemy, which, it is hut candor to say. were conducted with spirit and address As an Instance of the desperation with which hotli armies fought.. Mr. Urittciulrn. who acted as Gen. Taylor's aid throughout the fight, when asked whether the Mexican* had taken three pieces of ordnance from its. as Santa Anna reported, replied in the affirmative, and said that the guns were not given up till every man at litem was shot down, and every horse killed near them; and. moreover, that in hearing them off. the Mexicans suffered a loss of some six hundred men. They interfered tnudly ftetwoon the retreating guns mid our men seeking to regain them. These guns weru a pari, of (' apt. Washington's battery, under the command of Lieut. O'Brien. Lieut. O'B. was wounded before bis guns were taken, and when reporting his loss to Gen. Gen. Taylor, was complimented for his bravery?it was no fault of his Capt. Washington was in another part, of the Held, and sustained himself with great coolness und intelligence, as did Capls. Bragg I Sherman, with their respective batteries -In all but fourteen guns.

When Mr. Crittenden got amongst tlicm ue was taken by them to Sautn Anna with ills eyes bliud| folded. This he remonstrated against without effect. ! When he was brought to Hants Anna he woe asked his -ion. lie told hint he had no message for him; that a'as sent to ask a detached force to surrender to save (fusion of idood. and as his errand was uusticcessleinauded to be sent back to his general. It was t Santa Anna requested him to tell Gen. TayT he would surrender he would be protected cured for. Mr. Crittenden replied, that he hud no commission to speak with hitn (Santa Anna) upon that or any other matter, but It was no use to send any such message, as Gen. Taylor never surrendered. [From the Matamoras Flag of the 17th inst j Domingo Martinet an old. intelligent and wealthy citixon of Matainorus, reached here on Saturday evening last, from the Mexican encampment in the neighborhood of Ccrralvo. lie is plunged into the most profound grief in consequence of the loss of his son. a most promising VOllttl. the nrllln of the town um.mi, Sii own people. and very popular with thu American portion of the population lie reject* nil connotation ami. in tho 1 prosent distracted state of his aiiud can give no distinct detailed account of what took plaeu ut the attack near Ccrralvo?but hi.-, statement, ho far ns it goes, may bo rclietl on as correct.

But he must have been taught by the experience of these two day*, that neither the rugged steep of the mountain nor his fortified position, nor uuy oilier of his advantages, could restrain the Mexican soldier from buttling in defence of his country and her rights. Our soldiers tire indeed worthy of nil commendation, and I glory in the consciousness of being at the head of an urmy of heroes, who not only know how to tight bravely, but to suiter patiently both hunger and thirst for forty-eight hours, a sacrifice required of them by the nation, unu of which I have myself been ? witness The only painful reflection I have at this moment Is that not a biscuit nor a particle of rice ean be had here for our sick and wounded. We have subsisted, for many days, on meat alone Thus is verified the complaints I have heretofore made of the neglect this army lias suffered from, having to depend for supplies on its own resources during the last two months. I will now add that it is not possible to carry on the campaign successfully unless the army is provided witii all the supplies required in war. I therefore think of moving my camp, early to morrow morning back to Agun Nuevu, tnr<w leagues distant, to provide myself with sonic necessaries that must, have arrived at the hacienda of Knrurnaciou; and it I succeed ill obtaining those necessaries, and relieve myself of the incumbrance of the wounded, I will return to tile charge?in spite of my own wound, which lias reopened in consequence of being continually on horseback twelve hours of each day. In the iletulled account of this obstinate romhat, which I shall soon present, dlie yotic will lie given of the generals, chiefs, officers aJ^Lothcrs who have bravely fought, and poured out t^V blood in defence of the country. I have not been^Rlling to detuiu tills report for such details, supposing the ..Supreme Movernment would wish to have the earliest account of these successes. To-morrow or the day after I will cause to lie transmitted to your Kxcellency the said detailed account, together with a notice of subsequent, occurrences. leccpt, I pray your Kxcellency. with this explanation, the consideration of my particular esteem.

AFFAIRS IN MEXICO?TIIE REVOLUTION. [Correspondence of the N. O Picayune | U. S. Shfadaon, Anton Lizordo. March 7, 1847 By an express from Mexico I learned, day before yesterday, that a revolution ?|| in progress altended with tlghtiiig and bloodshed the object, of which was the de posing of < iomez Farias and the present Congress, the repeal of the law confiscating the ecclesiastical property I cannot learn that they have set up any particular chief, or form of government, as a substitute for the t xistiiig one. The friends of Santa Anna, and partlcu larly Almonte, are ostensibly engaged iui peace makers and it was a few days ago reported that they had succeeded in compromising the difference, but we hear by this express that the Insurrection bud broken out afrrili and that they had been lighting for three days The issue is not doubtful ?the fall of (iomez Farias aud tlie repeal of tile odious law The revolution is said to have been instigated by tlie priests, who ure ehnrgi d with using the weaker sex as their agents Vour classical readers may recollect a comedy of Aristophanes, iu which the Athenian matrons, in solemn conclave, determined to lay ii certain embargo on their lords until tliey coerced them into the support of certain political measures. The Mexican women, after the lapse of seventeen centuries, have revived the idea and applied It with ii degree of success transcending the fancy of the < trcclan tour writer Ho that this revolution is generally known in Mexico as the " pronunciumrnta dr ln? rangers." The revolution appears to have been invited by similar demonstrations in Onxiiea. On the 1 !ith of hebru.i ry. a meeting of malcontents was held in the convent of Han Domingo,' in the capital of the State of Oaxaca, headed by Fernando Martinez, and composed of officers of the army anil National liuard, together with some citizens, wlio proclaimed for sustaining the national re ligion by repealing the decree of llth January, confiscating (he church estates, annulling the function of the legislature and deposing Ortiaga. the governor, and all tlie executive and judicial officers The military commandant, l)e Juiiu Diaz, was,invited to place hiliifelf at the head of the movement; Diaz, according to his own report, tinding that he Intel not sufficient force to resist the revolutionists, advised to treat with them upon the best terms he could without resorting to bloodshed. The council of war overruled his pronosition. nnd the convent of Han Domingo was assaulted with grcnt spirit, until severs! of the leading officers aud about twenty men were killed mill wounded. After two hours' hard lighting Dinz drew off. and next morning declaring that Inhad despatches from tlie government, advising him that III., Ilil?ri|.|,?. l.n.l T,,mI,.,.I.. tin I, pose thi' difference, which Marline/. agreed to. nnd n commission was accordingly named.
