A shell also burst under the quarter of the Spitfire, and split one of her boats. During the whole of to-day, (23d) Qen. Patterson, in conjunction with the Navy, lias been making the moat extraordinary exortions to finish an entrenebmeut to Plant a marine battery, consisting of three fid's and two long 32 ?. Which have been landed ilnrlnir tint I' mi rati at l bo Jay from on boar J JilTureut vessels of war The officer* and sailors have heretofore borno the brunt of ail thu labor in lauding tho arm* and munitions of war belonging to the ariuy. and liare applied them-elres to it with au energy that certainly entitles tbam to grout credit ; but now that they had au opportunity of participating in that part of tha expedition whara honors ere to be won aud laurol* gathered, they exerted lli*-uiielvee with an ultuoit euperhumau effort. About 'J00 volunteere and sailor* were attached 'to i-uoh piece of ordnance, which wa* by them conveyed over eaud hlUa and hollow* half knee deep in aand. and through a lagoon about two feet deep and 76 yard* wide, with a eoft bottom. They were all placed In potltlou, about three mllee from whero they lauded, during the night. The aallore aud tho volunteers worked admirably together. r) uriiig tlio early part of last evening the town was lighted up by a building on Are. which was ignited by the bomb shells. It was Impossible to toll what building It was. but It wus supposed by tbe etigineort to be the barracks. As soon as the lire was discovered from our mortar battery, 1 was very uiueh gratified to observe the cessation of our fire?for notwithstanding we were eudeavoring to destroy their town, or compel them to surrender it. with their other strongholds and fortifications, still humanity would seem to require that a temporary cessation of hostilities should take place under such circumstances. War-is terrible In its most modified form; but the beselging of a city like Vera Crux, when we know that we are battering down the houses over some fellow creatures' heads, but cannot tell whether we are destroying the soldiers?our real antagonists?or the women and children. And then to wituess the burning houses lighting up the churoh spires and domes of tho prominent buildings, with the families moving about ou the tops of the houses in the utmost consternation and apparent despair, cannot do otherwise thau excite a feeling of oommisseration. March 24, 1847.?After tho fire In town last night, our batteries again opened, and continued until morning. During the day tho army guns have worked vory slow, on account of a short supply of ammunition, being provented from landing any yesterday by tha norther. Curly In the morning Oen. Patterson let the town hear freni him. The entrenohments and guns were entirely uudiscevered by the Mexicans, until the '' sailor lads ' commenced unmasking. They soon commenced pouring into the city a severe and effective tlrw, until about 4 o'clock, their position being only 600 yards from the walls of the town, and with such a range as to enabls them to flank most of the fortifications and works from whence the enemy was firing. j n* iouowing am mo bush ami wvigut 01 me gUDK, with their officers. as far as I could learn them I'otomao?1 32-pounders, 03 cwt., Capt.

At 4 o'clock the offlcora and crows from tho nary wero relieved by the following: Capt. Mayo, Lieuts. 8cmmes, I)u Camp. Frailey and Studinan.

Majaw and Upshur. 2?tk.?To-day the oombatants appear to be more eager on both sides, and the firing more rapid?the army battery mounts 11 ten-inob mortars, four long 24's and four Cohorns. During the morning, the Mexicans concentrated their fire as muoh as possible upon Oen. Pattereon and the nary, but the return fire through the day illeuoed two of tnelr batteries, and the navy breached the walls in different places. Midshipman Shubriek and | three sailors wore killed, and one mortally woundod.? Mr. Shubnck's death was announced at noad-quarters in the following laconic note, by tho commander at the entrenchments: " Mr. Shubrick has been killed at his gun fighting." On inquiry, 1 learned tho following particulars, as follows : He was shooting at a gun in one of the bastions in the rear of the city, and was watching the effect of his shot upon that piece of artillery when a ball from the piece he was shooting at struck nim?but the last shot he fired dismounted the pieco that killed him?thus. In all probability, both artillerists lost their lives In shooting at one another almost simultaneously. List or V?:??ei.?-of-Wak orr Vxaa Cmux.?U. H. steamer Mississippi, (flag-ship of Com. Perry.)

[From the Now Orleans Delta, April 4.] it wan our pleasure last evening, to be Introduced to Major ivleCullougta, the celebrated partisun officer or Texas Hanger. He arrived in the city hint evening, and brings the latest uews from Gen. Taylor's ramp. The General, after the buttle of liuena Vista, having fell bn'ustlcd that there was nothing to bo apprehended from Santa Anna nnd his discomfited troopn. turned hin attention to Ur- , run, uud the clearing of the road from Moutorey to , Camargo, infested by Ids command, regular troops and ran- i churns-. With this view, taking with him what he deemod to be a sufficient force, he net out ou the Kith ult., ' from Saitillo, touching at Monterey. When thirty miles met Col. Curtis and bin com- | maud,about which Urrea and his forces hung, looking out lor so rim propitious moment to attack them, but fearful to nialcc the chargo. As soon as Gen. Taylor cams up to the fprres of Col. Curtin, he formed from both cominauils a division, with which he went in pursuitofUr- 1 rea, determined to draw a fight out of him, or drive him > beyond the uiouatains?which latter alternative there is no doubt. Ur rea resorted to. Col. Curtis, in tho mean- j time, quietly proceeded on with his train to Monterey. '1 be war in this section of the country is now ended? j of this there is no doubt. ' Fhiladklshia, April 11, 1947. j The Southern mall of this morning, brought confirmatory accounts, embracing all the details of tho brilliant achievements of our army and navy at Vera Crux, and tho public were duly apprised of them, by moans of extras Issued at an early hour. Monday evening next, has been recommended by Mayor Swift as the time for the general illumination of the city. Tho public fooling Is so intense, and the joy 00 universal, that there van be no iloubt of ito being participated in by all our citizens. Tbo spectacle will be a most brilliant one. The whig meeting of Saturday evening, to ratify the party nominations for Governor and Canal Commissioner. was very well attended, nnd'a large number of their most eminent speaker* delivered spirit-stirring addresses upon ilu-occasion. The nomination of Gen. Taylor for the presidency, was enthusiastically responded to by the mas* present. A resolution was passed recommending the Illumination on Monday evening next, as proposed by ths Mayor, and tlio snmo course will probably be pursued by the democratic meeting called fur this evening, to deviso measures for a general demonstration of Joy at the sue. eoss attending our arms, and the prosppcct of a speedy peace. A saints of one bnndred gnus was fired this morning, In honor of the triumph, and another is to be given this svuuiug.

I New York, TaMcUy, April 13, 184T. Tlu- Cluu tor UUcUmi. This day our citizens are called upon to exercise the rights of freemen, in choosing, from among themselves, officers to manage our city government for the year 1847. The polls open at sunrise, and will close at sunset. We give, in another column, a list of all the candidates put forth by all the different parties in the field; and. alto, u list of the several places where the polls will be held. THE OFFICIAL DESPATCHES FROM VERA CRUZ. THE HISTORY OF THE ACHIEVEMENT. We publish in this day's New York Herald, the additional and highly important news received front Vera Cruz yesterday afternoon, including General Scott's and Commodore Perry's ofiicial despatches?the incidents of the siege?a list of the killed and wounded, and % list of the vessels cast ashore by the norther. In order to convey to our readers a bird's eye view of the achievements of our army aud navy in this affair, we publish four illustrative views? one of the landing of the troops under General Scott?another, a correct plan of the City of Vera Cruz?the third, an engraving representing the Castle of San Juau de Ulua before its capitulation?and the fourth, a beautiful view of the city and castle after they capitulated, and while the American fleet was saluting the American flag, which now waves over both places. These views we have before given, but we re-publish them now to illustrate the event of the day. The following is, in brief, the principal terms of the capitulation, as furnished to the Union hy Col. Totten:? That the garrisons should lay down their arms as pri-" sonera of war?officers retaining their swords ; that tney should march ont with the honors of war?saint ing the flags of city and castle from their own batteries, on striking them, at the moment the troops were surrendering their arms; that the troops, regulars and irregulars, should be discharged and dispersed to their homes, under parole given upon their own rolls and by their own officers. not to serve against the United States until duly exchanged?officers giving, at the same time, their own parole for themselves individually ; that all public property of every description should become the property of the united States ; that such portions of the armament as may not bare been destroyed during the continuance of the war, may be liable to be restored by stipulations In 1 the treaty of peace ; that private property Is to be luviolate, and not liable to be taken without arrangement with the owner t that the religion of the Inhabitants. Its Institutions and eeremonies, are solemnly guarantied ; that officers and men under parole may remain In the city to settle private affairs, not to oxceed five days. There is a diversity of opinion among our citizens as to the result that the recent achievements of our armies in Buena Vista and Vera Cruz will have on the Mexican government and people. Many suppose that peace is no nearer than if this capitulation had not taken place. They say that the Spanish character is such, that the enemy will fight until either party is annihilated; while others think that peace propositions will soon be tendered to our government. The latter class refer to that part of the capitulation which states that the armament of San Juan de Ulita is not to be removed, but it liable to be restored to Mexico on the tonclusion of a definitive treaty of peace. Our private despatches represent Col. Harney's charge on the Mexicans on the road to Medellin to have been one of the most brilliant and daring military inauceuvreH on record. Such being the case, we regret to see no mention made of it in the official despatches. We presume, however, that ( en. Scott was so much hurried when he made them out, that he had not sufficient time to allude to the feats of any particular officer. Single copies of this day's Herald, in wrappers for the mails, can he obtained at the office at two cents each. . Mismanagement in the New York Post Ok imck.?We desire, for the twentieth time, to call the attention of the public and of the Po6t Master General, to the manner in which the affairs of the New York Post Office are conducted, and to the manner in which our attempts to obtain late news for the benefit of our readers are frustrated. On three several occasions within a few months, intelligence of the most vital importance to the commercial community of the whole country, as well as to our citizens, reached the post office, directed to this journal, by the southern ! mail, which arrives here every afternoon. Instead of receiving these despatches in the even- i ing of the day on which they arrived, they were permitted to remain in the post office all night, ami not delivered to us till next morning. One of these despatches contained an important debate in Congress, which our citizens were most anxiously waiting for. On Sunday last, at about two o'clock in the afternoon, despatches containing the principal part of the very important news which we published in the Extra HtralA yesterday "afternoon, reached the Post Office here, and yet they were not put into the customary place, but were permitted to remain somewhere beyond our reach nil night, and were handed to us yesterday morning. These despatches contained further particulars of the capitulation of Vera Cruz and San Juan de U16a?a list of the killed and wounded of our urmy and navy?a complete list of the vessels that were driven ashore by the norther iu the Gulf? the information that Alvarado was about to be attacked?the intention of General Scott to push on to the interior, and other extremely interesting and important intelligence. All this we should have published in yesterday's Herald but for this mismanagement in our city Post Office. This news was ohtuined by us at great expense, and after ull our exertions to serve the public, without reference to eost, had succeeded und were crowned with success, the 1 cup was dashed from our lips, and all that intelligence so important to the mercantile community in a business point of view, and so interesting to them and the people at large, was withheld from them. We ought to have received that intelligence on Sunday afternoon. If we had received it at that time wc wonld have publiahcd if, nnd sent it over the whole country, in our regular edition yesterday morning. It really is too bnd that we are compelled to speak so much of the had management of our post ofiice. It is not on our account that we care so much as wr do, neither is it the Herald that is injured so much by the mismanagement of the mails. We are, to he sure, affected by it?but not a tithe so much as the merchants are. When w ill we have things remedied ! .Mr. Morris assured us on a late occasion?twice, indeed?that an omission of this kind should never occur again ; but here wc have had n tion of it. Will it ever occur again 1 If it does, we shall be compelled to employ special messengers to bring our despatches direct to our 1 office, and not depend upon the post-office for their early delivery. If we had not run an express from Mobile to Montgomery, the public would not have had the intelligence of the capture of Vera Cruz till yesterday, whereas they had it spread before them early on Saturday. Late rnoM Havana.?By the ship Sutton, Cnpt. Galloway, we have ftlea of the Diaro and the Mariana to the 1st instant. No news of consequence. The Sutton brings the Italian Opera Company, numbering seventy-one persons. Jcrsey City Election.?The charter election yesterday, in Jersey City, resulted in a whig majority on the wholo ticket of about 200 P. C. Hummer being re-oleeted mayor. i ( ?WW" ' 1 J J .JJL.UL-Lii.iiJM I. mfr JM THIS DAY, ATRII. 13 NAMES OF < ANDIOATE* Mato?alt> TlCBilT. WAi*. Democratic. W. V. Braily. J. 8. Brownell. E.O.Di?ie.
