Sis : On thn evening of the ICth instant, owing to thn Illness of brevet brigadier General Smith, I was placed in command of the 1st brigade of the 2d division, aud it is now my grateful duty to report the operations of that brigade in the actions of the 17th and 18th instant. Our encampment at Plan del Kio enabled th" engineer omccrs 10 muse ircijuiTii una Close observation* on tli^ enemy's position ; aud it wan ascertained that lie ha<i fortified himself en a range of hills for two miles in a mountain pane, and that the last of his works was on the Cerro Gordo. which, froin its position and defences, was considered almost impregnable. On the morning of the 17th the 'Id division, under the command of Brigadier General Twiggs, was directed to turn tbo enemy by the right Hank, and I was ordered by that officer to seise and maintain all the heights in the neighborhood of tho Cerro Gordo, which, from thuir proximity and position, might be of advantage i.i an attack on that fortress. Shortly after the column turned off to tho right from the main road. Brevet First Lieutenant K. Gardner, 7th infantry, was directed with his company to move to tho crest of'a lull ou the left, and to watch the enemy's movements. While in the execution of this order, Lieutenant Gardner became engaged with tho enemy, but he gallantly maintained his position against fearful odds, until ho was succored by tho riflemen under Major Sumner, and the artillery under Col. Cliilds, who drove the enemy, after a severe conflict, from their first position, and continued the pursuit until they made a second stand on a hill near the Cerro Gordo, within the range of their grape and csnnister, and from which our troops suffered a severe loss; but the hill was stormed and carried, and afterwards maintained, although the enemy made three successive charges to regain it. A portion of the troops under Col. Childs. led on by their zeal and Impetuosity, rushod down the hill to tho ascent of Cerro Gordo; hut as an attack was not intended at that time, thrv were recalled and joined Gen. Twiggs The rifles and 7tli infantry slept on the hill, and to that point were brought, in tlie night, a 24-pounder and two 24-howitzcrs, which, at 7 o'clock in tho morning, commenced a cannonade on the enemy's fortification on tho Cerro Gordo. Farly in the morning I was reinforced by four rompanies. 1st artillery, under Col. Childs, and six companies, 3d infantry, under Capt. Alexander, and I Immediately gave directions to the dllferent Commanders to prepare their troops for storming Cerro Gordo The rifles were directed to move to the left in the ravine, and to engage the eueiny; and I Instructed Mgjor Coring that, as soon as I discovered that be had commenced the attack, I would move forward the storming force whicli I was al?>ut to organize. The 7th infantry was formed on the right, the 3d infantry ?n the left, and the artillery was formed in rear of the infantry, with orders to support it. Observing that a isrge force was moving from the left on tho main road, toward* tho Cerro Gordo, I deemed it prudent to advance at once, and immediately ordered the charge to be sounded without waiting for the Ore of the riflemen The enemy poured upon my line a most galling fire of grape, caiiriister. and musketry, from different positions around tho hill; hut my troops advanced intrepidly and as steadily as on a parade day. I cannot apeak too ardently of their animation, zeal, and courage under surh trying circumstances, and without which they, never would have surmounted tho natural and artificial obstacles which opposed their progress. Around the hill, about. 60 yards from the foot, there was a breastwork of stone wmcn *im mieu wun Mexican troop*. who oiiom an oh*tinate resistance, continuing to lira until the troop* reached the breastwork. and where, for n few moment*, bayonets were crowed. Ueyond thle, end immediately around the fort, there w?* another work, from whirl) our advance wa* again obetlnntely opposed ; but the troop* immediately aurmounted It, carried the fort, pulled down the Mexican flag, and planted our color* amid the proud rejoicing of our troop* Agreeable to In*truction*, the rifle* moved to the left,, where they liecaine engaged with a euceoring force, but which they held in check, notwithstanding a moot galling Are from the enemy'* entrenchment* and from the musketry in front After the enemy * cannon had been captured, I directed Captain Mngrader to take charge ofthe placet, and to di rent their Are upon the enemy, which he executed with zeal and ability It i* alto due to l.ieutcnant. Richardnoil to Mate that. a* *oon n* he came Into tho fort, lie took po**c**lon of one of the enemy a gun*, and, with hi* men. promptly turned It with great effect upon the enemy. I al*e directed Lieutenant Colonel Plympton. at the same time, to move with hi* regiment into the .Inlapa road to cut off the enemy * retreat, which he promptly executed, and maintained hi* position until the fort* and force* of the enemy hail surrendered. Much I* a plain, but I know an Imperfert and baety. account of the action* of the l?th nnd 18tli inxt For further particular*, I would re*pectful!y reter the commander of the divieion to the reporte of the different commanders of regimennti,which RK H rvn-ETT^T^ -m M- m ^ J UK1NUNIjr, MAY 5il, 1847. are herewith enclosed.

ADVANC15 OK GEN. SCOTT. [From the V O. Delta, May 13 ] We spoke yesterday in terms of uertainty of (Jen. Scott's determination to advance on to the capital of Mexloo, without delay or procrastination: iudeed, we spoko of him Iwing by this time there, and this without reference to the arrival of tho deputation which it was said cumn to his quarters, offering him a peaceful surrender of tho city. The Picayune publishes a letter from Mr. Kendall, dated Jalapu, May 4th. in which ho says that the forward movement had been countermanded?that Gen. Scott had n solved to discharge the volunteers whoso term of service is about to expire, at Jalapa. and would not proceed further till reinforced by new troops. Although this announcement is made in positive terms, i?.t in ...v..., 1- ? ? j -? ? ??u."c<jueui imingutpu tuu writer BtiJB? "Ho may null go on to tho capital, even with what he has. for there nronot Mexicans enough in arm* to arroat biui; yet, whether such a course would bo prudent, or whether such are his intentions or not. is more thnn any one can suy who is not thoroughly into his secrets.'' Now. although Mr. Kendall's letter is dated five days later thau tho time at which our informant conversed with (Jen. Scott, wit are still inclined to believe that our statement is the more correct one. Gen Scott was unreserved in the development of his views to our informant, and at that time ?the 'J'Jth ult.?his purpose was fixed to proceed on forthwith to the capital, and the fact that the term for which so many of his men had enlisted was about to expire, was one of the main causes that urged his precipitation. He was not going, he said, to waste the fruits of his success at Vera Crux and Curro Gordo, hy inactivity and indecision. His force was limited?bis money and supplies still more so. lie would, however, push on. His force was sufficient to marc It to tho cupitul. and cause it to surrender, by doing it before the enemy had timo to rully uud make a well prepared resistuueu. Once there, be would trust to the governmeut to promptly and fully reinforce him As for money and supplies, both he was determined to have if they were in the country?not by plunder or pillage, but by giving his orders at sight on his government for every thing taken. These views he communicated to the Secretary of War, in his despatches of the 39th nit. Iii three or four days afterwards liu inuy have chaogad Ills opine .us and his whole plan of operations, though it is not very likely. [From thu Now Orleans Bulletin, May Id ] We stated yestcrdHy, on the authority of Gen. Pillow, that Gen. Scott had determined to advance without delay on the capital. This determination was probably made with the intention of retaining for the march, ail tlie volunteers whoso time of service was aliout expiring, but which would not take place until alter the artny could reach thu cupital. and they could be replaced by reinforcements now on their way to Vera Crux. By letters, however, received from headquarters, dated several duys after General P left there. It appears (Jen. Scott bad concluded to discharge at Jalapa those volunteers whoie terms were noarly expired, consisting of the [WO lenncsaee, mm ini; 1 irorgi* and Alabama regiments; ami though nothing positive ia kuown, that this will nllrr lit* previous intentions, of marching with out delay for the city of Mexico, the belief ia. that ho will not attempt going bnyoml 1'uebla until rainforoemonta shall join him. Notwithstanding all that has been said, aato the disorganization and dispersion of the Mexican army, there would evidently be great risk for Gen Scott, with his greatly reduced forre. to advance so tar Into nn enemy's country, where the whole population is known to be hostile, and w here they would rise liko bees and overwhelm him. in case of his army meeting with any check or misfortune It is also very evident, and indeed so is stated, in liis general orders, that the army will be principally dependent on the country for its supplies; and being thus cut loose from the sea coast,, it will be highly requisite he should have a sufficient force for the enterprise, which, under any contingencies that may arise, will enable him to look down all opposition. The whole force that landed at Vera Cruz, did not exceed 13.000 men?of those the garrison and the sick left at Vera Cru*. are about 1600?the loss at Cerre (iordo. 600; the sick and garrison of Jalaps. 1000; a garrison at I'eroto. 600; and the volunteer regiments now discharged, say '1600. makes an aggregate of GoOO; leaving an effective force of only 7000 men for the march on I'uehla We have placed tho garrisons at Jalnpa and I'erote at a very low, and in the disturbed state of the country, wc think, at a very unsafe number, i.ess than 1000 would also bo a very unsafe garrison to leave at I'ucbla, which is a city or HO.000 inhabitants, who could even overpower a much larger force. This would still further reduce (icn. Scott's force, and leave him only &()0() inon with whirh fn nrnonoil i r* I lm onri?nl counting any further deduction for the casualties nnil loosed on tli? march, I.'nder such oircuinstanop*. wo think there nun bo little doubt that for the present he will not attempt going beyond Fucbla If, bowcrer, (ten. Scott should continue in the intention of marching for. the capital, with his present means. the bettor plan would be to push forwnrd with his entire force, leaving no garrisons behind, and cutting himself entirely loose from his communications. The move would be a bold one, but probably safer than to weaken his main hody, by attempting to leave garr.sons in his rear, with a view to maintain his communications. which could bo re-opcuud by the reluforcemcnts now on the way to join him. Wo learn that the troops which have been, and still are, constantly arriving here, and which were to have reinforced (ieneral Taylor, have their destination changed, and will be sent forward with all possible haste to Oen Scott STATE <>F AFFAIRS IN TIIK CITY OF MKXICO. fKrom the N. O ricayuno, May I'J ] We yesterday had the pleasure of a conversation with Mr. Black, late American consul at the city of Mexico, who left there on tho 3d of April and arrived yesterday morning on tho brig K. K Fierce, < apt. < arr, in nine days from Tampico. Mr. Black on the 31st March, shortly after the njrival of Santa Anna from Buena Vista wheu no doubt the one-legged hero was exceedingly annoyed at tho immense labor lie had been at to manufacture a victory out of the battle of Buena Vista, and Twit in anything but an niniable mood towards the barbarous Norih Americans?received an order through tlie (iovernor to quit the capital immediately. This peremptory order *hi given, too, In I'assion Week, when no business. public or private, Is transacted, and when it is almost an impossibility to ohtuiti the assistance necessary to depart. Mr Black, however, succeeded in getting ready to leave in a day or two. and in having the archives of the legal ion packed, which ho brought with him, and demanded an escort, which was at first refused A variety of petty artifices were resorted to to entrap lilin into a position that would afford a pretext for his arrest anil imprisonment; hilt flnding'thein fruitless, he was granted an escort, and left the city on the evening of the 3d of April The order required him to embark from Tampico; and though he was promised, and was, according to tho usages of elvilixod nations, entitled to an escort the whole distance, he was furnished with one for only thirty leagues from the capital, to a place chiicu 1110 an .\ionte Krom this place to Tnraple ho was obliged to employ escort*. and sorry escort* they wore One of them, consisting of two mm. had a sword and a musket between thorn, the barrel of the inusket being fastened to tho stock with a cord; another. coinposed also of two men. had two oh! rusty swords between them; both escorts travelling on foot. Notwithstanding all this, he was not molested on the journey Krom .Mr. Hlack we have learned much that is Interesting and important In relation to the state of ntTalrs | in the capital We have later dates than he brings, but hi information Is of a character that can be ol>j laincd from an intelligent observer, who has had the , advantage of a long residence among the people he - peaks | of. 'I lie sincere federalists, both moderate and ultra, | are the most urgent for the prosecution of the war; not I because of a feeling of hostility to the United Htates. for I they desire, if there are no other nieana of establishing [BRA their system of government. an union with the I nitod States; but been Ufo they wish the whole race of military tyrants exterminated; and to destroy thoroughly the basis of their power, they look to the continuance of the war and the annihilation of the army. Many men or property, not belonging to thia party, and a number of the priesthood, seeing the utter bopclessriei* of success in contending wttli our armies. are also looking to the subjugation of the country an the only means of restoriug tranquility and securing them in their possession*. Mr Black confirms the report that many of the Mexicans suspect Santa Anna of treachery, and the clergy and the people, poor and rich, are murmuring against cXBCtlons to support a war which has resulted In nothing but disasters to the country The country is without arms there being scarcely anything left to theiu. since their recent defeats, but old aud almost us?l?s* small aims and very few cannon Mr. black, for this reason, hold* tin idea of resistance of consequence to General Scott's inarch upon the capital, as preposterous. Santa Anna la already nearly reduced to the position the j federalists wish him in, being left but a guerilla party j to operate with; and whether ho ever sought peace or not, ho cannot now bo expected to make an atteippt ] at brlngiug It about, while a hope remains to him of being able to recover the ground he lias lost. Whether those who look to American rule for amelioration of their condition will endeavor to bring about peace, remains to bo seen. When Mr. Black left, Hairs were in such a state of confusion, that no idea could be formed of what might take place within twenty-four hours, but the Government had determined upon removing to I.ago*, distant about one hundred leugucs from the capital, whenever our arinv reached its \icinitv. There is but little means of resistance at the capital. When Mr Black left there was not over half a dozen pieces of artillery there; anil knowing of no itource from whence sutttcient ordnance can he obtained, he is of opinion that a defence will not he attempted. We regret to learn that Maj's tinmen and Borland and Captain (. lay. and the other prisoners taken at Encarnation. notwithstanding Santa Anna's eugngement to release them when prisoners were exchanged after the battle of Buena Vista, are closely routined, and their wants neglected. Eton I.a Vega, who was treated with so mucli respect and consideration in this city, turned a deaf ear to their complaints when military commandant of the city of Mexico. THE INDIANA VOM'NTEERS AT BEEN A VISTA. Camp Buena Vista, April 19th. 1847. It is an error that the Indiana Brigade, as a brigade, was in the tight. The 1st ltegiinent was on the Bio Grande, the 2d on the oxtreino left of the linn of battle, and the 3d on the extreme right?further separuted than any two regiments upon the Held. 1 suppose your Informant wa^ led into error becuuso Brig. Gen. Lane was with the id Regiment. It is an error that my regiment ever hesitated tor a single instant, and it lias the signal merit of being one, if not the only one in the action, that did not retreat Our portition was in the road by which alone the artillery of the enemy could be brought forward, anil ouly exposed to artillery lire until the 2d Indiana, Kentucky. Illinois, and Mississippi troops ban been successively driven back by the overpowering force of the enemy.? The enemy having boon twice repulsed in our front, and having completely turned our left flank and taken position next the mountain, we wero ordered there, and formed a junction witii Col. Davis' regiment and the 2d ludtanians, which had been rallied; tills force advanced upon the infantry aud lancers and kept up a brisk tire until It was ordered to cease by Gen. Taylor. It was tl.Til (In, tune. -1 I..,1 I ? for the repulse of which the credit is given to tho Mlssissippiaus This charge was made in column upon tile extreme right of my regiment; the 3d Indlanlans and Mississippians being on our left. They were permitted to approach within twenty-live steps of tho lino before I gave tho command to tire; they were repulsed, and tied under cover of their buttery, and their infantry dispersed among tho mountains. We now moved to the vicinity of O'Brien's battery, and when wo arrived there the Kuutucky and Illinois troops, overpowered by numbers, were retreating, und the enemy pressing hotlj upon them and the battery, which was in imminent danger of being captured. We opened a fire upon them und lliey retreated in the greatest disorder. Tills last blow terminated the battle, and ilisteud of leaving tin battle-field, us stated, wo (the fid indianinns) bivouackoi in the must advanced position held by our troops in tin morning, and the enemy drew off. As troops never fought detter than the fid Indiauians as their steadines ami coolucss is proverbial? us yoi will sco by the official report?I am astonished that sucl calumnies should be fabricated againt it. We weri brought into the action when the day seemed extromelj critical, und were victorious in every engagement, and in my opinion, are entitled to the credit of having twin saved the fortunes of the duy. I have not mentionoc the retreut or change of position of other regiments in vldiouely, but as u proof that (he fortunes of the day in an eminent degree rested upon and was sustained by my regiment, bo much for the fid Itegiiiicnt iudiadia Volunteers. The 3d Indinna Itegiment opened tho " hull" on the '.'fid und I undertake to say fliey deserve credit for maintaining their first position as long as they did?they were on tho extreme left, next the mountain. They stood firm and steady as veterans, and exchanged 31 rounds willi a vastly superior force in their front--with their entire line, from left to right, raked by a deadly fire of grape aud caunistrr from cue 34 pounder und two lH's?with tlieir right Hank threatened, and their rear exposed from a force that was contending with the Ritlvuieu upon the mountain?they did not retreat until they were ordered to do so by their commander- (as in evidence before a couit ofiu<iuiry now sitting). The only possible charge which eau be made ill truth nfriiinwt lh,e)il Inrtlanta n, (a that they diii not rally as soon as (hey should, but the fault is not with them, but with thu commander, who designated no force or point for them to rally upon.
