Monterey, (Mexico,) Sept. 24, '46.
Messers. Eoieors: 1 have but a few
leisure moments to give you an account
of our great battle-at Monterey. On the
morning of the 2 1st, General Taylor
formed his line for battle, and marched up
to the outskirts and fortifications of the
town keeping one bomb and his artillery
battery going all the lime. The Mexi
cans continued to fire on us all day, but
Gen. Worth on one side of the town
with Col. Jack Ha s, and Capt. Walker
and the Texan Rangers, and Gen. Tay
lor and the volunteers on the other, we
made our way into their streets over their
breast works, with a heavy loss on both
sides. When we made the first charge,
we lost our gallant Col. Watson. The
BJtimoriaus fought bravely, and done
credit to their city. We lo.u a number of
men, but I cannot give you their names
The lennessee and Missippi volun
teers were cut up horribly. Kenluek
did not stand the fire wi;il, and Ohio got
in a hot place, but soon backed out of it.
Capt. Barber and Col. McCnllough, of
Mississippi, also fell mortally wounded,
with a number of other ollicers whose
names I cannot remember.
Tlie battle lasted three days aud two
nights, and we had a hot time of it I as-
. Wo bury our dead to-day, and you
may judga of cry feeling at the dreadful
sight better thau I can describe thcrn. -The
whole field ia like a slaughter-house
and bodies are being buried in every di
rection. In short, I have had enough of
the battle field, although determined to
stand opto the rack throughout the cam
paign. Some persons may aud do like
it, but between you and myself, I would
much rather be in Baltimore. . ,

Col. Y atson was killed in ihc impru

He was at the head of the Baltallion and
had ordered us to go into tlie charge with
three cheers. He received a ball in the
breast while in the act of cheering and
fell instantly. I tried to get to him, but
was borne on in the rush. The charge
was ineflcctual. At this moment General
Taylor rode np in tgre.ut anger and or

under ihc most tremendous fire. It was

Some of the staff say that our loss is 700

must be at least 1000.
The Texan Rangers are the most des
perate set of men in battle that I have
ever heard of. They charged up to the
breast-works dismounted, and rushed
over on foot, with sword in hand. They
were each armed with barrelled rifles, and

Mataxoras, Oct. 2, 146.
M"cssrs. Editors: Last night we had
an alarm, and Matamoras was in a "hub
bub," with all the American population
under arms. It was currently reported
that Monterey had been re-taken, and the
American army put to the sword, and that
the Mexican troops known lo be at San
Fernando were to make an attempt to
take Matamoras. It was quite an exci
ting time throughout the night, and still
this morning the absence of news from
above tends to keep up the excitement,
rendered a little painful by another report,
that the wounded at Monterey, on their
way to Camargo, have been massacred.
I do not believe it, although I place no
confidence whatever in Mexican fidelity.
The American Flag, published at Ma
tamoras, gives the following additional
particulars of the capture of Monterey.
The steamer Mercer, arrived last eve
ning from Camargo, and brought down as
passenger Maj. Coffee, who gives us fur
ther intelligence of ihe taking of Monte
rey. Maj. C. reports the loss on the part of
the Mexicans to have been much greater
than was first stated. It has been ascer
tained that 1500 would not cover their
loss in killed and wounded. On the part
of the Americans, GOO was the full extent
of the loss.
The valor displayed by our whole ar
my is unparalleled in history. Individual
acts of heroism were performed which
will render the actors immortal.
(Jen. Worth has covered himself with
glory. His tactics, as displayed in the
capture of 3 of the most important forts,
will vie in brilliancy of execution with
those of a Wellington or a Ney.
When the flag of truce was received,
and the capitulation agreed to, the whole
army was disappointed. It was only
then that they were beginning to "leli"
upon the Mexicans. Previous to this,
they had been fighting them protected by
their breastworks, and at every disadvan
tage. Now they had got amongst them
and were giving them a dose which was
