Bin: 1 have thn honor to submit a detailed re
•> port of (ha oporati ins id thn force* undei iu>
. command which reunited in the engagement ol
Buena Vista, the repatso nf the Meriran army
and the reoccupation of thi* position.
The information which reached me of the ad
vance and concentration of a heavy Merican lor.c
in toy front, had asmtoed «uch a probable
to induce a special examination far bevutid the
reach of our pickets to ascertain itr correctness.
A smalhparty of Texan ppies, under Mayor Mc-
Culloch, despatched to ihtoHacienda] of Eticarna
cion. 30 miles from this, on the mute to San I.uik
Potosi, had reported a cavalry foicv of. unkuown
strength at that place. On the 20th of February
’ a.strong reconnoissanco unJer I.ieut. CoJ. May
was despatched to the Hacienda of Jlecliuuda,
while Major McCulloch made another examina
tion of Eucainarinn. The results of those expo
ditioos left no doubt -that the enemy teas in large
force at Encamacion under the orders of General
Santa.Anna,and that he meditated a forward move
ment and attack upon out position.
As the Camp at Agua Nacra 'could be turned
on cither flank, and as the ctu-my’* force was great
ly superior to our owh. particularly in the arm a<
cavalry, I dclerroined after much consideration, a.
lake up position about eleven miles in rear; and
there await the attack- The army broke up.its
camp end marched at noon on the 2lst, encamp

men, a mixed array oChrtiUery and dragoons.
The Amertcan forces were composed of the
troops under Gen-Kearney, and Marines and Sai
lors under Corn, Stockton, 600 in all. On am- \
ving at San Gabriel, first operation of conse- j
g'jence was to attack A Mexican battery, which I
w« gallantly stormed in the face of a heavy fire. ;
Tbi* terminated the first day's operations.
On the next day a general battle was fought on
the plains of Mesa, near the town. The Mexican
Drigoont charged upon the aailora in this contest,
but the tars stood their groand, and kept the ene I
my a* bay with boarding pikes, while the mount
ed Riflemen eooly picked them eff by scores.
The result was the total defeat and rout of
tbe Mexicans. They bad ninety killed and a large
number wobnded. Our loas was sixteen killed
and wounded—«U told. The only officer injured
ih-the battle was Lieut\ Rowan, who wav but
►ligliily wounded.
