The army,' now numbering- some tHXH) men,
advanced towarda Puebla, and on the evening
of the 8th of October arrived at the Hacienda
Sim Antonio Tsrpsrie, distant 35 miles . Pram
that flity. Information hid been daily received
that Gen Snt9 Anna waa stationed it the past
of Pinal (Vents de Pinal) with tmr thousand
men and several piece nf artillery to oppose our
progress. This pis wai twelve mile to ad
vance of the) hacienda. "Accordingly, on Itie
morning of the 9th, tbe whole army prepared to
ma rait and attack the pss. At this moment
information wa received that Gen Santa Anna
was in the town of lluimantla, distant 10 in lie
trom tire hacienda, 7 mile from the mVm road
and 8 from the pare, or 4 mile neater tf:e pass
than nur encsmpnH-nt.
Gen Iine leaving a considerable portion of
hi force at the hacienda with the big gage wa
gone and part of the artillery, determined to ad
vancevpon Hnnmantie, taking with him the In
diana and Ohio Regiment and Col Wyokoop',
Msj Laity' and Capt Simmon' battalion, and
sending in advance the mounted men, about
200, under command of Captain Walker, with
instruction to act circumstance might re
quire. Cpt Walker advanced rapidly toward
the town, and when within abort diatanct as
certained that the enemy were there in con id
ersble force with several piece of artillery, and
fearing lest any delay, in waiting for tbe ad
vaneeofthe infantry,' might ensile the enemy
tj eecapc with their cannon, gallantly ordered
a charge.with hi hindlul nt men, and after a
brisk fight, succeeded in rapturing lour piece
of artillery and. driving off the enemy.-
When the order wa given to charge, there
. j rote a w ild yell, and such a charge, the dishing
; of the sabres, the thundering ol the horses rret
j over the paved streets, were enough to atrike
terror into the heart of the enemy. Two of
their esnnoti were pointed up the street, ano
ther pointer down a cross street, and the fuse
wa ixirotng in it. The terrified artillerymen
moved merely to the side of th houses, at
whom our men made their thrust atd right and
left Cut,, killing many in th't manner; tbe ca
valry rushed over their cannon, the laaeera,
(bow many eve did not know, but opposed there
were three or four hundred,) fled our men eo
para ting into small part pursued tbem beyond
the town, on the outskirts of which good ma
ny were killed. Capt Walker went beyond the
town for tbe purpose of overtaking the artillery
which had left the place. Capt Iwi went in
another direction for the rime purpose ; Capt
Bt'sancnn wa ordered to follow the road to see
if. the artillery could - be overt ken." In the
meantime, the Vrort of bur men having gone in
pursuit, Cpt' Iyall with a few men astird by

Capt Walker, they saw this piece, fur at t(te ve

wheeled, and dashing awiftly putt the rear of
those who had cut him of! from the Plain, again
entered it ' Here the men dismounted and oc-
cupied the Convent yard, together with a large
houee in the corner of the square.' Cpt Lewi
nd Lieutenant Waters, with some ten or
twelve men. charged twice rpon tbe enemy,
who gsve way.and wore pursuing Mirm, kn
thpy discovered they were being surrounded by
vast number of lancers. They gallantly for
ced their way to the Plain; Capt Besancoo
barely returned in time to save himeotf. Pri
vate Ilugenen r.d Corporal Merrillen.of com
pany C, nflns, being entirely surrounded, drove
right into their midst, and fell covered with
wound. Capt Wslker gave disorder prompt
ly to form the men to receive the enemy, who
now mad their appearance on our right, in
front, and on nor left. They had al run tip
the four-pounder to open on o.
Lieutenant Claiborne, assisted by Corporal
Tilghman, unlimberrd the six pounder and poin
ted it at the column on our left. Having no
port fire, he prepared to fire it with a horse
pistol ; the enemy came nearer, until at a boor
sixty yards ofT, when they halted. At thi mo
ment (bo Lieutenant fired the pitnt, bnt the
fuee of the cannon would not catch, end bring
left alone in the plaza, he retired to the corner
house, and pouted some rifletwn to keep tint
piece from recapture. At thi juncture Cspt
Walker, while examining the approach of the
enemy, and looking at the four-pounder on cxir
right, was shot trom behind, from a bouse that
displayed white (lag. lie sunk down irnme
distely and w borne into tbe yard, the men
bwrsting ivt'o tear as the cry spread among
tbem, Capt Walker' billed. Capt W.lker
directed that we should never surrender,' and
died in about thirty minute.
The state of the case, a avbteqoently ascer
tained, appeared to be this. Gen Santa Anna
having remained dnring the night of the 8th in
the town of Hoamantla, some four or five miles
nearer the pas than the encampment of Gen
Lane, had confidently left early ia tbe morning
with 4Q00 men for the pass, leaving behind 1000
ine and artillerists to follow with the cannon.
The unexpected advance of Walker wa soon
perceived by the advanced force of Gen Santa
Anna, who, being cavalry, and in large number
immediately started bank to the town at a rapid
pce to save or recover their artillery, without
which they could of course make no stand at
thepaasof Pinal. . Being well mounted, they
were enabled to reach the town sooner than tho
infantry under Gen Lane, who, however, made
moat strenuous exertion to reach it with or be
fore them. Thi movement of the enemy waa
unknown to Cspt Wtlker, and supposing after
the cipturo of the guna and tho route of the 700
mea with them, tho affair lo be over, suffered
hi men to dwpereo Ihrmigh the town lo rut off
tho retreat of the enemy and capture ny more
guna and ammunition that might bo discovered.
Capt Walker, with anme fifty or sixty men, re
maiited in the plaza or centre square of the
town.- "''"'' ; ' ' -
At Ihis time, to the entire surprise of all, a
sudden rush was made into the plaza.' by the
enemy, who ninde a fierce attack with laitcr
nd escopct upon the small band. Capt. Wsl
er soon rallied hi few men and took a position
in front nr a church, and determined to fi tit
until the last,. He had, msinlsined tin portion

Surgeon Reynolds, who, on thia occasion had
volunteered to arcoiiipnny tho small bar.d of
cvalry, charged side by rde with Capt Wsl

parts rr tho engagement, until l!io,fier fll,
mortally wounded ;iid after carrying barb his
body and receiving his dying breath, again re
turned lo the front, and thry remained until the
arrival of reinforcements. Surgeon Reynold,
in the action, captured a Mexicin Lieutenant
of artillery, and taking I rum hire (iia sword, de
livered him over a risotier to the American
forces; and after the termination of the battle
he resumed the dulic of hie profession, and
properly performed hie amputations and other
operations on the field nf battle. Beside the
commander of regiment and battalion, who
acquitted thenreelve nobly, we have heard
mentioned with great commendation Lieut.
Anderson, Georgia vn'unteere, who succeeded
in capturing Col La Vega and Major Iiurbide;
also, Ijeut B P McDonald, 3d artillery, who
went forward into the tow n, with an order from
the General, previooa to the entry of the rein
forcemeats. Mr Bradley, of the quartermaster'
department accompanied him. They were sur
rounded by lancers, but finally eecaped.
We will here mention one incident, which
show how insensible the gallant Walker waa
t danger, however impending. When in the
course of the second engagement between Wal
ker' band and :hc overwhelming body of lan
cers. Surgeon Reynolds, who had become sep
arated from him by the breadth of the Plaza, or
open square of 100 yards, seizing Ihe most fa
vorable moment, dashed through ihe space oc-
copied by the enemy, and jumping from hia
horse, with an earopet, which he htd taken
from a Mexican, look bis place again by the
aide ol Walker, the latter turned to him and
said, That' right, doctor, wo can whip them
Santa Anna had been waiting for the A
merican train for somo tiruo at liuamantla, and
had obtained accurato information of its strength,
through hi spies. It waa hi iutention to let
it proceed until it reached tho narrow and diffi
cult pass of Pinal, and then to attack it ia tho
rear. I In was, however, fortunately for us, oot
gener led by Iane. When the Americar. left
the miin road and look that leading la Ho,
mantle, Santa Anna was in a steeple a? distant
village church, surrounded by hit eteft using
his spy-gtss in (canning Ihe country. Thosno.
nient Ihe bead of our co'itmn debouched from
the main road, he realized Ihe design of Gen.
Ijine to capture hie- art.llery, and immediately
sent two or three of his aid, with atrong force,
to bring it off if not already lost, or recapture it,
if taken, 1 n the execution of ihi order, Major
Iturbide, who wa afterward made a prisoner,
came dabbing towards, the town in furious
ga'lnp. At the Mine lime, Lieut. McDonald,
of the artillery, waa spurring ahead ol our
Iron ns toward the same point. Both officer
rude for ro ne distance withi ibail of each other,
