further news from Mexico, of which the following
is the substance
The steamship New Orleans arrived at New Or

Ist. or November.
Gen'l Patterson was to leave Vera Cruz on the
Ist insL The whole number of the train and escort
is 5000 strong and 250 wagons—Capt. Briscoe's
Rangers accompanying the train.
The following from the Genius of Liberty, of the
25th ult., contains tho most important items we can
gather from the Vera Cruz papers :
From four French gentlemen, who left the city
of Mexico on the 13th, and Puebla on the 16th of
October, we have received intelligence of a very im
portant nature 'concerning the state of affairs in
those quarters. Gen. Lane having arrived at Perote,
was there joined by Capt. Walker and his com
mand. Both advanced together on the Puebla road
till they roachod the town of Vreyes.
' At this place Capt. Walker, by order of the com
manding General, took up his line of march to
lluamantla, by way of the towns of San Francisco
and Guapastla. On his arrival at Huamantla a
sanguinary engagement took place in the streets,
between the force of Capt. Walker, consisting of
250 men, and that of the Mexicans, numbering
1,600, the result of which was the total expulsion
of the enemy from the town, and its occupation by
our gallant little army, which lost in the battle
only six men; but the gallant Walker, after per
forming prodigies of valor and feats of the most
daring character, fell, in the single combat, pierced
by the spear of an enraged father, who, goaded to
actual frenzy by the death of his son, whose fall,
beneath the arm of Capt. Walker, he had just wit
nessed, rushed forward, heedless of all danger ta
revenge his death, and attaching the Captain with
irresistible violeneo, plunged his spear into his
body, and slew Lim almost instantly.
The Mexicans lust two hundred men and three
pieces of artillery. The latter were thrown into a
gully adjoining the town by the victors, who after
the achievement of their object, the dispersion of
the enemy, for which they were dispatched to Hua
i manthi, evacuated the place and directed their course
towards Pinal, on the Puebla road, which they
reached without opposition, and there meeting with
Cam. Lane, the combined American forces contin
ued its march upon Puebla.
Into this city in a state of insurrection it entered
lin platoons, delivered at every step a constant and
well.directed fire of musketry, which ceased not
until the enemy had retreated, and order was re.
stored in every quarter.
Gen. Rea, of whom we heard so much lately,
returned with 400 guerrillas towards Athsco.
Gcn. Santa Anna was at the last accounts at
Tehuacan de las Granadas, having been descried

A large American train was to have left the city
of Mexico on the 31st ult., on its way down to
Vera Cruz. The escort for its protection is com
posed of four of five companies of infantry, a bat
tery, and some calvary, under the command of Col.

The capital is already teeming with hotels, ts.
verns, billiard rooms, cafes and theatres, all adver,
tided in the American style.
Some very severe shocks of earthquakes had
been experienced in the capital.
The health of the army is far from being good.
The climate of the valley of Mexico is not, as tt
appears, congenial to the constitutions of the South.

A SINGLIAR CAM—The Hannibal Gazette says
that young Houghton, one of the Marion volun
teers, was lost on the way from Santa Fe, in a
singular manner. We are told that when the
t hunter rides into a herd of buffalo, it is often the
ease that they become frightened and the whole
' mass starts off with furious speed fur the moun
tains, and there iv no way to get out, but to keep
. the same speed, and work your way gradually from
among them ; to halt would be ccta'm death, as the
mass would pass over and crush you, and hunters
are often carried seven and ten miles before they
can disentangle themselves from the headlong herd.
In this way Mr. Houghton disappeared. When
last seen he was flying over the plain endeavoring
to make his way out of a drove ofeeveral thousand,
and has not been heard of since.

STORMING OP CHAPULTEPEC.
We have already published an account by offi.
cers of the storming of Chapultepec and its capture
by our gallant troops, but the following description
by Lieutenant Charles Von Petered!, of the Ohio
Volunteers, who was in the battle, describing the
share that they had in the victory, presents a more
vivid and graphic picture of the occurenees than
was to be found in the general accounts which
have been published :—Ledger.
On the evening of the 11th, about 5 o'clock,
Gen. Pillow came to onr regiment, saying, "that
this post (Chapultepec,) must fall by the next snor
ing, as we could not advance without its possession,
and that he had the selecting of a storming party
from the different regiments—men who would be
daring enough to engage in this arducius under.
taking, and who would either seal their devotion
to their country with their heart's blood, or gain
immortal laurels." He called upon those who
were willing to join in this dangerous expedition to
step forward, and how many do you think were
ready? Only one man, and he was our leader,
who offered his whole regiment, man for man, nut
a single one would stand back, although the castle
lay before us on an almost perpendicular rock,
and had bade defiance during the whole dcy
to our artillery, showing to us seventeen open
mouthed cannon, and thousands of Mexicans
crouched on its bastions. Nevertheless, every one
of the boys wanted to be one of the party, and
with impatience they begged the General to go at
the work that same night. This was a great mo
ment. A tear stole down the check of General
Pillow, expressive of the feelings which took pos.
session of his breast. With few but heartfelt
words he thanked us for our readiness, and called
us as he has done since the 25th of August, his
"gallant 15th." The attack could, however, not
take place that evening, but we moved silently in
to the great corn magazine immediately at the foot
of the rook, to be ready for the work at the break
of day. The Mexicans discovered our intentions
and threw shells, however without doing any
harm. Pillow himself took quarters in our midst.
There lay the ranks of our brave, in the halls of
Molino del Rey, as this place is called, their weary
limits streached out on corn heaps, with their
idolized leader lying in their midst, firmly resolved
to sacrifice life and blood for the great undcrtak.
ing. In their hands lay the destinies of the next
day—aye, perhaps the destinies of the eventful,
There they slept undisturbed, seemingly uncon
seious of the danger to be encountered the next
day. War had no horrors for them. The con
scionsness of the whole nation's grateful ac
knowledgements softened their pillows. At the
break of day, our regiment formed in one of the
yards of the Molina. The battery of two mountain
howitzers opened their fire upon the castle, and all
the other batteries responded a deadly second to
this convert. Our riflemen endeavored repeatedly to
advance, but were repulsed by an insurmountabla
aqueduct. The howitzer battery in our front, as
the nearest, attracted not the attention of the ar
ttllery in the castle, and shell after shell was
thrown :nto the buildings which enelosed the yard.
Small shot, as thick as blackberries, flew through
the foliage over our heads, creating a noise like
the rattling of a shot mill. About 8 o'clock G'ert
' cral Pillow led the 91.11 regiment and a few com
¶ panies of the New York riflemen into the yard
! where we were posted. At this moment our
howitzers effected a breach in the inner ring wall,
and our Pillow gave the signal, with the words,
"Now, boys, is le tl moment, or never!" Three
thundering cheers, cheers which so often carried
dismay into the ranks of the enemy, and our
death-prepared masses moved onwards to the small
break, which, owing to the repeated pressure, soon
widened enough to allow us forming into line. As
soon as this was effected, the rifle regiment on the
right flank—the 9th regiment. in the centre, and
15th nn the left—our howitzers advanced in the
middle of the three main avenues, other avenues
crossing the swamp. The woods situated between
the Moffitt) and the hill consist mostly of heavy
timber scattered through a deep swamp, the main
avenue only leading on solid ground to the foot of
the hill. The main body moved onwards through
this avenue—a few took the other roads through
the swamp. The trees gave us considerable pro
tection, and crc long not a single Mexican was left
in the woods. They all retreated up hill behind
the breastworks, which were thrown up about half
way on the hill. Our tnen posted themselves soon
iu the rear of the first row of trees, where they
soon all collected, by which movement I came
nearly being stuck in the swamp, and we now
stormed the hill simultaneously from three sides.
The projecting rocks gave us considerable protec
lion, and we were now beyond the reach of their
two pieces in the flank, which sent their balls
harmlessly over our heads into the valley beneath.
I cannot conceive at this very miuute, how it was
pdissible for me to climb the hill as quick as I did ;
being wet through and through up to my arm pits—
in a direction, which would to day, by taking rest
three times, occupy ten minutes—encumbered as I
was, in one hand my eseopet, twenty.five catridges
in pocket, and my cloak strapped across my shout.
ders. But, once there, the thought of silencing a
cannon to our left; the only one which was doing
sad havoc to our men—this, and nothing else, oc
cupied my attention. In company with two of my
Cleveland boys, Joseph Hicks and Michael Denzer,
I advanced close enough to the battery to enable
us to use our firearms, I posted myself behind a
rock. I am sure I was not more than twelve steps
from the battery; but owing to the thickness of
the walls, the Mexicans could not discover us, as
we stopped down to load. Bat we were exposed to
their shots when we rose to fire. Unhappily my
esenpet, from the serape in the swamp, was wet
and would not go off. Luckily, (olt, you rascal, A.
5.,) a rifleman to our right, was shot through the
leg and was unable to get up. I got his :iflo and
used it several times with a steady eve, taking
good aim. But still I could not silence the piece.
Even with the assistance of thirty or forty men,
who collected around me, using the fire arms to
good purpose. At last, Hicks and myself discover,
cd a young officer pointing the cannon and assist
ing in loading it. He was now our game. Both
of us got ready with our pieces in the direction
where we last saw hint. His figure appeared ; and
at the same time "fire" was the word. The of.
ficer appeared no more, and the battery was si
The other boys, in the meantime, had aimed the
other aide of the hill and taken and silenced the
batteries there. And we advanced, after three or
four more shots from the enemy, so far that the
walls of the castle protected us completely, while
the Mexicans blazed away with their small arms
over our heads. Now the call was made for lad
ders, a few of which made their appearance, but
several times the carriers were either killed or
wonnded, and the ladders tumbled half way down
the hill again. On a sudden, the fire of our bat
tery ceased, and a Lieutenant from the New York
rifle regiment, with flag in hand, attempted to
mount the ladder, when suddenly the heads of
I about a dozen Mexican rascals popped over the
Iwalls, and with them the fire of their muskets—
and the gallant Lieutenant was wounded on the
Ihead—happily, however, not mortally. This was
the grand finale, and the retreating of the enemy
I commenced in good earnest. But, oh. God the
one ladder which was near where I stood, was not
enough, nor.were the six or eight more which were
soon procured. Despairing of our chance to be
the first on the walls of the castle, we commenced
I lifting each other up, by climbing on the shoulders
of each other, ana soon the walls were crowded
with Uncle Sam's boys. lily own little self was
actually thrown over the walls by the powerful
grip of a muscular rifleman, and after collecting
my legs together 3n the crowd, 7 bent my steps
first to the battery which my boys had silenced,
and there lay the same young officer near the piece,
Ihis head and breast penetrated with balls. Ile was
I rather a young man,and as his new and bright
I uniform betokened, probably lately advanced. As
Ia memento, I took with me in the great hurry, his
leap and one of his epauletts, which I found a few
steps from him on the ground. Onward over death,
we wended our way to the interior of the castle,
i which the Mexicans defended step by step, while in
the rear of a platform, where they once more posted
themselves. Hundreds of them took to their heels
I towards the city. But our men followed quickly
from building to building ; and in less that three
quarters of an hour from the time the attack eon.
menccd the banner of time free, waved in triumph
from the main turret of' the castle. The colors of
three regiments were nearly at the same time on
the spot. It is acknowledged by all, that the colors
of the 15th were No 1 ; but the cobra of the New
lurk regiment were first unfurled. Our flag
staff on this occasion was shot through in the
hands of the standard bearer, which explains the
matter. As soon as those three colors, waving
from the main building., were seen by the enemy,
he gave it up, and our people in the mean time ,
having taken possession of the whole fort, led on
the prisoners from every corner and recess of the
buildings. Amongst them, Gen. Bravo and 105
other officers and cadets. The castle being a
military school, the cadets were compelled nolens
volens to share in the fight. We had soon collected
about seven hundred prisoners—the rest of the
garrison were either killed or ran away towards
the city. Other regiments and divisions were
seen to follow on their heels, in a road which led
in a straight direction to the city. The scenes in
the castle and neighborhood I am unable to de
scribe. The victory was gained—the day was
ours, and a nation entirely indebted to us. And
this victory, in history so unique, was gained in
less than three quarters of an hour. Where is
there another one like it in the annals of nations ?
NWith tears in his eyes Gen. Scott expressed his
thanks to us. " !lad I millions of thanks to give
you, it would not be enough. 013! that I had a
thousand arms to press you to my bosom !" were
of his words; while lie embraced the officers and
shook hands with such of the others as were within
his reach. Besides the prisoners, we found a very
valuable library, and some equally costly instru
ments, and large stores of clothing. The lstter
were left for our braves to share, and in the greatest
harmony these were divided. The quick eye of
some hungry devil espied a good store of provisions.
Ere long, where a few minutes ago balls flew the
thickest, loaves of bread took their place, and
whiskey ran instead of blood. Still every thing
was harmony, good order and joy—expressions
of which, Gen. Cadwalader could hardly restrain ;
when he, in a few words, thanked us for our brave.
ry, and communicated reluctantly to us that Gen.
Pillow was wounded in the affair, by being shot
through the left foot—happily not dangerous.
Ile encouraged our men to join once more our
respective standards, as there was more work for us
ahead. Ills orders were instantly obeyed. We
experienced considerable disappointment, when we
found that our regiment was ordered to garrison
the forte, while the other regiments could share in
the subduing of the city itself. However, this could
not be altered. Tn obey is the first duty of the
soldier. With a heavy heart we saw our fellow
soldiers take up their lino of march towards the
city of Mexico, and continued cannonading in that
direction,soon gave evidence of our columns bravely
advancing and finding strong resistance. As the
firing became less, the excitement with us abated,
and we gave our undivided attention to the
If I were to give my opinion of the Mexican
troops, it is this: the artillery is very good—have
bplendid metal, and fire with good aim, because
they stand at a great distance, and behind fortifi ca
tions. The infantry is composed of the lowest
rabble, and their worth would be increased by their
large numbers, if they had better officers. These,
however, have actually to drive their men into bat
tle, for they do not fight from a pure moral princi
ple, but view it as a labor, to which, as to all others,
they must be driven by lorce. The officers, with
few exceptions, get soon tired, sod give it up in
disgust, and then the retreating commences without
