Capture of Victoria---Lieut. Col. May Attack
ed--Loss of his Rearguard-50,000 Mex
icans in the Field—Gen. Shields—Gen.
After a large portion of our edition of
last week was worked ofl, we received
news that Gen. Taylor had entered Vic
toria on the 9th with Gen. Quitman, who
had driven the. Mexican force 30 or 40
miles before him.. The Mexican army
is supposed not be far off. It is suppo
sed that an attack upon Generals Worth
and Wool is not meditated by the Mex
icans, their object being to retreat before
any advance and cut off the supplies of
Col. Kenney brought a rumor to Tam
pico, that 15000 Mexicans were to attack
Saltine on the 27th ultimo, and that
Santa Anna had placed himself between
Generals Worth and Taylor, with 35,-
600 men, and that a general action was
immediately expected. Capt. May was
attacked by a large body of the enemy
and his rear guard cut off by rolling
stones into the pass, while examining the
pass between Monte Morales and Labra
does; his loss has not been ascertained.
Col. Kenny states that the Mexican
force at San Luis is 30,000 strong, and
their whole force in the field 50,000.
Generals Taylor and Patterson, with
6,000 men, were at Victoria, waiting or
ders from Gen. Scott. It is rumored
that Vera Cruz will be attacked as soon
as Gen. Scott assumes the command in
Capt. May's Expedition.
We find the following detailed account
of this hazardous undertaking, in the
New Orleans Delta.
Between 7 and 8 o'clock, P. M.,
Capt. May got in [at Victoria] with his
dragoons. He reports the loss of 11
men and their horses, and 7 pack mules.
As far as I can gather the particulars,
and they come from Capt. May, they
are these :—Between Monte Morales and
Linares Capt. May ascertained that there
was a pass in a gorge of the mountains,
and determined to ascertain the nature I
of it. His command consisted of two
companies of dragoons—some 70 or 80
men. • On approaching the foot of the
mountain every precaution was used to
guard against surprise. A Lieutenant,
with 12 men, acted as the rearguard and
guard of the pack mules of the command,
Who remained some few hundred yards
in the roar, and in this way they pro.
gressed slowly and carefully, until they
found out the pass, which was so nar
row Alva it was with much difficulty a
single horse could go through it. But
May was determined to traverse it, and
make what discoveries he could on the
ether side. Dismounting himself and
men, he led his horse and the way, and
after experiencing much difficulty in
getting from rock to rock, the command
ultimately succeeded in getting through.
On the right hand side of this pass there
is a perpendicular of some 600 feet or
so high, as some of the men say, "that
u man up there looked like a little boy."
On the left hand, after 10 or 12 feet
of perpendicular, there was a gradual
slope to the top on which an enemy
could run down, fire a piece and then
return. It is represented as being the
most dangerous pass to a daring enemy
that is known, and one where a few de
termined men could stop the advance of
thousands. After going as far on the
other side as was thought necessary
they turned to come back, and the main
body retraced their steps with the same
caution observed in effecting the pas
sage. But the rearguard were not so
lucky in getting through this time, for
it appears after the Lieutenant and Ser
geant got through, a large body of men,
who stationed themselves on the perpen
showered down stones from
the top so fast and so heavy, that their
advance was completely cut off; and
that they were either killed, or taken
prisoners, or made their escape to the
other side. It seems that Capt. May
was not taken by surprise, for he was
continually urging vigilance, and left his
best bugler in the rear to sound the
alarm in case of accident, as though he
anticipated an attack.
A rumbling noise in the pass caused
them to halt for the rearguard, but they
not coming up when he thought it was
time for them to reach him, he wheeled
about and went into the direction of the
pass again at full speed. He shortly
met the Lieutenant and Sergeant, and
immediately demanded of the former—
" Where's your men 1" The answer of
the Lieutenant was, "close at hand," at
the same time turning his head around
as if with the expectation of seeing them
just behind him: But there were none
there save the Sergeant, and the truth
immediately flashed upon the command
er that something was wrong with them.
As quick as thought, and the nature of
the path would permit, they dashed off
for the pass, and when they reached it
found that a large number of stones had
been thrown down,and discovered traces
of blood along the defile. They followed
up as fast as possible, but it was of no
avail ; they could make no further dis-
coveries, nor learn anything of the fate
of their companions, lid they sorrow
fully retraced their steps, and arrived
here as above noticed.
I have given the above truly, ks it was
related to me, without omission or addi
tion, and it is the received and acknowl
edged account of the unfortunkte affair.
It may seem strange, and wanting in de
tail ; but as it involves several delicate
points, I do not feel warranted in surmi
sing what may have made out a good
story, and therefore prefer putting it
down in its apparently unfinished recital,
rather than draw on the imagination for
what is behind. May has put the Lieu
tenant under arrest and many blame him
for being in advance of his guard when
his post was in the rear of it. As to
his travelling on without discovering
that his command was absent, will be
readily credited by any one who is fa
miliar with travel in a chapparel cowl
, try, or in any narrow pass where two
abreast cannot proceed.
In coming through the pass, the men
were necessarily 15 or 20 feet apart—
their safety demanded this—and with
the noise on the stones, made by his
own horse's feet and those of the Ser
geant's horse, and this in cooling down
a declivity, it is not strange, at least to
me, that he did not miss them; and as
to his looking back to see them, that
may have been out of the question, as it
; is natural to suppose he needed the con
stant use of his eyes to guide his horse
I over the rugged path. Military discip
' line, no doubt, demanded his arrest, but
censure should be reserved until the
whole statement of the mishap is made
known by some one who witnessed it.—
Up to this time I do not believe that
Gen. Taylor is possessed of more detail
than is here set down. _ _
It is not thought that any regular sol
diers of the Mexican army had a hand
in this business. Rancheros and ban
ditti, actuated more by plunder than
any thing else, are believed to have cut
them ofl, thinking probably that there
was more of value than what they ob
tained. In the hands of such men the
fate of the prisoners is doubtful, though
they would be perfectly safe in falling
into the hands of an officer of the army.
The Movements of Oar Army.
In the course of a few days or a few.
weeks, says the Phila. Saturday Gleaner,
we may look for stirring intelligence
from the Army. A movement of no lit
tle importance was on foot at the last
dates. General Scott had not arrived at
Tampico on the 12th, but he was hourly
expected, and we have reason to believe
that the operations of our troops were
in a great measure suspended with the
object of awaiting his arrival. It is
also probable that Gem Scott would, be
fore finally determining upon any plan,
hold a long and confidential interview
with Gen. Taylor, and obtain from that
gallant officer, all the information iu his
possession having an immediate bearing
upon the campaign. The two Generals
had not met at our last accounts. A
friend who has received a letter dated
Tampico, Jan. 12, states that Scott was I
at Brazos, but had not communicated
with Gen. Taylor. The disposition of
the army was such as would probably
favor the operations of the " Hero of
Chippewa." The troops were in posi
to attack San Luis de Potosi, or to
march to any other point. It remains
to be seen, whether on the arrival of
General Scott, an attempt will be made
to capture Vera Cruz and the Castle—
an expedition be planned to march to
Tuzpau, and then to the city of Mexico
—or an effort to be at once made to give
battle to Santa Anna at San Luis de Po
tom. General Scott is doubtless author
ized to pursue the plan he shall deem
most advisable under the circumstances,
and after he shall have consulted with
Gen. Taylor and the other leading offi
cers, who have so long beet► in the field
in Mexico. Indeed, we have reason to
believe that an expedition recently left
Tampico for Laguna de la Puerta, 9 1-2
miles on the Altimira road, with instruc
tions to remain there and await further
orders. Meanwhile, despatches were
received from Gen. Taylor, and the
troops were ordered to march back again
which they did accordingly. We repeat,
immediately after Gen. Scott shall have
consulted Old Rough and Ready, some
bold movement will be determined upon,
some enterprise of no ordinary charac
ter, and calculated to exert a powerful
influence upon the war.
Pa. Volunteers—The Killers,
The following is an extract of a letter
to the North American, dated
SHIP RUSSELL GLOVER,
Off the Jllississippi, Jan. 17, 1847.
Our stay in New Orleans has been a
very disagreeable one, owing to the con
duct of sonic outlaws, "the Killers," in
Capt. Hill's company. By these acts,
our regiment became the terror of the
whole vicinity. They entered houses,
turned out the owners and their fami
lies, and attempted indignities upon the
females. On the evening of the 11th,
they entered the house of a Frenchman,
and broke into the chamber of his daugh
ter, when he fired and shot two of them.
Capt. Hill came up with a detachment
of fifty men, and took the rest to prison.
The evening before we left New Orleans
they entered his tent and attempted to
murder him. The next day he threw
uph is commission and left for Washing
ton. This state of things must now
cease. We are about entering the ene
my's country, and martial law will be
strictly enforced. Those who mutinate
' will bo instantly shot.
The Pleasures of Soldiering.
The Nett/ Orleans papers state that
that city was.visited on the night of the
23d ult. with a thunder storm of great
violence. The rain descended in tor
rents all that night and part of the next
day, deluging the country all around the
city. The second Regiment of Missis
sippi volunteers and the second Regi•
ment of Pennsylvania volunteers were
encamped on the Battle Ground a few
miles below the city, and, according to
the New Orleans Tropic, "up to their
knees in mud and water"—and this, too,
remarks that journal, when the U. S.
Barracks were unoccupied. The Cam
eron Guards, Stockton Artillerists and
Philadelphia Rangers had nearly all
their blankets swept away by the waters.
The Topic ttdds:—
" About two hundred of the Pennsyl
vanians have left the camp and have
come up to the city, Fifteen or more
left last eVetiing in one of the steamers
for "home, sweet home s " and we are in
formed that many more Will start by the
In what we have said we have not de
signed reflecting upon any officer of the
Government in this city. It is the Gov
ernment that we aim at. Its agents, at
this point (the base of all the army op
erations) should have been supplied
with the requisite means to furnish quar
ters, clothing, provisions, and every
thing necessary for the health and com
fort of the noble spirits who patriotically
embarked in their country's service."
Much sickness prevailed among the
Mississippians ; scarcely a day passed
without a death in their ranks; and it
was rumored that six or soon had died
on the night of the 23d ult. The au
thorities of New Orleans and the humane
physicians of that city were unremitting
in their attentions to the sick.
GEN. TAYLOR AND THE yOLUNTEHRS.-
A correspondent from Victoria, thus de
scribes a scene which occurred shortly
after Gen. Taylor's arrival at that place :
" Gen. Taylor visited the Illinois vol
unteers yesterday, and the way the boys
crow.leil around him threatened lame
diate suffocation. By way of salutation,
I verily believe the old General pulled
at his cap five thousand times, and 1 was
looking every minute to see him pull the
front piece off. The General was mount
,ed on a large and gentle mule, whilst
his orderly rode a splendid dragoon
horse, and himself dressed in a clean
and handsome uniform whilst the Gen
eral had on that same old black frock
coat, and a big Mexican straw hat. Mr.
Fannin, the orderly, got about six salutes
to Taylor's one, the " suckers" taking
him for the General, and wondering why
they called him old Taylor. When at
/last they found out that the old ranchero
was the sure-enough General, they in
ferred, from his plain appearance, that
it would be nothing amiss to offer him
a hand to shake, and they went at it with
' such good will, that, by the time the two
regiments finished squeezing it, there
could have been little feeling left in it.As
he rode oil; there were many who won
dered whether that was the animal on
which he charged the Mexicans.
Oz Monroe Edwards, the notorious
swindler, died in the Prison Hospital at
Sing Sing, on Friday morning last, of
consumption. His health has been fail
ing for some time past, but he had not
been in the Hospital, we believe, more
than three weeks.
The President afforded "aid and
comfort to the enemy" by giving them a
General ; and now his friends are in
creasing that " comfort" by denouncing
the General of the .dmerican forces!—
As the President gave Santa Anna his
freedom, we should not be surprised to
find him trying to balance the account
by imprisoning Gen. Taylor.
