Safe 4rrival of the Wrecked Volunteers
at Tampico—Health of Tampico—Sick

Fortifying the Passes of the Road to
the City of Mexico.
WASHINGTON, March 2, 8 P. M.
New Orleans papers to the 23d have
been received by the Southern mail this
evening. They contain advices from
Tampico to the 13th, Galveston to the
18th, Brazos to the 16th, and Vera Cruz
papers of the 2d ult.
The Louisiana Volunteers wrecked
on board the Ondiaka are all safe, with
the exception of six, whom Col. De Rus
sy was constrained to leave behind.
No action had occurred between the
volunteers and the Mexicans, and they
reached Tampico in safety on the 9th,
in general good health, but much exhaus
ted by the forced march. Seven were
abandoned a feW miles from the first en
catnpment, being unable to march, and
it was found inipossible to carry them
through the sand on litters. One sub
sequently. overtook the main body, and
the remainder probably fell into th 6
hands of the enemy.
General SCOTT was hourly expected
at Tampico.
The sickness among the troops at
Tampico had been greatly exaggerated;
the general health was excellent. There
were about seven thousand men there
eager for action, but kept ignorant of
their immediate destination. It Was
presumed that Vera Cruz would be the
next point of attack, and the general
opinion was that they would leave Tam
pico before the close of February.
The St. Catharine was still off Tam.:
pico, with a portion of the New York
regiment on board.
Many of the officers had gone ashore,
but the men were not allowed to land.
Nothing had been heard from the Miss
sissippi troops, which were still on board
the ship Statesman, but at the last ac
counts they were suffering deplorably
from sickness.
High honors had been paid at head
quarters to the late Lieutenant David
Gibson, of the Second Artillery. He
was a native of Virginia, and a graduate
of the military academy at West Point.
Capt. Brown, of the steamboat Pion
eer, sent by General Patterson to the
succor of the volunteers wrecked in the
Ondiaka, returned to Tampico on the
7th. He reported that on reaching the
wreck of the Ondiaka and finding it de
serted, he had burned her.
The adventure of the Louisiana vol
unteers is particularly described in the
Picayune. The day they took refuge
on the beach opposite the wreck to es
cape a watery grave, they received visits
from several Mexicans in the character
of peasants and fishermen. From their
conduct and promises the volunteers
were led to expect assistance on their
way in transporting their stores,
These fellows were subsequently dis
covered td be spies, and on the same af
ternoon made their appearance with a
flag of truce front Gen. Cos, and de
manded an immediate and unconditional
surrender. Alarming representations
were made of swarms of armed Mexi
cans, sufficient to Out off all retreat.—
Gen. Cos declared his force to be eigh
teen hundred, when, in reality, he had
but nine hundred and eighty, all told,
the most of whom were raw recruits,
who had entered into the scheme in the
hope of gain and plunder.
Col, De Russey replied to this de
mand, but was not allowed admission
inside of Gen. Cos' lines. He was giv
en until 9 o'clock the next morning,
when the Americans were told they
must surrender or tight. That night
the camp-fires were lighted, but the
Americans marched atvay, leaving their
knapsacks and burthensome materials,
(which would impede their march,) ex
cept sufficient provisions to afford them
In twenty-four hours they had march ,
ed thirty-five miles, and riot an armed
Mexican was seen all the way to Tam
General Cos thought he had stationed
a sufficient force upon the road to cut
off retreat, and deprive the Americans
of all hope of succor, but Yankee perse
verance foiled him.
There was but about ninety service
able guns in the possession of the vol
unteers, the others having been lost in
getting ashore from the wreck. This
was one reason that Col. De Russv did
not wait to meet the expected attack.
Gen. Patterson was making extensive
preparations to rescue the volunteers
when they arrived.
Gen. Scott probably left the Brazos on
the 16th, on board the Massachusetts,
which was said to be waiting for him.—
Four companies of artillery, under Cap
tains Smith and Swartwout, and Lieu
tenants Shakleford and Vintor, acting
as his body guard.
The camp at Palo Alto has been dis
continued, and Gen. Worth and his staff
were at the mouth of the river, waiting
to embark.
All the troops were in motion, and
tars fourth and eighth infantry were on
board, as well as the first regiment of
riflemen. The second dragoons, Tay.
lor's light artillery, 'Col. Duncan's bat
tery, and some detichnients of recruits
were still ashore:
The roads between Camargo and Mon•
terey were almost impassable, on ac.
count of recent robberies.
The rancheros were gathering in all
quarters. At Matamoras thby were
petting an attack, The Plaza had been
fortified, and the city placed in a state
of defence.
The capture of Captains Borland,
Gaines and Clay, was confirmed:
Gen. Valencia had been relieVed from
the command of Vera Cruz, and his
place supplied by Gen. Vayguez. The
Mexicans were convinced that Vera
Cruz was to be the next point of attack,
and were busily engaged in fortifying
the passes of the road to the city of
The Merchants of Jalapa had been
called upon for a loan of four thousand
Nothing has been heard at San Luis
of Santa Anna's march.
At Tula and Jalapa they were on the
alert in expectation of the advance of
Gen. Scott.

.711 or's Particulars of the Capture of the
Kentucky Volunteers, by General Minor
Rumored movement of Santa ~Inna.
WASHINGTON, March 3, 1947.
A slip from the office of the 'New Or•
leans Picayune, dated on Wednesday
last, at 12 o'clock, contains tidvices from
Tampico to the 13th ult. The Tampico
Sentinel of that date contains an extract
from a paper of the city of Mexico of
the 2d ult., giving more full details of
the captme of the seventy Americans
by On. Minbn.
A letter in the Mexicans papers, dated
San Luis, Jan 27th, announces the arri
val of the prisoners, and rebukes the re
joicings which had been going on. The
affair is called a bloodless victory. Gen.
Minon's force was 2000 strong. The
stiine letter declares that the Americans
were surprised early in the morning at
a watering place.
The Sentinel states that many rumors
are diem with regard to the movements
of the Mexicans; raid it was supposed
with some truth. Santa Anna had mo
ved towards Monterey, and it is possi
ble that General Minon was in command
of the advanced guardi He is an excel
lent cavalry offider; and accompanied
Santa Anna en his return froin
The capture alluded to may rouse the
drooping spirits of the Mexicans. The
names of the seventy Americans are
published. Cassius M: Clay is among
them. There are in all, two Mdjorfl,
three Captains, one Lieutenant, three
Sergeants, and sixty-one privates.
One of the reports from the South is,
that the Mexican troops at Jalapa and
Tula, supposed to be under the immedi
ate command of Santa Anna, were pre
pared to meet Gen. Scott, and give him

Xnother Party of .dmericans Captured
by the Rancheros—Jl .Mexican Guide
killed by order of Gen. Minon as a Spy
—Mexican Troops leaving San Luis,
supposed to reinforce the garrison at
Vera Cruz.
WASHINGTON, March 4 , 6 o'clock.
, ,
By Southern mail of this evening
the Nov Orleans Picayune of the 25th
ultimo, has been received, containing
Brazos dates to the 18th.
The correspondents of that paper state
that the troops will leave there in three
days s.
The report made by General Minon,
states the number of Americans taken
prisoners by him to be 82 in all. besides
the Americans, there was a Mexican na
med Galeano, who had been with our
troops. Under the impression that he
was a guide or spy, he was immediately
put to the sword, although Gaines inter
ceded for his life.
Capt. Heady f of Kentucky, was also
captured tWo' days after Major Borland's
eonrimand, by a party of Ranchercis.—
The number of the party thus captured
is said to be 93, but this is uncertain.—
Their camp was surrounded in the night,
after being futigued by a march of forty
it is reported that Cassius M. Clay
projected an escape, by breaking through
the enemy's lines, but could not induce
the others to assent, the Mexicans great
ly outnumbering them
Hall Hoary, one of the Mier prison
ers, who had been acting as interpreter
with the Arkansas troops, had escaped
from the Mexican camp on Gaines'
It is stated in a letter dated San Luis,
27th ult., that a large Mexican force
marched from that place for Tanque de
la Vera, (the place where Gen: Minon
made his capture,) consisting of three
bodies of infantry, a brigade of cavalry
and foot artillery, with fourteen pieces
of heavy ordnance. Also, that in two
days another division would march,and
shortly afterwards the balance of the
force would leave San Luis.
From this it would appear that a blow
is to be struck in the direction of Sal
tillo. The address of Santa Anna, which
has been published, favors this idea.—
The opinions of our officers aro various
however, some favoring the' idea that
this display of troops on the other side
is but to . mask the real destination,
which they believe to be the city of Vera
