GEN. LANK ATTACKED BY
RESIGNATION OF SANTA ANNA
COMMUNICATIONS ENTIRELY CUT OFF.
BATTLE ov CH' A PULTEPEC CONFIRMED
Mexicans Evacuating the City.
Government to Follow the Army,
PETERSBURG, Oct. 11, 1847-8 A. M.
An Extra Picayune, dated the 4th
inst., contains intelligence from Vera
Cruz to the '26th ult., and from Tampico
to the 30th, received at New Orleans by
the arrival of the steamship Alabama.
There had been no later news direct
from Gen. Scott's army, but the Pica
yune learns through a source entitled to
great respect, that the American loss in
officers during the battles of the Bth and
13th ult. was twenty seven killed and
There is no confirmation of the death
of our Generals.
Letters received by commercial houses
at Tampico, from their correspondents
in the city of Mexico, confirm entirely
the Picayune's former reports of the
battles of Mill el Rey and Chapultepec
heights, on the Bth and 13th, in which
Gen. Scott carried these strong-holds at
the point of the bayonet.
A circular published by the Alcalde
of Guadeloupe, dated on the 14th, ad
dressed to the Commandants General of
the departments, declares that Santa
Anna had evacuated the Capital, but
that other means might he pursued to
harass the enemy.
It goes on to say that heroic resistance
had been made for the space of six days,
but the enemy at length established him
self in places and positions from which
his missiles could reach the peaceful
thousands of the city, and that their Su
preme Government seeing the State
affairs warranted a departure, changed
their abode, and the seat of government
would be very soon announced, though
the site had not yet been agreed upon.
The American Army charged on the
13th at daybreak with all their force up
on Chapultepee, which yielded after a
spirited defence of six hours. The
Americans immediately marched upon
another strong fortification, but the first
advance was checked by the Mexican
troops led by Santa Anna, disputing the
ground inch by inch ; but the Mexicans
were finally routed from the citadel after
nine hours' hard fighting.
The capital being in this situation,
Santa Anna anxious to avoid its bom
bardment, determined to evacuate the
Verbal reports received at Vera Cruz
are, that he retired to Guadeloupe with
ten thousand troops and twenty-five
No mention is made of the reported
bombardment on the 14th and 15th.
A letter received at Vera Cruz says :
After the Americans carried the Citadel,
they turned the guns of that fortification
on the city, When the Mexican army re
treated to Guadeloupe.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs ad
dressed the Governor of the Capital,
directing him to arrange affairs as well
as he could until he received official in
formation where . the seat of Government
There is no confirmation of the report
that Santa Anna had been wounded.
It was reported that General Quitman
was on his way down to Vera Ccuz with
despatches and four thousand men.
Col. Wilson was seriously ill.
Gen. Patterson would take the com
mand of the forces in the City and State
of Vera Cruz, or proceed to join Gen
eral Scott, as he should think proper on
his arrival there.
It is reported that the Yellow Fever
had made its appearance in Gen. Lane's
command, and that there was some scar
city of provisions.
Another rumor is, that the Guerillas
had fortified Cerro Gordo.
A letter from Maj. Lally, dated Jalapa,
Sept. 23d, says that all was quiet there.
His wound in the neck came near kill
ing him, but he was then doing well.
The steamship Alabama arrived at
New Orleans on Monday last from Vera
Cruz. Gen. LANE had advanced as far
as the National Bridge on his way to
join Gen. Scott, but was so harassed by
the guerilleros that he was compelled to
send to Vera Cruz for ammunition.
The Guerilleros are in large force all
along the road, and are said to he pre
paring to make a desperate stand at
Cerro Gordo under the command of Pa
The Picayune's Vera Cruz correspon
dent on the 25th ult. states that a report
was current that Santa Anna has resign
ed the Presidency and issued a Procla
mation to that effect. The writer, how
ever, had not seen the paper, though the
rumor was generally believed.
There has been nothing later from
Gen. Scott's army, and it is now evident
that all his official despatches have been
interrupted—indeed, it is impossible to
pass between the capitol and Vern Cruz,
unless in large force, and the difficulty
of communication is daily increasing.
The Picayune publishes a Proclama
tion by Santa Anna, dated Guadeloupe,
Sept. 14th, announcing that the Ameri
cans had taken Chapultepec on/the pre
ceding day, nfter a severe engagement
of six hours duration.
The Mexican Army had entirely evac
uated the capital to avoid its bombard
ment. The account in the New York
Sun, from this appears to be evidently a
hoax—or something worse.
The Mexican Government has become
migratory and resolved to follow the army
which was at Guadeloupe, but would
_still further from the
The enemy seems determined to wage
the war in every possible manner, and
the people were obeying the proclama
tions and flying to arms in every direc
Major Lally was at Jalapa on 23d ult
and all quiet there.
Col. Wilson is reported as extremely i".
We have received the sad particulars
of the double execution at Lemberg, of
the two Poles, Theophilus Wisniowski
and Joseph Kapusezinski. The sentence
which condemned them to be strangled,
had been read to them three days before,
in front of the court house, in the press
ence of the whole population. They
were accused of high treason, and they
were told they should be executed by
the cord. Their execution took place
on the 31st of June, and the crown
made of it an ovation, in testimony of
their sympathies. Every one uncover
ed himself and stood bare-headed as
they passed. They greeted them every
where with shouts of acclamation ; the
men waved their hats, the women their
handkerchiefs, and on all sdes, garlands
of flowers were thrown upon them in
such profusion, that to procure them,
for some time previous, every thing of
the kind had been exhausted, and more
could not be procured at any price. The
armed force in attendance was very nu
merous, but nothing could affright the
multitude, neither the number of the
bayonets, nor the presence of the agents
of the police. No one looked upon the
condemned criminals, but as martyrs of
Poland, who were sacrificed for their
country. Kapusczinski, as he stood on
the scaffold, exclaimed—May God bless
poor Poland! Wisniowski added—Be
none of you frightened by our death,
but persevere !
