The at ital Monitor a new literary a j i per published in new York contains a sketch of a portion of the military operations in Maxi co entitled life in the army or t of he mexican War by a new York Volun t Leer the style of the writer is Plain and it Lucid and he narrates with much liveliness t and directly to the Point. Here is an account. Of the storming of Chepultepec. R it was a sombre morning the heavens be f ing obscured with dense Black Clouds there in fore not a Wall of the Castle was visible to r the Eye not even the Hill on which it stood could be seen nothing but the Brilliant Light i that illuminated it attracted the Eye present e ing a Grund imposing spectacle concon t traction of Briliant meteors suspended from the 1 Black Clouds above being the nearest limit c etude to it. As we neared the Cuttle the pos 1 o sible caution was observed. The men were cautioned not to allow their tin canteens to strike against their muskets or Cartridge boxes i a word was allowed spoken in the ranks eve t by possible precaution was taken to keep the enemy in ignorance of our approach. On t Ward we in arched with noiseless s eps silent it tongues and palpitating hearts. Near and i Neur we approached the formidable Castle,1 bristling with heavy artillery and containing twelve thousand of Mexico s Best troops and commanded by one of her bravest and Best generals. Suddenly we were brought to Ahalt tho division to which i was attached be Jling intended to support tho Battery under the i command of capt. Drum which had been Crew 1 j led during the night directly under the Cas tie. Just As we halted the shrill notes of a trumpet assailed our ears. Then the rolling of Drums were heard and presently a full brass bund joined in. It was the enemy playing the reveille. A death Lik e stillness a prevailed in our ranks at the time not a whisper or a breathing could be heard there Foro so unsuspected was the music that when it struck the ear it caused a momentary thrill to shoot through my Frame i Felt a Peculiar indescribable sensation. I have no doubt i others experienced the same. J the music was suddenly interrupted. I bang or went one of the huge pieces artillery from drum s Bat Terry and for a moment the dreadful vhf Bill of its Iron death messenger was heard through the air and then its fatal crash As it struck the Castle instantly every Light in the House was quenched and it was invisible shrouded in dark i Ness. Silence was no longer observed in our ranks the commanding voice of Baxter to Forward Wai heard. We marched a Short distance filed to the right und halted up a position in supporting distance of Cut. Drum s Battery. Presently the sombre Clouds that obscured the heavens separated a Streak of Light wis visible in the Eastern horizon the Day was breaking. Light and lighter it gradual by grew objects that had been previously invisible now appeared to the Light. Anon the blazing Sun peeped Forth from the dark hiding place diffusing a Hood of Light upon the Earth and revealing to our astonished sight the White missive Sivalls of Chepultepec the huge muzzles of a Hundred heavy pieces of artillery that peered from their respective Embra sures and the glittering bayonets of at least eight thousand infantry. In the Woods surrounding the Hustle and at the base of thai High Hill upon which it stood. This was our first sight of the Castle and i gazed upon its imposing appearance with admiration contemplating at the same moment the mighty convulsion that was to Folklan an attack upon its impregnable Walls the Livee that must necessary rally be sacrificed the wives made widows the parents child sas Brothers and Sisters mourners helpless children perhaps fatherless casting iry Little bund that stood eyes Over the Gallant before me companions who had escaped through storms of Lead Aud Iron who had i fought by my Side in All the preceding Battles i the sad and awful conviction forced itself upon my mind that in a Brief time Many of them whose smiling faces and cheerful i hearts betokened no thought of the Morrow i would lie in the cold icy embrace of doth. T the loud report of u gun from the Castle i and the startling noise of grape and canister i As it went crashing and tearing through the tall dense pull the Plant in nay immediate k Vicinity checked Uli further reflections on j my part. The enemy had discovered us and was evidently determined to do us All tho in j f jury that a possible could. Cannon alter r Cannon and huge mortars on the Walls of the 3 Castle vomited Forth unremittingly their ponderous round shot grape canister and f Shell doing us however but Little injury As t we had taken the precaution to occupy it be s cure position. The suns from our several batteries at different commanding Points promptly answered the enemy sending Forth d their deadly contents in reply. Al Day from Daylight until the Sabla curtains of night d shrouded the contending armies in darkness the booming of Cannon the bursting of the crashing of grape and canister or and the Sharp Repert of greeted the in tar. Jar various incidents hat Enma under my of fit Ler vation during the Day now feed them a r selves upon my memory. Ite capt. Drum s Battery which keel up a con lie it ant and destructive fire upon the Castle the whole Day Wae stationed about Lily Yards Rem the right of my regiment. Our whole it division commanded by general Quitman co insisting of the 2d pen al Veivia and South to Arzina volunteers and a Batt Klijn b United or states marines besides tote new York vel Inears also occupied a petition in supporting of Lla Tanea of tho Battery.

W 1 he fellow had conducted himself in this the Napier for two or three hours when a shot re rom our Battery made desperate havoc with in my of the of the Castle. The Ter to Ible crash could be distinctly hear and the in Clouds of dust that ascended in to the nil from i he demolished masonry presented a i Luro i in i a r to a vast conflagration. The n Gre j w Light at this moment was unbounded do i w Hreve himself on the ground rolled Over and diver and kicked and squirmed like a in it it Mil uttering loud joyous exclamations.

It was the poor negro s 1 or before he had an Opportunity to resume 81 Lis position it struck him in tho stomach " completely tearing out his entrails and of " instantly depriving him of life. The to r 1 Ellow s merry voice was silenced in death. " within Misket Range of Captain drum s 0 Lattery a Small fore of Tua Simony i. Fifty occupied a position that enabled them o annoy us very ranch and Occas Oua by kill 8i or wound one of the men stationed at the to Ifune. These men were undoubtedly Sharp shooters and were stretched along for per haps sixty Yards in a deep ditch. Taking to advantage of every Opportunity that presented w self of making their services available Toltsi stir detriment they would partially raise up to discharge their weapons at us and then Quick c by resume their lying position. These fell flows had been harassing us so Long and 30 i fatal Wythal general Shields who commanded i la brigade to which my regiment was attach is d deemed it advisable to dislodge them. Of pot that purpose n detachment of thirty men a i Iuler the command of a lieutenant was sent1 u Forward. The lieutenant gallantly and a 1 c Lily advanced with his men under u Sharp l ire proceeding from those occupying the g pitch. Before he had advanced Forward sixty ii Ards thereof his men were shot Den. Still w this did not intimidated him or his men. One pushed rapidly nearing the enu Tny.

Forward to the lieutenant pressed and just As he was i it within about ten Yards of the , a masked to buttery in its immediate Vicinity opened its murderous upon tho Little Purly. When it the smoke cleared away but three of that Gal 1 a Lan band stood upon their feet a he remainder s with the lieutenant were stretched upon the j to blood dam p ground frightful mangled corpses h the three survivors stood bewildered for n 1 moment and then recovering themselves o speedily rejoined us. P we too Hud our Sharp shooter s stationed at advantage oui positions around tho Castle Jav and the Many mexicans that we found the " next Day stiff in death with their forehead d pierced with balls Bare proof of the accuracy n of the aim. The mounted riflemen is the la regiment that i alluded to. This regiment 1 wus composed of tho Best body of men near j n Lyall americans that lever saw.

An incident that i witnessed on the 12th suggests the men s lining of the regiment in. Order to introduce e the incident itself. T from the base of the Hill on which the Cas c tic of Chepultepec stands running u to the s Castle itself is a Broad Piv cd Road. Down i this Road during the i orning a horse mount Ted by in officer wus iraqi Only seen to dash furiously. Tho rider was undoubtedly in currying orders from general Bravo stationed at the foot of the Hill. He i Woro a very showy Cap and therefore i won i dered he escaped our rifles. His horse was richly and Sho wily Capri toned and he him t self was dressed in it gorgeous uniform in 1 Short he was As Gay As a Peacock As the t eccentric but Gallant curtain Fairchild remarked it the time. I loud my eyes fixed t intently upon him the lust time i saw him lashing Down the Road expecting every moment to Seo him fall from h. Saddle. But he t escaped. Then 1 awaited it return.

We were soon Wever informed that we were not Tore Ain Long in our present position that the tilt was to be stormed. At this announce in t every Eye was in a moment directed Warda that formidable imposing Structure id a deep murmur throughout the ranks be keyed that the news was received with the greatest satisfaction we were now and us y awaiting the order to move Forward. Could not help remarking at this awful cri when so Many in our ranks were on the Ink of being dashed into eternity a solemn it y and silence among the men deeper than Ever . With hearts beat in each wus waiting to hear the expected order to Forward at last it came.

But without a pause our men shed gallantly Forward and turning to the it into n vast Field directly in front of the Astle with a shout that fairly Shook the eave Nii Onward they rus cd headed by the Allan Baxter.

Ill our regiment dashed boldly Forward in i the Stone Wall surrounding the base of the iii on which the Castle stood was reach i. Hen a Short delay was necessarily made in order to enable the remaining regiments com Osing the division to come up. Some Sharp gating took place it this Point the enemy Ere shortly driven from their position and tiled by Ladd is we sealed the lower and asked up the Precipitin a Hill now Eoin i fenced a struggle that my pen is inadequate describe.

Now enthusiastic bouts and the report of musketry were heard n our right and left proceeding from the rooms under generals Worth Pillow and thers.

A scientific gentleman who was present it the discovery the continue the examinations in order to the Complete she Eton but was prevented in of the rapid filling up of the Rench with water the that neighbourhood being Terr marshy. An expenditure of four Hundred dolls would be necessary to Drain the land sufficiently to allow al further operations. When that sum shall be raise do Prol. Morse has volunteered his valuable assistance in Disint ering and putting together the remains of the Poughkeepsie Mega theri us if Uny such creature should turn up. That the prosecution of the excavation will Reward the explorer for his expense and Trou ble is More than possible. The Region along the Banks of the Hudson above the High land appears to have been a favorite locality for these gig Anlie quadrupeds. Indeed it was Here that the first of the existence of their remains on this continent were procured. Godman the late american naturalist informs us that is Early is 1812 a letter from or. Malher to or. Woodward Wao published in the Philo Pui Ca l transactions announcing that seme Teeth and Bones of monstrous size had been discovered at Albany and in lj01, e years afterwards the first Skeleton known in modern times of this wonderful animal was Dis entombed on the shores of the Hudson about eighty Milen below. Rembrandt Peale has written a minute account of the exertions of his father and him self in a transaction interesting to the Scien i Tiftic world. A German Farmer in 1793, Liv ing in the Vicinity of Newburgh while digging a Marl pit came upon a number of Bones which on account of their remarkable size he preserved in his Garret or granary where Tivey were sometimes visited by the curious. Fortunately or. C. W. Peale u As Able to buy these Iraq meals which went a goad Way constituting an entire Skeleton. For three months the father and son v Ith numerous workmen and expensive machinery Pali etly pursued their excavations Over an area of Many Square Miles. Sometimes two Hundred la Boi ers were employed sir Quitane 1 Ousby. The narrative of the excitements Aud the discouragements incident to their toils is of deep interest but too detailed f r extended quotation. When their Success was finally crowned by the Long sought and Long deferred discovery of the enormous under a the unconscious Woods says Rembrandt Peale echoed with repeated Huzzah which could not have been More Ari maled every tree had participated in the juy. "gracious1 god what a jaw How Many animals have1 been crushed by it was the exclamation of All.

Our venerable relics ears the narrator were carefully packed up in distinct cases and loading two wagons Wilh them we bade Adieu to the Val Leys and stupendous mountains of Shawvan gun from the Bones thus obtained two skeletons nearly perfect were framed the j Summit of the head and the end of tho Tail in each Case being the Only deficiencies. There is therefore reason to suppose that a similar result might attend further experiments of the same kind in the neighbourhood of Poughkeepsie. All that is wanting Proba Bly is a subscription for the Small amount which we have mentioned to add another to the scant collection now existing of these memorials of an age Anterior to the periods of a.
