In order more accurately to illus trate our dangerous position at that time, it will be requisite to describe the prairie: on our rear was a strip of woodland, about two and a half miles ill width, and in our front, another piece of greater length than the former, through which ran the stream Coletto. from which the battle de rives its name : the front and rear woods were distant from eatli other from 7 to 9 miles, and our forces were from two to thtee miles from the front woods, whilst on our rigdit and left av. equal distances, say about 5 miles, there was also thick woods, the prairi- being nearly in form of a circle. The enemy bad now formed a semicircle on our right and left, aud sis we had no means of tnoyiug our artillery but by stubborn and worn out oxen, were fast surrounding us ; Captains Hnrst anil Holland, of the artillery were ordered to the rear to keep up a retreating fire under co ver ttf which the army advanced about a mild aud a half in the face of tho enemy; it noiv be came necessary for us to take a position as ne were entirely surrounded, our cavalry cut off from us and escaped, leaving us now two hun dred ami fifty men, cousistiug of the following Bright shapes are around her, and all the day long Her grotto is rife with the mermaiden’s song ; But the water-sprite comes like a vision to lean.

We were about 309 yards to the left of the road, in a vallev of about six feet below the mean base, of abou' one fourth of a mile ; we uere uu- formnatelv obliged to take that very disadvan tageous position in consequence of our having pursued our advauce so far iu order to gain *he woods; we drew our wagons into a cluster, form ed ourselves into an oblong circle around them and posted our artillery in position* to defend it; the circle was about 40 feet of shortest centra! diameter, and about 60 feet of longest diameter. It was uo«r one o’clock, P. M., at which time we were attacked oil all sides by the earn y, with a brisk fire of musketry ; we were ordered not to fire until the command was given, in order to draw the enemy within rifle shot—we reserved our fire for about ten minutes, and several were wounded in our ranks previous to our firing; at the request oftlie officers, the artillery was per mitted to open fire, the wind was blowingsli jht- Iv from the N. E. aud the smoke of our cannou covered the enemy, under which thejr made a desperate charge but were repulsed with a very jievere loss ; our canuou was loaded with cannis- ters of mttske; balls, and the howitze was charg ed with grist—iu this manner the action was kepi up with great fury by the enemy: charge af ter charge ' eiug made by ravalrv and infantry, and always repelled with heavy loss on iheii part. Our men behaved nobly, and though surrounded !>y ov«,rwhrlming numbers, not a change ofenun- tenante could be seen. Thus was the battle kept up, aud upon the re CoL.Faunin. ‘‘Seeing the Texian army entirely overpowered by a far superior force, and to avoid the effusion of blood, w$ surrender ourselves prisoners of war, under tho following terms: Art 1st.

The officers were then called upon to deliver' their side arms, which were boxed up, with their' names placed by a ticket |tpon each, aud a label upon the box stating, that they should soon have the houarrof returning them, and that it was their' principle to meet us now as frieuds and net as enemies. Col. Fannin and the men were that afternoon inarched back to i.a Bahia, the wounded toge ther with the captain of each company, and our' surgeons, were left ou the field.torlress’tlie woun ded, which was completed on tho 21st, when we were all conveyed back to the fort, where we found the men in a most miserable state. They were brutally treated—they were allowed- hut ve ■ ry little water to drink, in consequence of its* having to be brought Irom the river, and -but a small piece of meat without salt, bread, or vege tables. On the 23d, Major Miller, with 90 men, were brought into the fort prisoners; they had just lauded at Copauo from the United States. Ou the 2 ;th, the Georgia Battalion was also brought in. it haviug been surprised and captur ed between Victoria and Deinill’s 1’oint. and marched back aud confined with us. Here tve were now nearly 500 strong, guarded by 1000 Mexicans, without being allowed the slightest li-' berty in any respect. The Mexicaushnd always said that Santa An na would lie at La Bahia on tbe 27th, to release; us. Accordingly ou that day, we were ordered to form all the prisoners; we were told that wo were going to bring wood and water, aud that Santa Auua would be there thatda^; we were ordered to march all the officers at the headvof the file, except Co}. Fatmiu, who lay wounded in the hospital. As wc marched out of the sally port we saw hollow squares formed ready to re ceive us ; we were ordered to file left, and inarch ed into a hollow square of double filed cavalry, ou foot, armed with carbines, commonly called sco- pnts, and broadswords. This square was filled and closed, and the. heads’ of the remaining files wheeled oft’ into the other squares, aud so ou, until all were guarded iu squares; the company of which the writer of this was one, was ordered to forward, and no more was seen of our unfortunate comrades, We march ed out oil the Bexar road, near the burying ground, and as we were ordered to hair, we heard our ompauiousshriekiiig in the mest agonizing tones, ‘Oh.

On or about the 12lh of 51arch, Orders were issued by Gen; Houston,Vo destroy tho town and fort of La Bahin. and the forces to fail back to Gonzales, to unite with him and concentrate all the Texian foices. Prior to the receipt of these orders Capt. King's company was oidercd to the .Mission, (a distance of about 25 miles,) in order to relieve some fami lies who were' in danger of falling into the ene mies’hands. Upon their arrival at tho Mission duty were met and attacked by a large body of the enemy and after a gallant and well sustained fight, retreated iu an orderly and judicious man lier to tho Church, where they sustained them selves against a very superior number of Mexi cans and iudiaus with but small loss to them selves, but a severe loss to tho enemy, until re lieved by the Georgia battalion uuder Col. Wan!, who had been sent to their aid. This separation of our forces, caused us to delay our retreat. Ao express was sent tq Col. Ward at the 5Iissio:i, to fall back and joiu their forces at Goliad with all possible despatch, or should he be cut off by the enemy, (of whose advance from Kan Patricio we had intelligence,) to make'good his retreat thro’ the Guadaloupe bottom, and join the army at Victoria. In the mean time, Ecouts were kept pu the alert, riding in all directions; andou the 15th we were reinforced by a company of horsd from Matagorda, uuder command of Col. Horton, n- bout 40 in number. This proved a timciy suc cour, as our scouts wore much iu want of horses. On the 16th, our scouts brought intelligence that a body of the enemy, 1500 strong, were on the gan Antonio mad 51auy of-the canuou having been dismounted preparatory to a rotreat. we im mediately remouutcd them, as wc anticipated an attack that uight. About 12 o’clock the picket gu’irit gave the alarm, and retreated mio the fort; it however proved to be only the enemy’s spies reconnoitring. On the 17th, the enemy forded the 'fou Antonio river, aud shewed them selves at the old Alission, a distance from our fort of 4 miles. This day we destroyed the whole towu of La Bahia by (ire, battering down atl ruin ed walls^ so as to sccuie us a full sweep of tho enemy, should they attack the fort.

The fight con tinued until rlusk, when the enemy retreated, leaving u-- masters of the field, with ten men kil Jed anil wounded, while the enemy lay aroutld heap upou heap. YVe possessed a great advan tage over the Alexicans; they having no ariftery, and we having nine pieces with which wc. kept up an incessant fire of inusket balls. It now became prudent to take measures as to our next pri cednre. accordingly ihe officers were all summoned to Colonel Fannin, where he lay wounded, and the question was whether we should main'aiti our present position or retreat ; it was carried that we should sustain ourselves as long as possible, considering we had disabled a large, part of our enemy, and ou the other hand we conld not retreat, nud at the same time bear off our wounded, baggage or cannon, our oxen having strayed away during the fight. Conse quently, we commenced heaving’ up a tedonbt some jhree feet above the level, of the prairie, ex elusive of the dvke. The night was now very dark anddoudy, driz zling with rain and misty fog,, the enemy encom passed us, and kept up a continual sound to ch-irge, so that we appeared to he sui rounded with bugles. YVe had with us 1000 spare mus kets, which we loaded aud earh man took an e qoal share, our cannon ammunition heiDg nearly exhausted. Daylight broke upon us in this situa tion, and some of our men went out about a hun dred yards and brought into camp two '.Mexican prisoners, both badly wounded, from them wo • ascertained that the number opposed m us was 1900 men. and that a reinforcement of two bri gades of artillery would be there that morning if they had not already arrived, we had no sooner recr-ived this intelligence than this very artillery opened their cannon upon us ihey had placed them behind • small hillork and were entirely un der cover, we could neither touch them with our cannon nor charge; as they had io placed their cavalry, that the momeut we should quit our ar tillery they would cut us to. pieces. YVe accord ingly met in rnunril to devifce niejns abd measures it was accordingly decided that wo should send a (1 g of truce-to the enemy, and if possible obtain a treaty, if upon fair and honorable teems; ac cordingly Oapt.
