Mr. Montgomery Slaughter was chosen Mayor. Last night his friends seemed very jubilant — so much so that your correspondent was several times interrupted in his slumbers by the shouting near his window.

After dinner the rebel flag was raised and the Mexican General and staff removed their caps and saluted it — the Mexican General making a speech, in which he said the Confederacy would soon be recognized, and concluded by inviting the rebels to a grand banquet at Matamoras, and promising to also salute their flag with twenty-one guns.
