Important from Mexico
--Mysterious Movement of the French, English, and Spanish Ministers, &c.,&c.,
By way of Texas
we have some late and important intelligence from Mexico
The Houston Telegraph
, of the 4th, copies the following from the Brownsville Flag
Last week we published a meagre account of the withdrawal of the French English
, and Spanish ministers from Mexico
, and of the consequent suspension of diplomatic relations between the four countries.
The matter is kept profoundly quiet by the Mexican
press, but from what we have learned from private sources we understand the difficulty to have resolved itself into the following from: The retiring ministers left for Vera Cruz
, and immediately gave orders to the naval squadrons of their different Governments to concentrate at that place and at some point on the Pacific
side, when it is designed to seize all the Mexican
custom-houses and appoint officers to conduct them for the different nations claiming debts from Mexico
Under the stipulation entered into between Captain Dunlop
, of the British
navy, and the constitutional Government of Vera Cruz
, Great Britain
is entitled to a certain per cent.
of the revenue derived from customs at Vera Cruz
, and it is intended now to apply this arrangement to all the ports of Mexico
It is not intended that Mexico
shall have more than thirty per cent., we believe, of revenues, which are to be collected and managed by European
, whom we noticed last week as being on the march after Marquez
, is reported as having come up with his opponent near Cuernavaca
, and to have beat him in a pitched battle.
We doubt the truth of the report, however.
Rumor says that 3,000 Federal, or rather United States troops, have been landed at San Blas
, or at some other point on the Pacific coast
, for the purpose of marching across the country towards Tucson
and forming a junction with the troops in New Arizona
, and then entering Texas
by way of El Paso
If such is the case, they will probably be surprised to learn that their friends have been captured, and that they will have to meet a strong Texas
force instead of a strong body of Federal friends.
The election in the State
of Tamaulipas for Governor having resulted, as the friends of Serna aver, in their favor, it is publicly announced that a small revolution will have to occur before Mr. Serna
can reap the fruits of his victory.
We know nothing of this matter more than we are told, which is that Gen. Gareia
says he does not intend to allow the successful party to take office.
has a strong force to back him, and it is probable that he may keep his friends in power.
, an old retired Mexican
officer, has been in Matamoras
the past week, and it is thought that he is having a hand in the row which is brewing in Tamaulipas.
