--A correspondent of the Atlanta Register
Brigadier General Wm Preston
, whose troops won such distinction at Chickamauga
, is safety on his way to Mexico
as Minister Plenipotentiary
to that court.
He sailed early in January from a Confederate port.
He was formeryl Minister to Spain
He is instructed to make a treaty with Maximilian
, based upon the mutual recognition of the two Governments, with commercial clauses, granting reciprocal privileges of trade and commerce.
A recognition by Maximilian
will be tantamount to a recognition by France
