Diplomatic Mission.

--A correspondent of the Atlanta Register says:

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 under Buchanan. 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.
