--The news from Mexico, via Havana, is to the 2d inst. The Trait d' Union of that date says:

‘ "The army of the interior begins to make its appearance in the neighborhood of the capital, and amounts, as we are informed, to 25,000 men with a formidable train of artillery.--When these forces are united with those already occupying the plains around the capital. (10,000 men,) that city will find itself attacked by 35,000 men and about 200 pieces of artillery. The besiegers will not have assembled under the walls until the 15th December, and then operations will commence."
