All regular mail communication with Bogota being still suspended, the only intelligence received from there and the seat of war is through private sources.
The latest advices from the Capital are to the 15th of April, brought by Mr. James E. Chambers, bearer of dispatches from General Jones, resident Minister of the United States near the Government of the Grenadian Confederation.
The general aspect of affairs is about the same as at last reports Gen. Mosquera had not marched on Bogota on the 17th of April. On that day Mr. Chambers, accompanied by Gen. Jones, visited his headquarters, which were established at Villeta within two days march of the Capital, for the purpose of getting his passport vised. He represents Mosquera's force to be quite large and enthusiastic, while the Government force at Bogota, he says, is composed principally of persons who were pressed into the service against their wishes, from which he infers that Mosquera will achieve an easy victory.
