In further pursuance of his policy of the important positions on the Gulf, he is also about to throw a proper force into Tampico, the second largest seaport of Mexico. Having already occupied Vera Cruz and Matamoras, he leaves no commercial or military point of importance on the Gulf unoccupied, and we shall soon hear that those of the --Mazatlan. Acapulco, San Blas, etc — have not been overlooked. Maximilian will find his house pretty well in order by the time he arrives; but it is not improbable that he will find some roubles already matured to his hand in his relations with the Yankee Government.
