ield was now cleared for the elevation of General Miramon. He had from the beginning been the favois character; but his only act was to appoint Miramon President Substitute, when he again retired. But when we reflect that Zuloaga, from whom Miramon derived his title, was himself a military usunts, had now become still worse under that of Miramon. President Buchanan approved the step which rse finally terminated with the Government of Miramon; whilst none had been organized with that of al Mexican States, had not been able to expel Miramon from the capital.

The Captor of Guadalajara --Sufferings of the Besiegers. --The city of Guadalajara, Mexico, held by Miramon's forces, was captured on the 11th, by the Liberal party. The N. O. Picayune says: Guadalajara is the second city of the Republic, rich and prosperous, and has been defended with great obstinacy. It has long been, moreover, the principal stronghold of the reactionists in that part of the Republic, and its capture is believed to open the way direct to the capital. Our files abound in most touching letters from the besieged city, from which it would appear, as might indeed have been expected, that the suffering of the people was very great. We learn, indeed, from a letter of General Ortega himself, that on the 1st inst.the suffering had become so great that the fire upon the city was suspended for a space of three hours, that women and children might leave the town. How many actually left we are not informed, but it would appear that the number was small. In all
ted. The condition of Mexico is every day becoming worse and worse, instead of better.--Civil war rages through the whole length and breadth of that unhappy country, dividing cities, towns, villages, and even families, exhibiting the horrible spectacle sometimes of father and son arrayed in battle against each other, and brother shedding the blood of brother. Deeds of cruelty are occasionally perpetrated by the military commanders, which make the blood run cold. It is reported that Gen. Miramon has lately whipped to death a woman, and that woman in a situation which the most brutal generally respect, for the offence of endeavoring to effect the escape of her husband from prison. If this be true, no vengeance could be too great for such a monster; yet such are the furious passions always engendered by civil war. As brethren offended are the most bitter of all enemies, so civil war is the most merciless and vindictive of all contests. To that more than to any other kind of hosti

Later from Mexico. New Orleans,Nov. 20.--Intelligence from Vera Cruz to the 5th inst. has been received. Miramon had resigned the Presidency and been succeeded by Robles. The Reactionists had evacuated Puebla, Great alarm existed at the capital.
risoners, however, were soon after set at liberty, on the capitulation of the city, which was the necessary consequence of the battle. Gen. Doblado was expected on the 19th of November in Guanajuato, where great preparations were on foot for welcoming him. Seven thousand more cavalry were expected in Morelin, to march with the Liberal forces upon Mexico. Rajas and "Brownsville" Carvajal are their leaders. The British Legation at the city of Mexico had been sacked by order of Miramon and Robles, and from the million of dollars there on deposit, belonging to the English bondholders, nearly one-half of a million has been taken by force, neither respecting seal or flag of the British nation. In the absence of Mr. Mathew, the British Charge, the Spanish Minister has protested against the outrage. Every effort is made to defend the city, the only spot now in the possession of the Church party. The Spanish Minister, it is said, was to leave for Puebla, finding the regi
The conducta Seizure in Mexico,&c. New Orleans, Nov. 28.--The schooner Melpomene, from Tampico on the 16th, reports that in the case of the seized conducta, the courts had decided upon a pro rata distribution, and the money had been recovered. Everybody was preparing for a change of ">government." Miramon, it was reported, had declared his inability to defend the capital. As last accounts say the Constitutionalists had captured Tacubaya and Guadalajara, there was little doubt that the capital would surrender.
Intelligence from Mexico. --Letters from Vera Cruz state that a Convention, held at the Capital, composed of officers of the Church and of the military, had appropriated $300,000 per month of the Churches funds to sustain Miramon in the defence of the capital. On the 5th the Juarez Government proclaimed that after April, 1861, all duties are to be paid in cash, half of which may be in sight bills on the city of Mexico, for the purpose of paying indemnities. All goods remaining in the Custom-House over one month shall be sold to pay duties. The various foreign Ministers, except the Minister of Spain, were at Jaiapa. Gen. Mata was the prominent candidate for Governor of Vera Cruz. Juarez has raised a loan of $600,000 for the purchase of supplies for the army now before the capital.
Sale of the Mexican prize steamers. New Orleans,, Jan. 21. --The Mexican prize steamers Gen. Miramon and Marquis de Habana, were sold on yesterday to parties in Havana. The former brought $12,500, and the latter $20,000.
Later from Mexico. New Orleans, Jan. 23. --Advices from Vera Cruz to the 10th, say that Miramon and some of his officers had been captured by the Indians. Juarez, it is stated, entered the capital on the 5th inst.
amid great rejoicings, and there were but two or three small armed bands of the beaten faction in the field, which might be easily dispersed. Isidro Diaz, one of Miramon's exministers, had been caught at Jalapa, and an order was transmitted from the government at the capital, to shoot him and every clergy leader as soon as they might be taken; but on the intercession of Miramon's wife, the order was countermanded within a few hours. The whereabouts of Miramon is not known. The last heard of him was, that he had escaped from a party which surrounded him by the free use of his revolver. The election for President took place on Sunday, the 20th ult., with wMiramon is not known. The last heard of him was, that he had escaped from a party which surrounded him by the free use of his revolver. The election for President took place on Sunday, the 20th ult., with what result is, of course, not known, though it is supposed by some that Lerdo de Tejada stands the best chance, since Juarez and Ortega have lost ground by their magnanimous clemency to vanquished enemies.--The new government will have their hands full. A number of foreign ministers have been dismissed, the governments of France a
