they were going on an expedition to work the silver mines of Sonora. --They came down to Mazatlan on the steamer, and thence traveled across Northern Mexico to the Rio Grande. The journey was made on mules, in company, for a portion of the distance, with a merchant's train. The route lay through a difficult and dangerous country, in which they were beset with perils of various kinds; having often to encounter bands of banditti, which now roam the country at will — and sometimes the ferocious Apaches and Lipaus. They came through the several States of Sonora, Durango, New Leon, and Tama plisas taking in the towns of Durango, Parras, Stitillo, Monterey, Serralvo and Mier, in their route, and finally crossing the Rio Grande at Roma. Their overland journey extended to a distance of 1,700 miles. They left San Francisco on the 5th of December, and arrived here yesterday, having been at days on the road. We believe it is the desire of these gentlemen to enter the Confederate service.
