Interesting from Mexico. --We take the following paragraph from a letter dated City of Mexico, October 29, and published in the New York Herald: Strange whispers are on the air that the agent of the Confederate States, learning the proposed disembarkation of troops at Guaymas, offered $2,000,000 to this Government for the use of the port of Matamoras; all of which being reported to the Legation, the American Minister held out a counter offer of $6,000, 0000, and that, in great disgust at the discovery that the Mexican Cabinet has only been playing with his eagerness to extort a higher bid from him, Mr. Corwin talks of going home in November. He will carry with him such treaties or conventions, for ratification at Washington, as the alarm of the Government shall suffer to remain intact. --Startled at the fact that Col. Pickett has denounced as an act of hostility to the rebels the license to pass U. S. troops through Mexican territory to invade Arizona and Texas, these peo
s, Tenn., Dec. 11, 1861. To the Avalanche: --Having made my escape from the Federal prison located near Columbus, Ohio, I deem it due to the two hundred and forty brave but unfortunate Southern men whom I left incarcerated there on the 29th of October last, to make known to the South and to the world the suffering and indignities to which they are subjected by their inhuman jailors. The Government prison to which I refer is at Camp Chase, about four miles south of the city of Columbus were allowed in the prison to warm the half naked and shivering prisoners. Promises were made from time to time by the subordinate officers that the prison should be warmed either by stoves or by a steam-heating apparatus, but up to the 29th day of October no steps had been taken looking to that end. To add to the discomfort of the poor prisoners, the wretched shanties, their only shelter, leaked badly, keeping the floor, their only bed, and even their scanty bed clothing, soaked with water.

l the 6th of January, when he received an unconditional discharge. It was also stated their other British subjects had been confined in the same prison, and subject to various restrictions. They had been treated in violation of international rights and privileges. He would not make any comments on the subject, because he could not bring himself to believe that the facts were as they had been stated. Earl Russell, who was very indistinctly heard, was understood to say that on the 29th of October, a letter was written to Lord Lyons by a Mr. Shepherd, saying that while traveling by railway — he had been an agent of the Grand Trunk Railway--he was arrested and sent to a prison in New York, on a charge of conspiracy against the United States. That gentleman further stated the charge was quite untrue, and that he was a loyal British subject. It further appeared that he was asked to take the oath of allegiance to the United States, and refused to do so. Lord Lyons sent a representat

y Cameron) just in time to defeat the robbery. But on this point we may hear ex-Secretary Floyd himself. At Richmond he expressly claimed the honor of defeating all my plans and solicitations respecting the forts, and received his reward; it being there universally admitted that but for that victory over me there could have been no rebellion! 3. Mr. Buchanan complains that I published, without permission, January 13, 1861, my views, ad- dressed to him and the Secretary of War, October 29 and 30. 1860. But that act was caused, as I explained to him at the time, by the misrepresentations of the views in one of the earlier speeches of the same ex-Secretary after his return to Virginia 4. One of my statements, complaining of the joint countermand, sent through the Secretaries of War and Navy, to prevent the landing at Fort Pickens of Capt. Vodges's company, unless the fort should be attacked, is cited by the ex-President to proven, "singular want of memory" on my part; a
A Gigantic Bankruptcy. --In the London Court of Bankruptcy, on the 27th ult., Zachariah Charles Pearson, of Nicholas Lane, Lombard street, and of Kingston-upon-Hull (trading under the title of Z. C. Pearson & Co.,) came upon his adjourned examination. This was one of the largest failures which ever came into the Court, not excepting the Royal British Bank, or the great speculations in leather, Messrs. Lawrence, Streatfeild & Mortimore. The debts were more than £645,000, and the deficit acknowledged to be £213,574. The bankrupt's speculations were various — from a sale of the celebrated vessel, the Merrimac, for £131,785, to £1764 of acceptances to Mr. L. Seymour on account of the Southern Times. The case was adjourned for examination of accounts till October 29th, when the meeting for the final order will take pl

Heavy firing is still going on. [second Dispatch.] Charleston, Oct. 29. --Batteries Gregg and Wagner kept up a continuous fire on Sumter last night. The monitors took no part during the night. There were no casualties, and Maj. Elliott, commanding, reports all well and in good spirits. There was very little firing from the enemy on the other fortifications. Our batteries kept up a regular fire on Morris Island. One gun at battery Gregg is reported to have been silenced last night by a shot from Moultrie. [third Dispatch.] Charleston, Oct. 29. --The enemy's fire to-day was exceedingly severe, and concentrated altogether on the sea face of Sumter. Seven hundred and seventy nine shots were fired from Gregg and Wagner and two monitors, eighty of which missed. One man was killed at th
From Bay St. Louis. Pascagoula, Oct. 29. --A courier from Bay St. Louis says that one hundred Yankees, under cover of the gunboat Commodore, landed at that place on the 23d, surprised and attacked our cavalry, wounding one man slightly, and Capt. Marshall severely though the body. They recaptured four prisoners previously taken, burned four houses, plundered the place, and carried off some negroes.
