The gunboat Clifton, captured in the recent grand victory, had been put in first-rate fighting trim. She and her armament had been tested, and found of the best quality. News from Brownsville to the 16th ult. had been received. The French had not then taken possession of Matamoras. It was stated that they would shortly seize one or two other places besides Tampico, and were expected to move on Monterey by way of Victoria. Gen. Slaughter had arrived at Brownsville via Havana. President Davis has just arrived here from Mississippi, and will review the troops this evening.
