Sir Charles Wyke, the English Minister, arrived on the night of the 24th, having stopped some days at Orizaba, where there was intense feeling against the Spaniards. Daza, Governor of Mexico, had been deposed, and Azcarate appointed in his stead. The Mexican Cortez closed on the 15th after fully authorizing the President to adopt all measures he might deem prudent in regard to the "Spanish invasion." General Parrodi had been named Minister of War. General Gasset, of the Spanish forces, had established a custom-house in Vera Cruz, and Uraga had

Being forced conscripts they are never contented. The attempt to get up an exhibition of agriculture, industry and fine arts has failed. The first portion of the Sancti Espiritu Railroad was opened on the 29th ult. On the 28th ult. the English steamer Labuan sailed under very suspicious circumstances for Matamoras.
