Spanish defeat in Mexico

--By way of San Francisco we have report that the Spanish army had suffered defeat at the National Bridge, the Rio Antigua, thirty miles Yerz Cruz. The battle which of pass is said to have lasted five hours, doubtless hotly disputed. The one very much exposed, and if the posted themselves, as we have to believe, in the surrounding hills, from the first must have been greatly last the Spaniards. If the report be true, will have gained considerable from the circumstance of their the first battle over their invaders, and of the allies attempting to the country, or of Spain re-establishing her old authority over it, will become apparent. It would be premature, however to speculate very far upon its character results at the present moment, when our mention is so vague and meagre; but that will have a hard time in Mexico we convinced, and that she will be finally to abandon it with considerable herself seems inevitable.--New York.
