Rejoicing at Vera Cruz.

--When the news of the recent triumph of the Constitutional arms at Mexico reached Vera Cruz, the Governor of the State, President of the Republic, Cabinet, and other officers, were at the Theatre. The Governor was the first to receive the dispatch, which, being confirmed, he read to the audience from his box, whereupon the whole audience rose, and gave such reception as was due to news so interesting and important, by long and repeated vivas.--From the Theatre the news also ran quickly through the city, which, for one night at least, and that after many of sorrow, was one of sincere and heartfelt rejoicing, unmilled with aught but the remembrance of past sufferings. A few days after, and the President, with the most important members of his Cabinet, set out for the capital.
