Later from Mexico.

--The steamship Tennessee, which arrived at New Orleans, from Vera Cruz, brings dates from that port to the 23d, and from the capital to the 19th u-t.--Juarez had made his entry into the capital amid great rejoicings, and there were but two or three small armed bands of the beaten faction in the field, which might be easily dispersed. Isidro Diaz, one of Miramon's exministers, had been caught at Jalapa, and an order was transmitted from the government at the capital, to shoot him and every clergy leader as soon as they might be taken; but on the intercession of Miramon's wife, the order was countermanded within a few hours. The whereabouts of Miramon is not known. The last heard of him was, that he had escaped from a party which surrounded him by the free use of his revolver. The election for President took place on Sunday, the 20th ult., with what result is, of course, not known, though it is supposed by some that Lerdo de Tejada stands the best chance, since Juarez and Ortega have lost ground by their magnanimous clemency to vanquished enemies.--The new government will have their hands full. A number of foreign ministers have been dismissed, the governments of France and Great Britain have claims to prefer, and a war with Spain is regarded as probable.--The new Congress will meet in April, and with all these matters and the difficult task of reorganizing the country on their hands, their labor will not be light.
