Mexican news.

--We have by the Tennessee, Mexican newspapers from the capital as late as due. Affairs appear to be progressing as before the usurpation of Zuloaga.--All the old journals, the Heralado, Siglo, Estafette and Extraordinary, have made their reappearance, and none of them, during their long suspension, appear to have changed in sentiment. The expulsion, as it is called, of the Spanish Minister, Papal Nuncio, and Charge d' Affaires of Guatemala and Ecuador, is, of course, the subject of extended comments, as also of considerable excitement at the capital. Some think a Spanish war is sure to follow. But the more judicious think there will be a general acquiescence in the just right of the new Government to suspend intercourse with persons, though representatives of foreign Governments, who are personally or otherwise obnoxious to them — a right derivable not only from the practice of all Governments, but the Law of Nations.

The Mazatlan correspondent of the Extraordinary writes that the French frigate Seriouse had seized, at San Blas, a vessel belonging to the Government of Sinaloa, and had demanded the payment of $10,000, and that the French flag should be saluted by the officers of the port, on account of some insult offered to the Consul. No further particulars are given.

The confiscated church property of Guanajuato has been selling out at 25 per cent. cash down, and the balance to be paid in bonds of the interior debt within twelve months.--Large amounts, however, still remain unsold.

The National Congress is called to meet at the capital on the third Tuesday of April.
