Interesting from Mexico.
--We take the following paragraph from a letter dated City of Mexico
, October 29, and published in the New York Herald
Strange whispers are on the air that the agent of the Confederate States
, learning the proposed disembarkation of troops at Guaymas
, offered $2,000,000 to this Government for the use of the port of Matamoras
; all of which being reported to the Legation, the American Minister
held out a counter offer of $6,000, 0000, and that, in great disgust at the discovery that the Mexican Cabinet
has only been playing with his eagerness to extort a higher bid from him, Mr. Corwin
talks of going home in November.
He will carry with him such treaties or conventions, for ratification at Washington
, as the alarm of the Government
shall suffer to remain intact. --Startled at the fact that Col. Pickett
has denounced as an act of hostility to the rebels the license to pass U. S. troops through Mexican territory
to invade Arizona
, these people — Cabinet, Congress and all — are eager to undo their work, and absolutely deny the celebration of any treaty or contract for the sale of lands.
