from an agent of an English firm in Saltillo,

marked on the 7th of July, which says,
"that all was doubt and uncertainty as to

has been received here by the British legation,
from Baokhead, the British minister in Mexico,

that contains highly important information as to
our relations with Mexico.
My informant says, that the facts and opinions

Mr. Bankbead says that, in compliance with

were acquitted, touch is not the case
Another writer in that valuable paper states
the facts to be as follows, which are strict
ly true. He says:
'Now, by referring to the records of the
Circuit Court of the United States for Vir

ces were not acquitted; the Court decided,
' on motion of counsel, that they had not
committed an overt act within the jurisdic

should give bond to appear before the Cir

The Grand Jury in Ohio found bills, but
there was a singular omission in the bond;
