Nothing is more unreliable than Mexican
news. If from a French source, all is couleur
dt rose ; if from the Jiiarista, or partisans ol
President Juan z, no army of crusaderj, "belt
ed knights an' a' that," ever did such marvel
lous feats or performed such hemic deeds as
"the army of the republic and the constitu
tion." are doing or going to do when the inva
ders overtake them, and if o.tr news edmes
from the friends of Almonte everything goes
swimmingly for them, and their leader is to be
the savior of tbe nation. Most of our news
comes, I think, from French sources ; for we
bear of almost nothing but "upheavings" of
the people in favor of a new order of ihings
and the overthrow of President Juarez, whose
ause, we asv'old, is daily and hourly dwind
ling to the SSrst insignificant proportions. Yet
there is one fact well worthy of note, striking
ly incongrous with such report, and strongly
contradictory of much that we hear; so much
o that my confidence in French veracity has
been much shaken, lhat fact is, that Presi
dent Juariz has assembled the Congress of
the country's representatives, in which every
State has a voice; and that same Congress lias
given its unanimous support to Juarez, as may
be t -e.i from the address to the Mexican peo
ple, issued shortly after assembling a tran
slated copy of which I sent you in a former
letter. If this fact be not a testimony to the
popularity and ability of Juarez, then I am at
a loss to know what to think of it. This Con-
fress voted to prosecute the war against the
'rench with vigor, and furnish all the means
they can command. This, then, is necessarily
the vote of al! Mexico through her o8ic al or
gan, the Legislature, and is either the expres
aion of the teal sentiments of her people, or
Congress ceases to be a representative body.
If the French invasion be based on the preletca
or supposition lhat the Mexicans desire a
change of governmental systtm, Napoleon
ought to retire in presence of a tact which con
tradicts such an assertion in the most solemn
manner possible. That this is theeicuse, and I
t. sole excuse, is evident lrom the history of
the twelve months, or, more properly, stnee
the breach of tbe Solodad agreement, so well
told by Gen. Prioj m his long and, in ssme re
Spects, very able speech in the Spanish Cortev
Tr ! General shows plainly that the French
Kmperor has been duped by Almonte, wh mi
he thoroughly exposes and convicts of l u ! s -
hood. Js duped the proper express!' n ? I
use it with a charitable intention, for I am in
clined to believe a rumor which just now pre-
Taits in Paris that the French intend retiring
from Mexico. Be that as it may, let us see
what the late news from that unfortunate coun
try amounts to.
the vera Crutand ox Oecenfb'cT 13 says
that Ueneral Doblado marched from Guanaju
ato to unite his forces with those of Losada
and others occuping Gudalajara ; that he was
attacked and routed on the way, and commit
ted suicide to avoid falling prisoner. This
news comci by Way of Jalapa.
From the same source we learn ttiat there is
a serious misunderstanding between Generals
Ortega and Comonfort, and lhat desertions
from the Mexican garrison of Puebla are very
numerous, on account of the great scarcity of
money and provisions in that plsce. Also,
that a conspiracy had been discovered in the
brigade of General O'Horan, and that live ofli
Cers had been shot.
A French officer, M. Thoronse, has bought
five hundred more mules in Santiago de Cuba,
which are now on the way to Vera Crux, on
board the steamer Allier.
The English steamer Ossian brought u9 dates
the other day to the 3d inst. This vessel had
been freighted by the French Government to
take artillery to Vera Cruz, in order to arm a
Couple of war vessels which lisxl been-ceii vert
ed into transports. The news she brings is
contained in a letter to the Diaria de la Ma
rina, from which I extract the following:
The French forces are distributed as follows:
In San Angostin del Paltrfat', San Andros Chal
ehicomula and Orizaba, from eleven to eig' t
thousand men ; in Perote and los Vigas, a like
number. Marquez has his camp at this latier
point, with something less than one thousand
men. In Tampico not quite four thousand.
The forces which were in Tlacotalpan and Al
varado have evacuated those places. The re
mainder of the twenty-eight thousand that
compose the Freach expeditionary army is
made up by the garrison of Vera Cruz and
various small detachments in the neighborhood.
Reinforcements are expected by the end of this
month, which can be forwarded immediately
to the interior by the new railroad to Orizaba,
which, it is said, will be ready tor use by that
rime. Those rcrnforceuients are to consTst o?
two ifwisions of the Imperial Guard, of at lua:t
15,000 effective men.
If the above figures and localities be correct
ly given we may have some idea of the actual
position -of the French Army. As an offset,
we have similar data in regard to the Mexican
army, now concentrating at Puebla.
Ill Puebla, 25,000 regular troops and 10,000
volunteers. Between there ihd the capital are
two division, intended to serve as reinforce
ments or protect a retreat. This force is esti
mated at from 10,000 to 12,000: In the capital j
there are 1 2,000' more, among whom, however,
must be included the Home Guard. In Qucro
taro there is a division of eight thousand men,
and the contvngiT.t ftfotn tho State of Guerrero,
under Alvarez, amounts to twelve or fourteen
thousand. These figures gives as a tidal of
about eighty thousand men a sufficiently
powerful force, one might suppose, to drive hu
French out of the country ; but it must be re
membered that the Mexican troops are badly
fed lid worse armed.
Neatly the entire of the French Ttillery is
between Jalapa and I.os Vigtis.
Smallpox t a malignant type has n'sde its
appearance at Vera Crua, much to the conster
nation of the authorities, who contemplate
building a lazrette to protect the city ss much
as possible from the contagion spreading.
A letter from Orizaba, dated December 21.
Kays there is a repo t tint Juarez is to retire
from the Presidency, to be succeeded by cither
Ortega or Comonfort ; but thi re is no reliance
'Vi be placed on such a rumor, coming from
such a place. Tbe same letter announces the
arrival at Orizabn of a inassenger from Mejia,
and says tie look Vi 1,000 and twenty thou
sand muskets from General Doblado. The
writer sars the sum of money may be ex ig-
gerated, but that it will certainly reach S300,-

Our newspapers here for some days pa.'
have been filled vi'h the debates in the Cortes
of Spain on the Mexican Question, and Genera!
Prim's three days' speech figures largely, a a
ma"!ter of oiurie. I certainly admire the man
ly, straightforward manner in which he, details
the history of his connection with the invasion
of that country by ihe Allies in the spring of
last Vear. It is quite probable your European
exchanges will have furnished, if not with the
entire speech, at least with ample extracts;
yet in case what appears to me an interesting
point should bare escaped you, I will give a
few extracts, which may ttot be but of place in
this letter. After speaking of the surprise
caused him by the strange conduct of the
French commissioners at Soledad and theawk
ward position in which he consequently found
himself, he says:
Four solutions presented themselves to my
consideration ; first, to yield to the French
and follow their course ; second, to stand aside
and ask new instructions from the government ;
Bird, to oppose the French; and fodrth, ta
re-embark with mv trodps. Now, gen'Ieinan.
which solution wotild have best suited the per
sonal convenience of Gen. Prim ? Naturally
the first, since I would fight with a certainty
of conquering: and besides, once in Mexico,
the Queen would have rewarded me with a
third mark of distinction, just as the Emperor
of the French would have honored me with
the legion of honor and made me Duke of
Mexico ;.a;il on my return to Spain nobody
would avre disputed with me the embassy to
Paris. Such was the seductive picture which
my yielding to the French presented tt my
view ; but that CMild not have been done
without detriment to the good faith and loyalty
due my country, and therefore 1 did not hesi
tate to sacrifice niy pride, my friendship for
the Emperor and my dreams of glory on the
altar of my duty and the independence of my
Furthermore, I could not lose sight of the
compromise contracted by Spain with England,
and by the three Povers with the United
States, relative to the non imposition on the
Mexicans of a government they might not
desire ; and, since I speak of the United Slates,
permit me to say that they are a great people,
although it lias long been believed that they
are but a nation of shopkeepers. I believe
lhat Europe may now be convinced thai this
is not so, for I have been in the midst of one
of their aaaiiies that of the Potomac, com
mandedy Gen. McClellan composed of one
hundred and ten thousand Bien. with three
hundred pieces of artillery, and I can assure
you that it is the equal of any army whstso
ever. And let it not be supposed that the
struggle in which that nation is now involved
will leave it lifeless ; even should the Northern
and Southern States be separated, they will
ever remain two powerful peoples, lovers, one
as much as the other, of the Monroe doctrine."
The General closes his remarks on this por
tion of his sub ject by a specica of prophetic
warning to the French. After quoting several
examples from history, illustrating the i.n wil
lingness of any people to have a government
forced upon them, he says: "Such ig the his
tory, the sad history, of imposed monarchs ;
let the Archduke Maximilian keep it ever
present to him. The French WiH not possess
in Mexico more ground Irian they Actually
tread; and finally, sooner or later, will have
to abandon that country, leaving it rn a more
ruined condition than it was when they went
