Tuesday night, 8 express train hound WOsJ,

a cow between Toledo nnd Adrian, nbout
12 miles east of the latter place, throwing

Washington, May 11 -'-The Inst ititrlllg??nce
from tho city of MeVJ.co iS'-Vefy fnvornhlc?
to the success of tho Stlptc nio Government
in its struggle nguingt the reactionary
elements which have threatened its deslruc
lion, The time nnd nlace for a vc'volu'inn
Intd been fixed, and iu leaders fully
prepared ; but the movement met with n
complete discomfiture. Thursday, of Holy
Week, had been determined iipo> by the
Ecclosiafiiic.il party fnr a grand insurrection,
but it appeal * >imt the people had no ?>ymputhy

The Mexican Kxtraordinary, of the 15th
ult, says jthflt the people properly "appreciate
t,h? wise p.olicy which h?s undertaken
to eradicate, by a course of gradual reform,
that monstrous monopoly winch has weighed
nsn fatal incubus, for nflres, up<m the political
mid material prosperity of Mexico."
Comonfort's gov.ci nmenl appears now lo
be sufllcic ill) stable for lUe purpose of nofoliating
treaties with foreign governments,
and it is rob?l)ie ihiu our govuitimcnt will
nvilli usen very soon 01 me opportunity now
ofle'red'to obtain n reasonable and snlisfaolory
treaty for the adjustment of questions
pending between us nnd Mexico.
The parties to the English question have
agreed to submit the whole qupstion at issue
to tho decision of the Supreme Court of the
country, but England had, meanwhile, assumed
a decisive altitude, by despatching
several fr'gate's to Vera Cruz.
A Ir'tcr in llic Picayune from Mexico,
dated April 12th, expresses a doubt whether
tlig Forsyth treaties lift'l been sent back
to Mexico, and conjectures that Vu?*y are detained
hero till the press of* business in the
new administration shall so far cease as to
enable them to consider the subject.
It is true that the subject is to be fully j
considered and instructions in regard to n |
Uew treaty agreed upon. But the loan prq- !
po$ed by Mr. Forsyth's treaty is objected
toby tbe present administration, as it was
by tlic fast.
Great Britain bap, for a long time, held
unbounded sway over the affairs of Mexico,
controlling her commerce and her political
counsels for her own advantage. Now and
then she threatens force, and by. this means,
as well as by diplomatic bullying, Mexico is '
kept in constant terror of her. She baft a j
hftld upon Mexico, llrrottgh the unsatisfied
1 British debt convention; and, in thn meantime,.
\vld|c she presses the demand for the
four millions, she pxtorts from ihc country,
through her commercial monopolies, double I
that sum every year,

l advi<jcs from Nicaragua show that, th<: batlie
between the Commodores is still rnging

show that Vanderbilt will beat Lftw for the
irriatiiry of that portion of Central America.
| An attentive perusal of the papers and letters
received lately from these, shows some
curious thing*. A new paper has .'wen ;
.started at dan Joae. the capital of Oosla Hi- j
[ cn, ni\(,i another ni ttranndi, the old capital
