S'kw Oru.ans, Aug. 27.?The news from
Mexico is highly important. The greatest
excitement prevails at Vera Cruz, both among
lie peopln and the authorities. It was expected
every moment that the. bombarilment
it' the city by the Spanish fleet would eomucncc.
Kverything within the city and the
forts were prepared for such an event. The
irtillerymeii wore at their posts, nnd th</garrison
umh r arms night and day to repel the

K'n descent on ( ul.a. f-'ucli a division, it
was thought, won 1,1 have the effcot speedily to
Jraw off the Spanish force from its threatening
position before Vera Cruz.
Thirty-four soldiers, forming the guard of
i eonducta, had perished for want of water.
The greatest scarcity of provisions prevailed
in Northern Mexico; the supplies of corn and
wheat were completely exhausted. The population
of the towns were compelled to enlist
:n* flee. Circnt dissatisfaction prevailed hi
The rumor was rife at Vera Cruz that ( Jen.
Miramax, regarding his cause us hopeless,
liad absconded. Large reinforcement of the
Liberal troops had been despatched from Tain

thought that an assault upon the capital would
take place at an curly day.
