Correspondence oj the N. O. Picayune.
HAVANA, JAN. i8, 1846.
Dear Pic?I have just time, per
Hope Howes, to drop you a few lines.
I learn from an unimpeachabe source
that Santa Anna is making preparations
to return to Mexico. He anricipates
leaving here on the 2th or 10th of next
month in the British for steamer Vera
Cruz. This will, however, <iepend
much upon his advices to arrive per
steamer on the 6th; but that he returns
there, and that very shortly too, you I

about him that I give for what they are
worth. It is said that he is much exasperated
at the design of a few traitors to
sell the country to foreign powers, after
the wasting of so much blood and treasure
to achieve independence. His return
to Mexico will be marked by an
entire change in his policy. The United
States, if her Minister is of the right
stamp, will become his fidus Achutes
?for money he will adjust the Texan
boundary and cede California, defending
himself to his countrymen upon the plea
that this was the only method left to preserve
the integrity of the Republic, to resist
the insidious attacks of Foreign Cabinets
upon her liberties,to preserve them
from a return to the Spanish yoke which
they so nobly threw off, and to retain
their position among the nations of the
iL 1 1
euriu as an muepenacni power.
Paredes must either side with the foreign
powers or with Santa Ana. If he
choose the latter, nothing can prevent
the tyrant from talcing the reins?il the
former, nothing can resist the grito that
Santa Ana will raise for liberty. No
one that is well informed on the subject
believes that the people of Mexico will
be content that their country share the
fate of Greece.
Every day we believe to e big with
events in this distracted country, pregnant
with interest to the United States.
Yours trulj-, Auiel.
From Pensacola.? The Lite Mexican
News.?We yesterday received two
letters from Pensacola, from our attentive
correspondents at that place, dated
on the 1st inst., which would go to confirm
the reported revolution by Arista
One of the letters has it, that Arista has
a regular force of 4000 men at his command,
which would probably be increased
by volunteers, if he had any chaqce
The United States brio: Porpoise sailed
from Pensacola for Vera Cruz, on
the morning of the ist inst., with despatches
for Mr. Slidell. All account*
would have it, that, that gentleman was
quietly waiting at Jalapa, the resuit of
the different movements in Mexico.
Our correspondent, "Marinous" says :?
" INo mention is made of his having
demanded his passports, or otherwise
deported himself so as to compromise
the suaviter in modo. for which he is celebrated,
with the forlitcr in re which
can, at any time, be resorted to when
everything else has failed."
All the vessels of war at Pensacola
are said to be preparing, and will soon
be off to sea.
One of our letters says that Arista is
represented to be more hostile than any
Mexican officer against the United |
States, and that he is determined to attempt
the re-subjugation of Texas.
Arista knows too much for this. He
may make a noise about it, and pretend
to have some such objcct in view, but he
is not so Quixotic as to put his foot this
sido the Rio Grande.
from our regular files of papers, it
would seem that it was known in the
city of Mexico, as early as the 8th of

against Paredes. He was in consequence
removed from the command of
the army of the North, and ordered to
devolve it upon Gen. D. Romuio Diaz
de la Vega, until the arrival of a successor.
The papers speak as if Gen. Ampudia
were likely to be his successor?

remains of Gen. Sentmanat, and whose
broken faith to the unfortunate Mier prisoners

A Spec of War.?Lieut. Wm. Smith,
Dr. Gambrill and Midshipman Fillebrown,
of the United States Navy, came
hither on Sunday from Pensacola,on purpose
of recruiting sailors for the Gulf
squadron, now at Pensacola. A draft
of seamen left this city yesterday mornt
ing for the squadron.
' We presume this may be considered,
in some sort, a confirmation of the rumor
that the Government is about to
deal more smmarily with the Mexicans.
ti is said that important despatches were
recently received at Washington from
Mexico, and that the Senate had held
several anxious secret sessions concerning
them. The upshot of the mntter,
we suppose, is that our government has
determined to settle the Mexican difficulties
as speedily as possible,and this re<v.
' ? .* * *''
inforcement of the Gulf Sqadron is pi
paratory to that end.
We hope it inay be so. All jusiifi
ble forbearance has now been used
this matter, and it would be a manifest
tion of excessive weakness to permit tl
chicanery and tricks of the Mexican a
tholities longer to delay what is clear
due from them to this governmei
Doubtless, it is their object to defer a d
cision on the matters now in dispute, u
til it can be ascertained what the rest
may be of our Orerron negotiations \vi
England. If these produce hostihlu
Mexico will be impracticable and i
ally of Great Britain, for the injury
our commerce and the harrassment
Texas. The best way is to bring the
to terms forthwith, and perhaps save tl
annoyance of fighting the greatest E
ropean power and the most imbeci
American at the same time. This, v
have no doubt, is the purpose of 3M
Polk, as indicated by this remforceme
of the Gulf squadron.
