All is qrilet in f atalInoros. and things go on
sntottlhe o'ider the .lheral ru!e. Busiless is ree
sou.ed, the city iolhs lively, and many famnllie l
that ub1d to IBowesvile in their alarl, are reltrn
oing. Carava'al and Garza both have issued pro- 1
i clamatioos. assuring tie people of their kind in
tentions and their detetnnnation to preserve law A
and order. Esneoiedo is now in Matamoros with k
i the rest: -ut as he has issued no orders or pro- i
elnamations, I presume he waived all pretentionsto 1
comnmand of the city in favor ot hii su0ori0
officer, (Caravoaja, nutw ithstauding Mejiaos o hlpoit
tion agailst the jotter.
tlthe irst thig the Liberals did in the way of au- i
thority after entering Matamoros was to levy a I,
forced loan of sixty thousand dollars, to pay the a
cost of the removal of MItjia and his followers, tl
and other expenses incident to the change of gov- a
ernment. I
The next thing was a demand made upon tlo'
t chief priest tor the keys of the Cathedral.. Ii is
reverence refused, and stoutly maintained his re
t fusal. Thereupon he and all the other priests, six
Sor eight in number, were thrown into prison. I
d Yesterdty morning, however, they consented to o
d give up the keys, and to sign a document pledging
themselves never in any manner to use their in.
tluence against the republican government o
Mexico. Upon this they were released; and ca0me t
d over to Brownsville, a very melancholy looiking h
tt crowd indeed. Their being Frenchmen madett r
c them particularly obnoxious to the Liberals. The t
church is yet closed, but will probably soon le a
t opened by some of the Mexican priesthood who t
were expelled from it In a former revolution to t
1g make way for the French priests.
Matamoros is full of news favorable to the
Liberal cause. One report is, that the Imperial
s, troopshave evacuated Monterey. Another, that
,g Tampico has been beseiged and captured by the
y Liberals. And yet another, that 'era Cruz wast
or or was about, to be beseiged by a heavy force oat I
t Liberals. t
o. General Caravajal says he expects by his
e, pacifiatory policy to overnome the dislio e
in which he is held by the Matamoriaos, ome 'hat
rs in three months time he expects to have an y
g. of 30,000 men on this border.
te There are over 300 troops in 'Matamoros now ;
oe and as the city is well fortified, and they captured
ef eight guns from the wagon train and some thirty
ed or forty more on the fortiflcations, they can wtaoe
os, a stout resistance and hold the city against any
od opposition that might come.
in Where Canales went or what he is up to, I can
oe- not tell. Cortina has not been heard of in a loig
on time. 0. G.
Te BAGDAD, Mexico, June 30, 1866.
ed Those of your readers who may be in the habit
;e. of looking for my letters, are entitled to some ex
planation regarding my apparent remissness, it
on not furnishiug earlier accounts of the late import
on ant events on the leo Grande.
ny. It was altogether owing to the impossibility of
er- knowing wioen the steamersleaoe. The steamship
eg Crescent, i was positively iaformed, would leave
stm on Mondny, 17th inst., yet she remained a day
le, longer, and was thus enabled to take out the first
he news of the battle near Canmargo, without my
es, knowledge at the time.
The next steamer to leave was the Admiral
en. Foote, advertised to depart on Wednesday, the
ost 20th. 1 closed and mailed my reports up to that
ty, date, and was then informed that the departure of
pit. the Footewas indefnitely postponed. 1 then made
out a reportdaily, until I was informed that the
jia, steamer would not leave till Tuesday, the 25th, or
de- next day. I next went to work and condensed all
he my previous reports into one, and when I took the
bly, letter to the postoffice on Monday morning, I found
or that the steamer had suddenly left Brazos that
morning. The postmaster the evening before re
ing ceiced a dispatch, giving him about ten minutes
ing time to close his mail and send it down in a govern
rez meet ambulance. Thus my labors were left dead
ate on my hands, asto any freshness they might con
tain for the readers of the Chesce.r. I need not
rza., sa how very much all this vexed me.
the The places where I am in the habit of inquiring
ain about the steamers' departures, are the express
with office, the postoefice, the quartermaster's office,
r on , nd,as i the case of the Fonte, the agent's office,
IHe all in Brownsville. All these places were at fault
ond in their information about the Foote. Others be
one sides myself were fooled, including pasen
as a gers who want down to Brazos too late. What
caused this abrupt departure I have not been able
gain to ascertain,
with Hereaf'.r I shall not depend spon any

nand when I get news, will jot, it down and mail it imme

r The moon does not change oftener, nor its phases
succeed each other more rapidly than new fashions I
appear, and old ones are altered. The bonnet
which was only a triangular piece coming down on
each side over the ears and stopping at the water
fall, has been replaced by a little piece of illu
e lion (and it is an illusion, for it approaches as
s near to nothing as possible) or lace and flowers,
s resting lightly on the top of the head-a mere
d apology for a hat and seemingly only tolerated
o because it is a sort of necessity to have something.
Looped dresses are undergoing a variation, or
d indeed are vauishling from the world of fashion, to
be replaced by a skirt cut very short in front, and
, very long behind. Summer's sudden appearance
is bringing out thin fabrics, and white lace veils are
beginning to be seen, especially in the carriageson
d the drives. Htigh topped hoots are not yet obso
lete, but hoop skirts are growing beautifully less.
d About a week since the weather suddenly

mt strong hand of power, dispersed the representa
