A conductor on the New York and Erie Railroad states that during the past four da ju from twenty to twenty-flve thousand Fenians passed through Rome and Syracuse, New York State, bound East. They are rapidly concentrating somewhere in the neighborhood of Ogdensburg. Although very rough looking they are very reticent, and when questioned, give no Information beyond the romurk that they are railroad men looking for work. Prominent Fenians here, however. have been heard to say that the great work will soon commence at an unexpected point, and immediately spread over the whole Canadian border.

On ticcouot of difficulty wHh the Post Office Department, the Concord Railroad refuses to carry the mails any longer under the present arrangement, and mail teams, with fleet horses, will Immediately commence running between Concord, Manchester, Nashua, and Portsmouth. This difficulty is spreading all over New Eng land. All the Northern New England railroads are either refusing to carry the mails now, or else have notified the Government that they will only carry them thirty days longer. The difficulty is this the contracts for carrying the malls in New England and New York expired June 30, 1865, having been in force four years.

The published statement that a letter has been sent by Mr. Yslesias, Minister ot Finance of the Mexican Liberal Government, to Liberal chiefs in Mexico, in regard to the resignation of Presl dent Juarez, and cnllirg for a convention to invest Santa Anna with the powers ot Dictator of Mexico, is entirely false. Santa Anna has written a private letter to Scnor Romero, ex plaining bis views in reference to the war now waging In Mexico between the Liberal Govern ment and the Austrian despot, and giving as surances of his desire to support and fight for the Liberal Government against Maximilian, etc. But Senor Romero declines to have any intercourse in an official capacity with Santa Anna, and refers him to President Juarez, on the gTOund that Santa Anna has recognized the Empire, and by the luws of Mexico Is cousldcred a traitor, and liable to trial before a military court-martial on that charge. Santa .Anna's efforts to convince the loyal Mexicans tbat he is heart aud soul with them has failed. From San Francisco. San Francisco, June 3.

Defeat of tort Inns-Condition of Tarn pico 1'blhnshna Held by Jnares In anrreellon In St. DnmlSK'O Havana. June J. From Vera Cruz we have ne up to the 19th ultimo, aud it Is ratber Interesting. Cortina has been completely de feated by Olvera, who, leaving Matamora during Ue nisrht, marched to where Cortinas was encamped. The force of the latter was not great about 150 to 200 men, of whom 30 were killed and 60 made priso ncrs. Their leader lost his watch, coat, sword, and pocket-book, but siril w2s lucky enough to escape, nearly naked. on a horse without a saddle. One of his otfiiers, whom the Imperialist Journal styles "the Ame rican filibusteto of high rank," was killed, and afterwards hanged. This delcat was followed by another, in which Cort naslost 118 men made prisoners, rifled cannon, 69 hordes, aud a large quantity of s ores; also, over 50 ot bis men wete killed, many being Americans. So favorable an account is not given by tbe Imperialists as to the situation ot Tampico, in spite of the exertions of Colonel Lupin. While he was driving the Republicans before him, and arrived at Ciudad, Victoria, Gomez, the suc cessor of Garza, managed to escape, and has appeared at twenty leagues irom rarupico autu head ot 60 cavalry. One of his officers pene trated to Carocol, cistuut six leagues from fain pico, and completely destroyed tt. According to the fjtaette, the return of Lozada to Tepic, and the seizure of the arms on board the John Stephens, boa destroyed iu Sina- loa the bopes ot Maximilian s party. ?ive political prisoners, of whom threa were condemned to death and two to the chain-gang lor hie. have had their sentences commuted into banishment to Yucatan. Maximilian, it Is said, is protecting a lournev to Guadalajara. The authorities of T uxpan and Jungapeo have acknowledged the Empire, but are full of tear of the Republican bands which abound in their neigbDornoou. Teotttlan has been attacked by too tfermo'i- caus. The place was garrisoned by 52 Auotrtans, wno repeiiea toe assailants wiin a loiot wmuu. At Puerto Colorado an Austrian force, which was on its way from Orizaba, was roughly handled, and suffered heavy losses. Krom other parts come reports ot tne doings of the guerillas.
