General Orteg-a') Protest sg-Mlsist Pr wi den Jasiren. General Jesus Gonzales Ortepa. now In Wash into. , has juat published the folio wine protest against tbe decree of Beuor Benito Juarez, ap pointing himself lor a second term to the Pre sidency of tbe Mexican Republic: Protept of the citizen Jesus O. Ortega, President of We Supreme Court of Justice of the Mexican Mepublio, against the (Uorees issued by Dim Jlenito Juarez on the Sthdauof Aoeember, 18C5. The Impolitic and disgraceful act consum mated by Don Benito Juarez, in issuing, through jour official hands, the decrees of the 8th of Novenirrr last past, has placed me in the pain ful position of protesting in the name of the nation against tbe decrees issued by Benito Juarez on tbe 8th day of November, 1805:-1- First. Because ihey are against tbe express provisions of the political Constitution of the Republic, and as such they are necessarily arbitrary, illegal, and void. Second. Because they create a dictatorship, having at its head Bemto Juarez, who can, at his will, supersede one of the Federal cove ri'igns and independent authorities, whose func tions have been recognized by the vote of the nut ioi ; in this wise destroying a republican principle and the basis of loyal order, or, in other words, the form of government established by the Constitution. Third. Because they are in opposition to the powers delegated to the Executive by the National Congress, which to-day, notwithstand ing the existence of a war with France, de clared, while making the concessions con tained in the decree oi December 11, 1801, that tbe extraordinary powers just granted were to be exercised with a view of preserving the inde pendence and integrity of the nation tl territory, the form of government established by the Con stitution and laws of reform. Moreover, the law ot Ortober 27, 1862, Imposed a positive re striction upon the Executive forbidding him to violate anv of the provisions contained in title IV of the Constitution, which he has done. Fourth. Because the aforesaid decrees seri ously compromise the independence of the nation, robbing lis defenders lr jm their legiti mate Government, which alone can serve as a rallying point, and aulstituting to It an illegal usurpation, witn no more force in authority than that of the unconstitutional decrees now Usued. Fifth. Because the lone of the. decree i an insult to tbe Mexican people, hghting for princi ple under the constitutional banner; because, alo, it can be interred lrom the text that the blood licd by thousands ot patriots and martyrs had been shed lor Benito Juarez's sake, aud tli it without him tbe cue of Mexico would be hopeis6. Sixth. Because the sentiments set forth in these decrees are not only founded upon sophis try, but are downright calumnies, affecting me as an individual, and in my character of public officer. t, The obligations of the solemn oath, assumed by me as Constitutional President ot the Su preme Court of Justice, in accordance with the letter and spirit of the Constitution, have baeu so far observed by tne tu'thtully, and with a regard tor popular rights secured bv that instru ment; and 1 maintain that the nation, when in full possession of Us tight, must bold all public functionaries to the strictest account. Jesds G. Orteoa. To Don Sebastian Lekbq db Tejada. American Cnpllvea In Mexico History of tl Jonr derate Colonists. From the New Orleans Picayune, June 14. We learn trom Captain Cole, of Tennessee, who lelt Cordova on the first of June, that the recent captures of Confederate colonists were made on the old haciendas of Omialca and Tolique, about thirty miles from Cordova. They formerly belonged to the Church, and under the recent law "nationalizing dead property," were confiscated to the State; and such Maxi milian found tbem, and designated them as lands whereon the Confederate exiles might settle. Tbe captures were made on Tueslav morninc, the 15th of May, at daybreak. The following are the names of the captives: Captain J. C. Scott, Louisiana; A. J. Marshall, Louisiana; N. W. Lester, Louisiana; J. II. Scott, Louisiana; R. J. H. Bogen, Hinds county, Mississippi; R. Russell, Mississippi; Judge Snead, Texas; Costar, Snertd's son-in law, Texas; J. and William Foster, Texas; W. H. Dyer, Texas; William Elmer, Virginia; two Levys, Missouri, nephews of General Price; R. H. An derson, Alabama; J. H. Wright, Georgia; A. B. Hamilton. Tennessee; Capt. Bland, Missouri; Mr. Gibbs, Texas. The three last named were released at once. on account of their lanillies with them on tbe haciendas. They were compelled to leave and give parole not to return so long as a military post was established there. They were, how ever, allowed mules to carry off their household effects. The Omialca Plantation is situated on the Rio Blanco, thirty miles trom Cordova. It contains ten thousand acres of land. The Tolique Plan tation contains eleven thousand acres. Both are old coffee plantations, and belonged to the Church formerly, and were confiscated und"r the recent law. The Government therefore asahrned them to the Confederate colonists, who were rapidly fettling on them. Both plantations have six hundred coffee trees to the acre, and each tree will yield two to three pounds of coffee. This year's croD is excellent. Rosewood and mahogany are also abundant on the two planta tions. The R!o Blanco is navigable from El Dorado, on the Gull, up to the plantation of Omialca. by vessels ot considerable draft. General xorke has a valuable cotton and sugar Dlanta tiou lower down the valley, and will raise a large crop this year. It was contemplated this year to put a steamer on the Rio Blanco, under command oi tjaptain scott, tormerly or the B. I. Uodae,a the Red river trade. General Hind id an, of Arkansas, Judge Randolph, of lexas, ana captain scott, were about putting up a saw mill near the ruins ol Omialca. Cedar, mahoganv. and rosewood are the most valuable timber, and mahogany and rosewood are lound in abundance near Omialca, Cedar is not lound in abuiidansd till you go higher uu. On the 20th ot May, Captain Cole, of Tennessee, visited the Liberal camp under a Hag of truce, to inquire of tbe prisoners. He wag received very courteously, and teld that it was a military district, and tniit the Americans could not re tain the land. They said that Maximilian had no right lo give awav the land; that it belonged to the Liberal!, and that they were willing to distribute it among sympathizing Americans. They were well mounted, and soou after went into the interior, leaving a small garrison at Omialca. The prisoners were to be' taken to a strong place in the interior, and when Captain Cole arrived to inquire about tbem, they were already thirty leagues awav. Tbe officer in command told Captain Cole that he thought the old men would be released, but that youug men would be put In the Liberal army. Carlotta, where General Price is settled, is distant twenty miles from the old hacienda of Omialca, and no tear was there entertained of similar raiding party. Governor Harris, of Ten nessee, and ffmily; General Price, ot Missouri, and tamil ; Colonel Brown, of Kentuckv; Cip- tain rric. oi Missouri; uaptain Cage, Colonel More, of Missouri in all about twenty are at Carlotta. It is now only a mango grove, and General Price and Harris are budding the first and only house to be seen there. John Perkins, of Louisiana, Land Commis sioner at Cordova, was relieved ot his office May 1, and la now planting on the River Zapota.

The total number ot death in the city during the pnst week furnish the best po-sibln evidence ot the general health of the city. The death rate was remarkably low, and comprised 84 men, 6H women, 113 boys, and 98 girls 363 in all. Of these, 2 fl.ed of smallpox, 3 ot measles, 18 of scarlatina, 6 of diptheria, 3 of croup, 13 of typhus lever, 2 or typhoid lever, s oi cnoiura, t( oi cholera infantum, 1 of cholera morbus, 23 of other diarThoeal diseases, aud 17 of other con tagious maladies. There were 2 suicides, 23 deaths trom accident and negligence, aud 9 from starvation and privation. rnc deaths were didtriDutea among iue vari ous Wards in the lollowing proportion: First, 7; Second, 1; Third, lj Fourth, 9; Finn, 8; Sixth, 11; Seventh, 17; Eighth, 6; Ninth, 15; Tenth, 14; Eleventh, 29; Twelith, 20; Th rteen'.h, 9: Fourteenth, 10; Fitteenth, 10; Sixteenth, 21; Seventeenth, 31; Eighteenth, lti; Nineteen i, t7; Twentieth, 17; Twenty-nrst, a; iwentv second, 15.

The Mortuary Records for New York and Brooklyn during tbe past week exhibit unusnal evidences of genrrnl health in these clMes. Only 363 persons died In New York, and of these there were 71 ia Hospitals and public institu tions. Tbe total mortality in lirooklyn was 101, which would be equivalent to but 177 to the 1000 Inhabitants annually. The annual equiva lent for New York was 25'!i. but by excludiug the list of deaths in public institutions, as Brook lyn necessarily does so far as the Kings county institutions are concerned, the mortality in our city l89t week fell below a death rate of 21 in 1000 annually. This statement Is male for the purpose of comparing it wiMi previous records and with the latest reports from other cities. The last week's mortality was less than that ot tbe previous week by 30, aud lccs tbau our nit? nest report in April by 109. Compared wi'h the records ot tbe past three years, the decrease is 47, 87, and 43 respectively. During the last week in May this year London had a mortality ot 26 in 1000 (annual death rate) ; Edinburgh, 27; Liverpool, 40; Sheffield, 37: Glasgow, 29; and in Vienna, during the third week in May, the rate was 37 in 1000 inhabitants. The consolidated report gives ample proot fiat no epidemic is prevailing. Scarlatiua caued 13 deaths, and typhus tever 13, of which two were in the Fourth, and 2 in the Sixteenth Ward, the remaining 11 being in tbe tever hospitals on Ward's aud Black well's Islands. Dally returns will hereatter be made Irnm these institutions of all tever patients received from the city, touether with the street and house in which they sickened and from which they were sent to the hospital. The same kind of inlormation concerning small pox will also be given daily. The local history ol diarrheal diseases throughout the city is being traced in like manner, by means of daily returns irom tbe Dispensaries. During the past week th-re was an increase ot deaths irom zymotic diseases the increase being eighteen in diarrheal maladies alone. The con ditions under wbich this increase occurs have elicited some attention, and with the exception nf six cases registered as cholera, the thirty-six deaths in this list of diseases are clearly attri butable to local exciting causes. They do not ptove tbat there Is any epidemic cause of cnolera generally diffused in the city. The cases thus far occur singly. The atmospheric conditions that prevailed during the week were remarkable. Excessive humidity a mean of83$, saturation beinst 100 continued tor two successive days, aud coex isted with an average temperature ot 70 degrees. Tbe mortality of tnfauts increase 1 but slightly. In Done of the wards was there any noticenble vuriation from the usual ratio of deaths. FATAL RESULT OF THE MDLBEttRT-BTREET CHO LERA CASE. George Simpson, reported above as ick with ctiolera, died last night nt 10 o'clock. Dr. James J. Purceil telegraphed the fact at once to the headquarters ot the Board ot Health, asking at the same time t'r.r disinfectants to be used upon the premises. No other case has yet been re ported lrom any authentic source. New York Irioune, The Emperor Napoleon being at the races, Isabella, the flower girl of the Jockey Club, ven tured to present to him a very beautiful rose. With a bow aud a smile he took the blushing flower from the blushing eirl, aud placed it in his button-hole. But the Emperor is not accus tomed to receive favors without recompense, aud his hand immediately sought his pocket. This is the strangest part of the story not that the Emperor had pockets, but that in them he had not a single sou. His purse had been forgotten.

It strikingly illustrates the view taken thero in well-mtorined derman quarters that a Continental war would lead to a hoarding ot United States gold-bearing bond, iu preierence to th old-fashioned hoarding of gold in lonls d'ors and ducats, wbich any regimental commander mleht press from tne holders by forced loans or requiitioni. A thousand ducats oan be divided up to pay a regiment of a thousand men, but a thousand dollar bond cannot bo used in tbat wav, and besides, It can be more easily secreted. 1 herelore, look for a hoarding ol Five-twenty bonds bv tbe landowners and peasantry of the Continent, and tor a strong investment demand by the unlor tunate Englishmen who have saved something out of the wreck ot tbe numerous burnt-up 'Limited Corporations.' But to tne parage. It is as fol 'ow : " 'A great Investment d'mandfor Five twenties Is now setting in Irom the peasantry and that elass ot neople, especially since the war looks inevitable. 1 hey consider the stock, and probab y justly so, the rarest thing to hold in suoa a crisis.
