Very Important from Mexico ? Negotiation
for Peace.
The arrival of the Creole at New Orleans, from
Vera Cruz, has placed us in |K*taession of intelli
gence from that city to the 24th, and from the city of
Mexico to the 25th ult.
This intelligence is confirmatory of that received
at Washington a few days ago. There is an evi
dent desire on the part of Mexico to negotiate for a
l>eace with the United States.
|From the New Orleans Picayune, Nov. 9 ]
Among the passengers by the Creole are the wife aiul
daughter of the brave but unfortunate (Jen. Mejia. It
may be lecollected that lieu. M. wat shot near Puebla by
order of Santa Anna.
The general impression at YTera Cruz was, that all
(lilticulUes between the United States and Mexico were
in a lair way to be amioably settled. It may be that
Mexico may vet desire the interference of our govern
ment to help her eut of her difficulties with Krance, uud
perhaps with England : stranger things have occurred.
Ui Voz del Pueblo (an opposition journal of the city of
Mexico,) furnishes the foundation of the report that ne
gotiations were likely to be resumed between the Uni
ted States and Mexico. It states that in a secret session
of the two Chambers of Congress, on the 14th of October,
the Minister of Foreign Affairs communicated to them
that the Consul ot the t inted States, resident at Mexico,
had transmitted to him despatches from the Cabinet at
Washington, tho tenor of which was as follows: That, de
siring to avoid hostilities between two Republics which
ought to be firmly united by sympathy and a thousand
ties of mutual interest, the government at Washington
was disposed to submit the affair of Tezas to negotiation
? and that, in order to arrive at a determination of the
matter at once reasonable and honorable to both parties,
it would send an Envoy extraordinary, should the Mexi
can government lie disposed to receive him. The go- I
vernment of Mexico replied, that the relations between
the two countries being broken, it could not receive the
Knvoy in a public character, but would admit him as the
simple private bearer of the message in question, upon
the condition that, first of all, the United States govern- '
ment should withdraw its squadron from the waters of
Vera Cruz. The Minister added, that without prejudice
to these informal communications, the Mexican govern- I
ment would continue to take measures to protect the 1
(nation from a coupdt-main on the part of the United
Although these communications were declared rigor
ously secret, and to be kept perfectly inviolate, the edi- |
tor of /.? Voz assures us that he has obtained the fore
going from an excellent source (!) and adds?"Can we
not discover in this a hypocritical conspiracy ? Mexi
cans ! To what point are you content to endure 7" or,
as a school boy would say ?Queasyue tandem, ab-i
tere, <pc.
The master of the Creole reports that when he sailed
from Vera Cruz, the U. S. (squadron had taken its depar
ture. This may be deemed of significance, if the above
report be correct. That report, however, militates alto
gether with the repeated declarations made in the Union
as to the intentions of our government. It is not to he
denied, however, that the general impression here, since
the Mississippi arrived (and in Vera Cruz at last ac
counts) has neen, that an informal understanding exists
between the two governments that diplomatic relations
should^ be resumed.
El Siglo of the 16th confirms generally (he report of
its contemporary, and leaves hardly a doubt that some
one has obtained an expression of opinion from the Mex
ican Cabinet as to re-opening negotiations, whether he
was authorised to do so by tne cabinet at Washington,or
proceeded upon his own responsibility.
The Zemiwalteca of Jalapa announces the arrival there
on the evening of the 10th ult., ol the llaron Allevo de
Cyprey, the ex Minister of Krance, with his lamily, ac
companied by a strong escort. His Excellency, accord- !
ing to this authority, had been treated with the greatest j
respect, and without the slightest insult. We have no
accounts of the arrival of the Baron at Vera Cruz, (our 1
papers thence not being so late as from the capital,) but ;
as we learn verbally that the French vessels lying at Ve
ra Cruz had sailed before the Creole lelt, we presume
that his Excelleucy has taken his Anal leave of the He
public of Mexico.
D. San Juan Bautista, the Governor of Tabasco, in an
address to the inhabitants, dated the 2Ath of Septembor,
congratulates them upon the restoration of the empire of
the laws and constitutional order, which had been sus
pended since the 14th of June. This pacification was not
effected without shedding a good deal of blood. Gen
Bruno, in command of the garrison, resisted the Govern
or to the last; but having received an accession of volun
teers, the forces of the Governor, under Gen. Felai:z
attacked the insurgents, defeated them with some loss
and took Bruno ana all his stall' prisoners.
A letter has been received in Mexico from Havana,
which mentions that a young Spaniard named Gomez
had been arrested by the police, who had just arris ed
there from Mexico, commissioned by one whose name
is purposely omitted, with the intention of assassinating
Gen. Santa Anna. His case had already been trie i,
and, according to the letter, the criminal would be sen
tenced to the fortress of Ceuta, in Africa. Gen. Santa
Anna had expressed his perfect satisfaction with the ac
tivity, zeal and efficiency of the police.
There was a while ago a great to-do in Vera Cruz and
Mexico, because the commandant ol San Juan de Ulua
had sold two pieces of bronze artillery from the fortre-s.
The affair underwent an investigation,and it turned cut
that the commandant having found two guns mounted
which were not serviceable and were dangerous, and
there being no nationnl foundry wherein to make use of
the metal, he disposed of them in the best way he could,
and applied the proceeds to mounting other guns.
El Senor Couto, the Minister of Public instruction,
Justice, Sic., has been compelled by ill health to resign
his post, which has been filled by the appointment of L).
Demetrio Montes de Oca, delegate from Guanajuato.
The Mexican Congress was engaged on the '21st ult.,
with a law proposed by the Government?that the en
listment of "the defenders of independence and the laws"
should be enforced upon every citizen, from the day of
attaining his majority until the age of fifty. The same
day a proposition was introduced by several deputies,
that the prohibitory laws in regard to the admission ol
goods which come in com|>etition with any branch of
national industry should not be suspended before hear
ing the opinion of at least two-thirds of the Assemblies
ol the Departments.
The Minister of War had introduced a measure pro
viding for the free introduction of fire-arms and side-ai mi
into the Republic, in order that every citizen may pio
viile himself at the cheapest rate wilh the means of "de
fending the country and the national independence."
The attention of Congress appeared to be very much
occupied with the details of the tariff", the friends of
protection, as we should call it here, resisting an imme
diate alteration of the rates of duties promulgated upon
several specified articles.
Among the members elected to the next Senate of
Mexico, we note the names of Generals Buatamente, I
Almonte, 1'edraza, Cuevas, and others whose names era
familiar in the Uuited States.
The papers of Vera Cruz are clamorous for the Gov
eminent to proceed in the matter of the projected rail
road between that port and the capital. The tear is, that
unless the present opportunity of constructing the road
he embraced, foreign capitalists will not again he found
ready to embark in so extensive a project This rail
road is a thoroughly English design, and should be
watched in its progress.
Great complaints are made that the troops in San Jo in
de Ulua, and in the vicinity of Vera Cruz, ure greaily
suffering for want of clothing. The Government is
culled upon loudly to supply mouey, at least for the ne
cessaries of existence for the troops.
El Siglo XIX. and others, are sharply reminding the
Government, that the expedition against the California!,
which was authoaized six months ago, has not yet set
forth. When will it proceed ! they ask derisively.
The ravages ol the Indians in the Departments of l?u
rango, Zucatccas, and elsewhere, wore continued with
their wonted atrocities. A large number of people have
been murdered, and an immense amount of booty hue
been carried off' by them. The people, in their extremi
ty, call upon the General Government for aid, and it is
suggested and urged upon it that the militia of the De
partments should be organized to meet this particular
uml ever-recurring emergency. In the engagements
which have taken place, between the savages and tne
peoplo assembled to resist them, the former have been
uniformly successful. The people were in the last ex
tremity from fear. At last accounts the Indians were
witnin four leagues of Fresnillo (one of tho richest
mining towns in Mexico) and in tweoty of the capital of
Zacatecas. In Durango, two hundred Indians had pene
latcd in fifteen days to tho very heart of the Depait-,
tmrnt. More than five hundred persons had been killed,
thousands of horses and radio had hern driven off', anu
they were marching within fifteen leagues of lb# cupi- j
tal, laying waste, pluudoiing and murdering at their
No soon as Gen. Parades, at San Luis Totosi, heard of
these atrocities, he detached from bis forces a regiment
of cavalry to the aid of tho inhabitanta, and it ii supposed
thai the horrible icenes of carnage and plunder would i
thereby be atayed.
We nolo that President llerrera has been exercising

There is still grant trouble in relation to the Custom
llousc at Ma/atlan Tho Government is determined to
suppress the contraband liado there carried on; (he
smugglers are loth to yield. The Government is acting
with unusual enmgy jn the matter, and will probably
cairy the day lor a while.
Five of the Deputies of the Department of Yucatan,
having deemed themselves outraged by a publication in
one ot the papers, addressed to the Chambers a lettei. in
which they beg to be excused from any further exeri ise
of their functions. The Chamber unanimously votod not
to accede to their requeet.
There hare been serious difficulties io relation to the
election* in the Department ot Jalisco. The Govern
ment was thought to have interfered most injuriously to
prevent freedom of action. The t Jovernmont organ pub
lished an official vindication ol its course in the matter.
El Siglo XFX. comes out boldly and attacks the high
handed conduct of Col. Facio.in Ma/atlan, in preventing,
by his military authority, Mener Canedo Ironi pronoun

praises of the Federal system. Tho pretext of Col Facto,

voting orphan daughters of some deceased officer, the
ladies being allied to his lamily. The defence ol the I re
sident is conclusive, and his disinterestedness is shown

The above is from the Albany Argus of yester
day. There is one point in these figures that is
worth a notice. It appears that there are 539,673
legal voters in this State, and, yet, the highest vote
ever polled never reached 500,000 ; the highest, we
believe, was in 1W4, when 485,882 ballots were
thrown. It thus seems that, notwithstanding the
twaddle of politicians of frauds in elections, when
ever a large vote happens to be polled to the defeat
of either party, especially the whigs, there is very
little of any such thing. That there is a small
amount of corruption, and a few illegal votes given
at every election, there is no doubt. There is fraud
in this line, all over the world, wherever a suirrsge
exists, but it has never reached that extent that
many u politician would fain make the public be
lieve. We have always maintained lhat the full
vote in this country has never been thrown, and ull
census returns have confirmed this opinion of ours.

Kerrv Accident?Ingratitude.?A few evening*
ago, a man who was somewhat inebriated, fell into the
river from the ferry boat Olive Branch, while attempt
ing to leap on shore on tho Brooklyn side, before the
boat was moored. One of the deck hands very speedi
ly rescued tho poor fellow, whose only expression of
gratitude and thanks was as lollows:?" D?n you for a
scoundrel and blackguard-, 1 didn't care about] your
picking me up, but you ought to have saved mv hat.''
That genius ought to hare beon allowed the privilege of

Sunday Ktssisa Amusements.?Ate tavern in Myr
tle avenue, on Sunday evening last, some individuals
who claim to be respectable tradesmen, got into a
wrestling match, during which one of them had his leg
so seriously fractured, as almost certainly to cripple
him for life. In the same neighborhood, a swarm of
boys, whose parents culpably permit them to roam about
the streets, instead of sending them to Sabbath schools
or church, were smoking, yelling and acting otherwise
improperly, to the greats annoyance of the peaceable
" ' ol this portion of the city. Nothing
and orderly residents
but a rigid determination on the part of the Mayor to
suppress these nuisances, and an unflinching perform
ance of duty by the police, will correct this fast aug
menting and intolerable evil.
Chains on rur Kcaitr Boats.?On board the Olive
Brench.the chains intended to guard,passengers against
accident are so loosely and indiscreetly arranged that,
instead of being any protection to the careless ami un
wary, they will only serve to increase the number of
accidents, lor which this ferry is distinguished. They
are, in fact, man traps, over which the most cautious per
sons may, after dusli, stumble and be precipitated head
long into the river.
The Seduction Case.?The complaint against William
Stack, reported in yesterday's Herald, was investigated
yesterday before one of the Police Justices, who ordered
the ile fendant to enter into sureties in the sum of live
hundred dollars,-for the support of the child of which he
is the putative father ; at the same time requiring him
to pay fourteen dollars costs, and twenty dollars for the
expenses ol the anticipated accouchement of the unfortu
nate young girl who (had "loved not wisely, but too
well." The person who"
the defendant at court
o became bail for the appearance of

per week for the support of the illicit offspring until it

corner ot Pulton end Roemm streets, a very large rat,
pursued by a dog, made iti way into the bar room, and
not Amling n proper place wherein to secrete itself, crept
up the pantaloons legs of Mr. Collins, painter, of Kulton
street, who succeeded, after being much and painfully
lacerated, in killing it. The rat was afterwards taken
to Mr. John Simonson's butcher ihup, when it was
found to woigh'two pounds and Ave oanoes.

A poor young girl, not yet leventeen yean of age,
who, a few montns since, made a complaint against a
man who had (educed her, and placed her in a situation
by which she was likely to become a mother, consented

purpose of rescuing the villain from jail, and avoiding
the disgrace of being the parent of a bastard. Hince
then, the scoundrel has aboudoned her and her infant,
and a warrant was yesterday issued for his arrest.

Franklin, manufacturer of iron railing, who died sud
denly in a garret occupied by him at No. 3 Bridge street.
Mr. John Everett, at whose house the deceased had for
a short time lodged, testified that the poor fellow com
plained of sicknesi only a short time prior to hi* decease,
and expressed a desire to be sent to the hospital. But,
alas ! there was no such institution in Brooklyn, and
Mr. F,., therefore, sent for Dr. Garrison, who promptly
attended, and pronounced the patient to be beyond the
reach of medical aid. This prediction turned out to be
correct, for ho died shortly afterwards?as the jury de

Evening Session.
The < ourt sat at five o'clock, and a large crowd of per
sons were collected about the court room, from the fact
of its having been announced in one of evening papers,
that Judge Kdmonds had determined to discontinue the
trial. On entering the court, accompanied by General
Coombs, who took his seat upon the bench, his Honor re
marked to the reporters?with one of whom he had a
communication in the early part of day?that on recon
sideration he had changed his mind. The examination, in
the same form referred to above, was hereupon proceed

Joseph Jackson, cab-maker, of No 53d Pearl street
was sworn as an impartial juror.
Peremptorily challenged, Samuel Wright.
Of the large array upon the jury panel, a large amount
could not qualify, as they do not |>ossess the propeity
qualification. Several, in the course of the day, were
excused on the ground of not being obliged to serve mi
derthe provisions ol the exemption law. Some few, also
were set aside on the ground of entertaining conscien
tious scruples as to finding a verdict ot " guilty," where
death would be the penalty, in cases of muider.
John C. Donohue, sworn-I would not convict upon
circumstantial evidence, in consequence of the puni.-h
?Jtent; I cannot conceive a case from circumstantial evi
dence upon which I would convict; my scruples would
operate against me. [Sot aside.]
0. C. Bohek, sworn?I formed an impression from

what I had read; 1 believed it, from the circumstance of
pawning the watch
Crott-examintd.?There is now an impression upon
my mind, as to her connexion with this case; but I have
not formed an opinion as to her guilt or innocence; some
portions of the testimony, that I have read, established
some connexion between the prisoner and the murder,
and I believed that a murder was committed, and thit
aha had some connexion with it.
Counsel.?This come* exactly within the rule of law
Juror set aside.
Up to the hour of eight o'clock, some eighty-four w-re
set aside in rapid succession, upon the ground as to "for
mation of opinion, Jkc.," when there appeared to be b w
more then in attendance.
I The Court, hereupon, suggested the propriety of
withdrawing the record, in consequence of the difficulty
which; existed in relation to the procurement of an im
par.ial jury. Already had eight days been consumed,
and they were as yet but able to procure nine juror*.
The expense to the County was *135 per day, and it was
a fair question to consider, ought they to continue the
case in the County, when by withdrawing the record
and changing the venue, the trial could he procured be
fore an impartial jury, at a cost of about $100. before nor1

Counsel for Defence said-No doubt, any on*
would form an opinion that has seen such an inlamous
paper as that which published an article such as appenr

the court hereafter about it.

Court?I have to go to Kings and Richmond, and
elsewhere, in order to perform my duties. There is a
heavy arrear of business on tho calendars on my out cir- I
cuit, and prisoners are suffering in many cases for w?nt '
of a trial, and next week commences my circuit of Kim;*
Now, the question is, how much of my time is tone
wasted in this tort of way, at the expense and sacrifice of
I ail my other business. I think the prosecution ought to
withdraw the record and change the venue to another
Mr. Whiting.-Wa are only eight days here, your
Honor, and I underetand that you were occupied four
teen days in trying to procure a jury in the case of "big
Thunder. We have only, as yet, gone on with that
c'?" of persons in the county who have time and m;.ke
it their business to read; but there are many who never
read, ner have time to read newspapers : and I think
your Honor is mistaken in saying that in the event

Mr. Whiting having further insisted on the trial being
continued, 0
if both parties insist on my going on I
shall direct the Sheriff to summon 500 more for to-mor

her coueiel, the danger of proceeding in relation to
those prejudices that have exhibited themselves hero in

The Court hereupon ordered the Sheriff to summon
an additional 500, and the Court was adjourned to Id

pid, William Parkinson, and James Davis alias Collard,
on an indictment for grand larceny, in stealing $34,000
lrom the barge Clinton, on the 7th of April last. In thia

Price, hsqs., are associated with the District Attorney
on the part of the people, and Messrs. Griffin, James T.
Brady, Thos Warner, J. Benedict and James M. Smith,

In aecordance with a motion made by Mr. Benedict, it
was arranged for each of the accused to be tried sepa
rately, and that William Parkinson should first be placed
on trial.
Alter considerable delay in obtaining a jury, owing
to the great number of jurors being challenged by
counsel for defence, Mr. Prick proceeded to open tho
case on the part of tbe.'prosecution, describing the pro
perty stolen from the safe of the barge, a portion of
which property belonged to the Bank of Poughkeepsie,
a part to the Manufacturers Bank of Poughkeepsie, and
the remainder to different banks in this city. The pri
soner on trial, said Mr. Price, was a brother-in-law of
Honey mau, and had lived in a house in 51st street, and
that all the accused individuals enjoyed the privilege*
of the tenement, in which a portion of the property was
found. Also, that another portion of the money waa
found at another house occupied by Parkinson in Wood
bridge, N. J., and a third portion was likewise recovered
from a shop situated in William street, amounting in all

Bituminous Coal, Iron, Gold and Coppkk.
? Virginia is rich and lazy, and will not develope
her natural resources to the necessary extent. She em
ploys a negro to hoe tobacco and corn, to do each day
one half the labor that a white man does in New York.
If New England owned Virginia she would turn the
whole State bottom upwards to discover its contents.
Bituminous coal occurs at intervals over the tract of 35
miles from South Anna river, near its mouth, to the Ap
pomattox In some places the coal seam is forty-one feet
thick. It is found in abundance within fifteen miles of
Richmond, Henrico, in Chesterfield, in Goochland, in
Powhattan, on James river and on the Tuckahoe. At
Midlothian pit, in Chesterfield county, a shaft has been
sunk seven hundred and twenty feet below the surface
and a seam of fine coal has been penetrated eleven feet.
Iron is found in abundance in various parts of the State.
There are seven mines of it in Spottsylvania, near the
junction of the Rappahannock and Kapidan rivers. Of
gold mines, generally less valuable than iron, there are
twelve in Goochland, fifteen in Orange, eleven in Cul
pepper, twenty-six in Spottsylvania, ten in Stafford and
six in Kauquier. Total gold mines, eighty. There are
also five copper mines in Fauquier. The mineral re
sources of Virginia are truly extensive and valuable
But cut bono There is none willing to work them. Let
Virginia give up politics, call in the army of her sons in
the public service, and put a hoe and mining delver in
their hands; turn out the coal, build railroads with her
own iron, look out for copper, and Virginia lands will
not be sold for 25 cents per acre.
Hon. J. C. Calhoun.?The time of this distin
guished statesman was completely occupied, from
an early hour yesterday morning up to the period of his
departure for Memphis, on board the steamboat Maria.
During the fore part of the day Mr. Calhoun's reception
room at the St. Louis was crowded with gentlemen,
anxious for the pleasure of an introduction. From this
he went to the at Charles Hotel, where, at half past 3
o'clock, a splendid collation was given, and where the
honorable gentleman was introduced to hundreds of
our citizens Two of the sons of Mr. Calhoun, who ac
company him to Memphis, were present, and were hard
ly less lionized than their distinguished sire. Imme
diately after the banquet the honorable guest, previous
to some Well-timed remarks, gave the following toast,
which was received with with the loudest manifesta
tions of applause :?
The Valley of the Mississippi.?The greatest in the
world, take it all in all. Situated as it is, between the
two oceans, it will yet command the commerce of the
world, and that commerce may be centred in New Or
At |a few minutes before 6 o'clock, Mr. Calhoun, ac
companied by a large party of friends, and the delegates
of the Memphis Convention, proceeded to the steamboat.
We regret that we have not room for the many spirited
toasts drank at the St. Charles?sentiments apt and to
the point, and which drew forth the heartiest applause.?

We regret to learn that the wire of this Telegraph
has already been broken no less than three times : and
yesterday, we understand, a new species of depredation
developed itaelf, in the sawing down two or three posts
that support the wire. This last outrage was near Wil
liamsville, and the others, we believe, were all between
there and Lockpojt. What motive, says the Pilot, can
govern the actors in these deeds of destruction, we are at
a loss to determine; but such measures have been taken,
in'regard to them, as will materially endanger tho safety
of any future operation.?Buffalo Jldv., Nov. id.
The Great Land Case Decided.? In the case of
Jonathan M Reed vs. The Locks and Canal Com
pany, which has been on trial for some days, before the
United States Courts, Boston, Judge Woodbury, pre
siding, the verdict of the Jury was rendered Saturday
evening. The charge of Judge Woodbury occupied
about an hour in delivery, and all who heard it, speak of
its eminent ability and impartiality in the highest terms.
The counsel, who addressed the Court on Saturday,
were Mr. Webster for the defendants and Mr. Rogers lor
the plaintiff, and it is scarcely necessary to say, that
they performed their duty with their usual consummate
ability. The matter in uuestion, it will be remembered,
is a piece of land in the city of Lowell, which both
parties claimed under the same originals grantors, and
which the Locks and Canal Company have occupied foe
about SO years. The result turned principally npon the
point, that if the defendants did not have in fact a good
title to the land in question, by deed, yet they had by
continued occupancy and possession for some thirty
years. Consequently, tho verdict of the Jury, under the
charge, was in favor of the defendants. J. P. Rogers, P
i boats,aud (J. Parker were for the plaintiff. D. Webster,
8. Hoar and J. P. Robinson for the defendants.
