present under the occupancy of Gen. Dennis
Wallace where single gentlemen of color and

to be on fire. Owing to the pressure of business
at iltts es ahltshment, the director forgot to cause
tie chiu.ii■?, which was foul, to be cleansed.—
In preparing some rich soup it boiled over, and
theu.ict.ous liquid immediately ignited, which
earned the chimney to follow suit. 1 he sparks

Mexico._the New (Means Bee acknowledges
the receipt of Vera Cruz p.pers to the 29'h Sep
teu.b-r, containing intelligence from the City of
j Mexicc to the 21 ‘t of the same month.
The following letter has been received by the
(VVctor of the Port of New Orleans from the
I American Consul at \ era Cruz.
Consulate of the United States oj America, >
YeraCkwz, Sept. 27, 1833 $
<?1R_\ h**o lease to advise you, for the infor
mti .oof the merchants of your city and else
.n?re. that the Governor lor the State or v era
tr.,2 h,s issued his proclamation, directing the
an -i,sum of foreign corn io entry, at tli.a port,
i.r. il •: e end of the year. I am, very respect
ful v, sir, your most obedient servant.
J. James, Consul U. S. A.
We copy from the Bee the following summary
of Mexican intelligence:
The Cnolera had ceased its ravages in the city
of Mexico, but the mortality had been such that
toe exhalations from the ilead bodies bad coiiupl
ed he atmosphere, and it was anticipated that
that p- si would either recommence its ravages,
or hai u new plague would take its p*ace.
Th* political state of the country had under
gone but veiy little change. Arista and Dar in
were still at Guanahuato which.they had foittfiej:
*nd the president, St. Anna had not yet quitted
San Miguel del-Allende. On the 16 September,
the constitutional army were reviewed by him
and consisted then of 5000 infantry and 800 u*- |
airy, supplied with teu pieces of artillery. I he
arrival ut general Mejia with 600 infantry and
•fOOcavalrv was expected on the same day. The
division of Zitcatecas were on a march to form a
junction. General M"0 ey.uma was the s«de
co'umander that contemplated giving his soldiers
abide repose at San Louis de Potosi, intending
to join the president immediately afterwards.
An official communication from general N icto
ria military coimnandei at Puebla, to the minis
ter o| war, announces that an engagement had ta
ken place at Salitriilo, near the hacienda of r*a
hudpan, in which the rebels wishing to intercept
a cnnvuj from Tula, going to the army of the
president, were completely ilefeated and put to
tout. Iti consequence of this victory, the whole _
cuunlrv between ^ueratoroand Mexico has beeo
festured to tranquilitv, anti rid of the presence
of the lawless marauders that has infested it
The fort at Ocotes, situated at the envirousof
Toluaphan, had fallen into the power of the
federal troops.
The traitor Escalado, made prisoner by Santa
Anna had been put to trial, and will probably be
condemned to death.
II the statements of deserters is to be relied
°h, the pecuniary resources of Arista and Duran
hunt be very low, as the officers attached to
them have been without pay for the last quar
t*r; two dollars and a half is only given to each
' '■her. Notwithstanding the great danger
and the probability oF certain death when taken
prisoner, Arista ha* found enough leisure to
give himself up to the enjoyments of love, snd is
about to mary the widow of general Orero.
The curate of Anahualco, bishop of Guadala
jaca has determined to aid the insurrectional
movements; he goes about, accompanied with
the host throughout his parish, and declares that
religion will be annihilated if the attempts of the
wise Arista are not seconded. Among the blind,
those that have one eye are kings, and under the
influence of lanacticism, pious cheats aspire to
domineer and rules by debasing the roost ho
ly things to subserve their vile purposes. The
governor of the state of Jalisco had sent a squad
of soldiers to arrest this energumene; they had
succeeded In seizing him, and had dispersed some
of his attendants.
The citizens of Frederick, Maryland, have
taken measures, by means of a public meeting,
&c. to establish a Carpet Manufactory at that
place. It is proposed to invest 810,000 in the
establishment; the shares to be 820 each. The
carpetings manufactured by the Lowell Compa
ny are now considered equal to the best im
ported. The colors are fast and brilliant, and
the patterns beautiful. We are informed that
the importation of Kidderminster Carpetings
has decreased 30 per cent, at least, within the
last five years. This shows the advancement
of an important branch of American Manufac
tures. The consumption, of coruse, having much
increased during that tune.
A gentleman of great notoriety, and who once
possessed great wealth, is now and has been for
four months confined in our city jail upon a
debt of 880.000, and depend*' upon chanty foe
his subsistence. A part of the time, his only
subsistance has been the daily quart of soup tnr
nished bv the Humane Society. It a coinci
dence of some interest that his creditor, who is
a man of still greater notoriety, is confined upon
sundry greai debts in the next room of .the same
prison.—N- Y. Jour. Com.
