HAVANA, JAN. i8, 1846. Dear Pic?I have just time, per Hope Howes, to drop you a few lines. I learn from an unimpeachabe source that Santa Anna is making preparations to return to Mexico. He anricipates leaving here on the 2th or 10th of next month in the British for steamer Vera Cruz. This will, however, <iepend much upon his advices to arrive per steamer on the 6th; but that he returns there, and that very shortly too, you I ma V Pol IT nnnn f F1 ~ ??U? ' ?j ^*jr vipwu. i ucic aiu uuiur (//tctus about him that I give for what they are worth. It is said that he is much exasperated at the design of a few traitors to sell the country to foreign powers, after the wasting of so much blood and treasure to achieve independence. His return to Mexico will be marked by an entire change in his policy. The United States, if her Minister is of the right stamp, will become his fidus Achutes ?for money he will adjust the Texan boundary and cede California, defending himself to his countrymen upon the plea that this was the only method left to preserve the integrity of the Republic, to resist the insidious attacks of Foreign Cabinets upon her liberties,to preserve them from a return to the Spanish yoke which they so nobly threw off, and to retain their position among the nations of the iL 1 1 euriu as an muepenacni power. Paredes must either side with the foreign powers or with Santa Ana. If he choose the latter, nothing can prevent the tyrant from talcing the reins?il the former, nothing can resist the grito that Santa Ana will raise for liberty. No one that is well informed on the subject believes that the people of Mexico will be content that their country share the fate of Greece. Every day we believe to e big with events in this distracted country, pregnant with interest to the United States. Yours trulj-, Auiel. From Pensacola.? The Lite Mexican News.?We yesterday received two letters from Pensacola, from our attentive correspondents at that place, dated on the 1st inst., which would go to confirm the reported revolution by Arista One of the letters has it, that Arista has a regular force of 4000 men at his command, which would probably be increased by volunteers, if he had any chaqce of success. The United States brio: Porpoise sailed from Pensacola for Vera Cruz, on the morning of the ist inst., with despatches for Mr. Slidell. All account* would have it, that, that gentleman was quietly waiting at Jalapa, the resuit of the different movements in Mexico. Our correspondent, "Marinous" says :? " INo mention is made of his having demanded his passports, or otherwise deported himself so as to compromise the suaviter in modo. for which he is celebrated, with the forlitcr in re which can, at any time, be resorted to when everything else has failed." All the vessels of war at Pensacola are said to be preparing, and will soon be off to sea. One of our letters says that Arista is represented to be more hostile than any Mexican officer against the United | States, and that he is determined to attempt the re-subjugation of Texas. Arista knows too much for this. He may make a noise about it, and pretend to have some such objcct in view, but he is not so Quixotic as to put his foot this sido the Rio Grande. from our regular files of papers, it would seem that it was known in the city of Mexico, as early as the 8th of r~? a i-_j .i--i j ^uuuaijf, Viiat UCll. A1IMU UUU UtXIdTCU against Paredes. He was in consequence removed from the command of the army of the North, and ordered to devolve it upon Gen. D. Romuio Diaz de la Vega, until the arrival of a successor. The papers speak as if Gen. Ampudia were likely to be his successor? the inhuman wretch who maltreated the remains of Gen. Sentmanat, and whose broken faith to the unfortunate Mier prisoners is on record.?Picayunc. A Spec of War.?Lieut. Wm. Smith, Dr. Gambrill and Midshipman Fillebrown, of the United States Navy, came hither on Sunday from Pensacola,on purpose of recruiting sailors for the Gulf squadron, now at Pensacola. A draft of seamen left this city yesterday mornt ing for the squadron. ' We presume this may be considered, in some sort, a confirmation of the rumor that the Government is about to deal more smmarily with the Mexicans. ti is said that important despatches were recently received at Washington from Mexico, and that the Senate had held several anxious secret sessions concerning them. The upshot of the mntter, we suppose, is that our government has determined to settle the Mexican difficulties as speedily as possible,and this re<v. ' ? .* * *'' ' v. inforcement of the Gulf Sqadron is pi paratory to that end. We hope it inay be so. All jusiifi ble forbearance has now been used this matter, and it would be a manifest tion of excessive weakness to permit tl chicanery and tricks of the Mexican a tholities longer to delay what is clear due from them to this governmei Doubtless, it is their object to defer a d cision on the matters now in dispute, u til it can be ascertained what the rest may be of our Orerron negotiations \vi England. If these produce hostihlu Mexico will be impracticable and i ally of Great Britain, for the injury our commerce and the harrassment Texas. The best way is to bring the to terms forthwith, and perhaps save tl annoyance of fighting the greatest E ropean power and the most imbeci American at the same time. This, v have no doubt, is the purpose of 3M Polk, as indicated by this remforceme of the Gulf squadron. Mobile Herald 0>th insl.
