From the N. O. Commercial Tim
Through the politeness of an
eminent, commercial house \v<*
have just been placed in possession
of the following MOST IMPORTANT
intelligence from Mexico. The
news was received by a British

By the arrival of the steamship MeKim,
we have received advices from the
Army to a very late date.
A rumor prevailed at Matamoros on the
13th that McCuUough's ranging company
had been surprised,defeated and made j
prisoners, bv some Mexican Ranche- i
ros under Carvajal. In relation to this
report a postscript to our correspondent's
latest letter says:?'' Une of MeCulJough's
men came in this morning and I
contradicts the rumor of the capturc of j
the company. He says they went to
China, and found about 170 Mexicans
there, but they fled from the town, and

and all that Yucatan now ? esires
is to obtain a certain and precise
guaranty from her that Yucatan
may hold in perpetuity these commercial
advantages. This ques

is as thoroughly Mexican at

an inmate, if we understood correct

suddenly ill and died. At the
death of this lady, it seems, a largo

hands of 12pes, as guardian of his
children, who were to be the heirs
of their deceased relative. During
the brief sickness of the lady,

istered a dose of medicine, or
something which ho professed
would give relief to her. The
dose had been given but a short
time, when she continued to grow
worse, and soon expired. Nothing
was thought, at the time of the
sudden death of the lady?her
friends not dieamimr lor a momont.
that she had been unfairly dealt
with. It is only since the developments
in the Muir case, that
suspicion has been excited towards
I'jpes, in regard to her death. It
has been only a i'cw years, too,
since a son of E.'s was killed, as
reported at the time of his death,
by the accidental discharge of his
gun, while he and his father, W.
Dandridge Epcs, were out hunting.
The account of young Epcs' death,
from the lips of his own father,
being so plausible at the time, no
one of course suspected foul play ;
but now it seems, that the son was
heir to some property which the
father wished to get in his own
possession. This circumstance,
taken in connection with others,
leave very little doubt that Epes
is the murderer of his own son.
Nor does this end the chapter of
his crimes ! lie is now suspected

to have gone to IS pes' house, ?o collect.
