We have received from a friend in Mexico, the copy of the following deeply interesting letter from Lt, M. F. Maury to a gentleman in this country. The details of the manner of proceeding to obtain homes in that coun try, and 'the minute directions to persons de- airing to emigrate thither will prove accept' able. Those perrons who have gone from this and settled in that country, are over run with letters of inquiry, all of which they find it impossible to answer. This letter from Lt. Maury will satisfy the great de- mind fcr information upon the subject in this section. ft fuck Colonization- Sis Jcin'dk Lhtkbak, Mexico, :iro. - , . . . t.eoruary ill), ljititt. My Dkar Sin : I have received your let ter. enmiirimr like manv others about Mex ico, with the view of making it their home. You know its ceocranhical features, and the fame of its mineral wealth. Its soil is of un surpassed fertility, and its climate, after you begin to ascend the table lands, is as delight ful and healthy as the heart of man can de sire. The Emperor is rulinjr wisely and mildly, Their Majesties are beloved by the Imperi alists and respected bv all. lliey move as freely amouc the people as the President of tho United States ever did in days of yore, The Empire is continually Raining ground, Enterprise is abroad many works of in ternal improvement are already under way, and about to be commenced. Capital is leaving its hiding plaw, and the columns of the newspaper press are daily, and for months have been, filled with the names of Liberals, who, looking upon the Empire as a success, and their cause as a failure, have laid down their arms and are giving in their adhesion. Property and life are daily be coming more secure. As an illustration the doors of the house in which I live are with out locks ; nor do I ever take care even to shut any of them before I go to bed. True there is a porlcro below, but the building is an old convent inhabited and frequented by hundreds of people who are not barred from each other by any fastenings. The impres sions abroad about .Mexico are very errone- us. With regard to the inquiries in behalf of our friends who desire to emio to tuts lovely land, I have to say: They can find desirable locations in any climate they please, and suitable lor the cul tivation of anv staple they prefer, or the raisiuir of any kind of stock. As to the must profitable branch of agri cultural industry, that varies with tho local ity; the variation depending as well upon the convenience and circumstances of the market as upon geographical conditions. Owing to the want of roads, navigable rivers, and canals, internal transportatin is tedious and expensive, and exportation difficult. Hence in one part of the Empire, the specta cle has not been nnfrequcntly presented, of brcadstuns at famine prices, while in a neighboring Department they were wast iiiK for want of consumers. Tho most desirable location therefore for immigrants who arc "well to do," (and this is the class that must lead the way) arc on what may be called the intertropical belt of Mex ico, within which Cordova and Jalapa are situated. I Ins is a sort ot steppe or slope which rises from the low lands of the coast to tho various climates, which arc to be found in all intertropical latitudes, at the height of from 2,000 to -1,000 feet above the jsea. U limn tins range tnc climates arc those of perpetual Himmcr thev are healthy and delightful. Ihcsc steppes encircle the J'.mpire on the cast, south, and west. Thev overlook the vallcv of the CoaUacoalcos and the Gulf of of Mexico on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other, nnd abound in garden spots as beautiful as P.dcn itself, and as sin fill too. Cordova and Jalapa are such places they are in sight of the sea. The farmer there, and at many other places, may reap from the same field two or three crops annually, with an increase of three or four hundred fold upon the seed sown. In the course of the present year a rail way is to be completed from each of these points to Vera Gmr, winch will bring them fairly within the domains of foreign com merce. (Joni, cotton, coiiee, sugar and to bacco all do well here, but as a rule. I con sider co flee, cotton, and tobacco the most profitable staples of cultivation, because they can best bear transportation and stand competition in foreign markets, formerly, and before the country began to be tossed and vexed by revolution, lands in the neigh borhood of these two cities were valued at from $75 to $100 per acre. Many of these splendid Haciendas, some of them large enough to accommodate with cleirant farms ten times fifty families, were broken up during tho revolutions, and their owners compelled to seek safety elsewhere. mi , .. . .. incy nave iauen into ruin and decay turough absenteeism, and now that order is restored, the Empire gaining ground and internal improvements encouraged by the wise policy of the Emperor, these lands arc coming into demand. But present owners find themselves too poor to repair and bring them under culti vation again. They are for sale, and may bo bought at from $2 to' $3 per acre. Thche abandoned Haciendas (and they arc to be found in all parts of the Empire) arc the places for your thrifty American farm ers to establish themselves. Let them, there fore, send out their head mcntoselecta place for the whole settlement, to bo followed immediately by their young men to sow, build and repair, and make ready for the old men, the women, and the children, and others to follow by the time the lands arc ready. They will find it, at first, best to establish themselves in villages as well for mutual convenience, as for protection against tho bands of lawless marauders who are ever ready to pounce upon the helpless 'farmer. Immigrants should bring with them such mechanics as arc required to satisfy their own wants and necessities. Tell those who come, to count upon all the assistance, every facility, and the lcst information that it is in my power to afibrd, or within the province of this office to givt In the Northern departments the vine flourishes well and the wine is excellent. On the slopes next tho sea cochineal and i.Tdigo are cultivated, drugs, gums, and spices collected. Tho most profitable stock raising, are mules, horses and goats. There is room for profitable imjrovcment in the breed of horses, cattle and sheep. The immigrant is allowed free exercise of religious worship. It is guaranteed to him both by an ordinance of the Empire, and a dispensation of the Pope. He is also entitled on entering the coun try, to a free duly iermit, for all of his cattle and eflecU and exemption from all taxation for one year, and from military conscription for five years. He is allow ed to bring in his arms also, and with his neighbors to form or sedentary, militia, for heir own defense apainit robbers who arc daily becoming less bold. But he mar not bring in anything for sale, exchange, or barter, witlnut the jiayment of full duties. In the rural districts, the Indians gen erally ari honest; indeed in some parts of the country, theftj among them is unknown. They are a gentle and docik race. Simple in their habits, they are superstitious, enter ing zealously into all the festivities and ceifmonies of the church. They seem not to care to cam more than a dollar or two a week, and when thev have done this, whether by two or three davs of labor, they generally stop work and frolic till the money is gone, when they are ready to earn by labor in the field the next instalment. The sabUlh is not much ob served by them, or the Mexican generally, except as a day of parade and pleasure. As DAILY a rule their wages are paid weekly in cash, and at the rate, generally, of from twenty five to fifty cents a day, the laborer finding himsel Silver is the principal circulating me dium ; there are a,lso gold and copper coins, but no bank notes. The implements of husbandry are gener ally rnde, and agriculture is by no means in a high state of improvement. Nevertheless, the Indian and the mixed classes, of whom there are about iteven millions, are skilful laborers in their way. This mode of hus bandry is so much the better for the display by the European or American farmer, of his exquisite skill and of the virtues of his im proved implements, which last lie can bring in duty free. It is not advisable, at present, for immi grants without money to come to Mexico, unless they come under the auspices of some friend who can assist them, or under the care of some one of the varipus companies for establishing colonies tliat have been re cently incorporated. Some of these propose to bring the immigrants into the country, to furnish them with land, to establish them on their farms, to subsist them for awhile, and to receive a certain portion of their crops for the loans advanced for these various services. Many( who have some means, and desireto come in companies to Mexico, and establish themselves on some of these line but aban doned haciendas, wish to know where these haciendas are, and their price, -dns; In almost every part, and at any price from a few cents to a lew dollars per acre. Of course, the prices named to me, though moderate, arc the asking prices. It is best for every such company of immigrants to send some of their number ahead to select a place, and bargain for it themselves. Bryant, from Arkansas, has established a colony in Chihuahua : Mitchell, of Missouri, another on the Rio Verde, in the department of ,San Louis Potosi ; Terry, of Texxs, another in Jalisco. They, rent at first, with the priv elege of purchase in the meantime at a stated price. Then there is the line colony of Carlotta. near Cordova, where the lands were abandon ed. There was a number of haciendas in that neighborhood that Were indebted for more than they were worth to the "church, nd which by the Juarez Government were con fiscated. These have been cxappropriated by the Empire, and annlied to colonization. These lands are sold to ingnigrants at one dollar per acre m live equal annual instalments. Generals Price and Shelby, of Missouri ; Governor Harris, of Tennessee ; Judge Per kins, of Louisiana; Eev. Mr. Holnian, of Missouri, and a number of others, have al ready established themselves there. Thev arc all highly pleased with their prospects. JJy the time the railway through to Vera Cruz is completed, and the lxst instalment falls due, they will have improved their farms, when the most staid among them ex pect that their farms will be worth ten, j I mm twenty, anu even uity dollars per acre. iV gentleman lrom .Louisiana has been there for seven or eight years. He estab lished a coffee plantation of eighty acres, which is now in good bearing, and the crops from which last year , were valued at $10,000. The Cordova coffee sells in the New York market as Java, and the tobacco equals that of Cuba, while the sugar has fourteen per cent, more of saccharine matter than that of Cuba. It will cost at the rate of some five or six dollars the acre to clear, enclose and bring these landa under cultivation. Hence it will be so much cheaper for those who have a little money, to buy a hacienda, with ground already cleared, fences made, and houses, or at least,-walls of houses, already erected. All the lar.ds of this colony are already, or soon will be, taken up. Eaeh married man there is allowed 040 acres, but it is now generally admitted that one-fourth of that quantity will probably be quite as much as one family will be able to cultivate, it is so fertile and wonderfully productive. But to imigrantswith a little capital, the speedy filling up of this colony should not be dis heartening, under the idea that there are no more good lands and choice spots. There are better lands than these both about Cordova and Jalapa, which the present owners, not being able to work, are ready to sell on favorable terms. Agents have been estab lished at various convenient paints to assist immigrants on their arrival in the country. by giving them information and furnishing them with the necessary certificates and passports to enable thein to pass the custom houses, and to enjoy all the rinhts privileges and exemptions o the Emperors Decree. It has not been as ye t practicable to establish agencies on the Jiio Grande, but as soon as it may be, one will be stationed at PresidioTJel Norte. At present the following agencies have been es tablished, viz: i.. P. Oropesa, at Vera Cruz. Jno. Perkins, formerly of Louisiana, at Cordova. Jno. T. Lux, formerly of Louisiana, at Monterey. iVIonzo ltidlev, formerly ol Gahlornia, at Mazatlan. Captain of Port of Tampico, at Tampico. Captain of Port of San Bias, at San Bias. Captain of Port of Matamoras, at Mata- inoras. Mr. Ramon de la Vega, Presidente de la Junta de Mcyoras de Colima, at Manzanillo. I am about to embark for England, ex pecting to return to this beautiful land ac companied by my family. The office is left in charge of my son, R. S. Maury, who dur ing my absence will attend to the business of the office. He is earnest in the cause and has now in hand a gnide-bo6k for immi grants, which will ,smMUc ready for the press. The rainy seasipBmmcnces in June and ends in October"," "Immigrants should not come during that time. Ihere are many inquiries made also, in regard to religious liberty in Mexico. Per- lect lreedom of worship is guaranteed by the Organic law of the Empire and sanctioned by tho Pope. 1 have just returned lrom the 1'alace, where I had a long and interesting interview with the Emperor. I read him your ques tions: we discussed them seriatim; and he gave his answers to tnem, one by one. l repeat your questions and give his answers : 1st. "Will protcstant clergymen be tol erated and permitted to enjoy their religions opinions and worship, in these colonics without molestation " "Yes, and encouraged." 2d. "Can a support be provided for such clergymen ?" " es, as soon as I get my finances in a better condition." 3d. "Will they be sustained in the cstah- lishmentof protcstant schools and colleges?" "ICS." 4th. "Would a protcstant bishop be al lowed among them ?" ocnai n i y.' w. fill,,! S, . , ., otn. "mu me uovernment, uo anytning towards the support of the schools and col leges?" "Yes." 6th. "Could endowments of land, or oth erwise, now be made for their support ?" " Ye, by lands and voluntary contribu tions noic and money from the Government afterward." th. Would itbepossihle, for thepresent, to engraft on the University of Mexico a de partment in which the studies, lectures, and instruction in general should be in the Eiq- hsh language? I he question suggests a capital idea: I will converse further with utwn that point. I desire to ace communities of differ ent religious persuasions .established in the country, and to give encouragement to all, for they act and react upon each other with wholesome effect." I have quoted as nearlv, as, after the in terval of an hour, I can remember, the words used by this remarkably clear-headed aud business like sovereign. There is a clergyman, the Rev. Mr. Hol- man, in the colony of Carlotta, near Cordova. He is the only preacher, except the Rev. fr i;ii,n i rti.n,i:.i t: .it. , .viuuuia Ul tile .IWU 1 CIUC colony, that I have yet heard of among tho settlers. In the city of Mexico, there is a lanre er of English and American residenta who are anxious to engage the services of an Episcopal clergyman, who can minister unto them in " mother tongue." They meet at houses of one another, o' Sundays, when the services of the church and a sermon are read. I attended service in a sort nf "nnner loft" or retired room, such as we may im agine the early christians met together ii and in which the congregation were all Mexicans. There were not more than a dozen or two, but enough apparently to re present all classes of society. 1 no services, were DeHormed in rW!, with the prayer book in that lanraacc.

So you observe, my dear sirr even here in Mexico, a field and a harvest, mncn room for and a great lack of laborers; Comelto us. W hnvi accounts now ol some six or eight hundred emigrants with their families, who are on their way thence, and who are preparing to come hither. I had an offer this morning of lands for colonization, on the" north bank of Panuco river. They commencobout thirty miles west of iampico and extend up to the table land. The tract includes several hundred square leagues. It is in what is known here as the Huasteca country, decidedly one of the hnest regions ot the whole ismpire. Die ownera Mexican, is very anxious for our people to establish themselves upon these lands, and has requested me to tell him-how to get them there: " Give the alternate sections with a pre-emption right to the rest at 512 per acre. i ll do it," said he, and give tne lands for irada and villages besides." IIo lias now gone to reduce the offer to writing. The river is navigable, and the country there has been fqr years, nnd until recently, in a disorderly and unsafe state. A few months ago, however, the people there gave in ineir auncsion 10 me empire, ana every thing now is as orderly and as quiet as could be desired. A party of surveyors went out yesterday from the Landofficc to survey a fine body of public lands in Millatoynca, one or the sub districts of Tamaulipas.

Grant's staff) was accidentally killed on the railroad in going in company with his Gen eral from West Point to New York. Hi3 remains were carried back to West Point and interred, with proper honors, on Thursday last. From the mournful scenes of that oc casion we give the following, as of general interest. It will be observed that rij? me mentos of the late war were present, and lhat reference is made to the memories clus tering around the chapel in which the cer emony was performed, well calculated to re voko the spirit of peace and amity: " At 1 o'clock the procession formed in the quadrangle of the chapel for the purpose of listening to the funeral services. The pall bearers were as follows : General Nichols, General Vincent, Lieutenant Colonel Viper, Lieutenant Colonel Kensel, Lieutenant Col onel Mordicai, Lieutenant Colonel Gene thcrs, Brigadier General Sanford. The bat talion of cadets, equipped in their gray over coats and white belts, with the bands of their muskets shining like silver, formed outside the door and entered the church, every inch of which is classic ground. The communion table, covered with the Americai. colors, with the inscription "For God and Country," the thousand memorial tablets with names of the glorious dead, whose names are linked with the past fortunes of the republic, the can nons with "George Rex" and the crown en graved, and the variegated and richly trimmed standards, torn from enemies of the republic from Bunker Hill to Chepultepec. What gloomy iuemories are these to cause American bltttpto throb and boil in the veins of her chosen children, the cadets of Wet Point, destined one day to lead her embattled hosts to the field. The sacred spot is full of memories. On yonder pew knelt the reticent boy Grant, here stern Stonewall wrestled with the promptings of the flesh. Yonder was the inner spot where Lee bowed his proud head under the teach ings of the humble divine, and in the shadow of tho column yonder volatile and irrepres sible Sherman perhaps dreampt of the great march to the sea, surely it is a place sacred to lofty thoughts and grand inspirations. Grant and his staff here entered, and a4 they pass tho gentlemanly looking cadets pay him and suite the tribute of the military salute. The minister, humbly attired in white sur plice or gown, ascends the pulpit and com mences the solemn and'bcautiiiil service of the Episcopal church. " I am the resurrection and tho life, saith the Lord ; he that bclieveth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live, and whoso ever liveth and believeth in me, shall," etc. " I know that my Redeemer liveth and that we shall stand at the latter day upon the rtli." These words of the inspired seer of Patmos fell solemnly upon the ears of the rapt congregation. J.he sermon continues with the 20th Psalm, beginning: "Lord, let me know rily end and the number of my days, that 1 may be certified how long I have to live." Grant sits quiet and placid during the service, surrounded by his staff. Corn stock and Badenn, with grave, scholarly, Saxon faces, lost in thought. Hudson, bluff and soldierlike, with the usual Western traits prominent. Parker, swart, thick-lipped, and aboriginal, and Wcrhler a little dandi- ficd. anting ciosc logeuicr arc wasnuum, I) 1111 Oil t , M iy Uj'Vll kUUIIVVIIUII UlUtVUM v- of power in debate, and Moulhman, with in quisitive lookingtoward the cadets. Grouped a. li.. . .i .1 : l r SlcCullom and Nicholson, in the corner of vices are ended, six cavalry sergeants bear the body forth, and the audience emerge into the church portal, some listening with eager can.. to the sweet strains of "Adeste Fiueles" from the military, and a few rumi nating on the solemn words just uttered, as to the nothingness of human life. THE OKAVE. The procession, on leaving the church, marched to the cemetery, winding around the hills in and about the Hudson, and while on the way to the grave, two wild eagles, attracted by the sound of the music, stopped their wild flight, and hovering about in the air, made repeated circles near the hearse, suggesting the thought of victory to all present. The battalion of cadets, on reaching the grave, formed as if on parade, and while the clergyman uttered the words : " Earth to earth ; ashes to ashes ; dust to dust f Captain Boynton scattered a shovel ful of clay on tho coffin. Presently the coffin was lowered into the grave, and all being ready, three successive vollies of mus ketry rung forth on the frosty air and rever berating with strange echoes, announcing that nnothcr true and tried soldier had won the last fight and undid his career." THE VETO- .TSIK VIEWS Ol" TVM. C. X1IVES. From the Richmond Whig. In a little friendly correspondence, about private matters, lajely with Mr. Kives, I expressed my admiration of the late veto of the President, and asked what he thought of it. Hie reply is so beautiful and patriotic, that I think it both due to him and the country that it sliould be made public. "When bad men assail a patriot for per forming his duty to his country, and seek to prejudice the people against him, all good men should sustain and vindicate him ; and the voice of no one can be more potential than tli.it of so pure a gentleman and ex perienced a statesman as Mr. Rives. James Lyoks. EXTRACT Or X LETTER, FHOil TIIE HON. VOL C. KITES. "You were pleased in your letter to ex press a desire to know my opinion of the late Presidential veto, I agree with yon entirely in your estimate of it. It lias been a God-send for ns, for if that horrible hydra headed monster, which lie so gallantly en countered and slew, had been to live, I do not see how the 'South would have been longer habitable for our own race. Indeed, my dear sir, the whole course of the Presi dent, since his admirable message at the opening of Congress, appears to me to have been in the spirit of the loftiest patriotUta and statesmanship, and worthy of the best days of the Kepublic. If lie goes on as lie . . , i , r. , , nas commenced, ne win title of the itcstorer than vhich I can conceive of no higher crown oi g'ory in mc ssu condition into which our country has Mien.
