NERAL WOnT.-The brigade ofGen

The scene in and about Tampico is stn

VERA CRuz.;-There appears to b' no
truth in the report of the evacuation of
V.-ra Cruz. 00 the contrary, the papers
state that the oauthorities of the department,
being convinced that it is the intention of
the enemy toaittack that city are actively
emp1)lo) ed inleeising and perfecting meas.
iires for its defence. "Puenie National,"
and another salient point, called Chiquies
uite, have been fortified. The legislative
asserbly of the department, sitting at .Ja
lapa, have authorized the Governor of Ve-*
ra Cruz to abopt every possible means for
hefence-.clothing him, for the -time, %with
extraordinary powers. The accounti of
the situatiou and number ofour troops are
quite contradictory.
