Mr. Rogers, of Somerset, replied to him, and was in favor of :v conciliatory course, and opposed to the Thirty Million Cub* proposition as being s bad speculation.

It was written a few days after the revolution, which overturned C inonfort’s | government.just twenty-f‘>"r hours, indeed,; Iwforc that gentleman took his departure f.r the Unite*! Slate*, and i* addressed to the ve teran onc-leggist ciiieftain 1 iuiM-li. The writer is about half in pood spirits, half, in bad spirits. The revolution brought about by the old General's machinations, promised [ well at firrt, but wa> like >• to turn out badly. This unfortunate finis” is attributed to the [ clergy, directed by Padre Miranda. Politically I and rViigioudy. they were in favor of Santa Anna’s return’, but he *v t* a mar. *<f too strong a will for them to n'.arag-, so they chose Zn- I l*,apa President, whose government, it was nfe!y predictal, would not attain to a very great old age. Ctrc of the most curi -ns things in the letter j is the uncertainty which it manifests as to the ; whereabouts of Santa Anna himself from i which it would appear that the old chieftain j is not very communicative as to his move ments, even t*’ hi* friends. He might Ins at Havana (as was reported at tht lime) or at Cartliagcna, Ins N**w Granadian home, or in the British West Indies; but wherever he might be, lie was assured of the devotion of his nonplussed friends. Another curious item in the letter is the | statement that the Zul *ga government and the clergy had sent a mission to Havana, re questing the Captain General to detain Santa Anna if there, in that city, and m t to permit his then much talked return to Mxico. This i mission carried out, as a sort of bribe, the promise of Gen. Concha, that the pending difficulty with Spain would b satisfactorily settled by the new government. Santa Anna was quite unnecessarily eautiouod to b- on hi* guard against their wiles.

Death or Mike Wai.su.—Few men in this city were more notorious than Mike Walsh, whose body was found al>out half-pa * ■ 5 o’clock tiiis morning, by officer C-urtn< y. at the foot of the rteps leading to the base ment *>f No. 138 Kiglilh avenue.
