Information received this morning from Her mosillo, state of Sonora, Mexico, is to the eflcct that tlic Yaqui In dians are preparing for a general revolt. They have driven all ranchers outside of what they claim as their land, which covers an area of about 2o0 square miles and is the most fertile and richest mineral land in the state. They rob all travelers who pass through their country irrespective of nation ality. The Mexican government proposes to send 4000 troops to build posts and protect sp.ttlers who mav return. ',500 of these troops are now en route from Guadalajara, and 1,500 are to be recruited at Guaymas and Hernosillo. The Yaquis are about 15,000 strong and can mus ter between :,000 and 4.000 war riors. They are partially civilized and stock raising, farming and mining are their chief products. They declare that they will ne ver give up their territory or allow any ether people but their own to sot tie on these lands. GENERAL FOREKIX NEWS. j nr MAIL NI TF.U'WKirU. The franklin Kcl!

In conse quence of IJussia's advances on Herat, by river and valley, Ayoob Khan has declared war against the ameer and has already occupied Maimund. A "Waste of Time. It is stated that seven thousand bills have been introduced into the house of representatives since the opening of the present session of congress. Think of it! How many private schemes must there be involved in these bills? It would seem that seven, or, at the most, seventeen, bills might em body all that is necessary for gen eral legislation; and yet, though congress has only a little over a month to run, the bills still keep pouring in. In one da no less than 101 bills and four joint res olutions were introduced into the house. It would be impossible for the committcs to consider and report upon the fiftieth part of these bills before the adjournment, and the offering of more bills, un less of great national importance, is merely occupying the time of the house, which might devote its proceedings to something practical and useful. Most of these bills are ordered printed, which is an THE NICARAGUA ROUTE. OFFICIAL. ThePrivileseofConsctiu5anIn-i Washingfam tern- terocean Canal Granted in 1827.

The govern ment of Central America, on the 17th of June last, granted the privilege of executing this impor tant work to A. H. Palmer esq. of the United States, who was to commence in the fall with C,000 workmen from this country, :ud was to complete it in eighteen months. The river Juan, issuing out of the eastern part of lake Nicaragua, is more than 100 miles long, and flows into the Caribbean sea. Lake Nicaragua is also more than 100 miles in length; so the passage, including seventecu miles of canal, will be about 250 miles. The canal is to be of dimensions suitable for a ship to pass, and the company who hare contracted are to have the right of toll for twenty years. The cost is not yet ascertained." This was not the first attempt at practicable application of the idea of uniting the two oceans by the Nicaragua route, but the undertak- inr seems to have been an earnest one. PUZZLED OK.
