They-left Anton Lizardo on the 16th October,
and arrived at Frontera on the 23d. Captured
steamers Petrita and Tabasyaeno, and several
small vessels. On the 24th and 25th ascended
the river sevenly-two miles to Tabasco ; the
current very rapid : towed by the petrita and
Vixen ; passed Devil's Turn at 2 P. M., and
landed and spiked four 24 pounders;. Arrived
offTabasco at 6 P. M., and anchored in line
ahead, distatit ;150 yards from the shore. Sunrt
monedthe city to surrender. Governor refused.
Fired three j shots from the Vixen one cut
down the fUg-istafiuof the fort, and, las the col
ors fell, wo thought that they had surrendered.
An ornccr came ou wun a request mat we
would spare their hospitals, which was granted.1
At r o'clock; landed 200 seamen and it a ri ties,
but, as it was too late, to attack the fort, they
were ordered on board. Some skirmishing en
sued, but none of us wjere hurt. This was Sun
day, and the Commodore was somewhat reluc
tant to commence the attack on thai day. Cap.
lured one brig, three schooners, and one large
sloop; also, captured one schooner before
we arrived at Frontera, and another on our
passage up ihe river;! making in all ono brig,
fivo schooners, two steamers, one! sloop, and
many small ci-aft and lighters. Monday, 26th,
at daylight, sharp fire of musketry from shore,
which waa returned by our great guns, firing
at the flash, I The firing was continued for
some lime at intervals, when a white flag was
shown by the civilians on shore, no doubt with
the consent ibf the Governor. Sent off a peti
tion to the Comodore io spare the town, which
jie granted, adding that he only desired to fight
the soldier)' Got the prizes under weigh,
and made every preparation for returning
white flag flying all the while. Lieut. W. A.
Parker got ashore with his prize vessel near
the city, and was attacked by about eighty sol
diers, whom he beat off with about eighty men,
losing only ohe and Ijiaving but two wounded.
This affair lasted thirty minutes. Lieut. C. W.
Morris was dispatcher to him with orders, and,
passing the heavy fire of the enemy, was woun
ded in the neck by a musket ball. . Lieut. Mor-
the passengers was Senor Felix Rivas,
bound for England, on a mission for the
Government of Mexico, supposed to have
for his object solicitation of foreign aid. V
We have before mentioned the resigna
tion of his office by Senor Rejop, the Mex
ican Foreign Minister. It is now added
that Senor Pacheco, the Minister of Jus
tice has also resigned. The! two posts
have been filled by the appointment of
Generals Lafragua& Ladron de Guevara.
The department of San Lujs Potosi is
said to have declared against) the provi
sional President, Gen. Salas, demanding
that Santa Anna should be at once invels-
' . i
ted with supreme power.
! Meantime it appears that srjme real or
pretended attempts upon the life of Gen
eral Salas have been made, in bonseqence
of which he had left the capital and ta
ken up his residence at Tacubjaya, with: a
body guard of troops. The story of the
attempted assassination had! been sent
post haste to Santa Anna, whb made use
of it by publishing . a letter, translated as
follows: Nat. Int. j
; GEN. SANTA ANNA TO GEN. jALMONTE
To his Excellency ihe Minister of War. j
j Sir: By the reception of your circular
of the 19th instant, I have learned wih
extreme regret that our foreign enemies,
by means of their disguised agents, at
tempted on the evening of that day a se
rious outrage, from which it appears that
they were endeavoring todispossess his Ex
cellency of the supreme executive power,
which circumstance gave rise to a series
of alarrhs, and would have produced the
most disastrous consequences had it not
bjeen opportunely discovered at the mo
ment. I t!
the Americans learn this they will proba
bly pay us a; visit, even if they had not
previously determined to (ake possession
of the place. Many families are leaving,
but I shall remain."
By way of Havana, we have received late
dates from Merida and Camneachy. The last
mentioned town is in a state of revolution in
consequence of the act of adhesion to Mexico.
Accounts from Merida give! ground lo believe
that a new pronunciamento has taken place a
gainst that measure, and conflict was eipected
between the garrisons and! the troops of the
two! places. The Diario de; la Marina says it
is known that Campeachy was forced to ac-
I knowledge the acl recognizing General San
ta Anna. Uesides the hatred borne towards
Santa Anna by that town, they allege as anoth
er motive for her resistancejthe certain block
ade of the ports of ihe whole Peninsula by the
American Squadron, which would put a stop to
! all their trade in the Gulf.
