The i roshlng reply of the Irish patriot and exile, Joha Mitchel, to the bold and impudent agita- ' tor, Henry Ward Beecher, has been succeeded by an equally able letter from D'Arcy McGee, one óf the most vigorous political writers of the day.

I" I, - \ Further wox Mexico.—We learn that just previously ta the sailing of the Texas from V era Cruz, a telegraphic despatch had been received tlfcre, announcing the cessation of hostilities be- tween Alvarez and Santa Anna. The latter, it is reported, had offered concessions to Alvarez, which had led to an understanding, and an • arrangement of the difficulties between the two parties. . A communication which we have received from the city of Mexico dated the 4th instant, gives a very different view of the state of affairs with Santa Anna and his forces in the south, fr*HO <h * which the intelligence gathered from the newspapers would induce us to believe. Ac- cording to the statement of the writer, the gov- ernment forces, since their arrival at Chilpan- cingo, had dwindled away very materially.

Being anxious to see an old ac- quaintance who was, Staying at the St. Louis, he went abont seven o'clock yesterday evening, anticipating no difficulty in so simple a matter. Ascending the first flight of stairs, he baited be- fore thte clerk's office, and not knowing the num- ber of his friend's room, politely requested to have his card sent to Mr. Blank.
