Dear Sir:-An extra session of the Mexican Congress has been called by the President, to take int6 consideration the affairs of Texas and the nited States. The result of this will be beyond any man ner of doubt, a declaration of war. The (lay fixed for the meeting of the Congress was the 1st July, consequently by the I next mail from Mexico, we shall receive the news of its installation. . Nothing will be done'in.the way of a declaration of! war until the official news of the action, of the 4th of July Couvention-is received which news will be brought down imme diately by the British frigate Eurydice, it is supposed. Government makes no great bluster about a war, but at the same time is making active preparations secretly of a most energetic- nature, as I am assured by those who know what is Going on. The intention is to send thirty thousand men to Texas. and with this object orders have been given to General- Paredes, C...

The letter is front a friend and correspon dent in Vera Cruz, and enclosed the com tmunications, which are from the Minister of War and Marine of Mexico.
