MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 23 November 1861

MEXICO. rite Government has issued a decree suspending nil payments to foreign creditors, There is great indignation in consequence among the foreigners. The British and Frencu Ministers have protested, nnd refuse to have olticial intercourse until they hear from home. A number of foreigners have been murdered lately, in various parts of the Republic, H. M, Benle, a well known Englishman, among them. The representatives of England and France have suspended all diplomatic relations with the Mexican Government. This event took place on the 20lh Aug. The closing of tho French and English Lega tions is a sufficient comment on the events of the month, before recordud. It is impossible for us to make any conjectures upon a step likely to affect the future of Mexico so much. It is taken, and time alone can reveal the important conseriuonces. Thirty-five newspapers and journals are published at present in the Republic. The assassins who wounded Mr*. Maison and Cap tain Aldham, have been arr...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 23 November 1861

COKltESPONDENCE. j ? 9 ? To the Editor of the Newcastle Chronicle. Si ii— Collectors will call on the inhabitants of Newcastle I and its vicinity to solicit contributions to the British and Foreign Bible Society. As there cannot be a better call, so it is hoped the public will sustain its notoriety for re sponding liberally to every good call. The principles of the Bible Society are so catholic that the keenest sensibility of the most rigidsectnrian cannot be affected, It is more necessary than ever that Christians of all denominations link together to disseminate the Truth ; because, tint only the baneful influence of boasted and unblushing infidelity, but, in these times, that insidious infidelity under the clonk of religion, has to be counteracted.— Yours, ftc.j OBSERVER.
