The harbor of Laguna is perhaps as s ife as any in.the world. Only one vessel, vo believe, has been lost for the last fifteen years. It was during a hurricane of aim ist unparalleled violencc'that this one was lost: her crew were saved.' But the entrance of tlie harbor of Laguna is not very good, a bar crosses it which is impassable to vessels drawing above sixteen feet of water; banks of mud, too, line either side of the entrance, nnd thereon commanders who 1 ave never been at Laguna before often touch particularly when a norther blows.

Slcxican Views. . 1 he Journal ot Commerce publishes a long letter from " a distinguished source" in Mexico to a friend in New York, which, if we are to receive it ns a true type of the national feeling and purpose, sets at rest all question of a speedy- peace, or indeed any peace at all. The writer W,c suppose to be General Almonte, as we know that he has been for some time corresponding actively with friends in New York. It is reasonably to be inferred, we presume, tliat the substance of his letters, at least, is intended to reach the public The letter adds nothing positive to what has again and again been made known -touching the disposition and feelings of the magnanimous Mexican nation, and is chiefly remarknblc for^hejiitter distinctness widi averted only by an ~ un^i7rTt76ri51" w]tiidrnwal of the American forces-, land and naval.
