Detachments of the expedition will sail from this port or Boston about the first of February for Corpus Christi the nearest port to the Paso del Norte and 100 miles nearer that great point of rendezvous than La Vaca.

LATER FROM MEXICO. By the brig Titi which arrived rat New Orleans on the 30th ult. the N. O. Delta received dates from Vera Cruz to the 35th. The proceedings in Congress up to the 19ih ult. were quite unimportant. A moderate Tariff bill 'it was supposed would pass tho House of Deputies ! though its fate n the upper house was deemed uncer- tain. The Minister of Finance is to be impeached before the Senate for infringing the law in raising funds for the Government. The insurrectionary movements at Sultcpec and Temascaltepec had been suppressed and most of the insurgents dispersed. Don E. Leon was still holding out but without any other hope than that of saving his life and the liv.es of his folldwcrs. Tt is said that if the Government do not pardon them they will destroy themselves. The most appalling accounts reach the capital daily of Indian outrages perpetrated in every direction and the Government it seems is utterly incapable of af fording protection to the lives of the inhabitan...
