STATU OK APFAIRS IN TUK CITY OF MEXICO. |Krom the N. 0 Picayune, Auk. 8 1 We have again Jo remark that the representation* of the news mad fnffii Vera Cnii and from Tuebla, differ. From the former city the account* are decidedly more favorable to peace than from f ilebla This in probably to be explained by the fact that gentlemen |n Vera Cru* derive their Impressions very much froni the Kuglich. who are aware of the effort* making by their Minlstnr to brinp; about negotiations for peace, and prevent the city of Mexico from falling into our haudj. When we have more room at our command, we shall huvemore to nay about the probabilities of peace; we content ourselves to-day by givtog our readers every facility for forming their own opinions by the ample correspondence we offer them With thi3 view we present the following translation of a letter of the latest date from the city of Mi.xiio, written by a foreign merchant established there, to hie eorruspoudunt in Vera ("ruz Mexico, July 29,1847. 1 have lhe uluasuru of aoLnowledirinir the reoeint of your esteemed favor of tUo 14th instant. with its enclosures, and thank you for the new* you commuuiCAtnd. 1 aut uuublo In return to tell you anything of much consequence We are i.lill waiting and yery impatiently, to nee thu end of the present state ftf affairs. Latterly it ban been vt-ry generally believed that negotiations tor p?ao? would be entered Into, but it appears that expectation* to this effect are like* ly to b? disappointed, pence uow appearing to be more remote than ever A junta of the principal generals of the army took plane yesterday. Some were of opinion that the wUest oi.ume wait to lnuroh out with ail their disposable forced uud attack the Americana at Tuebla; but this opinion did not prevail. Tbey determined that tbey would await tranquilly the enemy within the walls of the city, continuing to fortify themselves as strongly us possible. H'e know not, therefore, what will happen, or whether the Americans will commence tilt ir march forthwith. I doubt whether they will do it before the arrival of further reinforcements. In the mi antime affairs are going on here from bad to worse, and heavy contributions are levied, the collection of which is effected with extreme difficulty. so that the Government has great trouble to provide tbe means for the subsistence of a large army 8anta Anna isat thin moment sole dictator. Congress can do nothing, because there is uever a sufficient number of members present to form a 4110mm for business Tbey say that the Government is seeking a closer union with Kuropean powers, and with this view has given orders for the li quiaatlon or tne claims or their subjects. The above brief note is from a most respectable source, ami maybe presumed to afTord a just idea of affairs in the capital, aud it in later than any papers from the city Mr. Kendall had seen when he last wrote.

The samo editor announces that extensive preparations are being made at the palace for the reception ol the youthful enmsort of Santa Anna, who was hourlj expected. He intimates that her appearance will alio viate and distract the illustrious Geueral (rom othei cares, and further says thut while she is liv his side h? probably will not be able to hold ax frequent conversations with other ladies us ban been his wunt of late, to the great prejudice of a third person, (the Senora SanU Anna he doubtless mean* ) Itutber a hard hit, this; and in u guard of soldiers eutert d the Monitor office a churl time afterwards in Hearth of the editor, it was nrobablj felt Almonte lias born sent oil to Tuianuingo, to take com mand of the post there, but this here is considered at equivalent to a dbgracA. und is noticed bv the uditoi of Kl Monitor tinder the head of " Persecutions " A1 monte hiwsell complains that he hus no time to colleci baggage appropriate lor an officer ol his rank, being hur ried off at only twenty-four hours' notice.

All our account from the city of Mexico, both verbal and through th newspaper*, would indicate that the euemy is determin ed upon making u stout resistance, and that they wi doit la the general impression.

I repeat,, that I hop that neither Kngl.ah influence nor American gold ma be able to effect anything in bringing about a pence. I is impossible for me to nay witli certainty that than agents are at work, but I believe they are; and 1 furtbe think it auytbing but creditable to our country t make use ot them. With the American (lag flying u tbe palace in the capital, perhaps we might bear sonw thing iu the snape of a proportion?the first one? firot Mexico.
