Thla la believed here. Col Hugbea la to bo left in command of Jalapa Tba troopa in camp near town are fullering from ohilla and fever*, cauaed by the ocol nights and very heavy dawr.

The supply waa famished by a house In New Orleans, and negotiated for by on* Carvsjal, a commlstfgter deputed by tho Mexican government for that poi^se. The selection of Col Hnghrs for Governor of this department Is, In my opinion, a, most happy one, and reflect! much oredit on Gen. l'atterson. Hughes is the very offloer for such service The duties of a Governor at thla particular quarter will be. for many reasons, delicate and Important, and will require a man of shrewd n?ss and good addrea* to perform them properly. The general dleoovered In Col Hughes theae qualities, added to Bound military knowledge, and choae him accordingly. I am told,too, that the inhabitant* here, who have lonir looked fur hi* bptrmr nlncm! in nhftrirt of thl* tie partment, were desirous that he should bo pat in command, and * knowledge of this very probably added to tit* r?uoai which Induced the general to make this excellent appointment. mexican politics. [From the N. O I'icajune. Not. 30 1 In the ffntitioto we find a letter from liueretaro, dated the 2d November. After detailing the organita Hon of Congress, seventy-two deputies being present, the letter proceed* aa follows " The candidature of Ueneral Almonte has oompletely fallen through. It would appear that the Puioa became convinced that this general wonld enoounter the animosity el all parties, and they oast about for another, who could give them better guaranties of vietory.

" Senor Karias has arrived, being deputised by Zacatecas, and has presented himself in the Congress which removed him from the Vice Pre* idency " This letter may be a key to tbe late movements of 8anta Ann* la addressing the Mezisan Congress and the President. We find in several Mexican papers very violent attacks ujon Parades, all lmputlog to him monarchical designs. The Area /rii gives a report that he had al will recoiled ?u monarchical.

We find one vote taken in the Mexloan Congress on th*4tb Inst It was upon a proposition brought forward by a Puro, to the effeot that the ministers should present themselves to the Congress to render an account o( what measures they had taken for the war. It was voted doan by flfty odd voices against twenty-five, among the latter being Uomn Farias, Ktjon, Pacheco and the two Romeros No attempt to elect a presldont had been made on the 4th, but the ohanees were still considered In favor of Cumplldo. All the papers attribute to Pena y Puna the design of getting rid of the old army, or rather of the great body of the officers of the same, aad organize a new army under Oen Lombardlnl. e THK CONDITION OF MEXICO.
