FW>m the officers on board, I learn some incldon's as to the manner of the departure of (he Dictator which may not have transpired from more direct sources, an 1 whic'o perve to show his self-possession under circumstances which, met. by the lightest hesitancy, would be fatal. Having entire faith in Ids Guards, Santa Anita had in :ended embark mg in tho day time, and to leave Vera Cruz with the i lal and honors ol' his position, and in the afternoon 'be Guard* were ordered out to escort him to the landing from his temporary resident. The troops were formed in open order? front rank to the "light about," as usual? for the chief to pass through, and us the abdicating President, &c., arrived a* the right of tho line, the Colonel in command advanced saluting, and in farmed him "that the Guards had determined not tope, mit him to leave the country.''

More Slant Trading. As 1 promised in my latt, 1 will give you notes of the career of his ex-Highness, Santa Anna. At midday of the 10th an express arrived from the Mexican Consul, l)ua Ramon < .'arvallo. of Havana, informing tho General that the English steamer lie.- went, from Havana to St. Thomas, would be off this harbor on the 11th, ready to take his cx-Highness on board with his family. Tho engineer of the (.'nerrero being absent at Puerto Principe, the autho rities made a pretext of going out in the Spanish war steamer Bazan to look al'ter a slaver satd to be on the coaRt. So, at half past. 6, on the morning of the 11th, his ex-Highness find family went on board the Bazan, trans ferring seventy thousand dollars, mostly in hard cash ? silver put np in canvas sacks, $2,000 to each sack, thir ty-sacks. and two sacks of gold. On the way on board of the B. the boat went alongside of the Mexican stoamor, and Santa Anna in a few words said good bye, thanking the officers for their kindness and attention, and leaving the poor devils without a single dollar. Tho commander of the steamer, Senor Bosquet, having received a hint that if he went hack to Vera Cruz he might find thealr n ucoml'ortnblo, drew up the officers and crew anil resign ed the command into the hands ofthe second corn-minder, Isenor Gastan&do, a very worthy person. The chief is a native of Carracss; so he merely returns to his home. The Bazon lay off and on the day of the 11th and the night, mid early on tho morning of the tilth, they saw the English steamer, ard at 111 o'clock his ex-Highness, lady, son-in-law, wife and child, Genotal Soto and the six servants wi'li the aforesaid sacks, were duly trans ferred aboard, and 1 suppose ere this are in St. Thomas, enjoying tho cool breezes of that lovely spot. Santa Amu lei', here thoroughly despised by everybody, authorities and |>eople. In Principe he received every attention from the. authorities ? serenaded t>y tho bands of the egl ments, visited and attended in every manner. He never called upon any of the authorities, ami left his hotel three times in eight day- ? and what tor f To buy gtmo cocks, of which he carried off u good assortment. The otti-er.s of the fteainor Guerretn left Vera Cruz with \ e ry little funds, and rather suddenly. What money they had on board in tho purser's hands when in Havana they laid out in provisions and extra stores lor Santa Anna end family; when he left here, whs t few extras were left he .carried off with him, !< living the officers nnd men without stores or money. 'I he purser, Perai, bought a few tons of coals nnd home extra stores, amounting to f even hundred dollars, and ilr. Peter Sanchez I ?oly, through charity, paid this amount, taking a draft on the Mexican Consul at. Havana. Tho steamer left this port the morning of the 34th for Havana, to atvait orders from V^fa Crur. It appears that while tho authorities at Principe were busy dancing attendance on Santa Anna's heels, tho negro merchants of Principe, at whose head stands a high offi cer ? tho postmaster ? landed near tSiut-a Cruz, on the south bide, It. 7 negroes in good order, vessel and captain American. They were distributed by tho agouts of the aforesaid postmaster to the different purchasers, but by some little pecuniary quarrel among themselves, D. I Mi nion Cents, Governor of P. P., got hoid of the whole iiir.iir, seized some '10. and is hnnl at work afier the rest. My dear 1 1 kim in. there is one solemn fact; all tho vessels for these last two years or more, on anger] in this traffic, have teen fitted out in your rity and mostly mannod and officered by American citizens. This is positive, and thoy have nlso been taken in and done for by the merchants generally, for after ti e negroes are on to landeil the cap lain bus no hope other of trusting to the honor of the Cuban -lave merchants.

Unit week Santa Ke wait vl uted by one of th ? severest storms of rain luat ha* been known here for many year.-). It was the openi-ag of tha rainy ????son, aud in right good earnest did it begin. It commenced raining Thursday noon, the 16th inst., but After continuing about half an hour with severity, it ceased for the time being, and we bad but little ii any more until ihe next day. The storm re-> ommenced itiout half-past nine, Friday evening, and continued nearly all night, raging with a fury almost unknown in Me.xico. It seemed that the window* of heaven wore fairly opened, and it resembled more the pouring of wi?t?<r out of buckets, than rain. The plaza was conver ted int o a great lake, and along all the street ^ ran torrents of water like small rivers. The Aceuulas broke ov<>r ' its ^banks, and the water, spreading with headlong velocity, Inundated gardens and fields, and, in some in altinces, washed down houses that obstructed its course. The Eio CUnuito rose to an unprecedented height, and for a time cutotf all intercourse between the two parts of the town. We had retired early to rest, and was not aware of the terrible storm that was raging without until about two o'clock iu the corning, when we were awakened by Samuel Ellison, Esq. , knocking at the door, and asking for shelter from the water. Two other gentlemen came with him, all of whom the water hau routed from their rooms. Iu a little while Major Fry, IJ. K. A., and family sought shelter with us, having likewise been driven from their hi use by the ilood. lhey were awakened in the miedle of the night by the water pour1 ng through the roof, and riishir g in at tho doors ? great cracks opened in trie walla, and some of tho back walls fell doivn The two rooms of the office adjoining the dwelling fell in. burying books and furniture under the ruins. In ono ol the.-e rooms Messrs Lend. -um and Brevoort were sleeping, and in a few minutes after they had left it the walls tell n. Adjoining were the moms of Messrs. Smith and Mil ler. both of wbi h were flooded, and one of the back walls fell in. Adjoining the house of Major Fry, on the other side, were the quarters of Mr. Ellison; his rooms are en tirely ruined, and some of the walls have fallen dowu. This wkole row of buildings, nearly three hundred feet long, is ruined, and will havo to be entirely rebuilt. The loss may bo estimated at two thousand dollars. The loss ol' Major Fry, in damage done to furniture and clothing, is about two hundred aud fifty dollars. In other parts of tlie town our citizens fared as brolly. The Quarter Master's stables, in the garrison, fell in, but foitunately there were no animals in them at tbe time A torrent ol water rushed into the house of Dr. Abadic, Hooding parlor and chambers, and doing much damage to the furniture. Part of the roof of Mr. Cungliug's house tell in, besipex being -generally flooded. The lie v. Mr. Talhuret and family were driven out of their rooms, and obliged to seek shelter with a friend. Mr. Spencer and family, in tin same patio, were also washed out, and for shelter from tlie rain in future they moved into his store room, which has a light roof. Tlie brewery establish mi nt of Myers h Ott is almost entirely destroyed, and the loss, in material, &c., is estimate 1 at from one thou sand to fifteen hundred dollars. Both the hall of th? Ma sons and of the Odd Fellow s were flooded, and con siderable damage done to the furniture; the buildings W?ie not materially injured. Three bouses of Simon D. were destroyed, mid that of Mr. Lerma is In ruins, ex cept one room. A house on the opposite side of the Chi quita, at the corner of the street and tho river, w is par tially destroyed. Besides the houses enumerated, many others wire materially injured, and scarcely one pro tected it - inmates from the torrent of water that descend ed. Fortunately, our merchants did not suffer much, having taken tlio precaution to repair the roofs of their stores before the rain. The Council Chamber and House of Representatives are yet filled with goods of families who were driven from their houses, where they will remain until the owners can provide themselves with other hou es to move Into. The quantity ot water that tell during tho twenty-four hours iva? about three inches and a half, according to the r it lii unagc at the hospital. The entire loss sustained by our citizens cannot fall much short of ten thousand dollars, including the damage done to the fleMs of grain in the valley, some of the crops being entirely destroyed.

A few Indians wore seen at oi near the crossing of the Arkansas, and at one or two other places on tbe way, but they all soemod very friendly. From the Territory of New Mexico there is no news of an exciting chai acter. Business was improving as tho trains reached their destinat ion. A letter from Foit Union, dated on the 1 -it, gives a few items of news. " Our Indian rotations," it says, -'are assuming a better aspect. Treaties have been made, or renewed, with the Moscaleros, the Jfuvajos, and the Capote I'taii- ? leaving only tlie Blanco I talia and the .lieaiilla Apaches, with whom wo have been lighting all the winter, out ot the mystic circle. These latter .ire, at their own request, to meet the (Jovemor at Abique in the early pact of this month, onl it ij expected that they will make a t reaty which they will keep in good faith, for a year or two at least, lhey are all behaving theinselve very well at present, and we hear little or nothing ol depredation- in any quarter. 'I be recruits from the States arrived hero on the 17th July. A lire at tbe little Ai kansas meadow burned up their caiup. It burned and discharged several of theii muskets, by which some of the men were injured ? ono fatally.

From prosaut appearances, ii i i probable that Padre Gallego, the forme.- delegate, will lie defeated by young Otero. This latter gentlen an was educated in the lulled States, (at St. liou)*, where be studied law,) and is an American iu feeling, lieing one of the most respectable men in tbe country, both by birth and education it is to be hoped that he will bo successful over tbe rene gade priest, who is a very corrupt man.
