JTKM8 OP XEXIOAN HEWS ROM THE HAVANA AND NEW OB LEANS PAPERS. El Ihario dt la Marirta of Havana, uader date of 11th March, gives the following news from Mexico : ? The English steamer brought us papers from VeraCraz up 10 the 4th inst. The news reaeivel by th?m alter b it Mtle the pohtical situation of Mexico. There is rue feet in them, however, of soma importance, we mean tie capture or (ieneral Uraga. The P'ugtetv oi Vera Jrtu c f the 28th February, contains the following extract or a toner written by tae President of tbe republic under date of 21st of February, to the Governor of Vera Cruz :? J have the pleasure to communicate to your fjtcel tanay the important news that a body of troop* waled WlMkfewotMt ?be entrance of L* rag* wan com pletely routed at Flaxcala, all isa officers beia? mvl* priaoners, together with I'raga, aod all those who aecom pantod him. Uragaatd the otner offi;ers are en route lor this capital. The soldiers nave been incorporated in the division Moreno. This and the two others destined with the rssarve corps to attack Paebla, are in readiness, and toe question will soon be decided. To these statements the Prcgrtsc of the 29th February ntta the following:? We are informed that in Chautla, one lea;ne : -cm Ian Martin raamelucan. an advanced corps of the reoelh, consisting of the 'sacred company,' was defeated, their nasnwisailnnt being made prisoner, and home wounded ana dead being the reiult ot the encounter. This success was due to tbe well directed forces of General Ghilardi who. sinee the 24th, had advanoed to tais point. It is further rumored that the main force of H arc's troops had left Paebla on the night of the 26th without Ma feting known to what quarter th*y proceeded. There remained in the eity only from 800 to 1,000 men, and it to pcoba ale that the troops of Ghtludi, uniting with those of Traecni, have already attacked the city, or, per fen, entered it. In the capital all waa prepared for the setting out of hie KxcaUtnoy the President on the 27tb . at the nead of 8,000 man, beaidei the cor pa of Ghilardi, Zulonga, Moreno and ViilareaL which number not less than 6,000 men. It will seem strange that, in order to attack and reduce 4,000 or 1,000 men, shut up in a city, such considerable toeea are deemed necessary; but the government wiahea to prevent the dispersion of the rebels who, if toey have net already suoceeced in escaping, will now find it impossible. With regard to the sit oation of the interior of the republic, there is posttlv* news that com plete tranquility leigns everywhere. In its number ot tne 2d March the Progruo adds: ? A respectable citizen of Orizaba writes under date of '^Br.h February to tbe Governor of that 3 ate, a letter from which we give the loilowing extracts: ? By a fr.snd of mine who came from Morelia. and who toft Mexico on 83d, I learn that on tbe previous day tbe teaope begin to leave tor Pue>>i?i ?nfl twt Sr C. .mnnfo-i waa hiss sell to direct their operations. The whole lores or the three aims, consisting of irom 10 to 11,000 mea, were all to have left tbe capital by the 26th, carrying with ibou from fnty to fifry pieces of cannon. 1 writs this to your Excellency with tbe ne'.:*taetion that tne news I give is certain Mid encourag. og. From Puehla 1 learn alas, by a traveller who left tnat eity on the 2t3tu. ana arrived hare on tbe 28th, that anadvan;ed corps had reached tbe bridge of Mexico, that tbe rebels wire full of tour, and that orders bad bean given to all foroei without tbe city to enter it, and that oa tbe 27th my informant met in Acalciago seme piquets of cavalry, which we e marching ia all baste. This last news ia not in accordance with the preceding, and it is alao to be oteerved that the letter from Orizaba of the 28th says aothiog of the capture >f Uraja. As rtgards the attack on Puebla. tbe Progrtto, in its number of the 4th of March, after depicting the preta rious situation of Haro y Tamariz, only adds, that on the 28 h tbe main body ot the government troops were at Rio Pristo, three aod a half leagues from Puebla, and that the same day Senor Comonfort had arrived at San Martin Teamalucan. The moat important news of another kind is tha fa-.t of the Constitutional Congreaa having ccmtirssed ;ienoini natioa of Senor Comonfort aa President dubetitute, and ot Senor D. Ponciano Arriaga a* President of tha Congreaa. In Vera Cruz several of the pronaneiad h of Ciloa ha>e keen condemned to death, but they had addressed them selves to tbe President, imploring pardon, wnich, it to reported, had been accorded to them. The Vera Cruz correspondence of the New Orleiu? Br'., wnderdateof March 7, has the following remarks:? Af fcirs at Puebla are unchanged. We have heard of no j eoliision yet.

Be baa tlx children living In England, and thair families, aad now, at the venerable age of aeventy ena yeara, ie desirtiu* to return and spend with them the short space af his remaining life. This ha cannot do, un less under grant of an nncondfonel pardon for his aliened offence against the English sovereignty. His frend* hare, therefore, have decided to use their influence to this end. At the meeting Tuesday rrening ? the Orel one eallel for his purpose ? over two hundred reel dents of this city and Brockhrn were present. Mr. Wsj. Thompson, of Brooklyn, and formerly 'editor of th ? Glasgow Chariot Oirrular, m cUied to the citi-. Mr. Thompson, upon taking the chair, thanked the meeting for the honor conferred upon him in selecting him to preside, lie felt it an honor thus to stand ap for an honorable man, and in defence of the principles of right and Justice. Ba then briefly and in a reeling nun - ner alluded to the connection of Mr. Frost with the Cha* lUt movement in Great Britain ia 1840, resulting in bit transportation for Hte. Ha cenclu led with o String the following reeolut ion Resolved, That we hall the presence among as of M". J - ha Freet, and thus pnblisly eoavsy to bim the assuraa:e 01 our profound respect for hie moral cbaraoier as a man, and ice warmest sympathy for his sufferings and exile. Mr. ALHAHDiat I'Aiunm in moving toe adoption of the resolution made a remarks. Every one preseat kaew John Frost, if not personally, by reputation. H s oourse in Ed gland sad banishment was familiar to thsm all, and his suffering* under his transportation. Unlike otaerd banished for the like offence with himself, he bad neea compelled to labor In a rh_in gang in o?nneetton with criminals and felons. He bad oeea permitted 10 leave Australia, but was restricted from placing hi* foot on his native sell. All present, he Relieved, would unite ia ef forts to have this final restriction upon his liberty re- I moved. He only h 'ped tneir efforts would meet with the reepcnte the high wcr'h aod caarac-ec and long piv. and preseot suffering* of llr. Froit at tie hands of cue hjighni govt rumen t deserved. Mr. Jams Viobih seconded the resolution in ijuite a lengthy speech, reviewirg the outbreak cf the t.o/'a-r. Chartist rebellion, and the arrest, trial a -id seu'eo^e of Mr. Fro*:, consequent thereon. After a rec.ul ol" tae severe raffetings Ur. Froet underwent during bis oaiisv rnent, he terminated his remarks with a gij slug eulo giam of h's private life and character. ?The resolution being pa' from tbe chair, was pa-sei unauioK usiy, (olloee*. oy nine hearty ch?e.-s lor iLr.

A taw prefatory extemporaneous reaarcs were made by Mr. Frost, expressing his foeliug a: the spirit mtnilested oy the parties p.-eeent towards ui nself. H<- showed much warmth and emotion in the aelivd.-t, and particularly in his allusions to his long contiouel exile from his home and the bosom of his faintly. Be longed to return to England, bo*, as strong as I this desire was. he would n*vsr consent to do it at the sacrifice of his independence. Hewjuld never go home | a praiaer of the English ministry.

He now proceeded to read a lengvhj and interesting accoun. of tte p?-; taken by himself in the Chariis: rebellion, and his trial upon the charge of high treason, together with a d? tailed history of bit more tecent life at Van Die man's Laud, be alluded at first to the ut jast power whieh the ttogiitu government could exercise over a tubjeit daring to ex press opinions adverse to it. The partiality snown to Irish Chariis s over himself and his companions. lie deemed as worthy of rebuke only next to the pr.coary action of the government in taking cognizaaee of tie acts of either of toem. He now spoke ol him?tl'. In i819 he held m veral important c jmmiswoas under the Eagllsti government. In tost year he was ehcxnn to preside over the Convention of Cnartlsts held in Monmoutu. On the entnicg day a letter was tent bim by Ly.-d John Rustell, threatening him with ioes ot hit commie lion. He subsequently went to London, and took part in a Coartist Convention being held taere, aav irg previously, however, given up aU commission as a Justice. Wht.e ia Londcn he permitted the co.TeapDn denoe between Lord Joan Husseli and bimseif to be put> litned, which made Lord John Russell his mortal ei-eaiy. A spy was set upen his movements. In June, 1840. he was in'icted lor high treason. Be deijribed his trial at leogth. Judge and jury, he said were against him ani he waa found guilty and sentenced to be ex sc ited.

The jailor, hangman, magistrate, and lord Normandy were in constant conference to frighten them to self-cestructien. The object was to ?bow the public toat this punishment was jist. One of his companions, indeed, did urge suioide. Icei - sentence was finally reipitel to the tith of Fetruary, atd then again subsequently commuted tj transportation to life. nr. f'rest proceeded to give a detailed de*?np'.i >a of his life whils at Van IHemao's Land. He was a', drst placed in an offise at clerk, woe e he U red very tre'.l eomparaiivaly. He wrote, by the consent of the gova n ment an horitit* a letter tc hii wi'e. A portion of this letter vaa rubbshed in th* Cagllsb pipars, and for this reason te was taken from the offije anl p^el in the chain wag, where t e wai must iuhu-naa y used.

At the hour appointed a la-ge and Influential meeting assembled and was organized, after some interruptions, I am sorry to say. from peiaon-i in the employ of out ot the public establishments located on the i-Und. Col Nathan Barrett was cnosen President and Uaotitl t. Dlssosway, Esq., Secretary of the meeting. A xeries or resolutions was adopted, the preamble to wiicb reca pitulates ail the facts I have stated above. Four of the resolatitns read at follows:? Resolved, That tbe conduct tf the executive is to be deplored not only at paralyzhig the correct administration ot criminal justioe in this county, but as i npatrlng it' vigor throughout the state; sod to at coming as It does at a time when the pubic prosecutors ot our neighboring counties have abandoned to co-pair their ellnrts to bring corruption in offioe to the bar ot justice. It has indicted an iajury on tbe morals and good order of society which ishkely to survive the memory of toe aai by whom it hss been perpetrated.

Governor Clark wan bu-neiic effigy in the evenirg. The feelings of the people here are :uii; aronsed, and the unscrupulous conduct of the nigger worshipping politicians universal y condemned. 'l'ne most turpmiog part of tie whole is, that while Minthorne T impsios was at AJoany seeking to screen those who had broken up the ballot boxes and corrupted the elections in Richmond ceunty, be actually prexided at a mee -tee at which >4,600 was raided to aid the iuhs bitants of Kantas to protect the sanctity of their ballot b< xes and preserve the purity of tneir elections. On ooe night, a? presiding officer, he said "he was aiding the people of Kansas to do what was a holy duty ia '76," and on the next night he bore in triumph to our island the pardon wnish was to detent cur inhabitants in thei: efforts to discharge a similar duty.

IMoi* Recorder Saltk.

The District Attorney stated that the deceased was a ohm about the mm age as the prisoner, a citir mender by occupation, and that m an altercation which took plaoe ia the Sixth Ward, on the afternoon of the 16th of February, between hiaaseif and the prisoner, he receded injuries which resulted in hie death. The testimony for the prosecution, he thought, would go to eetab'ish a ease ef Manslaughter in the fourth degree. He tben read the deposition of the doctor who attended the poet mortem examination, from which it appeared that the death of If e? rath resulted from concession of the bra'n. Bridget Hurley wae then called to the stand, and testi fied that the deceased came into the tenemeat house where she lived about 3 o'clock on the afternron of the 15th o' February last, and asked i( she had any work for him; Mai told that she had not, he left; en going out be me: the prisoner O'Connor in the passage, and aa altercation took plaee; witness saw the deeeased strike ths prisoner with a chair several time*, bat did net see toe prisoner strike deceased; they clinotoed, and both fcli together, the deceased on top; after they got up they were se Kated, and deosaaed went into tne basement oocupied John Divan; sat down in a chair, and soon at er died. John Divan and John Hpllan both testified to the same facts, and neither ef them saw the prison tr strike de ceeied. The Die tr lot Attorney said that the testimony taken be fore the Coroner went to show that the prisoner followed the decsssed alter tbey were separated, an i kicked him on the head, but thsre being no evidence on tne trial that such were the facts be eaw no grounds for proceed ing aay farther with the trial. Tbe Recorder was of opinion that the testimony had failed to convict the prisoner oi any offeoce, and so in structed the jury, who immediately rendered a verdict of not guilty. GRAND LARCENY ? RECOVERY OP THE PROPERTY. Ua thai me Fariey, Sarah Murray and Ann Kelly, three daughters of Krln, were oonvicted on Mcnday last of robbing William Conroy of $1,000 in gold, together with a silver snuff box, a gold oraoe et, and a Ooit's revolver The prcpei ty was alleged to have bt en taken from the trunk of Conroy by the prisoners, who lived in toe name tenement, during hie abeenoe from tbe hocuse on Sunday, Feb. 17, 1860. Tbe Recorder deferred the sentence ot the women until Saturday next, ami told them that if tbe money was not restored by that time he would impose the extreme penalty of the law. Meanwhile his Honor devised a plan for the reoovery of the property which proved successful. He had a private interview with one of the prisoners, from whem he obtained information whioh lncneed him to send Officers Walsh, O'Hiely. Gaughsn, Gray, Farley and Flanagan in search of the treasure. They, proceeded to the nocse o' Daniel Kelly , , a brother in law of one of the prisoners, !iving *u Pniro avenue, near Twenty-third street, Brooklyn ano arrestee his ?ite Minn, whom they brought to New Yo;k an! placed in tbe Fourteentn ward station houi-e, where she was searched by a female, and $7 Ob of the money tonne tit d up In a bag and las.eneti aoout her body underneath her clothes. Daniel Kelly, the husband of Flleo, and a man named HcCuUom were also arrested by the officers, and after tone delay were prevailed upon to restore ih? snuff- box and brace et. The greater portion of the pro perty has thus keen restored to the owner, whn i-t a poor man, and had been aespoi ed by this roobery of the her^ earnings of a li'e time. Great credit i? due to the R' corder who deviied, and to the officers who executed thi> scheme tor the detection of the vill tins who held posse' sion of th? property, and who will no doubt be c xapelleo to suffer the pumsnment which they so richly deserve.

NOIET MARK BT. Wednesday, March 19 ? 6 P. M. The stock market is in a very unsettled condition In some of the most prominent speculative stocks

the daily transactions continue large; but price-* fluctuate so irregularly that neither buyer nor seller seems to get the advantage. The brokers are com pelled to confine their operations to each other. Outsiders, as a general thing, have no interest in the market. They are in favor of lower prices, so as to give them a better opportunity to comc in At the first board to-day Illinois Central bonds ad vanced i per cent; Reading Railroad, 1; Hudson River Railroad, 1; Michigan Central, j; Panama, 2; New York Central Railroad, ?. Nicaragua Transit declined 4 per cent; Erie, j; Cleveland and Pittsburg, 1; Cleveland and Toledo, 1. It will be seen by these variations that while some stocks of doubtful value advanced considerably, others of similar character fell off about the same extent. The movements of regular stock speculators, in the absence of any other influence, keep prices run ning up and down a fraction or bo per day, so as to not permit the machinery to stop altogether. The brokers are patiently waiting for something to turn up. They are much in want of something startling and important to relieve the dull monotoby of Wall street. The Nicaragua Transit outrage has nearly passed away from the minds of speculators, and something else is now required to get up au eic'.tement. From Europe we cannot look for mucl'. A sudden breaking up of the Peace Conference, and departure of the negotiators without an amicable conclusion, would certainly be something of an ex citing character; but we do not look for such an un fortunate result. Prom Washington we can look for nothing of interest. The Central American affair a d the Crampton difficulty have become flat and stale, and the public mind cannot be again easily agitated by these subjects. The season is even against any favorable influence. With a snow storm that would do credit to January, it is enough to discourage all who look for the effect of mild and pleasant wea ther upon business operations. Holders of stock must be content to wait the return of May. By that time we bhall, beyond a doubt, be relieved from all the drawbacks of closed navigation and inter rupted communication, and every department of business will be, we trust, in full and successf ( operation. After the adjournment of the board the following sales of bonds and stocks were made at auction:? 160 ?har??

Chicago and Rhode Island Railroad sold at 95 per cent, cash. The usual dividend of this company will, we learn, be made at the usual time It is still doubtful about the dividends of other West era roads coming due about this time.

The month opened unfavorably. With limited receipts, the expenses have been unusually large. Very few railroads in the Northern, Eastern and Western States have made more than their operating ex penses since the 1st of Janaary. The returns of the New Orleans banks for the week ending March 8, show an increase in specie f 1634,146, in circulation $196,506, in deposits $318,032. The total amount of loans March 8, 1856, was $22,234,686, against $18,919,918 on the 5th of March, 1865, showing an increase this year of (3,312,786.

The Beard of Trade returns for the month ending the 31st of January were issued on Wednesday morning, and show an increase in the declared value of our exporta tion* still larger than thai exhibited la the preceding month. It was then ?1,470,968, and in the present in stance it is ?1,609,690. lhis is partly attributable is the impulse given to operations of all kind a during the last two wee?s ot the period by the announcement of peace, citton, linen and woollen yarns having teen largely shipped to the continental manufacturers, who t&en re gained confidence. Almost all classes of goods, however, have participated in the increased busine-s, with tne ex ception ot cotton manufactures, the tailing off in which was to be ex pec led after the extraordinary increase pre semed in the previous return. It is to be remarked, however, that thin falling off is intrinsically greater than it appears, fince allowance must be made for the advance la (be price of the staple since the corresponding m-nth of last year. A further improvement in the total of ha berdashery, and a moderate increaae in hardwares, cut lery, ana leather, tend to indicate a revival in the Aus tralian trade.
