THE NEW ? WHOLE NO. 7263. _ MORNING YORK HERALD. EDITION? S a JURDAT, JULY 19, 1856. PRICE TWOI GfcJTTS. IMPORTANT FROM MEXICO. Another oft* from the United States for Mexican Territory? The Departure of the Spanish Fleet?Whs Confiscation of the Church Property. W# hare received by tho way of New Orleans, our cor Tespondence and tllqgj^fcfwspapers from Vera Cruzeand the city of Mexico toftefth aud 5th uut., respectively. The news is important. V'e learn that Socrctary Marry bad gust a proposition to President Comonf ? t to i.nrcLaao another slice of Mex ico. Harry's off it i* U stated, toot $9,vXK).000 for the thirty first parallel if latitude for the boundary line to the GvJf of Calif vrnim. According to our advicus President Comonfort refused to entertain tho proposition. The war on tho ekrgy wa still continued by President (Comonfort and the liberal party. 'Congress had reported a new Constitution, which declares toleration of religkm and prohibits pgoeta from holding any civil offices. The President has Issued a decree requiring the church to sell its vast real estate within throe months, and take mortgages for the purchase money. What then is to be doae with these mortgages V That is the next question which will impoverish the clergy. This docree Is only a half measure, asd, like til half measures, it will soon be found not to answer. President Comonfort has by a series of popular mea lores restored harmony in tbe ranks of the liberal party, ?nd lias thereby mado himself extremely popilar. A treaty of amity and commerce has been concluded with Sardinia, and another has aUo been mule with the Banseatic cities. Mr Bchleidcn, the Minister at Washing ton, was sc ut to Mexico to effect this important negotii ?lion, and was successful. His short residence in the Aztec capital enabled him to jecome universally reui ;t ed for his polished manners and generous hospitality. The Spanish question has been postpoLed. The Spat s'i 'Minister hai backed out fr n Lis demands, and his licet has backed ont from Verr t. It Is evident that Spa!a la afraid to push matter* tremities with Mexico, as there is a disposition ou' neighbor to fight her old mother country. What m:<v es of the formidable pre .parations at Havan:i f i th vasion of Mexico f Por >baps th<y will be expended on Walker in N'icarag"s Terhaps they will wait tor the reinforcements now on the way Irotn Spain, sent out after the unanimous vote of the Cortes to sustain tho Queen in punishing tho Mexi cans Tor their Insults to Spanish subjects; and perhaps ?they will li&sten to do something after reading the last file of Me: . can papers, ridiculing those warlike demon strations. Spain has becomo v?jy low, with even Mex ico laughing at her. Our City of Mexico Correspondence. Mexico, July 4, 1856. The End rf the Spanvh War-D^xiriure of the Sj>aniih Slfi? Triumph of Mexican Diplomacy? Draft of the Jfmo CvmtUution ? Church Property Sale Decree? Rati fiotavti vf Cuitycst?Ru'. ivernment Stocks. The Spanish question is settled for the present? that Is, the Spanish Miuister has c cased to be belligerent, and quietly withdraw* the fleet boi'oro Vera Cruz, lie wil be officially recognized as Minister to this country, and will hoTPafler conduct his negotiations diplomatically , in stead Jf menacingly. This result is a complete triumph for the Mexicans. They said they would not rocoguixe the Minister unt Tthe fleet was scut oD, and he sail tho fleet would not be sent oU' until the Spanish convention treaty was settled. Well, the fleet ha* lea, and the taxa tions business remains unadjusted. Furthermore, Mexi co will not pay the amount demanded, nor will this re public arrange some ether disputes which must arise on v?me other subjects. This matter is therefore postponed for the prt.'ent ; But it will soon turn op again, to aUord plenty of speculation for another excitement. Congress ha.n at last received from one of its committees ' a dralt of a new constitution, which has been duly print ed and published. To-day the discussion opens on the various sections and articles, and on the Innumerable amendments that will be proposed. This document is too I lonf tor translation, and uot sufflcie tly interesting for your columns : bull may briefly let you know what It ? tontalas. A lederal government is proposed, with a Pre sident elected for lour years; and one Legislative Cham ?er, whose members will be c. wen for two years. There g 00 Senate? no Vivo lTcsldont. The Chief Justice is to ict as President in case of vacancy. In almost all other mpcctn the constitution Is borr jwed from the constitution ?f the l ulled Mates. It Is truo. then; are some modtttca (taMfcnd addition)', which the peculiar ? ondition of Mexi ec requires, but In all Its outlines and general features It tl Identical with ours. Congress has the revision of and the power to ratify treaties, as well as to conOrm nominations made In the army and navy, but no control over appointments in the civil service. The first section is devoted, in thirty-four articles, to the "rights of man," which is for the most fait a itcral translation of the American "Bill of Rights." \*o this, however, there are some adiiuons, such as arti cle 10. which says, "In the republic aU are born free; daves that touch on the nation*! teri itory will by that act rective their liberty, and etjoy the protection of the laws." Agsin, in article 11, "Treaties shall never be -made for the extradition of political criminals. vihat Is, guilty of political cumes) nor lor other olleuce* perpetrated Hit slaves, in nations where the crime was done by a ?wre or Mares." Tim largest liberlv Is given to free apeecli t>ee writing and printing, and*re? elites or the people. In rai l, all the prlvileg-s which can be conceded to an individual are grantol herein. The sc< end, third and iourth ^octions define the rights 1 of Mexican rltlxena and torelgnera.

A tax of five per cent Is to m paid into tho public treasury upon the value of every mortage as it Is given. And this, it is supposed, will amount to many millions of dollars in % few months. Ike interest on each mortgage is still is still to be paid to the chui ch in the same manner as heretofore the rent was paid. But the mortgagee cannot be cancelled, nor can the church exerctse auy right of ownership over this lien except to enforce the payment of the interoft annually. The church is further prohibited hereafter from pur chasing or holding roa> estate, and ail loans of money or other business done by any of that body mint be authen ticated before a notary, who is required within one week to inform 'he prop?i authorities of the same. Such id the general >. ituri of this new stringent mea sure adopted by tho government against the church. Within i 'T months mt- tgages will be executed to the amount of two hundrod millions of dollar s, and then the government will Ismio anothe- decree, seizingthese mod gages for the use of the public treasury. Th>re is orn drawba( K, however, to all this. Many suppose that a revolution will ensuo, when those decrees and all pro eroding 'toder thtwi #ill be ?tnnulled. It Is said ttiat in this event the Mext e: n purchasers would lose all they iu vested in the speculations; while it Is supposed that foreigners who acquire^ property by force of the law would bo able to bold, as their governments would inter fere to protect them in their legal rights. But, in order to ipeet tius difligulty, tee government will place those mortgages bejotr! the reach of any revolutionary move ment. With this fund, which cannot bo turned into cash for a long time, but where the interest will always be promptly paid, the government will form a basis as a pledge upi n which to procure a foreign loan, and these mortgages will be put up as a collateral security to securo the prompt payment of interest on tho public bonds as it falls due. There Is no doubt a loan of fifty millions of dollars can be th is obtained; and if Mexico stipulate* in the debt that in the event of a failure to pay interest, diplomatic intervention will be concede led where foreigners a.-e interested, no future government will U ire to molest this socurity. You will perceivo tl at by this method all foreign nations will be Interested in protecting these mortgages, where their people are in ne tilted from their investments in this new Mexican loan. 1 need only add that this decree of Comonfort's was published last Friday, and on the next day Congress at ied the act with great unanimity. The credit of the kO' ernment immediately U ok a rite, and govemnient i>aper advanced ten, fifteen und tweniy per cent. Our Vera Crux Correspondence. Ytju Cues, July 7, 1858.

The Fbrbt > ami Barrow Com. 1 enclose a decree signed by th) now Presiecnt, by which all holders of property belonging to civil or eccle siastical corporations become proprietors of the same, continuing to pay, however, tho rent or1 interest at six per cent, payable to tho former parties. The next step of course will be to make the six per oent payable to.thefnational treasury; and even nowthe gov" crnment will derive a considerable Income, as the transfer will cost live per cent, which mil amount to about fifteen milllois. Tho mint of the capital has just been rented at half a million of dollars. Government lias raised the embargo aid on tho Span ish bonds, and a Coi.imissioner will pro- ee I to Madrid, t? lay before the Spani. u government the tacts of iho case, proving that lots of illegal debts had entered the conven tion. and the expulsion of which is said to have been de msnded by the other creditors themselves. The Spat iarils will receive in paymeut 8 per cent of all impctt duties, which is a new proof that the prtsent go vernment lias the good wit to pay, and it will also hare the meanp, as bcfc.des the above mentioned iccome, our liberal urilt is working well, and heavy importations art made. It now remains to be seen how long our great states man Marcy will keep up his theory that Mexico must not be pressed, that she is |>oor, and tiod knows what other nonsense; which has alufaye been put forth to k?ip OUT citizens Qui ol their owiut IheuiDF depredations committed under former governments. ?

THO particulars oft most Toul and cold blooded murder have Just come to light. Bartholemew Burke, the porter in the tailoilng establishment of Mr. Bamuel Joyce No 878 Broadway , corner or White street, was found brutally murdered yesterday morning in the store or his employer The deceased was in the habit of sleeping lu the store, aad is supposed while he was lying in bed he was attacked and murdered. About half past 11 o'clock on the night previous deceased was seen sitting at oae of the side Wln. dows in White street, and seemtd to bo convening with LTD,7 .m ?rpo6He 10 him- 71,0 app'? keeps the stand at the corner of Wblto street and Broad q'!'UJlP0i"ive sbe 8aw deceased talkiug to this "ttbe bour ,bo*0 meutio-ed. The doceosad was never seen alive after this. Who. the wo.kmen and clerks in the employment of Mr. Joyce went to the store yesterday morning they were astOLuhed to t'nd the door ocked. They knocked loudly, i>ut no signs of lire within could be discovered. The door was then forced ojien, when, to the surprise or all, a large pool of blood was discovered on the floor quite close to the bed or deceased. Drops of blood leading to a closet or ai te room off me main store were then followed; on opening the door they were horror stricken. On the floor, in .corner near the wash basin, was the ?, ';ed body of the port mangled and cut in the most shocking manner. The en tire room and walls were covered with bloud, in drops and large clots. The deceased's throat was cut almost from ear to ear by some sharp instrument, while on right 8lJe of forehead was a fracturo ct about six inches in length, evidently produced by a largo pressing iron which was lying within a few feet of the eor|*.., u ! covered with blood. The gold watch and chain usually worn by decoai >d oould not be round neither could the keys or the store be round, showing cvl' dently that the murderer had locked the door after making Lis escape, and had* taken the keys along with him. The bank book or the deceased was also miss.ng and it is supposed to have been stole by the murderer. Ti e large table in the warerooms used lor tailoring purposes was stained with blood, and marks or bloody fingers upon its surface could be easily discernible. On the cot or bed or deceased was fouad the scabbard or a sword, while upon a case or goodj some twenty reot dis taut was discovered the sword iUeir. The wespon was covered with a bloody cloth, but it did not bear any stain of gore at all. Tlie i.'cneral appearanco or the room in which the mur dereii man was found was truly sickening, and was enoufch to make the stouten heart quail. The deceased ? ithout any clothing except a linen shirt, lay in a cranni ed up position in a corner iormed by a set or bureau drawers aud the side Wall or the building. The lees Th?h?aU! 1U 'I10 entiru bodjr was co,rered with blood' fhe hands were closod. as If death had not taken ,, lace without some violoat struggle.

The wounus appeared to have been intiicted with a razor. Further down aad imn.n iliatcly over the ?houlderblado were severo bruises .ls it made with a dull but heavy weapon. Across the'en tire forehead, about three or four inches above the eves was a fracture of tfce skull, produced by the !harp ed^5 or some instrument. The laree aud square end or the ' ?r. *<osc,' called hjr tailors, would have u J KUcb a ; ?clur?> M it wii3 covered with '! pr.f l',m',tion u ^ fho blow upon the skull WK given witti this iron.
