The reception given to Mr. Wei. tor was of the mott cordial oharacter, and after the con clusion of the usual formalities Mr. W oiler presented to President Juarez his credentials and delivered the folloir' log speech:? MR. WHISK'S STKJtCH. Mr. Pmenipetct?1 have the honor of prerenting to your Excellency a letter from the President of the tinted States ot Amentia, appointing rao FJivoy Rxtraordinary and Minister I'leni|Kiteutlary to represent that govern ment neat the republic of Mexico. In piosonling those r redout tab, your Excellency will permit me to observe that whilst it is my particular province to watch over the la tor est* of my ooui.trymea, and abstain from intermed dling with the local affilrs of the republic of Mexico, I will, ui v< i thelM*, take great pleasure in doing all in my power to secure the permanency of your constitutional government, as it now exist*. The efforts of your Exoal tency to preserve law and order, to protect persons and property, and to carry out those great principles of libetlf which censiitnte the foundation of every re publican government,. have given you an exalted position amongst the lovers of free institutions in every part of the civilised world. May I not also con gratulate your Kxcelienoy upon the termination of the war which has been waged ug iinst tho constitution and the bwg of the republic? Under the benign influences of peaoe I trust that the vast and inexhaustible resources of this great nation may bo fully develope'l. I fervently pray that tbe friendly relations now so happily subsist ing between our r< .-<|>ective governments may never be dislinhed, ana that all our future contests may be ae to "Which shall do the most to promote the happiness of the people and extend the blessings of republican institutions. TUK I HSSlM-lNTS tU'KKCH. "Mr MnnmcR?It is very pleasing to mo to receive from the hands of your Excellency the letter in which hia Supreme Exoellen y the President of tho United Stiles of Amorxa tii' reditu you us Envoy Extraordinary and Minister l'lentpoli iiliarj of that nation nour the govern ment of the republic "f Mexico. I see. also, with much tut is fact ion, that v our Excellency, as representative of a republic with which such iirm bonds of ftlTrtshlp unite my own country, is disposed to c<> operate towards tho fitrengihening tho cnstitutiomU regime, lately re Stored by the Mexican people at so much cost. This C" operation will gruatly assist my government in Its great desire to st:sttiu crdor, law and the duvelopu inent of tbe great principles of liberty belonging to our insti utii lis. I received with pleasure the congratu lations wlicb your Excellency has been pleased to ad - drew to mo upon the termination of the civil war: and peace once secured, my constant efforts will be directed towards maintaining the most cordial relations between Mexico ana the I nited plates, and from which will re Suit, not only the prosperity of our countries, but also it will cause the extension of liberty throughout the civil ized world Your Excellency will meet in my govern ment the beet disposition to maintain and strengtaeu tho rotations which ??? happily exist between Mexico ami tbe American l n<on; and 1 can assure his Excellency tbe President ot tbe United States that 1 will make the greatest efforts for the preservation of the peaoe and prosperity of tha? great people who, upon our continent, have marked out to humanity the path of true civilization. The crowd was quite great, and had moro notice been given the numbers of tboso desiring to be present on this occasion would have been much increased. Those pre sented by Mr. Weller wero Major Gillespie, Secretary of tho Legation; Mr. Elgoe, late United States Charge d'af faires, upon taking leave of the 1'resideat; Mr. John Black, United .--tatei Consul, and Master J. B. Weller, Jr. Here ended the formal speech making, after whish the President and Governor Weller had a hearty eh iking of hands, a few exchanges of compliment, and the reception ended. Governor Weller is to have an interview with the members of tbe Cabinet to-morrow. Upon leaving the 1 "alace Mr. Weller was saluted by a guard of honor, un l was distinguished by the marked attentions of the officers Of the government In my last by the English packet, via Havana, I in formed you of the ministerial crisis and the resignation of the old Cubinct, and the formation of a new one, with Senor Zarco at the head. The new <abit ot meets the views of the people at this moment Tbe m< robots who are here are at work on a political programme which, it is announced, is nearly ready for publication. Senor ogazon is Governor of Ja lisco, aiid is now in that State. Senor Ansa is acting Covet nor of Zac?teens, und also absent. Their posts aro now filled by Senors Zarco and Ramirez?the latter for Public Works and the former for the Interior. The diplomatic difficulties aro daily growing lees, and would be entirely dissipated by the influence of the Uni ted States. if it were not for the social broils that unfortu nately threaten us at home, on account of tho secession movements at the South. The manifest weakness of our govi rnment at home has given great strength to tho conservative or absolute party in Mexico, who, with reason. ai eue that if tbe United States, with all their million* ot intelligent people, cannot hold togetlior, how can it tie expected that Mexico, with Its scanty popula tion of Indians and mixed bloods, can ever establish a respectable fed oral government? The argument certainly is a crusher. Tbe evil eff. cts upon Mexico of tho example of South Carolina are already being felt. San Luis Potoai has been the scene of an open violation of the federal constitution. The Governor and legislative body of that State will not agree. The Assembly attempted to bully the Governor, who, getting in a rage, sent some of Its members to prt??. and sent others out of the State. In Michoacsn Gov. liuerta has broken through the constitution by ex ercising arbitiory powers. Yidaurri has boon accused criminally for ccng the same, and I dare say wo shall not long wait before oth"r cases will be reported. Tbe elections tor Presidential electors are going on. So far it is hard to say who stands tho best chance of tho three canddates in the field. So far as I can judge, the following is about tlie way the strtfe stands at present:? Eor Senor Iterdo?Vera Cruz, Tobatoo, Yucatan, Mexico and Tamaclipas. Eor Senor Juarez?Chiapas, Oajaca, Guerrero, Jalisco, Koero Ijpoo and Mtchoacan. For Sen* Ortega?/acalecas, San l.uis, Guanajuato, Queretaro and Agua-callentcs. Tho remaining Mates uncertain. VUe peculiar stale of the country requires an active man, and it u ill, I consider, be n great misfortune if ,'uarex be elected, lie has b< en a m<?t capit.it person for tue struggle just ended, tut he clearly is not the man to keep the country Irani subsiding into another war. Lerdo and Ortega, I' they oould only hitch together, would make a governmt nt for tlie time?. I hope and beliovo that one of these gentlemen will be the favorite of tbe nation, although it is hard to say, for there arn so many petty ambitions to gratify that it suits most of tho t^overaors of tbe States to liave a weak man at tho hoad of affairs. The old party aro again at work here with fye<U ac tivity, and if care be not taken we shall have trouble. Tlie clergy aro venomous against all (?erftoua connected or sympathliing with the literal party. fbere can he no question that they have armed assist I ils to go about at night to kill foreigners. One Euglistnan has bet n killed, and an American by the uamc of Eohse was struck at with a dagger tint cut bis shirt collar and furrowod op the skin tic his neck. Scarcely a night passes but some foreigner receive* the attentions of these ruffians. /ulixtgn, who now calls himself President of Mexico, is with Vksrio, < oboe und others at Iijuala, and lias, alto gether, near '."OO men about him. Mejta Is still in the Sierra lie lately murdered all the officers be made prisoner* at Rtuverde, Some 20 odd lu all. With respect to these two parties the government is not acting In tho moat enercetic manner. The Hpeiiish Ambassador, with his troop of bishops, tho Arctb shup ol Mexko the rope's N'uticio, 4c., left hers ssveial da>s ago At l*tiebla they receivod no gr<?ta<gbsof respect, although that is one of the most priest ridden beh+ in all Mexico, and at Vera Cruz, where tbey arrived on the 27tb, they received stones in?tead of a hospitable reception Irom tl?B citizens. Uov. Zamora. urged on by public op nlon In Vera l.'ruz, addressed the general government, sug/esting that the Archbishop and bishops be tried nud punished according to the laws of the land for being the cause of so much mischief to the country. Tlie government replied that Its order of ex pulsion most l>e complied with The reasons for this de ciMoti are tnat the pn wnee of the bisho(ia in the country gives hope to their partiraus, who are working actively in nil parts nf the country, and their removal at once f n m the sooeor dist ord will relieve the itovernment from a grnat deal of anxi< ty. Weak >s w this reasoning, it is nevertheless good at this moment. Diaz is to he brought here for trial, and I consider the chunoes of his ulttmate punishment very fair. Ibe sales, or rather adjudications, of clergy property, under the law of c-?uOscatioo, are going on rapidly, ana cnMnte in the tit t-s of tbe government Is ln< reasiiiK it m Ui be I eared, however, that the government will he swindled out of h great portion of the wealth that lias He suddenly dropped into IU hands, through the trickery ? f the boat of knaves who now Infest the national 1 a lace.

The to gltlmale (OfMtMal p whioh has not ceased to exist for a single day, whose le^tlinai y emanate* from the institu tions of the country and lbe will of the people, cannot recognise, as a goveromt ut, tbe faction of Ttcubaya, solely because aeveral of ibo foreign repreaentailvaa chose to treat with it as such. Tb>> government cannot I be responsible for tbia error of diplomacy, nor for the I connivance of foreign miniate? wiib that faction. Tbe goveti ment will exert ise its rights with moderation and dignity. It will provoke no conflict it proteata before the world ita sincere desire to keep on friendly relatione with all nations, and to fulfil all the international engage ments to which it is bound by treaties and by the law of , nations. It considers that the government of a few j fricudly nations bi?ve been badly informed of the sltua ti< n of Mexico. Worts on tbe part of the government 1 will be made to have tbe truth known; and, guided by a spirit of conciliation and justice, the government will en d. uvor to regulate, in a satisfactory manner, all pending questions by I he best possible means practised through out the civilised world, for maintaining harmony Mid ooncord amocgBt friendly nations. Ibe publication of this able document, which is from the pen of Senor Zarco, baa caused a gooa effect upon the forenpi repreaenUtivea. M. de SaJigny has already j called at the Mexican Foreign Oflice and made curiam propoaala to recognise, and the Prussian Minister, who really doea not amount uch.

So far I hoar of no relief having gone to San Luis, but I suppose tbe government will scon be moved to action.

This step will doubth-ss check tho Impudent I muendr in which mauy pononahave I eeu at work to pro | duce a revolt In tbi.s city. Tbe clergy have made exten sive use of the viaticum to get np disturbances The otl.cr night, at one of tho churches, the viaticum startod followed by a lot of women, with boils in their bands. A largo crowd was at once raised and the police were I obliged to interfere and make several arrests I may I fay, by way of ?xplanation, that the stupid old ceremony of iM.r<*npanyuig the viaticum with a bell b ty has been I suppressed by the government, aud the clergy, therefore I got these old women to maie fools of themseivoa The election returns frem the States already received show a decided majority for Senor I,erdo over his two < onpetitorg.
