Events, In their peaoliar hue, are rapidly progressing and bocomlag more anted la this eeuatry. This month they have beea somewhat varied In character from those cf the last, instead of kidnapping and holding for ransom, we have had, us leading loptcsopea, barefaced plun dcr of entire populations, varied on some occaslen* by wholesale destruction of property aad massacre. Instead of only Instances of savago warfare la the murder of opposlbg chiefs, we have heard the cry of "Death to Foreigners" ratBed, and seen the mangled remalnB of one victim carried to the grave, as.I foreigners, in come quenoe, drawing nearer to each other and arming in selfdefence. Instead of individual complaints against the ffflVHrnmiinf fnr Khil fvilk in hii! navlna duhla Innw nuar due, we have ww one univorsa) cry of the creditors of thts natiwr. for the truth Is, that on tha 17th inst. Ilia government issued a decree suspending all payment* for two years?a virtual repudiation?and the most singular act te he noticed is, that this repudiation was voted by Congress, which body stood divided 112 for to 4 against the measure. Instead of hopes of peaco, which, however feeble, Misted wheu the last month closed, wo find ourselves In lbs depths ef abject despair and the troubles , arising thicker and faster on all sides. floti. Ortega has been out for nearly s month In pursuit of Marques, but has utterly failed to accomplish anything. Marques, with his force, after paying an expensive visit to the mines of Kc-al del Monte and Pachuca, took a sweep through the Llaaus ds Apsm, round by Chalula, so oa to Matak moroe Isucnr, sad up Into the mountainous regions again w. ... to the so?Ih and west of this valley?dsscribiug in the . campaign of a mouth a complete sircle. General Ortega * - hadhenn tuimt of Via itme oloss.on hts lieois, ag<l <?hos < cstne up with his rear guard and cut It pretty well to pieces. Aftar fluctuating for a short time near us Mxrquoz fell back to the lower range of mountains, that divide the plains of Iguala and Cuernavaca and spangle off towards Tolucs, Tssco and the Mescala river. Jlo took Iguala ou the 19th, after sustaining a short resistance, in which Bot more than twon'y men were killed on both sides. General Ortega has hummed up the passages leading to the plain of Iguala, and the only chance tor Marquez to gei off, without first fighting, is through tho mountains into the plain of Toluca. Marquez, however, I was at tho last datus in a very strong position, bo huvlng possession of tlie poitks known as the l'tatanillo awl Ins Amates, the former being one of the most difficult passages to make In the whole country. MtMis and Velez, in the meantime, hold the road to the interior at their mercy, and havo put a period to all correspondence by the regular mails. Their forces are con Ulcrable, and those of Mcjia have signally distinguished themselves by razing to the ground the town of Uuichapam, and putting to death many sf the Inhabitants. Besides these " organized" balds there are others known as ' Studios," (loose fish) who sanctify their sets of rapino and murder by crying out " religion." As if to add new fuel to tho flume, or anothor goblin tribune to the incantation scene of this expiring nation, we now bear, ex President Oomonfort is already in the Held. The certainty is that lie is in the republic, and his presence on Mexican oil tends little to consolidate the slinky national fabric. Omwnfort has a gsod name and inspires considerable coufldrnce, but we fcur if ho do come to the centre of the republic ho will llnd it is a day aflor tho fare?for this country is nearly, if notslrcady a wreck, s 'lhe mail for tho last packet had gcarcely left this when we received advices of the occupation of Pachuca by the forces of Marquez. This took place on the 2-Sth uli. The mall garrison of Pachuca, so soon an attacked, retired to Real del Monto, where they made a temporary resistance, and then fled. The second in command was maite prisoner and shot. On entering Pachuca the furces of Marques were too mucn occupied wim moir enemies to uevote their time to sacking, pillaging and outraging the population. At Real del Monto, however, they had no xuoh obstacle and the consequence w an that I he place was llioroaghly pillaged. We hear of many barbarities having been committed upon the persons of the residents. Dr. Griflln.au old and peaceable Knglisli resident, is reported to have reveived a serums wound in the face (rum one of Marquee's brutal followers. Oilier atrocities of a still more alarming character are said to bavo been committed, but the fear ot exciting the ill will of the clergy party has,invented thn truth from being told. Marqueza stay ia I'achuca was not long. Gen. Ortega, with a force of some three thousand men, left hereon the 26th. On his approach Marquez precipitated his movo ? merits, both military and monetary. He took Trum the Real del Monte Company $50,000 in cash and the same amount In bills. From other persons he gut almut ! $100,1X10 more. From the silver reducing establishment he seized over flvo hundred horses and carried otf all the moles he could llnd. Altogether he made a good haul at I'achuca and Real del Monte, and has left that mining dis trict quite paralyzed, and great want must follow, unless we have a speedy restoration of order. The Real del Monte Company alone employs over six thousand pooplo, and its products are near three millions of dollars per annum. During the month one of the ovents which has caused most sensation has been the murder of H. M. llealo, ono ot the very old British residents of Mexioo, at his residence at the village of Maples. The news of this melancholy event reached here early on ths morning of the Ttli, and caused that degree of terror and alarm (not surprise) which similar events ara likely to create among people who exist in a state of anxiety for their own lirtS and property. The facts g( Hi'tk muTditr are as follows:? About eleven o'clock on the night of the 6th a force of some twenty-live or more uieu on horseback made their Appearance in the village of Naples. They woro woll armed, and came in with a trumpet sounding, f^oou aftor entering the place?which by the way is an embryo village of five or aix Iioiuick?they mode a descent upon tlio house of Mr. Healc, which is the principal one, and commenced to lire at the windows and doors. All the inmates of the house appear to have been in bed. Mr. Beale was awakened, and it is believed was wounded by Jhe first discharge. Ho at once got up, and, rushing tA thtwoom of an old lady (Mrs. Wyliel who was stopping with Its* her to the roof of the house for salctv. He then desc ndod to the lower floor,and, being unarmed, spoke with the a??ailents, who had then broken into the houao, and offered thcM the liberty to take what they might wish, supposing, as ho had a right to do, that he could have no mortal enemies und that their object was merely to rob. lu reply to his offer and assurance that iik nun mi arms, no wan told mat thry only sought ItiS j life "as a foreigner," their mission being to kill foreign j 8 era and not to rob This doclaralion was followed by fBomo remonstrances on his part, w lieu be was struck ii|ioa . the head with a sword and ti e work of assassination commenced, ami I tLa must frightful oaths and cries of "Death to toreigners." The death of this unfortunato man has, with reason, Created a deep fooling of alarm amongst the foreign residents of this place, who cannot longer look ut>on their situation hut as precarious in the extreme. ITad many others fallen as Mr. lleale has fallen, there might have been some explanation of the act?that they had been partisans, meddlers with thnulBiirs of the country, or some of the many hose reasons which have been advanced to pull lute the murder of others of oun countrymen. Hut hero nothing of the kind can be advanced. Mr. lleale was a "foreigner" (a British subject) ^aad for being such has been murdered. The fact cannot bo changed. \Yo hnvc not only the testimony of a child who witnessed the murder of Mr. lleale and heard the threats of the assassins, but wc have Ibo fact that the houses of other foreigners in the same place were broken into, inquiries made for the owners, und, when they were found atisent, the repetition of the aamo cries of "Death to foreigners," and threat* to coins back and murder them also. It was providential that no others shared tlx fate of Mr. lleale. The author* of this atrocity are supposed to he of the 4,'ergy lorccs scattered through the Valloy. This is natural b' suppose, altlioogb the trutli will probably never be Xnov'b. ft matters little, however, of what, force or party thiV' arUl " ,H alarm,ng enough to know they have murdertv1 on0 1)4 mlr oountrymcn and threatened to serve all of us in tho samo way, and that they are still at large todoasthev Pies'0- Nothing has been done, so far as , we can learn v"1 bring the criminals to justice, and we 1 ifoar it will bo tha fatn ot ,h,s oa*? w "Ice those of Blalnee, Bennet, Ih^val- Kgarlon, Bodmer and others?ono -.j; otiot ror. a bona' huw4h <h?otttcd, ono or two nroand Mlrnca.

The factory has been abandoned since in cousequeuco of other attacks. The director is about leaving the country, the fright he received at the factory making him afraid longer to live in Mexico. Rio news of the arrival of Sr. ("omonfort In Monterey, Nuevo Loon, has considerably excited the puro or thorough democratic party Sr. Comonfort, one of the ablest mcu in Mexico, is certainly a person to he feared, but w? bope he will contribute U> restore order, rather than disturb the peace of the Interior of the republic that lias suffered so much during the last tb'ce years' contest. It is rumcred that orders have been forwarded to General Vidaurri to seat him out of the country immediately. General Ortega has been appointed I'resident acl interim Of the Supreme Court of Justice. Wo have hail a multitude of reports on the streets that Gens. Ortega and Marque?, are treating, and that they have come to terms; that lioblado and Huerta (respectively Governors. of Guanajuato and Micluwau had declared for Comonfort, fcc. But the truth Is. no rchsi.as can 1m- jilaccd In any of these.
